Great content should come in a great package otherwise it’s a wasted effort. Today we’ve been discussing how helps you with packaging your EPIC content our members are helping you with:

***Please read the full chat script here

There are three ways MyBlogU helps you:

  • Make your article user-friendly by adding on-page “Jump to” links (they work great for both usability and SEO especially if the article is long! Draw readers in!)
  • Feature your thought leaders properly: Generate “About participating experts” chart linking to their social profiles and informing the readers of who the contributors are (This will both incentivize the participating interviewees to share the article more and make the piece more trustworthy as well!)
  • Add contributors’ photos to make the article more “human” at a glance: Readers will see people behind content (many of whom they may recognize) and thus will be more willing to share the article on social media!
