Setting Up and Using Google Drive for your Content

Once you have downloaded your checklist template, we recommend Google Drive as your file storage option.

  1. Create a Google Folder: Once you have created your folder, give it a name for identification.
  1. Organise your folders: Within the folder, create other folders that will store your other article files.

We arrange our content folders according to the content creation process.

  1. Ideas: This folder holds any ideas we may come up with for our blogs and articles. The idea may simply be a word, phrase, or sentence at this point.
  2. Drafts: In this folder, we have articles in the first stage of creation. The article may have a draft outline and points, before research.
  3. Research: This folder contains all the research material done about an article.
  4. Writing Content: This folder contains articles in the content writing phase.
  5. Editing: This is where we keep all our articles going through the editing process.
  6. Published: All of our published articles and their content materials, like videos and images, are kept in this folder.
