Some questions you should ask yourself when writing a blog post may include:

- What is my audience searching for?
- Why should people care about this topic?
- Does this help establish me as an expert on this topic?
- Is it interesting?
The reader should view this as valuable, educational material, and it can help establish your ENT practice as an ENT authority.
Always Include a Call to Action
You don’t just want people visiting your ENT blog - you want them to take action. If you write a blog post about one of your solutions to a common problem, it would benefit you to have them call your office or schedule an appointment. After they are engaged in the content you posted, they will be more inclined to take action if there is an easy way to act upon their interest.
We recommend every ENT provider has an active blog. It can be time-consuming to always come up with new content to write about - which is where Advice Media would be a great partner!
