Want to get more views? Here’s our UNIcq Team’s recommendations on how you can make your post more readable, and popular:
Recommended Styles and Titles of posts:
a. “How to” posts. Guides or instructions, preferably in bullet points on things relevant to an international student/affiliate in the U.S. E.g. “How to survive Winter in the US – a guide for the seriously Tropical” or “How to Recreate Authentic Ramen/Chicken Vindaloo/Sauerkraut in 30 seconds or less”
b. “Top 10 list” posts. It can be Top 20 or 30; Top 10 is just a suggestion. E.g. “Top 10 things you MUST buy in the U.S. before returning to your country” or “Top 20 U.S. travel spots for the budget conscious” or even “Top 5 tips on how to survive with a deranged room-mate”
c. “Opinion” posts. Share your thoughts and experiences as an international in the U.S, or as an aspiring student. No restrictions in topics – Be as funny, inspiring or emotional as you want to be. Blog about your last few weeks before graduation, the charming professor in American Literature 101 or your experience as a first-time mother in a foreign land.
We also warmly welcome students/alumni/educators to share their opinions on topics of global interest, such as environmental conferences, social advocacy and so on.
d. “Interviews” posts. Usually posted by the UNIcq team, featuring insightful interviews from experts/thought leaders relevant to our community. Please contact us if you wish us to interview a group or person who has inspired you and/or would make a positive impact on the UNIcq community.
