Kelvin Wiedenhoff talks about his life as an Instagram model.


Kelvin Wiedenhoff is a lifestyle influencer from London, United Kingdom. Wiedenhoff has a hectic life traveling the world as a lifestyle blogger. His Instagram started to blow up around the time he starred on Dutch Tv Reality programme ‘The Sky Is The Limit.

When did you start your Instagram page?
I started it back in 2015 I think! It was just something I liked to post photos on and connect with people through as I didn’t use Facebook, so Instagram became my go-to.

How did you get into blogging?
I first started blogging when I was 16 through a website called ‘Tumblr’ which was my escape from my surroundings. I used to just post and repost photos there consistently and I loved it!

What is the most rewarding part of blogging?
I think the connections you make with people, I love seeing people supporting others – it’s so cool to be able to connect with people globally and for everyone to be able to express themselves in the way that they want to.

Do you consider yourself an entrepreneur?
Yes, I run multiple E-commerce businesses and made my money by investing in start-ups and cryptocurrency.
 


Do you do more brand collaborations on your Instagram Feed or Instagram Stories?
It really depends on the criteria, it’s also dependent on the brief or requirements of the collaboration I guess – I only post about and work with brands that I actually support and believe in.

A lot of people hate influencers. What kind of feedback do you get from the industry?
I think it’s hard, I mean when is someone classified as an ‘influencer’? Is it when a person posts a photo they like and as a result gain a slight (or decent) following? I’m not sure. I can think of what my idea of an influencer is, and personally I don’t think of myself as one. But I have had people ask. I think for the people that know me and love me I have had nothing but honest feedback and support from.
