Thing 1 sent a message in our girls group chat
“So there are 2 pages on Instagram that want Baby K to be a brand ambassador. Is that a legit thing or a scam?”
We talked about it a bit, landing on legit as opposed to scam.
She checked with a friend who does a great deal of baby and children’s brand repping. She’s become quite the social media influencer, and told Thing 1 pretty much what we’d discussed. They’d want Baby K and Thing 1 to use/play with/wear products and share. Some will give her things, some will sell her things at a discount, in return they’d want pics of Baby K wearing or playing with their items. They’d want her to engage their posts, share sales and new releases, things like that.
We talked about how it would be fun to meet new people and experience new items and companies.
Husband N is supportive, excited even.
Thing 1 is “weirdly nervous”.
That makes sense to me, even though it sounds fun, it’ll be more social media work than she’s used to doing.
But what an opportunity!
She’ll have access to new and interesting baby and kid things.
She’s smart and savvy enough to provide honest and positive reviews.
Baby K is just cute enough to be a great rep for clothes and toys.
It’s very exciting!
As a stay at home mom, Thing 1 has the time, and if she’s willing to work hard, this could be a wonderful opportunity for her, and Baby K!
