Social Media Examiner: 26 Tips for Writing Great Blog Posts

One of the things that can zoom you straight into being a great blogger is to take a few minutes out of your week to read other people’s blogs. One of my favorite social media blogs out there on the world wide web is the Social Media Examiner. This is a great blog to visit on a regular basis for the latest tips on blogging, Facebook, Twitter, eNewsletters, videos, and more (I receive their daily email updates – you can too!). Recently, they had an article called 26 Tips for Writing Great Blog Posts – and I found it helpful, and I think you will too!

A great blogging tip of theirs, that immediately jumped out at me was the six parts of the anatomy of a lead-generating blog post. These are six “must haves” that you can incorporating on a regular basis as you blog:

  • Eye-catching title
  • In-text links to landing pages
  • Sidebar/banner calls to action
  • Social sharing buttons
  • Call to action at the bottom
  • Relevancy—making sure the post is relevant from top to bottom
