Many bloggers have the same problem…..trying to connect with their readers.
Sometimes it can feel like you are writing your backside off and getting nothing in return. No-one is responding to your posts and your traffic levels are just levelling out.
So what can you do?
Well, trying to connect directly to your readers is one of the best ways to improve your readership and improve your long term growth.
Here are 3 ways that can help your blog:
#1 – Talk from Experience
Sharing your experience about a particular topic is a great way to become seen as an authority. Many people might have had the same experience and it makes them more likely to comment on your posts.
It also proves that you do know what you are talking about and your readers will see this clearly.
#2 – Have Your Own Opinion
The problem with many blogs is that they are written in a way that appeals to everyone. Whilst this isn’t technically a “bad” thing, what it means is that you won’t get much buzz around the blog.
If everything you are writing about appeals to everyone, then no-one will add their own opinions to your posts.
But if you share your own opinions then people are more likely to agree or disagree with you. When this happens it starts a conversation and your comment count can start increasing quite a lot.
#3 – Show Yourself
People can relate better to information on websites or blogs if they can see or hear the person writing it.
By adding your photo to your blog and also audios and videos, people can see exactly who you are and they will connect far more easily than if they were just reading text.
Don’t worry about how you look or sound either, people will see you for who you are and what experience you have that can help them. That is what is important to them.
Just these 3 tips can make a real difference to your blog and how appealing it is.
Try giving at least one of them a trial and monitor your results. You might just like it.
Enjoy Your Blogging!
