How can journalism inform your content creation decisions and engagement?

We recently wrote about using songwriting to guide and improve your content writing. Similarly, we can take a peek at journalism and how journalists create and tell stories people want to read.

  2. Simplify. Avoid the jargon, cut to the chase and make it easy to read.

  4. Don’t bury the lead. Get to the point.
