While having a catchy headline results in getting more people to click on your link in search engine result pages and social media feeds, but having a good title only cannot do anything alone.
You need to feed your readers as much as you at the best quality possible. Hence, its must for you to write killer posts for moving up at the ladder of success. Writing killer posts is not as hard as it may seem and for doing so, here are few simple steps to be followed that are unfolded below.
1. Create killer headings:
An interesting title catches reader’s attention and killer sub headings keep them engaged throughout their reading experience.
Properly written and placed sub headings are not only interesting to read, but they are easy to digest and follow.

2. Add your own story:
Blogs are a place of conversation.
You can find all information about anything at their official website or Wikipedia.
But blogs are different.
There needs to be a touch of real talking style and tone. It should be like two people are talking to each other sitting face-to-face.
And, the best way for doing so is to add your own real story or experience wherever appropriate.

3. Use attractive images:
In order in to write killer posts and then make them success, you need to know the importance of images.
Using attractive and relevant images in articles result in wonderful progress.
They make your articles look pretty and boredom free while at the same time, they provide readers something to look at for a while and start reading again after becoming fresh by that.
Don’t copy images from Google. Instead create your own or check out 101 ways to find images on WPhub
4. Make use of emotions and smiles:
Your readers are human beings right?
And, humans have feeling. ;)
A reader experiences different kinds of feeling while starting to read your article til the end. If you use emotions and smiles wherever suitable, it really makes it a real conversation.
And, trust me when I tell you, when you say something funny and put a smile at the end of sentence, anyone who readers will smile and love your words.
5. Use simple language:
This is a huge misconception particularly in minds of new bloggers.
They think they need to write high class English and do amazing references in order to create a killer post, but that’s not how it is. If you want to write a killer post then the only thing that you need to do is to express your point in such a way that it becomes clear and easy to understand.
The best way for doing so is by using simple English that everyone can digest.
6. Write in short paragraphs:
There are usually very long paragraphs in newspapers and books and some bloggers do the same.
But you need to realize one thing that no matter how good you write, if there are long paragraphs, not even one person will be interested in reading your blog post.
There is a difference between paper and computer screen. You can look at newspapers for hours without feeling anything bad, but it is impossible in case of monitors and LCD’s.
Your eyes cannot look at them and read long posts without having a brake. Hence, writing your posts in shorter paragraphs is a must for creating a blog post that works.
I simply tried my very hard to reveal the best practices for writing killer posts and now it’s up to you.

Ammar dont you think so if we save the image in pc and then upload it to our article/post and mention the source. Is it right approach? because making relevant is quite hard task.
It’s a good idea. You can go ahead But make sure to mention the source correctly.

Can you suggest me how I write post in easy english.
You can search for any online courses or offline courses. Make sure to read..read.. and read Then start practicing.
I have seen post getting more interesting when people add their own story as well add a little humor. It really adds the zing to one post. !! Nice tips Ammar!!
Thanks for the post. Good tips BTW.
While it’s true that humans have emotions, adding smilies and emoticons to your blog post doesn’t always work. I think it depends on what kind of niche you are in, whether it’s a serious or fun one. If for example, you’re blogging about forex or the stock market (which is obviously serious), you would not want to put smilies or emoticons on any of your blog post because this will make you lose credibility. If you’re the owner of a mom-blog or scrapbooking blog then put emoticons or smilies to your heart’s content.
Also I think tip #6 is still dependent on certain factors. Glenn Allsopp, author of viperchill.com is very fond of creating long posts hovering around 2000-2500 words. But people stick to reading his posts. Why? Because people learn something new with every paragraph. In the end, content is still king.
Hope this helps.
I am totally agree with your point of view. if we use attractive headlines , own meaningful story , paragraphs when actually needed than of course that killer content will attract more visitor to blogs. also simple language is necessary to use because every reader can easily understated it.
One of the best example :- “allbloggingtips” is one of the most useful blog which give useful information in easy format.

Can you tell me how you marketed allBloggingTips.com .

Nice post Ammar, I would like to add few more points here:
1. Use headings/subheadings
2. Add some humor
3. Give valuable information to readers
This was really a great post for writing an effective post everyday.
You can select a great post by following forums, asking visitors for their problems and following other blogs.
This post was really helpful.
nice post. own story is good to share. but it should’t be too much large. images should be informative and relevant to the concept of the post.
This blog post title is one of the example of how one should evaluate various titles. I remember I had also written something similar to this on my blog.
Article title is something which will decide whether the user will click to view the post or not. So, article title has to be catchy.
Stories are always perk to the whole blog post because they do help in keeping readers engaged within post.
Oh and how can I forget images. The selection of images will also help readers decide whether an article is attractive or not.
I’m really glad to see these three points in your article. The other points in my opinion are purely based on the views each individual.
Awesome article Ammar.
The best way to attract more visitors, I found is to write Series of posts and start a new series after a short time. ;)
