Build your online presence with more web content
If you are considering blogging and developing a social presence online, where to find ideas for content can be difficult. You may have some decent ideas to start off with – and suddenly you decide to write a blog post every day but quickly discover you have run out of content for your website before the end of week 1.
They key to online content is to pace yourself, build a content strategy before heading straight into it. To novice content writers, ideas and words on paper are often the slowest and most painstaking parts of writing. Getting words on paper – even in bullet point form is a good start.
Ideas can come from your day-to-day working life – questions customers ask; changes to prices due to increases in supplier/transport costs; government regulations affecting your industry etc. are just some examples of where the inspiration for content can come from. A good old-fashioned notepad and a pen at work are a good idea – otherwise a great idea you think of might suddenly be forgotten due to other daily issues occupying your mind.
