TOPGOLF AND TEAMBUILDING - FUN!!!!

With the Socially Powerful family growing bigger every day, we thought it was time to get to know one another and celebrate one of our own – Nikol Chrenkova, a professional golf player. With a dose of healthy (and not-so-healthy) competition we headed over to Top Golf to learn from a pro and separate the powerful from the pretenders.

First up, we needed to decide the most important thing – who was in each team. With help from a lovely (and patient) lady, the teams were decided…:

  1. Captain: Majid – Natasha, Nick, Paula, and James.

  2. Captain: Neil – Nikol, Coralie, Bran and Chrissie.

… and, after a motivating pep-talk from James, “You’d better f*cking win”, and the expert guidance of Nikol, “You need to pose to make it look good,” the Socially Powerful Open began.

At this point I would love to say that we all aced every shot and did Nikol’s teachings proud – unfortunately, I would be lying. Playing golf turned out to be just as Nikol stated; nerve-wracking, exciting, inconsistent, needing patience and SOCIAL!

Throughout the day we learnt a lot about each other, bonding over our mutual uselessness (none of us will ever be professional golfers - sorry Nikol!) and learning that, although we are Socially Powerful, our skill-set doesn’t necessarily translate over to Top Golf!

We tried our best, and at the end of the day the best team (I may be slightly biased) won.

NEVER WORK A 9 TO 5, FOLLOW YOUR PASSION

The conventional 9 to 5 job, is not the only option. You can do anything. Anyone can be an entrepreneur and live out their dreams. Now, more than ever, you can take the chance to really live the life you want to live and do what you’ve always wanted to. You don’t have to take the same route as everyone else, you don’t have to go to University to get the job you want. Now, you can just go and do it. Believe in yourself and GO FOR IT!

Today the vlog starts out in South London. We’re on set filming with Anto Sharp, a well-known comedy influencer, with a huge following on Facebook and Kelly Jean, a large gaming influencer on Twitch and Facebook. We're filming for an upcoming campaign we have with one of our major clients.

We had some time to sit down with Anto whilst on set to learn more about him as a person and the man behind the influencer. It was insightful and great to spend time with these guys, to lift the lid on who they are as people.

The day ends as a huge success, but we will be back for the second day of filming, bright and early tomorrow.

WHY DO WE VLOG?!

Why do we vlog? Why are you vlogging? These are questions we always get asked.

We’re a marketing agency, we’re building a company and we’re on an entrepreneurial journey…. but mostly, we’re doing it be practitioners. To practice what we preach and put our money where our mouth is. To really understand social media, you need to be amongst it and living it daily. How can we stand in front of some of the biggest brands in the world but not understand what we are talking about?

Today’s vlog we are in London, casting for a video that we are creating for one of the major gaming companies globally. It’s a new client, a new opportunity and the potential to show to the brand that what we do works and delivers real results. Tass and Majid head to the casting, lead by our Director Craig, to meet the potential cast who will be starring in the video.

The difficulty with creating content for social, is that it needs to be fit for platform, it needs to be raw, easily consumable and exciting. Let’s see if we can pull it off ;)

TRAVELLING TO BANGKOK, THAILAND

In today’s vlog, Tass is travelling to Bangkok, Thailand with his girlfriend for a much-needed holiday, we decide to take you on the journey and show you some of the behind the scenes. After travelling all over the world with our clients and on Business Development, Tass embarks on for some relaxation and downtime, this time without camera man Nick, how will he survive :')

At the same time, Socially Powerful are in the middle of a lot of major projects and recruiting for new employees. As a start-up business, we need to be smart with where we invest our money and who we invest our money in. With no investment or venture capitalist backing, every penny counts and we need to deploy it in the most effective way possible. 

Arriving in Bangkok you really feel the pace of the city, the vibe of the people and the culture of the communities in the city, which changes from day to night.

DRONE RACING - THE NEW FORMULA ONE

In today’s vlog, we decided to take the focus away from business and entrepreneurship, we wanted to show our personalities and who we are as people. Whilst we’re still going to be vlogging our trips and business work, we’re also going to start sharing what we get up to as a company outside of the office. First stop, we decided to head to the Drone World Championship at Alexandra Palace in London. 

We use drones a lot in all our productions, whether it be our vlogs or branded content. We wanted to experience something we’d never been to and had no preconceptions of and what we experienced, was something like we’d never experienced before. It genuinely was incredible, the people, the atmosphere and the skill of the guys flying the drones was insane. The market for this concept is huge, the only thing like it is Formula One – if it can get to that stage, then wow.

Not to spoil the results of the competition or any of the races, we’ve blurred out and bleeped out us talking about it. If you’re interested, they are playing the legs of the Championships on TV from next week.

FACEBOOK VIDEO VS YOUTUBE VIDEO

We’re with Julius Dein in London filming a prank for one of our clients. We have an interesting chat about Facebook video vs YouTube video. Understanding the audience and how you can capture the attention of people in split seconds as they scroll through their newsfeed. We discuss the differences between a Facebook view and a YouTube view, I’m sure you’ll all know about the continuous discussion around how Facebook counts a view :P

We take you through the day, with our behind the scenes vlog of what goes on! If you haven’t checked out any of Julius’ content, make sure you do, he’s recently been ranked as one of the top Instagram Accounts globally leading their industry and has over 8.5 million fans on Facebook.

The next video will reveal the prank and what we got up to ;)

 

CAN YOU LEARN HOW TO BECOME AN INFLUENCER?!

We’re back with a vlog in Barcelona with Mariano Di Viao and Xenia Tchoumitcheva, staying at the W Hotel. We had a pretty frustrating stay at the W Hotel, anything that could go wrong, went wrong. Blocked cards, no internet and unhelpful staff!

Barcelona is a great city, there is so much to see, spectacular architecture, history and culture. We had an action packed first day with photoshoots all over the city with Xenia during the day…. then as night rolled we headed out with Mariano around Barcelona for a photoshoot under the city lights.

All the preparation is complete; the hard work is done and tomorrow we are ready for the product launch. Lots of stress and little sleep for the past few weeks, is now FINALLY worth it.

An interesting topic arises with Xenia; can you learn how to be an influencer? Can you copy what everyone else is doing? How far will that take you in terms of growing your audience and own brand? Share your opinions below.
