Want to showcase your neat talent or hobby in the public eye? The internet is a hard place to stand out, and it can be ruthless sometimes. Here are five things to keep in mind as you showcase your abilities.
Popularity Comes and Goes with Trends
Popularity and trends go hand in hand. When trends change, you need to change in order to keep up with popular demand. There are times when you will thrive on your online platform.

This is a tried and true way of staying at the forefront of people’s vision and staying on top of the talents and hobbies that clutter the internet.
Reputations are important when it comes to internet presence. They can either hurt your online presence tremendously or help you succeed. Think of your internet platform space as a business. You can use the same model as businesses to manage your online reputation in order to keep it positive and increasing. Businesses keep moot on sensitive topics, make disclaimers about their methods and beliefs, and try to keep a positive vibe throughout their existence. You can apply these same principles to your online platform to help you stay reputable and looking good in the eyes of your audience.
Make Your Talent or Hobby Different
It is likely that someone has the same talents and hobbies as you. Since this is true, you need to keep in mind that variations of the same talents and hobbies are what keeps audiences interested. Ask yourself, “How can I make my talent stand out among all the other people on the internet?” While this might sound like a daunting thing to do, it isn’t hard to come up with at least one thing that is different about your talent or hobby. Once you found your personal spin, showcase it on your social media outlets and web pages.
Upload and Post Regularly
Whether you are an online video maker or a blogger, if you are serious about showcasing your talents online then make sure you upload and post regularly. The key is to keep your audience interested and engaged in order to increase your audience numbers. Once you have established your online presence, make yourself a schedule for how often you will upload/post. Then announce this schedule to your audience. This will keep you accountable and encourage your audience to “tune in” to your content religiously.
Engage with Your Audience
Just as you, the owner of the talents or hobby, like to know that people see you, so your audience wants to know that you see and hear them. Engaging with your audience through comments, emails, and inbox messaging is a great way to keep your audience happy. This is also a good way to receive valuable feedback about what to showcase next.
