How To Find Interesting Blog Titles

How to Find Interesting Blog Article Concepts

The other day, my friend Lucas reached out to me on Facebook. He appreciates me coaching him on helping him get ramped up on blogging but needs to find ways to get original ideas for blog posts. It’s hard not to just curate information from the web and find what I had described as ‘a juxtaposition of a couple of seemingly unrelated things’ in his industry (fitness,) and create blog posts that will really serve his prime demographic.

Ask the clients you serve to give you the 3 biggest questions they have in regard to your expertise

What have you been struggling with while you’re [insert activity related to my expertise here.] Trying to get fit (fitness trainer,) doing online marketing? (designers, developers, internet marketers) getting started with your lawsuit? (lawyer) dealing with your laundry? (drycleaner)  finding something fun to do around the town? (restaurant, or concert venue)

Even just asking yourself this question in regards to what your potential customers are dealing with, will help you get started, but I suggest you actually ask. Send 15 of your former clients/customers an e-mail. Be friendly, and be clear you’re not looking for business at the moment, just some questions that you will, in turn, try to answer in a detailed blog post. If this were you, would you pleased to receive that e-mail? Likely, yes, if the sender is really trying to be useful to you.

Take a good hard look at what’s already working for topics related to your industry

Tools such as BuzzSumo can give you a look into what’s been working for a particular key-word. For a fitness trainer, you might search variations on the theme. “Bodybuilding,” “working out,” and “fitness.” As you can see the top result here has 830.5k shares on Facebook. This is astronomical and shows you that there is clearly a demand for any articles in this vein. Create one of your own with a bit of a different spin, and you already know there are people that want stuff like it.

Here is a list of tools for Blog Post Idea generation:

1. BuzzSumo – Social Media shares, decent search filters, and has worked for me.

2. Inbound.org – More digital marketing related content. Well vetted, good community.

3. I Am On Demand – Type in your term and it will give you results by relevance, shares or popularity.

4. Topsy – Broader search results but more focused on Twitter.

5. Content Gems – I find this one good for finding articles to share, but could be used for content ideas as well.

7. Alltop – This one is built more around categorization than search, but list articles out in a very condensed way.

8. Twitter Search – You can always just search in Twitter, and they have been doing a better job at showing you top results first. You can use this to see what people are interacting with the most in your field and write blog posts based on that knowledge.

9. Social Mention – Another tool to find what’s being shared most. Adds comment, news and events info.

10. EpicBeat – Another big data aggregator, Search for influencers, formats, and it includes graphical representation of the data.

 

Tell an interesting story, of how you solved an important challenge

When I’m designing websites on WordPress in Minneapolis, I’m always faced with at least one curious challenge for telling a companies story online. Do they have more complex categorization of products? Is their service hard to show visually in a quick and visceral way? Do they have a ton of photos that we want people to be able to interact with quickly without the site loading too long?

Just like I face unique challenges, you do as well in your own industry or niche. Key in on those challenges and tell the story of how you solved them in a way that addresses future clients current concerns. If you’re in the fitness industry, perhaps you have a client who had a hard time getting results because of they couldn’t keep off the cake. How did you solve that? Tell the story in a way that doesn’t out your client; tell it in a constructive way that would help someone who was looking how to solve the same problem.

After you tell the story, give 10 tips or a clear ‘how to’ structure for making your life cake free and still enjoying it, or implementing your one ‘cake day’ a week. How do you suggest sticking to it? It’s really a matter of digging up the topics that encompass ways to be useful to your core demographic and help them solve their issues. When you help them solve their issues, you become the authority on topics related to your business. The idea is that when you become the expert in this, they will be more likely to come to you when they are serious about getting fit, or have a deeper need in the industry you are in. 

How can I get the most out of the Blog Title Generator?

Don’t hold back! Try several different answers to the questions and tweak your answers for context once you see the generated responses.

We’ve tried to make the blog title generator simple enough, that you’ll want to get started – but useful enough that you’ll want to use it again and again. A huge piece of making it simple to use – is not having 10 questions, when 3 will do. Another key was to make the questions somewhat simple – but this also means you may want to adjust your answers once you see the output.

The blog title generator is intended to help get your juices going – write em down, tweak them for your needs, and bookmark this tool for later use!

Now it’s time to blog

We’re big believers in the idea of a ‘content calendar’ – which just means you know what kinds of blogs you’re going to be putting out a month from now, because it really helps you form a cohesive strategy, rather than just blogging about whatever you feel that day.

We also believe in the idea of ‘content neighborhoods’ that allow you to create 5 or more blog posts surrounding a certain topic, perhaps with one big ‘pillar piece of content’ that is intended to generate leads – and/or serve as ‘link bait’ to get more links to your site (if you didn’t know – links are absolutely massive in helping your website get it’s fair share of traffic from Google.)

Tips for writing better articles for your blog


Make your posts extremely easy to scan

Part of this is distilling your most important points into headlines, part of it is bolding particularly interesting or valuable pieces of information, space out your paragraphs so people don’t get lost in a sea of text, and make your links easy to check out.

Distill your most important points into the headlines

Anything in your paragraph or section should be up in that heading above. Literally, I should try to distill everything, especially the most valuable nugget of value and put it into my heading.

Ask a question as the title of your post to stoke curiosity

This is part of promoting your blog articles as well. Create interest by asking a question, and only answer the question once they get into your post, and read it. Every way that you can make someone curious do it. I personally feel like you should be stuffing every last ounce of value you can into a blog post if it’s relevant, and not promote posts with misleading taglines. i.e. ‘Why web designers have better sex.’ and then sneaking a little mini-paragraph justifying my click-bait title, because you can see how a blog visitor could get the point that you don’t value their attention, but rather are just trying to leverage it to get you in the door.

Find a way to frame the topic in a newsworthy way

Incredibly valuable point here, and this is something I haven’t made use of quite as much. When a topic breaks in the news that relates to your industry, perhaps the best thing you can do is provide some fresh perspective from the angle of industry insider. For instance, my post about placeholder ‘Lorem ipsum text’ on the Healthcare.gov website.

Make sure to minimize the amount of industry specific jargon

You can’t just sling around terms like ‘User Experience,’ ‘CMS’ and ‘MVP’ without explaining what they mean and why if you are in any way trying to reach out to people beyond your core ‘tribe’ of people. You may have a core audience for your blog that is in your industry, but some people are peering in the window and they want to be able to learn from your thoughts and experience as well. Let them.

Stop being so formal, Corporations even hate corporate speak now

When I slip out of my character of designer/entrepreneur sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised that people appreciate a somewhat un-guarded and candid look at my perspective. Wiggle out of your armor sometimes and just show the raw you, what you care about, why this work matters to you. If you’re passionate about what you do, all the better, you’re on your way to getting rabid fans that soak up your content with insatiable eagerness.

Use bullet points when you have a list of points

 

Don’t worry as much about the length of the article, stuff it with value

This coming from a mentor of mine who’s been in the industry for 50 years. I told him at coffee hangout session recently, that the most ideal blog post length is said to be up in the 2000 word range now. He said this discussion has been going back and forth for many years, the opinions naturally cycling. What really ends up mattering, he told me, is that each and every ounce of your writing is stuffed with value. If it’s 100 words and packed with value, people are going to notice, and appreciate you saving their time. If it’s 1000 words and that value is spread across the that whole 1000 words, perhaps it won’t have as much impact. So my strategy is to shoot for a thousand words, but pack all thousand of them with tons of value.

Never save an idea for later, put it all in now

Really. If it’s part of your topic of the article your writing, don’t think to yourself, oh I can break this into parts and give them the other half tomorrow. No one cares about tomorrow when it comes to fresh content that’s bursting at the seems with value. Avoid the inclination to save a little value nugget in your pocket for later, put it in now. By giving everything you’ve got now, you set yourself to be open to new insights.

Keep a list of article ideas that you can start writing on at any moment

This is super helpful when I wake up in the morning early to write and instead of waiting for ‘the big idea’ to hit me like a magic bean, I just grab one of the topics on my list that I’ve already expressed interest in writing and start it up. It can also help to have decided on the topic you want to write on specifically that night before, and then think about it a bit before you go to bed. Sometimes the subconscious can do some of the work for you.

Write about the stuff that you love and are super interested in

Nothing is going to insure your success at writing as really pinpointing those things related to your business that are so interesting to you, you want to learn as much as you can about them and share that information. This comes out in your posts, and people are going to catch your enthusiasm.

Be OK with ‘shitty rough drafts’

Number one thing is to get all the information, and stories out on the table in whatever manner you can. If you have to go in and edit later, spruce it up, add or subtract content, than so be it. But in the meantime you have to get something out on the table, it’s not going to write itself. That leads me to the last point…

Do it
