In this newsletter series, we’re discussing key ideas for creating content. In the last newsletter, we discussed how to collaborate on blog ideas with team members.
Sometimes, you may not be able to brainstorm with others, and you need a technique to easily brainstorm yourself!
One of my favorite tools for collecting my ideas is through using the voice memo feature on my smartphone.
In fact… 99% of my blogs start with a voice memo.
I might get an idea while I’m on my way from one meeting to the next, or after having an interesting conversation with a client.
I “brain dump” my own ideas into a voice memo. That voice memo then gets transcribed by an automated system or team member, and then it gets turned into a blog.
How to do this? Just start talking… You’ll get more and more organized with your ideas as you practice. Get it transcribed using Rev.com if you need to, or have an intern transcribe it. Or, just transcribe it on your own.
Another alternative is to record a video blog. You could record a video on your cell phone or film a Facebook Live video. Then, have your video content transcribed into a blog for your website.
If sitting down in front of a blank screen with cursor flashing in front of your eyes is too intimidating, find alternatives like these. It’s all about figuring out the best way you operate to meet your content creation goals.
