Anytime I hear about anything that will help me with my content creation and planning I get excited.
Plus, you know me and how much I love new tools.
I do have a confession to make, though, I haven’t spent as much time as I want to in Airstory. As I’ve been streamlining things in my business I’ve started spending more time ‘cleaning’ things up. So right now everything is a process. It doesn’t make a ton of sense to jump into new things before I’ve made space for them.
My initial interest in Airstory was because of needing to create a content strategy for LeadSurveys (still working on that one). I came across Airstory through Producthunt and as soon as I saw who was behind the app (Joanna Wiebe & Lance Jones of Copyhackers), I knew it was something I wanted to try.
Who would be better at putting together an app for organizing content and writing than a writer?
I’ll definitely do a follow-up post with how I’m using Airstory and what is working for me (truth: this might take a little longer since I’m approaching my content from a different perspective. In other words, taking more time to create more in-depth content. I’ll still produce some quick posts when the mood strikes me, but I want to go deeper most of the time).
Let’s jump into the interview
