5 Awesome Strategies to Improve Your Blog

By November 12, 2012 Blog, Blogging No Comments

The most important part of your social media marketing campaign is  your blog and your blog is what holds everything together. Without your blog, no one will really understand your brand or what you stand for. For this reason, it is vitally important that you learn the best strategies to make your blog successful. When you want to attract even more subscribers to your blog you may want to begin by making these few improvements. The important thing to remember is not to rush things and to take everything one step at a time.

Do a Review of Your Niche
Learning who your audience is or knowing what they need is very important. This is because you will need to tailor your content to your market. Know who you are catering to. For instance if your website is about programming, it is fine to use technological jargon that techies use. However if your blog is a Do-It-Yourself type such as how to organize your email, a person who stumbles upon it will become turned off by high-tech words.

Do a Strategy Review
As a blog owner another blog strategy you need to put into effect when it comes to improving your blog is to review your blog’s articles. By doing this, you will be able to see if there is a gap in the content you are providing your audience. Gaps in the content are when you are lacking the impact needed to turn a random person who visited your blog by accident into a customer. Through understanding and analyzing gaps in your content you will be able to turn thoughts that are incomplete, substandard content, and amateur articles into something astounding that will turn your visitors and readers into paying customers.

Getting Your Readers to Return
Making sure that your audience returns to your blog is important. Breaking large articles into tiny bits is a better idea than posting a five-thousand word article. You can divide this into an article series. You might want to post small chunks of the content one at a time. This will be easier to read and make your article easily digestible.  Also, many bloggers are not putting focus on generating content that readers want to read, instead, bloggers publish content that they personally believe will increase rankings. A good idea to figure out what your audience wants to read would be to do research on topics that trend which your audience. Then, begin publishing posts that your readers want to talk about. You can even do this by looking through your comments section and see what your subscribers are saying. Getting involved with your readers and doing the appropriate research will ensure a constant, returning audience.

Kick start Your Blog by Adding Video
If you want a spicier blog that is more interactive, engaging and dynamic, all you need to do is to add video. Adding in posts of vlogging here and there in your blog will make your blog feel more personal. This is because videos ‘show’ your audience who you are and this is something you can never accomplish with just words. Making your next post on your blog a video post using your webcam may just make a difference you never even expected.

Add Links
Include links to any additional information, videos and sources about your blog topic. Photos are a good way to add links as well. Rather than trying to sell anything, it is a better idea to establish trust in your clients through coming across as an expert in a particular topic. This means being a blog that your readers can use as a resource. Thus, links and Meta descriptions are quite important!

As you start implementing he 5 pillars of this blog strategy, you will see your blog viewership go up and more visitors will convert to customers helping you grow your business.
