Last Saturday, the first ever Cebu Creators Day organized by Cebu Content Creators was a big success! Bloggers, vloggers, social media creators, and businesses participated in the event that was held at Robinson’s Fuente. With the theme “Content Creation for Millennials”, it became a gathering of those who are eager to step up their game and learn from the experts of content creation.
The digital content creation industry is fast-paced and ever-changing. If you are a content creator or aspiring to be one, it’s crucial to grow your online presence, but even that is not enough. You have to consistently be on top of everything so that you won’t be left behind by the trends that have a big potential to level-up your contents.
During the event, five speakers from different niches shared so much insight to the audience. These speakers are among the best in their chosen field of content creation so they are certainly credible sources of information.
CJ Estrada of Four-Eyed Laagan demonstrated some essential techniques about vlogging-on-the-go or creating videos using a smartphone. It just goes to show that better vlogging can also be done even when your only gadget is your smartphone. He shared, “Just be confident. It takes time, but just practice and practice until you get there.”
Jullian Sibi of Utterly Random Techie, who spoke about the realities of being a Cebu Tech Blogger, told the audience to “be passionate about tech blogging or in any endeavor you’re pursuing.” True enough! There are only a few tech bloggers in Cebu and if you decide to be one, do your best to be updated because it’s not all fun and games. There’s also work to do.
Issa Perez of Issaplease spoke about maximizing social media for creative outlets. Millennials have dominated the internet, there’s no doubt about that. Issa has since launched a podcast through Facebook live videos to talk about topics relevant to her and her followers. She stressed that there’s no need to compare yourself with other content creators. Instead, just take the best practices of others, learn from them, and focus on your own growth.
Doyzkie Buenaviaje of I Luv Cebu talked about social media good and blogging with a cause. During his talk, he shared the events he initiated, as well as his advocacies. With the aim of creating a venue for Cebu Instagrammers to meet and do something good for the community, he started Instameet a few years back, and every year was always a success. He was also leading his non-profit organization called iLearners Inc. which is dedicated to supporting, enriching, and enhancing the learning experience of students in the rural areas.
Rome Nicolas of Basta Bisaya and GBG Cebu shared about how content creators can help businesses. He talked about how businesses should be where their target market is. To sum up, content creators can help businesses in three ways: raising awareness, selling products, and writing reviews.
There’s still so much to learn about content creation so stay tuned for the next Cebu Creators Day and other events. We aim to make every event better for you each time. Cebu Content Creators would also like to thank Google Business Group – Cebu for co-organizing this event with us, and Robinson’s Fuente for being our venue partner.
