5 Tips For Writing An Awesome Blog Post

5 Tips For Writing An Awesome Blog Post

Content marketing is a great way to generate
more traffic to your website, but there’s a problem. It takes a long time to write a blog post. Hi, everyone, I’m Neil Patel. Today, I’m going to share with you how to
write amazing blog post fast. The first thing you need to do, and I know
this sounds counterintuitive, is take your time writing the first few blog posts. You’ll figure out your style, what you like
writing about, you’ll figure out what readers like, what they don’t like. Once you have that, you can start templatizing. When you start templatizing, the first thing
you need to do is figure out the structure of all your blog posts. You create a basic template, introduction,
body, conclusion. Now that you have your template, what you
want to do is fill them in every time you have a new blog post. For example, when I read a blog post, what
I do is I first write the introduction. I know that I always have in my template three
to seven headings for my body. I take the main ideas and I turn them into
headings. Then, I write my conclusion because every
one of my blog post has a conclusion. Then, I go back to the body and I fill in
each heading with content. It could be a few paragraphs, it could be
a few bullet points, it’s whatever I decide I want and that’s what I fill my template
with. The next step is images. You want to figure out a way to get images
fast. There’s a lot of free stock photography sites
out there. I love using Fotolia. I pay for images, but I can run a few quick
searches, find an image, and add it within my blog post with speed. Without images, your blog post won’t do as
well because a picture says a thousand words. No one just wants to read text. The next thing you need to do is create rules. Here are some rules that I use for my own
blog, and you can copy them if you want for your blog. I always use the words “you and I” within
my blog post. It makes it feel like it’s a conversation
between you and I. The next thing that I do is I always use paragraphs
that are short. My paragraphs typically are never longer than
six lines. I try to keep them around four or five lines. Sometimes I even have one line paragraphs. The next thing I do is always use six or seven
images, if not more, throughout my blog post. I also link out to sites that cite my research. Those are my main rules. You can create your own. If you follow those tips, you’ll be able to
templatize your blog writing process and it shouldn’t take you more than two hours to
write a blog post. If you’re spending more than two hours, there’s
something wrong. It could be, “Hey, I don’t know how to come
up with ideas.” If you don’t know how to come up with ideas,
I’ve talked about this in past videos, use BuzzSumo, type in keywords, it’ll show you
what’s hot and what’s not. If the issue is you have writer’s block, then
you know what? Go outside, go do something or some activities,
then come back and write. It could be that you’re distracted. If you’re distracted, go find a different
place to write your blog post. Follow all those tips and you’ll be able to
write amazing blog post fast.

  1. Thanks Neil. I have newly started writing blog posts for my website. So I have learnt a lot from this video.

  2. Neil can you review my blog and van you some statement,so I can display on my blog like what Neil says about my blog

  3. Sir
    Can I Use only one image of your site in my article I give the Reference of neilpatep .com

    Only one image plz give me permission sir

  4. Question for you, sir. How do you pick your images? I write blog on programming and feel weird putting a kitten or a coffee mug photo to illustrate a blog. Should I illustrate the client's problem, my solution or simply put kittens on the blog because everyone loves kitten?

    There are only so many generic handshake or business meeting pictures you can put on one's blog!

  5. Hi Neil, kindly reply to this one — You do suggest to use LSI keywords as well in the article and at the same time you suggest the longer the better ( word limit of an article ). I started to write an article and my title was How to ……!! Now, when I focused on LSI keywords 98% were starting from how to….and finally I realized when I was adding those in my article there where a lot of How to how to words which were repeating. What to do now?

  6. I blog for a manufacturer of specialty chemicals. It is hard to write blog posts about the products we make and much harder still to get people to read them.

  7. I'm stuck at very basic question…
    Q. I want to increase my Google Ranking and the question is what should I do out of this two options…
    A. Should I create my own domainname.com/blog and post there or
    B. I use Medium.com for blogging?

  8. Once again – so thankful – watched three of your videos so far and I'm really feeling more knowledgeable on how to be successful at blogging. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge! I am a subscriber now

  9. Awesome video. The best on this topic. Neil, do you have a video on to make really good infographics, what software do you use?

  10. Hii Neil,

    I have two years of experience of working with different publication houses. Now I want to switch to Content Marketing. Can I leverage my two years experience in the Content Marketing field? And do companies hire for the position of Content Marketer or its a part of Digital Marketing?

  11. Neil… I’ve been binge listening for 7 days. I am very interested in starting a blog for women related to leadership skills that will make their career more rewarding. I’ve used google analytics to try to identify how much interest is out there now, and I’m not finding much. What are your recommendations to move forward with creating great content in this space.

  12. Hi Neil, this is great advice. Although I'm an experienced blogger/writer, I always look for opportunities to improve my skills and talents even at the most basic level. Thanks for this!

  13. is it mandatory to end the content in a single blog post or can carry over to the next post with a new blog title

  14. Neil, going to start a site soon. It’s in a pretty large niche. I want to create motivational videos for my audience. Do you recommend doing this?

  15. Hi Neil. Do blogs that we write about our overall subject (mine is helping small business get digital leads that convert to customers) BUT never get into the top 100 on google help our overall cause for Google to understand what we do? For example, I have a blog I wrote on PPC advertising that is supposedly ranking number 3 in Australia but another on the same topic that is outside the top 100. Does that second one help or should I rewrite it?

  16. Neil, are you talking shorter post or do you get 2000 words out in 2 hours? Seems like an awful lot but I'm sure doable with practice.

  17. I am follow your all the tips my questions is i am writing too long posts, it's take a lot of time it's beneficial for the SEO?

  18. Thank you for your videos. Question – do you write your blogs within the platform? Or do you have a favorite software?

  19. In the past 48 hrs. I have purchased the domain, set up FB, Gmail, IG, and ordered a logo on fiverr 🙂 I have SO many ideas to write about! As for the theme, do you feel any of the WP Free themes are OK?

  20. 2 hours! I just spent a whole day writing a post (not posted yet) and it’s not finished nor is it edited…. lol … note to self .. stay shallow.

  21. I dont have good writing skills. But i want to make a blog. Should i read a lot of books for good writing? Or I purchase an article?

  22. Hey iam 18, and have a passion for writing, and someone told me to write for his blog. But how this content writing is done? On word? I don't know how to get started

  23. I have been writing content for different clients (mainly affiliate sites) and it's amazing that i have been using all the techniques you mentioned in this video. is this a coincidence? now i know that i learned to write and im capable, so i think i should start charging my client 15+ USD per 1000 words. thank you Neil.

  24. Hey Neil…the article was informative….but I have a question…I have written more than 20 articles on my website…the plagiarism checker shows that all of them are 100% unique ..
    Also they are each more than 1000 words…but when I am applying for adsense approval…I am not getting the approval..the adsense team says that my content is scraped content…can plzz guide me on how to write articles to counter this problem …

  25. Hi Neil. I like your channel and videos. I like your videos because they are short, relevant and to the point. I want your advice in a matter and I hope that you will guide me. I want to start my personal blog. I love writing. But I am not sure about one thing. Say I quote some statistics from an authentic source or any info from an authentic source. Obviously I have to cite the original source in my blog. But how to exactly do it? Should I ask for their permission or not? If I have to ask for permission how should I do that exactly? I have ambiguity about this. I am not 100% clear on that. Please guide me on this Neil.
    Waiting for your response.

  26. Thanks Mr. Neil Patel! Now, i can start writing with these amazing tips!

    Thank from Indonesia 🇮🇩

  27. But where do you get the images without having to create them yourself from scratch? And without copyright infringement? Adobe photostock seems to have it all, but they are quite expensive at about $3.30 per image. Most of us need hundreds, maybe even thousands of images. Is there a good free image site that doesn't just lead back to Adobe PhotoStock?

  28. Been struggling as a blogger for the past 7 years on and off. But these tips are really great! Thank you for that. I will try to incorporate these in my next blogpost as well!

  29. I find it hard to believe it only takes you 2 hours to write a post, especially the quality and length you're putting out. Almost all of your posts have data and facts in them that I know you have to check out. That alone would take you about an hour. Also, you have to go back and edit because unless you're some sort of writing genius, you'll have to make corrections. (By the way, I recommend that people who write content go back through and double-check your work, especially if you're writing something like a guest post. Because what you put out there on the Internet stays for a while and you don't want a lot of mistakes out there representing you.) By the way, I mean all this with the deepest respect to you and your accomplishments, but surely you are overlooking something here…please tell me you are. (It's driving me nuts trying to figure out how you and Carol Tice can write so fast.)
