As we carry on through our content creation month I’ve heard plenty of comments about people who hate to write. Well, if you’re going to create a profitable and sustainable blog or website you’re going to have to have awesome content… so what do you do if you hate to write?!
If you want to have text posts on your site, but you hate to write you still have some options.
1. PLR ~ private label rights.
These are articles, posts, emails, reports, ebooks ~ all written by someone else. However, once you purchase them you can take them apart, rewrite, mix them up, add them together ~ whatever you want to do with them… AND THEN… put your name on them as your own.
This is an excellent route to go to have text posts and not have to write it yourself. If you’re using them on your blog, or other places on the web you’ll want to rewrite them a bit. Tiffany Dow has an AMAZING walk through of how to rewrite PLR. The niche may be different than yours… but the process is the same.
If you don’t want to rewrite the content yourself you can go to fiverr.com and find someone who will rewrite your articles for 5 bucks. Make sure you find someone who has plenty of positive feedback if you’re going this route. One of my regular readers and Kiss Club members does rewriting at fiverr and she’s fantastic… so check her out if you need this done.
If you need excellent quality PLR make sure you take advantage of this sale. Everything in her PLR store, including her 50 page reports and ebooks are on sale for just a buck! It’s a great deal for sure. Make sure you read the directions in the WSO before you click through… you have to buy a “voucher” and then send her a list of the products you want ~ she’ll send you an email with the products attached.
(For more PLR options check the Resources page!)
2. Video Blog Posts
If you don’t necessarily care about having text on your page then you have even more options! Video blog posts, or vlogs are wonderful ways to create amazing content and not have to write!
All you need is a simple webcam, or a hand held video camera and you’re off to the races. What? You don’t want to be on camera either?! That’s ok… you can also do tutorial videos, or screenshot videos. You could also do product demonstrations where the product is on camera, and you’re just the voice behind the review.
You could also use powerpoint and create “presentation” videos. There are a lot of ways you can go with video content. It’s probably a good idea to go with a mix of the different options though. Remember, you’re building trust, and connection with your readers. Seeing your face, and hearing your voice can go a long way in that respect.
Speedy Video Tutorials ~ if you’d like to learn how to create wonderful videos and powerpoint presentation videos this is an excellent resource. You’ll be walked through the entire process.
Animoto ~ you add images and make a few choices in their software and they create the video for you. An excellent way to add a quick video to a post or anywhere else.
3. Audio Content
Creating a podcast is one way to sky rocket your traffic, and do it without writing a single word! Recently Corbett Barr did an interview with Derek Halpern of Social Triggers where Derek talked about how adding a new form of content (his podcast) added an entire new stream of traffic to his site. He posted his podcast on itunes so he ended up connecting with a totally different segment of the population ~ and increased his readership.
There’s so many things you can do with audio. You could do an interview with someone, you can talk about any given topic, in fact, one of my favorite podcasts is really short ~ and it’s a “daily” moment from Elizabeth Potts Weinstein. Your podcast is only limited by the bounds of your imagination. You can literally do anything you want in audio format… and then link up your podcast with itunes so people can find it.
Blubrry ~ is the company and plugin I use to upload and play my podcasts here on IMM. They also help you integrate your podcast with itunes.
There are a lot of options out there for people who don’t like to write. It’s just a matter of testing things out and figuring out what you like to do, and what your audience enjoys, and then being consistent in creating content. (there’s that consistency again lol).
