Consider Video

Video is hot. All the major social media platforms support it now, with either their own video functions or compatibility with other applications. I’m not just talking about YouTube, although that platform remains the most powerful video posting platform. There are loads of other options for creating and posting compelling video now, and they aren’t as difficult to learn or use as you’d think.

Skip the geese and just get me a dozen eggs instead. Pop a bow on the carton. Or better yet, stick with the fine jewelry. (Props for Day 5.)egg

As I strain this metaphor to its breaking point, though, I will say that 6 people landing on your digital content, laying down comments, and sharing it with their friends is a very good gift indeed. And just as six geese may quickly turn out dozens of new baby geese, your 6 original fans will quickly turn into many more if you’ve got interesting content to share. Nothing is more engaging for Internet fans than video.
