Whether it's blog posts, articles, podcasts, website text, news, emails...
Content is what the internet is made out of. It's what we search for and consume.
And we creators all need fresh ideas for content... consistently.
But coming up with new stuff all the time can be pretty damn hard.
Everyone who has been writing on 200WAD for a while knows that.
I keep coming back to one article for writing prompts:
The ultimate guide to creating fresh content ideas with 100 + writing prompts.
It's written by Marie Forleo, and she created a nifty acronym for her content strategy: SERVE. And it stands for…
Solve a problem
Explain your industry
Reveal your secrets
Embrace your quirks
She also explains very nicely why she chose this strategy:
Why SERVE? Because the secret to long-term success is focusing on what you can give, not what you can get. Make your business about being of service; about contributing beyond yourself; about making a real difference to others and I promise, you’ll find endless topics to write about.
I fully agree!
I'm happiest when I read a comment that my writing has helped someone and has made an impact ... no matter how small.
That's why I write.
