When you have a story to tell the world, social media provides you with the platform to tell your story.
Here is Bryanna’s story.
Me: What inspired you to start participating in social media?
Bryanna: We really want to spread our story and encourage other families to get out and travel more. Travel is such a great way to deepen your family bond! We figured there was no better way then Social Media to do that! When they see our daily posts it helps people feel like they are right along with us on our adventures. And helps them plan their family trips.
Me: What is the best opportunity that you have received since you started participating in social media?
The best opportunities have been the people that we have met through social media. Social media really makes the world feel so small since it is so easy to “meet” and stay in touch with people all over the world.
Our family has also been fortunate enough to do activities for “free” which has been amazing! We have been able to pet and feed dolphins, snorkel in the Gulf of Mexico, Parasail, and so much more!
Me: What is the biggest challenge of having a voice on social media and how do you handle it?
Bryanna: The biggest challenge has been making sure we are providing our followers all of the information that they want. It is a day to day job and having relevant and good content takes time and focus.
Me: Any suggestions about what tech or social trends we need to be watching?
Bryanna: Social trends are always changing. The best thing to do is to stay consistent on the platforms that are working for you. And to stay aware of new trends but know that not everything will be the next Facebook so don’t drop what is working for you. Instead feel out the new ones and if one feels right for you and your followers then give it a go.
Me: How has being on Social Media changed your life?
Bryanna: Social Media is an amazing way to reach people all over the world. Following other social media accounts has encouraged us to make big life changes! In May 2014 we sold our house and everything in it so that we could live and travel in our RV full-time with our 4 kids and 2 dogs. Social Media has allowed us to stay in touch with friends from home and new friends we have made on the road. While also allowing us to encourage and show other families how awesome travel is and how it can be used to deepen your family bond!
