Catch the Eye
As an SEO consultant, it is essential that the website being worked on catches the eye and effectively grabs the customer’s attention. For a Content Marketer or blog writer, the same stands for the content that is produced, as without an engaging, thought provoking title and an interesting introduction that leaves you wanting to read more, there will be no hope of your piece of writing being read from start to finish.
Involve the Reader
One of the very best ways to maintain readers is to involve them in what you are doing. If a reader comments on a post that you have written, make sure you reply to it as the reader will soon see that there is a real person behind the writing. Replying to comments will also help you develop relationships in
addition to getting potential ideas for future posts from what the people reading your blog are talking about.
More people will want to keep coming back to your blog if they can see that the relevant research has been put in and as a result you are continually providing useful information and ideas. Don’t be afraid to link through to other resources within your posts either if you feel they will help the reader in some way as they will certainly appreciate you for it. The more research you put in, the better the overall post and in direct correlation to that, the more readers of your blog you will have.
If you feel your writing may being getting a little monotonous after a while and you are struggling for ideas, invite others to post on your blog whilst you take some time out to do more research and develop further ideas. This may add a fresh outlook to your blog or a different approach to tackling relevant issues, and in turn could open up other writing opportunities for you as many guest bloggers are happy to exchange, therefore allowing you to get your writing on their blog!
Whether you are the owner of a standalone blog or write on behalf a company on a website’s blog pages, these tips should help to ensure that you maintain a high readership and continually produce interesting and engaging content on a regular basis.
