So you have a blog, now what?

Blog’s can be a great source of information for your customers, however coming up with something week after week can be daunting. Here are some ideas and inspirations for those times when you get the notorious writers block.

-Think about the top questions you get asked by your customers and write a blog addressing those questions.

-What are you working on? You can easily upload pictures and show your readers what your business is up too.

-Interview someone in your industry. Provide your readers with an interesting interview from an industry insider.

-Travel. Get inspired by your surroundings. You don’t have to travel to far off distances even listing some local hot spots can create a blog entry.

-Read. Select a few articles that you have read or provide reviews on books you have recently read relating to your industry.

-Surf the net. By searching the internet you can find interesting articles, stories or pictures for your posts.

-Shop. This is my personal fav :) Shop for things or services for your industry and sharing that with your readers.

-Write a review. In business you use a lot of different services and make great connections so share that with your readers and give your rave reviews about who you use. (Be careful with this one though if your writing a negative review, it could come back to bite you)

-Try new places and things. By trying out new places or things you are not only staying current within your industry but you can provide readers with why your way of doing things is better than the competition.

-Get technical. Are their certain aspects of your business that leave people scratching their heads? Explain in layman’s terms something about your industry.
