Evaluation of Blog #1289 (04/15/2017) (healthy plate) by Rhoda Israelov at Say It For You
HEALTHY PLATE BUSINESS BLOGGING
In honor of National Nutrition Month (last month), my friend Mary Ann Wietbrock published a blog post that exemplifies some of the key advice points I’ve been offering in my Say it For You business blogging tutorials:
- “Grabber” opening line or focus sentence
“What is on your plate?” Wietbrock asks. Sure, in any SEO marketing blog, it’s the keyword phrases in the title that start the job of getting the blog found. But, once the online visitor has actually landed, it takes a great opener to fan the flicker of interest into a flame. In fact, a big part of blog content writing, I’ve found, involves getting what I call the “pow opening line” right.
The picture is colorful and illustrates the precise points the author is stressing in the text. In business blogging. Every presentation, whether oral or written, needs a visual element in order to be truly effective. While the words you use to tell the story are the most important part of blogging for business, what visuals do is add interest and evoke emotion.
- Easy to understand chart
“This plate of food has the following essential nutrients and takes less than 5 minutes to prepare,” the blogger assures readers, for each nutrient listing the amount and the reason that nutrient is important. (the 12 grams of protein help build muscle; while the 292 mg. of potassium helps keep the heart calm.) Charts help organize the information in readers’ minds and aid learning.
- Offer of resources
“Menus available at www.cardinalelements.com.” links to the relevant page on the website. One way to add value to a blog is to aggregate resources for the benefit of your readers, both your own and outside content. In fact, by “marinating” our own ideas in others’ material, we never run out of fresh content to satisfy both search engines and searchers.
- Calls to action
There are at least four calls to action in this one short post: (Contact at…..(phone number and website, Request menus, Sign up for Lunch&Learn, Comment). Does asking for a customer’s business invalidate the good information provided in the blog? Not in the least. When people go online to search for information and click on different blogs or on different websites, they’re aware of the fact that the providers of the information are out to do business. But as long as the material is valuable and relevant for the searchers, they’re perfectly fine with knowing there’s someone who wants them for a client or customer.
Does your business blog include all the elements of a “healthy plate”?
