While it’s tempting to start with the features of the event, I know what you’re really interested in is the potential transformation i.e. what kind of results can you expect if you attend.  So first off, I’ll give you a quick overview of the event. Then I’ll share some success stories of people who attended the event last year.

About the event

2021 Sorted is my annual content planning event for coaches, creatives and entrepreneurs. The event is taking place on November 3 & 4. The aim of the event is to take the pain out of content planning – by giving you the accountability and support to create your 2021 content plan, live at the event.

It’s also about getting inspired. Which is why the event also features talks/workshops from some of the world’s leading content creators on how to plan and create engaging content that will help you generate sales for your business.

The event – which usually takes place in person – is now in its fifth year. And while it has moved online this year, due to government restrictions on large gatherings, it’s meant we can host more speakers and more sessions (more on that later).

With over £800 of content…investing in a 2021 Sorted ticket offers insane value – and support for the WHOLE of 2021 – and not just at the event.

What kind of results can you expect from attending the event?

The number 1 reason people keep coming back to my content planning masterclass,  year after year, is because they save tons of time – by getting their content plan created for the year, in just a couple of days.

Your 2021 Sorted ticket includes both a physical and digital version of my 2021 Social Media Diary & Planner. Which is not just a pretty-looking diary. It’s a content planning tool that includes step-by-step instructions on how to create your annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily content plans…and includes templates and checklists to help you stay on track, throughout the year. PLUS hundreds of awareness days and key dates you can use to generate content ideas.

This is what hospitality expert Mark Simpson has to say about the content planning strategies I teach at 2021 Sorted and how they have helped him. 

 

But it’s not just about saving time. Showing up more consistently with your content – content that is well-thought-out – rather than rushed out at the last minute – can make a huge difference to the bottom line of your business.

Attending last year’s Content Planning event inspired Amy Caiger to launch a podcast. She has now published 30 episodes and it’s helped her land speaking gigs, guest podcast interviews and more clients. This is what she has to say about how the event helped.

Attending last year’s event helped journalist and publicity expert Rachel Spencer launch a membership site and generate recurring income for her business – she’s on target to reach over £20k. Here’s what she had to say about how attending the event has helped her.

What’s included in your 2021 Sorted ticket?

FAQs

I’m not sure if 2021 Sorted is right for my business

If you need to plan and create engaging content about your business in 2021 and beyond, 2021 Sorted can help (and yes that does include both product and service-based businesses).

There is a full list of the types of businesses it can help on the sales page for 2021 Sorted (and examples of the types of businesses who’ve attended in the past) but the bottom line is this.

If you need to create and plan content…it will work for you/your business. The only question you need to be asking about this…will you do the work to make it all happen?

I don’t have time to attend 2021 Sorted 

Taking a couple of days out of your business to plan out your content will save hours of time in the long run. So the real question here is: do you really have time NOT to?

I’m not in the UK and some of the sessions are a bit early/late for me

That’s no problem…as you’ll get all the recordings.

I’ve tried content planning before and it didn’t work

Just because you tried something and it didn’t work, that doesn’t mean it will never work. I joined and left five gyms before I found one that suited me (and an exercise habit that stuck). And I’ve seen exactly the same thing happen with people who say that can’t do content planning.
