To blog or not to blog? That is NOT the question.
It really isn’t. There’s no argument against blogging as a marketing tool for businesses, no matter what industry you’re in, regardless of what products or services you’re selling. A lot of the buzz has been about the benefits of blogging for businesses, including:
- 47% of buyers read 3-5 blog posts before considering a purchase
- Businesses that use blogs get 67% more leads
- Marketers that prioritize blogging get 13x higher ROI
- Blogs are considered to be the 5th most accurate source of information online
- Once you reach the 51 posts milestone, blog traffic goes up by 53%
Focus your attention on that last bullet point: blog traffic increases by at least 53% after publishing your 51st blog post. This means that you have to be prolific in writing blog articles from the get-go in order to enjoy the benefit of increased traffic sooner rather than later.
You know what they say, when there’s traffic, there’s an opportunity — opportunity to engage more people, get more leads, and generate more sales.
How About Writer’s Block?
Of course, this is easier said than done. At an average of one blog post per week, a typical business will take almost a year before reaching that 51 published blog posts mark (there are 52 weeks in one year). If you want to reap the business benefits of blogging within a shorter time frame, you have to write and publish more.
However, for blogging beginners, coming up with topic ideas doesn’t come that easy.
If you’re faced with the same problem, this is what you need to realize: you don’t have to recreate the wheel! There have been thousands of blog posts published online and they fall under the same topic categories. You don’t have to invent something from scratch. By following these trends and patterns, you will find yourself having a robust content marketing stash in no time.
Topic Ideas to Get You Started
To help jumpstart your blog, here are 51 blog post topics that you can write about. Again, these topics are applicable across all industries. It doesn’t matter what your brand is or what you’re selling. Therefore, they will be applicable to you.
