    8 tips to writing
    Captivating blog posts


    For a good blog post the necessary things are good idea or topic, accurate spelling and grammar, and a strong mastery of the essay form. But for an awesome blog that will make the reader to share them you have to do some more things. Given below are 8 tips about how to make a awesome post.

    • Hook them with the first sentence
    The hardest part of writing the blog is the first sentence. It should reel the readers to check the blog and also give them an idea of the blog.
    You can very well start with.
    • Thought provoking question
    • quote
    • statistic
    • story

    • Make every word, phrase & sentence count
    Spam is very common in the internet so you have to work harder in order to hold your readers attention. And the attention should not be disturbed so you have to make every word and phrase to do something. Read your thoughts aloud. Edit the extraneous bits. Clarify the thoughts and strengthen your arguments.

    • Shorten your sentence, if possible
    You should have a rough guide how to shorten a kilometric sentence. If you have a long sentence you should try to shorten the sentence. But if you can’t able to shorten the sentence then the kilometric sentence is always good.

    • Use simple, yet precise, words
    Readers hate it when you barrage them with pompous jargon. Not only these words disturb the reading experience but makes your blog look stilted. Try to use sensible words which can be understood by a common man. But the words that you enter must be so precise to the idea of the blog.

    • Play with analogies
    Dating and blogging are almost similar. You can't show great impression on the first date and leave it, you have to show again and again on your following dates and ensure that you do not waste the reader's time. This should be done with blog you have to post awesome blogs so that you get a person's time and commitment.

    • Throw in a few pop culture references
    Flavour can be added to the blog post by pop culture. That will tell the reader that you are relatable and likeable. You should be mindful of your audience. You should not write your content to a particular person in the world which is not a very good idea.

    • Make your post unique
    Making a 100% original post is easy. But your idea could be written by others. You should try to find a new angle. Most of the writers will write about the benefits of a job. You could try the disadvantages for you if you didn't take up the job.

    • End with a punchy conclusion
    Once you have written a enticing heading with an fitting body, now it's time to give a appropriate conclusion for your content. The easiest way is to summarize the points in the conclusion. But this what all the bloggers try to do and it stop boring. Instead you can end up with thought provoking question or a call to action.

    To write a successful and captivating blog post, first you have to understand blog reader’s expectations. More and more people are latest updates junkies with short attention extent. So Keep your stuff to the short and sweet, not like a novel and stick to talking point and reinforce this point creatively.

    Audience should be first priority because they will be the reader of the content you posted on your website and you need to act wise because if your customers won't like your content you will have no success with your business. It is always a good idea to write an effective articles that is full of information and audience engaging capability.

    I too agree that catchy title, punchy conclusion and unique content are the best strategies of content marketing. Along side, you need to put sweet and short sub headings or the audience curiosity raising lines, to keep on engage with your writing. Adding meaningful images (customized) can greatly attract the people.
