So where do we begin?
How To Make Your Blog Content Super User Friendly
1. Create a killer headline title and compelling opening paragraph
Make it so appealing that your visitors will want to read the rest of your post, or click on the link in their email inbox or RSS feed. Please check out the following article I wrote a while back about creating killer opening paragraphs for your blog. Also check out how to write better headline titles.
2. Break up your blog content!
Don’t just publish blocks of unreadable texts, your visitors will take one look, then click off faster than they probably arrived at your page. Break it up and make your content readable, scannable.
3. Don’t sound like a broken record
and what I mean by this is that if you say something once, make it clear, don’t repeat yourself over and over and over again. Once your visitors notice that your content is nothing more than just repeated trash written differently, they’ll stop reading your blog.
4. Get out of the box you’re sitting in!
Huh? What? I hear you say. What I mean by this is write content from your perspective, not from everybody else’s perspectives as found on Google. Think outside of the box and offer something completely different and unique. Your opinion is what counts; additionally back up your theories at the same time.
5. Use summaries, overviews, conclusions
Help bring small amounts of digestible information together so your visitors can scan important parts of your content quickly, or get an idea of what your content / post is about.
6. Make use of bullet points
…and quote boxes to highlight key points of your blog content.
A short but sweet post for the end of the week folks, I hope you can take something away from it. Have a great weekend what ever you’re up to.
