3. Solve a problem, drive an action
Be clear about your purpose! Understand your reader and why you are writing this piece, what problem are you trying to solve? Does it solve keyword intent? Does it drive action?

People don't have a lot of time, they want to get to the point. Are your facts accurate? Is your topic relevant and does it deliver what your title indicates it’s about?
