Do you ever worry that you’ll irritate your audience if you write about too many different topics?
Here are 7 thoughts from others that helped my find some peace of mind.
Thought 1: Your smallest niche consists of people that are interested in all of your topics!
If you are interested in topic 1, 2 and 3 chances are high there are more people who are just like you.
Thought 2: Find the overlaps
Your topics might have more in common than you think. In my case Product Managers often are entrepreneurs in their company. And both #intrapreneurs and #founders tend to be interested in #productivity too.
Thought 3: Merge topics
Sometimes intersections of topics aren’t quite obvious. Then you can shine as a thought leader by applying the benefits of one field to another. This creates new concepts that can generate new added #value.
Thought 4: Let the fun guide you
By creating content in different areas, you will find out what you like to write about the most. #Enthusiasm will always be a natural and strong drive to keep going.
Thought 5: Let the data guide you
At the beginning, when you’re still looking for a focus topic, you should ensure #consistency. You’ll gather engagement data to determine which content is drawing enough interest to narrow the focus.
Thought 6: Embrace adaptability
Whether you call it “Scanner Personality”, “T-Shaped Personality”, “Allrounder”, “Full-stack whatever” or “Generalist”: Always remember the benefits of adaptability in an ever-changing environment like ours.
Thought 7: People follow you
We all know that we like authentic people. Would your content be just as successful if someone completely different posted it? People follow people not only because of the content. So remember that your personality has a strong influence in building an audience.
