Sharing Your Real Self
Julie’s videos are short, sweet, and to the point. It’s clear she’s comfortable with being herself in front of the camera, and this makes her videos that much more relatable, fun, and easy to watch. And it shows in the amount of comments, likes, and messages she receives.
“I don’t make a big deal of my live videos. I don’t spend a ton of time doing my hair or makeup for them, but I’m just comfortable with doing my videos like that,” she says. “Other people might want to look really nice or rehearse a lot beforehand. Everybody is different when they’re being authentic. And that’s why live video features are so great. You can share yourself as honestly and authentically as you want.”
Social media platforms are a crowded place, but authenticity is becoming increasingly important if you want your voice to be heard. Live video features give people the unique opportunity to see you without the typical social media filter. It can be nerve-racking, but it shows how real and genuine you truly are.
“Social media is changing,” says Julie. “People want to see real faces, real stories, and real lives more then ever.”
