National Dog Biscuit Day

(The following is a rough transcript of the below video)

Now then, how the devil are you? Well, excellent. Me too. Thank you very much for asking. Welcome to this Sunday video. Thank you for consuming this. And so if you didn’t already know, today is national dog biscuit. Why is there a day for national thought biscuits? I’ve no idea. But obviously it is a day to spend time with friends, family, whether your friends and family are human or are fairly little friends and you’re gonna give them loads of dog biscuits as treats today because it isn’t national dog biscuit day. Uh, but that said, even though you’re going to be spending time with friends, family, fairy friends, all that kind of stuff, just don’t forget the audience behind the lens as well. Verse people who consume your content on a daily basis and those who can’t consume your content on a daily basis. Because let’s remember, social media doesn’t work a five day week it is on seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, a platform, and if you’re not using it on all of those days as a chance, you’re potentially missing out and talking to a new customer because especially on a weekend, not everybody can use social media on a week date. Sometimes the bosses won’t let them do it. That’s why we suggest that people actually when they create video content, have subtitles so that when the boss is in the office and you still want to watch the video content, you can, you don’t have to listen to it. You can actually watch it with subtitles and read what the person says exactly. So don’t forget on a weekend there is a potential of new people consuming content because everybody can be online during the week. So those new people are going to pop onto social media and consume content in this area of expertise that you’re in because are looking for that help and your competitors are putting stuff out on a Saturday and Sunday and you’re not.

So what’s going to happen? You competitors are going to get them as raving fans and as potential new customers and you’re not. However, that’s easily remedied. Start posting on a weekend. I’m not saying you have to create loads and loads of content for a weekend by I am saying you need to spend a little bit of time to saying hello, having a chat with them. Maybe even just make weekends about having fun and not necessarily consuming loads and loads of value-driven content and those statistics, but you could make it about taking part of the poll or maybe having a quiz about the content you’ve been posting for the week and see if people can answer the questions on it. It gives them a chance as well to go back and consume that content and maybe get the questions right. All that kind of stuff. Anyway, hopefully, you’ve got some value from this. The value is that, don’t forget there was a brand new audience on a weekend consuming content, so make sure you’re making content for them to consume. In the meantime, go off, have some fun with your fairy friends and give them a biscuit from me on national bumpy skin day and until tomorrow, have a good un’ bye.

National Tortilla Day

(The following is a rough draft of the below video)

Now. Then how the devil are you? Well, excellent. Me too. Thank you very much for asking. Today is national national even easy for me to say tortilla chip day a day for eating salty chips. So let’s have a look at how that might even potentially tie into social media. I have no idea right now

the social media podcast with Simon Scholes tips, hints and great content ideas. Then

this is going to be a really, really, really, really distant cousin to bachelor tortilla chip date. But anyway, hopefully you’re well I’m Simon scales, founder and creative director of perception studios, the award winning visual marketing agency based in the UK. How brands and businesses make content that helps them stand out on their social media. And as always, I’m here to help you with your social media, trying to give you ideas of things that you can do for free yourself and today being national tortilla chip day. And I thought, well the obvious one here is toppings. I did stay with me here, stick with me and I’m going to take you through what you could be doing with your content from one single piece of content. So when you have your tortilla chip, your single piece of content, then you add lots and lots of things on top to make it even more appealing.

And so you could do that kind of thing with your social media. I know, stick with me, stick with me. Don’t go anywhere. Um, basically what I’m saying is once you’ve made one piece of content, make that piece of content work harder for your bipolarity with lots of other pieces of content made from that one piece of content. One of the things that most people struggle with that commit to social media and how to create content for each of the different channels is tied to make that content. So if you can make one piece of content work harder for you, then you’re onto a bevel winner. This is why I came up with how to nighttime, just social media in the first place because so many people were struggling to make content. So how about making it easier for them, giving them an opportunity to do something that they all can do.

And then creating content from that. So whether you’re a writer, you could blog whether you are photography, you could take pictures, whether you are somebody who feels to have a good voice, you could do a podcast or whether you feel your ground camera, you could do a video, but all those things can be the bass pedal, the base point for making more content from them. So if you make an any of those things, then you could think about actually what could you do with that content that you could make other stuff from. So if you do a blog, if you’re brilliant at writing, then you could use apps like lumen five who will artificially, intelligently look at the content from the blog and make a video from it with foil two free photos or relative free videos. Or you could use other apps. I did the same kind of thing.

Or you could maybe if you have the photography, you’ve got your photos, you could take your photos and make a video out of those giving hints or tips away of how you got first particular photos and maybe going to biting correct and all that kind of stuff. And if you do have a great voice, do you do a podcast? You could turn that podcast into a video and then that video into short-form content and then you could actually get it transcribed intended to blog. This is something I did recently, rather than actually writing blogs, I’ve been game the podcasts or the videos that I do on a daily basis actually transcribed by rev.com and they have a brand new service where they do a roof that day. So it’s not perfect for 50 cents for about five minutes worth of audio, which is brilliant. It’s like 10 cents a minute, which is just right.

So then you’ve got a blog as well, so there are lots of different things you can do, but what you’re basically saying is layer upon layer upon layer upon last. So if you’re good at making one particular thing that you use, have a particular thing and create other content with it, there is no point in just doing one thing and just posting it one place. Absolutely. Put your effort into one particular social media channel where your audience says book, don’t forget the other social media channels. So 90 80 90% of your effort into that one particular channel that your audience says, but don’t forget, 10% is still leftover for you to still talk to your audience, other channels, other potential channels, because there’s a chance somebody else may say on Twitter, a few channels like tape or on Facebook or on Instagram or Snapchat or on YouTube.

So think about your content and what you could do to actually repurpose your content, make it work harder for you so that you have more content to work with every single day. Well, every single day. Hopefully you got some value from this. It’s a little bit in and though it’s a little bit of a confusing one, but basically just make your content work harder for you. Just actually start doing more with it than just if you need a photograph, just posting it in one place. If it is a podcast just sticking out as a podcast, people want to consume content in other ways. They don’t want the friction of having to go to a channel that they wouldn’t normally use, so you’re best off speaking to them where they potentially are going to be. Okay. Thanks ever so much for listening. As always, if you’re brand new, please do leave, maybe a rating or a comment or something along those lines. That would be amazing and if you are not subscribed, make sure you hit subscribe and if you are subscribed, make sure you let other people know about the container and the videos and stuff like that. I do on a daily basis to help get funny and makes sure people are able to work on both social media and understand what they can do themselves for free. Until next time, thank you very much for watching and that. Yeah, I have a good bye.

Cook A Sweet Potato

(The following is a rough transcript from the below video)

The devil. I you. Well, excellent. Me too. Thank you very much for asking. It is national cooker sweet potato day as if there’s a day for cooking a sweet potato. I know they’ll make anything where they, anyway, so yesterday is national cookers, sweet potato day. Everybody cooks sweet potatoes these days because they want to be a little bit healthier than want something a bit nicer in their diet with less carbs. Um, and to try and tie this into social media, it got me thinking about how healthy is your content and your social media for your audience. Uh, because so many people just throw content out at different times of the day to potentially different audiences without really thinking seriously about their content and what they’re actually doing with that. So it begs the question, do you understand who your avatar is? If you don’t know what an avatar is, basically an avatar is the ideal customer for you, your niche customer.

And uh, I thought I would tie this one into LinkedIn because something I’ve been getting a lot of lately is people sending me requests to connect and either in their request, they’re sending to me, or the minute that I press accept on the request to connect, they’re sending me a sales message on the DMS. What are you thinking?

So I thought I’d open the floor to you guys for questions today to see what you wanted to ask about marketing in general and what you could do with your friends and your businesses. I put out videos and questions all over social media, so we’re just going to skip through some of them that came through today. Some of the more common questions I guest aghast and see if we can try and get through as many as we possibly can. Sound like a good idea. Brilliant, right? First platform that we went to tick tock.

In fact today I’ve been to Starbucks and paid for the next person, Starbucks without them knowing, so then they get a free coffee. That was my, or one of my random acts of kindness today. So I want to ask you a question on social media. What do you do as a random act of kindness every single day? I try to give them value for free and this is something that kind of you should be looking to do as well, no matter what business is you are in. I spoke about this the other day as well as so many people get caught up in social media and needing a return on investment, but they forget about the fact that social media is about being social and about giving something back to the community that is out there or potentially even the community that you’ve already built.

Do A Grouch A Favour

(The following is a transcript of the below video)

Now. Then how the devil are you. Well, excellent. Me too. Thank you very much for asking. So then it’s a quick video today. It’d been a Sunday and I want some time with my family. However, as today is do a grouch a favour day. I felt this was an ideal opportunity to discuss. One thing with you that I know is quite high on most people’s list and that is why they don’t press publish on quite a lot of their content. They don’t actually even start doing the content in the first place. It’s because we’re afraid of what other people might say. We’re afraid of trolls. Everyone’s favourite thing because you get these idiots keyboard warriors who go, you’re rubbish and they type it all out and they post it on your content and then you feel bad about it. Now the fact of the matter is I’m in a fortunate position doing what I’ve done over the years working in TV, working in radio.
