Has any of your non-believing family and friends ever ask you this? It even get to the point where you question your ability to write good blog posts. But there’s certain things you need to know in order to get an audience and traffic to your blog. Let’s find out what they are….
Some of us have some unsupportive peers who don’t believe in our abilities to not only grow a home business but also write a blog that people want to read. After telling them our plans, we get a negative response from them.
This can lower our spirits when it comes to blogging. Not only do their comments ring in our brains, but also we conjure up the ghosts of failure. You know what they say “An idled mind is the devil’s workshop”.
When this happens we start the block out what we need to do to make sure that we actually do get readers to our blog. No matter how much advice we get from people who have successful blogs, we ask ourselves “Who am I to become successful in blogging”.
But here’s the thing to remember…
People like people, especially topics that they can relate to.
People want to read blogs from real people.
People want to read posts who have similar experiences and have solutions to their problems.
If you can establish that with your blog then you will definitely grow a big audience and traffic to your blog. This is a part of branding yourself depending on what your niche is.
So what can you do to start to build your audience?
The first thing you want to make sure you want to do is have an attractive Title. You want to know what is the hot topic of your niche and use it as the title. A great way to come up with compelling titles is the through use of Headline Analyzers. You can google them and find many. Once you figure that out, pick what way you want to express to the topic…
Write A Rant – Everyone has something that really irritates them and want to express how they feel. If your readers see that you feel irritating about the same thing they’re irritated about, this can turn into a hot discussion within your comments.
Write A Humorous Post – The one thing I write about sometimes are the mistakes that I have made. Now it may have not been funny when I was making them, but when I look back, these mistakes tend to be funny. Expressing humorous moments is a great way to show your audience that you have a sense of humor.
Write A Good Story – A lot of people love stories, especially those that they can relate to. Writing a good story about yourself or someone else can draw attention to many readers.
Write A Scenario – One of the best ways to help your readers is to get them to think. Using scenarios may help them improve their business by asking “What If” questions as well as others. For Example: What if facebook blocked all home business owners? What other options do you have?
