10 Best Practices for Blog Topic Generation

While creating blog content for your business can initially seem daunting, it needn’t be. With a few simple best practices, you’ll very quickly be able to generate themes that are directly aligned with your target audience. Here’s what you need to consider.

  • Develop an Audience-Centric Approach: When developing content ideas, it’s essential that you also develop an audience-centric approach. That means understanding your audience’s demographics and preferences. HubSpot did this quite well in this marketing automation blog, where they are taking a problem that many finance businesses face around efficiency and offering insights on how automation can solve this.
  • Conduct Keyword and Trend Research: A key to any blog strategy has to be keyword and trend research. Make sure that you are optimizing your content for search visibility. You can do this by conducting thorough keyword research that your audience is looking for. It’s also important that you stay up to date with all trends relevant to your industry. You’ll find plenty of tools to consider in this keyword research blog.
  • Maintain a Diverse Content Mix: You must keep your content fresh and engaging otherwise, you’ll lose your audience and go from hero to zero quickly. Don’t just stick to one format. Instead, mix things with how-to guides, opinion pieces, case studies, and listicles to cater to different audience preferences and capture their attention.
  • Address Customer Questions: Become the answer! A key goal for your content should be that you want to solve a problem. Consider what common questions your customers ask. Then, use these queries as the basis for informative blog posts. You’ll quickly become a reliable source of insights that will drive up your engagement rates.
  • Provide Unique Perspectives: Always offer a few viewpoints on the subject you are focusing on. When approaching familiar topics, try to do so from unique angles to provide new insights and perspectives your audience may not have read elsewhere.
  • Check for Content Gaps: The unexplored is an excellent place to venture into. Take a close look at your existing content to uncover gaps where new and exciting topics could be found. Also, look at your competitors’ writing and see what they may be missing.
