MAKE CONTENT THAT YOU LOVE – #STARTCREATINGPODCAST EP 004

Long term growth on any social media platform is hard and will take a long time to seed a foundation. This tends to be the reason many creators burn out and give up on their goals. If you are creating content just to hit a demographic or to chase trends then it can get soulless, it can get hard and it can become a chore rather than a passion. HOWEVER, you can avoid this pitfall from day one if you make your channel, your social media content or your foundation about something that you love.

Have you ever been around a Star Wars fan that loves it soooooo much that they just wont shut up about it? Imagine how much content they can make talking about their favourite franchise without feeling it’s a chore. Use that passion as the fuel that fires your brand and pushes you to make content for weeks, months, and even years into the future.

GROW ON MULTIPLE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS – #STARTCREATINGPODCAST EP 002

GROW ON MULTIPLE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS – #STARTCREATINGPODCAST EP 002 // Social media is the beast that runs our life these days. If you have a business, if you want suggestions of a good restaurant, keep up to date with friends, share your good or bad news… then you are likely to do it on a social media platform to maximize the impact is has. Maybe you are like me and you’ve got to that age where all of your friends are getting married, having babies or sharing 8million holiday photos – so you’ll now understand the reach of social networks and social media.

How does this affect you, your brand to expand your business on grow on YouTube? – GOOD QUESTION!
Social media platforms all have their own USP (unique selling point) or feature. Maybe you are great at building a community in a facebook group, promoting yourself on your Facebook page, sharing a stunning image on Instagram, entertaining people with stories or educating people on YouTube. They all have something you need to be using to grow your social media reach.
As of right now (May 2019) I have 6000 subscribers on YouTube and a very engaged active audience that likes to comment, reply and share my videos. If I can amplify their excitement and drive onto Twitter, Instagram and Facebook I can use that to get their friends, family, employees and bosses to see my content and subscribe themselves…. or better still, reach out and work with me as a client.
Ok great… I’ve amplified that passion and I grow to 50,000 subscribers or even 100,000 but only ever make content and interact on YouTube? What happens if that social media platform dies or that account gets blocked or hacked? How will you reach that audience now?
Weird analogy moment – If you ONLY play in one playing field and the next morning its ripped up and houses are built on it…. you’ll have lost it all in the blink of an eye. But if you play in EVERY football pitch, sand box, and bouncy castle…. you’ll always have new friends to play with.
