6 Effective Ways To Make Your Content Scannable

How do you draw people to your content? How do you make them click your link? By having a catchy title, right?

How about keeping your readers attention? What’s a better way to motivate them to read through your entire post?

Scannable content. By organizing your ideas in easier format. By allowing your readers to have a visual break. By making your content EASIER to navigate. You don’t want to scare people off with extremely lengthy, uninterrupted text  (especially new readers).

Here's HOW:

1) Use subheadings
2) Keep your paragraphs short
3) Use lists
4) Use visual aids
5) Highlight important points
6) Use readable fonts

Ok Siri, I have no idea what or how you decided to answer that question.
The correct answer is ten days. Ten days until Easter Sunday. None of this {0, 0, 0} to the 0 nonsense.

Go home Siri, you're drunk.
