How do you invest in yourself as Content Creator:
Attitude is everything. If you want to invest in yourself, a positive attitude can lead you to live a rather stress free live. Negativity and short falls are inevitable. But if you can spare good over bad decisions, you have half won the battle. The next step is to share this attitude with your audience.
Social media is all about sharing our journeys. If you can transform your audience lives with your right attitude, you spearhead than others. How?
2. Good Communication:
We all have own flair and style of communicating our thoughts. But sometimes we fumble and doubt over our ideas. Whether it is written communication or verbal, invest in yourself to spare few minutes daily to work on your communication. Take a diary and write atleast a para each day. Chat with your friends or family. Pay attention to the words you speak.
As a social media creator in any form, be it blogging, video creation, audio, design, your message has to understood by your audience. Instead of repeating the same words, work to increase your vocabulary.
3. Beyond the Number Game:
Does the number of likes, follows drive your sleep away? I used to refresh my feed to see how my post faired during the day. It felt funny waiting for something magical to happen out of nowhere. Have you been in this ruckus?
Stick to keep your numbers as a tangible indicator for your work. There’s more than just numbers. Imagine you to be sitting with sulky face in front of a camera doing a live audience session!
Keep a detox time to rejuvenate your mind. The process of coming up with ideas, working on it, editing and promotion already requires you to don many hats. Don’t make it difficult by adding numbers, rather focus on the quality of content.

A cheerful vibrant personality always attracts more audience than a whiner.
5. Make public speaking your strength:
Reminds me of my college days when Group discussions and presentations used to hound me. Typical introvert kind. Are you jittery about speaking on stage? Thanks to graduation course which needed presentations in every subject, I finally curbed my fears. The tingling sensation is still there, but much better.
Speaking in front of a crowd does get overwhelming. The solution is not take it as a duty. Make it part of your daily activity. At first, coming in front of camera bothers you, spend more time to respond to your subscribers comments, emails etc. Choose a time to converse with your audience. The nature of being familiar with people will debug your fears of speaking publicly.
6. Pursue Social Awareness:
Get socially aware about things happen around you. Social media gives you a platform to showcase your skills. But also gives you the power to voice your opinion about an issue or cause. How will you contribute if you don’t have eve a faint idea about the event? Being content creators make you land in role of being influencers. People want to know what you think of a situation. This is beyond your content.
Dedicate time to brief yourself about the latest happenings, current affairs, industry expertise etc. Enrol yourself for courses that enhances your content creation process.
A well rounded content creator is poised to create and share the best value an audience wants. Community engagement is possible only if you vouch the quality of content and dedicate your efforts to build a rappo with your audience. Having invested in yourself as creator, you can be true to your brand voice. You inculcate the power to share opinions, build a growing viewership and a nuture a healthy community.
