Two forgotten tips for content creators

Two forgotten tips for content creators

I see lots of extraordinary women who create equally extraordinary content on social media. I have been publishing content on the internet for over 3 years now and I would like to reveal two secrets that I learned from two admirable men: Ralph Smart and Roberto Blake.

First my friend my sister, you need a website. It is not an account on social, it is a space just for you, on which you manage the content as you want. Your website can be very simple. It can also include the content that you post on social media.

Then don’t make the same mistake I made and create a form that invites people who follow you to join your mailing list. This doesn’t mean that you’ll have to send out newsletters every week of course. But it allows you to have a direct connection with the people who appreciate what you put out into the world. Because all the free platforms that encourage us to post content on their site don’t belong to us. Rules can be changed. The link with people who are interested in what we publish is never guaranteed.

Kisses my friend my sister and continue to create.

First, to create a website, a domain name is required. A domain name identifies you on the internet with .com for instance and this is like your postal address with a number and street name.

The you need a server or a way to manage access to a centralized service in a network and this is like your actual house, where you your things are stored. When I can afford it, I’ll use WP Engine.

Then you’ll need a way to handle your content such as WordPress or Shopify so you can organize properly how you show your content online to the world.

Lastly you’ll have to stock your photos, sounds and videos somewhere, and this may be on your computer memory. However, you may want a safer and long term solution such as a cloud service, like AWS where you only pay what you use.
