CREATE – Content Creation Made Simple
How to take an easy concept and generate written abundance
CREATE — the very word is the beginning of everything. We are all creators. But how does the word create manifest itself in the online world?
Regardless of whether you are a widget maker or a painter, boutique beer maker, craft gin producer, or children’s dance class teacher, you create things. And those things need to be sold to others that value them in order for you to thrive.
So how do we grab the attention of our best customers? We write things … articles, reports, sales pages, advertisements, social media — the list is endless, but they all start life as a word on a page.
In this day and age, we tend to use electronic devices, but the steps are much the same as our forefathers who wrote with a pen and paper.
Step 1. Form words and join sentences together that draws the perfect customer to your products or services.
Step 2. Place the advert in the local newspaper
Step 3. Sit back and wait for the telephone to ring with an order
However, it is not quite so simple these days
The Voracious Appetite of Todays Advertising
Competition is fierce. We know we are good at creating our products or delivering our service, but we are not confident that our writing skills are up to the job of actually being able to sell.
In today’s world, we have to create an unending stream of different forms of advertising in order to get our voice heard above the din of our competitors.
We have to devote time and effort to something that we don’t always understand but have to become experts in short order so that we can continue to make our products or market our services.
It’s a vicious circle
Let me help you find a simple way to collate your thoughts and turn them into a process that will multiply the efforts you put in for maximum effect.
It doesn’t need to be hard, long-winded, or complicated. Here’s an idea that works like a dream … use a template. This article is using a template — The Acronym Template. My friends JeffHerring.com and Tim Maudlin have perfected the art of the acronym template and have kindly shared their system with me.
5 Easy Steps To Content Creation
First, we have to write. We have to explain our products and services in a way that connects with the heart of your audience. You need to use words that get right to the point of their pain and address their issues.
Once we have a body of content, it is easy to split it up and spread it around, using the words as quotes, snippets, new articles, videos, podcasts, social media posts. The list is endless.
Your words want to provoke engagement; that is, people reacting to your articles and posts. If your content is helpful and can remedy an issue or suggest a product that can solve a problem, your audience will want to connect with you to find out more.
