High-quality content creation is a fantastic way to boost traffic to your site. But when you create content for your website on a daily basis it can become difficult to find fresh inspiration and topics to write about on such a regular basis. If you feel as if you have reached that stage where you are running out of blog ideas and inspiration, try these three tips listed below to revitalize your content plan:
1. Mix ideas from old articles you have written
A huge part of the high-quality content creation process is about using your imagination. Essentially this involves recycling old content and turning it into fresh new content. Scan through old content to see if there is anything you can rewrite with a slightly different spin. Perhaps you wrote a previous article in a very positive light - now is the time to turn that positive article into a negative article, or vice versa.
For example, if the original post was titled 'Content Marketing Tips You Need to Try' you could reposition the article as: 'Content Marketing Things You Must Never Do'. This sheds a new light on an old post and gives you plenty of ammunition for another 2 - 3 new articles.
You can also go into detail about a specific area of content marketing. For example, you can then break down each article into different subjects related to content marketing, such as 'Link Building', 'Social Sharing' and so on.
People also love something a bit controversial. If you have a personal view on a subject matter that might be considered slightly controversial, express it! (Try to avoid being too controversial as this could result in a loss of readers.
2. Browse through similar blogs and websites for inspiration
You should never steal ideas from another website or writer, but you can certainly gain inspiration from them. Look for a fresh angle on something that's already been written. Try to rewrite an article from a different angle and in a different style. Not only will this help you to come up with a brand new article but it will also give you plenty of ideas for more articles.
3. Take some time out
Another great way to gain a fresh perspective on things is to step away from your computer screen and take some time out. Whether that means getting a glass of water, going for a walk, reading a magazine article or simply doing nothing for a short period of time - so be it. Do whatever it takes to reignite your creative streak and get back on track with your content creation.
