Happy Thursday, quick question for ya.... Have you had a chance yet to set up your blog, YouTube channel, and social media presence?
You should now be focused on Content Creation for a few reasons...
1. It helps you communicate your Brand Values to your audience
2. It gets your tribe engaged and active in the conversation
3. It establishes your Online Presence increasing your reach to new viewers, fans,
and potential customers.
That's what I want to focus on today - CONTENT, as it's themost important element in building your online brand.
As the saying goes guys....Content is king.Content is what makes up the internet, from everything yousee on Facebook and social media, to websites and videos.To build your online brand, you want to utilize the power ofcontent to add value and attract people.In order to successfully attract people and build your brand,you need QUALITY CONTENT. Not just any "ordinary"content will do.In order to create truly quality content, you need to understandyour niche and market, identify what people want, what theirneeds, desires, and problems are... and then focus on delivering quality content to help them.When first starting out, your content might not be as great asyou want... and you might even struggle a bit.Again, understand that it's OKAY.If you look at the content I produced even just a year ago... I've already come very far... and I'm proud of that.
Imagine if I had never started because I only could compare myself to people like Sunny Lenarduzzi or Amy Porterfield. Id still be sitting in the waiting room right now!
I recorded my first YouTube videos on a GoPro with super low light, and while I did have the sense to hire a professional video editor from the onset... I didn't know anything about titles, niches or SEO optimization. (Cause yea... that's a thing!) But again, I understood it was a PROCESS and just focused onimproving myself every day, knowing that eventually I wouldbecome better. So when it comes to creating content, just do the best you canfor now..... and regardless... JUST START! I recommend that you create a CONSISTENT content creationschedule, which at minimum I'd recommend at least once a week.
From 6 months ago to now I'm getting consistent traffic and subscribers, from Youtube with just a very small channel, and being in a position where I could turn that traffic into members of my community. The more content you can publish, the better.When you have a lot of quality content on your blog, it means that there are MORE CHANCES that people can find you.So you want to become a content-producing machine!The balance is in making sure that your content still remainsquality and that you aren't compromising that as you're trying toproduce more.And at the same time, you don't want to be a "perfectionist" withand end up spending way too much time on it... I've seen people get caught up in that too, spending days just trying to write an article or publish a blog post.If you need to, set a deadline and use a timer when creating your content to ensure that you finish in a realistic manner.You can always follow others in your niche or market to get anidea of the quality of content they're publishing and what themarket is responding to.My challenge for you in this e-mail is to UP YOUR GAME whenit comes to your content creation.Find ways you can make your content better, become faster atcreating it, and be able to publish MORE frequently.The sooner you do that, the faster you'll startgetting traffic and followers, in which case you'll be able to startprofiting from your hard work!If you need more help with your Content Creation process, make sure you drop me a line, as I do have programs that go into content creation more in-depth and can help you to get organized and get started.Keep moving forward.
Always Rooting for you,
