Loom Knitting Tutorial Video Host
Meet Kristen Mangus, owner and video host of Goodknit Kisses. You can read about Kristen on her website but my story below is telling you things that you don't know and why I have chosen Kristen as an Authorized Video Host of The Crochet Crowd.
I'll tell you the way it really happened.
As a self taught, social media expert that I have become, I can see obvious decisions on direction and ideas. I've gotten to know the industry and who people are. I know who to work with and who to avoid. I've had my share of failures as well but it's about how you bounce back that makes it count. Sometimes it's a guess on whether the audience will adapt or accept the ideas. Other times it's a dumb idea and the idea needs to be deleted quickly. What works for one person, doesn't work for another.
I've essentially taken Kristen under my wing and given her the advice and techniques she needed to build her own empire. Her spark is her personality, and with it she is able to reach thousands of people. Too many people try to be something they are not on camera and fail. They fear being judged or that people won't like them. I can tell you first hand, not everyone likes me and a few have no issues on firing me an email to ensure I know it. With the few bad apples out there and the thousands of people who peak in everyday, the positive out weighs the negatives.
With my guidance and Kristen's own initiative for her ideas and enthusiasm, she has managed to get over 3,000 Subscribers in the first year. If that wasn't impressive enough, she's acheived to get nearly 900,000 views on You Tube.
Her videos over time have bumped up to an undeniable quality through software upgrading and personality adaptations to teach online. She's been recognized by major companies in the United States for her effort. People want to work with her because she teaches products so well. I'm very proud of her and how far she has come in so little time.
Essentially, my protege has flown the nest and is thriving really well on her own effort. I'm 100% confident in her abilities, teaching style and have been watching how her once nervous personality has turned into a confident online video instructor. She's managed to let go most of the fear and be herself. She already inspired thousands of people.
Authorized Video Host for The Crochet Crowd
In adapting to the changes of social media and the high demand for Loom Knitting Tutorials, it seems pointless to compete with someone that I have trained. Kristen has already exceeded expectations of producing complex tutorial skills using various equipment such as Knifty Knitter, D.A. Looms, Martha Stewart Looms and new looms scheduling to come out in the future. She is doing circles around me as I try to keep the momentum of The Crochet Crowd going.
"As a tutorial host, our mission is to educate you on how to use the products in a fun and educational way. We are not the spokespersons for these products. We are enthusiastic people with an idea to help people use products."
I will be setting up Kristen here for the videos she offers. Kristen will remain under her own branding as Kristen from GoodKnit Kisses. The rules she has for her own videos are her own. Her videos will be linked through this website so you can navigate your way through tutorials.
For the first time in my history, it is my honour to recognize Kristen Mangus as an Authorized Host for Loom Knitting Tutorials as a social media partner of The Crochet Crowd®.
P.S. Due to my tight scheduling at the moment, I'm not accepting new protege's at this time.
