3. Use more White Space

If you use huge blocks of 10 long sentences per paragraph, people will rarely read through them. So, break your post into small paragraphs; even one-sentence paragraphs are acceptable. Try this:

  • Create subheads to partition your content and tell your story. Also, play around with text size, fonts and bullet points.
  • Highlight some of the important words to ensure that your message stands out to grab the readers’ attention.

4. Use Visuals

Visual content contributes to 90 percent of all information transmitted to the human brain and the brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text. Try using these:

  • Videos

Use different types of videos to enhance your business like how-to videos, customer testimonials, demonstrations or animated explainer videos.

  • Infographics

To appeal to the audience, incorporate the right shapes, colors and fonts to communicate important information.

  • Memes

Use of memes is an incredibly unique way to evoke your blog readers’ positive emotions and allows you to add in some in-jokes, and this is a fantastic way to excite your audience and create a lively community for your brand.

  1. Love this post! Just what I needed to read. It is really difficult to get lots of people to read your blog when there are sooooo many blogs out there to read. Could really do with some advice on my last post if you have the time!

  2. I think it was the most helpful post I’ve read from a long time. There are many bloggers whom are trying to write about this kind of subjects but from far, this is the most simple, understandable and eveyone can follow your advices …awesome. Congrats and thank you ! ?

  3. I’ve been having a read through some of your posts and they’re all really helpful. However, what would you suggest for a blog that is for the most part creative writing such as poetry and short stories?

  4. I’m trying my VERY best to get going on certain things including with my blog! I’ve been trying so hard to see if I can get more attention but it’s been very hard because I don’t know the secrets well enough to have a successful blog. I know some of them for sure but for some reason I’m still not getting it. If you guys want to though, check out my blog coming from the mind of someone with autism, including with my series ZEON!
