Whether you’re trying to come up with ideas for your blog, your website, or articles you plan to post around the Web, you need to come up with some ideas for that content. How do you do that? In other words, where do you get ideas for your content?
Ideas come from a lot of different places. The first place you should look is your referral log. Where is your traffic coming from? More importantly, what keywords are people using to find your website?
Pick a few of those keywords. Try to focus on the most profitable ones. Google them and see what pops up in the search. Go through the first three pages of the SERPs and write down the specific topics you find that other people are writing about related to your keywords. Is there anything people aren’t writing about? Write about that.
Another thing you can do is talk to your customers. What kinds of questions are they asking? What are their concerns? Address those.
If you get any strange or out-of-the-ordinary requests, those are good topics to write about. Anything you can do to make your content and your business unique is a good thing. Strange customer requests is something that can help you do that.
Good content ideas are all over the place. You just have to learn to recognize them. Talk to your customers, your vendors, and other professionals in your niche. If people are talking about it, then it’s a good idea for your content.
