Ever had one of those days when the creativity and the writing just won’t come to you? Those of us whose job it is to create fresh, compelling, and creative content for marketing and social media know just how hard it is some days to get that spark of insight and inspiration into creating, if not award winning content, then content that will rank well and allow your company a good return on investment.
At moments of creative burnout, it’s helpful to have a plan in place in order to overcome our merely human weaknesses (since all content writers consider themselves writing gods, normally). One of my personal plans is to to look through a number of websites on writing, copy editing, marketing, e-commerce, SEO, and even tech blogs. Sooner or later you will always find something that sparks the creative juices. And right on queue, CopyBlogger posted a great resource today to help us all come up with ideas for great marketing content:

Yet they continue to write.
They may grumble about how hard it is to get going and create something solid, but they still do. Again, and again, and again.
They aren’t super-human, and they don’t have magical content-producing powers. So what is the secret?
They do it by pulling out the well-worn toolbox of strategies for creating awesome content.
We highly recommend reading over this article for some well thought out writing and content and marketing tips.
