One of the best ways to get people to want to read your blog is to write content that has an impact on their life...
However, this is actually not that easy to do. What I'd like to do in this article is talk to you about a few ways that you can create a blog that has an impact on your readers.
Step 1 - Research. The very first thing that you should do, before you even create your blog, is to research your niche that you're thinking about pursuing. A couple great ways to do this...My personal favorite is to join a forum that pertains to your niche. What you can do here is look around the forum and figure out what kinds of questions people are asking and what kinds of things people want to know about. You could even go so far as to post a thread in the forum asking them for help.
A second method to do this is to make use of social networking sites like facebook...You can join groups on facebook that have to do with your niche. This is a great way to get information.
Step 2 - Over Deliver. Now that you know EXACTLY what your audience wants to know about, it should be no trouble at all to write blog posts that will be catered directly to your audience. You can do this many ways...You can talk about problems that your audience is having, and then talk about solutions to those problems...You can just be very informational with your posts...You could even go so far as to create step-by-step guides to solve various problems.
This is the most important part of blogging, and this is how you impact your reader.
Step 3 - Call to Action. This is the trickiest part to get right. In each and every blog post you should have some sort of call to action, however, you have to be careful not to just write sales pitches all the time. You've got to balance your selling and your information.
The easiest way to do this is to go ahead and write your posts as if you weren't trying to sell anything, then go back after your done and adding in the salesy stuff.
Step 4 - Learn More! The only way to make consistent sales and consistent income from your blogs is to constantly be providing your readers with up to date information.
This means that you have got to do research pretty regularly to keep up with your niche. If you can offer your readers up to date, unique information, before anyone else does, then you're sure to see success with your blog.
