Brainstorming For Untouched Blog Post Ideas
As of now, all the above-mentioned methods are great to get started or break the barrier when feeling stuck.
But the best and unique ideas come from within.
This is where you need to be creative as well as solving problems your audience might be facing.
And the titles and post ideas you will Brainstorm will be 100% yours.
Let take an example of Ryan Biddulph (Blogging From Paradise.)
He uses this amazing technique to write creative blog title that is meant to attract the attention as well as solving the problem.
Here’s one of the post.
As you can see he uses the word “Electrified Skeeter Rackets” to teach about Blog Monetization.
And by no means, you can find such amazing title ideas from online tools.
Though it is useful but brainstorming cannot be replaced by any means.
Pro Tip: Combine brainstorming with online tools and get amazing results. Just give it a try.
Doing Keyword Research
The most important aspect to rank any blog is doing keyword research.
But this is also interesting that for one keyword you search for and get other related keywords too.
That is again a useful option to get less competitive keyword that you can rank for as well as the blog post ideas.
Now you can use tools like KWFinder, SEMRush, and long tail pro to find low competitive keywords.
You can read my complete KWFinder review and walkthrough to know more about keyword research in detail.
Then copy your keyword and paste into tools like:
This will also give you related searches that you can combine within your Blog post.
Not only you will have a post idea but also have a great compiled content covering each and every search term within your blog post.
This techniques of finding blog post ideas can be applied by everyone irrespective of niche.
Some blog ideas are proven to work like Interview, in-depth content, reviews, round-up post etc.
But you can use each and every idea if you feel it goes well within your niche.
Like sharing your music playlist on SEO blog makes no sense.
But sharing some SEO related stuff on a Personal blog can make sense.
So choosing the post ideas according to your niche is a great way to build a community around your blog.
Likewise doing round-up post suits each and every industry.
The above tools and methods are a great way to find more post ideas when feeling stuck.
But you cannot always depend on such tools.
Brainstorming can be your best tool if you can utilize it.
Using online tools coupled with brainstorming is what I follow.
So if you follow any different tools for finding your Blog post ideas let me know. Let’s build a great community.
