Ok, so you finally did the smart thing and started a blog on your Vacation Rental website. You even wrote your obligatory (but not needed or rarely read) “Welcome to our new blog” post. So now what? Are you stuck trying to come up with ideas to write about? Here are 30 ideas to get you started. As “numbered list” topics are very popular, many will be along these lines: “The 5 best [fill in the blank] in [your city]. Put in the appropriate number that makes sense for your list. It could be 3 or 30 like my post here. If you sell your location and attractions, rather than just your rental, you will have much more to talk about, and won’t come off as a pushy salesperson. You can certainly mix in some updates about your property, just don’t focus on it.
Your headlines are what sells your blog post. Make it interesting, mysterious, and leave them wanting more. Have the headline target a specific group so it speaks directly to a potential guest. Not just “Hikers” but “Hardcore Hikers” or “Family Friendly Hikes” or whatever the target market you are going after. Get specific to get results!
