Sample - How To Post



Your “how to” blog post should teach the reader how to do something by breaking it down into a series of steps.

Begin your blog post by explaining what problem you are going to solve through your explanation and be sure to include any relevant keywords. Add in a personal story to establish your credibility on this topic. And make sure to end your blog post with a summary of what your reader will gain by following your lead.

Need some inspiration? Check out these "How-To" examples from the HubSpot blog:


Now deliver what you promised in the first section. This is the longest part of the post, so make it easy to read. Use short paragraphs, bullet lists, and bold headings to set different sections apart. 

Some common section headers include:

Step 1: Getting Started

Step 2: Do Your Background Research on…

Step 3: First Steps for…

Step 4: Analyze and Repeat

Step 5: Wrapping Up

You can use bulleted lists, numbered list, or multiple headings. Include as many steps, numbers, or bullets that will allow you to discuss your topic thoroughly.

Here are some pointers to make the best possible body of your blog:
  • Include visuals
  • Include short explanatory phrases in your headers
  • At the end, transition into your conclusion


Now it’s time to say goodbye and wrap up your post. Remind your readers of your key takeaway, reiterate what your readers need to do to get the desired result, and ask a question about how they see the topic to encourage comments and conversation. Don't forget to add a Call-to-Action to turn your blog post into a marketing machine!

Congratulations! What a lovely how-to post you've created.

Frequently Asked Question on Design

When are your designers available to meet with me?

Designers are available (mornings, afternoons and evenings) Monday through Saturday. Designers can meet with you at your home or at one of our showrooms.

Can I send a design I got from another company and have you quote it?

We’d be happy to give you a comparative quote. Please send the other company’s quote including your name, email address, home address and phone number to Be sure to include the design, including material specifications and dimensions and we will respond within 2 business days. We see these types of estimates as project starting points because we frequently recommend changes to designs received from competitors; we will need to send a designer to your home to ensure the best project outcome.  

How long will a design consultation take?

That depends on the project you are considering. We plan on a minimum of one hour, and sometimes more, to ensure our designer has time to measure the space(s) you are considering and discuss your preferences. Over the seven years we have spent perfecting our craft we have learned it doesn’t pay to rush. Give us a call at 800-450-1455 or CLICK HERE to schedule an appointment!  

How can I be sure your designers are qualified to help me?

Unlike other similar companies, all of our talented designers have extensive backgrounds that include interior design, architecture, general contracting and home organization and are thoroughly trained before working with customers. The majority of our designers have worked with us over 5 years and we are confident all of them will provide you with excellent service.

Are your systems readjustable? Can I change my design down the road if I need to?

Most of our systems can be changed with a phone call to our company. We’ll review the original paperwork for your job, what you’d like to change, (send someone to your home if necessary) and determine the materials and cost involved and schedule a time that works for you when one of our Professional Installers can complete the work.

When will I see your designer’s idea for my space?

Most of the time, the designer who consults with you in your home will schedule a second appointment for this purpose. In the case of something simple we may be able to present a design and pricing the first time we meet. We understand other companies might just email designs to you; however we feel its important to personalize our presentation in order to ensure our understanding of your needs, and your understanding of the many benefits you’ll receive when you choose transFORM!

How much does it cost for a designer to come out to my home?

Our design consultations are free.
