It is important to have a plan when developing website content ideas, whether for promoting your blog, any and all of your press releases or your promotional video ideas. From there, your content is then distributed through normal online channels and those who follow you through social media.

10. An interview – People who are interesting, informative or otherwise shed light are worth writing about.
11. Raising a good question – Solving problems can sometimes be easier that raising a good question. Just raising the question is enough to make good content. Let your readers be left with the problem of offering potential solutions.
12. Insight – Revelations or epiphanies are great content. These do not require to be earth-shattering.
13. Events – Events, parties, get-togethers or gatherings of any type are worth providing content. Small or large, events can be a source of something share.
