The content should be value-packed. Your audience should be able to take away something from the piece. Become a storyteller and make everything as interesting as possible. But, you have to keep your audience in mind. If you are writing for young people, make it more engaging and catchy. For business professionals and CEOs, keep it formal and to the point.

A call to action is important. You can tell your audience to take action that would trigger feedback. Or it could be an action that would still keep them glued to your brand.
