I could spend hours talking about why your blog is so important, but for today, let’s just assume you know that and you are committed to making your website amazing with beautiful blog posts. We spend hours and hours each week writing blogs, creating images, sharing them with the world, driving traffic to them all in the hopes they will convert. But I want those efforts and valuable time to pay off for you. So today I am giving you my super special and amazing blog post formula!
Step 1 – Create the headline. Use Pinterest for keyword research and headline analyzer for writing better titles. Spend a few minutes with this and come up with at least 7 or 8 different titles and see which one does best.
Step 2 – Create the outline. Write out 3 to 5 short sentences that they need to know about this topic. This will turn into your headings on your post so make sure they are quick and eye-catching.
Step 3 – Write the intro. Your intro will be a bit part of your SEO and possible the only paragraph in your blog your readers read. So make it a good one that draws them further down the page wanting more. Also make sure to include the keyword you chose from Pinterest.
Step 4 – Fill in the content. Now you can finally start writing your blog. Answer each question as if you were talking to a friend or client. Let your natural voice come through. Write just as you speak. Another tip is to keep it quick. If you have more than 2 paragraphs for a heading, create a sub heading to break up the paragraphs a bit.
Step 5 – Add your call to actions. I use the same call to action on each blog so for this step all I need to do is go to the last blog and copy the call to action. Super easy.
Step 6 – Add your extra media. Think Pinterest image or an embedded video. Head to Canva and create a quick image to give your post some prettiness.
Step 7 – Add the SEO bits. Scan over your post. Add the category, tags, and feature image. Make sure to fill in all the Yoast SEO information and see how it scores.
Step 8 – Publish and share it to the world. Once you publish your post, you have to let the world know! Add it to your social media channels, pin it everywhere, add it to bookmarking sites, share it to the world. Check out this video on where to share your blog posts.
