Hey ya'll, here I am again back at it with the start of this week's blog. We are going into the second week of Mattie Jame's consistency challenge, and I feel good. I have managed to post consistently thus far. I feel like I am learning you guys and what you like, which has made my job easier. Blogging is hard; creating content can be difficult. A lot goes into blogging, a lot of thought and planning, but it is nonetheless rewarding.
Being able to show up consistently is imperative. You can foster a healthy relationship with your followers. Figure out what your particular niche is, as well as be taken seriously in this field. I am in no way perfect. However, I have implemented the five following things that have helped me be successful.
1. Shoot batch content.
I typically like shooting my content on Saturdays. I will get ready to do my makeup and shoot more than one look. Doing this makes it easier to plan out your content and plan out your feed ahead of time.
2. Write out your content ideas.
It is easy to take pictures. If you do not plan out what you need to get done, it is easier to forget something. You want to get the most out of your time.
3. Kill two birds with one stone
Meaning, try to get the most out of your content. For instance, you can do a video on your makeup look, get dressed, do some content regarding your outfit, and shoot for your campaign later on.
4. Plan out your feed
I have downloaded an Instagram feed planner app that allows me to pre-post and write captions ahead of time. Doing so will enable you to see everything that you have coming up visually. You are less likely to post and delete if you know what your IG feed will look like ahead of time.
5. Keep going
This tip is easier said than done when it comes to having consistency. You have to understand that progress is better than perfection. It would help if you kept going, the only thing separating you from everything you want is your ability to be consistent.
I hope this helped you, and it has undoubtedly helped me show up and continue to show out. Remember, you got this, keep going, stick with your tunnel vision. You may not be where you want to be, but you are far from where you started.
As always with nothing but love,
