Online Store Blog Idea #10: Write a how-to guide for a product


A how-to guide for one of your products is a very effective post for your online store blog.  So effective in so many ways, such as:

  • High quality, unique content that is likely to rank well for your keywords
  • Opportunity for deep links to your product pages
  • Enticing readers to click through to your online store, as in the example below from Sara’s Soaps ‘n Such
  • Helping and educating your readers in the use of your product so that they feel comfortable enough to make a purchase
  • Highlight your knowledge and expertise as the go-to person in your field.

And don’t think that how-to guides only suit some types of products.  You might be surprised at the information that readers are searching for.
