How to Find CONTENT IDEAS for Social Media (2019 TOOLS AND HACKS!)

By | August 10, 2019


What’s up, everyone? Welcome back to my channel. Now, in today’s video, you are actually in
for a treat because I’m gonna share with you my tips, tricks, secrets, and hacks on how
exactly I find fresh new content ideas for social media. So, regardless if you are a YouTuber, an Instagrammer,
a podcaster, a blogger, I guarantee that as long as you are a content creator, this video
is gonna help you so much because inevitably at some point in your content making career,
you’re gonna run out of ideas. I run out of ideas all the time. And, so that’s why to help you fix this problem,
I’m actually gonna share with you the things that I do to keep me inspired everyday, so
if you want me to help you solve this problem that is super common amongst content creators,
then keep on watching. Now, the first hack that I have is a Chrome
plugin that’s free called keywords Keywords Everywhere. Keywords Everywhere is one of my favorite
free Google plugin extensions because it is a keyword research tool that not only helps
you boost your SEO and allows you to do research on that, but it also allows you to actually
come up with fresh content ideas. Now, I know that me explaining it isn’t going
to do it justice, so I’m gonna share my screen and show you the power of this plugin. All right, guys, so I’m gonna show you Keywords
Everywhere in action. So, after you’ve downloaded Keywords Everywhere,
the Google plugin, what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna go on the Google search engine. Now, let’s say your niche is in the health
category, or maybe you’re in beauty, something like that, something that’s not my niche to
make things interesting, so what you’re gonna is is you’re gonna search up your initial
content idea, so let’s say it’s gonna be healthy food for weight loss. Let’s just do that, healthy food for weight
loss, so let’s say you’re in that category. What Keywords Everywhere is gonna show is
you how often this is searched for per month. This is really great to understand how popular
your topic is. Secondly, it’s also gonna show you related
keywords, so that means that when people search healthy food for weight loss, something that’s
related is list of vegetables for weight loss, weight loss foods for men, greens weight loss,
so on and so forth, foods to eat to lose weight in stomach. These are things that are related to this
keyword. But, not only this, it also shows you what
people are also searching for on top of this keyword. This is where the money is at in terms of
figuring out what content to do. Because you know that people in your audience
are searching for healthy foods for weight loss, now you also see what else they search
for. For instance, very low calorie diet, quick
weight loss foods, Indian food for weight loss, list of fruits for weight loss, what
else, what to eat to lose weight in two weeks, belly fat tips, brown rice weight loss diet
plan, food combining plan for weight loss, how to jump start weight loss after 40, best
foods to beat belly fat. There’s so many different keywords that people
are using or that people are actually searching for, so not only are you gonna create content
on healthy food for weight loss, what you can also do is create content around these
things that other people are searching for. This is why I love this plugin because anytime
that I’m stuck in a content rut, I immediately turn to Keywords Everywhere in order to figure
out what content to create, and it never fails me, so I definitely wanted to share this key
tip, and not only this, what I want to teach you guys is that when you’re creating content,
it’s really important to actually create content that people are searching for, that people
are actually looking for, and by doing this, it’s going to ensure that you’re gonna get
eyeballs on your content because people are actually looking for it, so definitely Keywords
Everywhere, my favorite plugin to use whenever I’m in a content rut. The second tip or hack that I have is that
instead of focusing on the end result on what type of content you wanna produce, take it
a step back and actually ask yourself what questions is my audience asking because one
of the easiest ways to come up with content is to actually answer questions that people
have. For instance, many of you asked me how do
I come up with fresh new content ideas? So, that’s why I created this video. Apply the same concept to any blog post, podcast
episodes, or YouTube videos that you’re thinking of. Now, to help you with this, in order to find
the questions that your audience is asking, a really great way to do this is going on
forums like Quora, Reddit, and even Facebook groups. Go into these forums and check out what questions
people are really asking, and start collecting a list of these questions to inspire you for
your content idea. Again, I’m gonna share my screen to walk you
through how I would do it. All right, guys, so right now, I am on www.quora.com,
which is a huge forum where people ask questions, so let’s say you are in the beauty niche. Let’s switch up the niches. I’ll search up makeup. I’ll search this, then literally what I’m
gonna is I’m actually gonna look through the questions that people are asking, so for instance,
does makeup increase your makeup? Do boys prefer girls with or without makeup? How do you apply makeup flawlessly? How much makeup do you usually wear? Why do people wear makeup? What is your best makeup advice for a beginner? What do you look like without makeup? These are the things that people are super
interested in, and what you can do too is you can actually search it by type, so you
can search it by questions, and just look at the questions that people are asking in
terms of makeup. What are some beauty hacks for makeup? What is the best foundation? What are the best makeup brushes? These are things that people are asking for. What you can also do is look at posts. What are people posting with the subject of
makeup; blogs, you can really filter it out and get quality content from Quora that can
inspire you for your next social media post, your next YouTube video, your next podcast
episode, so as you can see, Quora is a really awesome way to collect questions that people
are asking to inspire your content, and not only are you gonna use Quora. You can also go on Reddit. You can also go on Facebook groups that are
within your niche. So, let’s say you are in the beauty niche;
you’re gonna join a bunch of beauty Facebook groups and actually be a part of that community
or even other forms that are even more niche like makeupalley.com. There’s all these forums that exist for you
to capitalize on and actually inspire you for your content. Now, let’s say you’re super busy, and you
don’t really have time to actually go into all these forums one by one and collect all
these questions. Well, you’re in luck because I’m actually
gonna give you a shortcut, which brings me to hack number three, and that is answerthepublic.com,
and again, instead of telling you what it is, I’m just gonna show you. All right, guys, so this is answerthepublic.com,
and what answerthepublic.com, if you’re feeling lazy, and you don’t want to continuously go
through forums, you can actually ask your questions in answerthepublic, and what it
does is it spits out all the questions people are asking on the internet. So, let’s use another niche. Let’s say it is the sports car niche. Let’s say you create content around sports
cars. So, I’ll search sports car in the search engine
right here. I hit enter, and what it’s gonna do is that
it’s gonna filter out a bunch of questions that the internet is asking, so that you can
save time, and you don’t have to go through all these forums. So, as you can see, right here, by searching
up sports car, 61 questions popped up, so who invented the sports car? Can a sports car be automatic? Which sports car should I buy? Which sports car are you? Which sports has the most leg room? What sports car is good in snow? What sports car is good on gas? So, with answerthepublic, you can really get
a bunch of questions that people are literally asking on the internet that they’re actually
searching for answers for and that you can create content that gives them the answer,
so this has been really helpful as a tool in order to come up with content creation. Now, the last hack or tip that I have for
you is probably the most effective way to make sure that your content is on point, and
that is to literally ask your audience. Something that I do is every time I feel like
I’m running out of ideas, I immediately go to Instagram stories and actually ask my audience
using the questions or poll feature on what exactly they want to see from me, and by doing
this, it has helped me so much because there is absolutely no guess work. By directly polling your audience, you’re
pretty much for sure guaranteed that at least one person is gonna watch your content because
they literally asked for it, and especially when you start to see patterns on things that
people are asking you questions about, you know that that is a solid piece of content
to do, so again, make sure that you are leveraging Instagram and actually asking your audience
every couple months on what exactly they wanna see from you. Not only this, if you wanna take it a step
further, do what I did and actually create your own Facebook group where your audience
can actually be inside of and create a community of people who are constantly asking questions. In the fearless boss network, that’s tons
of data for me to actually collect and in the future create content on. Constantly, people are in that group asking
so many questions, and not only do I answer it one on one most times, but I also collect
that and actually create a video out of it, so that more people can benefit from the answer,
so all in all, of those hacks and tips that I gave you, what is the key takeaway? The key takeaway is that if you are not creating
content that people are actually searching for or content that people actually care about,
then I hate to break it to you, but your content will never be found. That’s why I hope with the tips and tricks
that I gave you, that you’re gonna be able to make better decisions on your content and
making sure you’re delivering true value to people, true things and answers that people
are actually looking for, and I promise you that eventually your content or your business
if you do content for business will be found. That being said guys, I hope that this video
was helpful to you. Make sure that you comment in the comment
section. That was so redundant, but make sure you comment
below and tell me which path you liked the best and also if you have your own hacks that
I didn’t mention, so that you can share your knowledge to others. I really hope that you guys have a great day,
a great week, and a great life, and I’ll see you in the next video. Bye, guys!

    Hi Vanessa! Trying to figure out what would be considered a low "comp" number… we need high search volume and low competition, but I am not finding an answer to what is actually considered "good" in regards to this. I know the range is 0-1, so obv the lower the better, but a lot of what I am looking up, the lowest numbers I see are .3-.5 and I am wondering if this is low enough or if it should .0something to have the ability to rank. Thoughts? Thanks so much for all your great content!

    I never have a shortage of ideas for videos – I have a list of 71 planned – but the editing takes a lot of time, so the key is: What are people actually searching for? I live in the Washington Cascades, but found out hike videos and bears eating plums don't get many views. And my time lapse videos on dyeing silk are barely being seen. So the tools you mention are really important to find where the traffic is. I need to look at the question angle too.

I know that you had said to try and pick one niche as far as content goes but what if you are someone like me that wants to share tips on living my best life after 50? I wanted to include a little of everything that I love? Makeup, health, decor, healthy foods, morning routines, favorite reads etc. what’s your advice. Plus I am renaming my Instagram to fit my niche. Thank you for the amazing info. I am binge watching as we speak.😉
