6-Pack Abs … For Your Blog

by The 401k Study Group ®


Many articles have been written in the past about how to drive blog traffic.  Most are interesting, if you have the time to read them.

I once read that the phrase “6-Pack Abs” is a very good way to drive traffic.  Take this post as my little experiment with a side dish of my thoughts on good things to put into a blog post.

#6 (one for each Ab)  Do not use Industry Jargon.
#5    Find a famous quote to throw in (relevancy is a good idea, maybe Twain, or Churchill).

#4   Create a Good Title.  But hold off on “6-Pack Abs for Your IRA or 401k” just yet.

#3   Name others in the post and link to their work.  I do this often, its flattering and if the work is good you both benefit.

#2   Pictures work well.  I know they work well on Facebook but they work well on LinkedIn as well. Learn how to use Creative Commons.

#1.  Link a song or a video in your post.  I am partial to Bob Marley, or the Dropkick Murphys or a little Billy Joel but anything tasteful will do.
