Financial planners are into blogging these days, and the FPA Practice Management Solutions Magazine offers “20 Tips for Becoming a Successful Blogger.”
As a longtime Indiana blog content writer myself, I thought one of Gary DeAsi’s and Evan Stone’s tips was “spot on”:
“Don’t be afraid to write in tried-and-true blog genres,” they urge, listing eight types of blogs they say are proven attention-getters”.
- Collections and top lists
- Editorial/ Personal reflection
Every one of these techniques can be used effectively for SEO marketing blogs. As a matter of fact, I’m inspired to challenge each of you Say It For You blog readers to come up with blog titles for as many of these categories as you can. If you submit your best titles, I’ll publish them here, along with some tips on fleshing out those ideas to suit your own business.
Here are a few of my own title ideas for future for blog posts. (These are designed to arouse curiosity while incorporating a Say It For You keyword phrase in each title.)
