The Content Calendar System, huh? You mean plan it all ahead of time? Crazy talk! Or a brilliant idea so that you stop feeling like you are chasing your own tail? After a few years of working in direct sales and for myself I think it sounds like a relief. If you are like me and have struggled to find the right fit then this course might be your glass slipper toward the Cinderella life.
The Content Calendar System || Kimberly Ann Jimenez
This video course is a quick and easy overview of why original content is king. As well as offers some strategies for creating it, repurposing it, and two tools to help you manage it all. The delivery provides you examples of the practice in action and tips for how you can come up with your own ideas. Furthermore, there are printables and bonus pieces of training provided to help you round out the process and hit the ground running instead of running in circles.
Kim Jimenez does an excellent job of explaining what original content is, why it is important, and how you can take the content you make and break it into chunks to share across multiple channels. Since I have a blog (duh!) and have been in business for myself for a while I understand the importance but it was awesome to see it explained from another perspective.
Area for improvement
The information is still relevant even though the material was recorded in 2015/2016, which says a lot for our ever-changing online business environment but could use some freshening up. In a couple of the videos, she references items that are no longer in the course or have been changed (Forum v. The Business Lounge). Furthermore, a couple of bonus links no longer direct to the right resources.
Who would benefit from the course
Established or just getting started? There is something for everyone in this course. Just remember that “Content is King,” especially original content.
Content is King… the broad opportunities for most companies involve supplying information or entertainment. No company is too small to participate.Bill Gates
One of the exciting things about the Internet is that anyone with a PC and a modem can publish whatever content they can create.
For those that are just getting started doing what they love this course lays a great foundation for sound business practices, not just for the creation of original content. Learning early how to manage a content calendar system will pay dividends in the long run!
I am excited to implement some of the ideas explored in The Content Calendar System and really utilize Trello in a more robust way.
Furthermore, I am still trucking along with my #bulletjournal so I think between Trello, #bujo, and some of Kim Jimenez’s strategies I might just finally turn the page in my journey from chaos to function! Drop me a line to share your successes or share them with us on our community page.
