How To Write the Perfect Blog

Oh my God, the pressure! Write the Perfect blog! Getting started with your blog article might be the toughest part. Incorporate the following components for success. Success is defined not only by the number of opens but also the shares. Master your craft by understanding the role of each section creating the attention-grabbing headline, opening statement, the hero image, a couple strategic sub-headers, emotion-evoking content, the How-to section and strategically placed call-to-action items.

  1. The Headline. The goal of the headline is to grab your reader’s attention. You have about 3 seconds. Here’s where you include the most highly searched keyword phrase.
  2. The Opening Statement. Key insight. Direct marketers have long known that if you get people to read your first 3-4 sentences, they are more likely to read your entire article. The point of your Opening statement is to get people to read your opening. Take Action Save the image to the left for future reference.
  3. Half-width Image. Images add interest. They help tell your story. 5 powerful reasons to add images to your blog. Search engines are looking for images. They index them. It’s another way to raise your ranking online. Does the filename of your image matter? Yes! Please name it using the best keyword phrase that you did hard work researching. Images are known to provoke more social media shares. That’s free advertising! Take Action: See what others images look like and change the colors to fit your brand, change the text to fit your title and your most import keyword phrase.
  4. SubHead. This sub-head has one main goal. To entice your people to read your first piece of content. That’s it! How? Make a promise to your readers… give them a benefit.
  5. Content. Connect Emotionally. Your first piece of content should aim to trigger an emotion in your reader. When people get emotional, they tend to pay attention. They are more likely to take action after being put into an emotional state.
  6. First CTA #1 – call-to-action. Use a ‘click to tweet’ quote right here. Why? Who do people quote? People quote authorities. Enticing people to quote you, positions you as an authority. Plus, people like tweeting quotes and you’ll get more traffic from social media as a result.

A Content Marketing strategy is about 25% of a successful marketing plan. You need to drive traffic to your engaging content. Learn more about our program to your success in Best Way to Spend $1000 Marketing Your Business.

How To Format the Perfect Blog

Many bloggers go to work writing, writing, writing. However, they fail to remember to make the content visually appealing and easy to scan. We need to include a basic format to make the content easy to read. Image to the Left. Look familiar? Would you want to read on?

Let’s get started.

  1. First, Create an SEO Friendly headline. And refer to the On-Page SEO Checklist for more details.
  2. Have only one Header 1 title. Use your best keyword phrase as the Main Title.
  3. Have 5-6 Header 2 subtitles.
  4. Write 2-3 sentences per paragraph. Use appropriate subtitles to provide an overview of the content.
  5. Create a Call-to-Action in the middle and near the end of the post. Make them count. Get email signup for your newsletter so you can nurture them into a client. Provide a ebook download to offer value.
  6. Insert at least 1 hero image or video
  7. Create Alt tags for images using your best searched keywords and the name of the company for whom you are writing. Assuming your research for the best keyword phrase, use the same keyword phrase you use in the title of this article. for example, ‘How To Format The Perfect Blog by Carol Scalzo of Hit-the-Web Marketing’. This is why your images need to be relevant to your content. Also, if the image is turned off, the description here will tell the visitor the meaning of the image. If the person is blind, the computer will use the Alt tag to read the description out loud.
  8. Create at least 2 internal links to complimentary pages or pages you want to boost ranking for in search engines.
  9. Create an external link to a high authority website. One that is very popular AND well regarded. (no hacker or porn sites)
  10. Make sure hyperlinks and images Open in A New Tab.
  11. Have social media buttons so visitors can share to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn.
