1. Think like a client.
Be sure to pick a topic that is focused on a potential client problem. Narrow your focus in a way that will be meaningful to your audience and provide sufficient details such as self help strategies, symptoms, treatment options, etc. Tip: turning your blog into a “Dear Abby” style post or a numbered lists can help make a topic more engaging and generate more click-thru’s to view your profile page.
2. Make your title work for you.
Client scan titles first. Make sure your title is descriptive, compelling and contains your main idea. Tip: Use a colon, “Managing Anxiety: How to Get Through the Work Day.” Or, add a your numbered list to the title, “10 Tips on Managing Anxiety.” Also make sure you select a blog category so clients can easily find your blog!
3. Share your blog on social networks.
Once you’ve spent the time to create a thoughtful and specialized blog share your hard work with your colleagues.
