Headline

The headline is an integral component of any blog post - it’s why someone will bother to click on the post in the first place. When submitting your final draft to the OSI Affiliate team include 3 headline options.

Introduction

Your introduction needs to capture the reader’s attention.

The first few sentences should be punchy, short and to the point.

Use this opportunity to highlight a pain point of your reader and connect with them personally.

As I’m reading the introduction I want it to be clear as to why I should continue reading the post, and why I am going to want to share it with others.

There should be one overriding point that your post is trying to make (the ‘Ace’) - you will anchor the rest of the post to this point.

Body

The body of the post should achieve the following:

  • - Anchors back to the ‘Ace’ you articulated in your introduction
  • - Sentences are short and easy for the reader to digest
  • - Sub-headings and dot points are used to break-up the text
  • - It informs the reader, before promoting the author
  • - Topics are not over-explained, the reader only gets the information they need
  • - Helpful links are included where necessary (internal and external)
  • - Relevant images, informative screenshots and graphics are included

Conclusion

  • - Summarises the key points of the post
  • - There is something clear the reader can put into action
  • - The power of the ‘Ace’ is re-emphasized
