When it comes to putting your voice out there on social media, there are so many platforms to choose from.
Everything from concise 140 characters tweets to an hour long video on Youtube. Depending on what you want to say and the audience you want to appeal to; this may affect what platform you decide to use, although many use a combination.
Although I have been blogging for a few years now and have been active on Twitter, there is one social media platform that I have both eyed from a distance and toyed with from time to time. Video. It both intrigues and scares me at the same time.
Whilst your words on a page have an impact and can engage a reader, there is nothing like speaking directly to your audience through a video format. This is the perfect platform for people who speak about beauty products as you can see in front of you how the product looks and how it was applied.
Video is also a great format for anyone who likes to do opinion pieces or has a specific subject that they wish to talk about regularly. It can be a great insight into someone's life and teach you things that you did not know before.
I particularly love Pamper & Curves Youtube channel featuring the fabulous Betty who talks about family life and her journey into all things vegan, including cruelty free makeup.
Toast TV have created a handy infographic which they have allowed me to share here today. There are some fantastic tips such as what to do in the first few seconds of your video, the part where the viewer quickly makes up their mind as to whether they wish to continue viewing.
