There are thousands of different excuses as to why people don’t create content every single day, it may be that they didn’t have time, or that they needed a professional to take the pictures, but the most recurrent one I hear is “I cant because I didn’t bring my laptop with me.”
We are living in a world where phones are as powerful as some laptops and you are going to tell me that you can’t write an article on a phone? That is pure BS if you ask me.
I’m not saying that you should go out and buy an expensive phone in order to start creating content on your phone (definitely not what I’m saying) but you could use it as a tool to make your content creation that much easier.
Every single phone has a notepad but people only write their grocery list and their new year resolutions in them.
I want you to use it to take note of the ideas for content you get throughout the day or to start writing an article if you don’t have a laptop laying around, are you going to write aster on the phone than on your laptop? I doubt that, but you will be using your time and resources better when you don’t have your laptop with you.
Don’t have a DSLR and a tripod lying around? Neither do I, I use my phone to take all of my pics so why can’t you do it?
Ask a friend to take your pictures and start learning how to take pics together, you will start creating content for your account AND you will have a blast with a friend. That’s a win/win scenario in my book.
We have to stop making excuses to not make content in a world where we should be making as much content as possible.
Sure, it takes time to do this, but there are sacrifices we all have to make in order to reach our goals and if one of yours is to have any sort of influence on social media then you should start creating more content right now, it doesn’t matter if it’s using a laptop, a phone or a fucking piece of paper.
Never underestimate the power of you phone, it can really up your game content wise.
