Timely posts detail the latest information on a subject, but is your business up to snuff on utilising this aspect of social media properly?
You need to display a strong commitment to stay timely in some niches, but if you can pull it off properly, timely news is among the most effective blog content you can create because you will be one of the first to have new information out there.
If you find that keeping up with the latest news trends is too daunting a task, consider creating a series of posts that publishes timely information once per week. This will allow you to keep the appearance of being on top of your game, while you focus on more pressing matters.
The following are 3 blog post ideas that deal with timely content.
A Review Post
Try centring your content around the review of a product or service. Realistically, you can use this method for anything relevant or newsworthy, particularly pertaining to your specific industry or target audience.
For the best results, rather than paint everything in a positive light, be as honest as possible in your review.
The Trend Post
Quality content producers can predict trends as they break. If you’re a trendsetter or trendspotter, try to create posts on your blog that rides a trend as it comes out of the gate.
An Issue Post
Choose issues that affect your audience whilst simultaneously creating content based around these issues while they are timely and relevant to your readers.
