    0028: ft. KATNIPP - Building a 100k Art Business

    Welcome back to yet another episode of the content experience podcats. This week I'm bringing you the journey and experience of a widely loved artist and creator, aka, my boss and future sister-in-law Katnipp illustrations (Catherine Kay).

    She's always had the vision to work for herself, coming out of university she began a clothing business before moving onto to becoming a social media marketing agent at a friends business. This is when she founded Katnipp.
    Now Katnipp wasn't always pins & banners with YouTube content, it began as commission-based portrait business, operating locally at events, selling portraits and her services. In fact, she started out without even having an Instagram account! 

    When Katnipp started her Instagram journey it was agonizing, hours and hours of going through posts and hashtags to comment and like things and attempt to build genuine connections with those around her, which is surprisingly the only growth tactic that really still works on the platform...

    It was then in 2018 a cold December when Catherine began her YouTube channel and in a year has been lucky enough to hit 100k subscribers! To this day she's bringing home over 30k a year for a paycheck and investing thousands more into products and a team to help expand Katnipp into an empire. Which is where I come in... She opted to take me on as a freelancer to help package orders and develop the business. I've been there almost 6 months and it's one hell of a journey!

    0027: ft. SNOWSTOP - Is TikTok good for growth?

    Hey guys, welcome back to another podcast. We've all heard of TikTok and how it's for kids however more and more people are joining and becoming 'famous'. Well we're here to speak to someone who can help us answer the question... "Is TikTok good and useful for growth?"

    Well Introducing Stopstop, a streamer on Twitch who began his TikTok journey a few months ago. He has been consistently trying to make people laugh and posting weekly. He's had hundreds of thousands likes and views across his tik tok videos and we couldn't be happier! But he goes in depth to discuss if its helpful to use for growing your other channels such as Twitch or YouTube.

    The answer seems more difficult than it does simple. There's a lot of bits to consider when talking about how helpful it is such as your value you provide, seems tik tok has a main audience for comedy and how confident you are at portraying things on camera.

    0024: ft. Spofie - How to succeed streaming everyday!

    Welcome back, everybody! 

    It's been a short heckin' time since we've uploaded an episode. In today's episode, we're looking at someone who goes against the social 'norms' and has become a successful streamer by streaming everyday for over 2 years! Focusing on the Final Fantasy game series, Sofie, our guest, has built a following which expects her to be live every day. She even told us of a story in which she streamed the same day she has surgery! (and I thought me canceling due to a headache was bad?!).

    Streaming every day is a sure way to burn out for most, it is not a tactic I recommend for most, however, if you're a streamer of habit and like routine in your life it could be something worth trying.
    I really hope you enjoy this episode if you're after more, yo ucan hit me up on Twitter @itsthemikejames
