Content Marketing Ideas: 14 Simple Ways To Get Awesome Ideas For Your Content Marketing

Content marketing is continuing to play an increasingly important part in marketing your business effectively.

There’s only one small problem. You need to have a steady and consistent supply of content for it to work… and how can you come up with enough content marketing ideas to keep that flow going?

What content can you continue to create that will attract the right traffic for your business, and bring new leads and customers through your door?

That’s where this article comes in, and it’s actually far simpler than you might believe.

Here are fourteen awesome ways to keep ideas flowing into your content marketing funnel, and allow you to build an increasing level of online visibility and traffic for your business in the months and years ahead.

1. Keyword research

Did you know sites like eHow.com have built much of their success on keyword research? Their content is largely created on what their research tells them people are looking for online. You can simply employ the same strategy.

2. Quora

Quora has a huge amount of potential for idea generation. It contains queries on a ton of different topics – simply find your niche, and look through the queries to discover what people are trying to find out about.

3. Customer Questions

Your own customer support is an invaluable source of ideas, because you hear straight from the horse’s mouth what information your customers and prospects are looking for.

4. Blog Comments

Similar to the above, comments on your blog enable you to listen directly to your marketplace, and you can then create content to respond to those needs.

5. Other Blogs In Your Niche

By reading other blogs within your niche, you can get some great ideas for your own posts, and gain further inspiration from the comments they receive. For example, you might be able to flesh out a topic they briefly touched on in their post, or approach it from a new angle.

6. Twitter

Search Twitter and discover what’s happening in your own niche. As well as comments you’ll see links to a lot of other content that could help inspire your own.

7. Hot Topics

What are the main topics of conversation in your industry right now, from your customer’s point of view? What are their primary concerns, right now?

8. How-To Tutorials

How-to type content remains very popular, and providing such content is a great way in which you can immediately gain authority and trust with someone. You’ll also find people get referred to your tutorial from others who have benefited from your advice.

9. Items in the News

What’s in the news right now that affects customers in your niche? Alternatively, how could you adapt and apply key news stories to your business? Tapping into the conversation already in your customer’s mind can be a powerful way to capture their attention and reach audiences who haven’t come across you before.

10. Previous Content

Content you have created before can easily form the basis of new content. For example, you can approach it from a different angle, or use a different media. A blog post written previously can form the basis of a video on YouTube. Topics briefly touched on before can be expanded into completely new content items.

11. List-From Content

This article is a list-form article – content formed on the basis of creating a list about something. What lists could you create of relevance for your own potential customers?

12. Stay Alert!

Train your brain to take advantage of new ideas as they arise. Opportunities for new content are all around you! Start carrying a notebook and pen around with you, or use your smartphone. Jot down new ideas whenever they arise… your brain will get used to it, and supply you with increasing numbers of ideas to pick from.

13. Interview Someone

Who is well known and familiar to your customers, and who has relevance to your business (or how can you make what they do relevant)? You’ll be surprised at how willing most people are to be interviewed. Just make a list of questions, and record the conversation… use Skype or a Google Hangout.

14. Interview Yourself!

Either ask someone to interview you, or interview yourself. This gives a great opportunity to display your expertise, gain credibility with your audience, and reach new audiences you wouldn’t otherwise reach. For example, someone interviewing you could make the interview available to their own list.

So there you have it… 14 simple ways to get an everlasting supply of awesome ideas for your content marketing.

Psychic Insights and Prosperity Horoscopes for 2014

Psychic Impressions of 2014

Life is going to get wild, folks. The surf is UP, it’s action time- apathy is scarce and life seems more acute in this fast moving, fast-changing, transitional year. It’s time to ride the waves and accept all the interesting things that can happen. Many, many things can happen to a person in just one year. 2014 feels to be a surprise, possibly mind-blowing… very real and revealing and renewing. Many take the plunge and truly leave the past behind. People free themselves left and right. Good news for people wondering “if they will ever change”: we are much more willing to follow our intuition and spiritual guidance than in past years.

2014 has a rollicking, reckless rhythm that goes to extremes… it’s an exciting time to be a teenager! I’ll bet they have their fair share of adventures they don’t tell anybody about, and get less sleep than usual.

Showing Up Matters: A year of personal triumph and arriving somewhere new. Within themselves, people are ready and willing to act, to revolt, to revolutionize their self-image, wardrobe, country, religion, and take on daunting challenges. It’s a more pointed year of personal re-invention, transformation of work styles, and even the metamorphosis of society’s institutions. The biggest changes come this year, and the greatest exhilaration. Peoples’ sense of purpose is renewed.

Love, relationships, and partnerships are much more of a focus this year than last. People’s need for comfort and intimacy becomes more important.. They get together for a wider range of reasons, finding the answer in partnerships of various kinds. Collaborations can be very successful this year. People will look back and be glad about the love that has come into their life… it’s a good year to get involved and care about others, and be enriched. Emotional healing is in the air.

The U.S.: Reasons to be optimistic are: President Obama has a surprisingly great year so he must be getting more done. Perhaps he is effective in some new way about “income inequality”. It looks like the stock market does well in some commodities and new kinds of industry/technology. Echoing this year’s phenomenon in people, where they get a clear view of their low and high points, the worst and the best of their life, disenfranchised poor Americans might be going through the same thing-seeing how bad it can get, and then seeing new opportunities made. There may be many more solutions forthcoming… there is something about this year (maybe it takes both 2014 and 2015) that is like turning a corner.

The Speaking Stones: The Speaking Stones are a divination system I use with individual clients, in circles to create a group divination, and also for messages about the year or month. There are eight stones, and I used only six for 2014 because two stones “didn’t’ belong” in the design, and a stone excluding itself gives its own message:

The stones left out of the 2014 design suggest that it will not be a grounded, stable time, but another transitional year of major earth changes, fierce uprisings in society, continued abuse of Mother Nature, and crazy weather.

The 2014 design puts a spotlight on “unexpected developments” that have a big impact. It suggests we witness rapid change. Something could temporarily throw our money situation up in the air. A really big problem could surface. If a person’s world or some important aspect of their life is based on something false, it could be coming apart at the seams in 2014. Instability gets revealed. Although ultimately the stock market might do well, the drama and change in this design suggests there will be volatility and panic.

Astrological Triggers in 2014

All of January: Venus retrograde in Capricorn promotes us to make various upgrades, i.e. we introduce better-serving systems into our lives, more efficient procedures; we create better web presences, and nicer wardrobes. People in estranged relationships might reunite for emotional as well as practical reasons.

Jupiter in Cancer moves into Leo July 16th: When Jupiter is in Cancer, people tend to go on an inner journey concerned with personal growth and preparation, often for some new offering or venture. When it moves into Leo, they are more outgoing, presenting something to the world, and on stage in some new way. This astrological framework is helpful so you’re not concerned if you are inward-focused the first half of the year, it’s natural.

Grand Cross of Spring 2014: really intense!! The cavalcade of change-invoking circumstances in 2013 continues-only with greater intensity. Life highlights a choice: Are you choosing to shrink your world, or learn and expand? The Spring energy is unusually pressurized, so don’t worry if you’re not feeling on an even keel, few are! All that matters is you keep adjusting back to a centered place.

On an individual level, a Grand Cross of four squared planets in April intensifies and highlights the polarities within us. If we are able to use its energy because we want to help ourselves or someone else, we can have strong, strong energy to get something done that’s difficult. Being “on your own side” allows you to move forward with this energy.

This time will deepen our need for inner peace. It makes us search for what we stand for and value. We seek to exist on ever more truthful levels that keep life manageable. Innovations in our personal life will entail cleaning out and clearing out, especially the first half of the year.

Positive Response to Pressure: The Year of the Mighty Collaborators: Heroes come out when crises emerge! With courage and candor, collectives of Concerned Citizens for Planet Earth begin to operate full-throttle. We’ll hear of innovative solutions and how we can benefit from streamlined processes. According to a Mayan shaman I heard recently, there’s hope in that we have a new 25 year cycle to look forward to, in which we can make up for having blown it so far as planetary stewards, by trying much harder from now on. Or else.

Personal Guidance: It’s easy to get out of balance in excessive 2014. The best time to establish personal health routines is right now in the beginning of the year: make a ceremony out of personal stability with the twenty minutes of exercise you do in the morning, or make time for exercise classes if that’s what works; diet and health routines deliver the balm of well-being and you’ll want them in place by Spring.

We could see our personal bottom and our personal top, and you could reach both in the same year. This is no time to judge yourself: performance in different areas of life varies. Of all years, individuals benefit from increased self-understanding and self-acceptance. Remember Edison: something like 10,000 failures before he succeeded to make a light bulb. In the long run all that counts is showing up.

Individual messages for the Astrological signs: OK, here comes the awful part: I have lost all the messages, maybe. The digital recorder I used just flashes “error” and nothing online helps me figure this out. Although this manufacturer still has real-people customer service, and maybe the file can be recovered. Meanwhile, I have a set of 2014 prosperity and “how to succeed” messages already posted on my blog and the Examiner; they will have to fill in until February’s newsletter, when I’ll write individual messages for the astrological signs.

For all signs: Success and projects in 2014 take effort and grit.

Banish hate! If it isn’t in your repertoire of emotional responses to yourself or anyone else, you will avoid connecting with a lot of weird energy batting around the planet this year; don’t align with the weird side of 2014 because it’s a mile wide.

How to Succeed in 2014 for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: This year is about getting your fire re-ignited. Now you feel free to do what brings you prosperity. It’s going to be hard if you must know what’s going to be successful; never mind how things look now. Do what you find most compelling, it leads to success.

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: The route to prosperity begins with having to clear things out of their lives, then knowing what it is they’re willing to put energy into, and being willing to start at the beginning of something. Recognize you have the tools, the strength, and the inner resources to begin in this freer place

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: You have better connections and backing or support this year, yet you’re keenly aware it’s still up to you and your work, and how you follow through, to make a success out of your better prospects. But you have a very good running start with plans that have already started before the year begins.

Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: This is a year where you may not see revenue from your new ideas, but you can get invaluable feedback. Don’t overextend yourself investing in what’s new: you’re more in the dreaming-up and experience-gathering phase.

2014, 2015 And Beyond: Best Stock Investing Strategy

Sometimes your best stock investing strategy is to find the best stock fund you can and stay with it. But “buy and hold” might not work so well in 2014, 2015 and beyond. Stock investing consists of bull markets and bear markets, and the bear may be coming out of hibernation soon.

Stocks are the key to making higher returns, but simply buying and holding equities has been disappointing for investors since the year 2000. Most investors lack a clear strategy and the best stock investing strategy for 2014, 2015 and beyond may be simpler than you think. Recent history has shown that sometimes investors need to take some money off the table. It’s all about bull (up) and bear (down) markets.

The time to get aggressive is AFTER a bear market has driven prices down heavily for about two years as in early 2002 and 2009. The time to consider a defensive strategy is AFTER a bull market has sent prices upward for several years (like 5). In 2014, we again hit the 5-year mark… as we did in 2007… when a bear market again took more than 50% from investors for the second time in recent memory. For 2014 and 2015, the best stock investing strategy calls for defense vs. aggressive buying.

This is not rocket science. Think of it as the art of balancing fear vs. greed. Between the two emotions, FEAR is the stronger. It took less than two years for the last two bear markets to destroy 50% or more of the stock market’s value vs. several years for investors to recover from those losses. The best stock investing strategy is not about selecting winners in the market. It’s about timing market trends called bull and bear markets.

I’m not taking about selling all of your equities or equity (stock) funds and moving your money into bonds or cash for 2014 and beyond. We’re talking about the best stock investing strategy for long-term investors here. If you’re heavily into the market, consider taking money off the table. Cut your expose and take some profits. If you missed out on this last bull market – don’t jump on the bandwagon now. Investing is an ongoing process, and your best strategy is to avoid ever taking heavy losses.

Once you’ve taken a 50% loss, you then need to earn 100% on your money just to break even. When you consider those numbers you realize why stocks have been disappointing for investors in general since the turn of the new millennium. Forget about trying to find the best stock in a risky market. Focus on conserving your assets in 2014 and 2015, because a bear market could be coming. Sometimes the best stock investment strategy is to keep some powder dry in anticipation of the next bull market.

Investors tend to be overly optimistic near the end of a bull market, and that could be the case for 2014, 2015. Bear markets are often swift and brutal. Over the long run, successful stock investing is a matter of market cycles. Going into 2014 the market was up five consecutive years for a gain of well over 100%. The best stock investing strategy going forward could well be protecting yourself from potentially heavy losses.

There will be another bear market, whether it starts in 2014, 2015 or later. Once it’s well under way, then it will be time to plan ahead for the next bull market. Don’t overreact in any market. Your best stock investing strategy as a long term investor is to buy or sell in increments over time as market trends go to extremes. We’re talking sensible stock investing here, not speculation.
