Lay out Content Plan

- Focus on the promotions for this quarter
- Plan out blog posts/podcasts/videos of several points each to promote this month's promotions
Set end Goals
- How many of these products/services do I want/need to sell?
- How many big pieces of content will I create?
- How many emails will I send? And to whom?
Make a Plan: Set Due Dates for Goals
- When will I release the content? And when will I create it? Add it to your calendar and daily tasks.
- When will I send the email? And when will I create it? Add it to your calendar and daily tasks.
- When will I do live videos (to go deeper on one point or share announcements, or do Q and A) When will I advertise/promote the live? Add both to your calendar and daily tasks.
