Attracting more readers to your blog, like hummingbirds to your backyard garden, can take time & patience – but the rewards are never ending…
Here are a few tips to keep your visitors entertained & coming back for more.
Schedule Consistent Postings
It’s very beneficial to publish quality content on a consistent schedule. 3 to 5 posts per week is highly recommended in order to climb the search engines. Publishing your posts during the same time (12:00 noon) is the peak time. Your audience will expect a new article during a certain time frame & they will be looking out for it.
Provide Content Sharing
With every blog post you publish, make sure it is also shared across all your social media networks. Include the proper tags and #Hashtags for each network. You can pin the shares of your post to the top of your profiles as well. Make all posts shareable, your readers will likely share your articles with their followers & connections, driving more traffic to your listings, blog and website.
Give Various Ways To Subscribe
Growing your email list is the most important thing you can do for your business. However, email lists shouldn’t be the only subscription option that you offer your readers. Not all viewers want to receive more emails in their inbox than needed, and if visitors can only subscribe via email, they likely won’t. Everyone wants choices that suits their needs. Your audience should be able to find their options to stay connected with via links/logos. Such as a follow button on your blog, RSS feed, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and of course Google+.
