Maybe you’ve heard that there’s nothing new under the sun. That may or may not be true but it will depend on you and your creative juices. In order to find new ideas for posts that your readers will love, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel – just discover unique ways to make it roll better. Here are five ways that will assist with generating post topic ideas for your blog.
Digital is Where it’s At
Technology has propelled not only personal growth but business growth into the stratosphere. The earth has gotten that much smaller because of it. Just think – without the Internet, your blog wouldn’t have the potential to reach millions who otherwise might not have heard of the great things you have to offer. Of course, without the internet your blog wouldn’t even exist, but that’s beside the point. The clincher however is that even though technology has brought potential readers closer, the key is still using marketing savvy to give them what they want.
5 Things You Can Do To Think Of New Post Topics
- Jot down your ideas – This is always going to be a first step. Get everything out of your head and in a space where you can analyze, pick apart and reassemble your ideas in order to come up with a workable list of topic ideas. Include any burning interests and avenues that you are passionate about.
- Poll your readers – Take a look at your current subscriber and reader base. How do they like your blog posts? What more would they like to see? Poll the readers on your blog or on your social media platforms. Put those email addresses and follows to good use. Set up an online survey that can be accessed through email and text. Use contents as incentives for participation.
- Look to your competition – Find other blogs within your niche and examine what they are doing. Zero in on what their audience likes most about their blog and see how their feedback can be applied to your readers.
- Use social media – We’ve discussed surveys but what about a contest. Use your audience as a crowdsourcing tool. An example: Set up a Pinterest board where readers can create pins reflecting what they would like to see as your “next big idea.”
When it comes to creativity, use as many avenues as you can to aid the brainstorming process.
