A trick to get dozens of great Content Ideas
One of the best resources to find Content Ideas regarding your niche is Books. Many books share practical tips depending on the niche you belong to, so you could get a lot of inspiration.
Of course, you need time to read books, and you just need to select the correct books that will give the help you are asking for.
But what if I told you there is a workaround?
Here’s what you could do:
Visit Amazon or any other online place that sells books (Amazon works best here)
Look for various books in the niche you belong
Open the preview and head to the Table of Contents
Check from there the headings: tons of curated ideas to create content about and share it with your followers.
And since you are not reading the whole chapter, you are not copying the content – you just create your own. So there is authenticity and content regarding subjects that are so good, that authors and writers chose to include them in their publications!
Let me know your thoughts!
And share with us any other relevant tips you may have!
This is why Content Calendar doesn’t seem to work for you
One issue when we create our Content Calendar (or when we get ideas or advice on what to include in our Calendar) is the lack of flow.
This means the ideas are around things that cannot be replicated in the upcoming weeks. For example, I read a lot of people suggesting telling your story, introducing your employees, sharing a secret or a best practice, etc.
Although all these are important and even a must-have, you cannot write these things every couple of weeks. So you may have content for one month, but what content will you have for the next one?
What works best, is coming up with a system that has the same categories but the content can be replicated.
Here’s what I mean:
If let’s say, you are posting content 5 days per week, you could have 5 main categories:
Then, you create a piece of content that falls under each of these categories.
On day one you share a funny gif/meme/story
On day two, a tip or a piece of advice coming from your niche
On day three, you may choose to share content coming from your community
On day four you answer some commonly asked questions or even host a Q&A session
On day five you share quotes, you ask general yet relevant questions, you promote inspiration, etc
Doing so, allows you to mix the content you produce and creates a flow since it’s a strategy that can be replicated. No more one-off piece of content for one month, and staring at a blank page the next month. You have the structure and you support it with fresh material.
You will only need to come up with tailored categories. In order to find them, check the analytics/insights of your account over the last months. Which types worked best? Start creating the categories from there. Test it for some weeks until you know you can follow the creation process.
Hope this can help you!
How to make Facebook suggest your page/group
One of the membership questions this group has before you get approved is how you found it.
I don’t know if everyone is honest about it, but the most common answer I get is that Facebook suggests this group to you.
And this is really something interesting since I don’t (heavily) promote it, nor my Content Creation Tips page. Nevertheless, I get dozens of requests per day from #ContentCreators around the world.
Have you ever wondered how Facebook suggests groups to our targeted audience?
It’s because of the relevant content we create.
Almost every post here is about #ContentCreation, which works as an SEO keyword. Facebook knows when its users are Content Creators or when they look for help regarding how to produce content. And this is how it suggests relevant groups/pages to each user.
So how do you make Facebook suggest your Page/Group to people who will be interested?
Have a proper name. If this group was called Maria Papadouri, it wouldn’t make any sense if you didn’t know me. But the name is specific and right to the point: it’s about creating content for Social Media. Specific, targeted, to the point.
Use the keywords in the description
Use the keywords in the posts you create
Do these even if the name of the page is your brand’s name and you can’t give it a different name to rank as keywords. If you still use keywords in the content, you still get SEO juice.
I hope this makes sense. Let me know your thoughts!
