Book Description

REVEALED: How to Write "A-List" Blog Posts and Build an Audience of Raving Fans
Booklet Length: 7596 Words

What's the secret to blogging success?
It all starts with the content you create. You see, it's impossible to build a profitable blog if you're NOT providing value to visitors.

In "How to Write Great Blog Posts that Engage Readers" you'll get a simple system for writing blog posts that readers love!

Once upon a time, blogging was a platform for sharing your thoughts with the world. Now it has become a big business. You can't write about yourself and expect to make money.

What you need to do is create content in a strategic way where you're building a business.

Always remember this:

Most people read blogs for selfish reasons. Their loyalty largely depends on how much value you provide. They may "like" you, but they'll stop reading the moment you stop publishing great content.

Your goal is to always answer the "what's in it for me?" question that people have about your website.

What you'll get with this booklet is a proven recipe for publishing great posts on a regular basis. You won't just learn how to write the occasional "one hit wonder." Instead you'll discover a method for cranking out great articles on a weekly basis.

Follow the 5-Step Compelling Content Action Plan

"How to Write Great Blog Posts that Engage Readers" details a proven strategy for building a rock-solid publishing plan.

Inside this booklet you'll discover:
  1. 19 Compelling Blog Post Ideas
  2. 5 Steps to an Actionable Blog Post Schedule
  3. 12 Elements of Engaging Blog Posts
  4. How to Improve the Quality of Your Blog Content
  5. 9 "Must Read" Content Creation Resources
You can write great blog posts! Just follow this blueprint and you'll learn how to do it.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's a sales pitch August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To state this upfront, the question "how to write great blog posts" is not being answered in this booklet, the author merely suggests ways "how to market your blog post" while marketing his own material to you, the reader.

"How to write great blog posts that engage the reader" is just one more book of the thousands which are written by the same scheme:

1) The reader can get a free gift. (Nothing in life is free)
2) The author points out that with this gift he is giving away "some of my most guarded secrets" (How can these secrets be guarded when by time you download this free gift, thousands of others have already received it. This is nothing but an attempt to get your email address, so you can be pestered with more sales pitches.)
3) The words "blogging is big business" and "ANYONE can do it" are being thrown around. That in itself is a ridiculous thought. Surely you remember at least half a dozen kids in your high school classes who could not write one great sounding sentence much less a blog.
4) The author tells that his own 570 blogs have generated 345,000+ visitors. 345,134 : 570 = 605 unique visitors to each blog. This number does not sound that impressive.

Eventually the author addresses his title question - very vaguely:

"All you have to do is to think what people want and then create a collection of information that fills the need."

Yeah, wouldn't we all?

Steve Scott`s booklet continues to list a ton of steps, pitches, suggestions for pitches, and other facts, but nothing you haven't heard before, or could find out from others experts. His writing is interrupted by links to his website, which strongly suggests that this might be one way how he gets "unique visitors" to his blog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical guide to get results March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a quick read but full of good information. The author discusses the blog writing as a job with the goal of attracting business. He distinguishes between two main type of posts: MVP (Massive Value Posts) and FP (Filler Posts). The MVP is a post that the reader will really love because of the high information content but is also the post that will take a lot of time to compose. The FP is the post that is shorter but is also very valuable with information that the reader can apply immediately. The author then lays out 19 ideas on how to present a post: lists, how-to, story, etc..

The author recommends 10-20 hours of writing posts per WEEK using a structured approach of 2 MVP and 6 FP per month. He suggests to use a publishing schedule maintained in a spreadsheet to track the dates, subjects, type, audience, comments received etc.

The next chapter discusses elements of engaging blog posts and how to improve the quality. He also has recommendations on the layout of the post. He then wraps up the book with a summary, final thoughts and how to promote your posts.

Overall, I really liked his structured approach to writing blogs. I know it is not an SEO book but I was surprised to see that he does not even mention the importance of post titles. For an easy Wordpress SEO, I would recommend SEO for WordPress: How To Get Your Website on Page #1 of Google...Fast! (Read2Learn Guides) as a good addition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Steve's ebook offers valuable information for both novice and experienced bloggers alike. He offers multiple ideas on how to set-up, write and deliver blogs that will constantly deliver quality content to your current readers while attracting news ones at the same time. He writes out his ideas in an easy to read, progressive format that takes you through each step in the process and explains, in layman's terms, how to deliver the goods. I recommend this book to anyone who is just starting their first blog or even up to the intermediate level experienced blogger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pithy Little Book January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Steve Scott's books because you get concise, helpful information with no filler. I find many books of this type very annoying because they tease you with just enough information to make you want more but finish before they deliver the "more" part of the story. Scott does not do that. He gives you the information you need to do the job. Another great little book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Irrelevant advice, save your buck! July 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book stresses adding value in massive form but delivers absolutely none. It is full of platitudes and lists you can get for free in any content creation site worth two cents. Not worth the time and money, the author is clearly more worried about getting rich quick by blogging and selling ebooks, than by of being of help his readers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good information on writing blog posts. April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Steve Scott not only tells you how to write great posts, but to write posts that will keep readers coming back for more. It was written from a marketing point of view, but most of the concepts can be applied to any type of blog you wish to write. And if you've got writer's block, this just might help you think of new things to say.
