There truly is nothing new under the sun, and this is especially so in article marketing. So why not jump start your process with a little help from those who have blazed the trail before you? Here are a few ways to find inspiration for your own articles.
Keyword Phrase Research
What key words are members of your target market using to search for information that you can provide? You should be using them in your articles anyway, but also when you find those longer keyword phrases, they can also inspire you with a topic of your article.
Looking for a hungry target market that is ready to buy? Find key word phrases that include the following key words: "How to," "Review" or "Tips."
Yep, you're already here. This is probably the most top ranked article directory, so it is an excellent source of inspiration. When you read enough of what others have written about your topic, you'll find that the same information is regurgitated over and over.
This is a good thing! Now you know what information people want to know. So take that information and re-write it in your own words, giving it your own unique spin and personality. (Do not plagiarize - copy another's words and claim that they are your own - that's illegal!)
Take a look at what others have written and discover what's missing. How can you improve on the information already provided?
Google Alerts
Another way to find ongoing inspiration is to set up a Google Alert for your key words and key word phrases. Be sure to make it a comprehensive search so you'll receive inspiration from all over the web. This little tip brings inspiration directly to your email inbox on a regular basis. And you can decide if it comes in daily, weekly or even as it happens.
