Every single post you write may not go viral, but there're actionable steps you can follow to ensure you give each of them a good chance of getting more views, followers, and earnings.

In this post, I will be sharing with you how to write a good post that gets read on any blog or publishing platform like read.cash and Publish0x.

 But first...

What is a "good post"

A "good post" is a subjective term because what's good to one person or in a particular situation may not necessarily be good to or in another.

So what does a "good post" mean?

To most writers, a good post is one that delivers the intended message accurately and produces the right results or provokes the desired reaction from the reader.

As such the purpose of the post and how well the writer is able to deliver the intended message and get the desired outcome is what makes a post good or bad.

After all, posts are written to communicate a message to an audience. If you get this message to them accurately and in an understandable format, your post is good.

Other general characteristics of a good post include:

  • it grabs attention and gets more readers which can translate to more followers and income.

  • it provides useful information to the readers.

In the rest of this post, I will be sharing with you how you can write a good post every single time and get results.

 

How to write good posts

Here are the simple things you need to write a good post.

  • Know your facts

  • Grab attention with your title

  • Hold attention

  • Use proper formatting

  • Finish with a sound conclusion and CTA

Let's discuss each of the above points in detail below.

1. Know your facts

The first step to writing a good post is to have sufficient information and facts on the message or topic you want to talk about.

If you have no first-hand experience or you have not done proper research on the topic, you cannot write a good post. Because you can't give what you don't have.

Every post is written to either inform, inspire, or entertain. You can't do this except you know what you're talking about.

Nonetheless, if you need (want) to write the post anyway, outsource it to someone with the knowledge or experience required.

Or better still, go do thorough research on the topic first to equip yourself with the facts.

2. Grab attention with your title

You may have all the answers and facts but your post would be useless if nobody reads it.

And the first step to getting people's attention to your post is to use click-worthy (clickbaity) titles.

A good post title is short and catchy and makes people want to click to read what the article is all about.

Look at this post title, for example, it promises to tell you how to write a good post. Most writers who want to write good posts will click to find out what strategies I have to share.

3. Hold readers' attention

You want to keep readers reading your post from the introduction, all the way to the conclusion.

To do that, first, your introduction must be enticing or interesting enough to get the reader interested in reading the article upon first contact.

Take my introduction in this post as an example...

Every single post you write may not go viral, but there're actionable steps you can follow to ensure you give each of them a good chance of getting more views, followers, and earnings.

Normally, the reader would want to know what "actionable steps" I talk about that will help them create better posts.

This makes them want to read the next paragraph. And that brings me to the next point in holding the readers' attention.

Make every paragraph count by offering or anchoring value in it.

Each paragraph should provide the reader with more insight, useful or interesting information or serve as a hook to the next piece of nugget you have to share.

This way, the reader will naturally keep reading as they're getting value for every second spent reading your post. Plus you're giving them good reasons to keep on reading all the way to the end.

The whole point is if you cannot justify why a word, sentence, or paragraph should be in your post, then, it shouldn't be there. Just delete it and keep only the relevant information.

4. Use proper formatting

Don't let your post be like the great wall of China, it'll instantly put your readers off.

Organize your post into meaningful and coherent paragraphs and divide it up with headings and subheadings to make it easy for your readers to consume.

Also, keep your spelling and grammar intact as too many grammatical and spelling errors will equally turn readers.

Proofread and edit your post for such errors and keep it neatly organized with proper headings and paragraphs like the one you're reading right now.

5. Finish with a sound conclusion and CTA

In all things, it's the great finishes that people remember the most. And that's why the conclusion of your post is very important.

Personally, I like to highlight the main points or message of the post in the conclusion and close it with a call-to-action (CTA).

If relevant to the topic, you can make it even more interesting by including your own opinion on the subject.

Finally, don't leave your readers wondering what to do next after reading your post. Tell them with a good CTA.

It could be something as simple as asking them to comment, like, share, follow you, read another of your post, or click your affiliate link.

Whatever it is, a good CTA is a perfect way of ending your post and getting the results you want.

 

Conclusion

Every writer wants to be read. But there're hundreds of millions of articles competing for readers' attention and read time every day.

The only way to get the spotlight on yours is to write good content. And in this post, we discussed how to do exactly that.

  • Make sure you have something useful and interesting to say. If you have nothing valuable to share don't write.

  • Grab and hold readers' attention with a catchy (clickbaity) post title and fill every paragraph of your post with value to keep them reading all the way.

  • Organize your post content into proper headings and avoid too many grammatical and spelling errors. Make your post as easy to read as possible.

  • Conclude it with a summary of the most important points discussed in the post and a clear CTA.

It's very important to write what you know. It's just the same as submitting a report to a teacher but you are not the one who made it. You can't affirm it when the interrogation comes.Thanks for the tips in writing.
