What does authentic communication with your subscribers mean to you? It means a lot. We love responding to comments after every video. They give us the push and motivation to keep going! It’s honestly one of the best parts of creating content.
Have you ever struggled to stay authentic on a particular topic, or with a particular promotional or vlogging partner? Not really. In the beginning, we may have seemed a little unsure about what we were talking about because we were still getting used to this talking in front of a camera thing. However,we always give our honest opinions on a product in our main videos and our vlogs.
How and why did you decide to start your channel? We are creative people,and we wanted to make content in which we had full control. We are also aspiring commercial actresses; so creating content helped us feel more comfortable in front of a camera. Also, many people were asking us questions about our hair, hair products, routines,etc., and we decided to create videos on those topics to give people a visual of how we care for our hair.
What is the most difficult challenge you’ve faced as you’ve grown your audience? We think growing our audience is a challenge itself. We are still learning, and there are a few tips and tricks along the way that have helped us tremendously. Focusing on the quality of our content instead of numbers really helped us in that area as well.
What inspires you? We get inspiration from other successful YouTubers and successful young women in general. Seeing people who started from the bottom and are now reaping what they sowed just really make us want to work 10 x’s harder!
What are your favorite topics to vlog about? Hair, Fashion, and Lifestyle topics are our favorite.
What causes do you care most about, and how are you involved in them? This is something we want to get more into. We volunteered at the Salvation Army for the first time last Thanksgiving and we just loved the positive energy from those involved and from those who had less than us. We love babies so we’ll be looking into volunteering as baby cuddlers for babies in NICU who need nurturing. We definitely want to do more volunteering; so that is something we are still working on.
Do you have any pets? We love pets at MagicLinks! Unfortunately, we don’t have any pets, but if we did it would probably be hamsters. We had hamsters as kids and we loved them!
What is your favorite MagicLinks feature? Definitely the Link Wand. It cuts out a lot of steps when it comes to linking products and saves us time.
What is one of the best comments you’ve ever received on one of your videos? The best type of comments are the ones that commend our editing skills. Editing is so important in content creation. We spend a lot of time on it and the fact that it doesn’t go unnoticed by our viewers makes us feel really good.
What is your favorite place to shop? A lot of places! Forever21, H&M, Qrew, local boutiques, and the list could go on! We’ve recently been browsing Etsy for t-shirts and sweatshirts. They have a unique selection of items and we like supporting small businesses.
