Blogging Success: Do You Need Ideas for Your Blog?
If you are blogging daily, it may sometimes be difficult to come up with fresh ideas to write about. Here are my top 3 resources to generate ideas, topics or even partly completed content for a blog.
1. Information product sales letters
If you're browsing sales pages related to your niche, you can easily find topics to post in your blog for weeks. Check out the bullet points that you provide information about the content of the product or program and write down things that come to your mind. It really does not matter what the original intent of a particular point was, you have a vision of your own about it and you can post that vision in your blog.
Most sales letters contain about a dozen details about the product or program and describe its benefits, but my ultimate finding was actually a sales letter with 152 bullet points, each and every one of them worth writing about, because it happened to be my niche. Sometimes it does not need to be same niche as yours, but you can still find brilliant ideas. For example writers can use practically anything from dog training to dating tips as their starting point.
I suggest you keep a swipe file and start taking notes of all the benefits, profits and advantages, which will be perfect material not only for your blog posts, but also for the sales letters of your own. Some bullet points are actually so compelling and well written, that you can even use them as headlines, already done-for-you.
Go to Pinterest and search for infographics. The selection is massive, and so is the variety of niches. You can pick any topic and write about it from your standpoint. It does not need to be the same as described in the infographic, but it can also be a complete opposite and everything in between. Still, if you want to, in most cases you can use the original image in your blog post as well. Just remember to link it to the original source if you know what that is. Usually you find that information from the infographic itself.
Another source of endless inspiration in Pinterest is the quotes. I would advise you to store those on your own Pinterest board and browse them every once in a while.
3. Polls and surveys
Any time you get an invitation to contribute to a survey, you should accept it. Especially those made by famous teachers and gurus in your niche tell you a lot about the current trends on the market and they always make great topics to write about.
