Having good content is very important if you want to attract more people towards your website or blog. There can be many kinds of content that you can have in your page but to make people love those contents, you need to make sure that you have some worthy ones. Ideas are the sources for creativity but it’s not always possible to start you way with instant great ideas. There are some effective ways that you can take to generate content ideas for your website or blog. Let me tell you about some of the most effective ways of them.
YouTube can really be a great source for content ideas. It can help you in two ways. The first way is to write about some of the most visited YouTube videos. Post the video in your page and write about what you think of that video and what can someone learn from it. You can also use different videos to have an idea of your own. There are many short movies and funny videos in YouTube which can give you ideas about new content that people will love. However, make sure that you don’t steal any idea from there. All you need is to generate an idea from different concepts.
Controversies are the best source for interesting content. It also interest people to share their views which will make your content even more attractive to the visitors. People, who don’t even understand anything about politics, like the political controversies. You will find plenty of them in newspapers or in online blogs. All you have to do is to share your views on controversial matters and ask for others to share their views about it. That will light a fire on your post and soon many people will visit the post to read and share their point of views.
The social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are great places to get ideas for your content. You can follow some communities to know what people are talking about mainly. That will get you ideas about what people like to read and see. Research enough on those matters before starting to create the content. You can also ask about good contents in Facebook and Twitter. Give people some content ideas to choose from and see what they like the best. That way you will know what they are interested of and make your content on that subject.
Books and movies are the best sources for creating contents. However, writing reviews is not good enough as there are plenty of sites and blogs for that already. What you need to do is to twist things a bit. Take endings of famous books and movies to create alternative results of it. That will also give you plenty of chances to use creativity. This will surely make people interested to read your post and to share their own alternative endings. Your posts will become more interesting and people will start to check out your posts daily.
Also use well blending of content in your website. Put videos, infographic, slide-shows, interviews, question answers, Top-lists, audio, drawings, flowcharts, text content with well formatting and clear paragraphs. Make content scan-able. Visit other related websites and read comments of other people there. Take ideas and elaborate your own thoughts on those. Also try to put statistics, market research report etc to make your content more info-rich.
