Creating content is hard work and it can be frustrating to try to come up with ideas. Content is important in creating an audience and building a brand.
Here are five tips to never run out of content.
1. EMBRACE THE SILENCE AROUND YOU.
Turn off all outside noises. Think about what kind of things you enjoy reading, watching, and listening to daily. Silence allows your brain to expand, therefore helping you find new ideas.
2. FIND A LESSON IN EVERYTHING.
Be aware of the little things that happen during your day. Learn something valuable from them and share it with your audience.
For example, someone cuts you in line. Instead of getting mad, you let it go. Then use this example as a valuable life lesson in patience and selflessness for your audience.
3. ASK YOUR AUDIENCE.
Stuck on what content to create? Ask your audience! You can run a poll, or use the questions feature on Instagram.
Find out what content your audience likes and what they’d like to see more of from you.
4. WRITE DOWN YOUR IDEAS.
Whenever you get an idea, jot it down and then come back to your list when you’re creating content. Seriously, every idea. No matter how silly it may seem in the moment.
5. SCROLL LESS.
Sometimes spending less time on social media is better for creating your own content.
Not only are you spending less time looking at other’s content, but by doing this you’ll develop your own voice rather than being heavily influenced by others.
