How to Create Killer Content for Your Blog | The FitFilled Life
In order to really benefit from getting traffic from Pinterest or any other social media platform for that matter, you need to make sure that you have a strong foundation in place FIRST.  Keep reading How to Create Killer Content for Your Blog for six easy steps that you should be doing every time you sit down to create a new blog post.
That means having a clear purpose and niche, a strong website, a kick-ass brand and some value-packed content upgrades in place.

Why?

Because you don’t want just ANY traffic, you want engaged ideal customers showing up to your website, being completely wowed by your content and then signing up for your e-mail list!

How do you do that? I’m glad you asked!

Step 1: Understand your audience.

Before you start to write, have a clear understanding of your target audience. What do they want to know about? What will resonate with them?

Step 2: Decide on a Post Format

  • List-based Post: 5 ways to get picky eaters to love their veggies
  • Curated Collection Post: 10 kid friendly veggie dishes
  • SlideShare Presentation: 5 kid friendly veggie dish makeover (with pictures)
  • News post: New study shows X% of kids don’t eat enough vegetables

Step 3: Write (and make it captivating).

First, grab the reader’s attention. If you lose the reader in the first few paragraphs — or even sentences — of the introduction, they will stop reading even before they’ve given your post a fair shake. You can do this in a number of ways: tell a story or a joke, be empathetic, or grip the reader with an interesting fact or statistic.

​​​​​​​Then describe the purpose of the post and explain how it will address a problem the reader may be having.

Step 4: Edit/proofread your post, and fix your formatting.

You’re not quite done yet, but you’re close! The editing process is an important part of blogging — don’t overlook it.

Step 5: Create Your post images.

You’ll need to create at a minimum a blog header and your Pinterest pins. Make sure you choose a visually appealing and relevant image for your post. I use Canva to create all my images.  It’s easy to use and they have a free version! Here’s a quick overview I did on YouTube.

Don’t forget to create multiple pin images for maximum sharing power!

Step 6: Insert a call-to-action (CTA) at the end.

At the end of every blog post, you should have a CTA that indicates what you want the reader to do next — subscribe to your blog, download an ebook, register for a webinar or event, read a related article, etc.

I hope these six simple steps will help you create killer content for your blog like a boss.
