Paige Hathaway Talks About Life as a Fitness Model - Paige Hathaway Interview
I wrote to every magazine I knew about fitness modeling. In 2013, after about five months, Women's Health invited me to New York City for an open casting call. They wouldn't hire me without an agent, but when I went to a modeling agency, I was rejected. At the time, I was bummed, but used the feeling as motivation when I went back to Oklahoma, where I'd been living. I got on Model Mayhem, a site that connects photographers and models, launched my Instagram account, and started posting professional photos.

I reached out to brands like Muscle and Fitness magazine and offered to do fitness videos and magazine covers for free, but what really grew my following was Instagram's former Popular page. Whenever I was featured on it, big pages would repost my photos, until I was seen by the supplement company, Shredz. They approached me to be their spokesperson, and I worked with them for about two years, during which I gained 1 or 2 million followers. It blew up, and my career grew from there.

Look, [influencers'] lives are based on likes and comments, and that's how we define our success and whether we're liked. Posts that look good are important for Instagram growth.

How exactly do you make money?
I was making anywhere from $35,000 to $50,000 a month on commission from a supplement sponsor, Shredz, but then a little over a year ago, I began to distance myself to develop my own products. It's hard, because in the entertainment world you kind of have a shelf life, so you never want to say no to anything.

Now, I easily make seven figures every year from endorsing companies like F45 — which pays me a six-figure annual salary — and e-book sales, subscriptions to my website, and sponsored social media posts.

I prefer to work with companies on long-term contracts, like the one I have with SweetSweat, rather than one-off #ad posts, but it's crazy the amount of money brands want to pay me — I make about $6,000 per post. There was a waist-cincher brand that offered to pay me $12,000, but I don't believe in it and wouldn't use it, so I decided not to post it. I'm lucky that my business is sustainable on its own without me having to rely on advertising products for other companies.

It's crazy. I have seven employees [who] live solely off my income

Do you get you insulted when people call you an Instagram model?
I mean yeah, a little bit. I do so much more than that. Last year I was so busy the only time I could work out was at 2 or 3 a.m. I had no social life, no dating life, and got sick five or six times, so I stopped doing it in an attempt to live a more balanced life. I haven't taken a full day off in a long time, but I've taken half days to go to out at night to a concert or something

Instagram Trends: Visual Narratives of Embodied Experiences at the Museum of Islamic Art – MW18: Museums and the Web 2018
The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha, Qatar is a landmark building in the city and the country. Located on its own island, the museum seems to float in the Arabian Gulf nestled between 'old' and 'new' Doha. Designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, MIA is a popular destination for tourists and residents alike. With an Instagram following of more than 37 million users, the museum and its surrounding areas also prove to be a popular destination for photo opportunities. This paper presents the results of a 6-month study of more than 4,000 Instagram images, posted between November 2014 and November 2015, tagged to the Museum of Islamic Art's geolocation. Drawing on visual content analysis, the project reveals graphic trends in the visiting narrative, situating this experience not only within the museum's collection, but also within the social and cultural fabric of the country. The paper argues for a stronger emphasis to the role of visual media shared online, as a meaning-laden medium and embodied social practice that has the capacity to create preconceptions and expectations about museum visiting experiences. In addition, the potential of visual media is discussed as habitual products that fuel a virtuous circle of influence between individuals and communities through practices of collaboration and co-creation of information and narratives. Overall, the paper will offer an understanding of the potential of Instagram as a reflection of the cultural citizenship of the varied memory communities associated with the museum - online and offline.

Thanks for the response and I hear you.

The reality is that if you are starting a business, it’s most effective to start with a high ticket offer to quickly generate cash flow so you can actually have a business.

Once you get to that point, you can absolutely offer lower price point products. I’d recommend offering an appropriate amount of support though.

For example, maybe they can’t afford to get you on the phone twice per week, but they could afford to purchase a course and do it themselves.

There are levels.

We like to help people start where it’s profitable, quick cash flow, and highly impactful. Then, you can move to other things.

It takes time to build every facet of your businesses

Let's talk about relevancy.

Are you posting pictures of cats on your Facebook business profile?

Laugh now, but I see this literally every single day.

Coaches want to earn themselves new, high quality clients from Facebook and Instagram...

And wonder why it's not happening for them.

You can post on social media all day long, but if you're irrelevant is doesn't matter.

Potential clients ONLY care about how you can help them and IF you can help them...

They do not care about selfies of you with no caption or videos of motivational cats doing great things.

If you want your social media to become a client generation system, you need to treat it like one.

That means talking to your potential clients need, fears, and pains.

Sharing your results, how you have helped others in their situation, and relevant stories about yourself.

It's about building trust and rapport.

If you want it to a business, that means you need to put strategy and thought behind what you choose to share (and what you choose NOT to share).
