You probably already know about the business boosting, income generating, authority elevating power that content marketing can have on your business. Which means you also probably know that for it to be effective, you have to deliver quality content and you have to do it consistently.
I’ve got 7 ways to help you create great content fast without sacrificing time, sanity, or quality.
Anyone can create content. But creating quality content that keeps your audience engaged is a whole different story.
Your customers and clients are more selective than ever before in deciding where and who to devote their time and attention to.
If you’re committed to growing your business in the long run then you know content marketing is the key, so I’ve got a few ways you can create high quality content faster than you ever thought possible.
Create Content Fast Tip #1: Have a Strategy
Our good buddy Benjamin Franklin once said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
This rings true in almost any aspect of marketing, and content is no exception.
So before you write that blog post, record that podcast, or script that video, get clear on who your target audience is, what type of content resonates with them and how they prefer to consume it.
Create Content Fast Tip #2: Plan Ahead
Ask most marketers and they’ll tell you their biggest struggle isn’t creating content, it’s consistently coming up with new topic ideas!
Taking the time to plan out a month’s worth of content might seem counterproductive.
But a content calendar takes much of the guesswork out of the creation process, ultimately allowing you to focus on churning out high quality content much more quickly.
Create Content Fast Tip #3: Keep an Idea Bank
It happens to all of us. Right as you’re about to fall asleep, you get a stellar idea for a Facebook Live video or topic for a new podcast episode.
Half the battle of content creation is coming up with ideas so I suggest having a system in place to shelf that golden nugget for a rainy day.
A free tool like Evernote stores and organizes your notes and is both web and mobile friendly.
Create Content Fast Tip #4: Focus on One
What if I told you one piece of content a week could cover most of your content needs?
That’s possible using the power of repurposing.
Focus on producing that single content piece with the intention of carving it up, and get more work done in half the time and with half the effort.
Create Content Fast Tip #5: Keep it simple
Simplifying your message keeps your content consumable and also requires less time to create.
Keep your supporting points clear, concise and easy for your audience to follow.
Create Content Fast Tip #6: Set a timer
We tend to drag our feet when we know there’s time to complete a project.
Sometimes, all it takes is a little pressure to produce some seriously valuable gems.
