JOURNEY TO BECOMING AN INFLUENCER
Formerly known as Cosmetically Challenged, Being Melody started as a beauty-focused blog edited and owned by Melody Robinson Wright. A PhD student and mother, Melody’s life is as multi-faceted, and soon her blog came to reflect her varied interests. Now, Being Melody is a Lifestyle blog and Wright’s creative outlet, allowing her “the freedom to color outside the box as well as be fun-loving and fancy-free.”
Wright discovered Linqia when she noticed several other blogger friends sharing content containing an unusual and intriguing “Ooh.li” link, Linqia’s private link-shortener. Wright only wanted to participate in sponsored programs that fit her brand, and she only wanted to promote brands that she truly supported or used. After asking Linqia influencers about their experiences and learning that all Linqia programs are opt-in, Wright decided to give Linqia a try and applied to become and Influencer.
