Create the Perfect Blog Post and Open Your Eyes to the Untapped Potential of Blogging

Every now and then, we read a blog post that’s so good, not only do we read it, but we click it, share it, and recommend it to our friends.

Effective blog posts need to be cleverly written to attract the attention of busy readers, here are four steps you should follow to write an effective blog post.

1. Use a comprehensive content management system.

The first step to creating witty blog posts is to use the best content management system (CMS) available. Using a CMS gives you full flexibility and makes your work easier.

There are several options depending on your needs, including WordPress, Wix, Squarspace and Joomla!

With a comprehensive content management system you can you can create, optimize, and personalize your own blog posts without needing any technical or graphic design experience.

  1. Include personalization elements and excellent imagery.

When including links from affiliate programs your content need to be personalized to your reader’s interest or you will never make a sale, and your post must be complemented with interesting graphics.

Nobody wants to read a blog post that simply provides a blob of text. Adding photos, or better, Photoshop manipulations, helps your readers to quickly understand what your blog post is all about.

  1. Add an appropriate call-to-action.

Once you’ve included personalization elements and added your copy and images, it’s time to add a call-to-action.

Exceptional blog posts must contain a meaningful CTA. After all, if you are taking up your subscribers’ time, every post must have a point to it. WordPress users are presented with a wealth of content each day — why should they care about yours?

  1. Make sure it’s designed for all devices.

Effective blog posts are designed for all devices and will load quickly on desktop, tablet, and mobile.

Blog posts that are designed for mobile devices are especially important — a quality known as “responsive design.” In fact, 74% of companies today prioritize mobile device optimization when creating websites.

You probably receive enough content as it is, and it’s tough to know which bloggers are worth subscribing to, so I’ve curated a list of some of my favorite examples.

  1. Great stuff Debby, thanks for the insight! As someone who aims to publish a novel at some point in my life, I never even thought about how difficult the marketing side would be. Definitely something to bear in mind!

  3. Thank you, Debby, for linking to my blog post, Self-marketing a Self-Published Novel. It’s a tough world out there with so many book choices for readers. My novel is doing quite well, second place, in the AllAuthor.com book cover of the month contest, but book covers alone don’t sell books. I’m still looking for the marketing magic 😊
    Thank you again!

  4. Congratulations with your Self-Published Novel! Have you ever thought about creating an SEO optimized website for the sole purpose of selling your book? Setting up a Facebook and Instagram page to publish your own quotes and marketing material also goes a long way (check out https://www.facebook.com/paulocoelho , Paulo Coelho has a lot of subscribers, but he should publish more quotes as these reach a wider audience). Getting people to write and post reviews and sharing those on Goodreads are all good strategies that form part of your magical marketing recipe πŸ˜‰

  5. Reviews are hard to get, but I encourage my readers to leave one if they can.
    I mentioned starting a website for selling my novel in a post of yours from earlier in the week. WordPress recommends Blue Host, so I may try that. I have a Facebook author page but it isn’t focused on publishing quotes. Do you mean quotes from my novel?

  6. Yes quotes from your novels are perfect, any quote you come up with is fine as long as it’s original. Go to Google or any other search engine to download a background and use a program like Photoscape to easily paste the quote on top of your image. You will quickly generate a steady stream of followers this way as original content quickly becomes viral, you solely have to insist for a few months in order to gain traction.
    Make sure not to publish more than 1 to 2 posts daily, somehow Facebook will reduce exposure if you publish more often, I guess this has to do with the mindset that quality and quantity do not go hand in hand. Reviews are not as hard to get as you might think, you can find excellent writers on sites such as Reddit and Quora. High quality reviews from professional writers are created to stimulate curiosity and provoke interaction, both properties that will soon proof beneficial for your sales.
    Also, if you are going to setup a site solely for the purpose of promoting your blog make sure to SEO optimize it for the search engines, structure is everything and without organic search traffic you will have a very hard time generating sales. Hope this helps πŸ˜‰
