2)    Inform – Blogs are not only a great place to tell your story, many readers use them for quick relevant information which leads on to our next point…

3)    Keep it quick – Blogs are not articles, they’re blogs. Many fail to keep them short and sweet losing readers before you can hit them with a call to action at the end

4)    Add value – Give your readers a reason – no one likes/follows or reads if they have no reason to, whether you’re informing your clients of news or services or giving them a great read with helpful tips, it’s vital they’re not left cold by pedestrian pros.

5)    Quality is key – Take the time to create quality content that resonates with your reader’s needs and interests. Make sure you’re not sending them to sleep with rushed content that doesn’t inform or add value.
