Want More Engagement? How To Write Better Blog Posts

Want More Engagement? How To Write Better Blog Posts

Let’s start off with a story, shall we?

You come up with a great set of blog post ideas for the month ahead and you’re SO excited to get blogging. You write them all and feel super happy when you keep hitting that publish button. 

But then...nothing. There’s nothing. No comments, no shares, no engagement.

What did you do wrong?

Hear me out - for someone to take action from your blog posts (in other words, for someone to engage with them), they need to feel something. 

There’s got to be some sort of emotion coming through the words on their screen for them to share or connect with your content. They might feel entertained, inspired, uplifted - it could be anything.

If your blog posts aren’t getting your readers to evoke an emotion each time you hit publish, this could be the problem. It might be that your ideas need a little more clarity, or maybe your language just needs to be a bit more enthusiastic.

Worried about what to do next? Don’t be. Below are four great tips to help you get more engagement, write better blog posts and watch your online presence shine.

HOW TO GET READERS TO COME BACK TO YOUR BLOG (MY TOP ADVICE)

HOW TO GET READERS TO COME BACK TO YOUR BLOG (MY TOP ADVICE)

Having a blog is such a powerful marketing tool.

You can use it to attract new readers and clients, as well as establish your authority and increase the visibility of your online presence.

But how do you create a blog that readers want to come back to? Well, my friend, you’ll find that there are four special ingredients involved. In today’s post, I’m going to talk you through them and how they can skyrocket engagement with your audience.

As a blogger, you might think you’re doing well already. Your writing is of a high standard and you’re posting regularly. But are you actually encouraging reader interaction? Is the purpose of your blog clear?

If a blog is difficult to navigate, or readers can’t find what they’re looking for quickly, they’ll leave. What might look good on the outside isn’t nearly as good once a reader digs in.

There’s one thing that a lot of blogs lack that we don’t even realise - there’s no way for readers to quickly see whether a blog is worth reading.

This is where these four secret ingredients come in. Keep an eye on these four features of your blog and it will be the most successful marketing tool you’ve ever used.

#1 | CONTENT

Content is essentially the foundation of any blog. It’s the element that encompasses everything your blog is about. If your content isn’t good and doesn’t service your readers, they won’t come back to your blog.

Create each piece of content with your readers in mind. If a reader isn’t interested, entertained or inspired, they won’t come back. They won’t subscribe to your community. They won’t join your Facebook. They won’t purchase something from you.

Your content is the main opportunity you have to really get inside the mind of your audience. You want to become the go-to person for your particular niche.

Think about when people search the web. There are two main reasons people do this: to learn something or to be entertained. 

9 OF THE MOST POWERFUL WAYS TO RECLAIM YOUR MOTIVATION

9 OF THE MOST POWERFUL WAYS TO RECLAIM YOUR MOTIVATION

The idea behind today’s post comes because of a little bit of Twitter research.

You see lately, I’ve seen quite a few of you struggling with the time of the year. It’s getting towards the end of summer, the weather is changing and lots of people seem to have lost their motivation.

There’s nothing wrong with this. We all get stuck in a rut sometimes, whether it’s work, our personal life or something else.

A couple of weeks ago, my motivation disappeared completely, but since then, it’s come back fighting. So from someone who’s been there, this is how to slowly but surely reclaim your motivation.

And the best bit? Each time your motivation decides to disappear, you can come back to this post. Win!

#1 | Read a Motivational Book

The right book can change your life. And I don’t mean the fiction book that’s top of the charts right now. You need to pick a book with purpose that’s going to make a difference.

The book that changed everything for me was Make It Happen by Lara Casey. When I started reading this, I was at a place in my life where I felt so confused about which path was right for me. I didn’t know what to do or which direction to go in.

This book gave me the courage to make that decision. It gave me clarity. It taught me that we all have a purpose and instead of waiting, it’s up to us to make things happen.

Read it. Or read something similar. I promise, it’ll work wonders.

9 GUARANTEED WAYS TO GROW YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNT LIKE CRAZY

Get ready. Today, we’re talking all about Twitter.

The last time I wrote a blog post about Twitter was a good few months ago. Since then, I’ve learnt so much. Not only have I increased my own referral traffic, followers and engagement like crazy, but for my clients too! So much so that in just two months, my results have more than doubled.

When I say “guaranteed ways” to grow your Twitter account, I really do mean guaranteed ways to grow your online presence and traffic.

With Twitter, it’s true that the more followers you have the better. But it’s not all about that. Engagement is key. I’m talking likes, retweets, mentions, link clicks. What you don’t want is loads of followers but low engagement. 

I’m going to show you how you can have both.

One of the first things you need to remember is that Twitter is meant for conversation. That means you need to be active, positive and engaging.

By doing this, you can get your tweets in front of people who don’t even know you exist yet but will soon become your biggest fans (your target audience!)

If you’re completely new to Twitter or you’ve lost touch with the platform, I’m here to teach you how to set up your profile for success.

For starters, this is a post for you to read in your spare time.
