What do you want your reader to do? Give it apowerful ending. If you inspire people to act, they will see results and love you for encouraging them.
Develop your personal writing voice. Dare to be a little different. Don’t try and sound like everyone else. This will help you seem less boring.
Clarity, conciseness, and connection: they make the world go round.
Draw your reader down into the rest of the post. Get them from one sentence to the next, working their way through your post. If people aren’t even reading, none of the other good benefits will come.
You need to make your audience curious, and you always need to spell out the benefit of them reading the post. Make prospective readers and subscribers think: I have to read that, right now!
