Fridays with Vicky 40
Have you ever gotten stuck when it comes to content ideas?
Do you feel like you have nothing to write about?
We all feel like that at some point. Great thing is there are tons of tools that can help your creativity flow again.
I was in the same situation, I needed some new content ideas for this website. I had 15 minutes to crank out some suggestions.
I picked out 5 tools. A content creation tool, a title generator tool, a keyword tool, a social tool and a social platform. 5 tools/websites that will help with content suggestions.
These are all free tools that I use to generate ideas. Here`s the result…
15 Minutes, 5 Tools and 1038 Content Ideas
I set the alarm on the phone for 15 minutes, let`s see what we can come up with.
Since I need content suggestions for this site, itsvicky.com. I will be using keywords / ideas generated from website creation and blogs.
Hubspot generated 10 suggestions with my keywords, when I was playing around with it for a few minutes. The way it works is that you type in 3 different nouns and it generate 5 suggestions at the time. I had to adjust the suggestions afterwards for them to make sense. It`s a decent tool to generate some quality content ideas.
Here are three suggestions from the HubSpot tool:

- 7 Things About Websites Your Boss Wants To Know
- The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard About…

I have not gone through them all but I can see the use of it. Using this tool gave me ideas to work with for months.

I like Buzzumo because it brings up ideas and suggestions that have been shared on social media by many. Which means the titles and content is proofen to work. I got 12 quality suggestions within a few minutes, just from the most shared tab. I also like using “trending now” which gives you hot topic to write about now.
Buzzsumo is easy to use, type in the keyword and it will start generating articles that has been shared on social media.

Ubersuggest is a keyword tool, but another great place to get content ideas. Using this tool I got 366 suggestions within seconds.
Ubersuggest take your keyword and add something in the beginning or the end of it, to make a new suggestion for you. They go through the alphabet to give you as many suggestions possible. This can give you a lot of new great ideas.
Here are some of the suggestions;
Digg can be a great place to find content ideas. Type in your keyword in the search bar and it will give you some suggestions. I got 6 content ideas that I can put to use. These were probably the most contriversial suggestions, with a different spin. I like that.
Generating the suggestions only took me 15 minutes, going through them all took some time as well. Some of the tools generate quality where some are geared towards quantity.
Which one do you prefer when it comes to generating content, quality or quantity? Would love to hear from you below,
Have a productive day,
