The internet is bustling with blogs. Every day countless content pieces are added to the internet, some get audience while others bite the dust. With more and more bloggers joining the arena, it has become substantially important to understand the essentials of a blog. How your blog should look like and how can it become more reader-friendly are two of the things that need attention.
Making a post popular is every blogger’s dream. It’s been a long time since you posted your first blog, but haven’t received any like or comment! Everything’s great, from content to presentation; but still no readers. Maybe I can help you! If you’ve been wondering what is it that’s stopping your blog from making it big, but haven’t yet found an answer, then read these five tips when penning down a content piece.
- Don’t just browse, research the web:
Research and find out data that can help you illustrate your points better. Keep a tab on the topics or social media posts that are relative to your content. Make small notes on how you plan to use them in your content. This will help you have an outline ready, without even actually starting the main work.
- Be relevant:
The online world is vocal. If you listen, you can use it to your benefit. Don’t just blindly promote your brand, listen to what is ‘trending’. Write about a subject that people want to talk about. Think of ways to use those topics to your advantage – and if they are around something popular, then voila!
- Quality matters:
Quality content can take you a long way. People like content that they can share. Don’t just write a mundane or generic post that is uploaded every other day. Research, put some effort and write content that people find interesting. It will reflect in your content, and your blogs will start getting better.
- Make your stories more engaging:
How many readers your blog gathers, depends mostly on the type of content it has. But then again, if a blog doesn’t have a soul, people will refrain from reading it! The majority of consumers prefer brands that put efforts to connect with them. This is why storytelling can be effective when used within your content. It gives you the potential to advance your narrative in a way that’s more involving and engaging.
- Add social media share buttons:
Blogging and promotions go hand-in-hand. To sell your blog, you need to follow a marketer’s approach. Never forget to add social media sharing icons such as LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. at the end of every post. If readers find it interesting, they will be able to easily share it with their friends.
The World Wide Web is over-flowing with filler content. So, don’t be another one to write senseless posts. In 2018, content will remain the King, only if bloggers give an increasing focus on quality and variety.
