3. Be unique
This is easier said than done but in order to stand out from the crowd you need to step away from the crowd and be different and the easiest way to be different is to simply be yourself.
4. Photography skills
They say a picture speaks a thousand words so let your photos do the talking for a change. Photographs are a great way to capture people’s attention.
You don’t need to have a fancy DSLR camera to take great pictures, you just need to have an eye detail.
5. Use of social media
The more you put into social media the more you’ll get out of it.
It’s much better to have one strong social media channel and update it regularly and chat to your audience consistently.
A collaborative blog can still be very personal but you have the advantage of multiple voices and more time, more resources and more ideas to create something bigger and better than you could ever do alone.
