Are you wondering why people don’t read your awesome articles?
Very often, people will give too much emphasis on creating the perfect, world class, most detailed content pieces and totally forget to think of methods to deliver these to their readers.
And while everyone – yes, even the low-quality articles – seem to be getting lots of traffic, your blog is as dry as the Mojave desert.
So what can you do to grow your blog’s traffic and get your online business to the next level?
In this article, we’ll go through 3 extremely powerful tips to build your blog’s traffic and convert that into customers.
So, buckle up – time to learn.
Master your SEO
In order to increase your blog’s traffic, you need to learn how to perform SEO. And by SEO, we don’t simply mean to follow the recommendations that WordPress gives you.
Search Engine Optimization is a skill and an art of its own. If you want to be rewarded with massive amounts of traffic, you will have to learn how to perform on-page and off-page SEO.
On-page SEO, includes all the technical aspects that can be optimized. Here, you want to look at the current condition of your website and try to improve in all areas that may be holding you back.
It also includes everything related to your content, such as proper keyword research and effective use of words, to engage your readers.
Off-page SEO, includes all the efforts you make that are not directly related to your own website. Essentially, you are reaching out to others, networking, offering value and building good professional relationships.
Here, you have to think of your backlink strategy, as well as your guest post strategy, both of which can lead to a spike in your blog’s traffic if used correctly.
This guide will help you become an SEO master in no time, through teaching you the methods and techniques that experts use to rank on Google.
Grow your email list
Creating a powerful email list is the key to an engaging fan base. Sure, you may have people occasionally checking out your posts, but how powerful would your blog become if you had true fans ?
By allowing people to sign up to your newsletter (through a pop-up window or inline box), you can start communicating with your readers more personally, listen to their wishes and needs and offer them all kinds of benefits.
The best part? The whole process can easily be automated by choosing an email marketing software that does the heavy lifting for you.
Promote through different channels
Why only use Google Ads and Facebook Ads when you can use everything the internet has to offer? There are certainly more effective and less costly ways to promote your blog, in order to reach more people.
Ever thought of checking Fiverr to get some cheap promotion deals? You’d be surprised with the promotional opportunities that can be purchased for no more than a “fiver” (5 gbp).
