Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
As far as the Search Engine Optimization goes, it will depend a bit on the platform you are creating your blog article in. Most platforms provide some type of feature to assist you with adding a proper meta title, meta description, optimizing for specific keywords without overuse, adding alt image tags and interlinking your content to other articles on your site.
A call-to-action is an invitation for a user to take some desired action. By saving the best for last, you can present this as a special offer, free estimate, coupon or some type of savings leaving them with the urge to act now! They now have the option to reach out via phone or contact form.
With all this being said, you can clearly see the many benefits of posting a blog article and writing it correctly, of course.
