“However, cliche it may sound, travel is something that I’ve fallen in love with over and over again, and from my first trip to traveling to hundreds of places where I quickly learned how adrenaline-filled, empowering, and liberating the feeling of travel can be. Everything I knew about life was very curated and structured, so the idea that I could go places, form my own opinions, seek new friendships, cultivate inspiring relationships, and allow these moments to shape the better part of me was mind-blowing. As you grow, you find new ways to challenge yourself, better yourself, and ultimately find complete gratitude for the lifestyle you’ve created that allows this feeling to be your everyday reality,” says Büşra Duran Gündüz, a Turkish Fashion, Travel & Lifestyle Influencer, Content Creator and Social Media Influencer based in Dubai.
One of the most-followed fashion bloggers with an audience like family, further says, “It was a process that was not at all planned. I started posting private pictures on social media channels, and over time I became interested and started enjoying this journey. The first inquiries followed, which were often connected to fashion and travel. Through these means, I have met many people from all over the world and so the whole thing has become increasingly international.” Büşra has made a name for herself, not only in Dubai but around the world, with her Instagram page @hell0busra!

Being an influencer is a cool job but there is a lot of hard work that goes into it. Büşra conveyed her views on the same. “I have several people telling me that this is so cool and that this profession is all about gifts and free things. But this is something much more than just that. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into it – approaching brands, making sure people out there know that you exist, being consistent, producing quality content, planning your shoots, managing your social media and the list just goes on.”
“There is this big wave of influencers right now, and I won’t lie, it takes serious efforts to stand out. The key is consistency. If you’re not consistent, you will fade out. Secondly, ask yourself if you are passionate about fashion and the potential of life as an influencer? If the answer is a big fat YES, then you’re heading in the right direction towards success only if you make sure that you stay relevant and stay true to why you started blogging, which is to make people aware of international trends and make it easier to incorporate the same in their lives”, Büşra sharing the best tips to stand out of the crowd if you want to successfully influence people worldwide.
