Check out our interview with Lifestyle & Beauty Digital Creator, Author & Women Empowerment Advocate Hikari Fleurr who just released her latest e-book, titled, “How To Be A Successful Influencer: Post Pandemic”.
Hikari has managed to stand out amongst her peers with her artistic eye, philanthropic spirit, originality, and passion for creating authentic, creative and viral digital content.
After the great success of her first book which launched last year, Hikari is now pulling the curtain back on the present-day world of “influencing”, discussing how the industry has shifted over the past year and giving expert tips on how creators need to “pivot” to stay relevant, as simply adapting to this new normal is not enough.
Social media has become critical to marketing and with over 50% of global companies continuing to work remotely, now is the best time to be creative, evolve, and take advantage of these shifts for one’s business.
