Making your post shine
Make your call to action clear! What is it that you want the audience to do after reading your post? Make sure you include a link or other way for people to complete your call to action.
Add contact information! Sometimes readers want to call or email with questions. Include your name, email address or phone number. (And sometimes our editors need to contact to clear up any confusion before publishing your news.)
Grab your reader’s attention!
- Use bulleted lists, numbered lists, and hyperlinks to catch the “skimmers and scanners.”
- Keep your post short.
- Use short sentences in short paragraphs.
Place important information at the top.
Important information is what gets the reader’s attention and your call to action! Try to keep in mind that what’s important to you may be different from what’s important to the reader.
Add meaningful pictures if you have them, and you have permission to use them.
If you are not the photographer, contact them first and ask for permission. If you’re the photographer, make sure that any friends in the photo give you their permission to use the photo in the newsletter.
Last but not least, check your grammar and spelling!
