2017 Content Excellence Challenge: The June Prompts

  1. What great ideas.

    I pretty much do all the social media thingamajig, but setting a specific time? I never thought of that.

    But I’m definitely going to give it a go.

    As for the alter ego, I’ve also done that and it can be quite liberating: pretend you’re someone else – maybe even a celebrity – a speak in their voice.

    I’m going to do that again, as well.

    • Cool, Adam.

      At this point in my life, I think one of the most useful accidents of my existence was doing theater when I was a teenager. I can pretend (even to myself) to be just about anyone, and that does come in handy.

      • Funny you should say that.

        Cheesy as it may sound, I had considered taking acting lessons just to get better at sales and this type of thing.

        Never interested in actually acting, though. I’m not that cheesy.

        No offense.

  2. June really sparks me to get stuff done. I feel that with only six more months left of the year I really must achieve. Some really great productivity tips here. Might even give FB ads a chance.

  3. Great prompts. I’ve filled my June calendar of the ones I want to see accomplished.
    Thanks so much.

  4. I can really recommend LinkedIn as an outreach method – as long as your messaging doesn’t come across as being ‘spammy’ or annoying. As you say, proposing a guest post can be really beneficial too.

    This was a great read, Sonia!

  5. **What kinds of outreach have you found valuable? And what will be your day and time to schedule them this month?**

    I’ve been experimenting around with Twitter events for a few years.

    My current iteration is a coffee break for productivity and accountability.

    Take 10 at 10. #ChicoryChix

    That’s 10 minutes at 10 o’clock Pacific every weekday. It’s quick. It’s focused. It’s fun.

    Anyone can join in. Just share your drink of choice for the coffee break. (Bonus points for pinging a brand. They love to play along.) Comment on the theme or quote of the day. Monday: Self-Care, Tuesday: Reading, Wednesday: Writing, Thursday: Business, Friday: Pau Hana.

    On Fridays, I create an archived digest of the tweets in Storify.

    In 10 minutes of tweeting and approximately 10 minutes of prep, I get to tick about 10 things off of my to-do list and create a space for others to do likewise.

    I will be pivoting to a mini podcast while maintaining the live tweets. The beverage and breakfast purveyors will be warm to sponsorship pitches. Bonus.

    **Whatโ€™s your alter ego amazing at?**

    What’s in your cup? Small talk.
