DAY 29: Why I’m trading SnapChat accounts with Victoria Taylor || #StrubSnapSwaps
From Feb. 27 to April 16, Chris Strub will trade his Snapchat account with 50 different Snapchatters from around the globe. Add ChrisStrub on SnapChat to meet them all. During the 50 days, a portion of the proceeds from sales of Chris’s book will go to the nonprofits Chris visited during the #TeamStrub 50-state, 100-day journey. See the full list of NPOs that Chris visited here. On March 26, the nonprofit beneficiary will be Youth Emergency Services and Shelter in Des Moines, Iowa.
There a few people in the world who, just by hearing their voice, can make your entire day.
For me, one of those people is Victoria Taylor.
Spend just a few moments enjoying her Snapchat channel and you’ll immediately sense the genuine positivity and energy that are her signature traits.
But Victoria is far from just everything sugar, spice and everything nice. Get beyond her million-dollar smile and you’ll see she’s one of the leading social media minds in the business world.
Victoria was the star of a Summit Live panel, hosted by Chocolate Johnny, about using live-streaming for business, delivering genuinely valuable advice for not just the Periscope fans in the room and watching live, but for the vast majority of the world that, for one reason or another, don’t yet embrace the power of the technology.
Victoria Taylor’s selfless and simple approach to live-streaming and Snapchat makes her a role model for anyone looking to get involved with the platforms. She was tapped to present with Brian Fanzo @iSocialFanz at the recent Social Media Summit in Ireland, and by all accounts they tore the proverbial house down.
But while some broadcasters can’t get enough of the spotlight, Victoria is just as, if not more comfortable offering words of encouragement and advice both as a viewer/listener and an offline friend. Her support of the community is a big part of why the space is such a positive and friendly environment. I’ve never been outside of North America, but when I inevitably make it to the UK, I will prioritize patronizing BlendSocial clients just because of how sweet Victoria has always been to me.
It makes my day to simply get a Snap from Victoria Taylor; to know that she agreed to take over my account for a day is truly wonderful.
World, meet Victoria Taylor, one of the sweetest souls you’ll ever come across.
