TYPES OF CONTENT FOR YOUR REIKI PRACTICE

To run a successful Reiki practice, it’s useful to develop aspects of your business that help support your central work of client care. These aspects can include providing educational material as well as supporting products and services that supplement your direct client work.

These supplemental products and services might include:

Additionally, as you create administrative and marketing materials for your business, you need to utilize software that helps you create and store this material. Once you decide on the type of content that you want to create for your Reiki practice, you need to choose software to write in. Most people have access to a word processing program such as Microsoft Word, however, a number of programs exist that provide word processing features in addition to other features that make creating content more dynamic.

This blog post covers two options of software (Evernote and Scrivener) that can provide what you need to develop content for your Reiki practice.

EVERNOTE

Evernote is a software program for creating content as well as storing important information. These features are what make Evernote a more dynamic product than Microsoft Word. You can create your content from a blank template or use the various features of Evernote to collate content from external sources. Evernote can store various types of content including text, audio, video, images, pdfs. Other useful features within Evernote include hyperlinking, checklists, formatting, reminders, voice memos, table of contents creator, and more. Evernote is a comprehensive program for your digital content creation and storage.

You can also share content that you create in Evernote both privately and publicly. Evernote is a web-based program and therefore your data is synced and accessed across multiple devices at any time. You can work both offline and online with Evernote so an internet connection is not essential to using Evernote.

The basic premise of Evernote is to create a document called a ‘Note’. You can then organize these notes into notebooks which are Evernote’s term for folders. You can organize your notes based on your criteria whether you are using a project-based system, calendar system, or list of topics.

In some of our blog posts, we offer a free Evernote download. These templates can be freely accessed by clicking the links in each post and then saving them to your Evernote account to use in the future.

  • Link your Evernote account to WordPress. (use IFTTT recipe, CoSchedule Plugin, or copy/paste your content)
  • Set to-do lists and reminders

Evernote offers many useful features to record, store, and recall content.

SCRIVENER

Scrivener is a software program that is used to create written content. Scrivener is similar to Microsoft Word, however, it provides a more robust content management system for your content writing.

When using Microsoft Word, you usually create one document where the content is created sequentially and focuses on a single topic. When you want to write about another topic or work on a new project, you then create a separate Word document.

Each new document has to be managed as multiple separate files on your computer. You also have to remember the content that you created in each file or otherwise open each file until you find the content you want.

This process is better managed in Scrivener where all of your content and multiple projects remain stored within one master file. Your Scrivener master file works similarly to a filing cabinet where you can create folders and subfolders. This enables you to keep your projects separate from each other, yet easily access each project as they are contained within the one master file. You only need to manage one file which makes it easier to back up or transfer your file between computers.

Below is a snapshot of a Scrivener project. It is the Admin Package we have available in the store. On the left-hand side of the image, you can see an outline of the file structure. Each name that you can see on the left-hand side represents a separate writing file that you can click into and access your content.
