Checklist blog posts can be hugely valuable to your readers. You can help them remember everything they need to around a given subject.
For example, let’s say you’re in the photo industry. You could create a checklist blog post of everything that needs to be taken to a photoshoot.
Or maybe you’re a real estate agent. You could create a checklist of things a person needs to do to get their house ready to sell.
Or maybe you’re a fitness coach. You could create a checklist of all the exercises in a particular workout.
To create the perfect checklist, take a common task (such as selling a house) and break it down into much smaller sub-tasks. Just make sure that your checklist is thorough and complete.
Checklists also present you with a unique opportunity to build your email list. You can offer a downloadable, nicely formatted checklist that people can access in exchange for giving you their email address.
This method of email list building is often called offering a “content upgrade.” Your readers can “upgrade” the content they get from you (the downloadable checklist instead of just the blog post) in exchange for their email address.
