The takeaway should be the main point of the article. It should be clear and concise, not a paragraph or two that you can’t summarize in one sentence. You can use this space to give your readers an idea of what they will learn from reading further, but it’s best if you don’t repeat what they’ve already read. If you want them to read further on their own, then use a link (or “click here” or simply “read more”).
