5 tips to stay inspired
1. Begin with what you are passionate about
Creative blocks are common for beginners struggling to come up with ideas.
“The creative process is like a journey of self-discovery, so it’s crucial to know yourself first and the relationship with your content. As you create more content, always bear in mind not every video or content will perform the best, which is okay! We are just humans and need time to reset.”
— Shaan Jahagirdar, the Vice President at the global software company Wondershare, believes that creators should simply start with what they are most familiar with, good at, or what’s most easily accessible.
A creator is anyone who creates: influencers, YouTubers, bloggers, and podcasters, but so are craft-makers, musicians, writers, photographers, and everyone in between. Being a creator is ultimately a way to show the world your talents, and potentially monetize them. It’s your passion that drives you forward, after all. Have fun with it!
2. Time management is key
Apart from building a routine, use your time wisely.
3. Find a community
It is important to have references, and people that you like and inspire you. When creators encounter challenges, they turn to other creators for advice. Experienced content creators have been in beginner creators’ shoes, so they have plenty of valuable insights to share.
4. Try new creative tools to help you stand out
The next step is to think about how to make your content stand out in the digital world where information is easily accessible. When it comes to picking creative tools, features that beginner creators should look out for are video editing templates, and advanced editing functions such as keyframing and audio tracks yet with a low learning curve.
5. Get your work out there to be seen
Don’t be shy, your creation is meant to be shared!
Tech giants understand the top-heavy creator economy is extremely competitive, and hence, they rolled out a generous amount of incentives for creators worldwide:
— YouTube launched the Creator Fund (worth u$s100 million)
— Linkedin invested $25 million into creators with its Creator Accelerator Program
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
