With all the benefits that come with blogging, new blogs are springing up every single day. But, how do you make your blog stand out from the crowd? How do you write engaging blogs that get potential clients to subscribe to your services? Keeping in mind that all sorts of blogs are out there, it is difficult (but not impossible) to come up with a blog that sells something that is unique only to you. This means that the competition for clients is tough, and you have to use all levels of creativity to run a successful blog.
Here are some top tips on how to run the most engaging blogs:
- Create room for interaction
All successful blogs have one thing in common; they are very interactive. If you want to attract more potential clients and make them stay, you have to keep them entertained.
Engage them in your conversations. Encourage them to give feedback on their experience with your products and services. Leave room for them to comment on your blog posts and previous blog posts. Create room for them to share their stories and personal experiences. Once you make them feel free to express themselves, they are here to stay.
- Launch your products and services
Most newbies who venture into blogging always go wrong on this one thing; they wait too long to launch their products and services. They get tricked by the illusion of a magic number.
Stop waiting for 1,000, 10,000 subscribers or whatever number you have in mind. Stop thinking that no one will buy your products; just get yourself out there and start selling. Even if no one buys at first, you will learn from your mistakes and strategize on how to re-launch the product.
- Find your niche
Don’t just start a blog because your friend is doing it; write about something that you are passionate about. If you are well-conversant with politics, then start a blog about politics. Find that one thing that you are very passionate about and start a blog about it.
You are much more likely to write engaging blogs when you are within your niche. This will also make it easier for you to connect with your audience. When you pour your heart out on paper, your audience will feel it too, and that personal connection will keep them coming.
- Format your work to make it more appealing
Try playing around with colors and fonts to make your blog as attractive as possible, but don’t let this interfere with your content. When writing reviews you may want to include bullet points so as to make it easily readable, like in the following example, Noopept Review: Side Effects, Dosage and Beginner’s Guide.
- Listicles always sell
A listicle is an article that is composed of a list. Examples of listicles include top 5 reasons why….., 8 ways in which……, 10 ideas on….. 4 best remedies for….etc. You can also write instructional articles since DIYs also sell a lot.
Writing engaging blogs should not be a daunting task anymore. If you are not good at writing, don’t hesitate to hire a professional writer. It is worth spending $50 on a writer for an article that can earn you $500 a month in years to come.
Also, whenever possible, it is advisable to mention the names of celebrities who are known for what you are writing about. For example, you can write a blog on “How to be a successful golfer like Tiger Woods.”
