Marketing is critical for all businesses, but what if you find yourself running out of fresh ideas? Never fear, because Eric Siu the CEO of Single Grain has some great ideas!
1. Write Longer Posts: Now, the irony is not lost on me that most of my blog posts are on the short side, and this one will probably be also, but learn from my mistakes! Database company serolQ found that the ideal length of a blog post should be more than 2,000 words.
As you can tell from the graph above, top results are longer than the less searched sites.
SEO Moz found that longer posts receive more back-links, which is an important factor in Search Engine Optimization.
Here is more evidence to support the premise that longer subject matter receives more attention. The red bar represents Facebook “likes” and the blue bar represents “reshares” on Twitter. Clearly content with more than 1500 words does better than content with fewer words.
2. Use More Visuals: Zabisco found that 90% of the information that reaches our brains is visual, and 65% of people learn visually. Add more pictures!
3. Use Info-graphics: Correlating with the need for more visuals, is the need for more info-graphics. Make sure they incorporate useful things such as numbers, illustrations and graphs to capture the readers attention.

The cool thing about podcasts is that people can go about their daily lives while still listening to a certain podcast. They don’t need to keep their eyes glued to a computer screen.
