Hey, this is Sasha and welcome to another episode here on backstage income where I share with you how to build and grow a profitable business.
In today’s episode, I’m going to share with you how to make sure you stick to your YouTube schedule or publishing schedule if you’re doing a blog and never miss a week.
Understand your Schedule
If we look at your schedule, you have to first start with a posting schedule.
Everybody posts at different times of the week. Everybody’s got their own little schedule that they want to stick to.
Once you defined your schedule, there are two big tips I want to share with you.
Tip number one: Batch
I have my list of videos ready to go. I don’t go off of a script or anything. I just make them on the fly.
Figure out how to cut the slack and batch things.
Tip number two: Check Ahead
The second thing you want to do is to check yourself and make sure you’re actually hitting your say schedule ahead.
What I mean by looking at ahead is you’re always a two-week timeframe ahead. For some people, it’s a four-week timeframe. For other people, it’s a six-week and some it’s like a three-month timeframe ahead.
So, how far ahead do you want to do that check ahead?
If you’re going a month ahead — let’s say you’re in January and you’re starting January, that also means you’re starting your next filming for February. You’re doing your February because January needs to be already filled up.
Once you’re in February, that should already be done, you should already be getting into March and starting to film for March or doing it like that.
That’s my two big tips.
When you do the batching
It’s all about just doing things at the same time
The reason for this:
- You don’t have to do any setup for your cameras and video equipment
- You don’t have to dump memory cards — if that’s the way you’re doing
- You don’t have to plug in wires when you’re working on this
- You don’t have to set up the lighting
You do it all in one set or one time and you’re getting a bunch done.
When you look at tip number two — we look at checking ahead
You’re always looking at your schedule ahead.
If I’m getting here and my schedule needs to go into the next month, I need to start already filming right here or right here and start concluding this month because I always want to be let’s say four weeks ahead. The goal is I’m always four weeks ahead.
Technically, if I’m only three weeks ahead, I’m behind. Because I always want to be four weeks ahead.
I’m setting my bar that my due date is four weeks. I want to be four weeks ahead.
This is how you get ahead and stay ahead.
That’s ultimately how you do it. Hopefully, this gave you some thoughts and insights into working on your calendar. Number one do the batching and number two go ahead and check yourself ahead and set that as your baseline bar.
Hopefully, your mind was blown but if not, I hope you enjoyed the tip.
