By now it’s probably pretty obvious that blogging is one of the most important things that we can be doing as business owners. The internet has made all business owners into content creators. This is due to the fact that marketing has changed from something that you pay a third party to do, to something that you produce.
In and of this endeavor, we are working on our blog here at SkyPoint. So we decided to make a new challenge that would help to drive content creation for the blog. We call this challenge the Bathroom Break Blog Challenge. And essentially it goes like this, every time you go to the bathroom and want to bring your phone and look at Facebook or Instagram, instead whip out a writing program and dictate a blog post.
This is a much better use of the time then scrolling through social media. Once the blog post is dictated, and the bathroom business is finished up, the post is sent out to an email account. Inside the email account (on a desktop computer) the post will be copied and pasted into the website blog post.
Then from there, it will be edited and formatted, adding images and links and then the post will be ready to send out to the world! So why is it so effective? Because we all go to the bathroom every day! And this is time that we could be using to help to grow our businesses, believe it or not.
We all have thoughts in our minds about how to run our businesses, and usually those thoughts are the most poignant in our mind when we go to the bathroom. It’s one of those times in the day where the business owner is guaranteed to have some free time to write.
It’s the type of writing that I like to do, which is really just dictating into the phone and then editing it later. What are you doing to get yourself to write more? Do you have a specific process or place that you like to go to write?
Let me know in the comments below! I’d like to hear your thoughts on the Bathroom Break Blog Challenge.
