Recognize Your Audience.

One of the keys to writing great blogs is to understand and speak to your target audience. Have a clear idea of who your customers are and make sure to identify their interests before coming up with a blog topic. Make the topic relevant, helpful and useful for both your audience and your business.

Pick an Attractive Title.

Create a title that is eye-catching and grabs the attention of the reader. There is so much out there for people to read nowadays, so a blog title must really draw in the attention of the reader. At the same time, keep the title clear and relevant to your topic. Keep the title short to the point.

Organize a Posting Agenda.

Be as organized as possible and plan ahead when it comes to writing and posting.  A blog agenda will help you consolidate and establish topics so you’re not repetitive. Organize a posting schedule in a planner and or calendar. Plan your blogs a month in advance if you are posting them weekly.

Write Regularly.

Practise your writing and write as often as you can. Write daily if possible and build from there. Organize an outline and do your research. Fill in the blanks from there and don’t stress over the length of your blog, just make sure the quality is there.

Take the Time to Proofread.

Take the time to reread your work. If you can, get someone to proofread everything. The editing process is an essential part of writing a blog and should never be skipped. Make sure your blog is visually appealing, add any relevant tags and try to include a featured image.
