How To Make Readers Come Back To Your Blog Again and Again?
Internet is that media which provides everyone the opportunity to express one’s self and convey his/her ideas or opinions to the world. People write blogs for various reasons. Some write personal blogs to update their personal and professional activities while others do it for commercial purpose. Blogs are also maintained to support standalone small home based businesses. However, most blogs are used to support different websites and the products they offer. It is also noteworthy that most of the times they don’t let the customer feel that they are trying to promote some product or website.
Blog owners and writers need to pull the visitors repeatedly in order to have a maximum chance of boosting their business. There are some tried out approaches that have won the loyalty of the readers and in the lines to follow we will discuss them.
Follow their Interest
It is a hard fact that people read what they like. You might have written a well researched scholarly article but you won’t find many readers. On the other hand, if you compiled some facts about a personality who is in the news for good or bad reasons you can have millions reading it.
First things first – Not only, should the title be strong but it should also convey the right sense to the reader. It is disgusting to misguide the reader with an attractive title which has no link to the content written under it.
People will get interested only if they find something new. If you keep on passing boring and worn out messages they will be quickly turned off. Moreover the information should be relevant to the topic. Never transgress from the theme or else the reader will be clueless.
Leave Some Margin
You will get a reader interested when he/she finds information. But this doesn’t mean that they will come back later. Make them feel that there is some missing part and give beacons for that information in next posts. But remember, they will only come if the quality of the current post is satisfactory.
Facts & Figures
Posts which contain well researched facts and figures are bound to increase credibility. Many people are more interested in the stats than perceptions. They deduce from such data and rarely read the text written with it. Moreover it is easier to skim facts and figures rather than reasoning sentences. Therefore, there is every chance that the reader will bookmark your blog for future references.
Be creative! It is sane to follow the norms but sometimes it is fun to just stop following them for a while and punch in something that is totally offbeat! Use inspiration, share your ideas and interests and express the way you feel. You will be surprised by how easily people are drawn towards your blog.
It gives a wonderful feeling to the user if h/s comments and gets it published at your blog. This will also spark discussions between the readers and yourself under the comment section, so more readers will be returning to your blog. Another way to activate the reader is to ask him to fill forms for different polls.
Don’t Let Your Visitors Down
Just imagine a blog with so many blog posts and no visitors… Seems terrible, doesn’t it? Well, this happens when you start letting your visitors down. Many bloggers start neglecting their blogs once they feel satisfied that they have gained a certain amount of visitors. Either they don’t pay much attention to their blogs or they start ignoring the quality of their posts, automatically, the visitors start feeling neglected. So, last but not the least, never let your visitors down as they are the reason why your blog is running till this time.
If you want readers returning to your blog, you need to feel what their interest is. Provide them with useful content and get them active by asking for their input. This and other creative methods can make them visit your blog again and again!
