3 radical ways to approach content creation

by Hugh Hancock on May 17, 2012

Want some new ways to create great content for your blog? Coming right up…

From Andrew Chen’s Tim Ferriss-like “Twitter then post” technique to Pushing Social’s great guide to getting content with absolutely minimal time investment, here are some left-field ways to feed the content monster:

  • Andrew Chen’s always good for out-of-the-box thinking – and today he’s describing an excellent way to use Twitter to check if your content will be successful before you write it“Unfortunately, writing a blog post often takes a long time – an hour or more. Use this technique to make it safer to spend more time, think more deeply, and research more broadly on you write.”
  • Is there a better way to turn content into money? Copyblogger’s guest post from Joel Friedlander today suggests that you might want to look at your blog as the feeding ground for a virtual publishing empire“This is the dirty little secret behind self-publishing that we’ve been hiding from the big publishers for years: if you’re a writer with ready access to a niche audience, you’re probably much better off financially publishing your own book.”
  • And Lukas Pleva at Pushing Social explains the apparently impossible in a usefully specific post – how to get content for your blog when you don’t have the time to write it“I’ve successfully hired freelancers from project postings on Guru.com, but here’s a word of caution: always do your research. There’s a lot of noise, and too many stories of people getting ripped off. If I was ever looking to hire guest bloggers, I’d pay the $50 for a ProBlogger posting. As the common saying goes, you get what you pay for.”
