Ever wonder where you should 'Start sharing your content & messages first?' ...or even "What IS my message anyway?" Perhaps you know what your message is overall and you can feel it, but you would love to see it hashed out a little bit better... but in the meantime, you feel that you don't want to waste precious time when it comes to posting and sharing!
The answer to these sorts of questions isn't the same for everybody... However, If you are the creative/quietly expressive type and OR Really & truly brand new, just starting out (to get your message out there)... this idea is for you. . .
"Create where you feel inspired to create and then... syndicate."
By doing so, you both ascertain more of your message... get to literally hash out the wording as you feel inspired AND post in the meantime. You can always reuse those posts, the wording you liked, and syndicate those messages on other channels later. Don't get wrapped up in worrying about 'the latest platform where 'all the people are.' Post where you feel inspired first! Post through the medium or platform that is easiest and or gives you the most comfort and inspiration first. If it's your perfected message to share you're after, worry about numbers and viewer count only secondly.
This is the principal behind my composition first method. It's the method I use & the one I highly recommend to #artists , #writers , #teachers , #counselors , #mission based #leaders, and other #creatives . If you have had trouble finding your flow look no further and try this method. Numbers come second to your message.
You must do this if you are camera shy. This tip works on the basic psychological principal of 'de-sensitization' which means it bypasses and 'confidence' barriers, thoughts about your own looks (whether you love them or don't love them so much) etc!
Here it is... straight from my original post on Instagram:
This is my biggest tip for overcoming camera-shyness or even audio recorder shyness / fear of your own voice. It may not sound like much... but there is great psychology to it... BUT here's the key: once you do this you MUST force yourself to listen to it or watch it fully no matter how 'bad' it is or uncomfortable you feel. This is the most important psychological piece (in my opinion). It's desensitizing or formally called desensitization. ... and no matter what your 'reason(s)' are for hiding or staying quiet... it's a way around them without over-focusing on them (which can sometimes only make things even tougher!) Hope you enjoyed this tip. Remember, just one little bit at a time. We're not going for speed here.
