Writing Style: How to hit a home run with the SEJ audience
- Make non-obvious points. Tell people what they don’t know, but need to know: Think ROI
- Be conversational. You’re talking to trusted peers
- Tell people upfront and clearly why they need to read your post, and then deliver on it
- Headlines are your chance to make a first impression. It should be attention-grabbing, short and provocative
- Use list-based posts sparingly.
- Be authoritative, opinionated, engaging and factually correct
- Don’t be bombastic, verbose, wishy-washy or insulting
- No acronyms with the exception of SEO and SEJ
- Infographics are the stickiest content type. If you want to publish your original infographic (not copied from another site), we will go the extra mile to promote your post via our social media channels. Please get in touch with us at infosearchenginejournal.com
