Miami influencer Nebby B. of @woah.nebbz spills her business secrets and lets us in on some of her challenges and strengths of being her own brand. You can also learn a thing or two to help out your own brand.
How long have you been actively creating content?
I have been a content creator officially for about 7 months.
Where are you originally from and how long has Miami been your home?
I am originally from New York, born and raised. I moved to Miami last year to finish my Bachelors Degree in Visual Arts.
What’s your favorite place in Miami to take friends that are visiting?
As far as favorite place goes, I find that I’m more of a homebody in Miami then ever if this was New York I think I could give you a list from here to China but, alas it not. If I had to give you a suggestion, I think I would just say the moon beach on a full moon. The beach serves as a little oasis and collects all of Miami’s free-flowing life loving people. They gather around and make bonfires and have drum circles, and to me, it’s just a feel-good environment.
What are some of your favorite local brands/businesses that you worked with?
A brand that I have worked with that happened to be local was Diva Boutique.
What can local businesses do to gain more exposure on social media?
There are a few more brands that I have seen in the area that have not been getting as much as exposure on social media then I thought they would, I think that maybe some fun giveaways or contests are a great way to not only get their brand circulating but also getting their engagement a bit hire at the same time. Kind of killing to bird with one stone if you will.
What is your biggest challenge as a content creator?
I find as a content creator my biggest challenge is engagement, sadly I used to fall short in this department but lately, I have been coming up with some cool ways to get to know my followers and allowing them to get to know me.
What do you consider your strongest skill?
My strongest skill is my ability to stay positive and focused. Throughout my life, I find that these are obstacles people have trouble with and at the same time I can very easily handle multiple challenges at once without losing focus or becoming agitated.
What book are you currently reading? What book has had the biggest impact on your life?
I am currently reading “Unleash the Power Within” by Tony Robins, but I have to say a book that changed my life is hands down “The Alchemist” By Paulo Choelo. The story of a young man’s journey not only through the world but simultaneously through his heart.
What equipment do you use?
I have two spotlights, a canon camera, and my handy dandy iPhone XR Max. I will be setting up soon for YouTube so I have been slowly preparing my office to double as my YouTube scenery.
