The Fast Four” Blogging Tips”

 

 

It’ll come as a shock to exactly no one when we say that we love blogging… love, love, love it! Not only does writing up a blog get our creativity flowing, but the advantages of drawing in new customers and giving current customers a reason to stick around simply can’t be denied. 

While in the middle of writing a blog last week, we realized that it had been a while since we had given some quick, simple blog writing tips that everyone could use. There are tons of options out there – several of which you can find on last year’s blog series – and here are four of our favorites:

Casual Writing is Where It’s At

 

Read just a couple of our blogs, and you’ll quickly realize that we’re huge fans of casual writing. While we discuss ideas, processes, and best practices that can have serious impacts on your business, the tone itself doesn’t have to be serious and stilted. After all, we want you to enjoy reading our content – not have to gut through it! And even if you’re in a business that caters to professionals, lightening up a bit will go a long way to making the blog more accessible to the masses. Just be careful that you don’t get *too* casual for your industry – cursing, for example, might not be acceptable to your readers. 

Post Consistently

In this crazy world of ours, it’s easy to get distracted and let things slide. Perhaps you have too many weekly meetings and the last thing you have time for is to write up a new blog. Or maybe crafting a blog after-hours will cut into your Netflixing and/or chilling time. Well, if you’re going to write a blog that people can rely on, then you must learn to post on a consistent basis. If not, visitors to your site won’t be able to count on it as a reliable source – which means they might go elsewhere. If you don’t have time each week, the best thing to do is hand over the duties to a professional marketing company (like a certain someone we know).  

Make a List and Check It Twice

As you can tell from this blog and most others we’ve ever posted, we are huge fans of making lists. This technique is a great way for you to provide tips and tricks, of course, but also serves as the perfect technique for disseminating facts and information in an easy-to-read, uniform manner. The sub-headers should be (relatively) short and to-the-point so that readers can quickly find what they’re looking for right away. 

Proofread the Darn Thing

We’re the first to tell you that we’re not perfect when it comes to typos – and that’s okay. The human mind is funny – sometimes, when you know what something is *supposed* to say, your brain fills that in so that when you read it, everything looks right even when it’s not. That’s why duplicated words, like “the the” in the middle of a sentence, are often missed by readers. The solution here is to have a second person proofread every blog before it gets posted. Mistakes will still happen from time to time, but you’ll definitely see an improvement. 
Do you want to add a blog to your website but you just don’t know what to write about? Or do you simply not have the time to dedicate yourself to a consistent posting schedule? Give a shout out to the professionals at Madison Taylor Marketing, and we’ll get you started with blogs and so much more. 

 

Is 2021 the Year to Hire a Digital Agency?

When you’re first starting your company, marketing is a much simpler proposition — one you can probably handle yourself with a single in-house employee. As your business grows, your marketing needs will become more complex and you may not be able to keep up. Is it time for you to bring in outside help? Here are a few signs to look out for.

11 Important Tips for Making Better Landing Pages

Your website is the hub of all your marketing efforts. All of your emails, social posts, and search ads lead back to your website, and when they do, they need somewhere to land. You can build as many landing pages as you want — pages for sales, specific campaigns, particular channels, and even unique products — but the most important thing is to convert the visitors on those pages to paying customers. Here’s how to do that.
