Your New Content Writing Strategy Doesn't Have To Wait Till January
Come January 2, my phone will be ringing off the hook, emails will flood my inbox, and my work calendar will be loaded with appointments from small-business owners eager to kick-start their new content writing strategies for 2024.
It happens every year – without fail. And I love being that writing and editing partner they feel comfortable turning to for help. But I've gotta ask – why wait?
While setting New Year's goals is exciting, and having engaging content for things like blogs, website copy, press releases, handbooks, and other marketing needs is a must to attract and build relationships with your audience, a common habit I see among business owners this time of year is that they'll completely forget that we still have TWO months left in 2023.
Sure, it's November 9, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
I get it – Christmas isn't that far away. And on top of that, there's New Year's Eve.
But between now and then, you're still working. Right? You still need to write about what's happening in your world, spark engagement, and establish yourself as a credible brand and authority in your industry. You're not shutting down shop.
So why let your content writing strategy wait until January?
Hit the Ground Running in 2024 With Strong Content!
Now is the time to think about how you want to deliver your message in the New Year. Sure, you can still hit the ground running in January, but wouldn't it be better to have all that fresh new website content complete and ready to go on January 2?
What about blogs? I think it's smart to have a few dozen posts in the hopper ready to go. Or better yet, why not write and post them now to start building momentum?
And surely there are things you need to write about to maintain a presence and stay top of mind with your clients during the holidays. If you don't, they may just go elsewhere.
Need content writing? Here are a few ideas to get you going in the right direction:
* Website copy
* Press Releases
* White papers
* Video scripts
* Targeted email blasts
* Customer letters
* Manuals and handbooks
* Mission statements
* Product descriptions
* Employee and executive bios
* And so much more ...
