An entrepreneur’s life: other people envy it, but only when they’re not that familiar with the daily schedule, or the list of responsibilities.

3 Content Tactics to Ace Even on Your Busiest Days
You want to succeed in content marketing, but you also need to be efficient about it. With that in mind, here are three of our favorite content tactics for busy entrepreneurs like you:
1. Use Templates
Templates are a beautiful thing. Ask any sales team, and they’ll tell you that templates save them countless hours of duplicating pitches, manually entering information, and rebuilding the wheel (so to speak), over and over. Fortunately, this is one of the easiest places to save yourself some time. Instead of rewriting every email campaign, designing every social post from scratch, or drafting every blog post from the ground up, make use of templates. Templates use the same format for different pieces of content, thereby making it much easier to create high-quality content while also saving boatloads of time. Looking for something to help you get started? HubSpot offers a stellar library of free content marketing templates you can download and apply to your business.
2. Create Videos
If you want to work smarter, not harder, videos are a great place to start. There are a few reasons for this. For one, video content is easier to consume than a blog post. Like an infographic or another visual asset, video content provides a vast amount of information in a super-digestible format. It’s a win-win for both customers and companies. If you’ve never incorporated video marketing into your content strategy, now could be an excellent place to start. When it comes to producing videos, you have two primary options: you can build them yourself, or you can hire an agency to do it for you. While some teams have a video design expert on staff, it would be smart to hire an agency in most situations. Unless you already have someone equipped to create videos, you’ll waste a bunch of time and a big portion of your marketing budget trying to figure it out.
3. Flex Your Social Presence
Social media and other channels are a great way to give your content a super boost. In addition to helping you expand your reach beyond organic search, these social platforms make it easier to access other relevant distribution channels, as well. Take a look at Reddit, for example, which is a great way to access attentive niche audiences that are hungry to devour your content. Even better? Using social media is a great way to make your content work as hard as possible, without investing a considerable amount of additional time or energy. Use your favorite platforms to repurpose content you’ve already created - turn a blog post into an infographic, for example, or transform a course into a webinar. It’s easy, fun, and accessible to everyone.
Win at Content, Even on the Busiest Day
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is great content. Once your business is up and running, your next mission is to find a way to make your content thrive and grow without a huge amount of daily investment. Things like templates, scheduled social media postings, and a focus on easier-to-consume content formats - like video - will all go a long way to help. If you want to take this one step further, consider hiring an agency to step in and assist. A skilled agency will be able to provide you with the guidance and input you need to create and maintain a dynamic content strategy, even if you want a hands-off approach.
