It's Essential to Create These Content Types

  01/06/2021

Remaining active online means that your subscriber lists, social media profiles, channels, and memberships need content all of the time. Soon you will feel like you live to create new material. Just think how fast you'll burn yourself out, wondering what else to post (if you don’t have an outline to follow). Establishing content pillars lets you know how to show up for your clients.

There are 4 kinds of content that you need to create. Each type focuses on the problems, goals, and fears of your ideal client in different ways. Let's say you are a dental hygienist:
