Content Marketing: Blog Post Ideas for Products OR Services

Are you content marketing? Looking for blog post ideas?

According to this infographic, your content will vary if you’re selling products vs. services. Makes sense! My kudos to Matt Mansfield of 1000ContentIdeas for his insights (I did alter the color scheme! ;-) )

Content marketing includes more than your blog, but I think you’ll find this infographic a valuable source of blog post ideas! Definition of content marketing from CopyBlogger:

Content Marketing means creating and sharing valuable free content to attract and convert prospects into customers, and customers into repeat buyers. The type of content you share is closely related to what you sell; in other words, you’re educating people so that they know, like, and trust you enough to do business with you. source

Bonus: Valuable freebies at that link!

More insights from Matt:


  • If your product is not a commodity, then create content that highlights the unique value it provides.
  • If your product is a commodity, or just plain boring, then hook folks in with helpful information and advice – both of which will build the trust needed to make sales happen.


  • It’s harder to differentiate yourself using benefits on the service side as many others will offer the same types of services.
  • However, you can build trust by explaining the ins-and-outs and benefits of the services you provide. This is a great way to establish your expertise and qualifications, both of which build the trust needed to make sales happen.

Pin the infographic so you’ll always have content marketing and blog post ideas handy!
