4 Content Creation Methods That Won’t Disappoint:
1.) Don’t Be Afraid To Use Forums Or Content Curation Tools
So there’s this thing called “Reddit” (ever heard of it?). As of June 2015, dark-horse Reddit had over 36 million registered users. With millions of people posting and commenting daily, it’s a great tool when you just can’t think of a topic. Content curation software is perfect for every day that isn’t “National ___ Day”. Just type in your topic and you’ll be served with at least 5 great tweet ideas.
2.) Take Examples From Your Own Life
Sometimes the best ideas come from our personal experiences. Have a failure that turned out to be a teaching moment? Share it! Proud of a success? Tell us! You’ll be surprised how many people find value in learning from your struggles and success.
3.) Recycle Content
We’ve already established that you’re full of great ideas. So why not go back through your old content and add any new information to make it more relevant. This is the perfect move if you’re pressed for time.
4.) Use Google Keyword Planner
