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.
