Opportunities are Based on Timelines

Bruce podcasting

As creative entrepreneurs and artists we often need inspiration to come out with our best work. The problem with waiting for inspiration is that you can miss important opportunities especially when creating content. Creating content and having it work for you is more about consistency than it is about inspiration. If you are producing content for others then working on their timelines are also important.

I often have people producing content for some of my programs and they sometimes miss opportunities if they wait for inspiration when creating their content. The person creating the content may be waiting for inspiration but the project creating it for may be on a firm schedule and as they say the show must go on. This is why it is important to have what we call a content production schedule when creating content to ensure you are meeting the timelines of the project.

I talk to many artists that create everything from comics to book illustrations and more and all of the artists that are working professionally create content based on the timeline for the project rather than waiting for inspiration. Most have a production schedule and even batch their work on a weekly basis to keep to those schedule.

I myself have multiple podcasts, radio station, and television shows and all are on some sort of schedule. Some schedules are monthly, some are weekly, and some are daily. Sticking to a production schedule is paramount to the shows being aired and sometimes there are steps to be done by other people that shortens the timeline for myself. I learned early on when illustrating for magazines that if you miss a deadline you miss an opportunity. It doesn’t matter how good the work or how popular the person the deadline is the driving force to success. Creatives that can meet deadlines on a consistent basis sill be called upon time and time again.

Creating a Production Schedule

Now that you have learned how to create a production schedule you can apply those items to your workflow and if you are consistent you will see success in your process. Although content needs to be good, meeting deadlines is the next important factor. As someone that produces a lot of content creating that content consistently has been the reason that others look to us for content. Content is king when it comes to online factors and publications. Learn to produce content consistently and you too will be the king or queen of your topic of choice.

Organizing Your Content

Bruce podcasting LP

Creating content is important to any business in 2020 especially in a world that has gone virtual. Video and audio device sales have gone through the roof and many parts are on back order. It is amazing how many podcasts have started since January when the pandemic began. I already had multiple shows on podcast platforms, a television show, and since the pandemic began I have added another television show and a radio station. That doesn’t count the books and other material being published during this time. It just shows how much time is spent in non-pandemic times at functions, events, and maybe even a job, if you still have one of those.

Creating content is one thing, organizing it is another. In July we talked about reusing your content to get the the most mileage from the work you put into creating that content, but how do you keep it all organized?

Having a system for organizing your content is a must when you create a lot of content. For general projects I have always numbered my production projects as we often get multiple projects for one client. I have done the same thing when creating comic books, entrepreneurship books, and other content heavy projects. In the video below I offer tips on how you can organize that content so that you can keep it organized and able to find it again in the future.
