Reaching over 22 thousand Instagram followers is no easy task but local social media aficionado, Rachel Brown has managed just that and at a remarkably young age.
Rachel grew up in Charlotte and is a proud native. She studied Public Relations at UNCC where she began her blog “Queen City Chic”. On her blog and popular Instagram account, you can find local food, fashion, and everything Queen City. Rachel is a contributor to several local publications and a brand ambassador.
Social Media has become an integral part of building a brand that consumers trust. Rachel has managed to build a very large and loyal following that has been valuable to many local businesses. When Rachel isn’t running her social media empire she takes her doodle on greenway walks, visits breweries, and local coffeehouses. She’s also cultivating her cooking skills!
I was thrilled when Rachel agreed to join me during Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour, Monday, June 13th on Charlotte Community Radio. I am fascinated by the ever-changing world of social media and even more impressed by those who have managed to not only master the platform but stand out as an influencer, and “power user” — I learned that phrase just the other day.
When Rachel comes into the studio I am excited to get into all her local favorites and really interested to hear about her journey to 22K followers and what’s next.
Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour, hosted by Amelia Coughlin, airs every other Monday from 7:00pm to 8:00pm via CharlotteCommunity Radio.org, CLTCRadio.org or Mixlr.com/CLTCRadio where you can chat with our hosts.
