To come up with a killer post for your blog, a lot of work is involved and it means more time and effort researching and compiling putting all the content together to make an attractive post. Let’s look at some of the hacks and what is involved.
Have A Point
Each and every blog post should a central point of focus, which makes up your point. What’s is it that you want to drive home. For example, your point might be to make your readers know various ways of investing their savings or to make my readers consider having a blog page for their business. The point should be central to your blog post and it can even help you come up with your keyphrase or keywords of your blog posts.
Your readers are not in need of vague information but are in need of something well researched, referenced and put together. The reader needs in-depth information about whatever you are writing about so don’t hurriedly write your blog posts but take enough time to research your topic.
Cite And Reference Sources
After researching you usually come up with a lot of information that you might need to use within your content, then it will be ethical to cite and reference your sources. The easiest way will be to use hyperlinks especially if they are online sources and if they are offline sources, you might choose to do in-text citation and then maybe compile a reference list at the end of your post.
Get Straight To The Point
Within your post, try to be short and concise especially with your sentences and language. Don’t meander but get straight to the point with your statements, remember that your readers usually don’t have enough time so try to get straight to the point such that they can get valuable information with the little time they are reading your blog.
Your writing should exhibit confidence and that you know what you are writing about. No one wants to read a post in which the writer seems unsure or is not confident about their topic. So from the start always choose a topic you are confident to write about for example if you are not confident to talk about sex, then why should you write about it?
Always verify your information and be authentic in whatever you are writing about. Get you facts and figures correct and for statistics always use the latest information and statistics, for example when you want to talk about the number of WhatsApp users in the world, then always try to get the latest information and statistics. Also, verify your information and sources that your post might be credible and authentic.
Mixture of Content
Try to mix different types of content within your posts that might include having audios, videos, infographics, pictures, etc. This also makes your post attractive and appeal to a variety of audience. You might need to embed videos from Youtube within your blog post for example. Mixing content also helps to bring your point home and makes your point valuable.
