Your headline/subject line is boring.

You published at the wrong time.

Your story is the wrong format.

Your story isn’t relevant.


Your headline/subject line is boring.


Maybe your headline already gives everything away so there’s no need for your audience to learn more.

Maybe it’s simply dull and doesn’t give readers a reason to care — even if the story is fantastic.


Solution: Re-read your story. Think about what’s most interesting in it.


You published at the wrong time.


Studies are looking at are large, general and don’t take into account your audience.


Solution: look at your existing analytics data. When do you see the biggest bumps of traffic? Identify those waves and ride them


Your story is the wrong format.


In a perfect world, you’d be able to be all things to all people and have multiple pieces of content for each target audience.


But time is against us, tough one. try to make sure you’re presenting content in the very best format for your audience.


If your piece is too long for your busy staff, make it shorter. If no one’s watching video, switch to written.


Your story isn’t relevant.


It happens to the best of us. Dust yourself off and try again.


learn what you can from it.


Why wasn’t it interesting to your target audiences?

Why was it important to your bosses that you create that piece?

Can you communicate to them the audience disconnect?


With the right attitude, you can turn a flop of a piece into a rich learning opportunity.
