Let’s review the steps...

Step 1. Ask: What is my topic and what words do I think people would use to search?


Begin by thinking about who your target audience is and what they are searching for. Then consider what value you can provide them by either answering their questions or introducing them to a tool or solution that can help them.  


For example, at CopyAI we help small businesses craft sales messages fast. 


We want to write a blog post that helps the person who is just staring out and is looking for ideas and ways to get started.  


"Starting a business” is a goal and a phrase they would likely search for. They may also be interested in topics like sales page copy, social media, and email marketing.

At CopyAI we use Ahrefs. We like Ahrefs because you can enter a huge amount of seed keywords for researching a topic, which comes in handy after CopyAI has done the brainstorming for you.


There are many other keyword research tools on the market like SEMRush, Ubersuggest, Keywords Everywhere, etc.  They all can help you find keywords that people are searching for around a topic to help you get their attention.  


Run your seed keywords through your tools keyword analyzer.  Scan the output to see what kind of content you are interested in and can help you rank on Google for your blog article.

The goal is to find one or two things that you can write about and that has the best chance of being found.  Pay attention to three things while doing your research:

  • What people are searching for
  • How hard it is to rank for a search term
  • How many searches are performed each month


Delving into the best way to choose those keywords is more than we can cover in this post, but here is an article that can help you get started with a content strategy.


And here are few other things to consider while doing your research that we’ve learned:

  • Look at what else your keywords rank for
  • Make note of the questions people are asking
  • Grab some of the questions and topics that people also search to include in your writing


In our example, we found selected the following long tail keyword phrases from our research

  • small business ideas from home
  • what are good small business ideas 
  • small business ideas for teens
  • small business ideas for women


You can watch us go through the process starting here


Step 4. Bring your selected keywords back into CopyAI and write your post


Once you have your selected keyword phrases, come back to CopyAI.  Paste those phrases in the editor to help you keep track of your notes as you move forward with writing.

This is how we framed our post in this exercise after doing the keyword research for our topic.

What will your blog be about?

  • It will answer the question: what are good small business ideas? It will showcase 10 ideas and highlight which ones are good for teens, women, or other people.
  • Tip: do a quick google search and see what the top ranking sites look like for your topic. This is your competition. Ask yourself how you improve 10X over what already exists.


Select your CopyAI Blogging Tools and favorite them for easy writing access

  • We chose the Blog Title, Blog Intro, Blog Outline, and Bullet Point to Blog tools.


Go through the process of writing each section of your post starting with the title.

  • Use your initial keyword ideas as inputs to begin the creative writing process
  • Remember the goal is to write for SEO and rank. Look at your keyword outputs for adjectives that describe what people are already searching for (e.g. creative, easy, profitable)
  • For each section in your outline, put in a few points that you want to talk about and then let the AI do the rest.
  • If the AI is not giving you the results you want, refine your inputs accordingly.  For example, if your title denotes 10 tips, but you want to focus on just 1 tip, remove the 10 tips from your title.


Here is the end result: 10 Small Business Ideas You Can Start From Home!
