How To Write Short Posts That Make a BIG Impact!

Not everyone enjoys reading essay length blog posts; sometimes writing less can make a bigger impact than let’s say writing a 2,000 word blog post. Sometimes I can sit and read a blog post that’s so long and by the end of it still don’t know what I’ve just read, what about you, has that ever happened to you?

How To Write Short Posts

Anyways, if you want to write short posts and want to make a BIG impact with just a few words, here are a few tips to make your post stand out.

  • Create a compelling headline title that begs to be clicked on!
  • Start off with an interesting photo or short video (optional of course)
  • Boom! Go straight in with the main points of your topic in the first few paragraphs and forget the long winded intro.
  • Ask an all important question for your readers to think about and answer in the comment section. (engagement)
  • Make your readers think! Get controversial without offending of course.
  • Create buzz by posting a question on social media sites, Facebook group pages and blog community sites and linking it back to your post.

…And you will make a bigger impact with just a few words…

So what do you think? Do you have anymore suggestions to add? Leave them in the comment section below as always, and yes I know this post is short and sweet :)

    Hey Fabrizio, I totally agree with you. Now a days no one has time for reading a full length article. Everyone wants it to be short but it should be effective.

    Good advice on the quality vs quantity angle. High numbers of low quality posts can lose you visitors as they don’t want their time wasted by having to look them!
    The high impact section makes a good checklist to see if any new post you are writing is up to scratch.

    I totally agree with you Its all about the quality and not the quantity. Those “Low impact posts” are really scattered all over the web. You need to provide visitors with valuable stuff.
    BTW I am a big fan of ZenHabits. Your blog is very useful. Keep that up.

    Hi Fabrizio,
    Great post buddy. I prefer writing 300 word blog post to 1000 word blog post. Is it acceptable? On the other hand I agree that the content matters most.

    Oh. Nice article. Only vibing real talk in ways of system right now. The length is sometimes catchy as short but mainly no more 150 words for that. Doing more living and passion work in the field of healing sessions in Peru. Nice vibe here. Namaste
