Podcast 9: How I Save Time Creating Content
How is it that some days I feel like there are exactly 35.25 hours in the day while other days I’m pretty sure there were 5? They say time is linear, but I’m starting to wonder if that’s true. As business owners and brand builders its our job to do All. The. Things. Which often means that there literally aren’t enough hours in the day. But what I’m going to share with you today will hopefully help you find some more time in the day. This is how I save time Creating Content.

Here’s what I know to be true about creating content, quality is king. Consistency is queen. And the look of your content needs to match your brand across all channels so that people easily know it’s coming from you. You can save time creating content, but make sure that you are being intentional with your content too. Creating for the sake of creating isn’t serving anyone and it won’t be pushing the needle for your business either. Instead, focus on high-quality content that matters to your audience. Post to the channels you see growth on and/or that you enjoy being on. And don’t feel like you have to be everywhere at once. Start with one channel (blogging or podcasting – maybe not both) and spend your time there until you feel like you have the space to add in another channel.
