How to Write Epic Content Every Time?

Who else wants create epic content all the time?

Blogosphere is fully crowded, agree? There are only two ways to grab other people attention to read your blog.

One: Have great connections (this is almost impossible if you’re just starting out)

Two: Have epic content on your blog (this is POSSIBLE using *few dirty little secrets*)

What are those dirty little secrets to create epic content?

Interested in reading further?

Let’s jump into the details then..

Create evergreen headlines:

It all starts with great headlines. No matter how epic your content is – your headlines should grab your readers attention. The famous copyblogger Brian Clark says – 8 out of 10 people will decide whether or not to read your blog posts by looking at the headlines; if they aren’t compelling your readers will find a way to exit.

So always make sure you’re spending quality time on writing great headlines. Most of the time, online readers prefer reading the headlines which start either with How to’s (have a look at this blog post’s headline) or list posts.

Examples are:

  • 5 Ways to Dramatically Boost Your Online Reputation
  • 10 Tips to Make Your Blog Posts Going Viral
  • 3 Little Know Factors that Could Affect Your SERP Rankings

And the list goes on..

Likewise you can tweak the above headlines with How to’s

  • How to Dramatically Boost Your Online Reputation?
  • How to Make Your Content Go Viral?
  • How these 3 Factors Could Affect Your SERP Rankings etc

You WILL grab their attention with the list & How to posts.

Break long blocks of content into small

In general, online readers SKIP the contents. There’s no exception for this. You write great contents – and they’ll skim!

Then how can you convey the meat of your content?

Simple.. break your content into small paragraphs. Make sure you don’t have LONG and boring paragraphs – they’ll surely kill the readability of your content. Divide the content into parts when it reaches 4 to 5 lines. This way you’ll providing more chances for your readers to digest your content.

Format like a pro

You can’t make your blog posts epic – when they’re badly formatted. You MUST format the right way to grab others attention. Here are few simple ways to format like a pro.

Use lots of bullets and subheads: Once skim through this article, you’ll find lots of bullet points, sub heads and/or italic, bold letters. Why?

You can make anyone (yea, anyone) to read your content if it’s crafted the RIGHT way.

Use appealing images: Do I need to stress this point?

Okay.. let me explain why images are so important in creating epic content. Online readers will find it bit hard when they see ONLY textual contents on your blog posts, they always look out for something that is fresh, unique and appealing. When they find something REALLY cool, they’ll get excited to read your contents to know what’s in it. The best way to make them feel fresh is: add appealing images.

Say no to heavy interlinking: Heavy interlinking may ruin your content and they may distract your readers from reading your actual content. Always make sure you’re not only linking to relevant posts (be it your old posts or external posts), but also use common sense not to add too many links in a post. Don’t make your readers hard to read your content, when they find it hard – they’ll immediately find the way to exit.

Write for the readers – optimize for the search engines

No, I don’t say that you shouldn’t at all care about the search engines. After all, they’re the ones which send long lasting traffic to your blog, agree?

But don’t give SO much importance to optimizing your blog posts solely for search engines – especially by keyword stuffing.

SEO is not keyword stuffing and keyword stuffing is not SEO – remember that!

Try to use “long tail keywords” to get the best search results and get quality links to your posts to weigh more for your desired keywords in the search engines. This way you can always create epic content – because you’re not only writing for the readers, but you also worrying about Google.

Grab your audience attention with your introduction

Most bloggers (especially the new bloggers) don’t worry about how they’re starting their introduction lines, they simply fill the articles with full of S#!T.

How can one draw others attention then?

Spend some time to write great introduction lines – if they grab others attention, they’ll definitely read the rest of your copy.

Must include a CTA

CTA – Call To Action

Most bloggers don’t use CTA at all! You must include a CTA at the end of your posts to let your readers take some action on your posts.

You can ask them to comment, subscribe or buy your products at the end of each posts. If you’re offering them the value – they’ll surely listen to your CTA.

Promote, promote, promote

This is a no brainer. You must be promoting your blog posts to make them go viral, right?

But make sure you’re targeting the right people at right times. Let me clear this point..

There are certain times you’ll get more visibility on the social media sites like Facebook and twitter. You can’t make your epic content go viral if you promote them in the wrong times. So promote the RIGHT way to reap the best results.

Over to you:

Did I miss any point? I’d glad to listen to you if you’ve any more tips to write epic content

  2. Hey Saad, great post as always bro, sooo glad to see ‘call to action’ in your list, many bloggers fail to do this essential step, and some don’t believe it should be there at all. I’ve spoken to some bloggers who believe that you shouldn’t have to ask, if someone wants to take action after reading a post it’s up to them. I know it’s each to their own, but I love adding a CTA at the end of my posts, for me it’s certainly good way to keep the communication going between you and your readers readers. Keep up the great work as always mate 🙂

    1. Hey Nishant , this is one of the reason why bloggers fail so bad, they write good content but either that content is seasonal or stays hot for a day or two and gets cold and they stop writing after a while.

      Word of advice : choose your keywords wisely and look at what other bloggers are focusing on.

  4. Hi Saad,
    Really great tutorial on creating epic content. I agree that a reader decides after first look at the headline of post whether to read or not. After that creating an interesting introduction force readers to read all the post. To maintain their interest our post should not have long boring paragraphs.

    Thanks for these epic tips 🙂

  15. Hey saad,
    Don’t mind but the same thing I was thinking of writing on my blog. There are awesome points. I like two points the most :
    1. Evergreen Headlines : some people think headlines is not the main thing but I always first prefer to read headlines then take the judgement of reading the whole post !!!
    2. Format Like pro : Use subheading and bullets where ever possible but that also in limit. I always use formatting and quotes on my blogs to attract bloggers.
    By the way great post 😀

  22. Content, refine, post, link…. over and over again and once you rank for enough keyword combinations, look at your advertising stream and refine that.

    I think that it’s important to consider content as being king on the web and by content I mean original, fresh (to the web) posts that have never been read before. Breaking them down with sub-headers to each paragraph, making it easier for your readers. One post I recently read also pointed to creating “containers” that consist of similar posts around one top level url, all interlinking. This is a great way of driving an entire section of a website up in the rankings but again, it needs original content and plenty of links to it.

    1. Thanks Richard for adding a quality comments here, your tips are pretty worth a read. I totally agree that writing uniques ideas are amazing to grow fast but that problem is the ideas are stolen and people put them in other words to make it look orignal to search engines but are actually stolen.

      if content is king then backlinks are like soul of your blog , you need them in order to rank and get traffic from them.

  24. Hi Saad,

    What a great article you’ve written for us here! It’s easy to say that all of us can write epic content every time, but it sure is hard to pull off. I agree, one of the most important factors to consider when your aim is to grab people’s attention is a very interesting headline. It’s actually one of the most basic ways on how to get a someone’s attention – newspapers, especially the tabloids employ this strategy to make their papers sell like hotcakes!

    I believe that epic content is when it can somehow provide answers to questions that your readers have, or it can help them significantly. After all, the main reason why people read is to obtain new information or re-learn old ones that might be able to help them in any way in their daily lives.
