With new blogs adding up to the blog-o-sphere, it’s not that easy for you to keep readers engaged with your blogs. If you add a personal touch to your topic and look for ways to keep your blog readers engaged, you can be sure that they will come back to your blog for more.
Keep the content fresh
Many bloggers will create content that are all alike or just not informative. Posts should be composed well and carry valuable information.
Bloggers often show interest about a subject or perhaps are sometimes being pad as per the word count. Regardless of the reasons, creating long articles should be avoided.
With our busy lifestyles, it’s hardly possible for anybody to take time and read a long article. Hence, it becomes necessary to keep your content short, and to the point. Readers are more likely to lose their interests after seeing multiple posts over 1,500 words.
Respect your readers’ comments
Every reader possesses the desire to be listened and acknowledged. This is why they are so anxious to voice their opinions even when they are not expected to do so. Respond to your readers’ comments regularly. This makes them feel that you value their input. Sometimes it may not be possible to respond to all the comments, but make sure to respond to those which have something to do with your post. This encourages your readers to keep coming back and also help in building relationship with other people in your niche.
Add personal touch
Add a personal touch to your blog posts by creating stories about other people’s experiences, your ideas and what the crowd has to say. Personal examples are always of great interest for the readers since they give a unique angle.
Requires Extensive research
A well researched article should be supported with facts and statics. This makes the post more engaging and compelling than a one with inactive and usual content. Thus, try to devote much time in thoroughly researching your topic. This way you’ll be able to deliver that information to your audience before your competitors would take the chance.
Variety is important
Readers often get bored of going through the same thing over and over again. It’s a great idea to post an unusual topic from time to time. It allows you to create fun fact-filled articles and keep your readers engaged. It also keeps you relaxed from researching serious topics. If your readers like your writing style, they will be motivated to see what different things you can do. Don’t overdo this as this may drive some readers towards more serious blogs.
Host giveaways on your blog
There are a number of interesting ways to really engage your blog readers. One of them is to offer freebies or giveaways on your blog. Offer eBooks or a product that you are going to giveaway on your blog. Ask your readers to add comments on your blog to avail the offer. You can also organize a contest by asking questions and mention that the names of winners will be mentioned in your blog posts. So this keeps the readers to revisit your post.
