Travel with Karla on TV!
As a blogger, I often feel that I’m a one man team. From taking pictures, editing, to making blogs and vlogs, I do everything for myself. Last May 2019, I was given a chance to be a part of a tour that will feature the culture and tradition of Muslims. This time, GMA Reel Time produced a short documentary about our experience in Quiapo Muslim Town. Watch these videos from GMA Public Affairs YouTube Channel.
Behind the Scene Experience
The early bird catches worm. I went there an hour earlier than the call time because I really don’t want to be late. It take around three hours to travel from Cavite to Quiapo. Since I’m early, the team gave me one of the lapel microphones. This means that I get more exposure! LOL!
Networking is not collecting contacts. Networking is about planting relationships. I signed up for this not only to experience the tour but also to meet people from various walks of life. I made sure to give out calling cards and build relationships with the group.
When you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I love how the director, script writer, and video editor created the documentary. I think it’s well-planned. This is one of my takeaways. Usually, when I vlog, I just record anything without a concept in my mind. I realized that I really need to make a plan before producing a vlog. Up until now, I’m still not yet done with my vlog about Muslim Town. LOL. Just read my blog first! HAHA!
Stick to your brand. While the documentary is airing, I got some messages from fans/followers saying that they recognized me right away because I’m wearing a Travel with Karla shirt.
