Content doesn’t start when you design a pretty graphic, or even when your cursor is blinking in a Google Document. It starts with an idea.

Perhaps one that involves tricking a genie?

If your idea isn’t solid, you’re setting yourself up for failure. It doesn’t matter how wonderful your article is or how stunning your graphic — or even how hard you try to pitch or promote it — if the idea wasn’t a good one, well, your content is probably screwed.

This week I run through key ideation process tips. You’ll learn:

  • Every element a fully fleshed out “idea” needs
  • Five ways to get inspiration right now

So put on your thinking hat — ahem, lampshade? — and get to it!
