How can you get free blog content and unique articles to post to your website?
Here’s the TLDR; (too long, didn’t read) answer: Terkel.
Terkel is a knowledge platform that creates free articles featuring expert insights.
Here’s how Terkel works (and how you get free blog content).
1. Publishers submit a question through Terkel.
2. Terkel posts the question to their knowledge platform.
3. Experts answer the question, and Terkel converts the best answers into a Google Doc article that can be published on your blog.
All articles from Terkel feature original insights from experts that help engage readers and increase traffic from organic search and social media.
Brands (GoDaddy, Calendly, Keap), member-driven organizations (SHRM, Chambers of Commerce) institutions (University of Arizona, Thunderbird Global School of Management), and media sites (Magazines, News sites) are some of the main publishers who partner with Terkel to create community-driven content for their blogs.
There’s three ways publishers interested in receiving free blog content can obtain unique articles for their website:
- Submit a question
- Claim a question
- Request a custom content strategy
Let’s explore all three options on how anyone from realtors to small businesses can obtain blog content free – without having to use a free blog content generator.
Submit a Question
The first option for getting free content for your blog is to submit a question through Terkel.
First, sign up for Terkel at terkel.io
Complete your profile
Post your question by submitting your url (where the content will be published) and the question you would like experts to answer.
The question will then go to the Terkel team for review, where metrics like authority, traffic, and relevance are evaluated when deciding whether to create content for submissions.
If the question is selected, the Terkel team will notify the publisher via email and the article will be ready for review within 3 weeks.
The article is then delivered to the publisher via a Google Doc. Each article includes:
- Hero graphic featuring the headshots of expert contributors
- Insights from experts offering unique perspectives around the question
- Introduction featuring article summary, optimized for featured snippets in search results
After submission the article can be edited to meet the publisher’s editorial guidelines. Publishers can either receive a Google Doc and publish the article themselves, or they can provide website access to look to the Terkel team to do the publishing.
Claim a Question
Another option to get free blog content is to “claim” a question from Terkel’s platform.
With several articles in development, Terkel has a “Claim Question” section listing questions that are currently unclaimed.
To claim a question, publishers can click the “Claim” button
After clicking “Claim,” a publisher can submit their outlet url (where the content will be published)
If the article is a match for the publisher, the Terkel team will notify the publisher via email and the article will be ready for review within 3 weeks.
Request a Custom Content Strategy
If you are at a loss on how to come up with blog post ideas, you can request a custom content strategy for your blog.
To get started, go to the “Send Feedback” section:
Send a message to the Terkel team to request a custom content strategy for your website (feel free to copy and paste this template):
I would like to receive a custom content strategy for my website. The url of my website is: example.com
From there, Terkel will pitch a 90-day content strategy with some relevant articles and blog topics for your consideration.
After content strategy approval, Terkel will deliver a free blog article each month to be published on your website. This is a great way to keep your blog populated with fresh content, establish a publishing frequency, and build visibility online.
Next Steps: Get Free Blog Content
Terkel is the best way to get free blog content for your website.
All content is original and meets Terkel’s terms of service. Plus, with publishers having final editorial oversight of all content published on their website, looking to Terkel to support a content strategy is a step brands, member-driven organizations, and media sites should consider taking.
Still on the fence?
Consider signing up for Terkel as a panelist. Submit your insights, and see where you get published to learn more about the process. Or, review some of the content that has been published on Terkel’s “dashboard.”
From there, you can be the judge on whether to use Terkel to connect your brand to expert insights.
