There are so many ways to reach your audience these days. Ten years ago, blogging was considered everyone’s bread and butter, so to speak. It was the primary way we could share our message and get our content out there. Nowadays there are so many different platforms to choose from.
Youpreneurs are spread across various platforms including blogging, vlogging, podcasting, using social media like Instagram and Instagram stories while other Youpreneurs focus on growing communities on Facebook or even shooting live streaming videos.
This week, however, I want to zoom in on two main mediums: podcasting and vlogging. Tune in as I weigh the pros and cons of each and share a few tips on deciding which medium is right for you.
I also share some interesting facts on why both mediums are worth jumping on, what you can do to get used to being in front of the camera and so much more. If you are still on the fence about whether you should be a podcaster or a vlogger, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.No one feels completely comfortable in front of the camera during their first few videos. The key is to just keep shooting videos to get yourself more accustomed to it. #Youpreneur Click To Tweet
