In this essay, I’ll explain how and why to use ClickUp Up if you’re a blogger. It’s a truly remarkable tool. It’s completely free. It’s a project management platform that’s essentially a combination of Trello, Asana, and Airtable. It comes with a Kanban view. It has a lot of automation. Collaboration is simple. A Gantt chart with several perspectives is available. Although it doesn’t do spreadsheets nearly as well as Google Sheets, you can incorporate both Airtable and Google Sheets into ClickUp up to keep everything in one place. If you truly require the super spread sheet feature.
So you can probably tell ClickUp does a lot just from that tiny amount, but what it is is what exists, sort of, as part of a hierarchy structure. So your workstation is the most important factor. Even if you have numerous blogs, I recommend having one workspace so that you have a place to work. As a result, each blog might serve as a space. Blogger Breakthrough, for example, is a location.
My website, basicstodo.com, is a blank canvas. Then there are folders and lists within the spaces. So, folders are collections of lists, but you can also have a single list within a space. Then there are tasks within the lists, and each of those tasks can have subtests and subtasks. It’s possible to add attachments to it. It might be anything, including a description, custom fields, and so on. The tasks are amazing. Basically, you can make the task anyway you want it to be because of the way your brain works.
Let’s discuss about how to manage your blog with ClickUp. As I previously stated, I believe that each blog you have should be its own space. Then there’s me, who’s different. Within my Blogger Breakthrough area, I have a Content folder, and within that section, I have various lists. As a result, I have blog posts. If I’m writing guest posts for another website, I have guest posts. I’ve downloaded the podcast. I have a Facebook group that I manage, as well as a YouTube channel and weekly email broadcast.
Those are all different types of material. So, while I don’t want them all on the same list, I do want to be able to see them all in one spot. And all I have to do is click on the content folder. I also have a Funnels folder, but I also have a list of just keeping track of my promotion calendar and general information. Because each of those bits of content is unique, it has its own set of criteria. The capacity to create task templates, in my opinion, is where ClickUp really shines. So, in my blog post template, you know, do keyword research, write it in this tool, analyse it in this tool, then tweak it in this tool.
There are various steps, as you are aware. You can create a task and use a template to complete it. Even on the free plan, you may now do this manually or automatically. On the free plan, you get 100 automations per month. You can also set it up… When you add a new task to a list, it immediately applies a template, which is my favourite automation in ClickUp. So you won’t have to waste time remembering to apply the template because it will do it for you. As a result, it’s fantastic! And if your business grows and expands, you can truly get by with the free plan. Perhaps you’ll decide to upgrade. If you upgrade, you’ll have access to some fantastic features. I have a plan to upgrade.
So I’ll know how long everything will take. It’s simply beneficial to me. However, you don’t need it, especially if you’re not working with a group of freelancers or something like. ClickUp Up also has a couple of other features that I believe make it ideal for bloggers, the first of which is Docs. So you can compose docs in ClickUp up if you really only want to work in one spot. Right? Then you have the option of copying and pasting them into WordPress or exporting them. It’s quite simple to use.
It’s similar to writing in Google Docs. You may also set goals so you can see how close you are to finishing all of your material for the quarter or if you’ve met your revenue targets, so you can keep track of them within ClickUp. Then, if you’re looking at everything, ClickUpup has a view option that allows you to see everything.
So you have all of your chores from all of your spaces, which may be a lot, but they provide amazing search, sort, and filter features to help you figure out what’s what. If the duties are connected, you can also do so. So perhaps you’re creating a YouTube video to accompany a blog post, similar to what I’m doing here. You have the option of making the task related. You can link them together so that, even if they’re in various locations, you can see how they’re related. Okay, and then there’s recurring tasks, which I think is a fantastic tool for bloggers.
Isn’t it possible that each blog article will be a little different? It’s a different issue, but as a blogger, there are some tasks you do on a regular basis, such as checking and mending broken links, upgrading your plug-ins, backing up your site, and analysing your website’s statistics. You can set up a repeating task to ensure that you do them every month, week, quarter, or whatever schedule you require.
Finally, the Notepad, which I believe simply makes it better for bloggers, because sometimes you have an idea but it isn’t fully filled out. You’re not sure whether it’ll work or not. You don’t want to lose it, but you also don’t want to make a task out of it. As a result, you may utilise the notepad in ClickUp to simply type up your thoughts and thoughts.
Then, if you decide to make it a task later on as you expand on it or something, you can push a button and ClickUp will do it for you. So, in general, I think ClickUpUp is a fantastic project management tool. However, I believe it is ideal for bloggers who want to keep track of everything and ensure that they are producing high-quality content.
