Happy 2010! Hope everyone had a good holiday and is sticking to their New Year’s Resolutions! We are here to help start 2010 with a bang by dropping some hot linkbait ideas for this cold month of January. By looking at some of the topics and finding a way to relate to your field, you can harness the momentum of that topic and hopefully get more traction with your content! Here are some topics that are going to be really popular in this first month of January!
- The Super Bowl
Sure, the Super Bowl is in February, but January is the time of the year to go after Super Bowl linkbait. Break down the teams, relate it to your business… but hurry before sites get too saturated!
- Things to Look Forward to in 2010
Whether it be movies, gadgets, albums releases… people love articles that lay out the good things to come. So put together the best things that relate to your blog/industry to boost your awareness.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
The 18th of January is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in honor of one of the most influential Americans ever. Chronicling the breakthroughs that have happened because of him, looking in on his past or any type of analysis that can be done on Dr. King will always do well in social media (and outside of social media!).
- TV Shows Coming Back
A few shows came back in December, but the biggest US TV shows are coming back this month and there are plenty of opportunities to break down what has happened since the last season, how the new season is going and much more.
- 2010 Predictions
This was hot last month and will remain hot throughout the month. If you have expert knowledge in a specific area, make some educated guesses as to what will happen this year in your industry.
With the world’s tallest building opening yesterday, there is a great deal of information that can be put together around this new (financially troubled) super destination.
- Golden Globes
The ‘pre-Oscar’ awards occur on the 17th and are a great indicator for the Oscars. Breaking down who wins, what they wear, winners, losers, who got hosed and who didn’t deserve to win could all be potential Golden ideas.
- Lost Premiere
This gets its own bullet point as it technically launches in February and is the last season of the hit show. Lost fans are really passionate and gung-ho about the series so recaps/breakdowns/comparisons/predictions should perform well.
