Something I've noticed, pretty much overnight is how the world's perception of writing did a complete 360! It's gone from: "Seriously no one cares about writing, it doesn't matter anymore!" To this: "Writing is the most important thing! chatGPT our saviour! Writing is so important!" (go back and re-read that in the most corporate tone you could imagine 🏙️) I love this shift don't get me wrong but what caused this momentum swing ... chatGPT. I've been on it day in day out for the past month testing and experimenting what works and what doesn't, and let me tell you what I've found: ✅ chatGPT should be considered as a robot perched on your shoulder ❌ chatGPT is not a creator of content, YOU ARE! Instead of treating it as a microwave that's going to cook up your copy and content in seconds, use it to do the following: 🧠 Brainstorm 📝 Refine and edit your brilliant ideas 🤯 Act as a sounding board for when you have writers block If there's one thing that's been made clear in the first month of 2023... it's that WRITTING MATTERS! Have you jumped on chatGPT? What are your thoughts?
We have experienced this and it is something to be aware of! We come across a creator that looks great, they have great video examples and we send them a brief to film content. When it comes to them returning content, we have high expectations then we realise they haven't filmed content themselves and that someone has filmed them in content, so the content they filmed isn't as high quality as the examples they sent in. This means we require revisions and it blows out timelines. Instagram is one to be aware of, many photos and reels of creators looking amazing are often shot by photographers/videographers and have not been edited by the creator. TikTok is a platform where you can see what content they have filmed and edited themselves (but you can't message them if you both aren't following each other). So if you find someone you love on TikTok who is creating great content themselves - search for their TikTok handle on Instagram and reach out that way (they often have the same handle across socials or send them an email if they have their email listed!) Always check creators are creating content themselves (and not having someone film and edit it with the creator featuring in it!)

When it comes to content and collaborating with creators, ALWAYS have an extra 1 or 2 creators than you need. You are working with humans who have their own lives and things pop up (trust us we do this daily we've had covid, the flu, pets getting sick, problems with deliveries, products breaking, creators travelling, creators moving house, fires, floods, sick family members, creators breaking limbs and the list goes onnnnnnn) these are just a small list of issues that can arise with working with creators. Having a back up will allow you to have enough content should 1 (or god forbid more than 1) creator pull out of their content commitment (you don't want to be scrambling for content). If all creators pull through and send in content then great, you have lots of content to spread out for your posting schedule (too much content is such a lovely problem to have!) Trust me, organise that extra creator!
TikTok is known for its user-friendly interface, editing tools, and filters that make it easy for users to create and share short-form videos. To make the most of the platform, it's important to create content that is native to TikTok, meaning content that takes advantage of the platform's unique features and formats. By doing so, you can increase the chances of your content being discovered by the algorithm and reaching a wider audience. Some of the most notable features of the app include: - Lip-syncing: users can lip-sync to popular songs, dialogues from movies or speeches, and other audio clips. - Filters and effects: TikTok has a wide range of filters and effects that users can apply to their videos, including facial recognition filters, colour filters, and special effects like time-lapse and slow-motion. - Duet videos: users can film themselves with another video playing side by side, often called a duet, and which is a great way to collaborate with other users or create creative content. - Challenges: TikTok is also known for its popular challenges, which are often tied to a specific song or hashtag and allow users to participate in a trending activity. - Live broadcasting: TikTok allows users to go live and broadcast their video to followers, also adding features such as live chat, virtual gifts, and polls to make it interactive. - Reactions: TikTok allows users to respond to a live video by recording a video of themselves while watching, known as a reaction video. - Virtual reality: TikTok users can use VR to create an immersive experience and make the video more visually appealing By creating content that is native to TikTok, you can increase the chances of your content being discovered by the algorithm and reaching a wider audience. It also makes your content unique and engaging which will attract more followers and will increase the possibility of viral spread. Which of these elements can you try this week? :)

Hook, line and sink em! Just like fishing, copywriting often has a three step formula that we recommend you following to land the biggest fish A.K.A the biggest sales! Whether you’re writing ad copy, ad ideas or even social media captions the following three steps may just transform your assets and take your business to the next level 📈 1. Hook em in 🪝 First, you've gotta cast your hook with a catchy headline that really stops your audience in their tracks. Just like a fisherman, you want to choose bait that is going grab your target audiences attention. Make sure it's irresistible. 2. Line em up 🐟 Next, you need to reel them in with a well-written script that perfectly sums up what you're offering. This is like the fisherman's bait – it needs to be interesting enough to grab their attention and tasty enough to keep it. To keep the copy/script interesting for long enough you need to offer value by lining up the benefits of your product or service. 3. Sink the sale💰 Finally, you need to sink the sale with a compelling call-to-action.

TikTok has made a home for itself in the digital marketing world, we all know it's the number one tool to grow your business in 2023…But how can you leave that memorable first impression, without sacrificing your authentic brand message? With over-saturation and constant change on the app, it’s important to not get sucked into trending videos and audio as a haven. So, here are my hot takes on how to show up and stand out in 2023, and not regret it in 2024. 1. The art of subtlety - There is nothing worse when can see someone forcing a video on you or a product for that matter. We have all become attuned to the smallest speckle of a sale and therefore we need to become conscious of how we may over-act and over-sell to be seen. Take a deep breath, relax, and remember that being yourself is the best way to show up! 2. How do you want to be remembered? - This might sound a little deep, but really, you deserve to leave a mark on the world. The same reason you started your business, is the same reason that you should be seen. It can be easy to get overwhelmed with choice, so coming back to your WHY will help you focus your video content to not just align with the app, but so the app is aligned with you. 3. It’s okay to be a little vulnerable - Being intimate with your audience on the internet is a fairly new practice, but boy does it make a difference. People are becoming more and more comfortable with sharing parts of their stories and journey that they wouldn’t have dared to five years ago. By remembering that we are all human at the end of the day, and connection is the number one way to build trust, you can start building content that comes from the heart. You can practice by writing, making draft videos to get comfortable or by starting a conversation that opens the door to this topic within your company. 4. And for the corniest of them all - Be Yourself. I’ll say it once, and I’ll say it again… just be yourself. Doesn’t that feel good? You can feel your shoulders drop, the pressure subsides, and the expectation vanishes. You know yourself best and trust that what you have to put out there will be found by the right people! You are the niche that the world needs! I know we’ve heard it before, but that’s why it works. So next time you’re stressing about how to show up, take a break and go do something that feels completely YOU before filming or coming up with ideas. Once your return I assure you, it will feel easier and you’ll be in a better state to create!
Colloquial language is a way of speaking that is casual and informal. It is the kind of language you might use when you're talking to your friends or family. It might have slang words, figurative language, and different grammar than you would use in a more formal setting. It is often used in spoken conversations and in writing to make it feel more natural and like a real conversation. But why use colloquial language on TikTok, or any other social media platform? Using colloquial language, can help connect with your audience and make your content more relatable and authentic. The nature of colloquial language makes you seem more approachable and down-to-earth, which can be especially important on platforms where people are sharing their thoughts and experiences. Additionally, colloquial language can make you stand out from other content by giving your videos a unique and authentic voice. However, it's important to keep in mind that colloquial language may not be appropriate in all situations. It's always a good idea to consider your audience and the context in which you're using it. To use colloquial language effectively on TikTok, consider using popular TikTok trends and terms that your target audience will be familiar with. You can also try using humour and pop culture references to make your content more engaging and memorable. Just be sure to be authentic and genuine in your use of colloquial language, as trying to imitate the language of others can come across as inauthentic. Some examples of popular TikTok colloquial language include terms such as girlies, mood, savage, lit, hot girl walk, gate keep, gym rats, fit fam, and glow up. Still don’t believe me? Brands such as Chipotle, Nike, McDonald’s and Qantas have all found great success promoting their brands on Tiktok by connecting with younger consumers and creating humorous, catchy and trending videos that utilise colloquial language and pop culture references. Another prime example is how Wendy’s utilised their twitter account to promote it brand and gain viral traction due to their sassy humour that everyday consumers related with.
Here are some of my fave TikTok words to use heheh - Slay: To do something exceptionally well or confidently. - Lit: Something that is very exciting or cool. - Finna: A shortened version of "fixing to," meaning that someone is about to do something. - Salty: Angry or upset. - Low-key: Something that is done or said secretly or indirectly. - High-key: Something that is done or said openly or directly. - Fam: A shortened version of "family," used to refer to close friends. - Ghost: To suddenly stop responding to someone's messages or interactions. - Gucci: A slang term meaning that everything is good or going well. - Lit AF: Something that is extremely exciting or cool. - Spilling the tea: Sharing gossip or revealing secrets. It's important to note that slang terms can vary and change quickly, especially on social media platforms like TikTok. These are just a few examples of colloquial terms that are commonly used on the platform.
