Sometimes we focus just on gaining new readers, and we do not think about the relationships that we can build.
So you have your blog, and you are sure that, once discovered, is able to charm a reader as it was magic. Too bad, it does not.
In order to get back a casual visitor of your site, there are some interesting tricks.
And if you want to transform your casual reader into a fan who follows you 356 days a year you have to work hard.
See some ideas that can help you.
I think this is a basic rule : answer to your commenters is really important. If you have troubles in receving comments in your blog, there are some tips that you should follow, in order to increase comments and get more traffic.
I always try to engage conversation within the comments below my post. Add in something interesting, like useful information or resources that will help your readers. You can also make questions, as you may learn a lot from your commenters.
In this way, you can increase your audience, and your regulars visitors will exchange opinions.
Use Social Media
Even more now with Google, which is considering social signals as ranking factors, the social media are indeed necessary for those who run an online business or a blog, just for passion.
Social Media is a great way to build relationships, having the possibility to know people of your niche, exchanging opinions and learning from each other.
When you publish a post, share it with your social media accounts. But do not limit yourself to that : you should also try to involve people in a discussion, asking for advice, requesting comments, suggesting topics.
Fulfill a Need
You must not become a slave to all the requests of your visitors, but you should listen to your readers questions. And whenever is possible, write content to satisfy some individual needs.
If these topics are related to the ones of your site, there is nothing wrong. I assure you that the reader can give due weight to these attentions.
If your blog has a huge audience, you can not please everyone, of course. You can try making a good selection, maybe opening a section in your blog devoted to questions.
Do not post once a week, then 5 times in a day, then nothing again within 3 weeks. This is the best way to lose all your readers.
Think about how much time you can dedicate to your blog, and decide the consistency of your posts. Then stick with it.
In order to manage your blog, you should write well and handle with people.
You are a public figure, a point reached by all people with an internet connection. And many of these people seek from you the solution to their problems, perhaps they will find in what you wrote, but they could also send an email to ask you for an opinion or advice.
You should then answer and give your help, obviously within the limits of your skills and resources.
