Content marketing ideas for brand blogs
1. How did you start your career? How do you get where you are today?
Answering this question is a great way for your followers to catch up on your trip. Share everything with them. You can just touch someone’s life and move them in a direction where they achieve their goals.

Suppose you want to write a post about managing social media. You will find the most actionable links and mark them in a list-formatted blog post.

Are you asked countless questions? If so, write them down and answer them. If you haven’t been asked any questions yet, think about what people are likely to ask about your product or service. What things could be an issue where people may need more clarity?
6. Take an unrelated topic and tie it to your subject.
Take something that has nothing to do with your career and turn it into something that has something to do with your career. I once wrote a guest post that I wrote about be in a complicated relationship with my characters (In addition to blogging, I also write fiction).
Basically, I compared character writing with complicated relationships / friendships. It was great fun to write. Think about how you can apply this to your own writing.
7. Have an influencer for a guest post on his blog.
Guest posts are a great way to get more followers and build authority. Just make sure you put your best foot forward when pitching influencers.

Steps to take:
- Take a close look at your competitors’ blogs.
- Write down your strengths and weaknesses.

- How can you improve your strengths while covering your competitors’ weaknesses?
9. How did someone use your product most creatively?
At CoSchedule I actually met some people online who told me that they used our headline analyzer to write titles and chapter names for their books. I would say that this is a pretty creative way to use the tool. So it’s a blog idea that could help others.
Do you have a product? If so, how did people use it creatively?

Question them. You may find out something new about your blog or business.

Wenn Sie in einer kreativen Nische arbeiten, gibt es Zeiten, in denen die Worte fließen oder die Ideen wie ein Brunnen aus Ihnen heraussprudeln.

Lass das nicht dir und deiner Kunst passieren.
Es gibt keine größere Qual, als eine unerzählte Geschichte in sich zu tragen. – Maya Angelou
Unzählige Kreative haben mir gesagt, dass Kreativität einem Kind sehr ähnlich ist. Wenn während der Geburt des Kindes größere Komplikationen auftreten, besteht die Möglichkeit, dass sowohl die Mutter als auch das Baby sterben. Die gleiche Geschichte könnte man für den Künstler sagen, der eine unbeschreibliche Geschichte trägt. Wenn Sie eine Geschichte zu erzählen haben, diese aber nicht erzählen, verletzen Sie sich selbst und schaden der Geschichte. Du willst nicht, dass die Geschichte stirbt, oder?
Bleiben Sie kreativ und beenden Sie Ihre Arbeit. Schiff.
Echte Künstler versenden. – Steve Jobs
Teilen Sie all die Dinge, die Sie als Autor, Blogger, Content-Vermarkter, Künstler oder Grafikdesigner kreativ halten.

103. Was machst du gerne außerhalb der Arbeit?
Wenn Sie einen Teil Ihres Lebens außerhalb von Arbeit, Geschäft und / oder Ihrem Blog teilen, lernen die Leute Sie besser kennen. Manchmal hilft es den Menschen zu erkennen, dass Sie nur eine normale Person sind.
104. Kreative und inspirierende Zitate zu Ihrer Branche.
Ich liebe es, Zitate zu inspirieren – besonders wenn sie sich auf eine persönliche Nische beziehen. Andere Menschen lieben sie aus dem gleichen Grund.
Zitate sind im Grunde genommen Wissensbissen von einer anderen Person, die bei Inspiration und Ermutigung helfen. Ermutigen Sie Ihr Publikum mit nischenbezogenen Zitaten. Es hilft auch, nur zu wissen, dass andere genauso gefühlt haben.
Es gibt nichts zu schreiben. Alles was Sie tun, ist sich an eine Schreibmaschine zu setzen und zu bluten. – Ernest Hemingway
105. Welche Top-Dinge möchten Sie wissen, als Sie anfingen zu bloggen?

Dies kann eine großartige Zeit sein, um sich etwas vorzustellen und zu träumen. Versuchen Sie jedoch, realistisch zu sein. Das Setzen von SMART-Zielen hilft wirklich. Sie möchten sich nicht überfordert fühlen, wenn Sie feststellen, wie viel sich auf Ihrem Teller befindet.

Also, think about reaching out to the author of the book to share your review with them. Authors love it when people contact them to talk about their books. Who wouldn’t want to know that their writing impacted your life?
Blog Ideas About the Writing Process
125. What keywords bring the most traffic to your site? Use that data to write more on those topics.
Creating more content like your most popular blog posts just makes sense. Use a tool, like Moz, to understand the keywords that are helping you crush it and get new blog ideas from your best content.
126. Write a post where you share your top blog posts.
Create a fun way to get your readers excited about your top posts. What else can you do to make them special?
127. Participate in a blog hop, blog roundup, or carnival online.
When you participate in a blog hop, blog roundup, or a carnival, you’ll have to write a blog post that has to do with a topic. Usually, the blogger who is hosting the blog hop or setting up the carnival will have an overarching theme. You’ll have to write something about that with a topic that relates.
128. Write your writer’s guidelines.
Having guest writers is an awesome way to fill up your blog with content. You just want to make sure you go about it the right way. Treat your blog like a magazine and ask for pitches.
How to craft your writer’s guidelines:
- Pitch guidelines: What do you want writers to put into their pitches? What things do you need to see from them in order to say “yes” to their pitch? Additionally, I would usually recommend asking for 250–500 words of the article that they’re pitching to you. This will help you see if their writing is any good before you accept a pitch.
- Other things they should send with the pitch include their blog URL, social links, and a few writing samples.
- Lay out how the guest writing process goes, so the writer will know how to approach you and what to expect about the whole process.
- Keep in mind what minimum-maximum length you want for your posts.
129. Create a master list of helpful Amazon Kindle books that are in your niche.
When it comes to free e-books out there, there are a ton of them.
Self-publishing has opened many doors for writers, but it has also opened the publishing doors for a whole lot of not-so-good stuff. That makes it difficult for a person to find good, actionable e-books that are actually free.
Put together a list post of good, free e-books that you’ve found.
130. Write something that you’ve never written before.
Do you only write blog posts?
Ever thought of writing something different? Think about writing lyrics, a short story, poetry, or a short script and then share it on your blog.
Playing around in different formats of writing will make you a stronger writer.
131. Make a comprehensive guide post.
Make a comprehensive guide on a certain topic. Teach your readers the in-and-out to writing “how-to posts” or whatever topic you decide to choose. Remember to make it actionable.
132. Write a memorial post.
Did someone influential in your life or business pass away? Write up a blog post in memory of them. Share what you learned from them and how they affected your life, blog, and/or business.
133. Create a list of ____.
Write a list post. List posts are some of the more popular blog posts out there.
134. Create a list of online tools.
Do you use any online tools? If so, write up a list of the most helpful tools you’ve found and used.
135. Write a checklist on how to ________ (fill in the blank).
We recently published a post here on the CoSchedule blog that was a checklist. These are fun posts to write. Just walk your readers through the process of doing something in a checklist format.
136. A–Z post.
Have you ever seen those posts where bloggers do the A–Z posts on certain topics? There are a few ways that you could go about using this for blog ideas.
First, you could write one post with a list from A–Z, and then list words that start with that letter. You could also write a blog post for each letter. That would be a ton of blog ideas, once you got through the whole alphabet.
137. 100 things…
100 things you love, 100 things you enjoy, or 100 tools you swear by.
Ideas for Repurposing Blog Content
138. Thank your audience and give them something special for being awesome.
Thank your readers. They’re reading your blog posts, so thank them. Give away something special to them for being awesome.
They will definitely be thinking, “What’s in it for me?” every time they read a post on your blog. That’s just something to keep on your mind whenever you come up with new blog ideas.
139. Put your best blog posts into a free ebook.
When you’re done with the book, write up another post covering some awesome tips from all the posts that you compiled into the ebook. Put a call to action in there where people can sign up for the book and grow that email list.
140. Write a handwritten letter or sketch something to share.
Write a blog post and then write a few quotes from your blog post by hand. Scan it and then upload those into your posts. This will add a new creative twist to your blog post.
141. Let people hear your voice.
Turn your posts into downloadable audio mp3 files. This is a fun way to be unique since people sometimes get sick of reading a ton of information. Think about having an audio area where they can listen to your post instead.
Big blogs, like Social Media Examiner, do this for their most successful posts using a tool called Blubrry Powerpress.
142. Live blog a conference.
Attend a session and write down everything the speaker says. Post it on your blog.
Share your post on social media using the event hashtag, so attendees will find it.
143. Host your own webinar.
Take an old blog post and make a webinar out of it. Then write a new post and market your webinar in it.
Create and host your own webinar
- Create a landing page with something like Leadpages or Instapages.
- What is the benefit for people to sign up?
- Give something away for free to people who sign up — of course, in exchange for an email. Then you can send them the recording and also their free gift.
- Use a program, like Zoom or Google Hangouts, to host and record your webinar.
- Share your landing page on social media, with your friends, and email newsletter subscribers. Be sure to use a great call to action.
144. Are there templates or downloads that your readers would enjoy having?
Now, write those up and share them freely or use them to collect email subscribers.
Think about turning the content you already have on your blog posts into a download of some sort. Could that be a guide, worksheet, or video course?
Take a look at our Resource Library for some great ideas on things you can create.
145. Try vlogging for a month.
Vlogging is a great way to play around with creating new content or reshaping old content into something new. If you want to turn an old post into a vlog, go through your post and pick out the main topics that will help your audience solve whatever problem they want to solve.
Then write it out as a script. Practice a ton. Record yourself and then edit it. Once you are done with that, share it with your audience.
Tips for vlogging:
- Write your script more like an outline than an actual post. Keep sentences shorter rather than longer, so it’s easier to read.
- Put googly craft eyes on either side of your computer video recorder (if you are using your computer), so you keep eye contact with your audience. As a viewer, it can be distracting to watch a speaker who is always looking away or looking in the wrong direction.
146. Host a live workshop.
Write an actionable post about the topic that you are going to cover. Don’t cover everything you want to cover in the workshop, but you can share something awesome that will make them want to sign up for that course.
Having a downloadable piece of content also really helps them sign up. We all love free stuff!
What to keep in mind:
- What kind of a workshop do you want to host? In person? Online? A Meetup?
- Brainstorm the different topics that you’d like to cover. You can even take a post that you’ve already written — take the key points and cover actionable tips about them.
- Write your notes like an outline. Keep your sentences short, so it’s easier to focus when you look down at your notes.
- Talk slowly enough for people to understand you.
147. Create infographics for some of your top-performing posts and share them.
Infographics are a lot of fun for making your blog posts a little more colorful and scannable. You can learn more about making them here. Share them on social media. Pinterest loves infographics.
148. Create a quick reference guide.
You could also call it a cheat sheet. Fill it with tips and tricks of the trade that’ll help your audience ace the test.
149. Have you made past blogging mistakes?
Have you made any blogging mistakes? Make a list of all the mistakes. It would make a great what-not-to-do post.
