Blog Content Tips
When mulling over potential topics consider these sources:
#1 Your latest fam trip. How about recounting the highlights of the destination, resorts, attractions, restaurants you visited. Then focus on 1 or 2 key points related to each of these facets of your fam. This will yield you a series of short blog posts each about 200-400 words. More riveting content ideas here.
Bonus Tip: Include photos with captions to support your content.
#2 Didn’t you attend a webinar last week? How about relating some of the cool new information you learned from the webinar presenter? Maybe it was some interesting new attractions in a destination. Maybe the webinar showcased some new resorts. Consider providing your blog readers with a synopsis of these features and benefits. How about calling it a ‘Quick Guide’? Readers are really short on time and are drawn to titles that include keywords and ‘Quick’ is most likely one of their key words.
Bonus Tip: Include quotes from the webinar presenter
#3 Hate to write? I’ll bet you can easily pull together 5 or 6 great photos relating to your chosen topic and write an opening and closing sentence. Great news! Now you have a short and simple blog post. Not convinced? Here are more tips for non-writers.
Bonus Tip: When creating your blog be sure to add sub headings that are filled with your keywords.
