Congratulations, you made it to the fourth episode of my content creation series. Well done and keep learning to advance your content creation journey. I am glad I can give you enough tips to either help you get started or help you create content that is simple and appealing to different audiences. In the previous post, we discussed why planning your content is important. Today, we will explore a term that is popular among most content creators.
Co-creation takes great courage and sometimes a lot of vulnerability. This is because you will be sharing your ideas with a lot more people and bringing them into your world of content creation. You need people who are listeners and who understand the vision you are bringing on board. They also help you share and grow your audience and you definitely cannot do away with other creators.
Most content creators ,be it bloggers, tiktokers, artists, musicians, producers, or actors, know that they cannot do the work alone. Therefore, there is the need for you to partner with other people who are ahead of you to create great content together. Sometimes, you need to interview others on your channel in order to put them in the spotlight while generating traction for your own channel or platform. It’s always a win-win situation.
Find your team
Creators can be disruptive sometimes and are not good at keeping to the status quo. If that’s you, then you need to find a team that have the same values and passions. Your team should complement your weaknesses. They may be good at crafting great content while you may be good at content marketing, and vice versa. Just be sure to find the right team who want what you want as much as you do.
Keep your head in the game
Believing that you need to raise the bar is one attribute of most creators. However, content creation is more about creating value than it is about competition. Once you are willing to do the work and put in the best, you will shine no matter how much your collaborators try to take all the credit for the work done.
Stick to the stuff you know
If you want to be super cool when you meet with collaborators, chances are you will mess up with your flow. You don’t have to pretend to be like everyone on your team. You just have to do your thing and let the rest of the team do what they also know how to do best. Sometimes we like to confuse our core values and take on what others impose on us. The key is to stick to the script as much as you want to innovate and grow.
In the end
I hope these few tips will inspire you to find other creators who can help you create traction for your content. You just have to find others who do what you do and allow them teach you, work with you, or share your content for you. This is the only way you can keep showing up and sharing more of your work with the rest of the world. And yes, there will be some hitches on the journey of co-creation. But I know you, you can crack every bad nut. Let’s go create together!
