When two guys with over two million social media followers between them sit down to share their secrets, it's a great opportunity to learn. This short, 6 minute video is jam-packed with helpful advice that anyone can start using immediately.
Justin Odisho is an absolute wizard with editing videos on Adobe Premiere Pro and has a YouTube channel that boasts 518k subscribers at the time of writing. Brian Barczyk, from Snakebytes TV, is an engaging animal adventurer who has almost 2 million subscribers across all his social media platforms. So when these two guys sat down together for a short, power-packed video discussing what works for them on social media, I was all ears.
Specifically, Brian Barzcyk talks about the "three C's" behind his success — consistency, content, and collaboration.
It really is important that you're consistent with posting if you want to build your followers and your relationships with people. Indeed, as life events have taken over for me in the past year and made it harder for me to post to Instagram as regularly as I'd like, I have seen a pronounced downturn in the number of business and collaboration opportunities coming my way.
Quite simply, if you're not being seen consistently you're not being found consistently. And it's interesting to hear these guys' views on the issue.
But what I really liked about this video and thought was most useful was their holistic views on collaborations. I have developed some great friendships and business opportunities through collaborations with other photographers on Instagram, and listening to these guys talk reaffirmed my belief that collaborations are a massive part of a successful business plan.
Have a look at these guys explaining the reasons why. It's only 6 minutes but it could have a big impact on the way you view, and use social media.
