Long-Form Blog Posts: Advantages & Drawbacks

It's alright to write and publish a blog post that is less than 1000 words. However, if you want your visitors to stay on the page longer (and read more), then long-form blogging should be considered as an option. Longer posts can help increase leads and conversions by 3x-30x times because these types of articles provide value for many keywords in search engines like Google.

Advantages

  • Share your expertise, experience and experiments
  • Build unique brand authority through free organic traffic
  • Make a deep connection with your target audience
  • Get more shares, comments, likes, rankings, traffic & leads

Drawbacks

  • It's time consuming, research intensive and energy draining
  • It requires personal expertise, experience and experiments with the topic covered 
  • It requires a dedicated content team or reliable outsourced partners, to create them on a regular basis

With Long-Form Blog Posts & Go Viral!

"The returns and results from using long-form content strategically can be huge."


Long-form content (e.g. 'ultimate guides' blog posts) is "resource-intensive. It is usually not quick to produce and often requires a significant investment of time and resources. However, the returns and results from using long-form content strategically can be huge."

TIP: Blogging is not easy, it needs to be ultra-strategic;
