199 Flares 199 Flares ×

I have less than 5 seconds to capture your attention with this post, so here goes – if you read the next 2,500 words or so, you’ll learn how to write epic content that spreads naturally allover the blogosphere.

What makes your blog worth reading?

There are a thousand articles out there about how to write great content, but do you read each one of them? Online readers don’t spend their time on reading a blog which is full of fluff – everyone wants meat.

Don’t be the 100th person to write the same thing. 90% of the online people don’t want to read yet another ordinary posts.

They want unique and unusual content that makes them to read your blog without skimming even a word.

Keep reading…

What is epic content?

I’ll define epic content in a simple way..

[note]If a first time visitor takes a look at your blog and thinks  – “Man.. this guy really knows what he is talking about”, that’s called epic content.[/note]

Your content is the ONLY reason people read your blogs, buy your products, or hire you. When it’s epic, undoubtedly you can make your blog stand out from the remaining crowd.

Most epic contents will match at least one of these:

Why create epic content?

Three reasons to write top notch contents on your blogs.

  1. Google wants to remove poor quality contents from the search results
  2. Google wants to reward high quality contents with improved rankings and
  3. Epic content improves your brand, authority, shares, links and sales

Aim for timeless topics 90% of the time

Writing content that will be relevant even after a year from now has tons of value.

Epic content resonates with people. Don’t underestimate your time and energy. But make sure you are creating something that has value even after the years to come.

But how to choose timeless topics to write?

I always find this tip most valuable – solve your own problems. First, find out your own problems before solving others. Analyze what troubles your blog is facing – is your blog not getting enough traffic, visibility, product sales or leads?

Find out the solutions to your problems. By solving your problems, there are two major benefits. One: you can help others to solve theirs. Two: you can make your blog a “one stop guide for solving readers problems”.

Everyone loves to read, buy and link to the sites which solve their blogging problems.

Another way of writing timeless content is this – read and analyze blog comments. There are hundreds of people who are asking questions, but most people ignore them.

After you hit publish on your next blog post, head on over to Google blog search and find other people who have wrote about the same thing. If it is fairly popular, there will be quite a few blogs which have covered the same subject recently, so go to their posts and join in the conversation by leaving a comment. Anyone who clicks on your comment from that site will find very relevant content, as if it is an ‘extension’ of the site they were just reading, and they’ll probably stick around for quite a while.”
Glen Allsopp, ViperChill

Here’s how you can find and solve your blog readers’ problems more effectively.

  • Use Quora, Yahoo! answers or Topsy
  • Spend time on reading comments on popular blogs (most top bloggers don’t respond to their readers’ questions – they’re extremely busy!)
  • Use forums related to your niche and spend time in answering the questions instead of spamming the forum with your links

Pro tip: Remove dates from your blog posts. Newer is always better. People don’t find it interesting to read a post that was published a year ago. If you want a clear explanation, I can give you an example.

Which blog post would you rather read?

Wow your readers with first few lines

Let me ask you a question – why are you still reading the post even after knowing it’s freakishly long?

The credit goes to the head turning introduction lines. If the introduction draws your readers attention, it will certainly encourage them read the entire post without skimming. So what type of introduction grabs your eyeballs?

Any one of these can create curiosity

  • a quotation
  • an interesting story
  • surprising statistics or
  • wacky introduction lines (I use this A LOT)

The dumbest mistake most bloggers make is this: they add too much description in the beginning of their posts.

Guess what?

Too much description in your introduction KILLS the curiosity. Try to keep your first few lines as short as possible. Make your introduction so interesting that your readers don’t want to skim even a word.

Why first few lines of your blog post are so important?

Great introduction lines will

  • Draw attention
  • Deliver complete message
  • Pull your reader into the body

Boost blog traffic does a great job by writing catchy introduction lines

Boost Blog Traffic   Getting You the Traffic You Deserve

So learn to write great first lines, here are few amazing tips to write irresistible introduction lines.

Write headlines that electrify readers

We are busy. Our attentions spans are very limited.

There’s only one way to grab busy readers’ attention: create curiosity. I firmly believe, bad blog titles are the ONLY cause of zero or less blog traffic.

If someone lands on your site, they will first skim through the titles of your blog posts. If they don’t find them interesting, they will simply hit X button on their browsers. To grab their attention, always spend quality time in producing award winning headlines.

Here are 5 incredible resources to help you write killer headlines:

Pro tip: “Captivate the reader, hook them, and make them want to read more” – this is the success formula for creating great headlines.

Throw them a bone

I must admit this post is very long.

If you’re getting bored, here’s something interesting and funny to read.

Make your blog posts easy to skim.

There’s a hard truth in blogging, most online people don’t read word to word.

How can you make it easy for the readers to easily skim through your posts?

  • Write clear and concise sentences
  • Keep paragraphs short and tight
  • Use lots of bullet points, bold letters, and deep sub heads to create curiosity to make them read you entire copy.

Now.. you can ask me, why write for skimmers?

There’s a simple logic – when you go to a book store or amazon to buy a book, what will you do? You will simply skim through all the contents, especially the chapters, table of contents, headlines etc.

Agree?

The same rule applies to online readers. Before they want to spend their quality time in reading your stuff, they ask themselves these questions – is this site worth my time? Is this article worth reading?

If you grab their attention in less time, you’re done! Take it for granted you got a new loyal reader. So always write for the web audience, make use of short paragraphs, appealing images, relevant linking etc to quickly grab their attention.

Last but not least, summarize the post. This is a MUST.

If you’re writing detailed articles just like this, you need to give a clear conclusion to your readers to easily digest your meat of the contents. If they find your summary interesting, they might read your articles again and again. Because no one wants to miss golden nuggets :)

Use 6-1-2 formula to create great content

To create epic content – you should find out few unique ideas, 6-1-2 formula is one among them. Be sure to use 6-1-2 formula to create great content on your blogs.

Use SIX sub heads: You can ask me why ‘six’? We’re discussing about creating epic content in this post, so obviously we need a big number to provide as much information as possible to the readers. Make sure you’re writing sub heads that are unique, interesting and create curiosity to read the body of the sub heads. Instead of using wordings for subheadings, use the alternative words. You can use thesaurus to find better words and synonyms.

Focus on ONE topic: No matter how much you cover or how detailed your posts are, they won’t go viral if you cover every topic that you come across. Focus on ONE single topic – and give A to Z information regarding the same topic. You can convince more people to read your blogs if your focus is narrow. Moreover, you can build targeted readers to create a loyal readership around your blogs in the long run by writing ‘single topic focused content’.

You can also use the number ‘1’ in 6-1-2 formula for using one appealing image or video. After all, graphics are everything to grab online people attention.

Include TWO actionable tips: Good content becomes great if it contains actionable tips. Your readers should take some action after reading your blog posts. If you can give two actionable tips for every single blog post you write, it become EPIC. No one ignores reading your blog and sharing your stuff if your blog is full of actionable tips!

Push them to act

When can you truly say you’re succeeded in creating great content? If someone takes action after reading your posts – you can call it as a true success.

What’s the use of writing great content without pushing your readers to take some action?

This is the most important point in creating epic content – your main focus while creating great content should be encouraging your readers to take action, even if it’s a small act.

How can you push them to act then?

It becomes easy if you have

  • Unique and attention grabbing headlines
  • Catchy introduction and
  • Great meat in your articles

And I’ve a simple theory to encouraging your readers to take action after reading your blogs. Use a call to action at the end of your posts. You can ask them to share, link or comment on your posts – if they REALLY find your content interesting, they will do.

One more effective tip is – use “OnePress Social Locker

This is a powerful WordPress plugin which is newly introduced to improve your social shares.

What does this plugin do?

You MUST give people a reason why they need to click your social buttons. Even if people like your content, they don’t click the buttons because they don’t worry about you. It’s not their problem.

Social Locker is a set of social buttons and a locker in one bottle. It allows you to lock a part of content on a web page until a user clicks one of the social buttons (Facebook Like, Tweet Button, Google +1) and help you to get more likes/tweets/+1s, traffic and customers.

Don’t talk the talk – walk the walk

[note]Only few bloggers (you can say 10%) are publishing posts with real case studies, stats and actionable tips. Everyone else is just rehashing what others are writing. That’s why the blog success ratio is so less – remember, hard work always pays off![/note]

Write what you know and learn from your experience. Don’t rehash what others are writing. What happens when you talk the talk (rehash the contents)?

No one actually cares.

Writing from your own experience is the easiest way to creating epic content. Why? People love to read personal experiences, because they will always provide unique points and they often stand out from the crowd.

You can write controversial posts, but be prepared to answer to negative comments on your blogs, because controversial posts always get lot of attention. When you pull their triggers, you will get more attention allover from the blogosphere. Don’t be afraid to write controversial posts because they involve with people’s emotions.

Do your own thing, create your own blogging rules, and learn from others advice but don’t try to walk in their shoes.

Pro tip: Post about what you want to learn. The key is that if you’re curious about the topic, there has to be other people who are curious as well.

Wrapping it up!

Wannabe a successful blogger? You need epic content your readers want to share.

[note]No matter how much expertise you have, your content can only go so far alone. The involvement of others elevates it to the next level, so create content that stands for something.[/note]

Creating epic content can NOT be done overnight – hell yea, no one can climb Mt.Everest within a day. But it is worth your time and energy because high quality articles will boost your online authority and build quality traffic – that’s what you need to build a better blog.

Sneaky bonus for those who made to the end of the post, here’s a simple writing tip to create great content.

Often use the word “you”. I always love to see the people who are writing to me, much as I like to know who I’m talking to on the phone.

Most of all, don’t sound like a corporate.

Talk to your readers as if they are sitting in your couch

I know creating epic content takes more time, and it’s harder – but it’s worth it. Above all, you want to create something you’re proud of and I’ll end up writing this post with Martin Luther King’s quote.

life's most persistent and urgent question

If you’ve a question, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’ll respond to each and everyone in the comments :)

Comments

  1. I have hell lot of ideas which are interesting, controversial in good way and amazing topics to write on.
    I feel so lazy to write because so many different ideas come at the same time and i get messed up which one should i actually write.
    I don’t want writers to write my blog because that’s not actually blogging.
    I need a solution for this. Because writing great content is not easy.

    • Ask yourself this question.. who cares if I’ve lot of ideas?

      There’s ONLY one secret to online success – work your butt off! If you feel lazy, another blogger will eat your meal sooner or later, simple as that!

      Just get started Anchit, that’s what all I can say!

      • Rahul, Gotta say dude, your writing skills are hell impressive. That’s why you get a lot of comments, even though you don’t have everyone’s favourate – commentluv plugin installed in your blog. Just wanted to ask how much time has passed since you have started blogging? And considering the no. of comments you get per post, you must be making some handsome money by now right?

      • Correct Achu and This happens with me :(
        Some Bloggers really ate my meal.. :(

        • @Rahul: CommentLuv is not the real reason for getting more comments (at least I believe). If you have really good content, no need to use such plugins, your content itself acts as a magnet to get more shares, likes and tweets (observe the shares on the very post) and I make enough money :)

          @Sugandha: work hard! Quit Facebook.

    • Is this a serious post? You’ve got to be trolling. If you really have that many great ideas, you should be writing all the time. I work 12 hour days as an Army medic and I still manage to get three to four posts in a day, almost seven days awake. I’m not rewriting Shakespeare, but I think it’s pretty entertaining. At least you took the time to complain of a non-problem on a website.
      Take a post-it, write down your ideas, and put them on your TV. They’ll stare at you all day when you aren’t writing and remind you that writing is what you should be doing.
      That’ll be $150 for services rendered.

      • I truly appreciate your efforts for posting 3 to 4 times a day while working 12 hrs – that’s incredible man, hats off!

        But what I firmly believe about posting frequency is this: get more visibility! It’s not the posting frequency that helps you build a popular blog, it’s all about building loyal readership. Make a note that, posting frequency differs blog to blog.

        Thanks for stopping by Scotty :)

        • Of course not, it’s what works for me and my brand of blog. I’m demonstrating that content will come if you are passionate about what you do. You won’t let things get in your way. The only thing that stops you is yourself.

    • Anchit,
      The same problem with me..
      I also messed up with the Ideas and Confused between them :(
      This is also one of the reason I’m not blogging these days :(

  2. Gotta say Rahul you deserve the + that you asked for on Google+. Pretty informative man. You have a unique way of presenting your thoughts, which is why I love to visit your site on a regular basis. Also while I am typing this comment, I can see an interview with my mentor – Neil Patel. A must read for me you know:).

    BTW how did you manage call up someone as successful as Neil Patel for an interview? Pass on few tricks fella:)

  3. And love the way this blog is designed. Can you help me out with my blog mate?

  4. Hi Rahul,

    You DID grab my attention with your first sentence – awesome indeed :)

    And that was what actually made me read right through, without really bothering about the number of words etc. I feel those hardly matter where the content you share has meaning.

    I so agree with all your tips mentioned. Killer headlines are the first thing that will attract anyone to your blog, after which is your first paragraph that you are always so good at! Hmm…need to take lessons in that one :)

    Oh yes…the content is what really matters and if you can keep your readers engrossed right through, in whichever way you try – you have succeeded I feel. Give the readers what they want or what they come looking for at your blog. Be clear, precise, straight, and honest in your writing. Using short sentences, with an easy to read language is an absolute must. That’s because our readers really have just a few seconds during which they might read through your post, or might just close it and open another one. Their attention span is what you need to grab foremost.

    One thing I still wonder whether we should so is not have the dates on our posts. I know you don’t and so do many other bloggers too, and you have your reasons for that. But isn’t that kind of misguiding people who visit your blog looking for their required content? It is vital where research articles or recent updates are required at least, though evergreen content could avoid them. Speaking of myself, I prefer having the date and sticking to a proper schedule of posting my posts – at least as of now I do follow that. I’m just wondering why else do people not disclose their dates…I get your reason, but are their any other.

    I’m bookmarking this post for the awesome links you’ve given that I’d love to check up on a little later – about killer headlines.

    Thanks so much for sharing yet another wonderful post with us, Rahul. Have a nice week ahead :)

    • Frankly speaking, I spent more than 1 hour just to write the first few lines. I strongly believe “great introduction pulls readers to read the entire copy”

      Spend more time, you will definitely get better at writing them.

      Regarding having dates on our posts, TEST! If your niche is related to IM, I suggest not to display them as no one likes to read OLD content. And I agree with your points too Harleena, really insightful :)

      Thanks for bookmarking the post Harleena!

  5. I must say that is post in an EPIC post! Awesome content, read every single word and really liked the social locker too.

    I don’t have any words to express what I learnt here :)

    This post is just another reason why I visit this blog over and over again.. Thanks for this awesome guide Rahul :D

    • I wanted my readers to take action while reading the post – it’s why I didn’t display whole content at once. Thanks for the appreciation buddy!

      Keep in touch Mahaveer.

  6. Great approach Rahul, you have the real meat in the content and happy that even Hyderabadi Bloggers too rock. Now that I have just started taking blogging seriously I would mind keeping the above said things about writing timeless topics, actionable tips etc.

    BTW can I ask one personal question do you have any personal reason behind posting your photos which are not clear. Saw your new photo in about me page it is not so clear and most of the time your photos wont give a clear picture of you. Sorry if it is personal, delete these lines before you approve my comment.

  7. I seldom use Facebook bro but I will check out.

  8. Rahul,

    They say “Late aa vandhaalum latest aa varuvaan”

    When there was no articles in LBT for nearly 3 months, my wife told me that you might be preparing for something outstanding and timeless.

    I have read it once and need to read it a couple of more times to get the full essence of it.


  9. Twitter:
    Now that’s what I call an EPIC shit. Incredible piece of writing Rahul.

    First few lines definitely plays a huge role. Keeping ‘em short, and interesting will encourage the readers to keep reading the post to the end. I tried to grab people’s attention by sharing a small stats of my blog in the first few lines of my latest post, I fear how you think of that?

    • There’s nothing wrong in using your blog stats, but always make sure you’re not bragging.

      You’re already killing it buddy, cheers :)

    • People love to see the stats and figure, these figure force them to think what the blogger is going to stat in the very next lines are anyhow connected. So according to me it is a very good trick to attract readers attention.

  10. Love your writing ! This is also a great treat for my brain as all other blog posts of yours ! Hats off man ! You can make people read ! Irresistible ! and hence EPIC* ! :)

  11. thanks these are all those qualities which are indeed to become a pro blogger.as you said epic content you shared some of the nice but creative ideas to do that job like facts ,breaking blogging rules.thanks rahul.nice work

  12. The role of content about what we are posting and what we are trying to convey our audience matters a lot.
    Really Rahul you have grabbed very good tips about making our normal content to an epic content, and i’ll surely try these in mine writings too. :)
    keep sharing!!!

  13. Hi Achu,

    Here is your Another AWESOME post which makes me FAN of your Writing. Just Love the way you write. :)

    Kindly Teach me Some New Words so that I can appreciate you. I’m now fed up to say you and your content AWESOME! ;) I’m lacking with the words :P

    Ohkey..

    Lemme start one by one..

    Again you have shared EPIC Content and I Love to say that “Man.. this guy really knows what he is talking about” :D

    TIMELESS Content Even I’m also thinking to write that kinda post and now you have give me Strong reason to write that kinda post.

    Post based on Personal Experience, I just love to read Experience Based post as a reader and of course we all are writing to solve the READERS problem. So it’s better to solve their problem first instead to write just another Shit. Like that point “curiosity”.

    First Few Sentences which makes Readers WOW and Headline, I’m learning this and you are really my Guru in this :D Learning both the things alot from you. Thanks a bunch for sharing the links and I’m going to check all one by one.

    Thanks for 6-1-2 Formula and as you have said to write content in small para’s.
    Even, i like to read small para’s content and I write in that manner also. :D

    BTW,
    Just a Little question,
    I have a TECH blog so is it good to remove DATES from the posts??
    or
    It’s just only better to remove Dates from other Niche Blog except TECH?

    Thanks Anyways and bookmarked this post for further links :D

    Suggu! :)

    • When used right, 6-1-2 formula to creating epic content can alone help you get more online visibility. It’s that powerful!

      Both the mainstream tech blogs, Mashable and Techcrunch don’t put dates on their sites. Now I don’t want to suggest you to blindly follow their path. Because there are few things to consider: one is, they update A LOT and the other is they have a lot of readership.

      It depends on you to put the dates or not, but the best advice is, instead of showing dates on blog posts, display them in the comments. Anyways, test them – remove dates for 2 to 3 weeks and see the results (if you’re already showing dates) and vice versa!

      • Will Surly going to try 6-1-2 formula plus that (50+10) tip :D

        Well, I got your point and will try this once for sure but not now later after some time when I start posting regularly :D

        Thanks for the reply really appreciate !!

  14. Rahul my exams are over and finally I decided to come to your blog..You have improved more at writing and this post can be only written by you…Creating Epic content is not easy but it is you who is making Indians bloggers learn the art of writing such type of content…Rahul you are a motivator and someone who has really got good popularity in blogging world due to the skill that you have…Looking forward to stay connected with you now as my exams are over…..

  16. Hello Rahul,

    The post is really helpful to create epic content :) , Iam thinking that how much effort you’ve put to create this epic post. Now coming to the epic content, the first thing i consider = Titles or headlines. Secondly images and quality content.

    Thanks for the new ideas.

  17. Hi Rahul ,

    Damn it ! I am too late to comment . Kickass post Rahul . I really loved the way you present stuff.

    I liked the quotes and the 6-1-2 methods.

    I used to display dates on my posts but after reading this one , I stopped displaying dates and I observe a spike in my traffic . Thank you Rahul .

    Regards,
    Naneet

  18. Most of the time I face great trouble while choosing the header of the article . Headline plays a major role to get the attention of visitors and then the next thing is content which makes the visitor to return to your blog next time . If the content is great then he will open the url of your blog before searching it in Google, coz they are lazy :).

  19. theres only one line i wish to say after reading this post

    Epic shit on creating Epic shit :-D

    @Sugandha and other guys have used the word “shit” so many times above that literally this post has started smelling like shit #just kiddin

  20. Content that is always king and if you write for user not for search engine than your post always be appreciate by reader for epic content title is important that catch the user attention and with images reader has a keep interest in your post. Thanks to sharing this tips with lots of research and it help to many of blogger to write epic content.

  21. I Love your opening statement “people don’t read the same content again and again” and this is the reason they skim or leave your site instantly they just see the same contant. Keyword research is the most crucial part of any content and if you are able to write any such thing that readers love to read no matter where are you, i am 100% sure that matter will rank higher in SERP.

    A beautifully executed article to write epic contect. Good Luck rahul.

    • Thanks for the comment and I’m sorry if I make your scrolling fingers sore.

      And coming to introduction, I take care about the first few lines, I simply hate reading/writing generic lines (because if you fail to draw your readers attention with the introduction, you fail to make them read the rest!).

  22. Is that the end? I really did enjoyed the post to the latter and it was simply an attention grabbing.
    Hey Rahul, it has really being a while. Hope you’re doing great?
    I want to reiterate the fact that, I sincerely do enjoy your epic posts!

  23. Ohhhhh…..Too long article, but i read it. BTW a lot of tips i really like u mention removing Date, attention grabbing Headlines, Search on google before wrting about anything, Original and interesting content, use subheads and list articles.

  25. Rahul, how come no new posts in a long time?

  26. Love this post, I learned a lot from this especially the more you work the better you will be.

  27. Without EPIC Contents its damn hard to rank now a days. The more quality content you post in your website the better. Stay away from conventional link building tactics. Google is going smarter than ever in 2013. Beware!

  28. It is important that your content is interesting to the readers.. also being unique.. Thanks for posting this article..

  29. Rahul, just like other posts of yours, this one is freaking awesome as well. Reading this long article was worth time. It’s time to implement what I have learnt from this article. I’m pretty sure that results will be in my favor.

  30. As a layman i have not read your post fully, but as a blogger i have gone through each single word thoroughly.
    The role of epic content is really very important for the life of your blog, and until or unless you are not posting what you call epic content no one make your audience stick to your blog. This is sometimes also referred as effective writing and it provide all meaning with minimum words.
    Anyways nice post…keep sharing!!!

  41. Hi Rahul!

    Fist time here (I found your blog through BloggingTipsToday’s list) :)

    Yep, it’s the epic content that makes the difference between an average blogger and the one that stands out.

    I’m getting more and more into this type of writing and it serves couple of benefits (on top of getting more readers to your blog):

    a) You can show your expertise, thus gain authority
    b) You learn more about the topic while doing the research

    Sure, gathering all the data and stats may take more time, but I’d say that more time you spend on your posts, it’s never time wasted.

    Cheers,
    Timo

  42. Great article, I shared it on my site for my readers and members. As the curator of a small startup I see articles and blogs all day long, and they are all trying to make the magic happen. I think you hit it on the money when you said epic content is required. Not many people are creating that type of content. They pass off short articles with little help to the reader and expect great results from it. Believe me those results are not coming any time soon. If you want people to share your work on social networks and promote you for free it better be epic content on a pro level that you are creating. I would love to see some of your articles on our site by the way.

    Thank you and good luck with your business.

  43. Hello Rahul,

  45. Rahul must say I am impressed with your writing skills. They are quite fluid in manner. The article is wonderful. Thanks for suggesting some sites for killer headlines. You definition for the term “epic content” was wonderful. I feel this is the best example of epic content.

  46. The old goody goody days of 500-post are gone; nor is it time to put one keyword in each 100 words of your post. Now it is only quality that matters. You may call it epic, pillar or quality content but it will be the only support to boost your blog. The way you told the readers all about writing great contents is awesome. Thanks buddy.

  47. I also found myself got confused while expressing my feelings while writing my blog. Sometimes it becomes very difficult for me to decide how to write a content that can engage my readers. Thanks for inspiring. Today really I have found a better way to write my blog. Thanks.
