One of the biggest challenges for article marketer is to constantly come up with ideas for articles. If you share this same problem, you should find this article useful. Article ideas are everywhere if you get into the habit of seeking for them.
When I started in article marketing, I spent at least half an hour browsing various sites and blogs for just one idea. Finally after I found that idea I felt exhausted enough I couldn't write anymore. The whole process seemed to be tedious and hard to get through.
After doing it for some time, suddenly I realized ideas are everywhere. I just had to look at it from the right standpoint to capture them - a lot of them.
Ideas often come when you are less prepared for them. It is nice if you have a notepad where you can write down the ideas when they come across your mind.
I also found that you could invite ideas and draw them to your mind whenever you wanted to. For instance, if I was reading a magazine in a grocery store, I could relate a lot of story, even if that article had nothing to do with the topic I was writing about.
Telling a story and then driving the point home with something related to your niche could make a perfect article. People like to read stories and they are great starting point for articles.
Magazines are also rich sources of article ideas. They have spent a lot of work and money to discover what their audience wants to read. You could “steal" their work ethically. No, I am not suggesting that you should copy the article verbatim but you can definitely add more information, put your own touch or tell a different story to make the article different.
By reading a lot of books and other articles in your niche you should be able to come up with ideas. And using the same idea you can brainstorm from different angles and end up with even more ideas.
Nowadays, I still come up with ideas at anytime, but at times when I need it, I can fill a notepad full of ideas for use later. The key is to open yourself to possibilities around.
