It may not be only related to your field. It can be from anywhere as long as it is useful for them. They will be happy to see that you are guiding them and care about their time. Thus trying to give the best support you can without worrying about competition.
Pro tip– After you have included people blog posts in your posts. Email them & tell them that you liked their post so much that you have linked to them. And ask them to share your post.
They will be happy to do it as they get backlinks, plus an opportunity to get to a newer audience. This will also help you reach a larger audience & many people will know about you. Plus it will build a relationship with those bloggers.
4. Top Influencers In Your Niche
There must be many great influencers in your field that you are learning from and who are helping other people.
Make a post mentioning them and how they are helping people. This will help your audience understand that you definitely care for them & are not afraid of competition.
Rest be assured that they will leave you. They might learn from others & you should be happy that they are doing it, but they won’t leave as you are empathetic to them. Plus there will a sense of reciprocity as you have helped them in some manner.
Also, people love to learn from many sources.
And however competitive the world is, there is always a set of people that will want to learn from you.
After writing the post, email the influencers. Tell them that you have mentioned them in your post and have also linked to their website. They will be happy to share the post.
5. Highlight the Common Mistakes People Make in your Niche
Mistakes are something that we all want to avoid. If we make some mistakes, we will feel ashamed of facing people. And most importantly will fall from our own eyes. Thus we are scared of making any type of mistake.
Although it’s a good thing to make mistakes as we will learn a lot from it. But this is what it is.
So you can highlight the mistakes which you have observed people making. And tell them methods of how they can avoid and overcome it.
It will help you to grow your following as you are helping people to avoid something they are afraid of.
6. List posts with tips on topics in your niche
People want to improve themselves at every stage of their life. They seek advice before taking any decision.
Write a blog post giving them tips on how they can do something better or strategies to follow.
You can also create a post highlighting 10 things you wished you knew before starting that would’ve helped you to do things better and grow faster.
People will love it as you are giving them more than what you received before starting your journey.
7. Beginners Guide
The toughest thing to do is to start a new thing. People face a lot of resistance in doing it. They are unclear how they should start or is afraid to start. Write a blog post handling it.
People seek help in every situation of their life, especially at the beginning. Become that person.
If you do a good job, you will get a fan for the rest of your life. They will be forever thankful that you guided them in the right direction.
If others have already written about it, don’t worry. You can still write about it based on your experience and perspective. In the end, perspective is what matters the most.
Check out this post on The Beginners Guide on Online Marketing written in Quicksprout. You may not go this deep in the topic, but you should definitely write the essentials.
8. Myth Busters
Myths are everywhere. Every niche has it. This is misguiding freshers and leading them in the wrong directions.
Bust the myths around your topic by telling the facts. Also, tell them how the myths are harmful to them.
This will help you gain trust & people will listen to you as you are saving their time and money.
9. Give a Solution to the Problem your target audience is facing
Everyone faces some problems in their journey.
Make a list of problems your audience is facing and solve them. People expect this type of content from you.
This will also help you to establish yourself as an expert and help your audience to trust you. And will help you to get more conversions.
Just keep in mind that in one post you must address just one problem not many. So that you can go deep into that topic and solve their problem completely. With this, your audience will also not be confused about the next steps.
Check out the blog post where I have tackled the problem people face while writing their about us page.
10. Interview An Expert
This is probably the fastest way to develop authority and credibility among the reader.
Interview an expert in your field. Ask them about their journey, their learnings, their challenges and how they overcame them, etc. Record these interviews for youtube videos and Audio files for podcasts. You can also write a blog post about it.
This way you will be on every platform and multiply your traffic. Every expert loves to be interviewed. This way they can reach a newer set of audiences.
Since you will be starting, you might have to approach many experts to get one. But don’t shy away from hard work. It is definitely worth but. You will learn a lot and will also develop a repo with experts which will be handy in the future.
11. Write a Review Post about a Product
With a growing technology, there is a product for everything that makes your life easier. Your target audience is also looking for one.
Write a review of the product that your reader should use or is using.
People love to shop but are afraid of whether their choice is good or not. So they seek other perspectives on that product. Become that person and write a genuine review of the product.
You can also monetize it by using affiliate marketing. But show empathy and care about the reader, not the product. This will help you in building your credibility and people will trust you.
You can take inspiration from this review written by me (a little bit of self-promotion) where I have reviewed Greengeeks Webhosting provider.
12. Ultimate Guide Posts (A-Z Post)
Make a one-stop solution guide on a topic that people could refer to time and again.
Look at this post from Sanjay Shenoy where he has written in-depth content about SEO.
Or you can also write a post of 26 tips/lists using the “A to Z” format. Like I can write on Digital Marketing topics like “A- Authority”, “B-Blogging”, “C-Content Marketing” “D-Domain”, etc.
You can do the same in any niche or industry. This way you can show your knowledge and creativity.
You can also convert it into an Ebook to give as a lead magnet for your mailing list.
13. A Cheat Sheet Post
There is a lot of information around. Although people love to read them they also want something very specific on which they can act without reading lengthy posts.
These are also highly helpful to attract busy people who don’t want to go through 2500 word post to come up with a couple of pointers they can use. This type of posts also saves time and is very helpful, so you will be able to attract a lot of shares as well.
So, write a cheat sheet post on a topic explaining each point in a crisp format. You can also convert the same into a PDF, offer it to grow your list. Like Patt Flynn did with his Email Marketing guide.
14. Top Takeaway post
You might be working on a project or have attended a new conference. You can curate a post describing it and how it helped you.
Share your learnings, experiences,s and how attending conferences can impact people’s life. This will also help people know that you are upgrading yourself regularly.
Plus most of your readers or audience don’t have the opportunity to do what you have done. Your takeaways will make them feel that they have also attended the course or conference.
15. Case Study Posts
Write a detailed post discussing how other people achieved something or how a person’s life can change after using a particular product.
But it is not just a testimonial where you are motivating & encouraging people to use the product by telling their importance.
Your post should be backed by solid data so that people can believe you. Highlight how they overcome the problem and excelled.
Write the whole process in detail. Like Backlinko did in this post where he describes how he increased his Search Engine Traffic by 110% in 14 days.
16. Result Posts (How you achieve Something)
You are blogging or running a marketing campaign for a long time. You have seen many ups & downs. Share our own experience with people and how you achieved results.
What problems you face and how you overcame it. It kind of case study only but with your experience so you will be able to get more personal.
