How telling a story can help your content: 4 tips for better blog writing | couch & associates

"There is one feature of a story that bloggers should make a decision on: characters. Building a character doesn’t necessarily require you to create a fictional mascot that is the star feature of all of your posts. Although this works for some brands, it is not the only way to create a connection between your blog and readers. You can also choose to change point-of-view, or use real life examples in your posts."

 

Read the full article to find out more about these introductory tips:

1. Personality is key

2. Know your hero and know your villain

3. Point of view

4. Beginning, middle, end

This was my favourite take-away from this article.  It clearly explains who a villain is for most organizations - the customer's problem:

"You are their hero, and their problem is the villain. Sometimes remembering this makes it easier for people to write out their story, because they focus on the steps that the hero needs to accomplish in order for the villain to be defeated."

Omar Kattan's curator insight, September 21, 2013 1:31 PM

An excellent guide on making your blog posts more readable by utiilising storytelling elements and techniques.
