Creating your own content can be a challenge if you publish your own online newsletter or eZine.
However, regardless of the topic you are publishing about, the types of content can be generally divided into four categories, namely factual content, short tips, mini-stories and case studies.
Other than writing your own content, you can get your own unique content the quick and easy way by organizing an interview with an expert or leader on the topic.
This can often be done for free depending on how you approach the person you’d like to interview and if the interviewee is sharing his or her thoughts by writing the content themselves, there is nothing else for you to do other than giving the interviewee something valuable in exchange (maybe a meal!). Seriously though, both parties can each provide something of value in exchange for time and effort spent.
Now if you have money to spare, you could hire a ghostwriter to write your content for you and as a result you take the credit for the content. Recommended professional marketplaces where you can seek out ghostwriters include www.elance.com and www.rentacoder.com.
Another little known and underused method in getting your own content is via public domains. If you are not familiar with the term “public domain”, “public domain” simply means anything that is NOT protected under US copyright law.
This includes ALL works published before 1923 and, under certain conditions, works published up to 1978. And in this case, we are referring “works” to written materials such as reports, articles and books.
Republishing and repackaging public domain information can help you save time and effort from creating new ideas and content as they are readily available. On top of that, you do not have to pay royalties or copyright fees on that work.
If you like the idea of publishing content without having to write anything yourself, then this method is for you.
