How to Write a Professional Email

Email is an important part of business communication, so it’s critical to get it right. While emails aren’t usually as formal as letters, they should still be professional and present a good image of you and your business, community, or position. Follow the steps in this tutorial to create business emails that are true to etiquette and ensure professionalism.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Addressing the Email

  1. Address your email. Type the email address of your recipient into the To field. Use the To field if you want to email contacts while encouraging their response.[1]
    Write a Professional Email Step 1 Version 2.jpg
    • This field is for people that the message directly affects. If you are expecting someone to do something in reaction to your email, they should be in the To field.
    • It’s a good idea to include all of the people in your To field in the opening line of your email. This way, you engage everyone in the conversation from the start and inform everyone of who else is involved in the conversation.
    • If you have included more than four people in the To field, address the group as a whole by starting your email with something like, “Hi Team, or “Good Morning All,”
    • The To field can be used for as many addresses as you’d like. Remember, everyone who is directly involved and needs to take action should be included in the To field.
  2. Use the Cc field (optional). The Cc (or Carbon Copy) field is used as a way to keep others “in the loop” without an obligation or requirement to reply or take action on the matter.[2] Think of the Cc field as an FYI to distribute relevant information or updates to a number of associates who need only look through them. To add addresses to the Cc field, simply click on the Cc field and type as many addresses inside as you’d like.
    Write a Professional Email Step 2 Version 2.jpg
    • When Cc-ing multiple associates, each recipient will have access to the list of email Cc’s.
  3. Use the Bcc field (optional). The main purpose of the Bcc field is to send an email to a group of contacts that don’t know each other. The Bcc field (Blind Carbon Copy)[3] allows you to send a message to several contacts without them knowing who else got the message. To add addresses to the Bcc field, just click on the field and type in each email you need to include.
    Write a Professional Email Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • Use the Bcc field to send an email to multiple associates who don’t know each other. This protects the privacy of each recipient by keeping the list of recipients visible only to the sender and not to each recipient.
    • Use the Bcc field when sending an e-mail to hundreds of people.
    • Your contacts will be able to see anyone who the email was sent to in the To or Cc fields but not in the Bcc field.[4]
  4. Respond to an email Cc. If you are included in a Cc email, you are likely part of a handful of other associates all included in the conversation as well, and the sender may not be looking for or expecting a reply from any of you. If you do need to reply, think about the nature of your response and who it applies to. You can chose to “Reply to Sender” if you just have a note for the original writer of the email, or you can “Reply to All” only if the information is relevant to all involved in the conversation.
    Write a Professional Email Step 4 Version 2.jpg
    • Only when your comments are important to the entire group would you use the “Reply to All” field.
    • Be careful when choosing to reply to all recipients on the email. You should avoid flooding other people’s inboxes with irrelevant information whenever possible.[5]
  5. Respond to an email Bcc. If you have been included on an email Bcc you will only have the option to reply to the sender of the email and will be unable to see the list of other recipients who also received a Bcc. Simply click on the Reply button to compose an email to the sender.
    Write a Professional Email Step 5 Version 2.jpg
  6. Use a short and accurate subject header. Use as few words as possible to describe the topic or nature of your email. Rather than filling the subject with one or two vague terms, let the recipient know up front what they can expect from your email. Otherwise, it might fail to make the impact that it’s supposed to. Be as specific as possible when supplying a subject for the email without becoming overly wordy.[6] Try things like:
    Write a Professional Email Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    • “Leadership Meeting Update”
    • “Issue Regarding Lunch Breaks”
    • “Meeting Overview for March 12th”

[Edit]Composing the Email

  1. Stick to a standard structure. When approaching a professional email, it’s important to keep it clean, short, and clear. Say what needs to be said and keep it at that. You can develop your own structure that works best for you. Here is a basic structure to consider:
    Write a Professional Email Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • Your greeting
    • A pleasantry
    • Your purpose
    • A call to action
    • A closing message
    • Your signature
  2. Write your greeting.[7] To keep things professional and sophisticated, always open your email with a formal greeting, like “Dear Mr. Lu”. Depending on your relationship with the recipient, you can address them as expected, either with their entire name and title, or just their first name. If you’re not on a first name basis with the person, stick with their last name to avoid potentially offending them.
    Write a Professional Email Step 8 Version 2.jpg
    • If your relationship is very casual, you can even say, “Hi Gabe”. In most cases, it’s perfectly fine to open with a simple “Dear Marie.” If the nature of your correspondence calls for something a little more formal, it’s safest to use the recipient’s name alone as the greeting to keep things short and sweet.[8]
    • If you don’t know the name of the recipient, you can use: “To whom it may concern” or “Dear Sir/Madam”.
    • If you are composing an email to a group of recipients who you have included in the To field and require a response from, greet them as a group (if the number of recipients is four or greater) or include each of their names in the greeting.
    • If you are sending an email with Cc’s, simply address the group as a whole if you have a great number of recipients, otherwise include each recipient’s name in the greeting.
    • If you are sending an email with BCC’s, address the group as a whole by opening with something like, “Hi all”.
    • If you are emailing someone for the first time, keep introductions brief and let them know who you are in one sentence. For example: “It was great to meet you at [X event].”
    • If you are not sure if an introduction is necessary and you’ve contacted the recipient before, but you’re not sure if they remember you, you can leave your credentials in your email signature.
  3. Identify yourself right away. Stating your name and formal title or position will help the recipient tell who the message is from without the need for guesswork. This is especially important if you’re writing to someone you’ve never met. Even if your name is contained in your work email address, letting the other person know who you are is a common courtesy.[9]
    Write a Professional Email Step 9 Version 2.jpg
    • Pique your recipient’s interest by highlighting a common connection or shared experience (“We met at the annual Women as Leaders conference in Toronto last year”).[10]
    • It’s alright to skip the introduction if you’re already acquainted with the person you’re writing.
  4. Thank the recipient briefly. Your reader is a busy person, so acknowledging them for taking the time to read your email is a gracious gesture. Additionally, this will be your first opportunity to inform them of your reason for writing. “Thank you for considering my research grant proposal” sets a friendly tone while telling the recipient what they need to know.[11]
    Write a Professional Email Step 10 Version 2.jpg
    • Beginning an email by expressing your appreciation also demonstrates respect, which can keep the message from coming across as cold or impersonal.
  5. State the reason for your email. If you are initiating the line of communication, you are responsible for telling your recipients what the email is regarding. It is important to state your purpose early. Business associates will want to be able to read your email quickly and get to the point. Take a minute to ask yourself why you are writing it and why you need your recipient to see it. This will help you avoid idle chitchat and cut right to the chase for a more professional email. This is also a good time to ask yourself: “Is this email really necessary?” Again, only sending emails that are absolutely necessary shows respect for the person you’re emailing. Once you are ready to compose your email, try starting with something like:
    Write a Professional Email Step 11 Version 2.jpg
    • “I am writing to inquire about …”
    • “I am writing in reference to …”
    • “Please take the time to look over these changes and offer me your feedback…”
  6. Thank the recipient (optional). If you are replying to a client’s inquiry, or if someone has replied to one of your emails, you should begin with a line of thanks.[12] For example:
    Write a Professional Email Step 12 Version 2.jpg
    • “Thank you for getting back to me…”
    • “Thank you for your attention on this matter…”
    • “Thank you for contacting Ocean Safari Scuba…”
    • Thanking the reader is a great way to remain polite, professional, and on good terms with your recipient.
  7. Keep the body of your email brief. With business emails, the less you include the better. Make each email you send out just about one thing. If you need to communicate about another project, compose another email.
    Write a Professional Email Step 13 Version 2.jpg
    • Try communicating everything you need to in just five sentences. Say everything you need to say, and no more. Sometimes it will be impossible to limit your email to just five sentences. Don’t worry if you need to include more information.
    • In the body of your email, include all relevant information and anything you may require from your recipients.
  8. Include a call to action (optional). If you need your recipient to do something, don’t just assume they will know what to do or when. Help them out by clearly outline what you need. Say something like:
    Write a Professional Email Step 14 Version 2.jpg
    • “Could you send me those files by Thursday?”
    • “Could you write that up in the next two weeks?”
    • “Please write to Thomas about this, and let me know when you’ve done so.”
    • Structuring your request as a question encourages a reply. You can say, “Let me know when you have done that.”
  9. Tell the recipient how you expect them to follow up. Now that you’ve offered a call to action, give your reader a nudge in the right direction. A request to look over a financial report, for instance, might be accompanied by an entreaty like “let me know what you think of these numbers.” That way, the other party won’t be left wondering what to do with the information they’ve been given.[13]
    Write a Professional Email Step 15 Version 2.jpg
    • Offering a definite time frame in which you’d like to hear back (“it would be ideal if we could have these documents organized before the meeting on Thursday”) may ensure a swifter response.
    • Try to reply to important emails within 24 hours.[14]
  10. Add your closing. To keep your emails professional, end your email with another thank you to your reader or a formal goodbye such as:
    Write a Professional Email Step 16 Version 2.jpg
    • “Thank you for your patience and cooperation”
    • “Thank you for your consideration”
    • “If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to let me know”
    • “I look forward to hearing from you”
    • End your email with a proper closing before your name, like “Best regards” or “Sincerely”
    • Avoid casual closings like “Cheers” unless you are good friends with the reader, as these types of closings are less professional.
  11. Sign your name. In a professional email, your signature should include the following:[15]
    Write a Professional Email Step 17 Version 2.jpg
    • Your name.
    • Your job title.
    • A link to your website.
    • Links to social media accounts (optional).
    • Necessary contact information.
  12. Sign off with a custom signature. The signature at the bottom of the email should offer the recipient all the information they need about who you are so that there’s no need to introduce yourself at length within the message. Be sure to include your full name, the name of your company, your title or position, your preferred email address and a phone number at which you can be reached directly.
    Write a Professional Email Step 18 Version 2.jpg
    • To save yourself some trouble, save your custom signature in whatever email platform you use so that it will be displayed automatically in future messages.[16]
    • Providing links to your social media accounts will give unfamiliar contacts a more complete picture of you.[17]
    • Don’t bog down your signature with unnecessary details, quotes or graphics.[18]

[Edit]Delivering Email Professionality

  1. Maintain a professional tone. When sending business emails, it’s important to be especially mindful of the language you employ to avoid confusion or misinterpretation. In general, you shouldn’t say anything in an email to your boss or coworkers that you wouldn’t say to them in person. Your words should always be calm, polite and congenial, even in situations where you don’t feel that way yourself.[19]
    Write a Professional Email Step 19.jpg
    • Once you’ve written your email, read it back to yourself to determine whether you’ve captured the right tone.
    • Though it should go without saying, refrain from using any type of slang or profanity.
    • While humor is often a valuable quality in the workplace, work-related emails are usually not the right vehicle for it.[20]
  2. Present the most important information first. As previously mentioned, you should assume that your recipient has a lot on their plate and make an effort not to take up too much of their time. After thanking them for their attention, get straight to the point. Don’t mince words or feel the need to come up with an overly detailed introduction. Unlike more casual methods of correspondence, professional emails should be polite yet direct.[21]
    Write a Professional Email Step 20.jpg
    • Try an introductory sentence like “I’m writing to inform you that your membership has expired and needs to be renewed in person before you can continue receiving member benefits.” You can then follow up with whatever pertinent details the recipient needs in order to take action.
    • Most people tend to scan emails rather than reading each and every word. The nearer your main objective is to the beginning, the more likely your recipient is to pick up on it.[22]
  3. Keep the rest of the message concise. There’s no sense in rambling aimlessly once you’ve stated your purpose. With the space you have remaining, provide any other details that you think are worth mentioning. Always use short, simple words and phrases to take as much of the work out of interpreting your meaning as possible.[23]
    Write a Professional Email Step 21.jpg
    • Observe the “five sentence rule”—messages shorter than five sentences may come off as brisk or rude, whereas anything longer than five sentences puts you in danger of losing your reader’s attention.[24]
    • If for some reason you have to include a large amount of information, do it as a separate attachment.
  4. Convey a clear idea or request. Once you’ve stated your reason for writing, articulate to your reader exactly how you’d like for them to respond. If there’s something they need to know, tell them; if there’s something they need to do, ask them. By the time they finish reading your message, your recipient should be ready to formulate a response.[25]
    Write a Professional Email Step 22.jpg
    • Experienced communicators refer to this as a “call to action,” and it’s a good way to ensure that your dialogue maintains a distinct sense of purpose.[26]
    • A call to action in a professional email might say something like “it’s important that you memorize the security clearance number provided with this email” or “please update your summer availability by the end of the month.”
  5. Limit your email to a single topic. Confronting your recipient with too much information at once can leave them feeling overwhelmed. It’s best to limit the scope of your email to one or two relevant subjects. Not only will this allow the reader to understand what’s going on much faster, it will also help you keep your message succinct.[27]
    Write a Professional Email Step 23.jpg
    • Multiple topics or requests should be reserved for multiple emails.

[Edit]Sending the Email

  1. Proofread your email before sending it. Go back over your message thoroughly to make sure it’s free of any typos, misspellings or unclear sentences. Careless mistakes can reflect poorly on you and the company you represent.[28]
    Write a Professional Email Step 24.jpg
    • Use your email platform’s spell-checker feature to avoid accidental oversights.
    • You can also take this time to make any last minute changes to the formatting that you think may make your email easier to digest.[29]
  2. Simplify your email if possible. Remember, your recipients are busy and they want to get to the meat of the email quick.[30] Take a step back and evaluate your email. Here are some things to consider:
    Write a Professional Email Step 25.jpg
    • Use short sentences, words, and paragraphs. This helps make the email quick and easy to read and understand.
    • If it’s possible to cut a word out, cut it out. Trim your sentences down to as short as possible.
  3. Give your email a thorough proofreading. Professional emails require careful proofreading. Read your email aloud to yourself. This can help you catch a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes. Ask yourself:
    Write a Professional Email Step 26.jpg
    • Is my email clear?
    • Could my email be misunderstood?
    • How would it sound if I were the recipient?
  4. Keep it professional. You don’t need to show your personality in your professional email. If you’d like, you can let it show subtly through your writing style, but stay away from emoticons, chat abbreviations (such as LOL), or colorful fonts and backgrounds.[31]
    Write a Professional Email Step 27.jpg
    • The only time it is appropriate to use emoticons or chat abbreviations is when you’re mirroring the email language of the person you’re writing to.
    • Write like you speak. This can help you keep your email short, friendly, and personable.
    • Don’t say anything in an email that you wouldn’t say to your recipient in person.
  5. Send your email. Once you have proofread you email and have included all the necessary information and added each recipient to the appropriate field, click the send button.

[Edit]Tips

  • Remember, people want to read emails quickly, so keep your sentences short and clear.
  • If you can say something positive about your recipient or their work, do so. Your words won’t be wasted.
  • Set up a signature. It’s a shorthand way of sharing information that you should include in every email. By putting this information in your signature, you keep the body of your emails short.
  • If the recipient has helped you in any way, remember to thank them. You should do this even when it’s their job to help you.
  • Want to get better at writing emails? Try writing your message as if it will be forwarded to the CEO. This helps you keep your tone and language consistent and professional.
  • Pay careful attention to grammar, spelling, and punctuation so that you present a professional image of yourself and your company.
  • Keep introductions brief by writing them as if you were speaking face-to-face.
  • Take a moment to determine whether an email is even necessary before you set about writing one. In many cases, the same information can be relayed with a simple phone call or a short walk to another department.
  • Don’t forget to say “please” and “thank you.” Manners go a long way in forging good professional relationships.
  • Wait until after you’ve finished proofreading to put in the recipient’s address. This will prevent you from accidentally sending the email before it’s completed.
  • Writing effective emails is like anything else. The more you practice, the better at it you’ll get.

[Edit]Warnings

  • Be careful with the Cc field. If you are emailing tons of contacts who don’t know each other but all need to know the information, make sure to use the Bcc field to protect their privacy.
  • Use the Reply to All option sparingly. Only send your response to those who need to know.
  • Avoid using informal text slang or abbreviations (“LOL,” “ICYMI,” “TTYL,” etc.). These can be confusing to readers to and have no place in a work-related email.
  • Don’t type your message in all caps or lowercase letters.

How to Send Large Files Through Outlook

Whether you’re sending email in the desktop version of Outlook or through Outlook.com, you’ll run into size limits when trying to attach large files. Outlook won’t allow you to send a message that’s larger than 20 MB through web-based email servers like Outlook.com or Gmail, or larger than 10 MB when sending through an Exchange server. So what happens when you need to get a large file to someone right away? You can still send the file by first uploading it to OneDrive. Or, if you’re trying to send photos that are too large through the desktop version of Outlook, you can also use Outlook’s image size reducer to shrink them. A third way is to compress the file(s) into a ZIP file, which will usually reduce its size.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Uploading to OneDrive

  1. Sign in to https://www.onedrive.com. Because email servers limit the size of attachments, you’ll want to upload your file to cloud service and then include a link to the file in your email message.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 1.jpg
    • You get 5 GB of space on OneDrive for free with a free Microsoft account. If you subscribe to Microsoft 365, you’ll have 1TB of space, and can upload files up to 250 GB.
    • If you’d prefer, you can use a different cloud drive service, such as Dropbox or iCloud, instead of OneDrive.
  2. Click the button. It’s at the top of your file list. A menu will expand.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 2.jpg
  3. Click on the menu. This opens your computer’s file browser.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 3.jpg
  4. Select the large file and click . This uploads the file to OneDrive. You can watch the progress at the top-right corner of OneDrive.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 4.jpg
  5. Select the uploaded file and click . You’ll see this at the top-left corner of the file list.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 5.jpg
  6. Click . This saves a direct link to the large file to your computer’s clipboard.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 6.jpg
  7. Paste the file into the email message in Outlook. Whether you’re using Outlook.com on the web or the Outlook app on your computer, you can paste the URL you copied into the body of the message. Just right-click the location in the message where you want to insert the link and select Paste.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 7.jpg
  8. Send the message. When the recipient receives the message, they’ll be able to download the large file by clicking the link you included.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 8.jpg

[Edit]Reducing Image Size in Outlook 365

  1. Attach the large photo(s) to your email message in Outlook. If you’re using the Outlook application on your computer and want to share large photos, you can tell Outlook to make the images smaller when sending.[1]
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 9.jpg
    • To attach files in an Outlook message, click the paperclip icon at the top of the new message, select Browse This PC, choose the file(s), and then click Open.
  2. Click the menu and select . The File menu that you need to click is the one that’s on the new message, not the one at the top of Outlook. You’ll see an Info menu option at the top of the File menu when expanded.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 10.jpg
  3. Select . It’s the first option in the yellow box under “Image Attachments.”
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 11.jpg
  4. Click the back button to return to your email message. Now that you’ve told Outlook to reduce the size of the attached image(s), you should be able to send the message without error.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 12.jpg
    • If you can’t get the images small enough to send this way, send multiple email messages with a few images attached to each, or upload them to OneDrive instead.

[Edit]Compressing Files Before Sending

  1. Open File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac). If you’re trying to send a file (or group of files) that are too large to attach to an email, you may be able to reduce the size of the file by compressing it into a ZIP file. The recipient can then unzip the file to view what’s inside.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 13.jpg
    • To open File Explorer for Windows, click the folder icon in the taskbar, or press Windows key + E.
    • To open Finder for macOS, click the two-toned smiley face icon on the Dock.
    • Some mail servers won’t allow you to attach a ZIP File to an email. If you get an error about attaching a ZIP file, try using OneDrive instead.
  2. Go to the folder where you’ve saved the large file(s). For example, if your large files are photos, you can open your Photos or Pictures folder.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 14.jpg
    • Compressing files that are already in compressed formats, such as MP3, JPG, or MP4, will typically not reduce the file size by much. This method will work best for uncompressed files such as large Adobe documents, uncompressed video, and images in the RAW format.
  3. Select the file(s) you want to compress. To select multiple files, hold down the Control (PC) or Command (Mac) key as you click each file.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 15.jpg
  4. Add the selected file(s) to a compressed ZIP file. The steps are a little different depending on your operating system:
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 16.jpg
    • Windows: Right-click the selected file(s), choose Send to on the menu, and then select Compressed (zipped) folder.
    • macOS: Press Control as you click the selected file(s) and choose Compress from the menu.
  5. Check the size of the new ZIP file. Once you compress the files into a ZIP, a new file ending with the “.zip” extension will appear in the same folder you’re in. You’ll want to make sure it’s fewer than 10 MB if you’re sending it through an Exchange server, or 20 MB if sending through most other types of mail servers. Here’s how to check its size:
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 17.jpg
    • Click the file ending with .ZIP once to select it.
    • If you’re using a Mac, click the File menu and select Get Summary Info.
    • If you’re using Windows, right-click the file and select Properties.
  6. Attach the ZIP file to an email in Outlook. You can do this using the desktop version of Outlook or Outlook.com on the web. Just click the paperclip icon at the top of the message, select Browse this Computer or Browse this PC, choose the file, and then click Open. If the file is smaller than the maximum, the message will send as normal.
    Send Large Files Through Outlook Step 18.jpg
    • If you’re still unable to send the message after compressing the file, or Outlook won’t let you attach a ZIP file to an email, you could try uploading the file to OneDrive or another cloud drive instead.

How to Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App

Did you just get a shipping notification from Amazon only to realize that you meant to cancel the order? This wikiHow article will teach you how to cancel an Amazon order that’s already shipped using the Amazon app. Don’t worry — it’s simple and can be done in a few quick steps. Make sure you have the Amazon app downloaded on your iPhone or Android, then let’s get started.

[Edit]Steps

  1. Open your Amazon app. You can cancel an Amazon order that has already been shipped straight from your mobile device. Open your Amazon app to get started.

    Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App Step 3.jpg
  4. Tap “Request cancellation.” If your order has already been dispatched, you cannot automatically cancel it. Instead, you must request cancellation.
    Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App Step 4.jpg
    • While Amazon does not technically guarantee that your request will be approved, you are likely to receive a refund as long as you provide a reason for your request.
    • If you are attempting to cancel an order that has not yet shipped, you will be offered “Cancel Item” as an option, and can simply tap that to complete your cancellation and receive a refund. [1]
  5. Choose a cancellation reason from the drop-down menu. Amazon does not require a reason for cancellation, but providing a reason ensures that your request will be approved. Amazon’s menu of options covers just about every reason you might want to cancel, such as an incorrect shipping address or the item being too expensive.
    Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App Step 5.jpg
    • The “Request cancellation” list will include any incomplete orders, so be sure to check the box next to any items for which you want to request cancellation. [2]
  6. Confirm your request for cancellation. Once you have chosen a reason for cancellation, you can click the big yellow button beneath it.
    Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App Step 6.jpg
  7. Wait for your refund. Amazon will make a decision on your request almost immediately, and will refund the cost of your order to your original form of payment. The processing speed of your reimbursement depends upon what form of payment you used.
    Cancel an Amazon Order After It Ships Using the App Step 7.jpg
    • If you still receive your order in the mail, be sure to refuse it. If you still accept the order, Amazon may not approve your request.
    • If you ordered an item on Amazon from a third-party seller, your request for cancellation may take a bit longer to review. The decision to accept the cancellation must be made by the seller, and not Amazon. [3]

How to Find New Friends on Twitter

Making friends on social media can seem overwhelming, but Twitter’s a great place for you to start. With all the different conversations and topics popping up, you’ll be able to find people who share your interests and are down to connect. Read on for our guide on engaging with Twitter to make friends and navigating Twitter’s features to find like-minded people to follow.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Making New Friends through Twitter Engagement

  1. Set up an interesting profile to show that you’re a fun (and real) person. Click the silhouette icon and hit “edit profile.” Upload a profile picture or avatar that represents you or the content you’d like to post. Add a brief bio that will tell potential friends what you do, who you are, and maybe even where you’re from.[1] Check out these sample bios:
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 1 Version 2.jpg
    • Talk about your work and interests: “Stand up comic by night. Sit down office worker by day. Austin TX.”
    • List out a few of your defining characteristics: “Food blogger, ethical-sourcing specialist, mom to two werewolves, allergic to mushrooms.”
    • Keep it simple and professional: “Journalist/Traveler. MFA. Writes for The News Source. Former Fulbright Scholar.”
  2. Post consistently and creatively. Tweet about your interests so other people can find you. Ask “how can I add value?” to the conversation. When you’ve got a great tweet or piece of content, pin it to the top of your feed so users who come to check you out can see it.[2]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 2 Version 2.jpg
    • Add visuals to your tweets to increase their appeal.[3]
    • Post at least 3 times per day, but aim for quality over quantity.[4]
  3. Reach out to other people by liking, replying, retweeting content, and mentioning users. Interact with posts both by people you’d like to befriend and posts by celebrities or influencers who are part of a community you like. By engaging with content you like, Twitter’s algorithm will start to expose you to more of it (and in turn, expose you to potential friends).[5] Here’s a strategy for engaging with a post from a potential friend that goes a step beyond just retweeting:[6]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • Scroll through their feed and find a tweet about something they like or their off-platform content (like a personal blog).
    • Grab a quote from something they’ve mentioned or copy the URL of the site.
    • Tweet the quote or URL and mention the person (by using @ and their username) and say “thanks!”
  4. Turn on notifications to be able to reply fast. As soon as someone mentions you or your favorite celebrity posts, reply to their post. That way the person who posted will see you’re engaging with their material. As a bonus, your post will get more views and traffic since it’ll kick off the discussion.[7]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 4 Version 2.jpg
  5. Reach out via DM to make a connection. Ask a question or give a compliment to start a conversation. To send a DM, click on the mail icon and click “new message.” Then, fill in the handle for the user you’re trying to reach.[8] Check out these sample DMs:[9]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 5 Version 2.jpg
    • “Thanks for sharing that fan art. You really captured the essence of the series. How’d you come up with that idea?”
    • “Loved that article on gratitude. Where do you find stuff like that?”
  6. Join a Twitter chat to meet like-minded friends. Participate when a business or celebrity you like hosts a Twitter chat. Twitter chats occur at a specific time and use a designated hashtag so participants can keep up with the conversation. To join in, write out a tweet and include the hashtag the company/celebrity tells you to use. As the conversation flows, look out for users who make funny or interesting points that capture your attention. Then, either follow them or reply to let them know you like their content.[10]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 6 Version 2.jpg
  7. Put your Twitter handle in your other social media profiles. Then, join Facebook or LinkedIn groups that are relevant to content you like and topics you’re interested in. People will be able to follow you on Twitter as well as the original platform.[11]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 7 Version 2.jpg

[Edit]Finding People to Follow

  1. Use Twitter’s “Who to follow” tab. Click this tab on your profile page or home timeline. While the tab will often start with celebrities, Twitter will keep adjusting follow recommendations based on who you choose to follow. As an extension of this feature, Twitter will email you suggestions of who to follow.[12] Take a look at their profiles and posts to see if you might be interested in befriending them!
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 8 Version 2.jpg
  2. Check other people’s Following/Follower tabs. This method lets you find common ground through the people you follow. Pick an influencer or friend and click on their profile. Then click “Followers” or “Following” to see who else they’re connected to. Scroll through and follow bios that look interesting to you.[13]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 9 Version 2.jpg
  3. Try the Explore tab to find friends by topic. Scrolling through “For You” content allows you to find people with similar interests. Hit the icon shaped like a hashtag to access the Explore tab. Scroll through the “For You” posts or category posts (like trending, news, sports, and entertainment) to find interesting people you’d like to follow. As you engage with the content and other users more, Twitter will tailor the Explore page to your interests.[14]

  4. Use hashtags to find friends with specific interests. Type a hashtag related to your interests into the Explore tab search bar. Using a hashtag instead of a general topic tab enables you to look for people who are talking about really niche interests, keywords, or timely/trending topics. Include hashtags in your posts so that other people searching for that topic can find what you’re saying. Try not to use more than 2 hashtags per tweet, and remember hashtags can’t include spaces.[15]

    • Type a topic like “#indiemusic” or “#collegebasketball” into the search bar at the top of the Explore page.
    • Click a hashtag on a tweet to explore other tweets with that hashtag.
    • Type a hashtag for an upcoming event to find other people who might be going, too.
  5. Use Twitter’s Lists feature to browse groups of people. Lists allow you to subscribe to a set of people in order to see those posts together in your feed without having to follow all of them.[16] Find Lists of interesting people through the “Discover new lists” prompt or check out other people’s Lists in their profile.[17]
    Find New Friends on Twitter Step 12 Version 2.jpg
  6. Sync your contacts to see if people you know are on Twitter. Adding your address book lets you see what people you know are tweeting. If you’re on a computer, from Twitter’s home page, click “More,” then click “Settings and privacy.” If you’re using the app, click your profile icon and then “Settings and privacy.” Next, go to “Privacy and safety.” Find the “Discoverability” option and follow the prompts to let Twitter access your contacts.[18]

How to Save Paper

Trees are an essential part of the planet’s ecosystem, they provide oxygen, clean the air, provide shade and food, and they’re used as homes by many different creatures. To create paper and other wood products, millions of new trees must be planted each year. Even so, logging can be very destructive to the environment if it pollutes nearby water, leads to soil erosion, contributes to habitat loss, and uses a great deal of energy. To help reduce logging, there are many things you can do at home, school, and work to cut down on paper consumption.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Finding Paper Substitutes

  1. Use reusable cloths instead of paper products. Around the house, a lot of paper is wasted every year on things like paper towels and napkins. And if you’re using lots of paper products for cleaning, drying, and wiping your nose, you can save plenty of trees by switching to reusable versions.[1]
    Save Paper Step 9.jpg
    • To replace paper towels in the kitchen and bathroom, use tea towels to dry dishes, old rags to clean, and sponges to wipe up spills.
    • To replace facial tissues, invest in a few handkerchiefs that can be washed and reused.
    • To replace napkins at the dinner table, purchase cloth napkins instead, which can be washed and reused as well.
  2. Use real dinnerware instead of paper. Paper plates and dishes may be convenient, but they aren’t good for the environment. Most paper plates just end up in the trash, meaning the paper isn’t even recycled properly. When you have a party or any time the paper plates come out, ask to use the real dinnerware instead.
    Save Paper Step 10.jpg
    • If your family likes to go on picnics or camping trips, invest in reusable plastic dinnerware. You can get plates, bowls, cups, and utensils that are durable, unbreakable, reusable, and not made from paper.
  3. Use paper from other plant sources. There are times when it’s simply not possible to avoid paper-like products. Luckily, there are tree-free paper products available that are made from alternative plant sources, and many of these have a lower impact on the environment.
    Save Paper Step 11.jpg
    • Hemp is a versatile plant that grows much faster than a tree and produces more fiber. Hemp can be turned into fabric, writing paper, greeting cards, envelopes, and other paper products.
    • Bamboo is another fast-growing species of plant that can be used for alternative paper products. You can find bamboo bathroom tissue, paper, towels, and even disposable dinnerware.
  4. Bring your own thermos or reusable mug to cafes. Disposable paper cups from cafes and restaurants are another way that lots of paper is wasted every year. Like paper plates, many paper cups end up in the trash because they are not recyclable (they are usually coated with plastic; in the case of uncoated paper cups, they are soiled with liquid).
    Save Paper Step 12.jpg
    • Any time you go to a restaurant or cafe for a takeout drink, take a reusable coffee mug or thermos with you for coffee, hot chocolate, or other warm beverages.
  5. Use reusable grocery and lunch bags. Many grocery stores provide paper bags to pack groceries. You can help your family save paper by investing in reusable grocery bags. Similarly, if your lunches are normally packed in paper bags, ask about switching to a reusable lunch bag instead.
    Save Paper Step 13.jpg
    • If your family is hesitant about switching, ask them to consider how much money they spend on paper bags and grocery bags every year. Then, compare that to the one-time cost of reusable bags.
  6. Send e-cards. Lots of people like to send greeting cards for birthdays, holidays, and other events, and this leads to plenty of paper waste. Not only is the card itself paper, but it’s also sent in a paper envelope. Instead of sending paper greeting cards to all your friends and family in the mail, send electronic greeting cards for future celebrations.
    Save Paper Step 14.jpg
    • There are lots of e-card services out there that allow you to personalize designs, messages, and graphics to suit your taste and the type of celebration.
    • E-cards are also great for sending out invitations to parties, weddings, and other events.
  7. Read e-books or library books. Books are great resources for school and work projects, and they’re great to read as a leisure activity. But printed books are still made with paper, so you can save paper by using public versions of books that are available at the library, or by reading electronic copies instead.
    Save Paper Step 15.jpg
    • Buying used books is also a good idea, because you’re reusing something that’s already been printed.
  8. Use computers instead of notebooks for school and work. School and work notebooks are a great way to keep track of things you’re supposed to learn and projects you’re working on, but you can save paper by keeping electronic notes instead. That way, you don’t have to rely on paper notebooks, and you can always have your notes saved to your computer.
    Save Paper Step 16.jpg
    • If you’re in school, ask your teacher if it’s OK that you take notes on a computer or laptop instead of in a notebook.

[Edit]Cutting Down on Paper Products

  1. Don’t use products that come with excessive packaging. One of the biggest culprits for creating paper waste is consumer packaging that’s used to wrap and label food, toys, clothes, and other goods. To help save paper, buy products that have been made with minimal or no packaging.
    Save Paper Step 1.jpg
    • Many of today’s consumer items are wrapped multiple times, such as a candy that comes in an individual wrapper, within a bag that’s also placed inside a box. Instead, look for packaging that has a sticker instead of a full box, for instance, or a tag instead of an entire container. Similarly, buy items that haven’t been wrapped multiple times.
    • Buying in bulk is a good way to reduce paper waste from packaging. Next time you or your family go shopping, make sure you take reusable bags and buy what you can in bulk.
  2. Dine in instead of using takeout containers at restaurants. Another large contributor to paper waste is takeout food containers, which are often made of paper products or packed in paper bags. Next time you and your family decide to eat out for a meal, request that you sit down in the restaurant instead of taking the food in to-go containers.
    Save Paper Step 3.jpg
    • Most fast food restaurants use paper products to individually wrap all food, so ask your family if you can eat at a conventional sit-down restaurant for your next night out.
  3. Be selective about what you print. At home, at school, and work, you can save paper by cutting down on the amount of material you print off. Before you print anything, ask yourself if you really need a paper copy, and only print something if you must.
    Save Paper Step 4.jpg
    • When you do need to print something off, reduce the font, increase the margins, and print on both sides of the paper so the project can be printed on fewer pieces of paper.[2]
    • If teachers and employers require that you hand in paper copies of projects and assignments, ask if you can instead submit them electronically.
    • Before you print off an assignment, letter, or personal project, proofread it on the computer so you don’t have to print off a second draft.
  4. Send, receive, and store electronic records instead of paper copies. Most documents these days can be shared and stored electronically, meaning you don’t have to print off paper copies for your records. For instance, if you need a copy of an electronic document, request that it be sent to you by email.
    Save Paper Step 5.jpg
    • For sensitive documents that shouldn’t be emailed, ask if you can save a copy directly to a flash drive.
    • In the case where an original paper copy already exists and you need a record for your files, scan a version to your computer instead of making a photocopy.[3]
    • When you need to provide copies of documents to friends, family, teachers, or people at work, ask if you can transmit files electronically using sharing services, email, or other electronic methods.
  5. Opt for paperless communications. Many companies and organizations offer electronic correspondences that can replace paper copies they traditionally send in the mail.[4] Whenever possible, sign up for paperless communications for items like:
    Save Paper Step 6.jpg
    • Bills
    • Newsletters
    • Monthly mailings
    • Flyers and coupons
    • Newspaper and magazine subscriptions
  6. Use electronic calendars and day timers. There are plenty of free calendars and schedulers available online that you can use to plan your days, keep track of dates and assignments, and schedule meetings and interviews. By using an electronic calendar, you can save the paper that would have been used on a calendar, organizer, journal, or other type of scheduler.
    Save Paper Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • Both Google and Apple provide free calendar products.
    • There are also plenty of calendar apps that you can use on smartphones or tablets.
  7. Encourage others to save paper. To have an even bigger impact, you can also encourage friends, family, classmates, and coworkers to save paper as well. One of the best ways to reach the most people is to put up signs around the house, school, or office that inform people how they can help.
    Save Paper Step 8.jpg
    • There are lots of signs that you can print off from the internet that will help raise awareness about the importance of saving trees. The WWF has signs you can download and print.
    • Make sure you print or draw your signs on reused paper (like the back of an old assignment).
    • Trash containers and recycling bins are a great place for signs.

[Edit]Recycling and Reusing Paper

  1. Buy recycled paper products. There are paper products available that are made with recycled paper, which means that no new trees were cut down to make those products. When you do need to buy paper products, look for things that were made with “post-consumer waste,” including:
    Save Paper Step 17.jpg
    • Bathroom tissues
    • Printing paper
    • Greeting cards
    • Paper bags
  2. Use both sides of a piece of paper. When you do have to print or write things down on paper, make sure you get the most out of that paper by writing on both sides. If you currently only use one side of each piece, you can cut down on paper use by half just by using the other side too![5]
    Save Paper Step 18.jpg
    • If you only end up using one side of a piece of paper, you could consider using the back for mathematical calculations or sketches.
    • Writing or printing in a smaller size or font will also help you cut down on the amount of paper you need for notes and projects.
    • When writing in notebooks, always fill the pages without skipping lines (unless instructed to do so), and don’t start a fresh book until you’ve filled all the pages.
  3. Reuse gift bags, wrapping paper, newspaper, and tissue. Everybody loves a well-wrapped gift, but that doesn’t mean you have to use brand new wrapping paper for every gift you give. Instead, when you get a gift, keep the bag or wrapping paper it came in so that you can use it again for another gift.
    Save Paper Step 19.jpg
    • Newspaper can also be repurposed as an eco-friendly wrapping paper or tissue paper to stuff a gift bag.[6]
  4. Turn old paper products into crafts. There are plenty of crafts that require paper, so instead of using fresh sheets, why not reuse old paper that was already bound for the recycler. You can use old newspapers, notes, cards, and other paper to make things like:[7]
    Save Paper Step 20.jpg
  5. Recycle paper you can’t reuse. When you do have paper that you can’t reuse or repurpose, make sure you recycle it instead of throwing it in the trash. Paper that goes in the garbage just ends up in a landfill. But paper that goes into the recycling bin can be sent to a special facility and turned into something new.
    Save Paper Step 21.jpg

[Edit]Tips

  • Write on paper in pencil instead of pen. This way, you can erase what you write if you need to, instead of having to get a new piece of paper.

[Edit]Expert Advice

  • Boost your impact by reducing paper usage. Recycling is great but the paper you recycle still had to be processed, which causes emissions. Reducing your paper consumption is much more effective for going green. Try to cut down on paper usage as much as you can to have an even larger, more positive environmental impact!
  • Choose reusable products over disposable paper ones. Disposing of waste, even if it is recycled, can have high energy costs. For example, instead of asking for paper bags instead of plastic bags at the grocery store, bring your own reusable cloth bags.
  • Use paper products as efficiently as possible. If you must use paper, make sure as little of it is going to waste as you can. This might mean printing double-sided or using crumpled-up sheets of used paper as a packing material. Plus, you should make sure that all of your paper products are made of 100% recycled materials.

How to Increase Website Traffic

At this point even the squirrel in your backyard probably runs a blog reviewing local bird feeders. To compete with that, you’ll need a site with high-quality content, a decent understanding of Google keywords, and long-term commitment. There are plenty of steps you can take today that make a big difference to website traffic. The best results, though, come to webmasters who put in the work, experiment with their marketing, and engage with their audience. You’ve got this!

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Content Creation

  1. Write attention-grabbing headlines. If the headline doesn’t get people to click, the rest of your content doesn’t matter. Spend at least 5 or 10 minutes brainstorming possible headlines before picking one that’s clear, specific, and catchy (without over-promising). Some of the most effective approaches involve numbers, popular search keywords, directly addressing the reader, or answering a question.[1]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 3 Version 2.jpg
    • For example, “11 Breakfasts To Cure Your Hangover” tells the reader exactly what to expect, addresses them directly, uses a popular search term, promises a solution to a problem, and includes a number.
    • You can use WordPress plugins or standalone tools to A/B test your headlines, running multiple versions to see how they perform. This is most useful once your site already has a fair amount of traffic, so you can gather data quickly.[2]
  2. Make your content authoritative. Stand out from lower-quality sites by creating content that relies on extensive research or expert knowledge. If you can, hire professional text or video editors to make your content more engaging and polished. These efforts will build your site’s reputation as an authoritative source, which helps you climb the search engine rankings.[3]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 1 Version 2.jpg
  3. Include some evergreen topics. It’s tempting to only cover trending topics, but it’s tough for an up-and-coming site to compete over these. A good strategy is to hedge your bets with some content that can keep attracting a steady flow of visitors for months or years. For example, write a research report on your industry or an authoritative guide to getting into your hobby.[4]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 3 Version 3.jpg
  4. Experiment with shareable formats. In the world of social media, shareable content is king—but that means different things on different platforms, and to different target audiences. Can you turn your content into infographics on LinkedIn? Memes on reddit? Until you try it, you won’t know what hits that viral sweet spot.[5]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 2 Version 2.jpg
    • Use your longer content as a source of raw material. That half-hour video tutorial probably has a dozen useful clips that you can share as standalone pieces of advice.[6]
    • You don’t have to condense every post down to a paragraph. Write long-form content if that’s a better fit for your topic, then brainstorm ways to package that info into bite-sized samples or headlines that you can share on places like Twitter.
  5. Ask visitors to comment and engage with your site. Active participation keeps site visitors returning. This can be as simple as asking readers to comment with their feedback or suggest new topics for you to cover. To really build a base of visitors, dovetail these “calls to action” into other marketing efforts. For instance, ask readers to sign up for your mailing list or join your webinar.[7]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 10 Version 2.jpg
    • Another option is to start a forum for your site’s community to gather together and discuss topics. Keep in mind that this requires at least one moderator.

[Edit]Technical SEO

  1. Research keywords in your topic area. If you want to tailor your content to attract visitors, it’s a huge help to find out what search terms they’re using. Try free services like Google Keyword Planner and Google Trends, and/or well-reviewed products like SEMrush, HyperSuggest, or Ahrefs. Use these tools to identify high-volume search terms that fit your website theme and your expertise.[8]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 6 Version 3.jpg
    • Once you’ve found some options, Google them and check out the top results. If you think you can make content that’s more engaging, accurate, or comprehensive than them, you’ve found a great opportunity.
  2. Look for “long tail” searches. It’s not all about the highest search volume. Aim for a mix of popular terms and more specific “long tail” searches. These have less competition and attract more invested visitors.[9]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 7 Version 3.jpg
    • If you’re selling products, prioritize high commercial intent keywords like “buy.”[10]
  3. Use keywords as signposts to relevant content. The purpose of keyword research is to identify popular topics that you can write about with authority. Make sure the keywords flow naturally within the text, or use them in headers that accurately describe your content. Avoid over-stuffing your site with popular keywords, especially irrelevant ones, since this can result in a very low search ranking.[11]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 5 Version 2.jpg
    • Ignore the outdated advice to stuff keywords into the <meta> “keyword” tag; Google has not looked at that for years.[12] Do include keywords in the meta “description” tag, as part of an informative summary for readers.[13]
  4. Help search bots with tags and metadata. Website owners can use meta tags and other HTML features to help search engines make sense of their site. Go through this checklist of best practices, and follow them either by editing your HTML directly or by using the features of your website creation service:[14]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 6 Version 2.jpg
    • Add a unique description tag to each page on your website. Make the description short enough to display in a Google search preview, include relevant keywords, and use natural-sounding language.
    • Organize your pages with other metadata as well: title tags, image file names, image “alt” descriptions, and link anchor text.
    • Use short, descriptive text whenever possible in these tags, as well as in URLs.
  5. Keep your site and each page well-organized. Organize your pages by topic, date posted, or some other logical system, and create a sitemap. Break larger pages down into sections with descriptive headers.[15]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 10 Version 3.jpg
    • Headers are a great place to put relevant keywords, but use them only as needed to help readers find what they’re looking for.
  6. Maximize search engine function with structured markup. This web code helps search engines display your info. For instance, you can use this to make sure Google correctly lists your product names and prices, your opening hours, or even the right recipe names for your cooking blog.[16]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 12 Version 2.jpg
    • If you’re feeling code-savvy, get started by copying the example code at https://developers.google.com/search/docs/guides/search-gallery, or by using the free Google Search Console service’s “Data Highlighter” feature. If this all sounds like gibberish to you, you can hire a web developer to set this up for you pretty quickly.

[Edit]Advertising and Social Media

  1. Make a social media plan for your site. At this point, social media marketing is its own career path, but you can get the ball rolling on your own if you can’t hire a professional. Research which social network is the most popular among your target audience, and start by building a fan base there. Post on a consistent schedule, and include posts that directly inform or entertain your audience, alongside posts that link to your site.[17]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 9 Version 2.jpg
    • Social networks have their own culture, and users are quick to mock people who don’t follow the right etiquette. If you’re not already embedded in the network you’re using, do some extra research on the “do’s and don’t’s” of that platform. For example, many Reddit communities have strict marketing rules and dislike people who market without first participating in some discussions.[18]
  2. Give other creators a reason to link to your site. Offer to write guest blogs, propose a collaboration with another creator, or ask a well-known user of your product to post a review. Backlinks from opportunities like these are incredibly important for traffic—not only do they attract visitors directly, they also puts your site higher in Google rankings.[19]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 7 Version 2.jpg
    • Go for quality over quantity: links from well-known sites with expert contributions are worth way more than links from tiny or low-quality sites.
    • If your website is pretty new, don’t be discouraged if people turn down your requests. Start by making connections with other creators, creating quality content, and linking to other people’s content that you find valuable. The best links will come after you build up some trust and respect.
    • Trading links with a professional contact or two is fine, but don’t go overboard or make deals with sites you’ve never heard of. If Google suspects you’re putting more effort into getting links than creating good content, your page ranking will suffer.[20]
  3. Post helpful content on forums and question-answering sites. If your website is based on your profession or hobby, join relevant communities on sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Reddit, or answer public questions on sites like Quora. Put in the time and effort to respond to questions and give helpful advice under your website name.[21]
    Increase Website Traffic Step 8 Version 2.jpg
    • Stay connected with other blogs that relate to yours. Leave comments on their posts and interact with the communities. Don’t advertise your site directly, but allow people to find their way to it via links on your profile or signature.
  4. Attract visitors with free materials. Who doesn’t like a freebie? When done right, they attract new visitors to your site and leave them wanting to return. To make this more effective, combine it with social media posts announcing the giveaway (maybe with an added chance at winning something bigger if you engage with the post).[22] Here are a few ideas:
    Increase Website Traffic Step 11 Version 2.jpg
    • Give away a free, short e-book.
    • Hold free online classes or seminars.
    • Give visitors a free entry into your contest or sweepstakes.
    • Let visitors download free software, or a free trial version of your product.
    • Offer free products to people who sign up to your email list, spend above a certain amount in your shop, etc.
  5. Pay for advertising on Google or Facebook. To get the most out of Google search ads (the links that appear next to search results), research affordable keyword searches that fit your site. If you’d rather promote your content directly in people’s feeds, look into Facebook, the other online advertising giant.[23]

    Increase Website Traffic Step 13 Version 2.jpg
    • Of course, there’s a reason Don Draper gets the big bucks. You could spend years learning how to run effective advertising campaigns, and no quick guide can identify the best approach for your business. Use tools like Google Analytics to track your ad engagement, and keep experimenting!
    • If you run a local business, don’t forget about the real world. Look into advertising options at local newspapers, business brochures, magazines, and signboards.

[Edit]Tips

  • A huge number of site visits today happen on smartphones, so the mobile experience on your site is very important if you want to keep traffic numbers high. Make a responsive website that adapts the CSS to the visitor’s device. (If you’re using a website-building service, double-check that it does this for you, or at least offers an option to create a mobile-friendly alternative layout.)[24]
  • You can hire people to create content for you, but it’s usually best to write it yourself: who better than you knows your own business, hobby, or club? If your team isn’t writing-savvy, you can hire an editor to help you come up with a writing plan and polish the quality of your work.
  • Don’t forget about your old content! If a post is still worthwhile, link back to it whenever the topic comes up in a new post. This helps new users find interesting articles from your backlog, and keeps people on your site for longer.

[Edit]Warnings

  • Don’t get caught up with website generators and internet tricks that claim to fool search engines or deliver instant website traffic. These rarely work and at best only give you short-lived results, before the search engine catches on and drops your ranking down to oblivion.
  • Most websites have some pages that aren’t helpful as search results—for instance, the pages used for shop checkout. Block these from showing up in search engines using your website creation service’s tools, or by adding “<meta name=”robots” content=”noindex”>” to your page’s HTML.[25] More advanced users can write instructions in a robots.txt file.[26]
