We all love lists. That’s why magazines are continually publishing articles like, “10 Ways To Lose That Stubborn Belly Fat,” and “5 Ways To Be Happier Now.” Lists are easy to quickly skim, allowing us to take in an entire subject in just a few moments.

Additionally, they make us feel like we’re taking in a lot of information in a short period of time. Nothing is quite so satisfying as skimming a list of 73 different items.

Finally, listicles make it easy to break down a more significant subject into smaller, more digestible pieces. It’s easy to read part of a listicle, stop, and then pick up where you left off.

You can take advantage of our love of lists in your blogging efforts. Write “listicles” in which you list a large number of items related to a particular subject.

For example:

● 27 Ways To Quickly Build Your Email List
● 9 Easy Ways To Generate Leads
● 7 Ways To Burn Fat and Get Shredded
● 19 Ways To Overcome The Fear of Speaking

Generally speaking, the more items you can include in your listicle, the more appealing it will be to readers. Bigger listicles can be more thoroughly cover a subject, making it seem more valuable to the readers.

So, for example, “101 Ways To Build Your Email List” will appeal more to readers than “27 Ways To Build Your Email List”.
