Yesterday we talked about customer’s cleaning questions. By thinking of questions customers have asked about pressure washing, window cleaning, roof cleaning, concrete sealing and other services you offer,you will likely easily be able to come up with blogging ideas to last for awhile. But there are other places to look for content as well.
Today’s Idea: Regurgitate (a.k.a. “reframe”) information that’s already out there. IMPORTANT NOTE: This does not mean plagiarize! However, if you read something interesting that you can turn into a blog, by all means, do so. Like I stressed yesterday, don’t make blogging harder than it has to be.
For example, on November 9, Red Beacon – an organization that helps connect customers with plumbers, handymen, cleaning companies, etc. – posted a nice, concise article entitled the “Importance of Gutter Cleaning Before Winter.” (See our November Cleaning in the News Page to read the piece.)
Rather than write your own article on the topic, your blog can start with something like this:
Want to know why it’s important to clean gutters before winter? Ask Red Beacon – an organization that helps connect customers with plumbers, handymen, cleaning companies, etc.
In a recent article entitled the “Importance of Cleaning Gutters in Winter,” author Lisa Snowden McCray, mentioned four reasons why homeowners should get their gutters cleaned before the cold weather hits.
Gutter cleaning helps:
- Prevent the buildup of unwanted pests, such as mosquitoes, that tend to hang around accumulated water in clogged gutters.
- Prevent water damage and the mold/mildew that can follow.
- Spot potential problems before they occur or worsen.
- Prevent winter storm emergencies.
Even if cold weather has hit, we can still inspect your gutters and head off problems that may occur during the winter. Contact us for more information.
…and there’s your blog, using someone else’s information but making it your own.
A good place to keep up with cleaning-related topics is on our “Cleaning in the News” page(s) where we post news and promotional stories for the cleaning industry. We update the page almost daily, so check often.
One important note, it’s not recommended to just reprint information exactly as it is from other sites. This can lead to penalties from Google. (More on this soon.)
