How To Create Your December Content Quickly

December can be a crazy time of year for us small business owners. We often need more time to create content between end-of-year projects and planning for the new year.

And when we do find the time, it can be challenging to come up with ideas for what to post. So, how can we create content for December quickly and easily?

As a small business owner and content creator, I always look for different ways to write faster and more efficiently. Here are some of my favorite tips:

  • Write down all the topic ideas you can think of. And if you need help with where to find content ideas, read my blog article, where I share 18 top places to find amazing Social Media content ideas.
  • Each week, come up with a topic you’ll cover in your Social Media posts. Suppose you work in the weight loss industry. In that case, you can talk about the keto diet the first week of December, cardio the second week, and how to maintain your weight over the holidays the third week.
  • Use Canva graphic templates to create your visuals fast.
  • Content templates are also beneficial, so you don’t have to start from scratch each time.
  • Repurpose your old top-performing content and use it to create new posts. You can also do that with your blog articles and infographics.
