Do you struggle to keep content running on your blog?
Social Media platforms are full of talented and creative people. Not everyone excels at the same things, though, do they? Some folks have an easy time coming up with topic ideas for blog posts while others need to hire help because their writing skills are less-than-desirable.
One blog owner may find it easy to slap together videos for YouTube while the next blog owner struggles to find the ‘on’ button.
There are multiple options available now for content generation: producing your own, networking, asking for guest material, buying content and so on.
Consider the numerous ways in which you can get content onto your pages. Here are a few ideas:
- Fact-based articles
- Storytelling pieces
- Humor pieces
- Videos that offer advice or DIY activities
- Guest articles from friends/colleagues
- Q&A pieces
- Compare/Contrast images
What do you excel at? You can focus in on what YOU are great at and run with it. Become a go-to in your niche. If you excel at several content streams, use a variety of options on your blog! If you feel most comfortable with one stream, mix things up as best you can to keep the content fresh and appealing.
