1. You NEVER know what to write
On most days you struggle to come up with blog post ideas and haven’t planned in advance what your content is going to be about. You're always looking to fill a publishing queu...more
I completed the most of the tasks while reading the book yet it wasn't one hour for sure. Still, I'm very happy with what I created there guided by Mira's advice. It's not smth magical what I discovered but as Meera herself says, it is not something unique and very new. It just helps to put the thoughts in order.
AND I loved the tone of the book. Usually these kind of books are annoying with these 'Do this and you'll ...more
The 1 Hour Content Plan totally delivered on Meera’s crazy promise of 1 year of content in an hour! Before I read it, I had a few ideas for blog posts on my business site, bu ...more
As a content creator, I primarily read this book to determine if there easier ways of refining my content production cycle. While the hook line of “Ideas in 60 Minutes” follows the current prevalent theme of over simplifying and under delivering ...more
I will re-read the book again to make sure I didn't accidentally skip some notes and will create a checklist to critically analyze each of my post before publishing. ...more
This is a book that anyone who has a blog, or is considering starting one up, should buy. After reading it, I was able to come up with over a year worth of blog post ideas-- and they had substance! I have struggled with getting my blog to "work." I was easily able to identity several things I've been doing wrong, as well as how to fix them.
The book not only covered content, but also how to develop the "voice" you want your audience to hear.
The thing ...more
For any intermediate or beginner level digital marketing person, this one is a recommended read.
I have planned out my content calendar using a couple of strategies mention in this book.
Hope to read more of Meera's work asap.
Do not rely on this book for writing advice. There are many excellent books out there about the art and craft of writing well. My reading history in Goodreads is peppered with many of those works, if you're interested.
The book appears not to have undergone any editing, or else the editor and typesetter did a poo ...more
Meera does a good job in going back to basic ...more
I thought I could skim through the content and make a mental note of the useful points. But I ended up creating an Evernote account just to jot down the tips and tricks.
Also, It isn't filled with technical jargons and mos ...more
The thing I disliked about the book was constant references to go download various forms and documents. The author didn’t merely do this as a convenience to help you print f ...more
I can’t say enough good things about this book. From the very first chapter, and the concept of the Driver Of Change, it’s giving you gold. Can you find this stuff elsewhere? Sure. But will you? We’ve been there. We learn plenty of info but lack the execution. This is where the worksheets and step-by-step nature of this book really helps. If you have ever tried (and failed) to get some focus around your blog posts and personal branding content, or have worked yourself t ...more
I've been blogging for a while now and I read this out of interest in hopes of developing a more coherent content plan...
The material is presented in a well thought out and clear manner, which made it an easy read.
I can see this as a book that would be of serious help to someone wanting to make money off their blog. However I'm more interested in growing my readership, and I found the information inside less useful in that respect.
That's not to say tha ...more
Look, generating blogging ideas is hard. Generating awesome blogging ideas is even harder. And trying to do it consistently without a well thought out process that doesn’t shackle your creativity is damn near impossible. You might be able to pull it off a couple of times, but on the long run it’s just unsustainable.
That’s why Meera’s book is so helpful. Without much fanfare she gets you up and running in no time. This is a quick read full o ...more
Like Meera herself mentions, most of the ideas talked about are totally new - in fact a lot of them are common sense even. But she’s done an amazing job of providing examples and ideas with her fill in the blanks, the kind of things you’d stare at the screen looking for PERFECTION. She especially helps those perfectionist by gently nudging them in a subtle way by helping them amplify what they already know and helps them beat the “analysis paralysis” - the planne ...more
I have been a fan of Meyer's blog for about a year but sometimes I get information overwhelm. This book ties so much together for me. I loved all the worksheets and how eye walks you through each. And the list of tools was so helpful too. I ordered her create planner as well.
I also recommend subscribing to her blog. All of her lead magnets are extremely valuable. I printed all of them and refer to them when I need to. This book is alot like her posts with how informative and helpful ...more
I read a lot of business books where the authors only purpose is to get you to join the email list. This lady is totally different. She offers REALLY valuable content. Easy to follow instructions and topics broken down into sensible sizeable chunks. I have highlighted so many useful tips in this book, it makes a book in itself. I have downloaded the great bonuses and really look forward to the wonderful stuff that drops in my inbox. If you are looking to make ...more
This is the 2nd book I read from Meera (the 1st being on email tips), and I was again far from disappointed. What Meera does in this book is provide us the tool that we can then use to produce and endless supply of content (as opposed to prescriptively telling her readers to only make a specific type of content). This alone is the most powerful aspect of the book - the rest lies on you to actually have an idea/business that you c ...more
This is not a deep dive for the seasoned writer but really an introduction to someone looking to start a blog. I came into with an active business, years of writing, and was initially let down. But once I accepted it was not a deep dive. I was able to start skipping through parts, highlighting some new nuggets to come back to, and finish pretty quickly.
The sections of creating content blocks, sub categories, etc I did find useful and can further help me to ...more
I am just starting out in the blogging world and I had an idea of what I wanted to do but didn't know how to actually do it. Four chapters in I have already defined my blog purpose, my ideal audience, and clarified my brand. This book gives definable steps that are easy to follow and understand. This is the book that every blogger who wants to succeed needs. ...more
The Digital Bonus (free download in author's site) is extremely useful.
This book is a must for those who want to start a successful blog. ...more
It's full of information and tips on how to create a content plan that keeps you producing new blog on a regular basis.
For me, I don't have an issue producing content, but there were a few good tips for me that will help me stay a little more focused on my blog's purpose.
So when I saw this book somewhere, I decided to buy it and see if it could help.
And boy, did it.
I now have a year's worth of content planned, not only for my blog, but for my vlog as well, all because this book helped me think about what I wanted to achieve with both.
I definitely recommend. ...more
This book is a great, stratification, and short read for anyone who plans and creates content. I learned new strategies for planning and organization to help put the pieces together, and I also felt great that this book confirmed that I’m already using some of the best practices in content planning, production, and promotion intuitively.
