HOW TO WRITE A BLOG POST FROM START TO FINISH
Have you ever written a blog post? Are you a newbie when it comes to writing a blog? If you are new or you have been writing a blog post for a while, it doesn’t matter because you will be getting the perfect formula that has generated thousands of views and followers for my blog.
The formula I will be sharing with you works from B to C, B to B, Personal blog, corporate blog post and any other type of post you might be interested in writing today.
I will be explaining the formulas in different sections.
STRATEGY 1: START OFF WITH AN ENGAGING TITLE
Writing a blog post requires an enticing title or headline. It`s not advisable to start writing your blog post except you`re with an enticing title to attract readers. In a recent study by co-schedule, It shows that 8 out of 10 will read your headline, but only 2 out of 10 will click to read the rest of your article.
In a recent visit to a store, I discover tens of magazines in prints have fantastic headlines like;
“How To Lose Weight In 7 Days”, “Get a free ticket when you subscribe”, “How to satisfy your spouse”, “Cooking the right way” and many more. Seeing those headline will prompt a few to look at the magazines, but if you are a reader like me and the topic is a major concern personally or for business, I will definitely pick one up to read.
You can always pick up some magazine for inspiration or use the common generic ones like; “How to”, Fast ways to” and many more.
If you`re struggling to come up with your own headline or you have no tool to help you with an engaging headline, let me use this opportunity to introduce a fantastic free tool to help you cover your headline or title struggles.
This free tool helps score the headline according to common words used, an emotion passed in the word, power word used and how efficient you carrying out your headline. The tool gives a total score of 100% after your title submission. If your score is 60+% above, I believe that`s good enough for a start.
HOW TO USE
- Go to head analyzer co-schedule website
- Sign up
- Confirm your e-mail
- Write your title
- Click analyzer
- Wait for your score
- Optimize your title if you`re not happy with the score
STRATEGY 2: WRITE A PROPER INTRODUCTION
A second step that you need to follow is “The Introduction”. I know it`s just an introduction, but you need to hook people with a bold statement. If you go back to the beginning of this article, you realize I hooked to reading the post with the following; “Today, I will share with you my formula on how I write a perfect blog post that will generate thousands of views and followers for your blog every month.”
Writing your introduction shouldn`t be about engaging people alone, it should involve what is going to be covered in the post and why reading this post will help them.
Check out this introduction;
If you are a blogger or a marketer, the first line above will most likely engage you to continue reading.
STRATEGY 3: BODY OF THE ARTICLE
The introduction gives readers the confidence to continue with your blog post. Now that we are done with the introduction of the article, you need the body to be clear and easy to read.
When writing the body of a blog post, consider the following as the best practice to engage your readers.
SUB-HEADING (HOW TO WRITE A BLOG POST)
Keep in mind you want your content to be easy to read and skip at the same time. If readers can`t skip your blog post, the post won`t perform well. Bear in mind there are others who might have had the knowledge of what you are writing about and maybe reading your blog post to pick an interesting fact for their own post.
When people read your post, they want to be comfortable knowing they aren`t missing out on any information. It`s important to keep your blog post content spacious for an easy read.
Space your content 5 or 6 lines apart, so when people read, it`s easier for them to get all the information listed on your blog post.
STRATEGY 4: LINKING OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE
Writing a blog post is not all about you or the information you`re trying to pass to readers. While reading this article, you`d notice some words are underlined in blue right? Well, that`s me linking to other people`s website.
When you link to other people`s website, you name them as sources, citing them and giving one or two of their tips, it creates credibility, professionalism for you and your business.
Here is how to link and cite other websites for credibility and backlinks;
- Get a word or a phrase you want to link to an external site
- Highlight the word or phrase
- If you are on WordPress like me, the link option will appear
- Copy and paste the external link
- Chose to open in a new tab or not.
STRATEGY 5: CONCLUSION
A few blog post readers have a similar attitude towards how they read their post. When a few lands on your blog post page, some quickly skip to the conclusion part just to get a summary of the information, before going back up to read. So, when writing a post, it`s important to wrap it up with a conclusion. The conclusion summarizes what your blog post is about.
It`s also important to end your conclusion with a question. By ending with a question, more people are likely to leave a comment. Comment leads to engagement and engagement most likely leads to sales.
If people read your blog post on “How to write a blog post that generates thousands of traffic in 2020” and don`t engage with you, they are most likely not going to buy anything from you if you are an affiliate or an eCommerce store looking to sell some products or offer services to readers.
The 5 strategies above have helped many generate thousands of page views and followers on a monthly basis and I use this simple formula to grow both old and new websites.
BONUS STRATEGY (NOTIFY EXTERNAL LINK SITE)
