How to squeeze every drop into your work

So, squeeze every drop of it...

Really delve into ideas, and build answers to questions people really want to know.

You want to know how to write perfect long-form content, right?

Well... let us show you.

How To Organise Your Article

How To Write Articles...? Organise

Make sure to segment everything in a way that's easy to read and understand.

The average human attention span... 7 seconds.

The way you crack long form content, like you see us do here, is find the perfect balance between headlines, and surface level information, and provide depth and guidance.

You have to realise, people don't want to spend as much time on your work as you did writing the damn thing.


  1. Use images: Add color and use visuals to draw the eye, like gifs and other pieces of artwork and video.

  2. Give clear bold headlines: Let the reader know how far along they are.

  3. Provide information, simply: Just like this. Bullet points, numbers, graphs and infographics. Make it simple. Make it easy.

You can always have long paragraphs as well in your 5000+ word article.

But this isn't Anna Karenina.

No need to be a novelist. Ok?

Make Them Burst With Excitement...

Make Them Burst With Excitement...

Well, it's an article, so it's not going to feel like Christmas morning. But get as close to it as you can.

Keep it juicy. Make it humorous, shocking or intriguing.

It must be memorable, and useful. Both of those together. That's how you get people to re-read and come back to you, (just like you will).

Take Them To More Than One Page

Take Them To More Than One Page

You can fit everything in one place...

It you want to not spill over, build other articles to send people to, so you don't overwhelm them. Tackle what you feel you can, then direct them elsewhere.

If you want to delve into a topic further, write another article, and send them to a new tab.

It will allow their focus to stay with you, if they are disinterested.

And allow their focus to go there instead, if that's really what their heart wants to know.

Consider it more of a filtering system, sectioning the readers interest off into other areas.
