As time goes on, technology advances and social media influencers need to stay ahead of the curve. Whether it be modifications to their cameras or a desperately needed software update, today we are going to look at a few updates that every influencer should be making this year.
Social media influencing has become a highly popular market and so keeping not just on top of your game but ahead of the curve is essential in succeeding.
Keeping On Top Of Your PC
When it comes to an influencer’s PC or laptop it is the heartbeat of their business, so keeping on top of any updates is essential.
The first thing that should be taken into account is the hardware. If you are a PC user, there have been some pretty substantial shifts in video editing software this year. There may be a need for a mighty RAM boost is to make sure your 4K rendering is happening as quickly as possible. If you are sitting at 16gb of ram or above, you need not worry, anything below, you need an update.
As previously mentioned, there will be many software updates with video editing software this year. Take notice all Mac users; the software will be optimized for macOS Catalina, so making that update will ensure things run as smoothly as possible for you.
Make Some Website Upgrades
This obviously doesn’t apply to all, but sometimes we all need a fresh lease of life injected into our website or blog.
Of course, the most important thing to any blogger is the presence of their blog. Making the blog look absolutely stunning is a sure-fire way to set you out above the rest of the bloggers in your niche. The obvious thing to remember with blogging is to find what makes you different from everybody else, and then embrace it.
Doing a little bit of research and checking out the competition will help you massively on your journey into upgrading your website.
Upgrade Your Photography Equipment
If you are quite new to the blogging or vlogging world, one of the best investments you can make is your camera.
Having the right camera for the job can set you apart from everybody else. As most influencers know, though, it isn’t just about the camera. One of the most important things you can have is the lighting. The great thing about lighting is that it doesn’t need to be expensive. Lighting is as, if not more, important than the camera. Having a properly lit subject with a half-decent camera can give you the quality that you just don’t find with badly lit photos and videos.
Another thing to consider, especially for Youtube, is shooting video in 4K. Having videos filmed and uploaded in 4K gives you an advantage over every video in your niche that doesn’t get uploaded in 4K.
Hopefully taking these few update tips on board can help send your influencer status to the next level.
