Here are my best tips for writing an awesome blog hands down every time.
1. HEADLINE: Hip and happening
Where’s your headline at? One of the most important elements of the entire writing structure is the happy headline. You should have one on all online content.

2 LEAD SENTENCE: Make it a stand out
This is where your word styling really cuts a fine figure. Tell your audience what the content is about but do it in a way that stands out and leaves a lasting impression.
TIP: Try a tip, statistic, fast fact, testimonial or story.
3. BODY COPY: Your WOW words
Make everything about your content different to anything anyone else is doing. Get creative with your words. Writing for your readers should be your number one priority.
TIP: Make the tone conversational and build a connection.
4. SEO: Oh, yeah, that’s right
Make sure you complete all on-page SEO. Thread your keywords through the content . Also use them in your meta description, title and alt tags, and make the blog, online article or web page at least 300 words.
TIP: Use your keywords 3-5 times + include your internal and external links)
5. CALL TO ACTION: Make it clear and actionable
Last, but certainly by no means least, is your call to action. No great page should be without one. A call to action directs your readers and tells them what do to next.
TIP: Be different. Don’t just say “call us”. Think of some sassy and sophisticated words instead.
BONUS TIP: Smile when you write. A smile makes everything more enjoyable. Your words will thank you for it.
