One of the biggest challenges I hear when I work with business owners is ‘Where do I generate blog ideas from?’ My advice is always to take a look around you.
There are blog post ideas hidden everywhere, you just have to be open to them. For example, whilst browsing on Facebook this morning I saw a comment from a business owner who had just been nominated for a national award. There’s a couple of blog posts right there! For one, why were they nominated for the award? Who nominated them, was it a group of people, an individual, a client? What’s the significance of these awards? And also, if they win how will it impact their business?
It’s often easy to overlook the obvious, but it usually these types of posts that make them more appealing to the reader.
I often think of it in journalistic terms; who, what, where, when, why, how. The above award example is a perfect fit for that.
Perhaps you’ve recently had a breakthrough in your business? Think of the who, what, where, when analogy and you’ve got the bones of a blog post or 2 without having to stare at a blank page for hours!
Once you open yourself up to ideas you’ll find they pop into your head at the most inconvenient times. For me it’s just as I’m about to fall asleep! To combat this I’ve created a very easy Ideas Worksheet where you can capture your ideas as they pop into your head.
If you’d like to download the Ideas Worksheet you can here >>> http://eepurl.com/cKIaP1 and never get stuck on how to generate blog ideas again.
I would suggest you print off a few copies, once they start they just won’t stop!
