13 Black Content Creators in Phoenix, Arizona

Content creators or Social Media Influencers are typically people, who provide personal insight on products and services to an audience via content created for their social media platform. We would like to spotlight 13 local influencers, who create consistent content, you might enjoy.

@thestylegypsy

The Style Gypsy is an Instagram blog started by Tucson, Arizona native, Aiesha Beasley, in 2017. It began as a creative outlet for Aiesha to share some of her favorite pictures. On The Style Gypsy you can expect fashionably chic images with a sort of vintage feel to them. Aiesha creates content on Tik Tok as well, she actually found tremendous growth in her following and engagement from the app in comparison into Instagram. She shares the most unique finds in Arizona and she displays them in such a creative way… every new mini adventure really peaks the curiosity. Our favorite segment on The Style Gypsy would have to be “Tip Tuesday”, every Tuesday Aiesha provides a new detailed tip for those, who want to monetize their social media platform.

Currently: Aiesha is juggling a full time job, creating content, and finishing her website for launch.

LongTerm: Aiesha would like to be a full time content creator.

@Pod_son

Pod Son is local podcast host and Pod Son Radio is the name of his podcast show, you can find it on YouTube. From our observation, Pod Son interviews consist, mainly, of guests from the local entertainment industry. We noticed somewhat of a pattern to his interviews. He dives into the background of his guests. He also asks them questions about currently trending topics. At some point he provides the guest an opportunity to discuss their current and future projects. Pod Son even has his own catch phrase he says throughout the show. He says, “Shine Moment” to highlight a guest’s accomplishments. He prides himself on having had the chance to interview guests such as Master P, Deebo, Rick Ross and more.

@miss_opportunity93

Miss Opportunity, also know as Dejenaie Williams, describes herself as a marketing director, model, and public host. If anyone asked, we would also add entrepreneur to the list. Dejenaie certainly lives up to her name as Miss Opportunity, this young black woman is truly working every opportunity she’s presented even in 2020. We first noticed Miss Opportunity as a host of her YouTube show Opportunity Live and from the launch of her local print magazine, Rep Ya City Mag. She is very active on her social media platforms. She’s definitely not camera shy and she’ll be one to watch 2021.

@lauren.lux

Lauren Lux is founder of @phx.girlboss, a community for collaboration and events amongst girl bosses throughout the valley. We absolutely love what Lauren is doing with Phx Girl Boss. From the looks of it, the women seem to really enjoy and benefit a lot from attending her events. Lauren also has a YouTube channel, she’s expressed a love for home decor. I think it’s safe to say that we can expect more home decor type content in her future, since she just moved into a new home.

Charles Davis has a Couples YouTube Channel with his girlfriend Alyssa. Charles has been on YouTube for awhile.

It has been a long road for Charles on YouTube, we’re happy to see him winning. The couple has over 1 million subscribers. All this… just from sharing a piece of their growing relationship with the world. Charles and Alyssa create prank videos, they do trendy challenges, and they sometimes test cultural boundaries.
