Organizing Your Content
This is one of those things, right? How do I get my crazy into somewhere that I can use it? Let me tell you something. Don't trust your brain. It's not meant it's not. Ah, hard drive, right? It's a muscle it's meant for doing. It's not It's not. It's strong. So strong Point and I discovered that, and I was like, I have all these ideas, but then when I need one, it's not there. So ever know you're about to get the best publicity of your life right now because this is like a religion to me. I cannot function without ever known. And basically, I want you to think of ever know as a journal sticky note notebook to do list? It's capable of all of that. I'm not going to do a whole tutorial, although I should, because I love it so much. But I want to just paint a picture of how you can utilize tools and resource is to start to structure, to capture and organize and structure your content. Um, so let me actually kind of break down the process, and then we'll get into every now and I'll show you...
how I would do it in real life. So you're gonna keep a digital paper list? It did. You're going keep a digital list or for some people they like half like creative people love a pen and paper. So if that's your mode, do it. Whatever you dio needs to be one list campy one all over the place because I guarantee it will get lost, something trustworthy. That's where you're gonna store all of your ideas. So think of this as a big butterfly net, a big colander or big funnel where you're just going out there and capturing all these potential ideas. You're not committing the act on them. Do anything with them. You're just capturing them for safekeeping. Then what you're gonna do is start to break down these ideas. You just ask. I could do a video about hot as higher shoe. Do people need to know how to do that? Does my audience want to know how to do that? Am I passionate about that? Ask yourself those questions to decide. Is this going to go into my upcoming videos or shelve it for later? And I never don't delete an idea that you don't respond to now because I guarantee there will come a time where you respond to it later. So always, always keep it. Then once you sort your topics by enthusiasm and how much you care, Or maybe it's relevancy. We have current events all the time. So let's say something dramatic happens. I don't know a natural disaster. And you had a story about that in your piggy bank of information of ideas. You can, all of a sudden pull from that. Put the two together for that. That experience, that current event, Um, then once you have those topics, or whether the time relevant one or just one that you really want to share sooner than later you can start to plug it away based on how often you want a post and how you want to deliver it. So, in other words, you're scheduling when you're gonna post that, what happens when you have something on your calendar? Forces? Yeah, you do it and it's there. So you know, you're instantly prepare yourself for that. So if you know that you want to post a video on the 30th of July, you know that before then you need to come up with a script. You need to record it. You need to edit it. So all of a sudden, by default, you're gonna start setting deadlines for all these other steps to get that finished video by the 30th. Um, so then once you have it scheduled, you can populate all of that. You can start populating your topics that you picked. You can do your research. You can fill it in with your thoughts and feelings or ideas. And then you can sort through that talk about what? Visuals. You want to kind of reiterate that sometimes you don't need visual. Sometimes the visuals make the story. And then, um from there, you'll plan and schedule to record it. So you have all the information that outlines air there. It's all structured, ready to go. You record it. And then once it's recorded, you can edit it. So it really doesn't feel that hard to dio like if you say I got a record a video that feels like a lot. But if you're like, I just need to pick a topic. Okay. Done. Easy. Now I just need to talk. Decide what I want to include. What talking points I want to include Done. It's like eating an elephant bite by bite. You break it down into quickly, easy to do things. Um And then, of course, we'll talk about how to do that in batches. So you're not totally just exerting all of your time and energy. So let's experiment, shall we? We're gonna record a video, so we're gonna actually brainstorm ideas. Um, I do this thing on my channel, it's almost like a log. It's like I can do whatever I want. Sort of the thing I call it mystery Monday. It's a mystery because I have no idea what I'm gonna dio. Um, so you see, if I can just to work, So we're going to create this is the Evernote platform. We're going to create a new note, and we're going to call it. We'll just call it Mystery Monday brainstorming. Okay, anything goes right. It's all out there. So I'm like, Well, I got this new lipstick that I liked so I might talk about that I'm not committing to anything. I'm just throwing out ideas with sticking. I don't know. I don't know. Um oh, and then we just had 1/4 of July trip. That was fun. So I might want to talk about that. Us. I'll be honest when I'm doing this. I don't spellcheck. I don't capitalize. I don't punctuate. So I just used me to be able to tell what? Your rope? Kyler. Um, I liked his ideas, like sharing so people can come to your video and then you get more subscribers. But then you show me like you should do this, Siri on your YouTube channel. So if you combine them if you get over, like 56 subscribers, odd and serious or something like that. Oh, I don't know if you guys heard by. He said you can take the challenge of, like, sharing this with I'm gonna offer you something. It if you If I get 100 new subscribers by the end of the day, it doesn't even have to be a serious. I'm gonna do a backflip off this table in a dress making 100,000 used to subscribers. I will dio back e love that comment. Um, okay, so I'm on creative life, so I'm gonna talk about that. I would love to share about that. Potentially. I would just continue, like vomit out ideas of things that I that my audience might want to share. You want to know something else? I might also have another No, over here that I keep all the time about comments. And, of course, I start to organize my more. But if I'm going through my comments on Instagram or YouTube or anything, I will start to fill the men and keep him all the time. Because you never know when you're gonna be lacking content, ideas or motivation or perspective or a lot of times, just like they're doing in the Forum.
