Guest Article:

** Note: I’m sharing this article from one of my Live Big Mastermind clients, Barbara Ingrassia with Manage Copyright, because it’s very timely and important for you to know when shooting family fun photos and videos this summer.

Ah Summer!  Time for picnics, reunions, family gatherings in the back yard, weddings, anniversary parties, birthday parties, travel. Time for creating special memories. Shooting pictures, videos, etc.

And we want to share those with others, don’t we? It’s so easy. There’s Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

You might be:

  • Taking a Group Photo
  • Scanning the people attending the event
  • Recording dancing at a wedding
  • Recording Uncle Charley making funny faces
  • Singing “Happy Birthday”
  • Recording remarks by the “Guests of Honor”
  • Other?

Here are some tips to keep in mind for safely sharing those special memories:

✓ Don’t share what you wouldn’t want your grandparents (or boss or future boss) to see. Once it’s out there, it’s out there.
✓ Make sure everyone is onboard with sharing on social media.
✓ Not everyone likes to be “out there.” Respect their privacy. Don’t “tag” without their OK.

(Another thing about sharing: The person who takes the photo/shoots the video owns the copyrights to those, but when you post to social media, you are granting the platform a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, display and distribute such Content in any and all media or distribution methods (now known or later developed). This license authorizes the platform to make your Content available to the rest of the world and to let others do the same. (You won’t be compensated.) Yup, it says that in the Terms and Conditions of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. And by using the site, you have agreed to those Terms.)

✓ Is there music playing? Even if it’s in the background and not important to the subject of the video, social media platforms have automated systems that can detect copyrighted content. Your video may be rejected or the audio suppressed. This can happen even with live video. If the automated systems don’t catch it, the copyright owner may still manually submit a DMCA take down request. The vast majority of recordings were made after 1923, so they are still protected by copyright. Bummer!
✓ BUT do go ahead and sing a boisterous and energetic “Happy Birthday To You” without fear (depending on the quality of your singing, of course. )

[On June 30, 2016, the US District Court in Central CA ruled that “Happy Birthday To You” is in the public domain (out of copyright). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Birthday_to_You#cite_note-settlement2016-19]

✓ What’s in the background of your shots/videos? Take a quick look for prominent copyrighted images or trademark logos, videos, movies, etc. Consider repositioning the shot if you can without losing the moment. While this might not be as much of an issue as music, IT DEPENDS. Some rights holders can be very protective.

BUT DO CREATE THOSE SPECIAL MEMORIES. Just remember to:

✓ Keep it Fun and Keep it Legal!

Have a GREAT SUMMER!

I’ll bet you’re making at least one of these 4 social media mistakes and either pissing people off or missing out on leads and opportunities!

Listen in to my video tip today for some helpful dos and don’ts all about social media. What’s good social media etiquette online and definitely what will get you marked as a spammer and possibly unfriended or blocked!

I see so many people using social media for their crazy sales strategies that are NOT doing them any favor. Just like you don’t want to be “that guy” or “that girl” at the networking event that is shoving your card in people’s faces and then walking away… you do NOT want to be that person on social media sites. You can get a bad reputation just the same.

One of my biggest pet peeves I’ll share in the body of this blog post, then you have to watch the video for others, is:  when people tag me in posts that clearly have NOTHING to do with me and they get their post featured on my profile wall. ANNOYING to say the least!! Do not do this.

If you want my attention (or someone’s attention that you care about), you cannot do this, we will eventually BLOCK you or unfriend you if you continue. Pay attention and take the time to get to know me, engage with me and then ask me to support you if that’s what your goal is. But don’t force me to support you by tagging me. ARGH!!

Join my email newsletter so you never miss out on this kind of content to help you start up, grow, market and monetize your business ever again! Sign up here now.

Listen in to learn more about “Social Media Etiquette for Your Business” – the pros and cons, dos and don’ts. Go listen in!

Young Woman Sitting in Front of a Computer and LaughingI see hundreds of business owners wasting hours of time each week on social media that I just want to cut to the chase.

If you’re looking to get paying clients from your efforts on social media websites and also get more people signed up on your email newsletter or to your website from your efforts on social media websites then these are:

The Top 8 “Productive” Things to Do On Social Media for Business

  1. Snap – Snap photos of yourself, family, kids, vacation, pet and wherever you go and then upload them so your followers and friends can get to know you better.
  2. Share – Share other people’s posts, pictures, promotions or quotes to give them social credit and you a good reputation for being generous and supportive online.
  3. Educate – Educate your followers and friends on things you are an expert in. It could be business related or any fun facts, information and more. They will look to you as more of an expert and refer you business too if you share really good stuff!
  4. Proclaim – Proclaim fun new things going on with you in your life, or your goals in business even and others will hold you accountable but also cheer you on.
  5. Engage – Comment on as many other posts you can that are relevant. For business topics, share your expertise, give free advice, resources and more; don’t hold back and people will take notice and refer you more or recommend you to their friends because you show so much generosity.
  6. Connect – Connect on a deeper level with as many people as you can also. Don’t just like their page or add them as a friend or connection, send them a private message, find out more about them and what they do.
  7. Converse – Take the online conversation to the next level. Suggest talking on the phone or meeting in person if you’re local to build a stronger relationship, become referral sources, collaborate or even do business.
  8. Have fun – Have fun with it but don’t waste too much time if you’re in business, get to the heart of the connection, take it to a conversation and see if or how you can help each other. Have fun by sharing fun images, quotes or things that really express your personality too!

It can be this simple.

Yet most entrepreneurs are just posting and maybe commenting on things….you’re not engaging others to your fullest extent. That is the big mistake.
