In order to keep our cats from doing the same, we ripped the carpet out immediately. Which left me in an office with just subflooring for MONTHS. Not the best for podcast sound quality. And putting down blankets every time I wanted to record? It got old fast. Which made me think "I've got to figure out how to record a month's worth of episodes at once instead of one at a time".
What I learned from that experiment has gone on to help hundreds of women batch create their content, and make space for being strategic with what they're creating as well. And I want to help you do the same!
Content marketing is an incredible marketing tool for small business owners because it's free to low-cost. There's no barrier to entry, and you can get started building an audience immediately. But what it lacks in monetary cost, it makes up for with two things:
Your mental capacity, and your time.
Which is why my mission is to help creatives fit marketing into their business without it taking over their business - so that they can grow their business .... all without sacrificing their time and mental energy.
And it all goes back to simplicity.
Discover how to show up consistently and create results through strategic plans.
Ready to simplify your content marketing?
The first step to a strong content marketing strategy is being consistent. Consistency builds the know, like, and trust factor with your audience ... leading to an engaged audience that actually cares about what it is that you have to say.
Once you're consistent, it's time to get serious about the strategy. Strategy won't matter if you aren't showing up and building relationships with your audience.
The key to getting started? Simplifying.
You're most likely putting too much pressure on yourself and your content. Keep it simple, and make it easier on yourself. And if you want help with keeping things simple, be sure to stick around!

Content plans crafted
cat snuggles a day
Routines, checklists, and a plan to follow make my day run smoothly. Sprinkle in cat snuggles, and a good book and I'm one happy lady.
Walking, golfing, traveling ... being outside in any way. Bonus points if it's with my husband of nine years, Russell.
Four day work weeks, two-hour lunch breaks, and the ability to disconnect from my business since my content is working for me!

"Now I have a clear plan and I trust myself to execute the plan."

"Working with Amanda made marketing something I didn't dread."
