Time to get started! This lesson starts with a Content Planning Questionnaire that gets your juices flowing regarding exactly what you want to do with your content.
Learn the basics of content calendars, how to use them and why they are important. In this lesson, you get the Content Calendar template that forms the basis for this course. Download your calendar then get started on filling in some basic information.
Now that you calendar is rocking by adding in your base layer, it's time to start exploring blog post ideas. Learn how to mindmap so you'll never run out of ideas again, no matter what you blog about. This lesson includes a handout of trigger words to jumpstart your mindmapping, a video to watch mindmapping in action and an assignment.
This lesson continues you on the path to generating blog ideas, but this time with handouts for quick, easy ideas. This lesson includes two handouts and an assignment. At the end of this lesson, you'll actually have your blog posts planned out in your calendar for at least a MONTH! Hooray for milestones!
Your content calendar is now bursting with blog post ideas all planned out! Now it's time to focus on content for Facebook and Twitter. After this lesson and the next, you'll have your entire calendar filled out for at least a month's worth of bloggy goodness! In this lesson, you receive a killer five-page handout with 23 ideas for Facebook and Twitter content. I even created a little chart comparing the two platforms. Sweet!
Why you should promote yourself (besides getting more traffic), how to promote yourself and others so people actually listen. Just saying "click here for my latest blog post" won't cut it! This lesson includes two parts, a handout and assignment. After this lesson, you'll have yourself a FULL gold mine of content planned out for the month (or even more)!
What can you use to actually work on blog posts or even keeping ideas brewing? Evernote! This lesson gives you a run down of Evernote and how you can use it for blogging. If you get into the habit of using this app, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! This lesson includes a video and assignment.
This lesson will make it easy for you to find content to share with your social media networks (you might be doing lots of these already). You'll also bust into another tool to make your blogging life easier. I'm picky about automation tools but I can tell you this one makes me all warm and fuzzy. This lesson includes a video and assignment.
Bonus Lesson! In this lesson, I introduce one more tool to stay productive and organized as you keep churning out great content (and finding content too).
