Storytelling is the trend of the moment in social media circles

All the major platforms are working to provide more ways for users to add more context to their posts, and more creative, narrative-driven features.

Snapchat started the trend with Stories, which enables users to share multiple images and short clips from their day, a feature which Instagram has since copied (and Facebook is now rolling out in their main app also). 

Adding to this, Instagram is has introduced another storytelling format, giving users the opportunity to share up to ten photos and videos in a single post, which viewers can swipe through.

It’s an interesting feature to consider, adding to the storytelling options available.

Honeyweb Staff Introductions: Steven Hamilton

Steven Hamilton (Managing Director of Honeyweb Online Marketing Solutions)

Steven is an ex AFL/SANFL professional footballer, having played for the North Melbourne Kangaroos and the North Adelaide Roosters. He played in the successful North Adelaide premiership team in 1991.

Due to injuries, Steven decided to retire from professional football and concentrate on a career in design, illustration and sales.

It was during this time Steven discovered a little thing called the Internet. Instantly seeing its potential, he quickly joined Global Internet Directories as a sales agent and soon excelled, winning the “Australasian Sales Achievement Award for 1997.”

With Steven’s design background, it soon became apparent the majority of websites were being designed by computer experts and lacked the professional appearance produced in traditional media. It was time for this to change, and Steven most certainly achieved this.

Establishing his first online marketing agency in 1998, and Honeyweb PTY LTD in July 2007, Steven has nearly 20 years' experience developing successful online marketing solutions for well over 500 clients.

Steven's favourite quote: “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
