I know the feeling. You come into work, have a cup of coffee, settle into your seat and all of a sudden you go blank. All you have to do is write a few paragraphs on just about any topic and you are stuck! You can’t think of anything to write about. So you sit and sit hoping that something will pop into your head. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. Never get stuck again! Here are 6 Tips to Never Run Out of Blog Topics!
Revisit Your Old Blog Posts
Sometimes the best place to find inspiration comes from your old work. Find some of your top blog posts and write follow-ups. Take a couple bullet points and expand on them. Not only will this help you create more blog topics but will also help you drive more traffic to your site!
Think About Your Client’s Struggles
Write to solve your client’s problems. What issues does your client have? Come up with common problems in your client’s industries than create blog posts around those ideas. This is a great way to come up with blog posts and spread your wisdom!
Carry a Notebook
This is a little trick that everybody should be utilizing. Carrying a small notepad in your pocket is a great way to remember ideas that pop into your head while your on the bus or sitting in Starbucks. Some of the most creative people in the world carried notebooks around to draw images or jot down ideas at any time. Never have one of those “What was that idea I had early?” moments again.
Relate Big Stories to Marketing
Sometimes the best blog topics are right in front of your face. See what is popular or trending, what the news is talking about, or what Kanye did this week. Whatever it is I’m sure you can relate it to your industry!
This is something we have been taught to do since we were kids. Write down a bunch of words, anything that comes to mind, and then expand until you have a few great blog topics. Or try bouncing ideas off of a co-worker, building off of each other to create topic ideas.
Use the HubSpot Blog Topic Generator
