Social media experts commonly agree the following tips will benefit those who want to write effective blogs.

Tip # 1 Integrate Social Sharing

Be sure to post the major social media icons at the bottom or top of your blogs. This insures the likelihood of readers sharing your blog on their social media sites.

Tip # 2 Always Produce Top Content

Remember to post content relevant to the audience’s needs right now. Another word of advice is to post content that never goes out of date. An example of this is to post a blog about “How to Grow the Largest Watermelons”. Something like this will never go out of date.

Tip # 3 Write Headlines that capture people’s attention

There are several ways to look at this. One way is to be sure to write headlines that are filled with rich key words. Another way is to create a headline that captures the interest of the reader. For example, “Twelve year old boy rides his horse to school, gets detention.” A headline like this will cause people to click on the blog so that they can read the whole story.

“The Pope Loves a Good Joke!”

 

Tip # 4 Use Proven Tactics and Frameworks

You don’t have to invent a brand new style of blogging. Learn the tried and true tactics like:

  • Spy versus spy
  • Breaking News
  • Guest Speaker
  • Top Lists
  • Celebrating Milestone
  • Appropriate Quotes from Esteemed Individuals

Tip # 5 Use High Quality Images

Using quality photos and videos lure people to your blog and help you position your product in the minds of your customer. A photo of a mountain can project an image of calm and peace.

Tip # 6 Quality is Better Then Length

A quality blog filled with educational or entertaining content will get much more attention than a long boring blog that provides no value.  A blog with educational or entertaining value is much more likely to be passed along.
