Lessons of a Social Media Star: James Butler

James Butler
Congratulations to the second winner of the #GalaxyStyle competition, Caoimhe Hickey. Each week aspiring bloggers are battling it out for the hotly desired place as one of frockadvisor’s reporters at the Dublin Fashion Festival! If you’d like to be in with the change, come to one of our blogger workshops, being held on each Saturday of the month of July. Watch Caoimhe’s entry below:   The Galaxy blogger workshops, which are being held each Saturday of this month, are now in full swing. The second of the four events was led by none other than James Butler, full time snapchatter and influencer, who is loved by Fidelma’s across the country. For his Snapchat workshop, aspiring bloggers filled the Blue Room of the Dean Hotel to learn how best to maximise the social media app to push their blogs towards success. If you missed it, here’s what James Butler had to say about Snapchat fame:
  Share With Caution According to Butler, Ireland is one of the top users of Snapchat per capita, because we as a nation are just inherently nosey. You may feel the need to upload your whole life onto the platform but James cautions you in doing so. Snap your dinner, your nights out and your lazy days but don’t by any means feel obliged to share all the little details of your life, regardless how much everyone wants to know it! Be Yourself The best way to gain a loyal following is by being yourself. This is true for snapchat especially where there is an immediacy to posting, with no time to edit and filter, this allows you to show your true self. If you are copying what someone else is doing, people will see through it, and you’ll get tired of it. Find what’s interesting about you and use it. If you don’t know what that is yet, then keep snapping until you find what feels right. Don’t take it too seriously and have fun. Link Your Accounts James doesn’t just have a large Snapchat following – with his snaps being viewed over 30,000 times, but he also has over 40, 000 followers on Instagram too. If you want to build your fanbase on Snapchat allow your followers to cross over between platforms by letting them know about your other accounts. If they follow you on one, it’s more than likely that they will be interested in the others. Don’t feel that you must give equal attention to all your social media platforms, if there’s one you like to use more then the others, of course give that preference. James Butler
