If I was to ask you once you have set your blog to go live, what happens to that content, you would say?
‘Well Claire they are on my blog, I don’t do anything else with them’
‘Funny you should ask this Claire, as I was struggling to find content the other day and didn’t know where to start looking!’
Well my answer to this would be ‘you need a content library’, clearly, I am not asking you to go lease a building and store every bit of content you have on your business, I am talking about using a system like Trello (there are others this is just my preferred choice)
With something like Trello you can create boards and cards with all of your content, this then making your search a lot easier.
Why I use Trello
I have been using Trello ever since I started my Business, I found it a great way to store useful information, and before I knew it I was hooked, I started to realise the possibilities were endless, and how it could streamline and make my life easier.
It was somewhere I could store my ideas, the information I used regularly so handy to have one go-to place. And I have not looked back since.
Using Trello for your Content Library
When clients ask me to help them with their content library, they have either heard of Trello and not gone any further, or they know all about it and have an account but that’s it, either way, is fine with me. I then talk with my clients and ask their main goal in creating this library of content, some want to just have their posts on social media stored on there or some just want their blogs and newsletters.
It is all down to personal preference, I happen to have my social posts on there as well as my blogs and newsletters, for me it makes it easier to find and repurpose, also If you have a business that has events on a regular event then having any related posts to that event on hand will make your life so much easier, instead of having to scroll through the lists of other posts between those events.
It is all about making your life easier, making use of the time you have during the day, sometimes having things that make us click away too many times can cause a pause in time and start procrastination! So having your content in one place and visually kept, makes looking for things quicker and easier.
No Time for that
I know I can hear you now saying, ‘seriously Claire, I have no time for coffee!’ that would upset me more knowing you can’t get your caffeine fix let alone have a shiny new content library! I feel the need to come and bring you a coffee.
But joking aside, creating a library of your amazing content is a time consuming task from scratch and I get how and why it’s not at the top of your list, but it is a real double edge sword, you need something to post quickly, but you spend an age searching for it, yet if you had the library you could find in a jiffy, but what is the solution?
In a nutshell ME!
I know I don’t blow my own trumpet often enough, but I really can help you, like with other clients that have taken me on to help them with their content and putting it into one place, I really can make a difference, I can take all your lovely content and put it into Trello, I can add your blogs and images, your social media posts add links etc
If you would like me to help you, most of my clients that I have helped with this took out a monthly retainer package, this gave them peace of mind that they had a block amount of time and did not have to worry about running over my minimum time slot.
