Nobody begins blogging with the hope that their thoughts and information go unnoticed. The point of a blog is to attract and engage readers. Why else would someone spend the time to publish their work?
The problem of low readership on your blog is a difficult one to solve, but it can be done. Here are some of the best ways to get more attention and build a loyal readership.
- Be Different
- Engage Everywhere
- Embrace Controversy
- Get Your Readers Coming Back
- Make It Easy For People To Find You
- Be Patient
Being different is easier said than done. These days, it is very difficult to find a new topic that is untouched by other bloggers. The key is to take a different approach to what everyone else is doing.
If there are a thousand blogs covering marketing, how many are covering the psychology of marketing? The same goes for fitness, finance, “doomsday prepping” etc. Find the most popular topics in a niche, then think laterally in order to provide a unique and fresh perspective on a given topic.
The internet is becoming increasingly crowded. Even in the most obscure niches, there is competition for readers. The best way to reach readers is to be everywhere they are.
Starting a podcast, commenting on other high traffic blogs and engaging in social media and on forums are all ways to get in front of possible readers. In short, tap into hangouts and other people’s traffic to gain more exposure.
Being controversial is scary and it can be dangerous if done recklessly. An example of controversy might be in the tech world. Apple is the darling of technology bloggers. If you run a blog on technology topics, consider running a post on why this is wrong.
Be careful not to disparage other people or brands. Controversy can equal trouble. This goes well with point number one in being different. Being different is often controversial, but if you generate controversy the right way, you can build a nice sized audience in a short amount of time.
One of the best ways to drive traffic to your blog is to retain your past visitors. The best way to do this is through email subscriptions. There are low cost, and even free options like Mail Chimp that can help you to get started.
If people are willing to give you their email address, they are more likely to share your content with their friends and social media circles. Treat your subscribers with respect. Don’t spam them, don’t sell to them constantly, and always be willing to engage them when they comment on your posts.
The best ways to get found are through social sharing and search engine optimization (SEO). Social is fairly easy. Putting social sharing buttons your blog make it easy for people to Tweet, Like and 1 your work to others online.
As far as SEO goes, the best and safest methods are to optimize your post titles for keywords that get significant amounts of traffic, ensuring your keywords get into the URL of your posts, and making your posts easy to read with short sentences and paragraphs.
If you engage away from your site and promote your content, the links will take care of themselves.
Building a loyal and thriving readership for your blog takes time. Be willing to create compelling work, engage with those who are most likely to appreciate it, and your audience will grow.
