  3. 3. Is it really that important to post at a certain time? Time The fact is that people check their email and social media first thing when they get into work. And teens tend to check when they get off from school. So sometimes, it can help you to post at certain times. But the fact is that if you keep posting regularly and writing good content, the time you're posting at is not going to matter that much.
  4. 4. Sure, you might get a lot of hits by writing about the hot celebrities of the day. But are these the types of hits that you want? Celebrities Are any of these people going to turn into customers? Probably not. So writing about celebs may get you more hits in the short term but doesn't help you any in the long run.
  5. 5. If slang comes naturally to you, then sure, feel free to use it. But if you're forcefully using slang into order to appeal to a younger age group, you can be sure they'll have you figured out in no time! Slang
  6. 6. No one wants to read big words that they don't know or understand. Jargon There might be some people who will be impressed by this type of language, but the majority will leave your website when they find they aren't getting any of the information they need.
  7. 7. Most people assume they need to use attractive models on their websites if they want to get more traffic. Attractive Models But the fact is that it's more effective to use relatable models—models who look at least a little bit like your customer. So why not mix it up and use models who are white, black, skinny, plus-size, men, women, young, old etc.? Your potential customers will appreciate you for it.
