There are various techniques bloggers use to get unique and top quality content on their blogs. Many of the techniques let you get free content while others need a little or some investment. Here are a few ideas that can get you loads of quality content. Mostly, what you need to do is to review and publish.
Let’s start with the free methods to get top quality content on your blog:
1. Invite Guest Bloggers
There are many bloggers within your niche who are looking to share their unique content on related blogs and the only thing they want in return is link credit. So, create a page or post on your blog inviting guest bloggers to share their unique content. Give them one or two link credits at the end of the article in the form of a short bio and they will be happy in doing so.
You might have joined some niche forums while thinking about promoting your blog there, so throw the invitation there too, and you’ll find a good number of people interested in writing for you for free!
2. Interview a Celebrity in Your Niche
Celebrities are not necessarily to be from showbiz, fashion or the glamour world, but anyone who is a well known expert in his field is a celebrity. So, design a template of interview questions and send interview request to multiple people. When they answer your questions, you just need to do quick fixes and publish it right away. If it’s a health blog, interview various doctors, dietitians, dentists etc. if it’s a web hosting blog just like mine; interview the technical support manager, the fraud department head, or any web hosting gurus and so on.
3. Answer Your Visitors’ Questions
Do you know why people like Google a damn lot? It’s because, Google helps you find exactly what you are looking for. According to researches, the best websites on the Internet are those which solve users’ problems. Normally users post their query in the form of a comment, so you can publish a post or create a page telling users that they can get real time help on their queries. Keep the comments moderated. Find the answer to the query, write it in your own words, add your opinion and publish it.
On top of the above strategies, you can also get good quality content with a little or some investment. Let me share with you 2 methods below.
1. Organize a Blog Writing Competition
You might be amazed to hear that there is a big number of individuals who blindly run after fame, specifically the high school and university students. They have good command over the language and their subject matter and just want to see their write up appear on some reputable websites. So, why not attract them with a reward, either some cash or hiring them as volunteer editors. But, be careful while designing the competition structure, i.e. develop it in a way that it gets you maximum exposure and good quality content. Keep it open for all ages, publish all the good entries and use open voting. The one gets more votes is the winner.
2. Hire a Professional Writer
This is definitely the quickest strategy to get good quality content quickly. There are many websites which you can find and hire good writers, one such website which I usually use is oDesk. You can also get pretty good freelance writers on project basis. Oh, I do understand that this is perhaps the most expensive option for good quality content.
So, there you are, a few strategies you can try and use to get good quality content quickly. If you’re an individual blogger and want to make your blog popular by publishing a lot of quality content, you might end up with a writer’s block. The best way to manage quality + quantity is to think out of the box and use techniques that reduce your efforts, so you can utilize your time and energy on promoting your blog for better visibility!
