How To Attract People To Your Blog

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 is a must, information of value to the possible visitor. Articles that are properly optimized 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

You have created your blog already a while ago and you were hoping that it would become profitable very quickly. Also, you are writing great content regularly and offering the best products on the market.

You often share your posts on social media, but nothing seems to happen. In fact the few that land on your blog don’t seem to stay long enough to even see what you are promoting. Why is that?

So, you are starting to wonder …

Is it Possible to Have a Profitable Blog at All?

Yes of course! You can make money (and comfortably) with your blog, but you have to adapt to demand and competition which have evolved.

Also, the Internet users have become very demanding because of the choice they have at their disposal.

So how do you get readers come to your blog, to be interested enough to remain and come back to it so that you can convert some of them into customers?

10 Techniques to Attract People to Your Blog

In this article, I’m going to give you the 10 best approaches to get there, so stay tuned.

1 – Give your prospect a free subscription to your newsletter

Nearly everyone is publishing a newsletter nowadays so it is essential to give something more and of value as a 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 freebies

People LOOOOVE freebies, you know that, right? Software, such as shareware, apps, freeware, presentations, etc. are great gifts for your readers.

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.

What’s next?..

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.

You might also have some experience in using your own strategies, or you might have developed some ways to attract visitors to your website or blog, which my readers would love to hear about and try for themselves.

    I learned many new ideas and I will try to apply them in my own websites. I will try to add regular posts to attract new visitors as you said.
    I liked very much the idea to add a free online directory which is loaded with useful ebooks, ezines, websites etc.
    All in all, The article is amazing. I really read it word by word and learned many new ideas to go ahead.

    • Thanks very much Rania for visiting my website and for taking the time to comment on my latest post. I am glad that you have found some useful tips that you can apply to your website.

      For your info, I have written an article a while back that might be of interest to you regarding the ideal length of a blog post: “What Is The Best Length For A Blog Post?“. Please let me know what you think.

      Best wishes,

  • Furkan

    I also want to include my own e-book. But even though I know my niche very well I actually have a hard time to choose a topic. What do you recommend for me?

    • Hi Furkan,

      Thanks for being a regular reader of my articles, I do enjoy reading yours as well. If you have an eBook of your own it would be very useful for you to have it on your website.

      To answer your question, it is sometimes difficult to find the inspiration for new articles, especially when you have already written many, you tend to think that you have said everything on the subject.

      To help me find topics for new articles, I use a technique that is called the “Alphabet Soup Technique“, which is very simple to use, it is also used to find keywords. It is very well explained in this video: the “Alphabet Soup Technique“.

      Hope this helps.

      Best wishes,

      John ツ

  • Linda

    Hi, John! Thanks for sharing these amazing tips! I would love to try some of them. I am trying to add new posts to attract visitors. I am also using social media (google+, twitter, and Pinterest).

    I love your ideas. Thanks! Have a great day, John! I am looking forward to reading new posts from you.

    • Thanks for reading my post and for taking the time to comment Linda. Apparently you are already doing the right things. As you have read in my article, there are so many things that you can do to attract an audience, the results depend on so many factors. What I am suggesting may not work for everyone, or every products or services that you are offering, but it is worth trying them and see for yourself.

      As mentioned also, if you have a technique that you are using which proves to be successful for you, my readers (and myself) would love to know about it.

      Take care and best wishes for your online venture.

  • Iain

    You’ve got a lot of great content on this blog, John. I liked this article myself because I’ve just started out blogging and, inevitably, am looking at real-time traffic analytics and seeing a big donut most of the time! But that’s fine, I know it takes time.
    What I’m interested in is how and when Google starts to “trust” your website. The process seems to be a little mysterious, perhaps they just wait and check you don’t do anything silly. Difficult for robots to check quality of content, of course. Hard enough for humans!
    But I liked your suggestions, and I’ll definitely be checking this blog out in the future.

    • Thanks for being a regular on this blog Iain. Your comments always make sense and they certainly help my readers to find themselves too. There is no definite time, or reasons, for Google to start trusting your blog or website. Some have reported being number 1 in a matter of weeks, but that may also depend on their niche. Personally, I don’t believe that a real human is reading all the contents coming online every minute to decide if any are worth ranking. In my opinion if you keep doing the right things, and often, a robot will eventually come across your blog and rank it.

      So Iain, keep writing articles with the right number of words, the right keywords, and share on social media.

      I look forward to seeing you here again soon.

  • Phil

    I want to learn how to attract people to your blog because I am planning on creating one next month. I want to be able to help people and also need to familiarize myself with ways to get people to my blog. I found some good ideas in your article and I’ve started writing things down so I don’t forget. My memory isn’t what it once was so I often need to write things down. I think that I would like to create a private Facebook group where I could offer even more help to members.

    • Thanks for visiting my website and for your comments Phil. If you have bookmarked this link you will be able to come back often to get ideas. And remember that you can always count on me and my readers to answer your questions at any time. So feel free!

      I wish you the very best for your new online venture.

  • thesis writing service

    I read this article. I think You put a lot of effort to create this article. I appreciate your work.

  • Cynthia

    Thank you for such a great article. I recently started my own blog and I am very far from getting traffic. It has only been 1 month I have been adding blogs and I have selected a competitive niche, so I am worried about getting viewers and followers.

    I have been only using pinterest as social media so far. I am amazed the increase in impressions and clicks since I started only 1 month ago, but NO ONE new has started following me. I am not sure what to do? I read your article and the work FREE seems really crucial.

    So should I pin some posts on pinterest offering something free? I would have to be creative at this point as I feel I have not reached this level of creativity.

    Either way, you article motivated me to not give up and made me think out of the box.

    Thank you so much!

    • John

      Thanks very much for reading my blog post and for taking the time to comment Cynthia. One month is rather too soon to get a lot of interest, but apparently you are on the right track judging by your comment about your increase in impressions and clicks.

      You do not need to share on many social platforms yet Cynthia. To start with, you can do with Pinterest alone. I know of many successful marketers who are only sharing on Pinterest. But as you are becoming more experienced, add at least Twitter and Facebook to your social sharing platforms.

      As you have read in my tutorial, nowadays Internet users won’t give you their contact details if you don’t give them something in exchange. If you have something of your own to give out for free, like a tutorial, a newsletter, some marketing tips for example, great, but make sure to collect at least their email address and first name first. 

      One thing that I like to give out which is of great value, which I didn’t create myself but is very much appreciated, it is the free “One Signup A Day Strategy 2.0” report. You could also distribute it to your prospects and readers.

      I wish you the very best for your online project Cynthia.

      Stay healthy and safe!

    i am also going to try out some of these tips and maybe find myself a freelancer to help me create more content for my work.

    Thank you for this man .

    • John

      Thanks very much for your comment Gyvinek and I do hope that you will give some of my tips a try and if you wish to find yourself a good freelancer I suggest that you give Fiverr a try.

  • Jomata

    Exactly what I needed, I have been my blog for the past six months but I haven’t gotten any traffic or something much subscription to my my blog, I’m implementing the strategies you shared on this post, I’m sure this will bring the traffic I’ve always wanted on my blog, thanks for sharing.

    • John

  • Mark

    Hi John,

    Your twenty years of expertise clearly shine through on this one. Creating unique and current content is my takeaway from this well laid out post. We all seek to be part of some exclusive membership and so you are spot on when you mention the need to offer free membership to your private online club. There is so much more to glean from here but I will chew on these two for now. Thank you.

    We are Blessed.

    • John

      I am glad that you have found at least two suggestions to work on in my article Mark. Once you have implemented them, we would love to hear from you.

      Wishing you the very best Mark.

      Stay safe, healthy and blessed.
