Hi everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m going to share with you, how to write perfect blog posts from start to finish. Now before we get started, I just wanna ask you guys to subscribe to this channel. That way we’re in at least more marking tips like this, and you’ll get notified. Now, I have a question for you:
How many of you have written a blog post before? If you have, leave a comment with “yes”.If you haven’t, leave a comment with “no”.Because you know what, whether you have written perfect blog posts before or you haven’t, and I’m still curious about how many of you write one, I’m gonna share with you the perfect formula that I follow for my own blog.
How to Write a Good Headline.
When writing a headline, aim to make it catchy and memorable. Use the right keywords and phrases to attract the reader’s attention. Try to write a headline that is two words or less. Keep it concise and to the point.
1. Start with a definition of “professionalism.”
Professionalism is the adherence to high ethical standards in one’s profession or occupation. It is the application of sound judgment and good judgment in the pursuit of a professional goal. Professionalism is the essential quality of a person who practices a profession or occupation. It is the fundamental Element of a profession. The three essential qualities of professionalism are: 1) Honesty
3) Respect for the client, employer, or civic body.
It works for a B2C, B2B, a personal blog, or a corporate blog, it works for everything. I kid you not, it is the best formula out there. First tip: Start off with a title. Don’t just start writing a blog post, unless you have the exact title, do not write your blog post. Eight out of ten people will read your headline, but only two out of ten will click through or read the rest of your article.
Doesn’t matter how amazing of a blog post you write, if you write a good headline, no one’s going to read the rest of your post. It all comes down to your headline or title, or whatever you wanna call it. If you need some creativity, go to a grocery store and check out a magazine. When you go to a grocery store when you’re checking out, you see all these magazines!
5 Bold Statements to Hook Your Reader
1. “From the first page, I was hooked.”
2. “This novel had me riveted until the last page.”
3. “I could not put this book down.”
4. “This is one of the best books I’ve ever read.”
5. “This book will keep you reading until the very end.”
They have amazing titles with How To, Livspace, articles like “Lose weight in 30 days”, and “How to shed five pounds fast!” Doesn’t matter what kind of magazine they are, whether it’s a business magazine or whether it’s a fitness magazine or a gossip magazine, they all use catchy titles. And that’s what you need to do with your blog post.
And look for magazines for inspiration. I stick with the basics. I use How To a lot, I use Livspace posts, those two things have worked wonders for me, and they haven’t gotten old. So start with the title. And you don’t have to just create one variation of it.
You can create two or three variations, and that’s what I do and I ask people hey, what do you like, I’ll ask a few friends, then I pick the best one and that’s what I go with. The second step that you need to follow when it comes to writing a blog post is the introduction. In your introduction, you need to hook people with a bold statement.
How to Write a Professional Headline for a Blog Post.
For example, I know this is a video, but I hooked you by saying “Hey do you want the formula that breaks down how I get at least 37,000 visitors per blog post”.By hooking people in, they’re gonna read the rest. And with your introduction, it’s not just talking, hooking people in. It’s also about talking about what’s gonna be covered in the post.
Just giving them a quick overview of what you’re gonna teach them, is a great way to hook them in, as well, as to get them to go more into your blog post, read more, and ideally, even leave a comment at the end of your post. Now that we got the introduction done, let’s get into your body. Your body should include subheadings.
Keep in mind, that you want your content easy to skim. If people can’t skim it, you’re not gonna do well. In your body, use subheadings, and keep your paragraphs around five to six lines max. In addition to that, when you’re writing your content in your body, you’ll notice that at least on neilpatel.com, I link out to other people.
How to Write a Compelling Conclusion for Your Blog Post
That’s part of my formula, it’s not just about linking to your own site, it’s about linking to other sites. Because what happens is when you link to other websites, you open up your sources, and you’re citing them, it creates more credibility for you, makes you and your business look more like an expert, and that’s what you wanna be perceived at when you’re writing content.
Last but not least, you wanna wrap up your post with a conclusion. The conclusion summarizes what your post was about, and you end your conclusion with a question. By ending with the question, more people are more likely to leave a comment. When they leave a comment, it creates engagement. By getting engagement, you’re much more likely to generate sales.
If people read your blog but they don’t engage with you, they’re not likely to become a lead or buy your products, or your services. So it’s really important you end with a question. And here’s what we found with conclusions.
How to Write a Good Conclusion for Your Blog Posts
Brazing Crazy Egg, we use a scroll mat feature, and what we found through testing was, that a lot of people read blog posts, when they first land on them, they quickly scroll to the bottom, check out the conclusion, and then they go back up and read the rest, assuming they like the conclusion.
So with your conclusion, make sure you label it “Conclusion”.Don’t get fancy, keep it simple. Just call it a good ole’ conclusion. And that’s my formula for writing blog posts! It’s not that hard. Now one thing I did mention within this whole process of writing blog posts, is that you need to link up to other sites. And here’s a bonus tip:
I know this goes a bit above just writing, but very few people do it. When you link up to other people, it flatters them. People love getting backlinks because when you link out to someone, it drives more traffic. Especially when you’re linking to them in a positive way. Hopefully, you’re not bashing people in your blog post. Stay above that.
How to Get More Traffic to Your Blog
So when you link up to them, shoot them an e-mail.”Hey Curtis, I have to say I am a huge fan of your work, so much so I linked out to you in my latest blog post.You can check it out here. Cheers, Neil.P.S.If you shared it, it would make my day”.
That’s it. A lot of people who get linked out, including me, don’t mind sharing many perfect blog posts or articles on Twitter. It drives the blog owner traffic, and it makes the person you link to look great! So that’s it. If you want more traffic to your blog, you need help with writing content or generating traffic, check out my ad agency Neil Patel Digital and of course.
