Content is king.
Now that Google has declared that content is king that leaves most of us in a position to find those valuable sources of information to repopulate websites, blogs and all things related to online activity. The environment now is such that every word matters. So where is all this new information going to come from? These are some ways I have found to be very helpful:
Repurpose old content – Take your old information and put a new spin on it. You will be amazed at how much new content you will find revising the best of your old content.
Organize data – Most people find interesting information on line and file it. Going back through old files, reviewing the information and then making a summary of it will provide great articles or online material.
Invite bloggers – You can increase your content by asking other bloggers to write for you. One of my favorite sources to find bloggers is on Cathy Stuckers’, Blogger Link Up.
Use databases – Some resources have databases that allow you to pull a certain amount of information for free. For example Ezinearticles will allow you to post up to 25 articles a year.
Post a call for content – HARO and Pitch Rate are good sources to make a call for content. They are free to use. All you have to do to get started is to join their group.
Increasing the amount of content will probably mean that you will need to increase your organizational skills to keep the new information flowing. My recommended organizational tools are Google Reeder and Evernote. It is amazing what can be done with these tools. They will help you to find, categorize, organize and disseminate data very quickly. Don’t allow content creation to be overwhelming. Do a little brainstorming and create as system that works best for you. If you have any tips that make building content easier, share them with us. I have enjoyed writing this article for you and would appreciate it, if you shared it.
