Attracting Audiences Towards Your Blog

by Nasrul Hanis · 6 comments

In fact your blog is nothing without audience. Writing without nobody to read and use the things that you write means that you are just writing a diary. Nobody will read, share or use it.

Discovering new content and material is a challenging thing but what more challenging is how to attract audiences to go towards your blog. Let’s see some of the tips on how to do so.

Integrate Posts with Your Life

Integrate your daily life with your posts. However your content about your daily life must be related to your niche for example if you are writing about exercise tips, share with the audiences on how your do exercise everyday. You can create short videos to be attached with your articles. The audiences will feel closer to you. A good example for this tips is ZenHabits by Leo Babauta. Take a look on how he integrates his daily life with the message that he want to convey and share with the audiences.

Share Things

Blogging is about sharing. And sharing is caring! Sharing the things that you know and learned in your life is something valuable for your audiences. Believe it or not, the readers love to see the human feeling inside the contents that they read and consume. And some readers love to read stories. Let your audience know and understand what you want to tell them so you have to do a good approach – a sharing approach. Give knowledge and inspiration to your readers and they will appreciate it. There will be a possibility where they will recommend your blog to their friends and this is how viral strategy works.

Be Consistent

The most important thing to do is to be consistent. Encourage the audiences to visit your blog regularly by consistently providing content for them. Try to update your blog at least once a week and try to be consistent in updating your blog so your readers can have “specific day” to read your blog. By doing this you can wrap up any significant updates related to your niche every week and get your readers’ attention.

Hello Nasrul,
I agree with you that must integrate your daily life, share knowledge, and update your blog weekly to attract and retain readers.

Yes Russell,
By integrating your life with your content, your points will be more “alive” and the readers can feel it too 😀

I like the idea of having daily updates, I’ve seen this quite a bit on the graphics sites I follow eg Texture – tuesday (working on a similar theme to Follow Friday @twitter) Its great idea if you can have key days for set themes.

I would also add to the blog post some SEO ‘must do’ techniques and may be a feature on good content

I’m thinking more I don’t care so much why they are leaving, but I care at why they are not arriving, still an interesting post

hey Nasrul,

That approach is very effective, of course when we post articles it must be our own ideas and share are experiences too, so that you can prove to your reader that it is very effective what might your post be, and consistency should always be there to assist..
