I have less than five hundred followers and have been gifted things a couple of times from a big company and a small business that I’d been a good customer of and shared a few decent pictures of using their hashtags and tagging them on insta. One was even a pre-release item.I know and sadly we’ll never know the answer so all of this is just mithering but I just can’t see that as being true for her? Like the days of brands gifting enough shit out to see what sticks and praying for any ROI are long gone, she’s not aspirational/doesn’t create any content for Insta or TikTok/doesn’t have that large a following and no1 wants her crusty demog/I know this sounds horrible but really doesn’t have the look or interiors to even warrant gifting in exchange for just creative for them to use??
Like I honestly think she buys all this tat herself and pretends like it’s brand or friend gifted which is really sad. I’m not saying I’m right just I can’t personally see any other situation than her being a big spender and her dad finally sorting her finances out after she owed HMRC ££££££.
