How can you use spark file for creating personal content?
You should always maintain a running list of the article ideas and mark them when you write them. There are times when a specific thing which seem to be a great idea should be taken note of. But once you check your list, you see that it’s not worth doing for a number of valid reasons. Nevertheless, you may still keep those ideas in the spark file if something better comes out of it later. You need to be careful about the needs of the clients so that you can easily be able to deliver what they need through the content that you write.
You can also note down all sorts of ideas that you have for your client and the ideas which the client have for you. This way you will find out something good that your competitor has been doing for a long time now. In short, you need to keep track of everything.
It is not only about keeping notes, it is all about being more and more organized about keeping notes. This is the best way in which you can keep getting new ideas and shaping it into good content.
