How to Combine Efficiency with Creativity to Boost Your Content Creation Process
Lee Odden
CEO, TopRank Marketing
We all know that a last-minute scramble to crank out another blog post is hardly the origin story for most great content. From poor planning to lack of resources, falling behind on content production happens for a variety of reasons, so how can you stem the time and get back on schedule.
After 14-plus years of blogging, I’ve found that creating quality content on a consistent basis is a combination of efficiency and creativity. Where do you start? Here are four areas of opportunity:
  • Crowdsourcing: Run polls on Twitter. Survey your customers. Invite employees to share FAQs. Run contests that require content for entry.
  • Repurposing: Make the content you’re creating work in multiple ways. For example, if you’re conducting interviews, publish them in full and then pull insights from each to create a new post.
  • Influencer Collaboration: Influencers add insight, credibility, and authority to you content. Make it a point to identify content collaboration opportunities and grow the relationship.
  • Optimize Performance: Data opens the door to content performance optimization. Consistently review your metrics to unearth opportunities so you can adjust as you go, close gaps, test new ideas, and iterate on your approach.
Efficiency and creative thinking are keys for bolstering content creation productivity. Read my post on 16 ways to be more efficient with content creation to get more insight on how to tackle each of these areas of opportunity.

Small Conversion Rate & Search Optimization Tweaks Yield Big Results for This Niche Business
These days, many marketers are focusing on short-term campaigns to spike awareness and engagement, and to get quicker wins. But a series of short-term pushes don’t guarantee long-term success.
