Whilst they all give up their time free of charge, trust me – it doesn’t mean it’s been free for all of us!! We’ve paid along the way, so we’re now paying forward. We paid because we’ve got experience, we’ve made mistakes, and we’ve made errors. But it’s all of those things, that have taught us what we know today!
That’s why we’re here.
We’re here to help you, give value, and assist you as much as we can.
Everyone can come to stage and ask their questions, and all you need to do is raise your hand. [ Bottom right of the app ]
It’s great etiquette to follow the speakers and moderators.
If you do, over the next month and a half before the doors get opened to the general public, you have got the best chance of linking, connecting, following and being in the same group so the moderators and the speakers that are here up the stage now.

ItsNomad9 // ImTristanG
I’ve brought together this panel for you this evening to give you the opportunity to ask those questions that have been niggling. Those problems that you might have.
For those who don’t know me, you can find me as
@ImTristanG across all the socials
I head up a digital marketing agency that’s focused around content creation and organic growth.
We literally take the ideas out of your head, and cohesively communicate them across all the different social platforms.
Everybody’s got 24 hours in a day, and I’m a strong believer that, with the right systems and processes in place, you can show up in more places than you think you might be able to. We can show you exactly how to do that, so I’m going to focus today around organic growth, content creation and the strategy that sits behind that!
He’s a great advocate for utilising all sorts of different tools to get himself across to different platforms. I absolutely love that!
I’m your host, I’m not necessarily a marketer. I know a little bit about marketing, but we have plenty of advocates and experts around here on the mod panel, and hosting the show, I’m a Virtual Chief Operations Officer and I provide virtual back office services for businesses, so that they can move themselves forward, and concentrate on the revenue generating tasks.
The reason Tristan and I came across each other, was through podcasting, and that’s a great way of getting yourself out there – using audio and video content!
‘How effective do you guys think Reels are for business in Instagram?
REBECCA : I’m really enjoying Instagram Reels at the moment, and one of the big bonuses about reels is that they are shown to people beyond your followers!
So your posts and your stories obviously only people are following you can see those, whereas with Reels; Instagram are trying really hard to beat TikTok, so they are pushing those Reels out to as many people as they can on that explore page!
So I recommend that you definitely have a go at testing. See what other people are putting out there. You don’t have to do the silly dancing and pointing if you don’t want to, there’s plenty of serious people that are giving value, and getting their content seen.
ALICIA : It has fantastic organic reach. As a lot of people who first get on Reels discover, their views are going to be way higher than if you did IGTV, or posted on your page. It’s having more eyeballs on your content, which is more opportunity for you to get seen, people to follow you, be interested in your content, and the organic reach is amazing!
You’ve not only got the older population, but a lot of the young ones who are into TikTok also use Instagram. Even though they’re young, and you think they’re not going to be your target audience, they also have parents and people that they know.
So reels in general is great organic reach, and I highly highly recommend using them!
I’m new this & it’s my first time asking a question. It’s a two-part question;
- Should we be focusing broadly across all platforms or should we be specialising in one platform? (i.e Facebook vs Instagram)
- If we should be going broadly, should we be changing our content across those platforms for each of our audiences?
@ImTristanG : This is a fairly common question that gets asked a lot, and it really comes down to how much time and resource you’ve got. If you’ve got the resources to show up in more places, it’s advisable to do that, because there’s some platforms you may in your head have got a disconnect to how it might work. But I know from experience, having put like high-end business coaches onto Snapchat, TikTok and things like that.
You can find business in places that you wouldn’t necessarily expect;
So if you’ve got the resources and the capacity to do it;
Or can leverage that capacity, then definitely you want to show up in as many places as possible!
I think it absolutely comes down to having a good systems & processes in place.
Again the process of getting the content out and how much it should be customised; Ideally you want to customise things to each platform, and there are nuances to each platform, that you need to consider, however showing up there, and as long as it is value driven, and you’re making sure that it actually is adding value.
Lots of people talk about it, but actual value – then that that’s going to help you to grow organically.
ALICIA : I would completely agree with everything that Tristan said about being omnipresent. Having presence on all social platforms, is like the number one thing for marketing, and obviously we all have only 24 hours a day.
We have limited resources, but as much as possible, if you’re really serious about growing your business, to be on as many platforms as possible! The reason for this is because not everybody is on every platform.
If they consume your content on Facebook, and that’s the only place that they’re at, that’s how they’re going to be, that’s how you’re going to reach them. They might come across you on Facebook, but they’re not necessarily comfortable on Facebook, that way you can transfer them over to Instagram, where they may be more comfortable with consuming content.
The omnipresent is important if you have the capacity to do that.
To your second question – for sure! Do that, simply because people go to different platforms for different reasons.
If people are on Linkedin they’re obviously looking for business connections, on Instagram they want to be entertained, and if they’re on Facebook they want to connect, they want to chat, they want to connect with family and friends.
Be sure to audit your content, and your captions & your text to suit each platform.
REBECCA : One thing that I find when I’m doing social media audits with people is they’ve started an account on lots of different platforms, but then they haven’t added to it for a couple of months, to a year. So I always say
If you’re gonna be on every platform, make sure at least everything is up to date;
- Your bios updated
- You’ve got the same photo on them
- You’ve got recent content
But make sure in your bio, like Alicia said, you’re directing them to where you normally are!
My home is Instagram. Come and find me over on Instagram.
You don’t have to come up with completely different content for each platform, if you’ve done a really good article on Linkedin, you could then take a quote from that and make a graphic on Instagram, because it’s very visual!
With that quote on Twitter it’s quick tweets, take a section of that, and tweet it out.
You can change that, or have a discussion on Facebook.
So you can use the same content, but just very easily manipulate it for each one, and then it’s not going to take so long to do!
@ImTristanG : I’m just going to quickly fire off the back of this Rebecca. Talking about bios and using those to to craft things. For anyone who doesn’t want to step on stage, or has a question and that they want to get it in and answered.
If you click on my face and go to my bio, there is actually a URL at the top, a nice short one – that if you want to submit a question, and not step on stage, you can actually do it through that form. We’ll get it straight through on the computer!
Elliot : Repurposing is absolutely key when it comes to marketing. We need to do the least amount of work, and get the most amount of traction. Great stuff!
[ REMINDER TO LINK SOCIAL PROFILES TO YOUR CLUBHOUSE PROFILE ]
Regarding branding and social media, My question is;
My wife and I just started the social media business about six months ago, and we’re quickly realising that our voices are shining through our business page, which is what we want, but we wanted to have that business perspective as well.
So want to get some of your guys advice on;
Do we continue what we’re doing now, and just letting our voice shine through our Wholesome profile, while also still getting that voice to go through our personal profiles as well. I want to know your thought process on that?
GUS : You and your wife are people, I know that’s a cliche, I know we use it so many times, but you have to show your personality. Whatever social media you use, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin. Whatever it may be, people want to know people!
I did a post earlier this week on Linkedin, and told people that I support a particular football team, or I drive a particular car, and all that kind of stuff.
It’s got nothing to do with me running a social media business, but people like to know the person behind the brand!
I would always say, get people to know you and your partner, tell them stories, tell them about your dogs, or the lasagna you had last night etc.
Don’t forget the audience. They want to buy from you.
They don’t care about the brands, and the colour palettes, and the logos!
IAN : I do a lot of social media training for small businesses, and bigger businesses as well, and this is one of the questions that comes all the time!
People are always very conflicted when they’re talking about social media, especially Facebook, because Facebook obviously originally felt like your personal profiles, and was very personal, individual things.
I started off with a personal profile in my name obviously because that’s what you’re supposed to do, and then what I did was I set up a professional profile page but till have The Social Ninja.
When I teach these tricks and tactics, if you like I tell them to try and stick to a little bit of a formula, when they’re putting content out there.
If you’re posting onto your personal profile, which you should should do all the time anyway use the 80 : 20 rule. So 80% of the content that you’re pushing out there is purely personal, to do with you, your life your background, what you have for dinner, your dogs, all the rest of it, but then drip feed in there 10 to 20% of your work content as well. It can be mixed in with a personal story very easily.
On the other hand, with if you’ve got a professional profile, like mine Ian Wright – The Social Ninja, the 80% all gonna be professional, with 20% on personal.
Obviously when you’re putting personal things out on your business page, you’ve just got to be careful the kind of stuff you’re putting out there. Don’t put anything out there that’s too fresh and raw. But if you’ve got stories from the past, share them if things are going on in your life, share them.
It works really well, and as Gus said, people like doing business with people.
REBECCA : I’m going to be really brave here and test out a theory that is going to either make me look stupid or really help you with this question.
Jeremy potentially two million people out there on the clubhouse, all I know is that your name is Jeremy really, I’ve looked at your your bio, but it doesn’t say much.
Are you looking after two guys social media here in the UK?
So that has worked! I know that these two guys have just taken on a husband and wife team to do their social media. I’m aware one of them is called Jeremy
I think those peeps are involved, because you’ve done personal marketing, and told your story. I have picked you up, and I know you – isn’t that amazing!
@ImTristanG : As someone who sits between running an agency and running a personal brand – notice that when I opened up, I didn’t actually drop my brand for the for the company.
I actually dropped my personal brand, because the personal relationship for me is where all the magic happens! ‘@ImTristanG across all the socials’ was my intro
Now it depends, there’s no straight answer, because it depends on the outcomes that you’re looking for. But you’re in a blessed position, that there’s two of you already! I don’t know if you’ve got anyone else that works with you, but if you have a personal brand for each person, and they’re happy to step into that, and be themselves in that space, they’re going to build their own relationships, and you can actually cross post between all of the people in the organisation, back to the organisation profiles.
For large organisations it’s actually a really competitive advantage. 100 people sat in an office for Linkedin in Sydney for example, that we’ve been into. They don’t ever leverage that, because at a big corporate level they’ve forgotten that human element!
That the human to human connection – think about the power of having a hundred people that were happy to share about their experience, in their voice talking around the work that you do.
You need context!
For me, depending on the platform I’m on, depends on how much of my life you see.
So if you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably gonna see much more about what I eat, what I do, where I go, the running, the exercise.
Whereas on Facebook I’m down to business.
- I’m teaching
- I’m training
- I’m mentoring
- I’m coaching
…and so we’ve differentiated it like that, but my personal brand then feeds the business brand too!
Oh my gosh!
Oh my gosh!
Thank you so much, great stuff!
ELLIOT : Great questions – listen how much value is there to get from the moderators and co-hosts up here? A wealth of experience and hopefully these little tips & trick’s are going to help you Jeremy!
ANGUS : Not so much a question more observation really, but my question would be around the observation. I think personalisation is everything! When it comes to anything to do with social media, my platform is Linkedin! I’m known as the Linkedin Unlocker, so that’s my personal brand! Anything personalisation works a treat on linkedin, and I’ve got some favourite methodologies of doing that. With every connection request, I send a video as part of the connection requests, and they see both at the same time. I reply with video, and I use audio a lot! I also follow up with post cards too, which carries the whole message through to different media.
For me that allows me to build a relationship with somebody incredibly quickly.
100 postcards go out every week, and the ROI: Return On Ink is about 80, so it’s not bad!
Any tips that the moderators have in terms of personalising Linkedin?
ELLIOT : I’ve been moderating a lot of rooms, and the general consensus has been that LinkedIn is a worthwhile investment of your time for 2021…
GUS : I like to tell people that I’m a Linkedin trainer, but I’ve also learned a lot from yourself and actually it’s there it’s the personality it’s the personable nature of Linkedin I love.
This morning I ran a Linkedin training course for the Chamber Of Commerce and most of the questions were about doing b2c or only dealing with small businesses et cetera. ‘Linkedin is not for me’
Actually Linkedin is for every business, because ultimately all businesses are run by people and i think the personality comes through the DMs
Using voice to pronounce your name, clicking the speaker so you can add a bit of personality there. Like you said, you can send the videos, you can follow up from Linkedin, in terms of getting people’s contact details.
I love the ‘Return On Ink’ that you that you mentioned – that’s that’s fantastic because that’s just a follow-up from Linkedin!
With any business relationship, and any personal relationship, it’s not simply about sending a few DMs and leaving it there. It’s actually having that conversation.
I think it’s it’s the conversational element that is really key on Linkedin, because it’s not like you have to pay for ads, or all that other stuff. It’s not monetised properly.
It’s all about;
- Good engagement
- Good contact
- Good numbers
….and obviously actually actually speaking to people probably!!
ANGUS : I think the content attracts prospects and conversations create clients. I think that’s the way that certainly for 2021.
IAN : I’ve got a quick tip on this this, and I’m not a massive on Linkedin, I must admit. Because my main platform’s Facebook. But what’s working really really well for me at the moment, and I’m sure you can transfer this to Linkedin is, when you’re actually messaging prospects, or follow-ups, actually doing a video message rather than just a text message. Even if it’s only a thirty second video.
They convert for me, I would say 10 times better.
You can do this over on linkedin as well
GUS : It really depends on the recipient, because me personally, I mean, first of all I’ve got a face for radio, and second of all, I love the sound of my own voice! So that’s why I love Clubhouse!
@ImTristanG : Angus I’m just gonna talk into the the personalisation element here, and it’s not exclusive to Linkedin, this this applies to everywhere!
I talk about it a lot;
Two ears, one mouth.
Listen twice as much as you talk.
This is so that when you talk, you can talk to those people, in their language, the way they want to be communicated with, and sometimes that personal element – like you said and I know you’re a big advocate of sending a video, or sending audio.
I know you’re utilising those both really well across the platform, but most people want to get in quicker – and this isn’t necessarily going in for the sell, or anything like that, but they haven’t invested the time in the relationship at the beginning. Maybe consuming some of the content. They might scan through someone’s bio, or their profile, and read a couple of links, going back and looking through some of the content. If they published a video that you can watch, or put on in the background – so you’ve got a really deep awareness of what’s important to them.
Also to touch on what Gus is saying, it’s the human to human element.
You can only do that as you get to know them.
We all know that the longer we’ve had a relationship with someone, the more attentively we can meet their needs. Also anything you can do to WOW and excite.
I love the fact that you do the ‘Return On Ink’ example for two reasons;
- Who gets anything good in the post anymore?
- You’re giving an example that is ROI, which people know about and talk about but you’ve owned it as your own phrase & therefore that will make people remember it (you’ve personalised even the sentence that you’ve used)
ANGUS : It’s like GDPR: Growing Deeper Personal Relationships
And I think that people forget that that’s the whole point of all of this marketing marketing malarkey
@ImTristanG : I’m grabbing notes & screenshots of everybody who’s been in the room as they’re asking questions, & I’ve got behind the scenes chat going on here too, because Elliot is currently hosting the room. This allows me to multitask & develop the screenshots & to communicate through an instagram chat to make sure that everybody knows what’s going on.
@KayleighFazan I launched my business a few months ago and I’ve already kind of mastered the linkedin platform that is my jam that is where I’m performing really well inbound leads are coming every single day,I’ve just set up a Facebook group for my business and, I’m finding it really difficult to grow my community on there, but what I don’t want to do is to spam my personal community by inviting them to that group, because I know that they are not my clients, so my question is….
How can I grow my Facebook group without spamming my existing connections on there, like my family, and my friends.
ELLIOT : Link your Instagram to do your profile, make sure you do that, and you will possibly get a lot more people are going to be interested in what you do, as you build up your followers, and that could be possibly a good way of getting them into a Facebook group.
SAMANTHA : My story is that basically I moved to an area where I was a new mum, didn’t know any other mums, and started on the Facebook group 10 years ago, and it’s the mums who built that community, of like-minded mums. So speak to the people in the group, and get them to invite like-minded people.
Are you blogging?
Use longer forms of social media to tie them in to get them into your Facebook group as well.
You have to give value & a reason why they’re joining that group. A lot of people actually do it the opposite way around, and they actually launch and have their group sat there and have people invited to the group after.
Really think about who ideal customer is, where they’re hanging out, and concentrate on the ones where they’re hanging out. Set up a presence across all social media, but last year I concentrated on two – one long form, one short form, and really concentrate on that, because you will know who your ideal client is and where they hang out!
@ImTristanG : With respect to the not spamming, I can completely relate to that, and a lot of people not wanting to use their own Facebook profile to do that, and you’re completely right to do that.
There’s lots of advice out there, but actually if you if you really understand the T&Cs of the platform, which you need to! Similar to here, you should actually be using your personal profile to connect with people that you actually know, or who you’re building relationships with. Yes that crosses over to business, but you actually shouldn’t make that the primary place for business!
You need to put things where they belong, so business should see a business space. When you go out, if you went to a networking, you are the person, representing the business.
When you do that, you have to use your profile to like go to certain groups, because some groups won’t allow pages in.
You could have a a brand page, for you as a person, as the entrepreneur, as the business owner, as the person running the business, that you could potentially use for that.
Go to the groups, and to add massive value and have conversations. There’s so much gold inside Facebook groups, and to grow your own group without spamming others, or not poaching people, you’re not saying come join my group. What you’re doing is going over, talking in those groups, adding enough and providing enough value to them, and helping them with problems in your specialist area, which means that they will suddenly wonder, who’s this that’s being so helpful in the group? They’ll look at your profile, and as long as you’re doing the marketing right, and you’ve got that trail that leads from your profile back to your groups, then you we convert. You can also link the group to your page as well, if you’re using the page, or you can have it in your bio on your profile, if that’s the way you’re doing it. Which is that breadcrumb trail, that will lead them from the value that you’ve provided in someone else’s group, straight back into your group as well!!
That’s absolute gold Tristan, thanks so much!
Thank you very much
EDDIE : I think a lot of people sometimes sleep on email marketing as well, to drive people to their Facebook group. I run a few Facebook groups, and one in particular probably gets 70 to 80% of their members directly from email list building, and email list marketing. Where those people are the ones that have given you that valuable information, because you have already provided value for them, so they want more. When you’re doing your email marketing, don’t forget to link at the bottom; ‘If you enjoy this content & obviously you do, be sure to join my Facebook group.’ And watch your Facebook group continue to grow, not only from social media, but from other outlets like email marketing as well.
REBECCA : Email marketing, but the other way around – When you’re building your group, make sure you’re getting people’s email addresses, so you can add them to your list. It could be one of the questions before they join the group;
‘Would you like to receive more information, enter your email address here if you would’
I did thank you all so much.
Real golden nuggets.
I love this room.
The promise of social media leads people to believe that they should be on broadcast, okay and I’m in my 40s now, and about 40 odd years ago my granddad said to me – ‘You have two ears you’ve got one mouth and you should use them in that proportion‘ and I’ve always lived by that, and he’s been dead for many many many years but i still remember that very clearly. I think it’s the same on social media, I think we should be listening an awful lot more than we’re talking, yet the promise, there’s no shortage of experts that will tell you that with automation, and with clever whiz-bang, you can you can talk to millions of people. But for me it turns into white noise!
So I’d be really interested to hear from the panel about how they feel social media is in terms of the proportion of Talking Vs Listening?
ALICIA : Amazing question! I think it’s applicable these days, because we could be throwing out content, but we’re in such a noisy world, we don’t know what to listen to, who to listen to.
I was actually in a room yesterday, and they were talking about aggressive marketing, and I’m a big believer in aggressive marketing – simply for the you know the reason of testing! We should be listening more than we’re speaking, but in order to find out what is working, and what people want from us.
For the value that we can provide for people, we really have to test, and the only way to do this is to be aggressive. It means putting out as much content as possible, and looking at the post-creative analytics, seeing which kind of posts do well, and then doubling down on those posts.
When spending money on advertising, you wouldn’t want to put money up front and spend on things that you don’t know are necessarily going to work. This notion of testing, and being a aggressive in marketing does work, but I do agree with you that listening is a huge part of it as well.
SAMANTHA : It’s engagement with all of the social media platforms. We love it when a post goes on, and people engage with it.
I help my mums every single day, they ask and we respond telling them where they can get the information. I do blogs, I did one the other day about what to do for locked down birthdays, because we’re getting so many requests. My website hits have gone through the roof, because I’ve directed them back to the website, back to the blog about lockdown. It’s all about engagement and helping.
I’ve never run any advertising!
I’ve never ever made a cold call for a sale.
All of the leads come to my inbox through word of mouth.
This is because I’ve helped people for so many years that they now come to me.
That’s what you’ve got to create within these communities.
They’ve got to be communities of help, support and putting them first.
Then you will reap the rewards later.
REBECCA : Mine’s exactly the same. I don’t have to do any advertising, as mine’s all referrals & word of mouth. Because I’m just helping people, and a lot of my content is just about me. I’m not talking about my business all the time. It’s actually content that people can relate to, it’s not just blatant adverts and sales.
You have to test and look at your insights, that’s really important. Not to just put a post out there. You need to go back look and see who’s liked it, who’s commented, and to make sure you comment back and build up the engagement.
Don’t forget about the post once you put it out.
@ImTristanG : Talking about the two ears one mouth principle, that we touched on earlier, people falling into this broadcast medium across social media, is that they’re forgetting the actual description of the platforms;
Is its social media!
Going back to it;
Reiterating & echoing what Gus said earlier;
Human to human connection!
Yes we need to publish. Yes we need to put stuff out, and as an advocate for someone publishing a lot, you should only really be doing it if you can also handle the enquiries, the conversations, the arguments, and the people contesting what you’ve got to say on the various platforms.
This covers one of the previous questions that someone had about um the cross-posting or repurposing, and using the same things.
If you’re scaling your content;
You have to scale the unscalable!
This is, getting in the comments, responding to people, and I’ve got a couple of productivity hacks I’m going to drop right at the end for you all as a takeaway.
@ImTristanG : If you’re ever involved with the launch or running an event or anything like that and you want to create a massive amount of FOMO (The fear of missing out) for your event, your launch, your book, whatever it is – get in touch with MayKing by clicking on here face & connect across the socials, and she’ll certainly help you create some FOMO!
@ImTristanG : A question we had in…
So you’ve run out of space on your phone, because we all live on our phones these days, and you’ve already got all your social media apps installed, that’s great, except you’ve now only got space for ONE more app on your phone. What is that app? And why?
What’s the app, and why, that you would use, that you can’t live without.
REBECCA : At the moment it’s Clubhouse
GUS : I’m using Zoom alot on my phone at the moment
IAN : For some reason my house is like the flipping delivery hotspot. We’ve got three kids living here. They’re just getting parcels delivered all the time, and if we didn’t have the RING APP we’d never get it delivered!
EDDIE : Honestly – Google Calendar – it keeps me in line!
@ImTristanG : If you’ve seen a room on here (Clubhouse) and you want to know you’ve got it saved; Go and add it to your calendar!
ALICIA : Mine’s a bit boring actually. My family are all scattered around social media, some of them have Facebook, some of them are on Instagram, so it’s definitely gonna have to be Whatsapp, because they’re all on there!
MAYKING : In China there is one which does all of them all in one go, maybe that’s it – WeChat
ELLIOT : Asana, for obvious reasons. Helping to manage the team, and being able to work with clients.
@ImTristanG : Because I work in a content creation space, and we’re working at high speed, it’s a free app, everyone can have it, it’s provided by Google it’s for image editing, and it’s called Snapseed.
One of the reasons I use it is because I take a lot of screenshots, I’m editing, cropping, changing, blurring things out, and I can have presets for certain types of content.
For example, if I was to take a screenshot of the room, which you can do, and share to Instagram and tagging the moderators, it allows you to do loads of different tweaks to it, but the fastest part of it is having all your presets already pre-loaded, because you’re doing repeatable tasks, which is quite common in the my space.
It’s called Google Snapseed, it’s a little green leaf logo!
ELLIOT : There’s been lots of practical social media advice. The panelists also dropping lots of knowledge. We’re grabbing notes & we’ve got bits and pieces where we’ve got people taking screenshots and to make sure we’ve got all of the people who have asked questions, so when we re-purpose and post it, we can also tag them, and let them know that that’s going on across social too!

SUMBIT YOUR QUESTIONS ANYTIME
@ImTristanG : Thanks to everyone Rebecca, Gus, Samantha, Ian, Eddie, Alicia and MayKing, for jumping in. No matter whether you were here for the whole time, or a little bit, I appreciate all of you and your knowledge!
When it comes down to it we’ve all got 24 hours in a day it’s about how effectively and efficiently we use them.
I’m loving Clubhouse because it runs in the background, and it allows me to do a number of different things behind the scenes, at the same time as I’m talking into Clubhouse.
I can jump out;
I can message on Instagram;
And connect with people away from the platform.
However it works for me I have to use two mobiles now, because the productivity tips I share with people that we work with in training courses that we deliver, is look for the things that are there, that are free, and available to you already!
Before going for more tools that you might have to pay for, or might have to go and grab, that are different, most people’s phones (and if you’re on an iphone – i know you’ve got this, because you’re around here, you’ve got an iOS device)
Start using things like;
Voice to text!
It will get better the more you use it.
You can use it to write your messages. So if you jump out of a room to someone’s Instagram, you can literally write that message in a matter of seconds, or use your voice notes.
Start using your voice a lot more!
We’re inside an audio app for a reason, and it’s taking off!
In the same way, and in the same way as voice into your device, use voice out of the device too! If you’re reading things, bookmark them, turn on your speak screen (through accessibility options) with text to voice on, bookmark pages on your mobile phone, swipe down from the top, and have them read back to you!
This will also help you to understand a bit about how SEO works, because the way that good web pages are read to you, is very different to how bad web pages are read to you!
