1) Create Catchy Headlines

Headlines are the first thing the reader will be looking for. Make sure your headline is attention-grabbing with relevant keywords that explain what your blog is about. You’re trying to tell the reader “what you’re searching for is in this content copy here”. 

2) Grab Attention with a Hook

The hook is what tells the reader they should continue reading if they like what you’re telling them so far. In digital marketing, it’s crucial to have a hook that pulls in your target audience with your main keywords. 

3) Understand Your Topic

You’ll want to have a clear understanding of your topic before you sit down to write. Gather all of the information you’ll need to elaborate on and do some extra research on things you need to be refreshed on. The more you know about what you’re writing, the easier it will be to write.

4) Know Your Main Focus

Create bullet points of what you’ll be discussing in your piece of content. Make sure that each point has something to do with your targeted keyword and topic. Great content is consistent with the main point you’re trying to make. 

5) Use a Consistent Tone of Voice

The tone of voice you choose to write in can come across as more casual or formal. Whatever your topic is, stick with a consistent tone of voice throughout your content pieces. You don’t want to be flipping between different writing styles in one blog post.

6) Optimize for Search Engines

You can optimize your content for search engines to find your web pages by adding keyword-rich content. Do your research on competitors of your topic and see what keywords they’re using to rank higher on Google. Also, be sure to use at least a couple of outbound links throughout your content. 

7) Proofread Your Work

Finally, don’t submit your work without thoroughly reading it through for any errors. If you work with a team of content creators, show them your work for feedback and see how you can collaborate to improve. 

Pro Tip: Share your work on various social media platforms to boost audience engagement!
