Would this draw your attention? – NO!

Avoid large chunks of text. Write in paragraphs.

MAKE IT SNAPPY

You have to accept that people scan web pages, rather than read them in detail.

If you want to cover a complex topic, try breaking it into several paragraphs or even a series of posts.

And why is this important?

Well, it is an excellent way to keep your readers interested and keep your content easier to digest.

SEO HEADLINES

Use simple headlines to get more readers.

Here are a few tips:

  • Use phrases like “… ways to”, “15 reasons why” and “step-by-step”
  • Include numbers in your headlines: 5, 10, 15, 7, and 12. Readers like the headlines with numbers
  • Target a keyword with high search volume

When the hardest part is behind you, comes the part where you have to do the proofreading. Correct the superficial errors in spelling, grammar, punctuation….

Use spellcheckers, Grammarly is a great way to correct typing mistakes.

And you are all set!
