The Power of Templates
Some people hear the word “template” and get worried that a template will interfere with their creativity. In fact, just the opposite is the case. All the studies confirm that not only do templates not interfere with creativity, templates actually enhance creativity.
Well, for one thing, you don’t ever have to stare at a blank screen or a blank piece of paper again. Simply use the template to unleash your content as you fill in the blanks.
Dictionary.com defines a template as: anything that determines or serves as a pattern; a model.
And that why you can create so much more quality content with templates.
If you’ll notice, this article is created using a template called the “Are You Ready?” Template. It follows these 3 simple and repeatable steps:
Step 1: Name a trend that is happening and ask if your prospect is ready for it. Being able to name a trend identifies you as an expert in your field without you having to scream “I’m an expert in my field!”
Step 2: Back up your statement about how your prospect needs to be ready for these new developments. If you can tie the new trend to what has already been happening, that’s even better.
Step 3: Give your prospect an immediately useable slice of what they need to do to get ready. I call this giving your prospect a gold nugget of immediately useable information with your content.
