Running out of ideas for online content? Here are some sources of content inspiration.
Poll Your Audience
Whether you do a formal poll to ask for ideas or just ask questions, your audience is a great source of content ideas. What do they want to know? What do they need? You can’t go wrong if your content focuses on things your audience cares about.
Check Google Data – Analytics and Search Console
Google Analytics and Google Search Console are not just about metrics. They show you what people care about and what they are searching for.
Write content related to your most popular content. Be sure to link the content together to give your readers all the information you offer.
Google Search Console data shows you the search queries people use that your site ranks on. These are all content ideas.
Do Keyword Research
Tale a look at your keywords, or do a new search to get a fresh list. All of your keywords are great content topics.
Try an Idea Generator
There are several free online tools that give you content ideas. Give one or more of them a whirl and see if they offer any inspiration.
Tap Into Holidays and Special Days
Days Of The Year collects all the funny, bizarre and nice holidays the world has. These can be great inspiration. Even a look at the standard holiday calendar can generate ideas for related content.
Take a Walk
Sitting behind a desk and staring at your screen can be soul sucking. Change your surroundings. Take a walk inside or outside. Or, find another way to clear your head. Relax and think about something else for a while to make room for some new ideas.
