I am a new author of two published books (memior and companion workbook). I wrote these books to inspire youth and young adults from all backgrounds, but primarily those of a disadvantaged and at-risk…(www.qianahicks.com). My goal is to inspire others, primarily youth and young adults, that they can still be great regardless of their less fortunate circumstances, past, or background. I hope that my books will be used in schools, outreach programs, corporations and organizations whose mission is to empower youth of all backgrounds, but especially of those with less fortunate, disadvantaged circumstances. I hope to become a highly sought after national speaker to upbuild and empower youth and young adults. I hope to become an advocate for youth, young adults who may be undergoing a family crisis, so that I can help Family Service Professionals and educators understand how they can best help them during this time. I also hope to become a best seller some day.
The two books that I have written can inspire others and make a positive difference in their life, but I have to be able to tell them how. By doing so, I have to build a presence for myself through various channels. The one I am most focused on right now is social media. I have created several social media accounts on the various platforms, but I need to know how to best utilize them and create the right content to interest my primary audience. I also have to continue to research and build followers of my target audience, which has been challenging, but slowly making progress. I want to captivate their attention with the information and testimony that I put out there that will hopefully get them interested in me as a speaker, interested in my books, etc. This will naturally start to open opportunities for me to become all of these things, so I hope.
I have some content/ideas that I've compiled already, and I'm sure I have more that I can produce, but I've it a roadblock where I don't know what content I should be creating. It's like I have writers block all of a sudden. For the life of me I can't figure out what topics I should be writing about, etc. I'm most afraid that I am sounding the same every time (which I'm not sure if this is good or bad), like I'm boring my audience, or like it's not adding any value, it's the same old mundane... I am also struggling with the creative side of posting the content (I.e. Incorporating photos or images, using apps to encapsulate the content within, etc.), how to properly blog, the right balance of content creation (I.e. 20% content from other sources, 80% of my personal content; should I have a mix of content such as articles that pertain to my market/niche, quotes, content from my books, blogs, inspirational messages, lessons learned messages, memes, etc.).
Once I have the right guidance and expertise to assist me, I'm sure I will have a breakthrough and be able to crank out content as if it was second nature.
This has become much harder than I had imagined, promoting my book and building my brand. It seems like my hopes and dreams of inspiring so many with my books, as a speaker, and mentor is so far fetched, but for some reason, my spirit will not allow me to give up and not keep trying.
I am just looking for some guidance (this may be a onetime consult/conversation) to help clarify what I need to write for my target audience. Is this something you can help with?
