What’s the secret to the Perfect Blog Post? Social Triggers thinks they have the formula and I’ve included their helpful infographic below.

We need to grab attention with the first headline, entice people to keep reading with the opening sentences and give a promise or benefit to your readers to get them to continue reading the whole article.

Connect emotionally, give the reader an easy “soundbite” and a way for them to retweet or share on social networks easily, give them practical and useful content and then end with a Call to Action, such as joining your newsletter or sending people to your contact form.

How do your blog posts measure up?  I think I can definitely learn something from this too!
