“Do your research.”
I wasn’t sure if I was going to have a Coaches Go Social show this week.
With everything going on in our country right now, I wasn’t sure what to do.
But I was reminded why I do what I do: I want to be a resource for you!
Whatever you are feeling right now, I encourage you to research and learn at this moment.
My guest this week, Mike Allton, the #BloggingBrute, shares tips around content creation and how to be a better blogger for your business. Most importantly, he provides great resources, especially this week. He wrote a vulnerable piece about how he is approaching social media during this crisis.
What I love about this piece is that Mike describes in detail the choices he’s making right now and why. Then he gives the reader space to make their own decisions about how to approach their content during this time.
This post falls into one of two types of content buckets Mike speaks about. This piece belongs in the bucket where Mike writes from the heart in a vulnerable way. He is honest about his mistakes and how he is making changes.
The other bucket of content Mike creates is more technical. These posts are the “how-to” posts that he provides that answer the questions his audience keeps asking.
While there is room for both buckets, Mike gives us a few tips on generating more of the technical how-to content.
First, he recommends finding blog content ideas in the questions your audience asks.
With answering questions and taking a deep dive with content like a blog post, you are really starting to help people solve a problem.
That’s why most of us went into business anyway, right?!? To help people!
To sum up what Mike is saying:
Learn the questions (For example, a question Mike answers with blog post content: How to start a blog?)
Thoughtfully answer them
Use your answers to create content
Be aware of the timing of when you share it
Blogging is one more tool in your business tool belt that can help serve your clients and expand your business!
