    Hello mates,

    Today I want to share with you my best tips for what to do when you just do not have anymore ideas for articles :)

    Let?s face it, we all run out of ideas eventually for our articles.

    Once you get heavily into article marketing you can burn out if you want to do a lot of articles in your niche.

    Writing five new articles a week on a topic is easy if you have a lot of expertise. In fact, I can write articles about Internet marketing, entrepreneurship, and similar topics all day long and never run out of words! :cool:

    But in other niches you might totally run out of ideas after you do 15?20 articles :banghead:. If that niche is making you money what do you do now :yell:?

    Try these :reddy::reddy:Three things?


    • Do COMPLETE rewrites of your own articles, mixing concepts from two or three different articles.
    • Get fresh ideas from other people?s articles.
    • Hire freelancers to rewrite your old articles.


    Let's look at each one of these in more detail?

    Do COMPLETE rewrites of your own articles mixing up ideas and concepts.:biggrin1::biggrin1::biggrin1:


    Basically you need to develop the art of recycling your own content. Here?s a checklist of things you can try ? you will be surprised how easy it is once you get the hang of it.

    ------------------------------Tip-----------------------------------------

    Use some Free Article Spinner to help you quickly rewrite your existing articles.:smoker:

    I recommend just scanning through your article and right-clicking on words to find good replacements from the synonym thesaurs

    You can have a brand new article in less than 5 minutes.

    ----------------------------end of tip---------------------------------------


    Turn a positive article into a negative article. (or vice versa)

    If the original article is
    ?7 Things You Must Do Before You Try To Quit Smoking?

    re-position the article as

    ?7 Things You Must NOT Do If You Want To Quit Smoking Forever.?

    Split two or three articles into pieces, and rearrange them into new articles. I find this is easy if you do ?list-based? articles. Just take all the things on the lists, rearrange them into new groups, and rewrite the text.

    Simple!

    Grab some PLR (Private Label Rights) articles :bebored: in your niche and turn them into list articles.

    Often the quality of PLR is very bad :sad6:. But if you can find some good PLR articles in your niche you can use those to get ideas and turn them into list articles.

    Turn each one into a ?positive? and a ?negative?. You will double your output.

    Research the ?most viewed? articles on EzineArticles.com and other article directories to get ideas.

    Do a little research not just in your niche but related niches.

    So if your niche is ?acne,? do some research on ?skin care,? ?scar treatments,? etc., and you will probably get a bunch of new ideas.

    Talking about researching other people?s articles leads me to the next option?

    Get fresh ideas from other people?s articles.

    You do not want to STEAL someone else?s ideas which is just plain wrong and bad karma.:cussing:

    But really there are not that many totally original ideas for articles out there.

    Most of it has been said before.

    The only question is: Can YOU say it BETTER?

    So I spend quite a bit of time researching how other people position their articles. How they write their titles. How they write their resource boxes.

    That can really give you a fresh perspective. Maybe they can help you crank out another 20?30 articles without too much brain drain!

    Here are my best tips for getting fresh ideas from other people?s articles:

    Try rewriting the idea in your unique style.

    Often I find a really good article but it is written in a way I would NEVER write it. Maybe it is too formal or stiff. Maybe it is not list-based.

    So I give myself a challenge: Can I rewrite this article completely so it is in my own unique style with my own unique spin?

    A lot of times not only will I come up with a completely new and unique article but while I am writing I will get ideas for more articles.

    Very nice.

    Now can you put negative spins on positive articles?

    Negative campaigning may not be cool in politics but it is often very helpful in article marketing. If you find a lot of articles on ?what you should do? see if you can come up
    with ways to turn them into ?what you should NOT do? articles.

    Look at articles in related niches. Do not just stick with your niche. Do a little sideways research. Often writers who are not in your niche have great ideas that you can adapt to
    your niche.

    Check out all the popular article directories for ideas.

    EzineArticles.com is my #1 place for doing niche research but for getting ideas look at some of the other directories.

    I like IdeaMarketers.com a lot for this type of research.:fisheye:

    Look at the most viewed articles and analyze the titles. See the points they are making throughout the article.

    There you have it.

    Lots of fresh ideas you can take and turn into new articles.

    Those new articles will get you more traffic, leads, and sales so you can grow your business and in return make the amount of income you want to buy and do the things you want in life.

    Oh the thread gone really big sorry...:tape2: i gonna stop it here & have a drink right now (it's really Thirsty) :drinking5

    Great post, ComRade667!

    I used to do article marketing and syndication years ago; maybe half a decade, I guess. Is it still worthwhile to post them to EZA? I remember being able to target the right keywords and, hours after winding up on EZA, they'd be hitting the first page of Google, often the #1 spot. And then you had people taking it to an entirely higher level and heaving out 10 or 20 articles a day. I've heard that article syndication is the way to go now, but how about just using EZA? I actually have a problem right now where I'm unable to feed 2 of my content writers enough work for December. I was considering having them write an ebook, but you've reminded me of EZA. Maybe this is still viable? If so, I could give them that.

    Mate EZA is the best way to go...its effective strategy for promoting your website. However, after penguin & panda update; a lot of issues arises regarding article submission sites. Many of the webmasters started to ask whether submitting their articles on article directories still worth? Yes, it's still effective. :)

    But, you've to post very unique high quality content (Informative). As you already know, how people often post articles on article directories (Spin, Spun, Spun...) :angryfire
    Post your articles in relative niche, it helps to boost the traffic. Even people think, if their article doesn't get 500's of hits, it doesn't work. It's completely wrong and you should continue submitting your articles. It definitely work.
    As you see, EZA has top Alexa, which means traffic still there. If your article goes to Google organic result and get syndicated, you gain more. It's an added benefit for you.

    Thanks for the detailed answer, dude. You've inspired me so I'm going to give it a bash throughout december and see how it works out. I'm still making money from articles I posted around half a decade ago, so I'd be happy if I can get back into it. Thanks for taking the time to reply!

    Very informative post. Someone had also shared a tool that generates 100 article ideas for every keyword you enter. Here it is (can't post links yet)
