How To Be A Consistent Content Creator

Being consistent is difficult (and this is coming from someone who struggles with being consistent on a regular basis). However, there is a way to create content and make it simpler to be consistent.


I've implemented some things recently to help me stay consistent because I do this blog, YouTube, and social media + the business. SO creating content can actually a lot, BUT I have found some ways to make is simpler.


Let's get into it.



Organize your ideas

For most of my content on YouTube and the blog, I keep a list of ideas inside notebooks. That way when it is time to create, I have something to pull from and I just add to the list as the ideas come. For social media, I create a content calendar that has the topics and themes that I want to do for the month and that usually makes a huge difference when it comes to creating the content.



Break up the process

Trying to get everything done at once is overwhelming and will make it hard for you to do it consistently. Instead break up your process into steps so that you don't feel overwhelmed and often this will help you get things done quicker. For example: If you are trying to create a YouTube video, bulk record in one sitting. Then, on another day do the editing. Then on another day make thumbnails and work on SEO. Then, you can schedule or make promotional content on another day. If you do all this at once, it'll feel like a lot, but tasked on different days can make it easier on the mind.






Work on your mindset

Stop overthinking it. Sometimes the biggest problem is that we are thinking about the work so much and psyching ourselves out. Consistency is key, but not overworking so give yourself grace and remember that content creation is about letting your creative side out.






Plan things out... then practice discipline

If you're reading this... you're struggling with consistency. A lot of people don't like this, but a big reason most of us aren't consistent is simply discipline. You aren't making your work ethic match your goals. After reading these tips, IMPLEMENT them, and stick to it. No excuses. You are responsible for whether or not shit gets done.




Content calendars, sweetheart

Content Calendars make the content creation soooo much easier. You know what to plug in because it's already there. I create content calendars for all my clients which makes it easier for both me and my team to create content because there's not need to "come up with ideas" in the moment because the content calendar spells it all out.




Catch... but relax

I write multiple blog posts at once, record multiple videos at once, etc. However if I don't record five videos... that's okay. I can record only 3, but they got done and I feel good about that. Don't stress yourself trying to make a month's worth of content. Maybe you only have the energy for a week. That's okay too.




Repurpose strategically

Repurposing content saves lives. You could say the same thing a million times in different ways (I say this because.. that's pretty much exactly what I do). Take content that your audience responded to, spice it up a little bit, and boom. You're done.




Talk what you know and how you are

THIS is the biggest change I made with social media content creation that made my content creation process much easier. Your brand should be something you can talk about all day. So do that, but make it social media. Share what you know and talk how you talk so that you don't feel forced into "professionalism" which makes creating content so much harder. Just be yourself and let your tribe come to you.




If none of these things will help and you just cannot bring yourself to do any of it... consider hiring help. If you're wanting to create content for your social media but don't have the energy to do so, book a discovery call with us and let's see if CherishingfloMedia is a good help for you!!
