Top 3 Blog Post Ideas Every Blogger Should Know
For some, producing blog post ideas can be a frustrating and a time consuming process.
Even so, we also know how critical they are to our business and why we need to consistently brain storm for new ideas.
Good blog post ideas, to an online business, is like wings on a airplane – right?
So let’s face it, if we’re not producing content consistently we have NO chance of producing the momentum we need to propel ourselves skyward.
3 Blog Post Ideas that will attract more readers, and help you build a bigger audience…
Discovering Blog Post Ideas #1.
Industry Trends/News… Be one of the first to report on what happening now in your niche.
You can set up a “Google Alert”, within your gmail account, and receive instant access to the latest trends in your niche.
This strategy benefits you in 2 ways…
- It gives you great blog post ideas
- People who are the first to write about a new trend are usually looked upon as the experts. (An insider)
You can also spice up your blog posts, and develop new ideas by incorporating top news stories.
I read a popular marketing blog. When Tiger Woods was struggling with his game in 2010 he made “headline news” consistently. The reports where about Tiger’s swing and his new coach.
My friend piggy-backed on the Tiger Woods story, and used it in a blog post about finding the right coach.
(NOTE… To pull this off you have to know your audience, but it’s a very powerful strategy, especially when you’re struggling with blog post ideas).
Discovering Blog Post Ideas #2.
Blog Research… Go to your top competitors blog and see which blog posts get the most comments. This indicates the audience interest.
You can usually find this information in the right “side-bar” area. It will usually say… “most popular posts.”
Take a look at the most popular posts and see how you can piggy back on these blog post ideas. Does it spark any new insights? Maybe you can add another element or a step by step process that explains the concept more clearly or concisely.
Discovering Blog Post Ideas #3.
Video Research… Go to Youtube. Type in your keywords and see which videos, in your niche, get the most views.
Videos with a lot of views is a great indication of a relevant topic. A topic your audience is very interested in and would probably like to know more about.
Then you can either create a video of your own, or create blog post ideas based on your findings.
NOTE: The key to great content starts with knowing your audience and what they want. This leads to a bigger audience and a hell-of-a-lot more traffic.
