As a new Strange Bikinis ambassador, we're excited to work with you and to grow together!
Here are our best tips to help you on your way as a Strange ambassador! Of course, the best way to be an influencer is through word of mouth. If you love what we have going on a Strange, let your friends know and encourage them to become ambassadors too!
P.S. We also recommend you bookmark this page as a reference going forward.
Here are a few of the Instagram basics!
1. Please always tag us on anything you post regarding Strange Bikinis.
2. Talk about the steps we're taking together to become more sustainable like our biodegradable fabrics and Plastic Free Fridays.
3. Any event we have, we would like you to post about (local or not).
4. Keep everything inclusive! For example. please don't use the cursive font on your Instagram stories - it can be so hard to read.
The first Strange Bikinis shipment you receive in the mail should be one to celebrate!
Within five days of receiving your package, you must showcase your new Strange items on your Instagram story.
During this first story, you must mention the soft fabric , designs, and the fit of the ‘kini(s). We would like at least one of these words mentioned.
Show the package in a fun way and talk about how excited you are to open it.
Show off all of your new Strange Bikinis in a beautiful way! You do not have to show yourself physically opening the package, rather, after it is open lay out all of the merchandise in a pretty way and take an Instagram story of it. You can talk about the products in one of two ways: speaking or text.
Speaking: You can do a video of your new stuff and talk about the fun new company you have partnered with! Detail how you will be working with us and what we are all about!
Text: If you do not want to talk, you can take a video and write all the details down! (Please don't use the cursive font!)
During this story you should mention the soft fabric, designs, and the fit of the kini.
Flatlays are one of the most important parts of being an Ambassador and here are our best tips!
When taking a flatlay:
-Make sure the strings of the bikini are strategically places and bows are tied
-Use props from around your house (succulents, sunglasses, sandals, etc.)
-Don't make the photo too cluttered! No props is better than too many.
-Straight above photos and ones taken down on the knees work best!
When posting a photo of our bikinis, make sure to tag us @strangebikinis! We like to use #girlgetoutside #livestrangerously #offthegrid #biodegradablefabric or anything that captures the mood of the photo. We wouldn't recommend using #strangebikinis or anything that could be risque.
Unfortunately, our #strangebikinis has been "shadow banned" by Instagram which prevents account growth. This happens when someone flags the content as inappropriate or the account has been flagged. We're not sure why this is happening but we want to make you aware so you can avoid using unsafe hashtags that could lead to you being shadow banned!
