|July 29, 2012||Posted by Louise under Content Creation|
When you finally launch your very own blog, you’ll have to learn how to write a blog post fast. Because to keep visitors coming back to your site, you need to post relevant content and you need to do it frequently.
Think about it. Do you hang-around or return to a website that only displays products with sales pitch and nothing else? Unless it updates its products often, there’s no reason to return. At least not until you’re ready to buy something, if ever. And even then, with all of the distractions to pull you away, you may forget about where you saw the product in the first place.
The Benefits Of Blog Writing Frequently
Therefore, writing content often that interests your visitors will entice them to keep coming back to your website. Having visitors returning and hanging around could result for you and your site in some extra benefits like:
- better Google rankings,
- opportunity to get to know your visitors,
- exposing yourself (your expertise, I mean!),
- increased traffic,
- lots more social media sharing,
- lots of comments,
- more conversions like optins and sales,
- customer trust and loyalty,
and more, as one thing affects another and snowballs into a better and stronger online presence.
It’s Better To Work Fast
The problem is writing content for your blog can be difficult and very time consuming!
Now if you’re already rolling in the big bucks, you might hire others to do this for you. But if you’re like many of us who want to forgo the spending, you’ll do the writing yourself. So, you’ll need to learn how to write a blog post fast so that you can publish relevant and current content, frequently. Otherwise, you’ll either spend too much time writing and not enough on other parts of your business or overwhelmed, you’ll give up writing content entirely.
I found this infographic on writing quick posts for you blog in 8 steps and I thought it captured efficient blog writing, splendidly.
I do follow this process myself, but am still working on perfecting Step 3 & Step 4. Since, I’m still refining this blog and what I want to communicate to my readers, I never seem to plan more than a week ahead of schedule! I really should take more time to sit down and plan a lot further down to road.
And there’s Step 5. I actually do this, but a little differently. Instead of starting at the end, I write a temporary title, which resembles a tweet or an elevator speech of the main point I want to communicate in the post/article. Then once I am done writing the whole post, I shorten my temporary title and if possible include a keyword.
