Are you looking to increase traffic to your blog? Maybe you need help grabbing people's attention. Read on for a few blogging tactics.
One topic you can write about is the leaders in your industry. They are experts so their knowledge will be beneficial to not only you but your readers and they will be likely to share your post. If you write about ten experts, you have up to ten people sharing the blog and they are likely to have thousands of followers. So just like that, you can reach hundreds of people. This also shows respect and loyalty.
This may seem like a no-brainer but use creative titles. You can compare two totally different things that don't seem similar at all; this will cause people to become interested and read what you have to say. I recently wrote a blog titled "Make Your Marketing More Refreshing than New Socks", or imagine a blog titled "How Inbound is the Same as Snow". You begin to think about how that would be possible, and chances are you read the blog to find out how they are the same.
If you are at a loss for ideas, you can start with a 'No Bad Idea Brainstorm'. Get a group of 2-6 people and start writing any idea that comes to mind for 15 or 20 minutes. After the time is up, read through all the ideas and see which ones stick out. This is a good way to get the creative juices flowing.
