Having Trouble Thinking About What To Include In Your Website?
There’s more to it than those first six pages you came up with. Figuring it all out can be a bit of a challenge. What you really need is a website content plan. In case you haven’t hired an internet coach or a website designer, here’s a video created by Scott Ellis to jumpstart your thinking process.
Scott Ellis teaches an effective way to organize the myriad of content that will make up your website and keep things logically organized, consistent and on message.1
This video is Building The Ultimate Website Content Map (Part One). I haven’t seen a second part, but this first one may be all you need to help focus your thinking and jumpstart your website.
Strategic Planning The Fun Way
Another way to organize your content is to create a Squidoo Lens, even a fun one like my Don Cornelius Soul Train Video Showcase. Why? Because they are focused — laser sharp — on a topic. The workflow is sort of laid out for you, and you can easily add and remove modules containing text, video, audio, and more.
Think of creating such a lens as an exercise in strategic planning. Not only does it help get you in the producer zone, once completed you’ll also have another way to show your expertise to your visitors, customers, clients, and followers. And, hey, it doesn’t have to be cool like my Soul Train lens, it could be a mixture of business and pleasure like my personal lens, Vernessa Taylor, Computer Geek.
