I’m a marketer. I want to grow my blog, so I spend hours reading articles on how to write better content and work smarter not harder. The problem is, no one reads this stuff! People are too busy working their 9-5 jobs or browsing Facebook for latest updates from friends and family. It’s frustrating because social media has made it easy for anyone with a computer to become an online marketer – but marketing yourself isn’t as easy as just submitting your website URL into search engines like Google. In this post, we’ll go over 5 reasons why people may be ignoring your blog posts and what you can do about it!
If you are like many bloggers, then you might have realized that no one is reading your posts. This is because:
- Do not write about things that people already know. There are a lot of posts on “different things to do in xyz place” so you have to get more specific. For example, if you are writing travel blog, make your post more specific and provide some value. For example, “best places for spicy food in Denver” is a much more specific post with value for the readers who put that inquiry into Google.
- To get readers to your blog, you need to put links on other people’s blogs. To do this, you have to be friends with them and give them a guest post where they can put a link to your site.
- Haven’t built a relationship with your readers. You need to have a button on your website that asks for an email address. This way you can contact the people who visit your site. You can also post on blogs and tell people you have new posts by using social media connections. People will want to read your content and share it with others if they like it.
- Your site does not look good. If people come to your website and they see something that looks like the screen from Pac Man, then they will leave the page quickly. But if you have a blog post about Pac Man, then that would be cool. Your site needs to look professional and it needs to have a clean design on it (for mobile users).
- You are trying to get too literary with your post. You need to use shorter sentences and paragraphs, and add pictures for people to understand what you are saying. If you write the posts too long, people will find it hard to read them all. You also need to balance the length of posts with how readable they are for readers.
Conclusion paragraph: Here are five things you can do to improve your blog posts. 1) Write about something people find helpful, 2) Open doors so that they know how and where to get started with what you’re writing, 3) Build relationships by making it clear why the reader should care about what you have to say, 4) Make sure that your site looks good on whatever screen or device our readers use, 5) Try not be too literary- just write in a conversational tone.
