introduction Get a lot of attention.I have explored how to write Even as a reader, I always skip them. I realize that most people care about them, and a bad introduction will cause them to leave this article.

Now, I turn to the conclusions, which did not receive the same attention, but they are critical. The readers who reach them are already caring enough about this topic and can consume it all. Focus on the wrong aspect or ignore it, and you can make people leave your site forever.

People who finally read the #blog article care about this topic. @cotealexandra11 expressed through @CMIContent to give this main audience an ending that suits them and your business. Click to tweet

Your conclusion can be in multiple formats. They can:

  • Extract the meaning of the post
  • Tell people what you want them to get from the position
  • Attract viewers, let them comment, share or answer questions
  • Indicate what you want them to do next

Here are 15 options for creating more effective conclusions.

1. Solve multiple problems

When writing the conclusion, I tend to stick to the classic structure:

  • The last few sentences on the topic, plus a keyword mention
  • Call for action Product or service
  • Final questions or thoughtful content will inspire people to comment or share posts

This is an example of the multi-purpose conclusion of an article about Email marketing From “Get Response”:

In some cases, brands can replace people with “Join this Article” CTA through a small push like Buffer, to help people join the conversation:

2. Determine the priority of a call to action

Imagine the conclusion of your article as login page. Multiple CTAs can confuse readers. They can choose low-priority CTA links instead of links you really want to emphasize.

Roger Maftean’s post trade agreement Will help you create convertible content, so you can choose the best single-choice call-to-action as your conclusion. In this example, Adobe clearly stated what it wants readers to do:

3. Add keywords

There was once you really wanted to include a keyword in your post, but was it inappropriate? The conclusion of the article may be here.use Key words In the title and body. (You can also do this for high-priority keywords that are already in use.)

@cotealexandra11 said through @CMIContent that keywords or phrases that may not fit in the main text are added to the conclusion of the article. Click to tweet

In this example, HelpCrunch uses the keyword phrase “best practices for customer success” in its conclusion. How do we know this is a target keyword? Its URL includes the phrase: (https://helpcrunch.com/blog/customer-success-best-practices).

7. Sell smartly

If you have not managed to mention your product or service in the body of the article, please add a subtle mention at the end.

In this example from Zendesk, it mentioned: “If you are willing to give it a try, CRM can simplify the transition to remote work.” You might have guessed that Zendesk is a CRM provider. (The link points to a reference article, not a sales page.)

Like all content in the content world, no one can be generalized. If you have different types of blog posts, you can make your conclusions consistent with each type.

14. Get in touch with ranking factors

Conclusion is another way to deal with it Google’s ranking factors. Comments are counted as page content. Use sentences such as “Ask a question and bring your best or smartest below” to the reader’s comment section. Or “Let us know in the comments below.”
