This is nothing but an article that gives a better user experience to our users because they have some important features to explain the answer as easily as possible.
What is the importance of user-friendly articles/posts?
This is important because it serves a better experience to our users or customer to understand our answer and if the user or customer experience is better then we got two benefits directly–
- Users will be able to read the full article with understanding, which means they will spend more time with us and this increases the average user time, which is good for us.

This is nothing hard when you understood it.
Quick style guide

- Use sub-headings
- Use images and videos
- Use bullet point
- Stay on the point that users are finding.
Here we discuss around 7 points to writing a user-friendly article step by step.
So don’t waste time and let’s get started it –
Collect a piece of sufficient information or knowledge about the topic on which you choose to write an article or your blog post.
Although for experts it is very easy, if you are a complete beginner, it will be maybe tough but don’t worry, we have the solution to this specific problem.
Let’s take the example that you want to write an article about “how can make money online?” but you don’t have sufficient information then-
- Come on to google or bing or other search engines and search “how can earn money online?”.
- Now open the top ten search results and read them carefully with a learning mindset.
- Open the notepad and note down the important information like heading, and lines that you think will be useful for you.
- After reading the top ten articles you should be gaining a piece of sufficient knowledge about your topic.
- So now start writing and you can maybe gain help from notepad data which we collect at reading time.
- Make sure that doesn’t copy the data from the notepad, only use it as an idea and write in your word.
As we know that “the first impression is the last impression” so, the starting lines of the article are majorly decided whether the user will be continued or will bounce back.
So write a short intro (brief summary) of your article that today what are you sharing and how can it will be helpful for the users. If possible then give a reason to the users why they read this article like “after reading this article you will be able to understand that ____________. so read it carefully.”
Table of content
It is nothing but a user manual that is told to users which heading and subheading are we cover in this article and give quick access to jump any step that is good so add the table of content in your article, usually after the intro or just above of blog post/article title.
Keep your language easy as possible, because maybe you are an expert but everyone is not, so for them keep it easy as possible.
Today no one has time for wasting so stay on the point and give the answer to solve the problem of users, don’t explain your unwanted knowledge.
Use images and videoes
The images and videos are an important part of any article or blog post, especially if you explain any process as a tutorial. Because the images and videos are given the chance to the user to better understand your tutorials.
In a general article or post, you may use the images just after headings and every 400 to 500 words.
The image and videos will give us extra benefits–
- It attracts the attention of users and
- It will also drive traffic to our blog from search engines’ image and video results.
Write a final thought
Write a quick summary or a final conclusion of the article.
The elements (like table, bulleted points or number list, and many more) are helping to design your article and making it beautiful.
Ask questions to the user
Give a hidden command to users for sharing experience.
These points are basic but important so please follow them to write a user-friendly article.
But if you don’t want to follow them then I have an alternative to this.
Ask yourself and your minimum of 10 friends who think attract them in articles or blog posts when they read them, note down all thoughts and use them in your article or blog post.
I wish this article will be helpful for you.
