How To Write Good Blog Posts That Trigger Readers Response – 6 Proven Tips — 34 Comments

  1. It is where most bloggers suck. They can write blogs and cram quality information into it.

    But what they miss is that after the visitor has completed reading the blog post there should be a kind of action that they need to take to raise your conversion goals.

    Therefore the more clearly you pass the information the better they will do.

    As a trick I do is that I add a pop up opt-in so I can have the visitor the next time a new article is published.

    • Well said Sheikave, thanks for sharing your thoughts and tip to collect emails. One thing that I have learned is that most newbies seem to be afraid to ask for the reader’s action (“call to action”). And it is amazing to know how many readers reach the end of an article and don’t know what to do next. So it is a must to place some sort of call to action at the end of an article, especially that if someone has taken the time to read that far, it must be someone who is really interested, therefore we do not want him/her to go away without taking some sort of desired action (signup for newsletter, make a purchase, go to another page, etc.).

  2. While I agree with all the points mentioned, the thing that resonated with me most is when you say sometimes an idea gets lost when we try to sit down and write about it because we didn’t note it down the first time it occurred. Happened so many times with me. You know, sometimes an idea comes up all of a sudden, and it can be anywhere – during work, on journeys, while driving, in the washroom – but because I didn’t record it somewhere then and there, it gets lost and I’m not able to recollect it when I sit down in front of our computer. Yes, you are right. We should write down that idea immediately on a notebook or our mobile so that we could elaborate on it later. Thanks for this awesome post!

    • Thanks for visiting my website and for sharing your experience with us Sukumar. If you are in business, it is absolutely necessary that you carry with you at all times something where you can jot down a flash idea. It could be a note book, your smartphone, or anything. But there are times where you might not have such tool handy, it happened to me several times, so what I do is this case? I visualise the idea, spell it, link it to something else, give it a color, a particular name and tell it to come back to me, say, in two hours time, and it works. I see that we have the same idea Sukumar, no matter how we believe that we can depend on our short term memory, we cannot!

      I have written an article some time ago which I am sure that you will enjoy reading and benefit from it too. You can find it here: “How To Reduce Information Overload“.

      Looking forward to seeing you again soon as I have a few great business tips ready to be shared here in the next day or two.

  3. My husband and I are retired. He saw an ad on the Internet that said affiliate marketing was a good way to earn extra money. Unfortunately, he knows little about how to start such a business.
    I have been trying to research the topic. Yours is the first place I have seen anyone offer insights into how it works. Is it expensive to start such a business?
    Writing the articles might not be too difficult but learning all of the associated social interactions would be left to me. I wonder if it is worth the effort.
    Thank you for your lovely article. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • Thanks for taking the time to go through my website Sheila. Affiliate marketing is definitely the easiest way to generate an extra income (perfect for retired people like you and me). However, there are lots, and lots of scams out there, so you should tell your husband to be very careful. 

      I have been earning online full time long before I retired so I had plenty of time to learn the ropes, being scammed, and make some decent residual income which I am still enjoying now, more than ever, that I am retired.

      If you and your husband would accept my advice, and want to start an Internet business, I would definitely recommend Wealthy Affiliate. It is FREE to join and earn as you learn the business of making money online. There, you will find everything you need to know, and it is not that difficult really. The help you will receive is like I have never come across anywhere else.

      So, yes, nothing to worry about, nothing to lose, just a bit of your time is required.

      Let me know if you have any questions and I will be pleased to help you out.

      Best wishes and my regards to your husband.

  4. Hey there,

    I have just gotten started with working online and I am finding very hard to write the articles on my website because I am not well versed with the writing structure and the tone.

    Since this is a serious issue that is holding me back from growing the website, I was thinking about hiring a freelance writer to do the work for me.

    What would you advise me? Should I struggle and learn it myself or I should go ahead with my plan?

    • Thanks for sharing your concern about writing content for your website Dave. It is incredible how this skill becomes a second nature when you put your mind to it. If I were you I would learn how to write your own articles yourself. You don’t have to worry about how it looks like, just write, and you will find out that you are getting better at it as time goes by. Then you can always come back later to your original posts and fix them. You will be surprised how your style would have improved as you are getting better at it.

      At the beginning, you might need a bit of help to have a few pieces written for you by freelancers. If you want to do that, I would recommend Fiverr.

      I hope that this will help you get started and please do come back here often and share with us your progress and success.

      I wish you the very best.

  7. Hi John

    This is a nice post. I have learned about adapting my post to the social network and much more. For example, I never took time to republish my content on twitter, I just publish it once and that’s it. From now on I will make sure to publish the same content twice a month on twitter to make sure that it reaches a maximum of people.

    I also like the idea of getting some professional writers to help me but I guess that can be quite expensive. So, I will plan accordingly to have that in the future.

    Thanks for sharing

    • Thanks for commenting on my blogspot Adyns68 and I am glad that you picked up a few good tips that will help with your SEO.

  8. Spoken like a true elder. Thank you, John, for your wonderfully written article on how to write (and follow up) on blog posts. Your website proves that you walk the talk. The 6 tools to help write the articles will be put to good use! We also agree that follow up is important… we look forward to setting that up more efficiently… We have taken the route of best to get started than to wait for perfection…. Blogging is something that we have been doing in our spare time. Our personal preference is leaning more towards vlogging as we have observed that technology is driving shorter attention spans. We do recognise the need for longer attention spans and encourage it… so perhaps a blend of both. As wellness professionals… we recognise the need to delegate work to those who specialise (have the lived experience) and have the talent for it. We are glad to come across your website. Thanks so much for your much appreciated contribution. 🙂

    • Thanks very much for commenting extensively on this article all the way from OZ iToLing. My wife and I have 2 children (and their partners) and 5 grands in Whittlesea, less than an hour from where you are. We try to visit them once every 2 years, but a 21 hours flight is becoming harder for us upper-middle aged folks.

      Well I’m glad that you discovered a few useful things that will help you improve your your websites.

      I wish you both the very best for your online projects.


  9. Thank you for these great tips about writing. I will keep them in mind and integrate them into my writing process as I continue creating content on my website. You are right it’s important to engage the reader and give them something to respond to. Getting comments on my website is helpful for that reason because it gives me a sense of engaging with the people who read my posts. So then every article I feel like I’m learning more and I keep gaining more experience with writing. Thanks again for another great article!

    • Happy to know that you enjoyed reading this article Charles, and that you have added a few more things to you knowledge.

      I wish you great success with your online projects and should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your questions here, okay?


  10. So much information that I don’t even know what else I need that is not present in this post. Thanks for this great article. Though I’m a blogger but the area that I lack the most is losing ideas on what to write on. Thankfully, your article talks about that too. I must carry a note around to jot down any idea that pops into my head. This is more than helpful as this problem has served as the major obstacle for most of my writers block. Thabks

    • Thanks for your comment RoDarrick. I am glad that this article has given you a few tips for your future blog posts. Let me know if you have any questions.

      In the meantime, I wish you a great week.


  11. Hi,

    Great article about how to write a good blog posts that trigger readers response. I am in the online business field for nearly 2 years. But still, I feel a problem to write a blog. But after reading this article I got enough value. You explain very well about not only how to write but what should be included, the length of a blog as well as how to share in social media. I personally learned a lot from this article today. Thanks a lot for sharing with us such a valuable and informative article.

    • Thanks for taking the time to read this updated version of my blogpost Nazmun, and for your comment. I am glad that you learned a few things from it and I wish you the very best for your online business.



  12. Goodness! Incredible article. I truly value your point of view for making web journals. I will begin utilizing your proposal to do my site now. I never realized mastering web wrting and search engine optimization procedures can trigger readers reaction. You’ve worked superbly by giving nitty gritty clarification on the 6tools that aides in making articles. I think I have to begin dealing with what perusers need and furthermore begin posting on my web based life. Helpful educational audit, much obliged.

    • Thanks very much for reading my blogpost and for giving your opinion on its value for the blogger. I am glad it gave you the spirit to get your writing going.

      Let me know if you have any questions and I wish you the very best for your project.


  13. Looks interesting, nice and informative article and a site I would say! And yeah, its the critical part of bloggers and their way towards their glory they fail most of the time; they can write blogs and quality information of it.
    But where they miss is that when visitors have read the blog post, they should be taking action towards fulfilling your marketing goals and conversion goals. Also fully agree it is super important to NOT to lose your ideas, You know, sometimes the best idea comes up all sudden and you are about to lose it. 

    • You are quite right Jesse, ideas come and vanish within a split second, if you do not have something within reach to record this great idea it may be gone forever. I guess many of us have experienced these flash idea moments that have vanished never to come back again.

      I am glad that you enjoyed my article and that you found some useful bits in it.

      Thanks for commenting and I look forward to seeing you here again soon.


  14. Hi John

    You can still write good blog posts and still not get any response because people in general are becoming immune to  the effects or can’t bothered to do so. Your blog is wonderfully written and covers all you need to know. If you could pique someone interest then no matter what is written, people will engage in it. Think about a book, a book can be long and you never want to put it down, or it can be a pamphlet size and you cannot wait to be rid of it. This is so hard to judge right as it is so hard to balance Google requirements with your readers’ requirements. 

    I really enjoyed your segment on social media, as often that you are banging your head against a wall. You try everything but nothing seems to work. Twitter is the bane of my life, as you try everything but you do not get any clicks. Is there anything that can be done to get more engagement?



    • Great reading your very interesting views on the subject Antonio. It is true that the blogger not only needs to please its readers with good quality content, but also the search engines, in particular Google. It is not an easy job to know what your readers like or not as there is so much information online now that the users tend to forget that a real person behind the scenes has worked hard to produce it and they take it for granted now. They don’t realise how much pleasure the writer will have if someone would spent a couple of minutes to write a few nice words in the comments section of the blog.

      Therefore, I thank you very much for doing that. I do appreciate it a lot.

      Social media is not what it used to be anymore. Again, people get overfed with information that they hardly see what is showing on their screen. As for Twitter, I have given up with them. For me it has been a few years of great leads source but as they have decided to charge for advertising, they are discriminating users who tweet their business for free. They recently shut down 3 of my most productive accounts with a total of over 200K very receptive followers, years of hard work gone down the drain in a flash!

      Right now I believe that Instagram and Pinterest are the ones to follow, but for how long? So I am back to the good old list building system.

      I wish you the very best for your online projects Antonio.

    I loved every bit of it and i have learnt some new tricks that i will be adding to how i create content. I would read this again just before my next post and every post after that. I loved the various resources you dropped also.

      Best wishes,


  16. Hi John,

    Thank you for sharing your tips and ideas for Writing Good Blog Posts That Trigger Readers Response. You provided several suggestions that I will incorporate into my blog writing.

    I, too, am a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate, and the niche I chose, which I love, has been very difficult for me to think about how I should progress. You simplified things for me and suggested not only ways to find ideas and write for my audience’s interests but to focus on quality rather than quantity. This has been an issue for me since our training instructed us to write 1,500 words or more. I also appreciate your section, 6 tools to help you create articles, and your ideas about using social media and repeating articles after long intervals.

    Moreover, as you stated about us beginners, we hesitate to make a Call for Action, so I will remember to do that. Again, I thank you for giving us much food for thought that will help us move out of our “beginner” stage.

    • Thanks so much for taking the time to extensively comment on this blogpost James, I do appreciate it. Like you, when I started blogging, my biggest nightmare was to find sufficient words to make up a blog post, but with practice I became better at it. 

      I wonder if you have read one of my past articles on “What Is The Best Length For A Blog Post?“, this might help you as well. Let me know what you think.

      I am glad to know that you are also a Premium Member at Wealthy Affiliate, isn’t it the best place to be to learn how to make money online? I hope that you are doing well, and if you have any questions or need any help just give me a shout, okay?

      I wish you the very best,
