If you haven't yet started to create an email list as a content creator, you might want to consider doing that sooner rather than later.

An email list is often a cornerstone for a content creator business.  It is your connection to the "warmest leads" your audience; that subset of your audience that's most likely to follow you on social media, engage with your content, and "buy your stuff." T...

When I started this challenge, I did it with the notion that Twitter could have a lot of potential as a distribution platform for my podcast and YouTube channel.

Content creation for Twitter is relatively efficient compared to other social media platforms such as Instagram, Tiktok, or YouTube. It's also comparatively easy to share links via Twitter and - perhaps because of that and the predominantly text-based nature ...

Video content is where it's at on social media these days.  Instagram Reels, TikTok videos, and YouTube represent huge opportunities to get your content seen and build your audience right now.

Successful content creators understand that the value of their brand on social media is measured by the engagement their content generates among a defined audience - meaning, in this case, likes, comments, shares, or other forms of "content interactions." This is what drives platform algorithms to push content out to larger audiences, creating opportunities to build one's own brand and generate interest among followe...
