What we want you to achieve is to tell your story better so that you can get better engagement or conversions for the goal that you are trying to achieve.

So firstly, I want you to define your goal into one of these categories.

  1. Web traffic (Discovery)

  4. Advocacy (sharing, referring, bookmarking)

Keep it straight to the point

Don’t waffle on and let them get bored. Be straight to the point and give them the gold nuggets of what you want them to get out of your content.

Tell a story

Everybody loves a story. Keep them entertained with the story or tale that you are telling.
