Ex: Tell us about a change you’ve seen in the digital blogging space since you started out your journey? How has this space evolved?
Ahsaas: In my opinion, this industry is growing and evolving every day, but a very evident change that I’ve seen over time is that the audience has become smarter and more aware about what’s going on which makes the bloggers even more mindful and informed about what their content is.
Ex: Can you give us an insight into social media platforms that only an Influencer can know?
Ahsaas: I think we get a chance to directly understand what our audience likes and what content works. We can modify our content according to our audience and TG.
Ex: What would be your calling in a parallel universe? (Alternate career options)
Ahsaas: Filmmaking and direction is something that has always caught my interest, so not just in a parallel universe, I would like to explore myself as a director later in future as I study about it even more and think I’m ready.
Ex: A technology you wished you’d invented?
Ahsaas: Honestly, there are a few on my list but at the moment I think that’s very crucial and could be of a lot of use is a device that tells you or a device you can see through and detect Corona virus germs. It’ll be easier for people to prevent themselves from getting infected. I’m just being too ambitious.
Ex: What’s been your favorite encounter with a fan so far? (DMs included!)
Ahsaas: So I have a whole album in my phone gallery that has screenshots of fan dms, whenever I’m low or feeling not very confident about myself. I read them, and it keeps me going. But there was this one time when two girls came all the way from Pune to a Mumbai college where they came to know I’m coming as a chief guest. They got me gifts and literally freaked out when they saw me. I tried to spend as much time as I could. It was amazing.
Ex: Social Media is known to expose vulnerabilities, with influencers being at the epicenter. How do you deal with the dark side that comes with the medium?
Ahsaas: I would lie if I said it’s not that difficult or I handle it well, I’m a person in general who’s always vulnerable and sensitive and when I see hate, judgments, harsh opinions etc. I get very low. But talking to a friend and always seeing the bright side and the greater love you get always helps. I guess it just makes me stronger and more aware of my mistakes if I make any.
Ex: What does success mean to you?
Ahsaas: Making my mother proud.
Ex: With the growing number of bloggers and Influencers today, how does your content stand out? Any tips for beginners in this field?
Ahsaas: The only thing I try to do and keep in mind is to be myself, even if there’s a promotion involved I always make it about me and try to be as relatable as possible.
Ex: What’s the hardest part about being in this space?
Ahsaas: The most difficult and crucial part about this space is being consistent and relevant.
