#2: How To Plan & Create Content
For Your Business
Create your own Content Calendar System!
Creating content consistently is one of the best things a business can do for their marketing. Yet entrepreneurs, marketing teams, and businesses of all sizes still struggle to create content on a regular basis. In all my years working with people to correct this, I've noticed two common problems.
The two biggest problems entrepreneurs and marketing teams face is that they're (1) trying to cram content creation into their schedules every week and (2) that they're having to come up with ideas on the spot.
So this week's episode dives into how you can create a Content Vault – a digital bank vault of your best ideas, a systematic approach to creating any piece of content, and how to plan and pre-schedule content creation into your calendar. You can use this system to create any type of content you want. It might even give you the nudge you need to start creating more content upgrades (freebies) and building your email list. (I'm just saying!)
And let me tell you, it’s such a weight off your shoulders to sit down at the computer and just…create. No stressing out over what topics to talk about or what format of content to create.
I've been using this system since I graduated Uni and landed my first marketing strategist position. I needed a way to remember and store my best ideas now that they were directly tied to a company's success. (No pressure or anything…Ha!) So I started with a basic spreadsheet back in the day and gradually I've upgraded to using a free project management tool called Asana.
