There are things I don’t like doing in my own content: creating REELS and pitching myself to the media.

You have a lot of ideas - and you just want them out of your head.
But instead of it all coming together, you can’t seem to get them out into the world.
Whatever it is: a program, a course, some content, a lead magnet - it’s all living in a swirl inside your mind…
Why is this so hard? Why does it take so freakin’ long?
This is the problem Jen explores today on Content Creation Made Easy - what to do when you’re filled up with ideas and...
Have you ever felt like hiding from your content because it feels too invasive or scary to share yourself with your audience?
Are we supposed to give our audience a front row seat into EVERYTHING we do in our lives?
What if we’re PRIVATE? What if we want a BREAK?
Should we just give up, hide, or rage against the machine?
No need. Today we talk about how to be both transparently ourselves - without losing our boundaries!
Let’s talk about...
What’s the point of putting all your delicious content out in the world if no one’s gonna take a bite?
You create content to CONNECT with your audience so you can EVENTUALLY convert them to customers…
Let’s not pretend this isn’t a Big Freakin’ Deal - conversions are the REASON we’re in business.
Making money from clients is necessary - otherwise we have, you know, an expensive hobby!
So, today you’ll hear Jen as she coaches Matilda Bu...
“I’m just not a good writer! So I hate creating content…” Ummmmm.

The outcome of our marketing content is far reaching and - unfortunately - often not immediately evident!
We know we've gotta show up with our words, ideas, & insights…but too often it feels like a waste of time.
How do we create positive ripple effects - for both ourselves & our audiences - and REDUCE negative ripple effects made by our choices when we feel like we're 'doing it wrong' or wasting time?
Two problems arise when trying to take action on your content:
No wonder creating content feels so tough!
When it feels impossible to clearly express what you do, who you help, and why people should follow & hire you - well - you'd naturally want to avoid that!
So how to stop feeling lik...
Creating content INSIDE your programs? WHAAAA?
When you finally launch your course, membership, or program - and you get the clients IN there…
The need for content is STILL vital - but it changes a bit.
Inside your programs, you need to build trust & relationships while communicating a LOT of information.
It's very possible you might forget or assume something - and miss a chance to help your audience.
The need for great content...
Do you feel invisible - like putting content out isn't even worth it?
And...when someone asks you, "What do you do?" - do you stutter OR have a five-minute explanation?
If feel like you're so generic that you're lost in the ocean of a million other YOUs...
Then your brand message is too MEH!
How do you go from MEH to YEAH!!! Messaging?
That's what we're talkin' about today on Content Creation Made Easy:

But what happens when you get stuck in a vortex of “I don’t wanna!!”?
When marketing + content feels like it’s too hard, too much work, and not working anyway?
What about when you’re overwhelmed by all of the options & possibilities?
This week, Jen explores how that wanting to give up is very real - and...

Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
