business-blogging-and-5-tips-for-getting-ideas-postOne of the foundational elements of inbound marketing is the effective use of business blogging. While a blog by itself does not constitute the entirety of an inbound, or content, marketing strategy, it is a big part.

Typically, the more frequently the blog posts are published, the better. Differing schools of thought prevail here, but it is generally agreed that a minimum of two posts per month are needed. Once a week is better.

But this requires a regular supply of blog post ideas. And ideas can often be difficult to generate, especially week after week.

Wanted: More Blog Post Ideas!

You may be a small business owner functioning as your own marketing manager, or possibly a staffer who has been tasked with publishing the company blog every week or so. Either way, you have probably discovered that, while the blog is a good idea and it can generate traffic for your website, feeding the insatiable beast with blog post articles can be challenging.

If you are engaged in creating and publishing your own blog for your company, the challenge can be frustrating at best. You are probably busy doing everything else your job calls for and now you have this blog task to keep up with on top of all that. 

Ideas, Ideas, and More Ideas

Unless you've been provided with a pre-made list of blog topics for every week for the rest of the year, you'll have to come up with your own blog post ideas.

The good news is that you are surrounded by potential ideas - you just probably haven't noticed yet. Your employees, for fellow staff members as the case may be, all have unique skills, experience, knowledge and perspectives. A simple interview can reap dozens, if not hundreds, of ideas can be pulled from these valuable sources.

In addition, we have created this handy infographic to give a quick tip guide:
