You may be thinking about starting a blog. You may already have one. So how do you get content for your blog? Or more importantly, how do you get quality blog content for your blog?
People come to your blog because they like your content. You therefore need to product quality blog content so your visitors keep coming back for more.
Why Do You Need Quality Blog Content?
You might think that it was hard starting a blog. Keeping it going, is harder still. You have chosen a topic for your blog, and now you have to write about it. Endlessly. You want your blog to be successful, whatever your personal definition of success might be, and to do that you know you need quality blog content. Without it, you won’t grow your audience. But, where do you start? Here are some options you may want to consider.
Write Your Own Quality Blog Content.
Let’s start with the easy one. You can do it yourself. If you are just starting out with your blog, this is certainly the best option for you. Why?
- The audience will identify with you and your ‘voice’.
- You can choose your own topics.
- It is the cheapest option.
You may not write all your content in the future, but you should certainly start writing it. People will keep coming back to your blog because of you, and the way you think and write.
You may think that doing it yourself is too difficult, and you have no idea where to start. Although there is no real shortcut to the actual writing, there are many ways you can make it easier for yourself. Take a look around this blog, and find some of the tips and tricks designed to make blogging easier.
You will probably find that once you know what you are doing, and you have a system and a plan, that you enjoy it.
This sounds a great option. However, it may not be quite as ideal as you first think. Outsourcing original quality blog content for your blog usually takes time to get it just right. This is because you will invariably have some issues. You will have delays. You will have writers who either aren’t very good or don’t write as you would like them to write. And many more.
You also have to be very careful with duplicate content. This is a bad thing in so many ways. Your blog will be penalized and the person you got the ripped off copy from (without knowing it) is highly likely to be pretty annoyed. Worse than those is that lawsuits can be filed against you for plagiarism.
If you are outsourcing, then make sure you use Copyscape.com as it is the best copy tester available to ensure you’re getting top unique, quality blog content.
Private Label Rights (PLR).
When other people create content, they can sell it without, or with private label rights. If you buy some PLR articles, they are yours to do with as you will. You can either;
- Buy PLR membership for a PLR site.
- Buy packs of PLR articles from reputable sellers.
Some PLR is rubbish, some is excellent. If this is the way you want to add content to your site, then try to find one of the very good writers that are out there. Just remember, if you are buying it, then many other people are buying it too. So it is not exclusive. You will need to rewrite the content but you may find that easier than starting from scratch. If nothing else, then you can use it for ideas.
Regardless of how you get your content, always ensure it’s top-notch quality. People don’t like reading junk (they get enough with junk email), so you should aim to entertain, educate, and inspire with the words you digitally impart to your blog. Have the desire that every single piece of your blog content, is quality blog content. And they will come.
