Improving Your Content Creation

July 10, 2019 4:29 pm

There is a difference between content creation and unique content creation. For the most part, the judge of that is your audience. But there are some things that you can do to maximise how well the work is received. 

After all, if you are creating anything from music to photos as well as critique, you’d want some feedback that is glowing. Content creating takes a lot of time, and passion for doing it well. Here are some tips for making your content really pop.

Music

When it comes to making videos, even short ones for Instagram – we have all heard the same song from Kevin Mcleod for YEARS. And while the happy tinkly piano is quick and easy to access, it might be time to step it up a bit. You can make your own music by sourcing free hip hop beats – which tend to be catchy enough for people to keep watching your video. Or, learn to make them yourself from scratch. 

Both are a lot of fun to do and will take your content to a whole new level

Photos

If you are a keen photographer but aren’t sure how to bring your photos to life a bit more, then it might be about the post-edit. Lightroom is one of the easiest and most useful photograph editing softwares available. It can be picked up in the photography package on Adobe website and is around £/$/€ 10. So very budget friendly for small content creators. 

Once you master a great edit, then you can move on to pushing your photography to a bigger stage. If you are looking to make money, then you’ll need to research how photographers make money. If, however, you just want to see your work being used, then check out Unsplash. It allows people the freedom to use your photographs for whatever they like and offers to option to give credit. It’s a great community too. 

Writing

Writing is a tricky business. There are so many avenues that you can choose to go down. Creating written content for your own blog is a lot of fun, and when you get a little more visible, you will find that companies will approach you to work together. To make yourself even more noticeable – make sure you are linking to companies you are talking about, ensure that in the social shares, you are tagging them and using the right hashtags too. Use something like Grammarly to make sure that your grammar and spelling is as close to perfect as you can get it. And – always do your research. 

Combination

You will probably need to push all of your skill levels up for everything that comes under the term content creation. You can take online courses that explain how to maximise your social shares, how to create content that serves people and even more free resources to help you improve your content further.
