A regular feature post is part of a collection of posts assigned to a reoccurring feature category. A popular regular feature increases both brand recognition and site subscriptions.

Headline: Combine your feature category name with your headline to brand your post: “Rick’s Tips: ….” or “One Minute Tips: …” “1031 Exchange of the Month…”

Intro: Ask the reader a question. Tell them how this post will offer a solution. Use a reoccurring catch phrase to enforce the brand.

Content:

  • Develop a “logo” style thumbnail for feature category.
  • Use a consistent visual styling for the posts in your feature category.
  • Keep the post similar in length and tone.

Conclusion: In addition to inviting readers to read more posts; invite readers to post on the same theme in their site with a link back to your original post.
