Blogging is THE way to add tons of quality content to your website. If you want to reach the top of the search engine results pages and find new customers, you must offer quality content that covers a wide array of topics pertinent to your business.
Maintaining a blog often falls to the wayside when entrepreneurs consider all facets of their site. But blog posts magically draw web surfers who search for the keywords featured in your posts.
Other website owners decide to write their own blog posts. While this can be effective in some cases, there are many reasons why you'd do better to hire professional blog writing services.
First and most obviously, a professional blogger has the time and inclination to keep your blog updated. That means your customers get fresh content on a regular basis and don't grow bored of your site. Posting new blog content regularly also helps you attract new fans.
But a deeper aspect of hiring a pro blogger is the fact that your blogger is trained in writing.
Surely you've met people who know a lot about a certain subject but have no public speaking skills. For such a person to give a lecture on their topic is painful. It's the same with writing. You may know everything there is to know about pest control, rosacea, or automatic transmissions. But unless your writing skills are top-notch, you may have a hard time developing your knowledge into a message that captivates your audience.
A professional blog writer is knowledgeable in your field and is also skilled in writing. A writer's communication skills have been finely honed to get messages across in the best way possible to specific consumers. And an experienced blogger knows the ins and outs of creating a winning blog post.
You've seen them: blog posts that are just a wall of text. There might be some valuable nuggets buried in such content, but many readers won't be inclined to find out.
Writing a blog post isn't the same as writing a book, journal article, newspaper article, or academic paper. The two key elements of a blog post seem obvious but are more nuanced than they seem on the surface.
It may strike you as odd to discuss format before content, but it goes to show you how blogging differs from other types of writing.
A blog post will almost always be read onscreen. That means you must include plenty of white space in your blog post. Although this sounds counterintuitive, white space eases reading fatigue and keeps your readers on the page longer.
Another aspect of putting together a high-quality blog post is adding headings and subheadings. This is an easy way to increase the white space in your post and add visual interest.
But headings serve other purposes too. They act as key areas where you can add SEO keywords to improve your post's ranking.
Headings also help your reader navigate to those sections that contain the content you want. After all, many people scan online content and don't read it the way they might read a printed publication. People reading online don't want to spend more time than they have to finding the information they need. So, headings are infinitely valuable, and the way they're worded even more important.
Next, the text itself needs to be appealing. That means choosing a simple font that looks good on many devices and maybe even in many languages.
Finally, images make a blog post sing. They also further break up text for easy consumption of content.
Needless to say, an effective blog post needs to be written well. And that means much more than stringing words together with punctuation in between.
There are too many elements of good writing to go into here. Entire degrees are designed to cover all the aspects of effective writing. But keep in mind that a well-crafted blog post should:
