Top 75 Blog Post Ideas To Increase Traffic For Your Blog

  1. Checklist – A checklist needs to be a list of things or items that someone either needs to buy before doing something or it can be a list of things that someone needs to do. For example, if you work in financial services and you target retail investors, you can create a checklist of the things someone needs before they want to apply for a mortgage at a bank. This checklist could include a good credit score, sizeable savings and a solid track record at that bank. Checklists are popular and they do well in search. Don’t forget to sign up for my email newsletter if you want to learn more about content creation especially with unique ideas like checklists. I really like this blogger checklist which can help you understand how to design it if you want to design a checklist. This checklist is from Oh So Amelia:Checklist 2
  2. Cheat Sheets – These are similar to checklists but they are meant to show off specific tips and tricks that are things that you know but you are sharing for free. I really like this cheat sheet from Copyblogger. It gets straight to the point but makes you feel like you are learning some awesome secrets about YouTube marketing.Cheat Sheet 2
  3. List Posts – These have become famous by BuzzFeed, also known as listicles, but this post you are reading right now is a list post. I enjoy the vibrancy and the ability to scan list posts and I think this is one of the many reasons that they tend to do well in SEO for brands and businesses. Come up with unique ideas to promote your business by using lists. For example, as a financial services company, you could write list posts such as Top 100 Credit Cards For Entrepreneurs. If you are an accountant, you could write an article called Top 50 Mistakes Small Business Owners Make With Their Accounting. If you are a lawyer, you could write an article like Top 25 Things Defendants Need To Know About Lawyer Fees. Think outside of the box when it comes to creating list posts and ensure to share them on social media.
  4. How-To – These types of blog posts are standard for businesses. You don’t need to spill all your secrets but you can show people certain things. How-To blogs are starting to lose their meaning because many how-to features are not that detailed. If you are going to write a How-To article, make it count by making it excellent to read.
  5. Case Study – Guys case studies are amazing because they show real-life examples of what is happening in a business. Prospects love them. Buyers love them. Investors love them. You basically need to have a tonne of these. For financial services companies, create a case study of how you helped a company with their finances. For book-keepers and accountants, create a case study on how to decreased financial waste in a small business. For lawyers and attorneys, you can write a case study on how you defended a client in business and were successful (if you were).
  6. Price Lists – Let’s face it guys. One of the most irritating things about browsing a business website is the fact many of us don’t put our prices because we think it may be awkward for prospects and clients. Wrong. Prices can help people understand what you are charging and whether they want to proceed.
  7. Guides – These are also starting to lose their meaning because many Ultimate Guides and Advanced Guides are not written in detail. You need to write them in detail, more than 2K+ words and ideally they should be 5K+ words.
  8. Quizzes – These add a dose of fun to your business. I think businesses in traditional sectors that don’t market heavily such as finance, accounting and legal would benefit from adding quizzes to their blogs.
  9. Pros & Cons – You can create a list of pros and cons about a specific topic related to your business.
  10. Audio Post – You could create a podcast or an audio recording of you talking about a topic for your business. If you are a lifestyle blogger, you could upload an audio post on how people can balance their full-time jobs with lifestyle blogging.Emoji 2
  11. Infographics – These are awesome visual posts that showcase information about a topic connected to your business. You can find a lot of inspiration for ingraphics on Pinterest.
  12. FAQ – Every website should have a detailed FAQ. Don’t be afraid to inject some humour or personality into your FAQ.
  13. Landing Pages – Include fresh landing page content to inspire more sales and traffic to your website.
  14. Buyer Guides – These are jet fuel for bloggers who rely on affiliate marketing to generate income. You can create buyer guides for all types of topics relating to your business. For example, if you are a personal finance blogger, you can write a buyer’s guide to credit cards in 2018 to attract people who are currently looking for a new credit card now.
  15. Fresh Link List – Links of interesting content you have found on the web is worth an addition to your blog. It also gets the attention of other brands and bloggers so that they can learn about your business.
  16. Guest Posts – These are popular within blogging circles. I think it’s more important for businesses that generate guest posts within their market.
  17. A Day In the Life Of – These are very popular in blogging and I think B2B companies can definitely generate traffic using them. If you are a lawyer, you can write about your daily work schedule or if you are a financial advisor, you can write about what you do every day.
  18. A Behind The Scenes Look Post – Showcasing the behind the scenes of your business is an excellent way to create a ‘tribe’ of people who really follow your business. You can show the behind the scenes of your marketing strategy for example.
  19. Experiment Posts – These posts are when you do something purposefully in order to write about it for your blog.
  20. A/B Test Blogs – These are very popular in the technology and optimisation markets. I would encourage A/B Test style posts for every business to add variety to your blog.
  21. Live-Blogging – If you have a sizeable audience for your blog, you could create a live-blogging post.
  22. Documentary – You could create a documentary for your business showing what you guys actually do. I like documentaries that are uploaded onto YouTube because they will help your business get ranked highly for search.
  23. Comparison Guides – These posts are rich in detail. For example, if you work for a financial services company, you can write a comparison guide about whether entrepreneurs should do their own accounting or if they should work with a dedicated accounting firm.
  24. A-Z Feature – People love A-Z posts. You can write the A-Z of lifestyle blogging if you are a lifestyle blogger or you can write the A-Z of divorce law if you are a divorce attorney.
  25. Resource Post – Include resources that your business has for potential customers.
  26. Tutorials – Write tutorials. Write many of them if you want to increase traffic.
