Hooking people in your blog introduction is an art and if you stay till the end I will share my 2 years of blogging experience and how I learned to write a hooky blog intro?


Earlier when I use to get 10-15 users a day I use to get happy because at that time I use to push more on social media a lot


So I use to get unique users but that fact is my bounce rate is dancing between 98-100% and some days is exactly 100%


Then I read plenty of blog posts but I didn’t get much knowledge from them all were the same and were just theoretical information and nothing works as much in reality.


Then I observed some of the ranking blog posts and I found a similar pattern of writing blog posts.


After observing plenty of blog post I conclude and finally figured out these 6 things you can use to write a hooky blog intro 


But, why should we focus more on the intro rather than the title?


Because the title works as an invitation to any party and a good Introduction decides whether to continue the party or to leave that party, go home and sleep.

Writing a hooky title will work and bring more users to your blog post but having hooky and catchy introduction will convert that random user into your loyal audience.


Have you seen the news headline and introduction?


That if you read any news headline you will always be in mystery and have a curiosity of knowing more.

Whenever you start writing your blog post open your blog by asking a question equation may be an open-ended question or maybe closed-ended question, 


but it should be a valid question that is directly connected to your content inside your blog post. 


The best advice is to always ask a question, which is answerable by every people who are reading the blog post. 


The question which you are going to ask should be the problem which is faced by many people

2. Explain major facing issues -


You don't have to give answers to your readers in your blog introduction because a blog introduction is just to elaborate on the questions and queries which readers have and the problem which they are facing. 


So you should discuss some of the problems which they are majorly affected by so that they can easily relate to your blog post with their problems. 


Because people always visit any blog post just to get a solution to the problem. 


So in the introduction part if you explain the problems so they can get Hope or a better idea about your blog content so that they will end up reading your entire blog post by just reading the blog introduction.

Always includes facts in your blog post introduction because it creates reliability of the readers into your blog post. 


One thing is to highlight is that whenever you add some facts into your blog post-instruction, make sure you Link out that Source from where you get it. 


People will not trust any statistics or facts unless they have the exact Source.

Although including facts makes or builds trust in You by the readers which helps you to get more and more engagement rate as compared to others.

6. Express your Research 


Whenever you write a blog post try to express your research regarding that blog post. 


But how


While researching your blog post you have to read 5 to 10 top-ranking blog articles on Google search engine. 


And create a comprehensive summarized way of all that article including your research + experience + knowledge in it. 


For example 


If one blog includes points  A and B 


And another blog includes points B and C.


So you have to include A, B, and C into your blog post in a very summarized and in-depth way. 


So that people will not get disappointed with your blog post by reading it. 


You need to provide as much content researched information you can so that it will build trust in You So then whenever they see your link in any of the platforms they'll tend to click it because they know that you always provide better content for them.
