The 4 Stages of the Content Factory

The Content Factory is a four-stage strategy designed to maximize the use of your best content across various platforms. The four stages are: Produce, Process, Post, Promote.

In summary, these four stages start with long-form content such as a recording from a podcast, webinars, etc. 

We then use the transcript to create blog posts, e-books, etc. We also create snippets to post on various platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, etc. - the possibilities are endless. 

From there, we find the winners and boost them to gain the most leverage from the winning content.

Now, let’s go through all the four stages one by one, in more detail.

Stage 1: Produce


The first stage, "Produce," requires business owners to actively create new content based on their expertise. 

This involves recording various forms of content, from photos and videos to hosting Zoom sessions and crafting social media posts tailored to a specific audience. 

Content can be captured during different activities—events, conferences, workplace gatherings, or even a casual lunch with your team—and uploaded to platforms like iCloud, Google Photos, or Dropbox. 

This material forms the basis of the Content Factory, hence needs to be of the highest quality. It is then processed by virtual assistants (VAs) through the remaining three stages of the Content Factory to create the desired impact and establish the business owners’ authority in any particular industry.  

Remember, the higher the quality of the original videos and podcasts, the better will be the processed content and the resulting impact.

Stage 2: Process


Virtual Assistants (VAs) handle tasks in the second stage of the Content Factory, by processing the content “Produced” in the first stage with AI tools like Descript and ChatGPT. 

Descript helps in extracting the transcript to convert into articles, blog posts and ebooks, with the assistance of ChatGPT (using intelligent prompts and active listening). What is active listening and why does it matter?

We can also use Descript to extract several snippets from the original videos, for social media and other channels. 

We then place all this “processed” or “repurposed” content in a Google Sheet we call the Content Library.

Stage 3: Post


After the original content has been processed into several different pieces of content, we publish or "Post" this in various places, such as your website, social media channels, YouTube, and other places.

Stage 4: Promote


The best content is then boosted using our Dollar a Day method. We also use a neat trick during this stage, to generate influence. It is called the "Thank You Machine." 

This is based on the concept that: It’s not what you say about yourself that matters but what others say about you. You gain authority and trust by making a positive impact on your community. 

Every entrepreneur needs a Content Factory to handle 99% of the work to edit, distribute, boost, and optimize their content.

Then, we only need to spend 1% of our time producing it.

By interviewing clients, sharing knowledge, hosting a podcast, and nurturing relationships, your Content Factory gets the work off you – whether you are a solopreneur or running a large enterprise.
