Are you running out of content ideas? Are you pondering, “How to generate ideas for content?”
Today I will give you three powerful steps which will guarantee that you will not run out of the content ideas anymore.
First, I will give you the most powerful one
1. Create Content Daily, Publish Daily
“WHAT!?!?!? HOW COULD I PUBLISH DAILY AS I AM ALREADY RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS??”
Let me explain.
When you set yourself a goal to publish something daily in your website/blog, you force yourself to create something. You force yourself to learn.
You are not pushing yourself to learn if you just create content when you just “feel like it”.
When I was writing one post per week I just managed do that but sometimes I felt like running out of the ideas. Then at some point, I decided to try publishing EVERY SINGLE DAY. It was a crucial breakthrough.
Now as I am publishing content every day I feel that new ideas come automatically. I never feel like running out of ideas.
Before I felt that posting once a week was sometimes challenging but now I know that publishing every day is not too hard if you get used to it. Publishing every day will put your brain into a “mode” when it seeks ideas from the environment. That’s power!
I admit that publishing daily is quite an “extreme” but you can try it for example for one week and see how it works for you.
In a nutshell
- Write every day. It will become your second nature.
- Publish every day (at least answering comments on your website).
- Push your limits and reach your potential.
- You can make a test how many texts you can produce in one day (Remember also the quality, not only the quantity).
2.Study Your Niche Daily
One successful online entrepreneur was teaching about the online business and content creation. He saw how some people just study, study and study while they are never doing anything. Working, working and working it’s not good neither. You need to have a balance!
His rule of a thumb was:
Use 50% for content creation (writing, making videos, etc.) and 50% for content consumption (studying your niche)
It’s very hard to generate new ideas for content if you are not studying your subject at all.
As you begin writing something every day, it’s also important to study every day.
“But how do I have time for all that?? How can I write every day and study every day???”
That’s actually quite simple
If you have 1 hour, use 30 minutes for studying and 30 minutes for content creation.
If you have 2 hours, use 1 hour for studying and 1 hour for content creation.
When you study your subject daily you will always get new inspiration, new ideas and expand your knowledge. Little by little you will become the expert in your niche.
If you are really serious about your online business, you will use much more than 2 hours every day. If you want to succeed fast, you will use 8 hours every day. And I don’t mean using 8 hours scrolling Facebook’s or Twitter’s news feed. I mean that using 8 hours doing the real work!
Here are some tips that you can do to study your niche
- Search the blogs/channels from the niche experts
- Talk with the people who are working in your niche (in forums, in social media or “in the real life”)
- Think about the things that you want to learn in your niche. -> Write them down -> Search for the answers (-> Write a tutorial for others)
3.Be Open for the New Ideas
This is one extremely powerful!
There may be two persons. The other one sees the opportunity and gets the idea while the other one doesn’t see anything. It’s a mindset thing. Some people are always willing to learn and they see opportunities everywhere. Some people just live this life without seeing the ideas and opportunities around them. -> Be the one who sees the ideas and puts them into action.
As you study your niche be always open for the new ideas and write them down.
Don’t only sit in front your computer watching a webinar or an article but make notes at the same time. You can use the good old pen and paper or type the ideas straight to your computer.
Then after watching or reading the teaching you have already generated some new ideas for content.
And as you have generated new ideas put them into action.
The success comes to those who work for it.
Be open for the new ideas
- Keep the pen and paper with you (or use your mobile phone/iPad/laptop) to write down the ideas
- Write down ideas right away when you get it.
- Have the attitude, “Let’s see what new I am going to learn and create today.”
- Put your ideas powerfully into action as fast as you can!
