    How To Create More Time For Your Life Without Compromising Your Business







    Your business should support your life, not the other way around. I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on non-content-related activities lately, like painting and gardening. I’m exploring acrylics, oil pastels, and mixed media on canvas, and I’m absolutely loving it. I even completed my first official commission recently – a significant milestone for me.







    I wanted to share this because I had to create space in my life for this new passion intentionally. With my kids taking up more of my time, I have less focused work time at the computer. But I still crave that adult-oriented fulfillment from doing something I enjoy.













    So, how do I create space in my life for activities like painting, gardening, or spending time with my dog? The answer is leaning heavily into tools that help me work more efficiently. We’re talking about AI tools (partly) and non-AI tools (also partly). And thirdly,

    Authority Opinions: Building Authority & Impactful Content Creation

    Authority Opinions: Building Authority & Impactful Content Creation

    We talk about building authority opinions, why they’re important, and how to use them in your content. In this episode, host Britney Gardner revisits the concept of authority opinions and explains why they need to be more than just regular opinions. By sharing personal experiences and practical examples, Britney highlights the significance of backing up authority opinions with real evidence and integrating them into a comprehensive content strategy. She also discusses the transformational power of crafting clear and impactful authority opinions and their role in filtering and engaging with the most aligned audience. Tune in to learn how authority opinions can elevate your content and resonate with your ideal clients.









    Authority opinions are going to do one very important job: they are going to tell them, yes, this person is worth following and hanging out with, and following and seeing if we can get on the same page, or, no, this person is not for me. That, friends, that is a wonderful place to be, when people see what you are about and they’re like, I would be best served elsewhere. You want those people to think that. That is a good thing.

    Before I delve into this topic, let me say that I’ve discussed authority content before – three years ago, to be precise. And while I still stand by that episode on crafting an authority opinion, I believe it’s time to add to it. So let’s dive into building authority opinions, why we create them, and how to incorporate them regularly in content marketing.







    What Is Authoritative Content?







    First and foremost, we all have opinions – my tea is weak, it’s not warm enough today, or my typing is too loud. These are based on our lived experiences and beliefs. These personal opinions are based on our own experiences,

    Random Acts of Content

    On today’s episode host Britney Gardner delves into the concept of “random acts of content,” also known as “spray and pray posting.” She shares personal stories from her time as a photographer and discusses how this approach can actually be harmful to your business. Using insights from industry experts, Britney emphasizes the importance of intentional content creation and its role in guiding the audience on a journey. With practical tips and a clear call to action, this episode explores how to avoid falling into the cycle of reactive, ineffective content strategies and instead, to create content that truly resonates and brings meaningful results. If you want to step away from the random and into the intentional, then stay tuned for this insightful episode.









    Effective Content isn’t accidental. Content ROI is not an accident.

    Ah, Random Acts of Content – or as it’s commonly known, Spray and Pray Posting. I’ve spent a fair amount of time discussing the absolute and utter perils of this approach–and this article won’t be a flip on that. In fact, the first pillar of the Uncommon Content framework emphasizes mapping out your content, which stands in stark contrast to Spray and Pray Posting. 







    What is “Spray and Pray” Posting To Content?













    But let’s rewind a bit; the term “spray and pray” comes from my days as a photographer.







    A little industry insight: when I began my career as a wedding photographer, the transition from film to digital was well underway. Though I started my own business exclusively using digital photography, I had previously worked with film photographers. To navigate this new world, I joined the Digital Wedding Forum – a message board created by those eager to embrace digital technology.







    At that time, digital photos didn’t always match the quality of their film counterparts. Photographers had to learn,

We delve into the topic, highlighting the importance of thoughtful and strategic repurposing. Britney emphasizes the need to ensure that the original content is effective before repurposing it, shedding light on the potential pitfalls of distributing content that may not be resonating with the audience. 







    Throughout the episode, she draws colorful analogies, including a quirky comparison between content and managing pets, to drive home her points.

    [Content repurposing] can become a bigger problem when you’re reusing that content in different ways because you might end up tanking your social following on one of your channels if you keep pushing this content piece that isn’t doing well.

    Thoughtful Content Repurposing







    Before we delve into the nitty-gritty of repurposing content, let’s be clear about one thing: there’s a downside to repurposing. And that’s exactly what we’re going to discuss today. Look, I’m all for repurposing content – in fact, my main offer is helping service providers like you utilize evergreen content in smart ways so you can escape the content creation hamster wheel. But there’s a catch, and it lies in one sneaky little word: thoughtful.







    Many tend to gloss over this word, possibly because being thoughtful implies intention and strategic thinking–more than you might want to invest. When it comes to repurposing, you might feel like you’ve already put so much effort into content creation that you just want to repost something and call it a day. Well, I hate to break it to you,

    The Content Easy Button

    The Content Easy Button

    In this episode, Britney discusses the concept of the “Content Easy Button” and how it relates to marketing and repurposing content. She emphasizes the importance of strategic content planning, showing up authentically, and honing in on what works to create a consistent flow of clients. 







    We cover soloists and content creation:









    * Importance of content for soloists







    * Challenges faced by soloists with limited time and a small client base







    * Embracing a content creation process for continuous business growth











    You have to build a freeway to get people across the city in a timely manner. You have to connect streets so people can go there, and that’s what marketing does for your audience, it gives them the streets and the highways to go on so they can get to you faster and then get to that big change that will turn corners in their lives.

    The Content Easy Button: For Those Who Believe in Their Work







    For soloish entrepreneurs and seasoned marketers alike, the struggle to effectively market our content can often be a thankless task. We believe in our ideas and the remarkable services we have to offer, and it’s natural to question why we should have to put in the effort to market them. Shouldn’t people just instantly recognize the value we bring? Shouldn’t they be eager to work with us if they truly understood the transformative potential of our big idea?







    In our minds, we imagine an elusive tool called the Content Easy Button – a magical solution that effortlessly generates engaging content and does the marketing for us, attracting clients like moths to a flame. If only we could find this easy button, we could breathe a sigh of relief knowing that our content creation and marketing efforts would be taken care of in a flash.







    But as we entertain these fantasies, we must confront the reality that marketing is an essential part of getting our ideas seen and heard.

Officially Obsessed With Britney

Stumbled upon Britney’s podcast, listened to the Uncommon Content episode, and am so thankful.

#1 - Yes! Uncommon Goods is the best place to find gifts. (The pistachio dish says it all.)
#2 - Her belief in finding/owning/staying true to your voice in your marketing, consistency, and then seeing what works and how they tie all together had me so motivated, I had to pull over and take notes.

I’m now stalking her on social. Signed up for her newsletter which actually is a mini training. How cool is that?!?
And now, I’m super excited to dive in.

Shout-out to Britney for sharing your knowledge.
