Well, I've put it off long enough - I've GOT to get an Instagram account! And maybe a Twitter account and a SnapChat account and YouTube channel and a Tumblr. I always knew that I was just doing the bare minimum as far as social media was concerned, with just a Facebook account... but between my gigs, studio commissions, and invoicing/contracts/web agent accounts/wedding expos/all the other background stuff that goes into a small business, I just hadn't gotten around to it.
BUT THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR, BY GOLLY!
I am a bit concerned about content, however. Do I post the same things on IG and FB? Or totally different things on each account?
In order to kick off my IG account I'm thinking of getting a few ten-second-ish videos created, so I'm researching videographers in the area. (I don't want my videos to be SUPER polished or anything - amateur-style is fine because I think it's endearing, which is lucky because I can't afford wedding-style high-end videography - but I have only limited experience with video editing, so I still need to hire someone.)
So basically I'm in the throws of the beginnings of a project, which is always exciting. I have a notebook dedicated to the video project, with lists of ideas and sketches of storyboards for my ideas. (My favorite is so far is a series of short videos called "How NOT to draw a caricature" featuring myself doing things like creating a caricature by dumping a can of paint on a canvas.) I am hoping it will come together this year but we'll see.
Until next time!
