Generating great content with ease.

Sometimes there is just no time in the day to write a blog post or article for your website. Yet it’s generally a good idea to stay on schedule and add content to your site. Content keeps visitors coming to your site and it helps build your business. So what do you do when you don’t have time for generating great content?

We have collated 11 simple and accessible ways to how you can get going in generating great content.

1. Glean content from Social sites

Presumably, you’ve interacted with other people online. Use those comments you’ve posted to create a quick blog post or article for your site. Add a headline, a few subheadings and tweak it for publication. The result? Quick and easy content.

2. Link love

Instead of writing a full-blown article or post, link to an article or blog post and share your opinion about the content. Invite others to comment too.

3. Quick print

Create a list of resources or links to articles and blog posts on a topic that is near and dear to your readers. For example, if you have a blog that offers coaching tips you can create a quick and easy blog post with links to your top ten favourite coaching blogs.

4. Photo sharing

Share a picture and ask readers to create a caption. Some bloggers actually create a specific day for their photo sharing. They call it #WordlessWednesday or something like that. People love to look at photos and you don’t have to write a word!

5. The best of the best

Create an article or blog post recap. Highlight and recap your top blog posts from last month, last quarter, or even last year. Focus on a specific topic to add more value. For example, Top ten blog posts on asking great questions.

6. Get readers involved

Take this hurried time to create an opportunity. Publish a quiz or survey and gain valuable information about your audience.

7. Read all about it

Grab a news feed or two and share links to industry news or headlines and snippets. You can actually create a weekly or monthly post with this idea. For example, you could create an end of the month news update and highlight all the newsworthy things that happened that month.

8. Roll with it

Grab your video camera and create a quick how-to video. A few minutes is plenty to provide good content and it takes less time to create a video for many than to write an article or blog post.

9. Comment love

Share your favourite comments from the past month, quarter or year. This shows your readers that you appreciate their feedback and gets other readers involved.

10. Editorial

Grab a headline from the news and expand on it. Share your opinion.

11. Quotable

Share a quote that inspires you, makes you laugh or is relevant to your industry. It is a simple cut and paste blog post!

If you really don’t have time to write a blog post or article, this is really not a problem. By using just one of these ideas each week, you will keep your readers happy.
