janlgordon's insight:

I selected this article and infographic from Hubspot because it's concise and has everything you need to create something that will provide value for your audience and give you the results you're looking from your content.

Here are some highlights:

Shorter Paragraphs

Also, part of catering to that whole people-love-to-scan-articles-on-the-web thing is writing short paragraphs. It’s much easier for people to scan when there are small chunks of content to look over -- so make sure you’re keeping your paragraphs short and sweet.

 Relevant Internal Links

Blog posts are often the first interaction people will have with your company, but you don’t want it to be the last. So make sure you’re including a reasonable number of relevant internal links to other pieces of your content throughout your post. These links could be helpful to your readers.

Smart CTA

Smart CTAs help you show tailored content to people in different lifecycle stages or lists in your database -- and because the content is more relevant to them, they’re more likely to convert.
