If you write or blog or or do anything that requires creativity with words then you already know, sometimes its damn hard to come up with content, right?
That’s what its formally known as.
I’m not 100% immune to it, but creeps up on me every once in a while, but only if I haven’t done any of the things that I’m about to share with you.
Early on, one of the people I respect most in Internet Marketing, Jason Fladlien, taught me how to come up with things to write about for any situation, especially for product creation and blog content.
The process was simple, and I tweaked it to make it my own.
If you’re into info marketing and you want a real easy easy to come up with things to write about simply look up questions that people have posted on places like Quora, Yahoo Answers or Social Media Groups.
This along with the simple content creation strategies and tactics that you have available to you below is essentially all I do, nowadays.
I simply look up pain point and passionate problems that people are genuinely expressing frustration with and then I write up a solution, assuming I know the answer, and that’s how I come up with the stuff I’m going to write about that day on my blog.
Some other places to refer to when thinking about what to write about include niche forums, news sources, and magazine headlines.
To make this even easier, or to take it up a level and have ideas to write about for at least the next 100 days or so, use this technique I was given by another great marketing mind, Sean Mize, called the 10 x 10 matrix:
Write 10 topics you’re interested in and then under each topic write 10 subtopics. These subtopics might pose the headline question for which you will write up a story, an answer piece article or whatever you think you might write about.
Here’s an example for someone that might say, run a dog training blog:
- Why mixed breeds are healthier than pure breeds
- What do you get when you cross a chihuahua with a pitbull?
- Why do some breeds come in huge and tiny varieties?
- Which breed has the longest average life span?
Do you see how easy yet powerful this exercise is?
Now that you know the secret…you should have no excuses coming up with content to write about for at least the next 3 months.
