Coronavirus Disrupts Travel Influencer’s Image-Good Enterprise Mannequin

Traveling blogger Christine Ka’aloa posted a series of videos in recent weeks on her YouTube video, which ran out of food.

Instead of seeing him take the Arctic Road or show him how to use a portable toilet, his 151,000 subscribers went down on what seems to be the world’s largest shut-off time.

“All the movies I worked on tirelessly last year and this year I’m going to stop because of the coronavirus,” he said in about 18 minutes recorded on Sunday. He is seen almost 2,500 times – less than his “GRRRL Traveler” recordings from travel around the world.

As the new coronavirus changes the way we work, the Wall Street Journal looks at how different and vulnerable people are. Past posts:

Ms. Ka’aloa, who lives in Hawaii, recorded daily incidents such as taking her dog, Tinker, to a veterinarian. He told viewers to watch the platform Patreon Inc., which allows people to sell subscriptions each month in exchange for better or better.

“I’m not feeling well,” Ka’aloa said, explaining why he had been silent since early March. “People out there watch my videos and think I’m on a trip.”

Ms. Ka’aloa has been aware of the restrictions on travel during the epidemic, and she encourages people to stay home. He decided to post new videos soon, however, “so I can get over this.”

He began his most recent film showcasing the self-defense he had accumulated over the years while traveling to India and Japan, and living in South Korea.

Stability has reached the head of Mrs. Ka’aloa.

Patreon, who set out to work with other followers before the epidemic, has played an important role in Ms. Ka’aloa. They collect between $ 5 and $ 100 per month for Patreon membership.

Subscribers look inside the created content, “back problems for photos” and the opportunity to see the back of the video waiting to be released. For example, after Covid-19 cases in Italy erupted, they banned shipping of their bullets from other Italian cities where they had recently visited.

About 40 Patreon subscribers to Ms. Ka’aloa does not have enough money to raise funds for the Covid-19 areas before. “On a grand scale, it’s not much,” Ka’aloa said.

The business model of GRRRL Traveler, which started in 2008, relies on advertising. About 60% of its 2019 revenue was based on ads seen on its YouTube and Facebook pages, he said.

In 2018, a YouTube video he made about a luxury hotel in Tokyo was interrupted, with over two million views. Facebook Inc. it also asked him to try out a video marketing program, and brands known as SanDisk memory card manufacturers approached him to showcase his videos.

Last year, the support and trials of GRRRL Traveler grew exponentially for Ms Ka’aloa to make her debut. It takes about 60 hours a week. He hits the road five times a year to collect notes and directions for travel, accommodation, food and other travel purposes alone.

Outside the Patreon, Mrs. Ka’aloa created three “GRRRL’S Nite” Zoom meetings that she promoted through their media channels. The conference focused on nutritious food from around the world, travel to Japan and private trips.

“It makes me doubt what I’ve done or what I’ve been working on all these years to be present based on the number of people, my audience and my past business,” Ka’aloa said.
