Tips For Writing An Awesome Blog Post
Content marketing is a great way to generate more traffic to your website, but there’s a problem. It takes a long time to write a blog post.
Today, I’m going to share with you how to write an amazing blog post fast.
The first thing you need to do, and I know this sounds counterintuitive, take your time writing the first few blog posts. You’ll figure out your style, what you like writing about, you’ll figure out what readers like, what they don’t like.
Once you have that, you can start templatizing. When you start templatizing, the first thing you need to do is figure out the structure of all your blog posts. You create a basic template, introduction, body, conclusion. Now that you have your template, what you want to do is fill them in every time you have a new blog post.
For example, when I read a blog post, what I do is I first write the introduction. I know that I always have in my template three to seven headings for my body. I take the main ideas and I turn them into headings. Then, I write my conclusion because every one of my blog posts has a conclusion.
Then, I go back to the body and I fill in each heading with content. It could be a few paragraphs, it could be a few bullet points, it’s whatever I decide I want and that’s what I fill my template with.
The next step is images. You want to figure out a way to get images fast. There’s a lot of free stock photography sites out there. I love using Fotolia. I pay for images, but I can run a few quick searches, find an image, and add it within my blog post with speed.
Without images, your blog post won’t do as well because a picture says a thousand words.No one just wants to read the text.
The next thing you need to do is create rules. Here are some rules that I use for my own blog, and you can copy them if you want for your blog. I always use the words & quote you and I quote; within my blog post.
It makes it feel like it’s a conversation between you and I.The next thing that I do is I always use paragraphs that are short.
My paragraphs typically are never longer than six lines. I try to keep them around four or five lines. Sometimes I even have one line paragraphs.
The next thing I do is always use six or seven images, if not more, throughout my blog post. I also link out to sites that cite my research.
Those are my main rules. You can create your own. If you follow these tips, you’ll be able to templatize your blog writing process and it shouldn’t take you more than two hours to write a blog post.
If you’re spending more than two hours, there’s something wrong.
