Flip Through Magazines
Magazines can be your best friend when it comes to creating great content! Professional copy writers have done the hard work for you. All you have to do is become “inspired” by their work … never, ever should you “steal” or “copy” their copy!
Magazines like Cosmopolitan and Essence have created content on topics like
“The Glowy Skin Diet – 7 Foods to Feed Your Face”
“Doing Business With Family and Friends, Pros & Cons”
Ebony and Entrepreneur have a few recent titles that read like this …
“#WeToo Sexual harassment Survivors Speak”
“14 Ways to Fall Back in Love with Your Job”
“Ways to Build Wealth Through Commercial Property”
You can subscribe to the magazines you love and look for content that looks like something you can create a spin off of … or you can spend the day in the bookstore. If you are pressed for time like we often are … grab your phone and snap a few pics as you check out at the grocery store. #NoJudgementZone

Keep watching those mega pages on Facebook
Online marketers and social entrepreneurs think they have to be ultra original to create content that will get noticed. The truth is this, you don’t have to be such a one-of-a-kind … you just need to pay attention.
Social media sites like Facebook are filled with accounts by your favorite speakers and leaders across industries. Get in on the action by following these pages. Make a list of the top leaders in your company (if you are in network marketing or direct sales) or the top influencers in your niche. Don’t forget about the people who are not “really famous”, but might have a big following in your niche. After you find their fan pages, your job is to investigate daily!
Look for questions by other people who have posted on their wall. Dive a little deeper and check out the comment thread under a post or video created by your influencer. These comments might give you the spark of genius you need to make your next piece of content.
Here’s your litmus test … if you can answer a question that is posted on a leaders site … or you can talk about a subject matter that is presented, then you should create your own piece of content about it!
Don’t think too hard, just do it!
Did you know that converting leads into customers is actually a physiological thing! Yeah, we were blown away when we discovered the science behind actually getting your audience to buy! Online marketers can cdheck exactly what we learned and how to implement this knowledge into your daily business building activities!

Bust Out Old Notes
You’ve probably heard of something called the notebook graveyard or if you’re like us, then you know the infamous kitchen junk drawer! This is the place where once important pieces of info go to die and never be used again. Many of us attend conference and write down pages of notes, only to chuck them in a “safe place” or on a bookshelf. Some of you jump on company calls and take notes on sticky pads … that end up with a pile of other random papers and bills. Stop the madness and start using these notes to your advantage!
Top leaders, speakers and creatives will often tell you that nothing is really new. Much of the information that we listen to is content we can readily find elsewhere, but we listen because of the person doing the delivery!
Your audience doesn’t care if Tony Robbins or Suzie Q were the people to originally break down the concept of mindset or overcoming self limiting beliefs …. all they care about is the information. When you repurpose your notes and deliver what you have taken the time to learn, your audience will love you for it!
