Length equals quality in content marketing, does it? The ideal blog post length

To answer this question. No, length doesn’t necessarily equal quality. But, could be length an indicator of quality in a good blog post? Perhaps.

In the last years, there has been a shift to longer content. One good example is when, in 2017, Twitter finally gave in and rewarded us with 240 characters.

The extraordinary copywriter’s checklist – 14 things to check before publishing a blog post.

If you follow these rules before publishing, you will move from being another blogger on the internet to that successful blogger you want to be.

I promise they are easy-to-apply rules.
