Tips For Creating February Content Ahead Of Time (In A Snap!)

Creating content can be hard and takes time, but if you schedule ahead and do a few simple things, it makes it much much easier for you.

In fact, with just a few key strategies you can have a month’s worth of content created and scheduled out in very little time at all. Here are my tips for doing that, especially when it comes to creating video:

  1. Use a template. There are plenty of templates available on the tools I’ve recommended below. Use one of them and use it to guide you. Why spend ages creating a cool design, when you are not a designer? Instead, use a design that a designer has already signed off on, and edit the template. Edit just the text or photo or color. Don’t go too crazy as then you run the risk of ruining the design (sorry, but it’s true and that goes for me too!). 
  2. Create in batches. If you are going to get into a creative space that results in you creating one social video (this applies to images too), why not create two videos? or three videos? or 10-20 images? It’s much easier to create a bunch of videos in one sitting than to do them all at separate times. You have the tools open and ready to go. Keep going and do another one!
  3. Create short, snappy video for social media – it doesn’t have to be an hour long. 15-30 seconds is enough. For more advice about how to create effective 15-second videos.
  4. Create some easily consumed content. For example, quotes, tips or observational humour are great for engagement, especially on Facebook where people are just scrolling through content at a rapid pace.
  5. Use GIFs to add some personality. Whether you create your own GIFs (I’ve added tips below) or you use one of the millions of GIFs in the Giphy library, adding a GIF to a social media post, email or blog post can add humour and personality to the mix.
