Nine Content Ideas for Any Niche
When you are trying to come up with content ideas for your niche, you can use a few basic starters for the content that will work for literally any niche. Once you have these nine ideas, you can break them down into individual points for blog posts, podcasts, videos, eBooks and more.
1. Make a List of Good Points
Every niche has some good points about it that make people feel good. You can write Seven Awesome Things about XYZ and it always fits. Seven Awesome Things about Eating Vegetables or Seven Great Reasons to Use an Accountant both work, so you can make any type of idea work.Content Idea No. 1 - Make a List of Good Points. Things that make people feel good about your niche. Click To Tweet
2. Make a List of Bad Points
Just like the good points will work, you can twist it and write the opposite. Using my ideas above, you can turn it into Seven Reasons You Don’t Want to Eat Vegetables or Seven Reasons Not to Use an Accountant – then make it a funny article saying things like “You hate being healthy” or “You want to pay too much tax”, something like that.Content Idea No. 2 - Make a List of Bad Points. Try not to be negative but turn it into something funny. Click To Tweet
3. Ask (and Answer) a Question
This is a great way to come up with ideas to create content. You can use questions actually asked directly of you, or you can search for questions on any website, blog, forum or social media network that you’ve seen within your niche.Content Idea No. 3 - Ask (and Answer) a Question. Always best to have the solution too! Click To Tweet
4. Make a List of Facts
This can work really well for your content since in reality there are going to be far more than seven or ten facts about your niche. You can literally do this idea as often as you can come up with a list of facts in relation to your niche. You could then repurpose this content into an e-Book!Content Idea No. 4 - Make a List of Facts. This can work really well and you should be able to get to 7-10 facts. Click To Tweet
5. Make a List of Misconceptions
Just like there are facts, there are almost always misconceptions about your niche. Perhaps you host a niche website or blog about the subject of bird watching (my husband’s hobby!). You can write many articles or create many YouTube videos addressing misconceptions about various breeds of birds or even misconceptions about the equipment used in bird watching.Content Idea No. 5 - Make a List of Misconceptions. Often easier to come up with than facts. Click To Tweet
6. Give the Best Advice for Solutions
For each niche, there are various problems with corresponding solutions that you are likely offering to the audience. You can use this fact to help create content focused on the best solutions and the best advice for using the solutions properly.
By providing solutions to your ideal clients’ problems you’ll be starting to position yourself as an expert in your niche.Content Idea No. 6 - Give the best advice for Solutions. Providing solutions to your ideal clients' problems will give you expert status. Click To Tweet
7. Give the Worst Advice for Solutions
Conversely, there are always some solutions that don’t work or that are a bad idea. Why not write about the bad ideas, the bad solutions, and the answers that don’t work, and then turn it around to offer your own solution after talking about what’s wrong with the other ideas.Content Idea No. 7 - Give the Worst Advice for Solutions. This will give you the opportunity to turn it round with the best advice. Click To Tweet
8. Tell the Top Three Beginning Ideas
In any niche, there is a very basic beginning to consider. Starting at the very beginning is often forgotten because it seems so elementary to you, but to someone who is new to the niche it won’t seem like minutia. It will seem super interesting and important.Content Idea No. 8 - Tell the Top Three Beginning Ideas. It's easy to forget the basics as they seem elementary to you. Click To Tweet
9. Be Controversial
Sometimes, being controversial is a great way to get more ideas for content. You can find a blog post that a mover and shaker talked about and tell why you agree or disagree. You can connect some content with current events. For example, if you run a dieting website or blog, you can discuss a famous person’s weight issues, and give them advice even though you don’t even know them.Content Idea No. 9 - Be Controversial. Easy to do in the UK...just mention Brexit but it can be dangerous. Click To Tweet
These content ideas can work for any niche. Just plug in your niche to the ideas and see for yourself. You’ll soon have a plethora of ideas and will never run out of them, so that you can generate content on a regular basis for your niche.
If you need help creating images, headers and posts for your content, then I highly recommend Canva.
