‘To create or not to create’, sounds more diabolical than a Shakesphere’s tragedy.
A creator’s journey isn’t outlandishly exciting as it appears to be. It has its own share of inhibitions, doubts, and at times, everything feels just overwhelming. The entire process falls flat, especially when you’re starting out. And you don’t know whether you should create or curate, or just follow the trending pattern.
Frankly, there’s no pattern.
Or, a concrete plan.
But there are ways to solidify your voice and make it heard. After all, there’s one thing in common with every great creator- they have a unique voice. Therefore, to help your content machine up and running, we share a list of 4 proven tips that can up your creative game. If successfully implemented, these tips will guide you to become a better creator (trust me, for you’re still reading this article).
Tip 1- Find your engine, the compartments will follow
A train is dependent on an engine to function. Similarly, your creation game is dependent on finding your engine: text or graphics, or video. You can combine them, but it’s important to analyze which works the best for you. And more importantly- what do you enjoy creating the most. Only then, you can gain influence.
Tip 2- God’s omnipresent-you can do by focusing on a single space
Like we mentioned earlier- content creation can get overwhelming. There are several formats, options, platforms, and you want to leverage them all! That’s only natural. But if you push everywhere, it’ll only drain you out. It’s better to start by focusing on one content type (text vs graphics vs video) and create on a single platform.
Eventually, with time and experience (& followers) you’ll catch up on creating on multiple platforms.
Tip 3- Experiment- for it wouldn’t come as a fallen apple
Even the smartest, wittiest, and loudest of us have failed while starting out. However, you shouldn’t lose morale if your content doesn’t attract followers in the initial phase. Better, take a pause to analyze and adapt; until you result in the intended connect. The only mantra here is to be consistent at experimenting.
Tip 4- Amplify your voice, for we live in a social (media) world
Okay, it might sound abstract but you don’t need to like social media or be there to become a creator. But, you will definitely lose the audience (or readers) by opting out. Better pay someone to manage your social media or strike a barter deal with them. Leverage the growing platforms for it will only help to amplify your voice.
To sum it-find your engine-adjust focus-experiment-leverage social media- and voila, you’ll turn into a content creating machine. Follow DYT, to read essential creating tips for we create content specifically to help creators.
