17 Content Creations Ideas to Inspire You [Infodoodle]

by Verónica Jarski  |  
July 5, 2011

In a MarketingProfs University course for Marketing Writing Bootcamp, instructor Ann Handley answered the oft-asked question "What do I write about when there's nothing to say?"

And so, I pulled out the color Sharpies and doodled Ann Handley's answers for y'all.

Brightly doodled, the 17 content creation ideas covered in the course should inspire beginning bloggers (and, heck, even those with a zillion posts under their belt) to churn out engaging, awareness-building posts all the time.

(Download a one-page PDF of the infodoodle here, if you like.)

    Great ideas. I like 'create blog series'. In a world of isolated articles, its handy to have a guide that joins together disparate bits of info into an actionable plan.

    I think the writing's content must be true and useful. Of course, these are not a vacuum, they are from life, which requires the author has a real and rich experience. When writing the article, the authors also need to know for what to write, for such who, whether they have a role? These are very important.

    I participated in the Course and loved everything I learned. I am having trouble getting the buy in and enthusiasm of our upper management. They only think on Marketing as the "Traditional" sales message. I am hoping I can get creative enough that they will come around to our way of thinking.

    Thanks for the Infodoodle Veronica!

    LOL Never underestimate the power of a colorful doodle. ;)

    So glad you loved the course! Yay! And I'm sorry about getting the enthusiasm of upper management ... I think for those types of folks, you just have to move in baby steps, slowly showing examples of how it works, then little by little, they might start coming around ... Did you check out Christine Whittemore's tips for folks holding back re: social media? %3E

    And you are very welcome. Happy content creation!

    Forget infographs, this is a great infodoodle!! Sharing behind the scenes stories, photos and events are an easy way to open up your business and give the company a real personality.
