If you can’t wait till then, we managed to grab Amy for 5 minutes to answer some quick fire questions about her content marketing journey.
I fell in love with editing video and YouTube in 2008 and that’s how it really started. Just creating content around my life and sharing it with the world. It led to a great learning experience of building community online and being consistent with content.
It’s everything. I’m a teacher and my customers are the students. When marketing can sound so ugly or hard to small businesses, I want to give them an experience that not only keeps it from being outsourced but a fun and exciting aspect of the business.
I have a 3 day per week video show on YouTube and a 1-2 day per week podcast. Setting time for your own business on a regular basis is critical. This is the time I spend on content creation so it can have my full attention and then I focus on my clients and customers during their scheduled time as well. Balance the tasks with calendar blocking and you’ll get it done!
It makes it possible to exist. Sure basic networking helps me grow my business as well, but there is nothing more powerful than social and search when it comes to helping your customers find you online and without content none of it would be possible. It starts a targeted conversation and helps me convert the leads who are perfect for my product.
Know your customer well. Give them a name and picture them no matter what content you’re creating. Until you do that, you’ll just be creating content for yourself and YOU are not your customer. No matter if you’re creating content for business or fun, there is always a target audience in mind and you must keep them in mind to stay consistent. AND THEN JUST START.
