Essentials for a blog post

Q&A was part of Next Level Practice, the most supportive community for therapists starting a private practice. In this video, Joe answers the question based on what the essentials for blogging are.


What are the essentials of blogging?


I also recently interviewed Marisa Lawton and she talked about the six essentials for a blog post. They are:

  1. Have a really compelling headline.
  2. Create a hook so that people see it in their feed next.
  3. Have a bit of a story about ‘before’ something happens. So, maybe you’re talking about depression, you might say what’s it like before therapy for people. Then, talk about after therapy and the results of therapy if people do what you’re suggesting. So, maybe, they’re sleeping better and or they’re socializing more. What’s the results of taking action?
  4. Give some educational points.
  5. Use numbers, for example: ‘three’ tips – those sorts of things.
  6. Having a clear call to action back to your website.
