Influencer Sessions: Get to Know @efcarrot

June 1st, 2023 by

We caught up with photographer and fashion and beauty creator Federica to discuss the importance of static images for creators, navigating the world of influencer marketing, and the importance of protecting your peace on social media. 

Check out the full interview below!

Tell us about your background and how you started to build your following. 

I started to be on social media when Myspace and Netlog were the most famous platforms (so a long time ago!). I always loved to spend time on social media and for me, it was a hobby.

Beside that, I always studied Art (even when I was a child) and I continued to study it through high school and also at the Griffith Academy (where I studied Cinema and Photography). I think those mix of interests (art + social media) brought me to where I am right now. I’ve been on Instagram for years and I started to build a community in my free time.

Which platforms do you predominantly use? Which is your favourite?

My main audience is on Instagram where I have a community of 37.5K+ amazing young supporters. I love Instagram and it’s my favourite app to use. I prefer to focus on one social network to better boost my online presence but I’m also building my community on TikTok and recently I’m starting to use Twitter and LinkedIn also (amazing platforms!).

What type of content do you create, and which type works best for your audience?

My favourite content (and my community’s favourite) was and it will forever be (I guess) the permanent Instagram feed post with one static image. You know, Reels and Stories are new stuff and I feel a little old school sometimes.

Obviously I create Reels and Stories to reach more non-followers and to engage with my community but I love feed posts. As a photographer I see in images and pictures a lot. Videos are cool and fun but one image can literally tell a story with one frame. I also like carousels with different pictures and sometimes they work great!

How would you define “influencer marketing”?

I live in Italy and here when you say “influencer” the majority of people will laugh at you, seriously. Here it’s hard to understand that it’s a full time job. I like to define myself as a Content Creator which I think fits with me but I think “influencer marketing” it’s a huge underwater world that needs to be uncovered. I love this world but sometimes it’s hard to navigate in it.

I also see a lot of different ideas, and misunderstandings about it. I just think it might need to be more transparent, clear and defined.

Have you worked with brands before? How do you decide which brands to work with?

I have worked with brands for years and in 2022 I decided to switch to the next level. I started creating content for free, just for fun and to explore the collaborative universe.

Now, I’m very experienced and that’s why I only accept deals in line with my values, ideas and vibes. Of course I only accept partnerships with a budget in line with my profile. Now that’s my job and I’m super confident about what I do.

How do you think influencer marketing will change over the next 12 months?

It’s hard to answer. This year I personally saw a lot of interest in UGC for example. I love to create that kind of content and I do it daily for different brands and agencies. I think influencer marketing will slightly become similar to the UGC world which will be more wide, open and creative.

How has influencer marketing changed since you began working within social media?

It has changed a lot. Being an influencer was super difficult and exclusive to few fortunate ones. Now even small or micro influencers can work, with even 1k/10k+ followers. Years ago it was about followers, now it’s about engagement and that’s why the game has changed so much. Then TikTok and the covid pandemic both made a huge impact. People now tend to buy stuff after seeing a video on TikTok.

Influencer marketing changes every day and that’s why I like it!

Do you use any software to help create and edit your content?

Yes, I like to include in my workflow softwares like Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, or Canva. I also like some apps such as InShot, CapCut, Lightroom mobile, Meitu. It depends on what the content is and what edits it requires.

How do you balance your online and offline lives?

During 2022 I moved home for the first time in my life (I’m 27 years old). It was an amazing thing because now I’m independent but it was also super stressful. The best part of having

an online job is that you can do it from anywhere and when you want. Now I live with my boyfriend and I’m learning how to balance my work and the couple-life. It’s a little bit hard but I’m on my way to finding a strategy to live my online and offline life better.

Which influencers inspire you?

During my career I was so inspired by Italian influencers such as Anna Penello, Alice Basso or Giulia de Lellis. At one point I figured out that following particular profiles wasn’t good for me, because aspiring to be as successful as someone else isn’t the way to success. Everyone is different. Now I learned to be inspired by myself, from the lessons I learn and for the personal achieved goals.

Where would you like to take your career as an influencer?

Personally, I’m focusing more on the Content Creator side of the Influencer career. So I would love to see myself more productive and smart. I’m still learning and experimenting. I’m focusing on creating content for brand’s digital usage and to design ad strategies for brands.

An In-Depth Guide to Instagram Story Ideas in 2023

May 23rd, 2023 by

You might be thinking ‘what’s the point in Instagram Stories if they only last 24 hours?’, but in internet time, that’s plenty. Finding Instagram Story ideas to fill those 24 hours can be tough. 

You must also remember that 500 million Instagram users access this feature every day, with 58% stating that they’re more interested in a brand after viewing their Stories. That makes them pretty worthwhile in our books. 

Instagram Stories have the capacity to be more real and raw with the content they share, compared to Instagram posts, with unedited, in-the-moment pictures and videos often prioritised. However, only sharing this content to your Stories can soon become rather repetitive and boring for your audience. If you want to keep them engaged, you’ll need to start getting creative and planning ahead. 

With Pride month fast approaching, it is wise to plan your Instagram Story ideas in advance so that they remain engaging, fresh and interactive throughout the month of June. Content planning can be a tedious task, but recruiting the help of an Instagram marketing agency can make it a lot easier. Industry experts can plan a month-long content calendar filled with exciting Instagram Story ideas to spotlight your allyship for the coming month. 

Wanting fresh Instagram Story content?

The great thing about polls is that they can be about anything you want them to be about. Not only this, but they serve as a way of getting more content ideas and feedback from your audience without being overly pushy for answers. 

Say you own a press-on nail business. You can poll your audience on their design choices, purchasing considerations and wearability expectations. The social media marketer for this press-on nail business could even use the Poll feature to discover that a percentage of their audience don’t know how to apply their own nails; creating the opportunity for a future Instagram Story dedicated to teaching others how to apply their own press-on nails.

Host a Q&A

A Q&A allows your audience to get to know your team better. 

Here are just a few of the benefits:

  1. You can quickly and directly connect with your audience in a low-effort way
  2. Based on the questions you get, you can create an FAQs highlight that will live on your profile and help all future visitors 
  3. You will discover information gaps between you and your audience

Spotlight your customers

Spotlighting your customers is a great way to kill two birds with one stone. While maintaining a relationship with an existing customer, you are also attracting new ones by leveraging social proof that your product or service is enjoyable. In turn, this will increase your credibility and serve as a testimonial for your brand.

Quiz your followers!

Everyone loves a quiz, making this Instagram Story feature one of the most fun and engaging ways to interact with your followers through your Stories. Alongside this, Instagram quizzes can also offer interesting insights. 

This Pride month, if it is relevant to your brand, consider opting for a quiz that tests your audience’s knowledge on the history of Pride month.

Re-post user-generated content

If you are struggling with Instagram Story ideas, reposting UGC is an easy, yet effective way to overcome this challenge. Pride month is all about lifting others up and celebrating differences, so be mindful of those whose content you share.

Ways to set yourself up for UGC success are:

  1. Start a hashtag and encourage your followers to incorporate it into any content they share about your brand
  2. Search relevant hashtags to find posts that are related to your brand without directly tagging you

Host a giveaway

Who doesn’t love a freebie?

Hosting a giveaway is a great way to increase your reach and this Pride month is all about that! They act as incentives for others to share your content with their own network of followers, strengthening their loyalty to you. 

When hosting a giveaway, make sure you create an in-feed Post featuring all of its details and entry requirements. This way, whenever you promote it on your Story (which you can do multiple times), users will be able to access it and enter at any time.

Cool Instagram Story ideas for products/services

Share testimonials and reviews

As mentioned earlier, testimonials are a great way to improve your brand’s credibility. 

When you find a favourable review you can turn it into an aesthetically pleasing Story. Once the 24 hours are up, consider adding it to a Story Highlight for future visitors to read. 

Top Tip: create a testimonial/review template that you can simply pop your customer’s review into each time and share with ease. 

Highlight your products/services 

Every now and then you’ll want to promote your products/services in Stories. This keeps things fresh and reminds your followers of what you have to offer. 

Say you have a sale going on over on your website, posting a Story of the sale items on your Story and making use of the Shopping Sticker is a great way to drive traffic to that product and generate sales.

Announce discounts and special deals

Discounts and special deals are a win-win. People love them, and your brand generates more sales. That is why you’ll want to share this information with your audience via Stories. From here, you can share a link to your website, creating a seamless shopping experience. 

These Instagram Story ideas in particular should be loud and entice the viewer to click through, so make use of all of the animated stickers and colourful fonts that Instagram has to offer. 

Instagram Story ideas for educational content

Pride month is all about educating others, whether that’s on the history of Pride, social media advocates to follow or stories about famous members of the LGBTQ+ community. 

If this is your goal this June, then consider doing the following:

Share community news

With an array of Pride-related activities and events taking place throughout the month of June, consider sharing the information with your audience via your Stories. Being a reliable source of information will build trust with your audience. On a similar note, sharing your opinion on Pride-related news this month could make you a thought leader in the LGBTQ+ space. 

Post tutorials

Valuable, short tutorials add value to your audience. For this to work, your tutorial must be to-the-point and include bold visuals to keep your audience swiping right.

If you’re a beauty brand, consider sharing a one-Story graphic on potential makeup looks your audience could rock at their next Pride parade. Something as simple as this makes it easily digestible and shareable! 

There you have it – a detailed list of Instagram Story ideas to make sure you never run out of content this June!


How do you make a catchy Story on Instagram?

To attract attention, get creative! Include Emojis, Stickers, colourful fonts and fun language that includes CTAs.

How can I increase my Story views?

  1. Add an engagement-driving Sticker (ie, a Poll, Emoji Slider or Quiz)
  2. Add an extra Story at the end of the day 
  3. Share exclusive content on Stories (for brands this could be a 24-hour discount code and for creators a personal story)

What is the current Instagram Story trend?

The ‘Add Yours’ Sticker creates a public thread in Stories. You can customise the prompt (such as ‘show me a picture of your pet’) and wait to see who responds to it with a picture on their Story. For brands, this is a great way to encourage UGC.

How do I make my Instagram Stories interesting?

To hold your audience’s attention you can:

  1. Start a ‘this or that’ game on your Story
  2. Show how something is made
  3. Share a buying guide
  4. Create fun graphics with useful tips
  5. Create a fun quiz
  6. Start a trend using the ‘Add Yours’ Sticker
  7. Participate in a Story trend

The Snapchat Renaissance of 2023

May 23rd, 2023 by

Snapchat slipped off the map slightly in the past few years, but new Snapchat updates have given the platform a new lease of life. 

With Snapchat updates including new monetisation features for Snap creators, a brand new AI bestie, larger options for discovery and sharing, and more interactive marketing features, Snapchat is set to become a dream for users, brands and creators. 

Snapchat Updates: Engagement insights

As of 2023, Snapchat has over 383 million active users, and over 350 million Spotlight users, which is also showing a 170% uplift in annual viewership. 

The audience is still skewed towards younger audiences, with the majority aged between 18 and 24, but this can climb up to 35. 

But what are the updates the platform has implemented to keep this number climbing, and more importantly, will they work?

Snapchat Updates: Creator

Creator monetisation: Crystals

Snapchat’s update for creator monetisation has made the platform become a creator favourite, attracting some of social’s biggest names. Snapchat’s Snap Stars revenue stream reportedly splits revenue 50/50—a significantly more lucrative split than other platforms offer. 

Creators within Snap Stars are paid in Crystals—the exchange rate works out to $1 to 10 Crystals, and can be paid out once a creator has earned over 1,000 Crystals (or $100). 

Snapchat also allows Stars to earn through gifts. This is where users essentially tip their favourite creators by sending sticker-like or filter gifts, to even more expensive items like Bitmoji outfits and Lenses. Users need to purchase Snap Tokens in order to send virtual gifts.

Stories Revenue Share Program

Creators with over 50K followers, 25M views, or 12 hours of view time are eligible for Snapchat’s Stories Revenue Share Program. Creators within the program can place ads within their Stories, generating recurring revenue. 

The Program allows users over 18 to share their Story content with friends and a wider audience from one account, and even schedule Stories to go live at any time. Scheduled Stories is particularly useful given Snapchat’s new feature of tagging locations. 

Snapchat Updates: New features 


One of Snapchat’s newest features is MyAI—an artificial intelligence bestie for Snapchatters. The tool can hold a conversation, help you find gift ideas, answer trivia, and more. Users can start a chat with the bot just as they would with a real friend. 

Snapchatters can even bring their AI into group chat conversations by @’ing them, and asking questions on behalf of the group. 

The bot was initially only available to Snap+ subscribers, but has since rolled out to all users. The bot has gone viral on multiple other social platforms for people posting funny conversations, but also for safety concerns. 

The AI bot is still learning and developing, and runs on a custom version of AI tech provided by ChatGPT’s maker OpenAI. The bot can often switch from responsible adult to mischievous friend within the same conversation.

After Dark

After Dark is Snapchat’s edited version of BeReal. It’s where users can make and send content to their friends after 8PM, but recipients can only view the content after posting their own Story. The feature was added to allow users to create a space to “relive last night’s escapades.” 

This feature can not only be used by Snapchatter, but brands. Brands could post exclusive After Dark discount codes and deals to their most loyal fans. 

Snapchat Updates: Marketing opportunities 

AR Enterprises Services (ARES)

ARES allows brands to use AR tech to enhance brand experiences for users through the Shopping Suite. Through the Shopping Suite, users can access three AR elements; the 3D Viewer, AR Try-On, and the Fit Finder. Tools available within the Shopping Suite work in tandem to provide bespoke virtual shopping experiences for brands and users. 

Snapchat has been at the forefront of AR tech since its conception. ARES has made third-party integrations seamless, offering a fluid shopping experience to users that brands can leverage. AR tech makes shopping interactive and fun for users.

The Top Gaming Companies Levelling Up the Industry’s Marketing Efforts

May 17th, 2023 by

The gaming industry has come a long way in recent decades. With the rise in esports popularity, the birth of multiple new streaming platforms and the desire for community now more than ever, the gaming industry is booming, with a few top gaming companies leading the way. 

With an anticipated projected revenue of $365 billion for 2023, much of the industry’s success is synonymous with tech breakthroughs, new business strategies and cleverly-crafted marketing campaigns for launches. 

The rise in gaming marketing agencies is a major contributor to modern-day gaming companies being able to push the creative boundaries when it comes to launches and this blog will pay tribute to the noteworthy campaigns rolled out over the years. 

Keep reading to discover the top gaming companies that have contributed to the immense success of the gaming industry thus far!

The top gaming companies dominating the scene 

Riot Games – K/DA for League of Legends

To promote the League of Legends World Championship in 2018, Riot Games created K/DA, a virtual K-pop group consisting of four themed versions of League of Legends characters, Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kia’Sa. 

Voiced by (G)I-dle members, Soyeon and Miyeon, Madison Beer and Jaira Burns, the group was unveiled at the world championships with an augmented reality live performance. Since the campaign’s launch, the performance video has amassed 58M views, and the Pop/Stars music video has reached 551M views. Both videos acted as great adverts for the game, while forming its own fandom, gaining Riot Games more leads than ever before. 

To many, creating an entire K-pop group to promote something might seem far fetched. However, it is definitely worth looking into creating music videos to promote your latest game launch, at least. If the song is good/catchy, it will automatically gain traction and convert solid leads over time.

Bungie – Believe for Halo 3 

Believe is considered to be Halo 3’s most successful ad campaign, featuring a string of video advertisements with the tagline ‘Believe’, beginning September 11th 2007. 

The videos were estimated to cost around $10 million to create and were directed by Rupert Sanders, a legend in the video game advertising industry. A massive diorama spanning 1,200 square feet and 12 feet tall was used to film a single battle scene from the game, with handcrafted human and Covenant figures represented at one-twelfth scale. Halo 3 fans could pan the length of the diorama on the Believe website. 

Over 10,000 retail stores across the US held midnight launch parties for Halo’s release, along with multiple others across the globe. Within the first 24 hours of its release, the game made $170 million in US sales alone, generating the most amount of money than any other American entertainment property up to that point. By 2008, Halo had sold 8.1 million units worldwide and, to date, has sold in excess of 14.5 million copies. 

If you are to take anything from the success of Halo’s Believe campaign, it should be to spend more time on your ad ideas and try to connect them with fundamental human emotions.

Sega – Sega does what Nintendon’t 

To promote the Mega Drive in the early 1990s, Sega sought to battle Nintendo’s market leader position, attaching the slogan “Sega (or Genesis in North America) does what Nintendon’t” to a video ad that highlighted the features of its new gaming console. Take a look:

At the time, Sega knew that all school children and teenagers wanted to be part of the Genesis group, and used emotional, logical and ethical appeal to connect to this. As a result, Sega’s sales amounted to double of its competitor, Nintendo, for four holiday seasons after the ad was released. 

We understand that assigning celebrities to feature in your campaign ads is a little excessive, particularly for small companies, however, regardless of size, all companies can adopt the key aspect of Sega’s ad – highlighting your product features.

Ubisoft – My Life as an NPC for Assassin’s Creed

Ubisoft’s My Life as an NPC campaign is proof that humour is often a great way to drive results. In this social campaign, dozens of NPCs took over Ubisoft’s Facebook and Instagram accounts to share what their life looks like in the game. Here’s an example of the sort of things they produced:

Even if your games don’t have the virality that Assassin’s Creed does, you can still use this quirky, funny and offbeat approach to promote them on social media. Instagram Reels, short videos, social media takeovers etc are all a great way to popularise your game and make it relatable to new and old players alike.

Tips for creating gaming ads

Connect with users through a story

You may have noticed that most of the examples we have shared employ some kind of storytelling in one way or another. The reason for this? Players like to choose games that run a different story from their own. It allows them to escape to another world to de-stress, be entertained or join a new community of like minded players. 

Gaming marketers like to pair their compelling stories with impactful visuals. Check out Playstation’s Double Life advert:

Know your players’ motivations

As a gaming marketer, you should know exactly why people are choosing to play your game. 

For example, if you are promoting a cosy game with stand-out design elements and encourages problem solving, you are most likely looking for casual gamers with interests in design and decor. Taking it one step further, you’ll soon realise that the main motivations for puzzle gamers are thinking, relaxing, passing time and exercising cognitive skills. You should be targeting people with these interests.

Advertise in-game

The best place to market games is within already existing ones. A lot of mobile games nowadays give players the option to watch an ad for more advantages in that game. This is a great way to be seen by more relevant players, increasing your likelihood of more downloads. 

In-game ads are also great for brand awareness. While the largest franchises of games might not be available to smaller businesses, you can target various free-to-play titles instead.

Influencer Sessions: Get to Know @rahmaxali

May 17th, 2023 by

We spoke to lifestyle, travel and beauty influencer Rahma (@____rahma on Instagram, and @rahmaxali on TikTok), to discuss making a hobby a career, changes in the influencer marketing space, and balancing online and offline. 

Check out the full blog below! 

Tell us about your background and how you started to build your following. 

My background is actually in Biology, I never considered myself to be creative whatsoever. I went on a girl’s trip to Malta in my last year of uni, and vlogged to capture the moment for myself and during the editing process, I had a sudden urge to give YouTube a try. Editing really allowed me to express a creative side I never knew I had and for a long time creating content was just a hobby.

When vlogging, do you tend to plan your days around what you want your next vlog to be about, or plan your vlogs around whatever you are doing that day? 

When vlogging no two days are the same. If I know I’m doing something exciting I plan my days around the vlog, however I’m quite spontaneous and like to vlog what I’m up to day to day.

♬ original sound – Rahma Ali

Which platforms do you predominantly use? Which is your favourite? 

I enjoy each platform for its unique reasons. YouTube will always have a place in my heart as it’s where my journey as a creator began. TikTok is fast-paced and the algorithm always introduces me to new things, whilst Instagram is quite aesthetic and allows you to keep up with what your friends and family are up to on Stories.

What type of content do you create, and which type works best for your audience? 

I create a lot of vlogs. I enjoy travelling and YouTube allows me to share my experiences and connect with new people.

How would you define “influencer marketing”? 

Influencer marketing is a form of social media marketing. Creators all have different interests so they are placed between a brand/product and their audience. Usually, a creator will align with what they are sharing with their audience which is a great way to share beneficial products and services. I have often been more inclined to try products recommended by influencers if I enjoy their other content.

♬ original sound – ᴍᴏʜᴀ__ᴛʏᴘɪɴɢ🖤✨🎵


Have you worked with brands before? How do you decide which brands to work with? 

I have worked with quite a few brands, and if I enjoy the product/service that a brand is selling I decide to work with them. However, if I have no interest I would rather wait for offers that align with me and my audience.

How do you think influencer marketing will change over the next 12 months? 

Of course, influencer marketing will drastically change in the next 12 months. The space is always changing with new trends, platforms and software features, such as short-form videos becoming more prevalent in our consumption. I’m sure a new social media platform will come along and draw all of our attention soon.

How has influencer marketing changed since you began working within social media?

When I first started creating content, TikTok wasn’t around. There has also been a huge shift in brands working with micro-influencers. I believe everyone has influence and sometimes you trust what your friends recommend without needing a huge platform. Also, social norms are changing, you don’t have to look a certain way or come from a specific background, anyone can create content.

Instagram capture from Rahma Ali's account

Do you use any software to help create and edit your content? 

I use my phone a large amount of the time, it’s always in my hands and the cameras are becoming better by the day! For vlogs I use my Canon G7X Mark 2; I’ve actually been using the same camera for 3 years and it hasn’t let me down and I use iMovie to edit. I learnt how to edit from scratch with my first vlog and learn new techniques all the time through YouTube.

How do you balance your online and offline lives? 

The easiest way to balance your life on and offline is to be yourself, you won’t feel the pressure of having to present yourself in a certain way, and you don’t always have to be done-up or funny, be genuine and you’ll attract an audience that appreciates you for you.

Which influencers inspire you? 

At the moment I’m inspired by fitness creators, it’s an aspect of my life I’m working on so I take inspiration from workouts, recipes and exercise classes such as Pilates. I gave Pilates a try last week despite being fairly unathletic and it was such a good decision, sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone to get new experiences.

Where would you like to take your career as an influencer? 

It’s less about where I’d like to take my career and more about where I’d like my career to take me. I enjoy going with the flow but I’d love to spend more time travelling in 2023.

Luckily, through extensive social listening and years of trial and error, we now know which variables affect growth and engagement online and can tune into these to help you take your marketing efforts this Pride month, up a notch.

For example:

Instagram Reels hashtags search example for clothing

Competitor research

Without blatantly copying them, it is wise to look to your competitors when putting together your list of Instagram Reels hashtags. You are most likely aware of the top performing brands and creators within your industry, so take a look at their top performing Reels and make note of the hashtags used and in what way they are being used. 

Other social networks 

Taking trending hashtags from other social networks – particularly TikTok – that haven’t yet caught on over on Reels is a great way to skyrocket content to the top of the trending list.

Social listening

Making use of social listening tools is vital if you want valuable information about what your target audience wants from your brand. What’s great is that this data can be applied to hashtags too.
