Why, How & Where Our Time Gets Lost at Work [Infographic]

Why-How-Where-Our-Time-Gets-Lost-at-Work

Why-How-Where-Our-Time-Gets-Lost-at-WorkThe average workday lasts about 8 hours. Since there are five workdays in a week, it follows that on average, we should be working 40 hours a week.

Interestingly, very few people work that many hours in a week. According to multiple studies, including one by HubSpot, 89% of workers admit to working less than eight hours a day. In the HubSpot study, for instance, a majority of respondents said they work for only about 5 hours every day, translating to approximately 25 hours a week. Put simply, the average worker is only productive for 3 out of the 5 weekdays!

Where do the other two days go?

There are a number of culprits here, with emails (43.5%) topping the list. The average C-Level staff receives 34 business emails per week. Since it takes 16 minutes to read, digest, and respond to an email, one is likely to spend over 9 hours on emails alone every week!

Unproductive meetings come second, accounting for 42.3% of time lost at work. On average, executives spend 7.75 hours on unproductive meetings every week. The other three main time-wasting activities at the workplace are:

  • Browsing online (21.8%)
  • Commuting (17.4%)
  • Procrastination (10%)

Put together; these activities can consume over 3 hours of your work time every day. If you want to be successful, find a way to minimize them.

How to Write a Perfect Blog Post

How To Write a Perfect Blog

 

How To Write a Perfect Blog

The blogging field is highly competitive. Every day there are more and more companies creating blogs on every topic thinkable, because of this it can be difficult to have your content stand out to readers. The best way to make sure that your article gets a reader’s attention is to optimize your posts to perfection.

Let’s take a look at how to write a perfect blog using this incredible infographic on how to write the perfect blog post found on SocialMarketingWriting.com

Have the perfect title

Titles must make a big impact on readers. It is the first (and sometimes only) thing they see that makes them decide if they want to read the article or not. Keeping this in mind, it’s a good idea to follow these four rules:

  1. 60 characters maximum
  2. Draw attention using negative words and/or numbers (i.e. 6 Reasons Your Business is Failing)
  3. Use a keyword in your title, and optimize it for SEO.
  4. Keep the URL short and include the optimized keyword.

Focus your content on reader interest and SEO

While titles make a big impact, the content is what’ll get a blog post found and shared. Catering to SEO will help your post be found by search engines. Then of course, if your content is engaging and interesting, a reader is more inclined to share it on social media and to read more of your posts.

  1. Longer posts (especially over 2,000 words) are better
  2. Have high-quality images
  3. Use keywords in both the post and Meta description.
  4. Adding links builds credibility.
  5. Connect with your reader – write your posts to be helpful or emotional. This makes the content interesting and worth sharing.
  6. Use a call to action at the end of the post (i.e. Contact us today for all your marketing needs!)

Keep them coming back for more

Even if your post is perfect it is still a challenge to get readers to come back to your site or to share your content. This is why it is imperative that you make it as easy as possible for them to do so. Try these 3 tricks to increase the chances of getting them back to your site.

  1. Add author bios to the end of each post
  2. Have a clearly visible option for them to subscribe
  3. Use share buttons for all major social media sites

Don’t leave anything behind

Ok so you know how to write a perfect blog, great, but that’s not the only thing that can drag down your engagement. It’s also important to give focus to social media and website design. Some of the most important things to consider include:

  1. Building social media followers
  2. Paying attention to analytics to learn what works best
  3. Have a clean website design
  4. Publishing posts at high traffic times

Rinse and repeat

Always remember that consistent quality content is the core of attracting and also, keeping readers. Use an optimized title to capture attention, make sharing and subscribing convenient for the reader, and finally, make sure the website is optimized and the article is shared to social media.
