If you like to explore these kind of challenging subjects (very popular but with an high quality required due to the hard competition), I suggest to visit:

  • 202 Challenging Subjects when Shooting for Stock by Rob “bobbigmac” Davies (picNiche’s author); <<The list is built from supply/demand metrics composited across a variety of associated search phrases and queries to picNiche>>
  • 101 B2B Marketing Clichés, an IAS b2b production, with a critic view of the cliché concept; <<Clichés are everywhere in B2B marketing. Every trade mag, most powerpoints, hundreds of websites are jammed with cringworthy specimens>>
