Blog Content Ideas for Associations imageSimple things to keep in mind can make all the difference in whether a blog post gains traction. Utilizing these three concepts as part of a larger strategy will help increase your association’s followers.

When blogging:

Be Helpful, Instructional, Compelling, Interesting, and Entertaining

  • Find the answers to the questions your audience is asking
  • Develop an angle by taking a boring topic and asking yourself the 5 Ws (who, what, where, when, and why)
  • Use facts, numbers, and data
  • Address the challenges your audience is facing
  • Share real-life examples

Be Accurate and Credible

  • Get your facts straight
  • Remember, trust is earned
  • Give credit to your sources

Be Timely AND Timeless
Work to find a balance between in the moment and advice for the ages. For timely blog posts, focus on news, trends, and issues. For timeless content (a.k.a. evergreen posts) include topics and information that will still resonate with association members, even if they land on your post months after it was published.
 
By focusing on one tactic every time you blog, you will soon be utilizing a range of blogging techniques that will benefit your association.
