If you think Koovs is not for you, you might be wrong. If you think a married woman with a kid cannot rock Koovs super stylish and trendy clothes, guessed it right - wrong. If I can wear a culottes like this, then you can too. I think I look great in it.
Now something informative that I learned today "what does #sp and #ad mean?" You must know specially if you are a blogger because your followers and readers deserve an honest disclosure. And if you are a follower or reader, it is even more important to know because your #BuyingDecisions might be influenced by the blogger you are following. Thanks me later -
#sp means - a post is sponsored and #ad means Advertisement.
Now what does this mean?
It means that a post which #sp tag in it is sponsored and the blogger/celebrity is paid for this post. But that doesn't mean their views are influenced (they might be but they will be subtle.) And if you are darned honest then you can be blunt too (addressing my fellow blogger friends here) :)
#ad means - a post is an advertisement. A post should be disclosed as this.
What's the challenge if we don't disclose it? Your account might be revoked, taken off.
What else could be? Bloggers mention this in their posts but follower might not read it.
And outcome is? Dude, brand has got a way with it. Sorry! Just kidding. Honestly, it depends on your perspective. How you take a sponsored post! Surveys say that about 48% people have lesser trust and value for a sponsored post. Rest? You know the answer. However, now a days people are aware what they are looking for, and they do follow things blindly. If they like the product or is something they are looking for, they'd buy.
I'll talk about me. I get many "shopping" related sponsored posts on IG and do I follow each one of them? Nope. Do I make an effort and check the account? Yes! 3 out of 5 times I follow that account if I like what they are selling. Sometimes, I don't follow but I do save their posts or send it to a fried or my sisters who could love or follow the account. I do this because I am also coming from that background where it matters if I have followers. It means because people like something and I have more to try and offer better.
Today's lecture has finished. Go home, check out Koovs , Haute Curry in Shopper's Stop and Amazon for these white ballies. The bag is from Forever21 and it contains my whole world in it. Trust me! You can deep dive in it and come out with something - like a chewing gum, keys, chana, mint, coins, lip balms, slips, some toys, footwear if you are lucky! water bottle, ID cards, a state of India... etc etc.
Love and Light.
