Do More With Less
Maximize Your Efforts
The BEST Content Hacks To Create More & Grow
For those of us who are managing more than just a blog in our lives (🙋♀️), we often find ourselves maxed out with time and resources to get everything we want done.
If you are limited to creating new content for your blog on nights, or only weekends, or partial days, I want to share a strategy with you that has helped me grow tremendously.
I have two EASY secrets that drive productivity.
Make an ‘Ingredient Recipe’
What is an ‘ingredient recipe’? It’s basically a recipe that creates an ingredient which is used in other recipes.
An example of this could be something like, vanilla sugar, or a spice rub, flavored oils or syrups, a sauce, aioli, broth, flavored proteins or grains that can be used in other dishes…
Typically ‘ingredient recipes’ are very easy to make and it can help you pump out more content easily!
By making one of these recipes and using it in another recipe, you instantly doubled your productivity and outcome.
Why This Works So Well
This strategy saves time, energy, food costs - making 2 completely different recipes can take up a lot of time. If you integrate 2 recipes together, using one to create the other, you can save money on buying ingredients and the amount of work that goes into making the recipe
You can double up on photos - Pair both recipes together in your photo & video content and easily create different shots to use on both posts (you’ll probably only have to set up your food photo scene once!) This highlights your ‘ingredient recipe’ and also the other finished dish.
It increases traffic
YES! Double duty recipes can create an INSTANT traffic boost!
In order for the reader to make the second recipe, they need to visit the page of the ‘ingredient recipe’ to learn how to make it.
And if they’re on the ‘ingredient recipe’ page first, they will naturally gravitate to any other linked pages where you use the finished product in other recipes.
Generate More Photos Using Existing Pix
Another hack for doing more with less, is using existing photos to create new shots.
It can get really stressful to get creative with different angles and perspectives when taking photos of ‘ingredient recipes’ (or any recipe!). They can be a bit one dimensional and boring.
I’ve run into this issue before and I wanted to share this reminder on how you can alter your photos to generate more photos to fill up your blog post.

Master Your Mindset
It’s important to find ways to integrate solutions like this to avoid burnout.
I love these types of recipes because they can really boost your productivity without adding a lot more to your plate, and they are usually so easy that it makes it more approachable to push out new content even faster on your blog, propelling your following and income!
