7 Actionable Ways to Become a Better Content Creator

Being a Content Creator is a rewarding profession. It allows you to develop and distribute content to an audience. You are also able to interact and network with people from all over the globe. Now, how do you become better at content creation as a creator? Within this blog post, you will find 7 Actionable ways to become a better Content Creator.

Create More Often

I know that this may seem obvious, but you will be surprised how many people fail to follow through with it.

Write Regularly

It may seem like I am repeating myself here. But this is a fundamental concept that you need to master if you want to become a better Content Creator. Writing regularly doesn't always have to be related to your niche, though it would be great if it did. Keeping a journal is an excellent way to get in the habit of writing every day.

Personally, I have multiple journals and binders that are full of my works. My advice to you is to keep a journal for your general thoughts and one for your niche. This way you can keep your thoughts organized. This will also encourage you to write more often. Think of it as a game, how much content can I fill this journal with? 

Offer Solutions

Share your knowledge with your audience, don't just give your opinion. Far too often do I stumble upon bloggers and influencers who critique an item without posing possible solutions. It is okay to have your thoughts on a matter, but when you fail to follow up with constructive criticism, you are doing your audience a disservice.

An example of this would be "I do not like how I have to put in my password every time I visit my social media account."

A possible solution to that problem would be "The site has a remember me button" or "the browser that I use remembers my login information."

Stay Current

Research, research, research. I cannot stress this enough. You cannot create valuable content on a topic you know nothing about; so unless you are planning on outsourcing everything you need to do your research. Even with sourcing, I still recommend you are familiar with the niche you are going into. So yeah, research and stay current on the events transpiring within your niche's community.

Be a Lifelong Learner

Being a lifelong learner isn't just staying up to date with current events and knowing about the latest and greatest in your niche. It is being able to receive criticism and learn from it. It is also understanding the perspectives of others. As a life long learner, you will develop skill sets you otherwise may have missed out on. 

So continue to ask questions, share ideas, and network. Obtain as much information as you can within your niche so that you can supply your audience with quality information and value. 

Understand Your Audience

This is a key component in becoming a better content creator. You are doing your audience a disservice if you fail to write for them. Once you understand who you are creating content for, then you will be able to answer their questions and add value to them.

Track Your Process

Knowing where you stand with your audience is also an essential component when working towards becoming a better content creator. Check your analytics on a regular base so that you know where you stand with your audience. You can use your analytics to see which posts and formats received the most engagement from your audience.

I check my analytics daily and I record them in my blogging binder and journal. This way I am able to determine what kinds of posts my audience likes and dislikes.
