DON’T – Use the same titles per different paragraphs. You don’t want to seem spammy and make a wrong impression to search engines itself or get readers easily bored.
DON’T – Focus on content only. Visuals are known to be important. According to a previous article on Publer, visuals are the best way to represent a specific service or tool. Visuals help the audience remember and understand better any kind of information you want to share. Also, they help save a lot of time – what’s better than a video that explains everything in detail?
Too much text will distract the readers. Regardless if you’re using bullet points or not, people want to see tons of media to get curious.
DON’T – Let your page load too slow. Instead, take some platforms into consideration and try to optimize media. We on Publer are currently using ezGIF to optimize all photos, videos, and Gifs we attach to each article on Publer’s Blog.
