How Chelsea Kauai Expanded From Her Small Adventure Feed To One Of The Most Popular Instagram Travel Accounts

Chelsea Yamase, best known on Instagram as Chelsea Kauai, didn't set out to be a travel blogger sensation. As Instagram was taking off, Chelsea started as most amateurs did—creating an unscripted, highly filtered, and minimally followed feed snapshotting her food. But with a little bit of luck, grit, and a solid network, Chelsea Kauai's once little-known feed has scratched its way to the surface of more than half a million Instagram users' screens. Her followers are entranced by Chelsea's world of adventure curated with an expert's eye for design, mind for creativity, and heart for authenticity.

In an attempt to quench her own thirst for adventure and her followers' desire for artsy, travel-filled depictions and lifestyle inspiration, Chelsea has built an empire that champions all that's natural in life. Partnering with brands like Canon, KEEN, and an assortment of National Parks services, she sets out to lead a more purposeful and less stagnant life by documenting her purest intentions.

We caught up with Chelsea to find out more about her journey behind her popular travel account and to see what's in store for 2019 in an exclusive interview.

Cannabis Marketing In The Age Of Social Media Influencers

Legality of Marijuana In America

Cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in recent years, due to widespread expansion of medical marijuana and even full legalization of weed at the state level in the U.S. Use of recreational marijuana has become increasingly mainstream, a trend led by states that have chosen to legalize. Canada officially legalized marijuana this month, further expanding the Western weed economy.

Marijuana is still illegal under U.S. federal law, which classifies cannabis as a Schedule I substance. Federal regulations around illicit psychoactive substances make advertising a challenge.

Instagram Marketing Case Study: Over 100 Influencers Join Johnnie Walker In The Stride Towards Gender Equality

Influencer marketing on Instagram alone is set to surpass $2. 3 billion dollars by 2019. Large and small brands alike are continually developing strategies to draw customers in through influencer marketing efforts. Diageo brand, Johnnie Walker, has been using more than 1,000 social media influencers in global influencer marketing campaigns since 2016 to help tell the brand’s story and demonstrate brand promise through activism and progressive marketing.

The progressive brand’s ongoing “Keep Walking America” campaign pushes celebration for cultural progression and diversity, while recently spotlighting women’s equality with the limited launch of the Jane Walker label. According to Nielsen Spectra, 29% of scotch buyers are women, and women account for 24% of scotch sales. Although Johnnie Walker marketing approached gendered packaging with the knowledge of potentially sparking controversy, the 50% female-represented company has persisted in its campaign efforts against gender inequality by partnering with more than 100 female micro-influencers on Instagram.

Silicon Beach Spotlight: The Honest Company Stands Out With Influencer Marketing

Most people know of the technological prowess of Silicon Valley. The area has long been known as the birthplace of many prominent startup companies, Apple, Google, and Facebook included. Silicon Valley is no longer the only significant California startup hub. Now, an area of LA county coastline has become fondly known as Silicon Beach. From Santa Monica to Culver City, this section of Los Angeles has become a prime location for startups, influencers, and influencer companies alike. Silicon Beach is home to notable companies like Snapchat, Youtube’s Space LA, and Maker Studios. Collectively, Mediakix estimates that Silicon Beach startups are worth over $155 billion in valuation.

Unlike Silicon Valley, Silicon Beach attracts a more diverse range of companies. Among these, the most popular niches are fashion, fitness, entertainment, and media. With businesses of this style and caliber, and an idealistic location like Los Angeles, influencer marketing is a natural pairing. The city and beaches attract both rising and established influencer talent, providing influencer marketing companies and brands with convenient connection to popular social media influencers.

An abundance of brands has already elected to begin influencer marketing campaigns. Among these is The Honest Company. Founded in 2011, The Honest Company produces eco-friendly baby, self-care, home, and health products. Influencer marketing through brand ambassadors has served the company well.

The mission of the Honest Company, as told by founder Jessica Alba, is to empower families to lead happy, healthy lives. The focus of their products is to provide organic, environmentally safe solutions for women and their babies. They also wanted to fit the needs of Millennial moms by offering natural products they knew they could trust. To sell that brand image effectively, the Honest Company needed to generate a real connection with their customers. In addition to ultra-responsive social media posts, influencer marketing was one essential tool they used to achieve a strong customer connection.

Instagram Marketing Case Study: Nonprofit Taps Travel Influencers To Promote California Tourism

With U.S. travel revenue up in 2017 and more growth predicted this year, travel influencers are expanding alongside the industry on social platforms. Hospitality and other travel-oriented companies have used influencers on social media to help raise awareness around their brands and entice people to explore destinations and use their services.

According to data compiled by MDG Advertising, more than 90% of Millennials post their travels on social platforms, and 30% of travelers in the U.S. use social media for inspiration. UK-based Schofield’s survey from last year found that “Instagrammabilty” was an important factor for 40% of 18-33 year-olds when choosing a vacation. Despite numbers like these, travel brands with a social presence or influencer marketing campaign aren’t guaranteed success online. Some travel brands have started to rethink their influencer strategies as they assess effectiveness and navigate evolving regulations.
