We’ve posted about how important it is to keep your club website updated by posting fresh, relevant, interesting content to your blog. We’ve shown how updating your club’s blog sets in motion a branded and totally automated social media marketing system that improves your site’s search engine rankings and drives customers to your site over and over.
But that doesn’t mean that blogging is easy.
Let’s be honest: coming up with new topics to post about is challenging for any blogger, regardless of their industry. No matter how creative you are, sometimes you’ve exhausted all of your best ideas, and have already posted about all of your club’s upcoming events, specials and announcements, and still need to post something to your blog to keep up our recommended update schedule of posting 2-5 times per week.
That’s why we’ve put together this free downloadable printable guide: 35 Blog Post Ideas for Your Golf Club Blog.
A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
- They’re not meant to be a list of titles. You can use any of the blog prompts as blog post titles on this list as-is, but we recommend putting your own original take on it and changing the wording to suit your style and your club’s culture.
- You can adapt these prompts however you need. For example, if we have a “Top Five Tips for _____” and you come up with six instead, feel free to make that change – there’s no “right” way to post on your blog!
- They can be inspiration to brainstorm. We’re willing to bet you can come up with many other topics for lists of Tips, ultimate guides to an important subject, or cheat sheets to help your members improve certain aspects of their game. Keep a running list in a notebook for when you need more blog post ideas!
- Let your readers tell you what they want to read about – use the site statistics widget in your site’s dashboard to see what keywords your visitors found you with and what your most-viewed blog posts are – then write more of that! Write a series, a sequel or a follow-up to your most highly read blog posts so that you never run out of things to write about.
And now, without further ado…
