The Word Nerd Content Marketing Checklist | Outspoken Media

The Word Nerd Content Marketing Checklist | Outspoken Media | Evolution of Work & Education | Scoop.it

Maybe you’ve been distracted lately by Tupac’s hologram stealing the show at Coachella, but if you’ll allow me, I’d like to turn the conversation to content marketing for a moment. Okay, maybe a few moments—get comfy. From the bold strategy Coca-Cola shared with the public, to debates over whether content marketing sucks, content marketing has captured quite a bit of Internet attention, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up.

 

But one thing I’ve noticed is most people are focusing on the marketing part, and not so much on the content part. The general consensus is that quality content is the way to high rankings, traffic, and conversions. But while I’ve read a lot of posts that say you need quality content, I haven’t seen many that outline exactly how to create it. There seems to be a disconnect between copywriting advice, and content marketing how-tos. So let’s connect those dots.

Freelancers’ Guide to Balancing Work and Life

Freelancers’ Guide to Balancing Work and Life | Evolution of Work & Education | Scoop.it

Balancing work and life is very important, and it is necessary to manage both sides perfectly to ensure success in the professional world. Although it sounds simple, managing both sides can be very difficult at times. This is more difficult for freelancers because they need to manage their own time between work and life.

 

Freelancers are people who choose to work from their own comfort zone, which is usually their house. Unlike office employees, freelancers choose to work according to their comfort level. Office employees have their own office schedule, where their log in and log out time is recorded. Accordingly, they work only during those hours and devote the remaining hours to their personal lives. But freelancers operate differently. They work during hours that suit their comfort zone, but if they don’t maintain a balance between work and their personal life, problems could result.
