|What's your call to action?|
For today's task, write a new blog post for your blog. In the blog post, include a call to action at the end of the post.
What's a call to action?
I include calls to action at the end of all my posts. Sometimes, they are links to products and services offered by my employer (F+W Media) or some other entity. Often, I include links to other posts and ways to follow me on other sites. Even the share buttons are a call to action of sorts.
Why include a call to action?
A call to action is good for giving readers direction and a way to engage more with you. Links to previous posts provide readers with more helpful or interesting information. Links to your social media profiles give readers a way to connect with you on those sites. These calls to action are beneficial to you and your readers.
What if I'm just getting started?
Even if you are completely new to everything, you should have an earlier blog post from last week, a Twitter account, a Facebook account, and a LinkedIn account. Link to these at the end of your blog post today. It's a proper starting place.
And that's all you need to do today. Write a new blog post with a call to action at the end. (Btw, if you're at a loss and need something to blog about, you can always comment on that article you shared yesterday.)
