Content Generation Idea: Featuring Local or Regional Celebrities
Hello all. I hope you've been following along with my series on 101+ content generation ideas
and enjoying reading them as well as picking up some actual content generation ideas. Oh just to clarify the obvious by the way, just in case, what we mean by "content generation ideas
" are just ideas for things you can write about! As we all sometimes struggle to come up with blog post ideas, article ideas etc. And obviously we want to write about something that's worth reading. Something that will work on favour and benefit to your blog and the people that read your content and posts. And one of those ways to give people something interesting to read that can work out in both your favours (your site and its readers) is to provide content that features local or regional celebs!
Featuring Local or Regional Celebrities
Okay in one of my last content generation idea posts I spoke about how you can use new book publishers for content generation ideas. How you can reach out to them to interview them about their new book. And if you're in a niche that their book covers or touches on in some way then that can have a lot of benefit for your site. But those new book authors will be looking for all the publicity they can get to help them promote and market their book. And likewise, celebrities rely on publicity as it's how they make their living!
And if you do this right, you can reach out to those local celebs, or even those regional ones and interview them and then feature that interview as an article/post on your site/blog. The trick is though is to contacting them in the right way and through the right medium. Making sure that your request lands on the right desk at the right time sort of thing.
At the basic level you could just tweet them or send them a message on Facebook or something and ask them them if you could hold a quick interview with them or even if they would answer a few questions and in return you'll post about them on your site which you'll share to your social media followers and blog readers and the like.
And most celebs, at least those that aren't quite "world famous" yet, would go for that if it means they get some free extra publicity and promotion from it. Of course, I know you're thinking, but my blog isn't about what those celebs do, but if they are local to your business or even regional, by writing about them, that can also improve your local and or regional rankings too.
And as for which types of celebs to contact for this reason, it could be any kind of celebrity from politicians to business CEO's, Directors and leaders of non-profit organisations etc. It could be Olympic athletes, world record achievers, local athletes or sporting heroes (whoever scored the winning goal for the last local football club team game win for example).
So as you can see, that's basically how you would do this and can use those local or regional celebrities for content generation ideas. You would just have to find a way to interview them basically. It could be done on the phone, on Skype or Whatsapp or even by Email. Or you could even meet them and record it which you can then turn into a Podcast as well.
And I think that says all that needs to be said on how to feature local or regional celebrities for coming up with content ideas.
Is this something you do for content generation reasons?
Do you / have you ever interviewed a local or regional celebrity?
