Are you struggling to come up with blog topic ideas for your business-to-business (B2B) company? Whether you’re just getting started or your content needs a refresh, try out these 5 slam-dunk topic ideas.
This one may seem a bit obvious and yet it so often gets overlooked! Case studies are great because they showcase how your company solved a problem for a client and offer detailed examples of the work you do. Decide which project and client you would like to write a case study on and ensure that you will have all of the important information you need. That means data to show your success, a story to outline the client’s problem, and a testimonial from the client to support your study. If you are going to write a case study blog, go big or go home. Really dive in to what worked, why it worked, and provide the evidence to support it!
Do you have one person in your office dedicated to writing blogs? That’s just fine, but every once in awhile recruit someone with a different point of view to write. Ask an expert in your office with knowledge on a specific subject to blog about that subject in the first person. Not only will it provide a different perspective to your company blog, it will be perceived as highly trusted knowing it came from the company expert in that area.
Conference or Event Recap
If you just attended a conference or event in your industry, capitalize on that content and write a recap blog. Providing a recap to your followers who were unable to attend the event will help them to see what they missed and view you as the trusted source for industry information. Not only can they rely on you to keep them in the loop, they will also view you as an industry leader because you attend these important events.
Is there something big going on in the news that relates to your industry? If it is not directly related, could you draw some sort of comparison between your company and this event? According to Denamico, newsjacking is “when you piggyback on to a bit of news which is trending and relate it to your business.” While you will need to jump on this piece of news and turn the blog around in a short amount of time, newsjacking is a great way to show your followers that you are up to date with current trends.
