Let’s start by looking at Blogging to generate content. Use an online tool that not only makes it easy to plan and assign blog content but also streamlines collaboration.
Here are some features to look out for:
• Multiple collaborators on a post
• Comments and reviewing
• Approval requests (so the right person can approve the post then publish it)
If you’re not already using a social media scheduler, now’s the time. When collaborating in an office, it’s easy to talk to a team member about publishing posts live right then and there. But when you’re remote, you really need to plan ahead so you can make sure you know who’s doing what and when. Use a social media publishing tool that allows multiple collaborators and includes a review and approval process.
Podcasts are one of the easier pieces of content to create remotely. While you don’t need a fancy recording studio, you do need it to be quiet. If you’re working with children at home, you might need to have someone distract them or have someone else on your team do the interviews. Or of course, let your kids be a special guest!

Besides human interruption, also pay attention to noise disturbances. While soundproofing your house, might not be a possibility, you can take care of the little things. For example, if you’re recording on your laptop, shut down all heavy programs so your laptop fan doesn’t kick on. You can also move away from windows that will add background noise.

If video is a big part of your strategy, then you absolutely can continue producing content even when working from home.
