I can't believe we are into February already... Seriously where does the time go?
In January we made a few changes to how we will be working in 2018 and going forward. So let me explain...
Firstly, lets talk about our social media and video hosting. AerialPixls seems to have most of its success on Instagram and Facebook. These 2 social platforms are generally where we have the most interaction with "you" our audience and we want to take both plaforms to the next level. So, with that in mind Stuart has taken over our Twitter account and renamed it @orginalpixl which will compliment his own instagram acccount of the same name. instagram.com/originalpixl. Stuart has also converted our Youtube channel to https://www.youtube.com/stuartlittle This will still host our "AerialPixls" films which are now tucked away in a playlist of the same name. Stuart wants to start doing live streams and video tutorials relating to Lightroom, Photoshop, Snapseed and other IOS apps etc... And, saying as our main video hosting platform has always been Vimeo we both thought that this would be a good way to make the most of our Youtube platform and get the best of both worlds.
AerialPixls will still be using Instagram, Facebook, and we are going to start posting more of our stock collections on Pinterest as well. Stu will of course more than likely share links to new films and image collections on the other social media platforms. But they will be used for more "behind the scenes" and personal commentary than anything else...
2018 is going to be about us focusing on expanding our hyper local stock library with great imagery that includes Stills Collections, Videos, Time-lapse videos for the people and businesses of Ayrshire to use for their social media and web content. We will be inviting other photographers to join the library with their image content but before that happens we want to make sure we have a healthy range of clients using the service first of all.
We are currently in talks with a range of partners who will be supporting our new "Exploring" series that we will be working on throughout the year. So look out for the first of those videos next month. There will be of course shorter version of each video posted on Instagram. So don't forget to follow us. 😜
We will of course still be supporting new and existing clients but rather than spend vast amounts of time marketing, networking and emailing prospective clients. We want our stock library and social media content to do that for us, that way we can dedicate more time to shooting and producing new media content.
Stuart is going to be a very busy boy, because as well as updating this blog a little bit more regularly than in the past couple of years. 😜 He will also be writing on his own blog on the website that's been built to accompany his repurposed social media platforms. Go check out www.originalpixl.com .
Anyways, that's all of the updates I can share with you for now. We have of course a few more irons in the fire 🔥 as the say...
But I am sworn to secrecy for now 🙊.
