Content Generation Idea: Defining Your Industry’s Technical Jargon and Acronyms
Every different industry has its own different terms and jargon, acronyms etc that are related to that industry only that most newbies to that industry don't know the meaning of. And that can make using your site, product or business quite tough going for the people that don't know about, of and understand these technical jargon's and their meanings. That's where you come in!...

You can make a whole post on just those most frequently used jargon's that are used in your industry. Or even do a series of posts to explain all the rest too. All you have to do to create content from these is just to explain each of them in simple laymen's terms that people can understand. That way you can link to this post where they are used so they can find the meaning to them if they need to.

Okay so what are the top 10 jargon words or acronyms in YOUR industry? You can probably start listing some of them out right now. And if you can good! Try to list out as many jargon words related to your industry as you can. Literally write them down on new lines using a notepad file or something. Now also write about the meanings of those jargonized words or acronyms.

As said, you could do one post that lists them all. Or you could make a series of posts talking about one jargon word or acronym at a time. Obviously, there is only so much you can say about some jargon's and acronyms though. And you run the risk of writing tons of fluff as filler content. Don't do that!

I've never thought of this, and yes I agree, it is a great idea. I work in graphic design so I do have a lot of insider knowledge that the average consumer might not know about so I think writing an article like this could be great for me. I think it could also help in guiding the readers on what to look out for and what to give importance to or ignore when they are ordering their own graphic designs. For a long time I have had complaints about clients not understanding enough what it is I do behind the scenes so I guess this would help a lot not only in educating the public but also at the very least just providing me with a therapeutic outlet for my frustrations.

A lot of people are trying to earn money online so this is actually a really good route to go down if you are an expert or have a lot of knowledge of a certain industry or niche. Because of the fact that a lot of people want to get into some popular and good paying industry's, it is a good idea to define a lot of the different technical terms and ideas because it will help them to get into that industry.

Before the internet came along, I joined an essay writing contest with information technology as the subject matter. My piece was pretty long with more than 10 pages. It did not win a major prize but I received a consolation prize of a technical dictionary. The contents are words and terms used in computers and technology. It was a book. Yeah, why not write about the jargon? My niche is dogs so maybe I can start with the breeds of dogs and the terms grooming, spay to neuter, etc. That’s a cool idea. Thanks.

This seems like a good idea, having something that you are very good at and writing on it would definitely give you the best bank of knowledge to have a detailed writing on your subject matter. Whether it's a niche or jargon, you are definitely going have more to write on it.

Well, in as much as it would seem that using jargons or trying to write about them as a content looks promising but I think it's not going to be very lucrative because jargons are limited. It doesn't apply in all fields and folks in the same manner. So, it's more like a compartmentalized content that only apply to people in a specific field.

Love this idea 100 percent. With the internet most people want to learn all they can about a particular field. For example when they want a lawyer or a doctor, they first research the problem themselves so that they are armed before approaching a professional. You can have a blog where you explain professional and technical terms in a simple way that the 'common' man would be able to relate to and understand. For example if you have a symptom e.g headache they are many blogs or websites that can point you to the cause and treatment.
