The Power 10 List
You know you have people asking you questions all the time about what you do. You’re constantly answering a variety of questions. Some of them simple, some complex. What are some of the common issues people ask you about? That’s where you start.
Start thinking about it. What are 10 of the topics that people ask you about all the time? Make a list of those 10 topics.
In The Words of DJ Lance, “Ah – Break – It – Down”
Once you’ve got your Power 10 list, start breaking down each of those topics into subtopics. Break those subtopics down even further. Go as far as it seems reasonable.
Now when you start typing your post, write as if you’re speaking directly to the people who asked you that question.

This is a simple method, along with listening and following up on questions and comments prompted by your posts, to give you plenty of great topics to write about. And it will be information that speaks directly to YOUR audience.
