Use these 17 different formulas to create incredibly compelling and clickable blog posts.
If you are a blogger and wanted to engage your readers, this formula is a must
I know people will say that written blog is dead and video blog is on the rise and content creators should focus their time and resources on it.
I agree that a video blog can attract new subscribers but if you noticed on YouTube, which is a widely used platform for video blogging, they link their website and written blog in the video so it compliments and helps each other to create traffic
So, if you’re thinking a written blog post is dead think again, there are still many people who read content than watch videos
And if your goal is to attract email subscribers and email sign-ups don’t exclude written blog post
So enough with the intro and explanation and let’s start…..
Each formula in this guide represents a different type of blog post you can use
Formula # 1: How To Guides And Tutorials
This kind of Blog Post guides your readers step-by-step through a particular process, showing them how to achieve the desired outcome.
Examples are: How To Lose Weight In 30 Days Or Less. How To Earn 5,000 Pesos In 1 Hour.
Make the title of the blog post engaging and fresh so readers will click on your blog.
Also, it should be a good idea to include bullet points of the guide so readers can quickly scan your post and it’s friendly to the eyes

Formula # 2: News And Current Events
People are naturally nosy and wanted to know what’s happening around them, so it’s only natural that news and current events can attract curiosity and people will click on your blog.
But be mindful that this kind of blog is only effective while the event happened, and when the interest in the event dies out and so the blog post.
So how can you start in this kind of blog post?
Write about relevant news and current events, and inserting your own thoughts and commentary.
The rule in this kind of blog is to write and publish fast, if you publish your blog post and interest in the event dies off, then your blog is worthless
Formula # 3: Controversy
Controversy, Scandals, and Mischiefs.
No wonder celebrity magazine and gossip magazine makes money by providing their readers with scandals, controversy, and mischiefs.
Do you know Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? And how they opposed the status quo of the royal family in England?
This is the story publishers want to gain exposure and creates lots of traffic to their sites
In order to write this kind of blog post. Write about a controversial subject in a way that is helpful to your readers and not overly offensive.
Formula # 4: Checklist
By helping your readers remember everything they need to about a particular subject by creating an in-depth checklist.
This kind of blog post is very helpful, also the other thing to complement this kind of blog post is to create a downloadable checklist.
Create a checklist that readers can download and you can create an email sign-up form before they can download the checklist.
This way your blog acts as a sign-up form to gain email subscribers that you can use when you want to push more content or promote your products and services to your email subscribers
Formula # 5: Listicles
Listicles are like a checklist
But instead of a checklist for how-to guides and tutorials, Listicles are an extensive list of items that are relevant to your readers.
As always when writing this kind of blog post number the list or use bullet points and ensure it’s listed in order
Formula # 6: Case Studies
Case Studies are the best way to show your readers how you or one of your customers achieved success during a specific timeframe.
This is useful if you’re selling a product and service that creates results. By using this kind of blog post you can off that what you’re promoting is effective and can bring in results for them.
To complement you can embed a video interview or a video of a person who uses your product or service explaining how effective it is.
Formula # 7: Profiles And Interviews
Profile or interview is a great way to show your readers that you are an expert and you are interviewing someone who would interest your readers.
By interviewing someone who is popular in your niche it shows that you are an expert in the niche because someone who is popular won’t be accepting interviews from anybody.
When you are starting out, interview people who are just starting out as you do but achieved results and gradually ask popular people in your niche to be interviewed.
If they can see that you interviewed some then they might likely say yes to an interview

Review sites and product comparison sites are popular these days before anyone makes a purchase
