Anatomy Of The Perfect Blog Post: A Complete Guide To Ideal Blog Post Structure And Formatting

When you spend a fair amount of time crafting that blog post, you want it to count. You want people to read it. You want people to share it. You want to get some traffic from it.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen.

There are certain things you can do with every blog post you write in order to increase it’s potential for effectiveness.

In truth, there is no such thing as perfection. The idea of a “perfect” blog post doesn’t exist. However, there is both art and science behind an optimized blog post. The art comes down to how good of a writer you are, your topic, etc. The science, however, comes down to proven best practices.

In this guide, we’ll cover those best practices.

Table of Contents

We’re going to boil this down to 9 different factors to optimize for maximum potential:

The Headline
The Feature Image
The Hook
The Link Strategy
The Sub-Headlines
The Images
The Content
The Viral Coefficient
The Call To Action / Opt-In

Before we get started, grab your copy of the 46-point checklist that summarizes this very post into a digestible form that you can check off on every blog post you wr…

Focus Mapping: An Exercise I Perform Every Morning Before I Get To Work (Part 2 of 2)

In this video, I continue on the subject of my last video. In this one, I talk about focus mapping.

This is a simple exercise that I do every single morning before getting to work. It guides me on the tasks I do that day, and most importantly… it helps me weed out the ones which are a waste of my time (or that I shouldn’t be doing).

In this video, we go right to my screen and I’ll show you exactly how it works.

Transcript

In this video, I’m going to talk to you about what a focus map is.

This is a tool that I use every single morning which really helps alleviate waste of time during my day and makes me a lot more productive. In this video I’m going to show you how it works and you’re going to find that it’s really, really simple.

I’m David Risley from Blog Marketing Academy. And in my last video, I talked about this little black notebook and how I’ve used it to become a real powerful productivity tool. Basically, when I leave the house or when I go most places, I don’t bring my laptop or anything unless I’m going to really do work. I bring two things… I bring my iPad mini and I…

A Productivity Tool That Has Transformed My Work Day (HINT: It Isn’t Software)

A few years ago, I adopted a new productivity tool into my daily workflow. This isn’t a software tool. In fact, it is something you can easily buy for a few bucks.

As you can probably tell from the screenshot, it is actually just a simple black notebook.

What do I do with this notebook which provided a HUGE sense of focus to my daily schedule? And, even though I sorta dropped the habit for a little while (hey, I’m human, too)… I’m bringing it back as we tear into 2018.

This video was originally recorded in 2014. I am bringing it forward again since I think it is still highly relevant. 🙂

Video Transcript

In this video I want to talk to you about a single, very simple productivity tool that I have implemented this year and know that isn’t software.

Alright, like a lot of people, I look for ways to increase my productivity. I’m a stay-at-home entrepreneur so basically, there’s nobody there to hold my feet on the fire. If I don’t get things done, nothing happens. It’…

How To Avoid The Most Common Pitfalls While Growing Your Online Business

Starting and growing an online business is kinda hard. Let’s just call it like it is, right? 🙂

It can lead to a few hair-pulling moments, especially for newbies. And it is made more difficult when you’re trying to do it all in the midst of regular life. Day jobs, family, errands, you name it.

I’ve been teaching online business for years now. I’ve worked with a LOT of people. And I’ve noticed certain big things which usually get in the way of progress.

There are 3 things that are absolutely the most common constraints to people working on building their online business. They are:

Lack of available time. Usually that catch-22 of having a day job which takes up most of your time, seemingly leaving little time for much else.
Information overload & overwhelm.
Lack of technical know-how.

Most other things are more of a formality and easier to overcome by way of my training. But, those 3 things… a little more interesting.
