Don’t know where to start?
We can provide you with an outline of the article from our content plan.
Write headlines in a capital case and follow headlines best practices.
Be casual, but smart
This isn’t a term paper, so there’s no need to be stuffy. Drop some knowledge while casually engaging your readers with conversational language.
Use research data, numbers, stats, and detailed workflow stages to increase the value of the content. Put links to credible sources like Wikipedia, Statista, Gartner.com, etc. when you need to back up some of your statements with relevant facts.
Get to the point
Get to the important stuff right away, and don’t bury the kicker. Blog posts should be scannable and easy to digest. Break up your paragraphs into short chunks, and use subheads. Our users are busy, and we should always keep that in mind.
Link to another website if it helps to explain something or refers to the data source (eg. Gartner, Statista)
Use tags and keywords
In WordPress, add keywords that apply to your article. Look through existing posts for common tags. If you’re not sure if a word should be a tag, it probably shouldn’t.
Include images in your blog posts to provide additional info or just add visual touch to text. Make sure to use alt text.
Add call to action
Place a Call to Action (CTA) at the end of an article to encourage users to contact your company/agency/firm/store if they’re looking for help regarding the problem discussed in the article.
Keep in mind:
- Diagrams, schemes, illustrations should be created by our designer.
- Make sure images you use are royalty-free (use services like Unsplash, Pexels, Pixabay)
- All the images should go with alt text and caption.
- An image should be at least 1000px wide.
- Gifs are allowed but should be used rarely.
Embedded videos are welcomed to add more value where necessary.
Keep in mind:
- Check if we don’t have our own video on the topic.
- If not, use videos only from authoritative companies or figures (Hubspot, Salesforce, Gartner, McKinsey, Atlassian, Neil Patel, The Verge, etc)
- Embed videos from Vimeo and YouTube only.
- Don’t use industry-focused and tech videos older than 2 years (as an exception – speeches of Steve Jobs, etc.)
- Make sure the video corresponds to the text.
- Make a video logical part of the text, guide readers to it.
- Describe what’s in the video.
