Top 10 Secrets to Unique Content Creation Ideas
Tired of the same old content?
Need something fresh to boost your content building efforts?
You need a fresh perspective, something different from your regular course of action.
Yes, there is a reason why you have a readership on your blog. Your audience like what you normally write and share. However, at times, the same old does not work and bringing in more of the new old isnâ€™t a good idea either. You need to think fresh, something outside of your regular topics.
Set a schedule for new things, say â€śOff Topic Tuesdayâ€ť, where you will post off topic and random things that are not directly related to your business. This way, you donâ€™t send away your regular readers and get something different on your blog that spice up your content.
Here, in this article, we will discuss several of these ideas for building unique content.
This is perhaps the easiest way to do this. You need a fresh perspective, you need someone to come up with unique ideas, your best strategy here is to hire someone else to do it.
You need to make sure that the one you are hiring is creative and fresh with new ideas and at the same time has enough experience to come up with solid content.
Another option is to crowd source it. Rather than hiring anyone specifically, open up your content offers to the general public. Get a bunch of people to write for you, it is relatively cheaper and you get more ideas and perspective than one single person can provide.
Guest Blogging is a great way to build new and unique content on a blog. Yes, you can get crappy content and that is where your moderation will be tested.
If you open up your blog for guest blogging, there will be tens of hundreds of guest post offers reaching you every day. Most of it is obvious spam which turns off many target blogs away from the whole guest blogging idea. But if you go through it, you will see that there are some good offers as well. If you can manage to get a few of these to write for you regularly, very soon you will have a lot of content on your blog and the best part is that it is on auto-pilot. It needs minimum editing and good guest bloggers are great with formatting and following rules.
You will get great content, absolutely ready to get published.
Inspiration from other blogs and community sites
Study your niche. Look what others are doing.
You donâ€™t need to blindly copy, just look for inspiration. There are top blogs in every niche. No matter what niche you are on, you will see a huge and authority blog on it.
Another way to find inspiration is from community sites. There are niche social sites that cover a specific topic. Search for those and see how many you can find on your niches. These are great for getting content inspiration and ideas.
Host a Content Contest
This can be done by multiple ways. You can run contests for ideas and the best idea will win. There are caption contests where you post an image and people suggest a caption for it.
The target audience always have a lot of suggestions, but they keep it to themselves. Ideas are important and so are the suggestions, but getting them out is the hard work. No one wants to give away the good stuff easily. A contest can just be the right motivator, especially if it involves some cash prize.
Do it on a weekly or a monthly basis to get the consistency going.
Creativity simply does not have an alternative. If you plan your content creatively, there are many ways to come up with new content ideas.
There are several creative types of content that works online; here are a few of those.
Meme: This type of content requires an image and an excellent piece of text attached to it. It works best to bring out the humour.
Quotes in Images: Using quotes in images works wonderfully on the social media, especially on sites like Pinterest.
What they think I do â€“ What I really do: This is the sort of image based content that usually goes viral on the social media. Here you talk about what others think you do, what you think you do and what you actually do. If done properly, this type of content can go viral on the social media and can work on all niches.
Success story: This is something that you can only do once. If you arenâ€™t ready for it, give it more time and wait for it. But when you do it, make sure to give it your best shot. You need to make it emotional, explain in detail how difficult it was at the start and how you overcame all the problems and got a major success.
Unique content ideas can hit you when you are least expecting it. Keep a diary with you and when you do get an inspiration, write it down.
