When you apply The Revolutionary Lab’s TASK Framework to blogging, you’ll be able to take advantage of the benefits of blogs on your website and save yourself time and money all at once.
Psst — Need a refresher on the TASK framework I created as a small business owner? Here is a blog post all about it HERE.
The first step to any great blog post is thinking about your content. Above all else — your blog should deliver actual value to the reader and draw them closer to your business. When you hit this step, it might be helpful to make a list of sample blog posts that your ideal client would benefit from.
If you’re struggling to decide what blogs to write — here’s a few general ideas to get your creative juices flowing …
At first, writing a blog might feel like a tedious process. But you just might be surprised at how much you can automate when it comes to blogging. Start by taking an inventory of what you’re already doing. Are you writing social media posts? Great! Beef up the content and turn it into a blog. Were you featured on someone’s podcast? Fantastic! Transcribe that content into a blog post for your own audience.
When you start to take note of what content you’re already producing, the blogging part becomes a lot easier. Make a list of content you’ve produced already that might make a great blog.
Unfortunately, writing a blog is not enough. You have to also share it with people. This might seem daunting at first, but you can build your blog posts into a lot of your other systems. Here are a few suggestions …
Now it’s time to reflect. One of the best ways to reflect when it comes to blogging is by reading through your blog one more time. It’s a great opportunity to check for any errors, but most of all, it’s your chance to review your content. Here are four questions to ask yourself while you read through your blog …
The truth is — your blog should do all three of these things. If it doesn’t, you can go back, repeat the process, and improve your blog even more!
Blogging for your business can feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. When you create a consistent schedule and apply the TASK method, your blogs will establish you as the go-to expert in your field.
