Find Fresh Ideas in Social Media

Copyblogger wrote this about keywords mainly. You may find some new ideas to add to your keywords list but, better yet, watch for topics you haven’t written about yet, or new topics coming up.

Search social media for your keywords. Find others who talk and/ or write about your topic and keep track of them.

Give credit to the source for the information and ideas you find. Let them know what you liked about their post and tell them how you were inspired to do more with it yourself. This is a great way to make contact and use social media to meet people you may not have approached usually. Don’t stick to just people who are authorities in your same topic. Branch out, find connections and bring old information into new uses.

From CopyBlogger:

Write down, word for word, what people are saying about your topic. You might find a phrase, a sentence, or a full paragraph … you never know what’s going to show up on a given day.
