    Darren, Love this idea. I bet a contractor can get 50+ blog ideas per vendor! 10 vendors…1 blog a week = 10 years of blogs! 🙂

    I’ll reach out to you soon. Got your email.

    Great stuff. I’m working on writing the 30 blog posts you recommend, this should make it easier. Thanks Darren.

    Great post Darren! Just to take your post one step further, asking the manufacturer or vendor to write the post themselves is another angle. It’ll give your blog some diversity, allow them to get some possible SEO juice, and take the burden of writing the article off of you.

    If they’re not comfortable writing the article signing up for a dictation service is also another angle. We’ve used a firm where we call into a voice mail box and leave a dictation. The message then gets converted to a digital sound file and typed up for us. After a little editing we have content for the site or for a blog post.

    Thanks again for all the great ideas!

      Thanks Mike for stopping by and commenting! I think just doing it and getting started is the key!
