How To Attract People To Your Blog
How to attract people to your blog is a subject that interests every blogger! It is always nice to have a blog! But how do we get these people to come and pay us a visit? Read our content, subscribe to our newsletter, and buy our products?
First of all, regular posts are required, information of value to the possible visitor. Articles that are properly optimised so that the search engines take notice and rank them nicely towards the top of page one.
There are so many things that a blogger can do to help and see their analytics skyrocket. Also, there are several really interesting tips that they may not want to go through because they do not always think about them. Or perhaps, they think that they are less important, or because they are not free, and even, there are some that they may take to be a joke. But there are steps that a serious blogger must take into consideration, no matter what.
So, for the benefit of my readers, today, I have selected ten actions that a blogger can take to see more and more visitors coming to their blog, or website just as well.
How to attract people to your blog
1 – Give your prospect a free subscription to your ezine. Nearly everyone is publishing an ezine nowadays so it is essential to give something more and of value with the free gift. You could propose a free marketing advice or promotion when someone subscribes. For that you need to have a signup form visible to your readers where they can enter their first name and email address; nothing more than that is necessary.
2 – Present your visitors with some great free content. Your content will be more enticing to your visitors if it is current and unique. This makes common sense, your article must be interesting, well written and on topic. You could also give them the option to publish the text in their ezine, blog or website, with the understanding that they use it as is, in its entirety, including a link back to your blog or website.
3 – Giveaway a free online directory. This directory should be loaded with useful ebooks, ezines, websites etc. If people perceive your directory to be a valuable source of information they will bookmark your blog and return to it often.
4 – Give your visitors some free ebooks related to your niche. Make sure to include your own adverts in the ebook and allow them to give it away. If you don’t have the skills or the time to write one, seek other writers’ permission to use their story. You could also have one especially written for by freelancers, like on Fiverr.
5 – You can organize free online consultations or discussions. They might be directed from your website’s live channel. The thought of “live” training will definitely attract people to stop by your blog or website. You will quickly be recognized as a professional in your field.
6 – Give your audience free access to your sweepstakes or contest. The rewards will have to be an item of value and interest to your readers. Usually those who have entered will regularly return to your blog to get the reports. If you are not too sure what a sweepstake is, or how to organise one, Wikipedia is a good place to get started from.
7 – Allow your visitors to download some great free software, such as shareware, apps, freeware, presentations, etc. You could also reserve a page on your blog or website as a directory of free and useful apps and software. If you are the creator of the app or software yourself, make sure to include the link to your blog or website inside. Allow other people to distribute it as well, for free or even sell it if they wish.
8 – Propose free on-line help or tips from your blog or website. It could also be search engine submissions, SEO tips, copy writing and proofreading, advertising space, etc. The support or service offered should be useful to your intended readers.
9 – Offer free training to those who visit your website or blog. You could share your expertise by e-mail, on the phone, Skype, WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. They will appreciate this as a huge benefit because they most likely know that consulting fees is otherwise very costly.
10 – Offer your readers a free entry to your private online club, or forum, your Facebook private group. People like to belong to some group, be part of a community. Why not your “VIP Online Private Club”? You could also hand out a free ezine reserved to club members only.
Of course, I could easily go on and on with tips such as these. It doesn’t mean that by making use of all of them your readership will skyrocket overnight. It is up to you to test a few of them and see what works best for you.
