I’ve shared before about how one of the things I struggle with (aside from coming up with killer titles!) is knowing what to blog about. Considering I’m a successful VA who’s been in business since 2006 you would think I have lots to write about! I probably do if I sat down and really brainstormed some ideas. But instead I like to find lists that other people share of content ideas!
So I was tickled pink when I came across Piggy Makes Bank (if you haven’t ever checked them out, you should – they’re pretty cool peeps!) post 10 Things You Can Do To Make Sure You Never Run Out Of Ideas for Content.
One of the first things that caught my eye form their post was:
Think of it this way … the more content you have out there, the more potential customers and subscribers will find you and get to know you.
And then moving on to the list of 10 ways to make sure you never run out of content ideas, I was super excited about #2:
Browse Through Email Questions – Open up your email client and look through some of the emails you’ve gotten and responded to. You can often take one, edit it a bit and post it as a blog post. If you’re not comfortable doing that, use the questions and your reply as a starting point for a “how to” type blog post.
It’s funny. I’ve heard this mentioned before. And I even created a label in my Gmail account “FAQ” for questions people ask me. My intention is to set up a FAQ page on my website, I just haven’t done it yet. So it was kind of like a light bulb moment when I read this – it just kind of clicked this time when I saw/read it! I’m definitely going to do this (and of course still do the FAQ page on my site!)
What do you do when you run out of ideas for content?
Until next time…
