In today’s episode, we’re back on the topic of TikTok with Chelsea Barstow of Willow Bee Goods. Chelsea’s advice helped me create a viral TikTok video that’s reached almost 1 million views so I’m excited to share her expertise with you here today. We talked about a content strategy to get started with a new account, how to create fun videos even if you’re a total introvert and what hashtags to use on your TikTok videos. We also talk about how you can use affiliate links to monetize your video content.
I’d love to see you put some of the ideas in this episode into use! You can find me on TikTok @wearwagrepeat. Tag me, duet me or stitch one of my videos so we can support each other on that platform, too. I’ll keep an eye out for you over there!
Chelsea Barstow is the creator of Willow Bee Goods and a social media manager for women in the pet industry. Chelsea started her career with animals working as a zookeeper for 7 years during which she fell in love with animal enrichment!
After she adopted her dog, Levi, in early 2020, Chelseas launched the Willow Bee Goods website, which sells dog and dog mom accessories. Her main mission is to help you have the best possible relationship with your dog, while looking your best!
Chelsea also creates popular TikTok videos to help educate other pet parents on the amazing activities you can do with your dog. She enjoys building a community in the pet industry so much that, that recently, she started working as a social media manager for other women in the pet industry!
