You were not placed on this Earth to stay stuck somewhere or to stay stuck in a job that you hate.Every single one of us has something unique that we can offer and bring to the world. As nurses, we have a service heart. Most of us got into nursing because we enjoyed helping people. We’re all created to do something that involves serving others.If something has been placed on your heart, if you feel something is on your heart, or maybe there’s an idea that’s been going around in your head, remember that it’s there for a purpose.

Episode 172: How to Simplify Content Creation With Jen Liddy
Do you want to take the “Ugh” out of content creation? Today, we have Jen Liddy to share strategies to “easify” or simplify and make content creation fun!Points to Listen for: Step off the Content TREADmill: 5 steps to create & repurpose content with a simple system that fits your specific style.How to Stop Giving Away All the HOWs! A framework for content creation to connect & convert your audience – without burning you out!About Jen LiddyIn 2013, Jen made a terrifying leap into entrepreneurship, learning everything the hard way. Now, as a content creation specialist, she helps personal brands step off the content creation treadmill and get out of the content chaos with strategies that make content fun and easy! And because of her background as a literature teacher, she can help people pull out their ideas and get them on paper, video, or voice for content creation so that they can start marketing themselves with content that feels like them. It’s like putting on a suit for you rather than trying other people’s systems or funnels. Everything she teaches is customizable to work for you!5 Steps to Step Off the Content TREADmill1. Avoid being an over-giver – by our profession, we love helping and serving others and because of that we tend to give information to people that is more than they can process. We think that is helping them by doing so, but it’s the opposite. 2. Try to scale back – don’t let your audience feel they are out of capacity. Provide them breakdowns or basics for easier learning because sometimes it is what they need.3. Make sure your content is easy to digest – people tend to tune you out if the content is too complicated.4. Fish food method – give your audience little nuggets, blogs or longer content can be a bit boring. Try breaking them down, it’s lesser for you to do and easier to digest.5. Don’t firehose your audience with information – let your audience pick the information you share to avoid getting overwhelmed. Provide them with just the right amount of information so they can get back to you for more if they needed to.Framework for Content CreationPASA Framework P stands for Problem, Pain, Promise, and Potential. A scroll-stopping line that engages the person.A stand for Agitate. If you don’t like the word agitate you can use the word excite, mirror, or reflect. You want to be specific in naming back to them the things that they are doing, thinking, and feeling.S stands for Suggest. Provide an option, solution, or relief. Make them feel that they can do it.A stand for Action or call-to-action. This doesn’t necessarily mean buying something, it could be a comment, share, or joining your group. The more you invite people to take action, they WILL take action.Connect with her on Instagram and Facebook: @jennliddycoach Website: jenliddy.comThe Future Is FreelanceThis show is for freelancers, sole traders, solopreneurs, digital nomads, consultants,...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show

You can also use the 30-minute downtime for reading a book before going to bed.5 hours for content creation, such as working on a book, a course, or coaching packages.The best time for us to do this is in the morning, an hour before our children wake up. If you feel this might not work for you just like with us, it’s better to try and figure out when is the time your brain is the most productive. You can spend your time by breaking it down into one hour per day, or you can take that 5 hours on the weekend and focus on what you’re working on.4 hours dedicated to working directly with your clients.This is something you can efficiently do on your day off or during the weekend. As nurses, we’ll be lucky to have extra time on a 12-hour shift or a day off during the week.3 hours for marketing efforts like building your brand and connecting to people.If you set aside at least 30 minutes during your lunch break, you’ll be able to complete the 3-hour marketing activities that you’re working on. With some of your spare time, check your social media and Facebook community.Where do you start?We’re all aware that nursing schedules are weird, and they aren’t the same every week. So go through your plan, write out the breakdown of your 15 hours, and fill in the blanks with what you need to complete in each of these areas.The Future Is FreelanceThis show is for freelancers, sole traders, solopreneurs, digital nomads, consultants,...Listen on: Apple Podcasts   SpotifySupport the show

Episode 168: How Do I Pick a Topic to Write About?
We’re having this new episode again today where I will give you tips on picking a topic to write about.Key points discussed in this episode:How to pick a topic to write aboutHow do you not reinvent the wheel every single time but really hone into something that your clients will likeNiching downDetermining a topic that is relevant to the client’s content strategyHow to Pick a Topic to Write for a Client’s Content StrategyYour heart desire and niching it way, way down, doing research on your client. Picking a topic to write about can vary on the type of writing you’re doing. I always say, if you’re writing for a client, you’ll want to know the content strategy the client has in mind and work with that.Remember, our goal with content is to gain traffic, so you have to know a little bit about what’s going on in the industry. Hopefully, your client has a strategy that focuses on keyword analysis and search engine optimization that can help guide you on topic generation. You’ll want to pitch clients ideas that are trending in the industry based on what the client’s audience might be searching for. Again, if they have a great SEO person, they already know what that is. Now it’s up to you to write it.Another way is to look at what the client has already posted and what’s working on their current blog. If they have “5 tips for something,” dive deep into one tip and create a blog post around it.I hope this helps!Support the show
How do I write for clients?
Jun 7 2022
How do I write for clients?
Before you write for clients, you have to learn first the steps you need to take to start the work. Here are some tips from Janine!Key points in this episode:Importance of setting up a discovery callThings you need from the clients after the discovery call and before you write for clientsWhat is a brand guide or style guide?Importance of having a brand guideElements of a brand guideJanine is sharing a handy questionnaire for your new clients to help you visualize your client’s brandDetermining your client’s target audience and direct competitorsWhat Is A Style Guide?When you first talk to your client, you’re going to want to ask for a brand guide and a style guide.A style guide is like a policy but if your clients don’t have one they need a questionnaire.When you receive the brand guide look at it.But if they don’t have one, let’s help them create one by sending over a questionnaire. This is a template you might want to keep handy because this won’t be the last time you need it. Ask them questions like:What are some words to stay away from?If your customer was in front of you, what would they look like and how would they act? This will help you visualize the audienceWho are your direct competitors? Why do we want to know their direct competitors? Because, as a writer, you don’t want to cite direct competitors in your work.Also, take time to look at your client’s past work. Check out the language, the tense, etc. This will help you write directly for that client.If you want more information and want to start your biz – check out my free download savvynursewriter.com/3questionsDo you have a hard time starting your own freelance writing business because you aren’t sure if it is right for you?

Episode 163: Pricing Strategies and Tips for Selling Your Service With Francielle Silva
A lot of content writers struggle when it comes to pricing. They are great at what they do but they have the employee mindset. The problem is they don’t go out there and get help in improving their sales and marketing skills because these are different skills that they need to acquire. They have the skill to do the job but they don’t have the skill to sell the service. So, we got Francielle joining us today to give her expert pricing strategies and selling your service.About FrancielleToday’s guest is Francielle Silva. She was born and raised in Brazil but moved to Canada 8 years ago and worked as a caregiver. She has a lot of experience and built a community on Facebook called the Newbies Copywriters & Content Writers.She started out as a copywriter last year and she is transitioning into a business coach because she loves helping people and she got some who are requesting her service. She used some strategies that work. Now, she is leveling up by focusing as a business and visibility coach to help her clients stay visible on social media.Key points we've discussed:Pricing strategies without sounding salesyFrancielle provides a downloadable pricing guide for our Savvy Nurse Writer membersGet the pricing you deserve without chasing away clientsTips for getting testimonials from your clientsTo charge per hour or notTips for Pricing your ServicesWhen you charge very low, you are also attracting low-paying clients that will not trust you.
