How To Never Run Out Of Content Ideas
Are you struggling with content creation? Maybe you have a business and you want to create more content, videos, posts, but you’re struggling to come up with ideas and be consistent.
In this post I’m going to share my top tips to come up with content ideas and how to consistently post that for your fans and audience. So my first tip when it comes to content creation is actually finding ideas to create content on.
You know that’s one of the biggest issues a lot of my clients and a lot of my students have. You understand you need to create content, content is what’s going to attract your dream customer to you.
You’re going to write a post on your blog or a make a YouTube video and that’s what’s going to start getting people searching for that information so then I can present my solution, my product or my service to that person.
But a lot of people want to know how do you come up with the ideas? Don’t worry, here are some powerful ways you can find content ideas quickly.
The Power Of YouTube Comments
The first thing is if you’re already creating YouTube videos look at the comments you’re getting on your YouTube videos. You know a lot of times you’ll have followers or subscribers or people watching that are asking for more help.
They’ll say things like “hey, you know that was a great video but how exactly do you XYZ” or “how can I do this better” and what you want to do is start creating videos and content around those comments.
So once you get questions on your videos start creating videos on those topics. This is going to be a great way that you can create videos that your subscribers are already asking for.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is they create videos, they create content that no one’s actually searching for. So they get frustrated wondering why no one is watching their videos or why no one is taking action on what they’re posting. So again, look at your YouTube comments.
Now if you don’t have a lot of followers yet on YouTube or a lot of subscribers or maybe you’re not getting many comments, another thing you can do is go to a competitor’s page.
Someone else on YouTube is probably doing similar videos to you, look at their comments. If they have a lot more subscribers they’re probably getting a lot more comments and you can see what people are struggling with and use that as topics for your videos or blogs.
The Power Of Quora
Another way you can do this is go to Quora.com and this is a question-and-answer website. People are asking questions and you can actually see what people are wanting to know more information about.
When you go to Quora and you can type in at the top a topic like health and fitness, how to lose weight, how to make more money or how to improve my relationships, whatever niche you’re actually in.
When you do that you’re going to see questions that people are actually asking and if you see ones with a lot of responses chances are that’s a very popular question.
If you do videos on those topics you’re going to be able to ensure that you’re coming up with endless content ideas to put out for your niche, for your following and for your subscribers.
Now another way to do this is you can actually go to Facebook groups. If you go to Facebook and you go to a group that’s in your niche, around the topic that you’re actually promoting or marketing on you can see what people are posting in those Facebook groups.
See what type of questions people are asking, see what type of information they’re wanting help on and when you create videos around those topics you’re going to know that the content is relevant to your market.
Ok so these are some powerful ways you can start to generate content ideas so when you go out there you’ll know how to quickly come up with content ideas to do videos and blogs.
Efficient Content Creation
My next tip is how to actually create content in a way that’s quick, easy and you can hold yourself accountable. I think the number one issue a lot of my subscribers, a lot of my followers have is how do I get myself to stay consistent.
That’s one of the biggest things is getting yourself to continually take action even when you may not be getting the exact results you want. One of the best ways to overcome this is it’s something called “batching.”
Now what batching actually means is rather than doing a video or a blog every single day where life can get in the way or maybe you sleep in one day or yeah I’m working and you can’t really get to it, what you do instead is you batch a lot of content creation all in one sitting.
Essentially what that means is let’s say you’re shooting YouTube videos. Rather than doing a YouTube video a day, you sit down and record six or seven videos in a single sitting.
By doing that you’re allowing yourself to stay in that creative flow, stay in that creative content creation mode and pump out as much content as possible.
Automating Content Delivery
My last tip after you’ve come up with the ideas, after you’ve actually batched creation, whether it’s writing out all your posts for the next two weeks or you’ve recorded five to six videos on YouTube in one day. Now you have the next few weeks content done so you’re ahead.
You always want to be ahead and now that you’ve batched everything the last step is scheduling and automation. You want to schedule your posts, videos or social media.
With Instagram there’s an app called plan Ally which is absolutely incredible, you can actually schedule your Instagram posts a month or more in advance which is absolutely incredible.
You can schedule YouTube videos, when you go to upload a YouTube video rather than making it public you can actually schedule a time then it will automatically upload and post to your account saving you massive time.
Facebook, if you’re going on a Facebook page you can schedule when you want those posts to go out. So again this is keeping you accountable. Rather than having to remember it you can actually schedule all this so you make sure that you’re staying consistent.
It’s all done ahead of time and then you’re producing content that you know you’re audience actually wants.
