I’ve done many short series and blog courses on this website over the past few years. It’s something I do enjoy doing, despite all the hard work I have to put in. It often feels like there is little return in the investment of your time and effort. But don’t let that stop you from creating courses! Here are some reasons why should create a mini-series on your blog!
If you find yourself stuck for content ideas, a mini-series is a great way to have ideas for a bunch of future posts. If you’re going to put out a new post in your series once a week, then that’s one less idea to worry about coming up with until the series ends.
Learning new things.
A good blog series requires a bit of research. Yes, you could write down everything you know already but it’s always a good idea to brush up your knowledge and see if any new information about your subject has come out recently.
You could be new to the subject yourself when I did my SEO series, lots of the things were new to me ad I spent hours researching and learning new things!
Gives readers something to come back for.
If your course is something that adds value to readers, they’ll come back again for the next post in the series. It’s a great way to earn some loyal readers!
Sharable content is great for helping your SEO as well as helping others find your blog by encouraging others to share your posts on social media and link to it on their own website.
It makes you feel good.
Not only have you created something that you should be proud of, but you are helping others in the process. It should give you a good sense of satisfaction!
