How pro writers come up with brilliant content ideas that generate traffic like gangbusters

The folks over at Copyblogger know a little bit about using great content to generate gobs of traffic. They get roughly 7 million views per month.

You might think their team of badass, highly paid copywriters are to credit—and they are—but that’s not all.

The truth is, Copyblogger’s copywriters aren’t more talented wordsmiths than you; they’ve just studied the data to find out what works and what doesn’t work. Plus, chances are they’ve been at it a little longer and have a few more tricks up their sleeves.

All writers get in ruts, but professional writers rarely get stuck. Why? Because—due to tight deadlines and much-needed paychecks on the line—they have come up with some tried-and-true techniques to guarantee brilliant content ideas, every time.

Make these 22 techniques your own, and you too will never be short of brilliant content ideas.
