This post is inspired me to do because lately, I have seen some of my fellow bloggers are not aware and some of their content were copy/paste from another blog and photos uploaded on Instagram that was from Pinterest.
So, if you are an aspiring blogger and influencer you are on the right blog. Just keep reading.
3 Things Do’s and Don’ts For Newbie Bloggers and Influencers
1) Copy and Paste
Use your knowledge and do some research. Rephrase the words instead. If you want to feature recognizing quotes or sentences use the following words “according to” or “Based on” it’s an act that you want to take credit to the right owner.
Copy and paste are for the weary. If you are planning to do so, you are plagiarizing the content from another blogger. It’s not a good idea to copy a sentence from another blogger and paste and use it to your Instagram Caption. Read the Do’s over and start to do it.
2) Copyright Infringement
Be creative when it comes to taking shots of your products. If you don’t have skills as much as a photographer, take a course, or a workshop it would be a good investment if you are planning to be a blogger and influencer.
“I don’t have any professional cameras etc.,” that is not an excuse you can use a smartphone and a lot of app as a tool to get your photos outstanding. My tip is to look for some inspiration and practice every day, taking a shot of your plants, makeup, and any other things is a good practice. Remember, consistency is the key 🙂
Sometimes we love saving a satisfying picture from Pinterest, it’s the best platform you can find a good photo that almost perfect. So, you saved, edited, and uploaded the photo to your Instagram and claimed it to be yours. That’s not a good idea! It’s Copyright Infringement and as far as I know, you could be sued by the owner of the photo you’ve taken.
When sharing valuable content, make sure that your audience will learn from it from what you share. It’s better to use your experience as an example and lastly, BE YOURSELF when talking to your audience they know if you are not. Talk to your audience the way you talk in your actual life.
Not being yourself! Let’s say that when you are talking to your audience for not being sincere about what you are saying.
