Setty breaks down nine ways people respond or react to online content. In my opinion those nine possible actions apply to any piece of writing meant to be read.
He doesn’t stop there, however, but continues with four things any writer should consider even before they put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard.
I particularly like What would be unique (content, point-of-view etc.) in this article that will make the audience do what I want them to do?
Taken in the context of the other points this question alone is what I might call a super-clarifying question for any author.
