Ready to give up blogging because you do not seem to attract readers?
Nobody seems to be interested in what you have to say?
Do you think you’ve heard and tried all ideas to bring and keep loyal readers for your blog?
Not so fast! Check out the tips below and let me know if you’ve learned something new ;)
1. Write blog posts regularly
Show up no matter what. To be honest, I am not in the mood to write this post, but I’m doing it anyway because I want you to get at least a blog post every week. That’s my commitment to you, my loyal readers.
2. Listen to your readers
Write blog posts about questions you get from your blog readers.
Bonus: You’ll be the star if you also let that reader know that you wrote that post at their request. It may look as a lot of work for just one reader, but it could become a loyal one for life.
3. Reply to comments on your own blog
Reply to questions within two days. Ideally, reply to all comments to show you care.
When you replied to a question to help someone, there is a great chance they will remember and become loyal readers.
Bonus: Visit the commenter’s blog and post a comment as a thank you.
4. Answer to people’s questions on your Facebook page
Bonus: From time to time, visit their Facebook page and thank them for asking those questions, for commenting, or for liking your posts.
Not many people take the time to do this these days, so you’ll be a star!
5. Become a regular on Facebook pages where other bloggers are hanging out
Comment when you have something valuable to add to the conversation. Share their posts on your page if you think they are useful for your Facebook community as well.
6. Reply to people on Twitter
Bonus: Go over and above the boring “Thanks for the RT”. Take time to get to know your tweeps better, particularly the ones that share and RT your content on a regular basis.
7. Participate in Twitter chats
Twitter chats that relate to your blog niche are a great place to meet new readers for your blog. You may get the conversation going on Twitter and then continue on your blog.
All these are great, right?
If you only had 10 more hours in the day… Seriously, don’t feel like you have to do all of them to make your blog better.
Even if you pick 2-3 tips from the list and get to work on them, you’ll see your list of followers and readers growing.
Are you saying you want to do all these consistently and even more? You’re on the right track and you’ll be unstoppable!
