9 Ways To Create Better Content

Read on to discover our best tricks and suggestions for creating even better content with ease:

Be Authentic

Content creation is not the moment to “fake it ‘til you make it.” There is a lot of competition out there and in a crowded space, the best way to stand out is to be yourself. After all, you’re the only one of you! Trying to mimic someone else who has been successful won’t lead you to growth the way creating unique, completely original content can.

Know Your Audience

No matter whether you’re an established creator with a huge following or a micro-creator just gaining traction, don’t forget to take the time to clearly understand who you’re talking to every day! Taking into account the demographics of your audience like age, location, and interest can help you create content that lands, resonates and monetizes more effectively.

Follow Trends, But Be Cool About It

There’s a fine line between hopping on a trend (like the reg flag tweets that went around a while ago) to take advantage of some algorithm traction while putting your own spin on things vs. relentlessly copying trends without any originality. Despite the trend's popularity, trust us when we say that won’t get your content noticed.

PS: we recently heard through the creator grapevine that the new trend is actually original, not trending, sounds!

Have A Consistent Message

This is one of the hardest tips for creators to follow–because YOU see all your own content, it’s easy to get bored and want to mix things up. However, the most important thing your content can be online is identifiable as uniquely yours, which means you really need a consistent message and brand look.

Start (Or Revise!) A Planning & Batching System

We can’t say it enough: planning and batch-creating content is how you get ahead. Your time is valuable, and limited! So, you are just going to have to sit down and make a game plan, schedule your posts, and figure out how to use smaller amounts of time to create larger amounts of content. If you want to level up, grow, and make more money, that is!

Pro tip: check out large accounts you love and notice how sometimes they wear the same outfit or have the same background in content that’s posted weeks apart. That’s a creator who batches!

Use A Scheduler

This one isn’t for us, it’s for you–we swear. Anyone on social media in a professional capacity should know the essential nature of a scheduler. The continuation of the planning and batching process, schedulers allow you to pre-plan what and when you post so you can be out there creating, dreaming, traveling, and living all while your ah-mazing content is posting and making you money.

Repurpose Wisely

Repurposed content is a creator’s best friend. Evergreen content, ideas that you want to re-execute because they performed great or do-overs you want to try and redeem are all good places to start if you’re low on ideas and energy and need to tap into all the previous work you’ve done.

Don’t overdo it though! If it becomes obvious that you are recycling work out of laziness, that won’t land well with your audience.
