In Mark, Blog's are made up of a a few different templates. Blog ideas, titles, outlines, introductions, paragraphs, and meta descriptions; are all made slightly differently. Most of these are covered in the Full Blog Template, but we will look how to use all of the above individually here.
Start by heading over to the template section in the app
On the template section of the dashboard, you’ll find plenty of different writing templates depending on the kind of content you want to create. Click on the Blog, to narrow down our selection. It should look something like this:
In no particular order....

Blog post introduction - First impressions matter. This is especially true when you’re creating content. A strong introduction is a great way to immediately engage your audience. It can also help you stand out from the crowd and make an impact. But the opposite is also true. A weak introduction can make you lose your audience before they even have time to really get interested in your content. You might even lose potential customers.
So what makes a good introduction? How can you create one that will grab attention and keep it?
There are many factors that go into making a good introduction. Some of these include:
Be direct with the reader. The median time people spend on articles is 37 seconds. If you want them to read on, then tell them why.
Make it short and sweet. You should be able to show what value your reader will get out of your article in a sentence or two.
Make it personal. You know your customer. Your introduction should reassure your reader that they have come to the right place.
To use the Blog into template (either by itself or as part of the Full blog post), select the template, and start by typing out your main topic. Be sure to include as many details, and if applicable, your opinion, to help guide the AI.
Then let Mark start generating:
Blog paragraphs - If the outline is the framework of the article, the paragraphs is the substance. This is where your audience learns your position on your topic, and this is where you will establish yourself as a thought leader/subject matter expert.
But it can be hard to know how to begin. You may know your topic intimately, but not necessarily how to get it down on paper. Mark Copy’s Paragraph feature comes in handy here. It grabs the topic that you are looking to write about (depending on what section of the blog article you are on), and will start generating ideas on how to open the topic up – taking away the blank page for you.
To use the Blog Paragraph template (either by itself or as part of the Full blog post), select the template, and start by typing out the topic of that particular paragraph. Be sure to include as many details, and if applicable, your opinion, to help guide the AI.
Then let Mark start generating:
