Getting Around Content Block

If you currently have a blog or thinking of getting one started one of the most difficult things is probably coming up with content that is valuable and appealing.

You could have valuable content but if doesn’t appeal to anyone then you may not be getting the target audience your hoping for.

So how do you do this? How can you get content or continue to come up with fresh content day in and day out?

I don’t have the ultimate answer for you but I do have some strategies that may help you come up with content on a steady basis for your blog. Of course the more you do this the better you get at it and the easier it becomes.

As you may already know one of the most crucial things in writing content is identifying your target. Who are you trying to communicate with, who is going to read it, who can relate to it and so on.

What I want to cover is some quick steps that you can take in getting some content going immediately. As you develop your style and writing skills it should be easier to do. But sometimes you still get stuck. And for all you pros out there, you know what I’m talking about. At least I hope so.

Here are some steps to consider when you run into a writers block and are looking for content to write about.

1.Make a list of what you want to discuss in your blog. You may want to talk about mlm, recruiting, best type of prospects or the worst type of prospects and so on. The point is not to necessarily come up with the title right away, just write down what you got in mind. Then do an extremely rough draft about it. Just let the ideas flow. You could always edit and polish it up later.

2.Grab some free training on line. There is tons of free training that can help your creative juices flow into writing your blog. Look at some of the techniques that are used and try to put them into your content. Pro blogger is a pretty good resource for some great tips on blogging. Check them out if you get a chance.

3.Outsource your blog content. I would use this if you’re extremely busy or you just plain can‘t come up with anything. You are basically hiring someone to write on a topic that you want to share. You could also use this as a learning reference when you are doing your own writing. This is cool I think when you want to get something on your blog but you still want to work on your own skills. That’s my personal opinion.

4.Share some of your experiences. We all have experiences whether in mlm, sponsoring, cold calling, getting set up; working your regular job and lessons you may have learned from those experiences. If you have a journal that’s a gold mine for blog content as long as you can relate it to your target market.

5.Your company’s web site. There is huge amount of training and information you can discuss in you blog that can relate to mlm, lead generation, team building. Also the webinars’ that are held with a great deal of information that you can filter that to your prospects through your blog.

6.Study other content. Look at what other people are writing and the style they are using and the message they are delivering. But don’t plagiarize; you’ll get in trouble for that. When you study other blogs you can grab some ideas that the information has given you. Like questions they may have not answered through out their content. That question can be a topic for your future blog.

These are just a few ideas that can help you come up with content. As you can see we can go on with other areas and resources to find content. When you read this you might have gotten some ideas already.

One of the key ingredients is taking the steps to get it going and keep it going. Remember the more you do it the easier it becomes and the better you get.

I hope you have found this post to be helpful in providing ideas for your next blogs post and if you can be so kind as to leave a comment.
