WIKO gives us 5 tips on how to use the smartphone to create content
Take notes: show off all your ideas
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with a spectacular idea and thought you remember the next morning? Sure, then you wake up and you know you had an idea, but you can’t remember what it was. There is nothing worse than having a great idea for an Instagram post or a story for a blog post and not being able to remember it. Instead of carrying a notepad wherever you go, use your smartphone to point ideas in any notepad app available on your PlayStore, so you can refer to them when you need them.
Use the audio recorder
The audio recorder may not be just for storing ideas. Can you record reactions and for what? Podcasts. They are becoming more and more popular, so if you are planning on doing a podcast, why not record your reactions to events or interactions in your own words to create educational or even fun audio tracks? Nowadays, to record a good podcast in a quiet room, participants and a smartphone are enough. In other cases, you can also use this smartphone feature to record a brainstorming session or team meeting, for example, and then enjoy those ideas.
Record videos and catch all the action
It wasn’t that long ago that you had to walk around with a heavy camera to create this kind of content. Currently, just take a hand in your pocket. The ability that smartphones offer to content creators when it comes to shooting, editing and sharing videos is truly amazing. With the continuous improvement in camera quality and sites like YouTube making it easier to share videos, making great movies is no longer just Hollywood. Record videos for your social networks or blog and share them with your followers.
The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is never worn. Have you traveled to a place and want to be inspired by it to create content? Photograph it so that your memory does not erase a lot of detail. Do you want to have better engagement on your social networks? Capture more than pictures: capture moments. A request for engagement, the opening of a new business, a goal achieved, a place to visit – photos are not only incredibly effective, they are also quite easy to take thanks to smartphones! Differentiate yourself according to the type of photography you take – use super wide angle to show everything around you, macro to capture the smallest details and bokeh to give relief and focus on what really matters. Find something you want to share, take the photo and share it on social media with a good caption.
Looking for inspiration
You have in your hands an inexhaustible source of inspiration: your smartphone is an open door to the world, via the internet. Spend an hour or two looking at pages of brands or influencers with content similar to what you want and be inspired by them to find your own style in what you want to portray. The point is not to copy their content, but to understand what already exists and where you can position yourself to offer something unique to your audience.
Over time, you’ll lean on your smartphone to do all of this without even realizing it, if you haven’t already – and creating content without having to think twice about how to do it! Gradually you can start developing interactive content accompanied by text, photos, audio and short videos, not only to tell your followers what you are doing, but also to show them and make them feel that they belong to your life.
