Attracting readers to your blog isn’t as simple as reading or writing about the same, on your blog. A visitor turns out to be your reader only if he finds your content interesting. Remember, I’m talking about the content and not the single article.
If you are another wanna-make-money-online-freak, you should not just read about internet marketing and those stereotypical money-making guides, try to produce great content, readable stuff and outstanding points. Only then visitors turn into readers or potential customers and you can start picking your benefits.
Writing content and attracting readers can be individual tasks if you are working for a business; but for blogs, you can write content to attract readers. Without much, let’s see how…
You might own a single blog only but not the reader. He has access to hundreds of similar blogs through search engines. Give the readers a reason, why they should stick to your blog. Fresh content speaks it up.
Regarding the content production, the most common thing I’ve noticed in some bloggers is, they just re-write an existing article or just skim all the articles of the first page on Google. Never the less, they just produce another version of a pre-existing article.
No one doesn’t like to read something which he already knows and so do the blog readers. When you are writing something, they expect something new, every time. So, always write unique and fresh content.
Use Catchy Headlines
What is it, that stamps the first impression of your article? Of course, the headline. The best examples of headlines can always be seen in a newspaper. Just that single line (or maybe a couple, at times) can instantly make you pick up and read the entire article.
I know, writing for print media and writing for the web are both quite contrast. Here, you are also supposed to insert keywords at proper places in the article and make it attractive and magnetic, as well.
Writing catchy headlines is not actually the toughest job on earth. You can either give the detail through the headline or create a suspense with it. The best strategy can be, using SUEPERLATIVE forms in the headline. Because, people always love to read the BEST. You can also add a number at the beginning of the headline to make it look more interesting.
When you’re saying something new, the best possible way to explain is by giving proper examples. You can mention some successful and famous bloggers or even write about yourself and make the content convincing. Because, audience would always love to explore content that gives more inspiration. Inspiration, in terms of success, even more. For example, when you write, people can make $3000 per a single article and Brian Clark is the best example, it is more than enough to bring at least a percentage of your readers into this web copywriting field.
Keep It Simple
I never want you to keep it short because, I, myself write some really long articles. From my personal experience in writing and blogging, what I’ve found is, THE LENGTH DOESN’T SPEAK WHEN YOU HAVE A VOICE. There are bloggers who write articles of no less than 2000 words and some others with not more than 600 words. Both of them are yet, successful.
All that matters in a blog post is how well you express and not, how long you express. You just have to be simple and straight. No crap and no stories. Of course, you can write stories to make it more interesting; but remember, you have something else too, other than fiction.
Have A Writing Style
There are people who can put magic in their words and others, who can motivate you. Some may only give you the data and some others can make you laugh even if he is writing on home decor. You see, every person has his own style of writing (assuming the fact, he’s not a copycat). And I think, having your own style of writing will help you more in creating a brand for yourself. I think, I should give you some examples where each has his own unique style. Here are some bloggers/writers whose writing styles are as follows.
