I need to write more blogs with a number of why to or reasons to, so I decided to write a blog on why I should do it more often…

First reason,  a blog that is associated with a number of reasons why to or why not to, is going to be read much more than a blog without a list of reasons why to to or why not to.  It Does not matter if the blog has anything of value, numbers of reasons and whys, equals a number of clicks…

Second reason, we live in a society that wants and expects instant results.  If there are only a select number of reasons or ways to do something then it must be easy to comply and check them off the list.

Third reason, while people like to think those in social media are above call to action advertising and it’s all about engagement, call to action often does win, and titling your blog with a number is a little like call to action.  We often over estimate the intelligence of the consumer, listing something as simple as how many numbers it takes to do something works so much better than a thought out clever title.

Fourth reason, writing a blog about giving a specific number of whys or reasons will get you more hits and might expose those hiys to something else that you wrote, although most will probably be looking for another blog with a specific number of reasons and whys.

Fifth reason, try it!  Next time you are writing a blog, title it with 7 ways or 7 reasons and see what happens… Seven seems to be the popular and most effective number, which is why I used five, I always like to buck the trends, and I am looking for those with a little less patience 🙂
