How you create your drops will have an immense impact in how you will interact an engage with your followers.
Become a great Dropper®
Below we give you our to 10 tips to creating great audio content.
- Prepare your content in advance.
There are three ways to approach creating your Drop. If you’re drop is for your friends then just let your thoughts and observations flow. If you are creating Dropz for the general public and you have a good knowledge of the location we suggest making some notes in advance to guide your description just like you would if you were making a speech of a presentation and then let your story flow, guided by your notes. If you feel less confident then write out in advance your script. Speak it aloud and edit it to help it flow.
- Tell a story
Everyone loves a great story. Have a beginning, middle and end to your story. Keep is concise. You don’t have to tell the full 500 year history of your landmark in one Drop. You can break stories into several Dropz focusing on different topics. For example one Drop can describe your landmark’s architecture. Another can tell a historical fact. Another can describe a previous owner with another Drop, perhaps, describing how your landmark fits into the culture of the area. If your landmark hosts events keep one Drop up to date with up and coming activities (remember to delete out dated Dropz to reduce clutter) See here – How to manage your Dropz
- Create a great headline
Start each public Drop with a headline that captures your listeners attention. If you’re creating your Dropz in advance and using our WebApp to upload them then think about adding sound effects.
- Speak directly to your followers as if they are staning right in front of you.
- Add emotion to your Drop
Rehearse your content so you can deliver with confidence.
If you are adding a Drop on the fly just let it flow. First take is usually the best.
- Take your time
Let your content do the talking
