With so many blogs on the internet today, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.
That’s especially so when you realize there are tons of other blogs writing about the exact same topics as you!
So, how in the world do you get those people to discover your site and come back to yours over all the others? You make them fall in love with you, of course!
I started blogging in 2009 and I’ve covered a variety of niches. And I’ve learned the difference between a successful blog and one that flops. To help you out, I’m sharing a few essential tips to make your blog readers love you!
How to Make Your Blog Readers Love You
Are you ready to make your blog readers love you and the content you have to offer? Then you’re in the right place! These tips are sure to help you build a loyal following of people who truly enjoy your work.
1. Give Your Readers What They Want
The first step in making people love your blog is publishing high-quality, valuable content they’re going to enjoy. And you do that by giving your readers exactly what they want and doing so on a consistent basis.
That means you need to figure out who your ideal reader is, what her interests are, and what she’s struggling with so you can help her out.
When you continue to deliver the content your target audience is searching for, they have all the reason to come back to your site time and time again. After a while, that’s going to help you build a following of loyal people who are going to support you.
2. Write in Your Own Unique Voice
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is trying to be someone else with your blog content. That’s not going to resonate with your readers. And it’s certainly not genuine!
To make your blog readers love you, be yourself! Let your personality shine through with every piece of content you create. Those who come across your site will read your content and start to feel a connection with you as a result.
And that connection is a huge part in building the Know, Like, and Trust Factor. That’s essential if you want people to eventually buy your offerings.
If you’re not a natural-born writer, finding your voice may be tricky for you. One great way to help you write content that resonates is by using a dictation app. It’ll capture you in a way you normally speak. You can also read this post on finding your voice as a writer for some helpful tips!
3. Be Consistent
Think about this for a second… Do you ever get a little bummed when your favorite blogger or YouTuber hasn’t posted for a while?
If so, then you know what it would feel like to leave your blog readers waiting for new content! And you wouldn’t want to do that to them, would you?
By being consistent with your content creation schedule, you can make your blog readers love you. They’ll always know they can count on you to deliver amazing content on a regular basis. And that gives them something to look forward to.
4. Provide Freebies
If you really want to get people on your good side, why not give them some free stuff? Who doesn’t love that, right?
When appropriate, I’d recommend creating content upgrades to add on to your blog posts. Not only is this another way to give back to your readers, but it grows your email list in the process. It’s a win-win!
There are tons of ideas you can use for content upgrades, including worksheets, checklists, or even a mini e-course via email. It’s totally up to you!
