Seven Ideas For Corporate Blog Posts
Smiling Llama.jpgSeven - ahem, unique - posting ideas for your corporate blog:

1. Get personal.  Talk about yourself a little.  There, that's good.  Oh - not too much!
2. Scratch another blog's back.  Forget your own company for a few minutes and compliment someone else.  Be sincere.  Make 'em blush.
3. Go Bizarro.  Go against your habits and do something unexpected, something opposite to your normal post topics.  Yeah, it's a bit of a risk - but variety is the spice of life.
4. Get on a soapbox.  Stomp your feet and make a bold claim or announcement.  As long as you know what you're talking about, people will stop and listen.
5. Put up a photo.  Show people what your work space looks like.  Flex your arms, stick out your tongue - be a human somehow.  (Just an idea.)
6. Tell a story.  Personal experiences can make powerful post material.  Or maybe share a simple symbolic example and relate it to your blog topic.
7. Reward your readers.  Find someone to reward and a reason to reward 'em.  Think of a fun prize and send it their way.  And blog about it.
