Solutions for the Struggling Article Writer

Navigation


Are you struggling to come up with new ideas for articles? Whether you are a new or veteran writer, this problem can effectively halt your ability to use this method of promotion. So, to help you overcome this, I have compiled a list of things you can do to find new article ideas.

1. Message Boards

Read the posts at message boards to see what people are interested in. You can then write your article on topics that people already want to know more about.


2. Discussion Lists

This is similar to using the message boards. Just read to see what others are posting about and write articles on those subjects.


3. Surveys

You can use a survey to find out what people want to hear more about. There are several places to find people to take your survey. Send the survey to your net contacts, post to discussion groups, post on message boards, put it in your newsletter, or put it up on your website. Offer something of value for free, like an ebook or ecourse, to those who take your survey.

4. Newsletters

By subscribing to and reading newsletters, you can find out what is currently popular. Here are a few directories where you can find newsletters.


5. Keywords

Get article ideas by studying the most searched for keywords, which you can find at these sites.


6. Chat Rooms

Find article ideas in chat rooms by looking to see what questions are being asked and by asking what information the other chatters are interested in.

7. Best Seller Lists

Research what the topics of the best selling books are. Most likely, if there are people buying books on those topics, there are those that will be interested in reading articles on them.


8. Visitor/Subscriber Questions

If you have a website or ezine, you probably have a goldmine of article ideas. Pay attention to the questions your visitors and subscribers ask you. There might be an article hidden in those questions somewhere.

9. News Websites

Check some news sites to find out what the latest happenings are. Then you can research the hot topics and write articles on them.


10. Article Writing Services

If you have tried all of the above methods and you haven’t been able to come up with anything, there is always the option of having somebody else write your article for you. These can get pretty expensive, though, so research thoroughly before selecting a person or service.


I hope that this list has given you a good head start on find new ideas for your articles. Good luck!

Feel free to publish this article in your ezine or on your website, as long as nothing in the article or resource box is changed.
