5 Tips to Turn Everyday Traffic to Loyal Followers

Loyal ReadersThe World Wide Web continues to grow at a dizzying rate everyday. Getting readers to notice your blog and keeping them coming back is becoming more and more difficult. But if you’re new to blogging, don’t despair. Everybody has to start somewhere. Try these tips and you’ll surely breathe some new life into your blog.

1. Reply to comments and don’t just ignore e-mails

Having a blog is a personal way of communicating to the rest of the world, at least to those parts that have internet access. Communication is a two-way street and could not happen if you’re not responding to comments and e-mails that they send. Replying to these make them feel more valued and will make it easier for them to spread the news of how great a blogger you are.

2. Post it, tweet it, and spread the news

Getting more traffic is all about connecting to as many people as possible. And what better to reach out to audiences than to post it on Social Media. Post your blog updates on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. Your friends can significantly increase the blog visits that you get. Use Twitter and put a hash tag on your entry’s keywords. This way, your tweet will be visible to all users worldwide.

3. Don’t just share your blog—share yourself

You might think that people are just interested in the latest trending topics. You might be tempted to blog mostly about the hottest news in your niche. This may get you in the mainstream but does not show much about your personal side. A lot of successful bloggers write about personal topics: silly, serious and funny stuff. By opening their personal side, they are able to establish a more personal relationship with their readers.

4. Throw away some freebies

Everybody loves free stuff. Giving freebies rewards loyal readers and attract more to your doorstep. E-books, blog themes, and coupons are just some of the freebies that you can easily give without breaking the bank. Subscriber’s love being pampered and appreciated so if there’s something you could pull out from that magic hat, then throw it your readers’ way.

5. Join blogger parties

Spend some time outside your desktop. Bloggers are entitled to a personal life and blogger parties are some of the most fun activities you can join in. These occasions can also be your opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and readers. You can invite your most loyal readers and reward them a great time for giving life to your blog. Remember, it does not have to be a wild college party. A simple, quiet gathering will do the job.

  1. Blogging is one of the correct directions to communicating with all the peoples in the web. And, its really great way to spread news into the wide. At the time, social media plays best way to reach out to the audience side on here. Thanks a lot for sharing your post on here 🙂

  2. Answering to comments transforms your post from a monologue into a dialogue, so who want to be in a monologue? This is why i really don't get bloggers who don't allow comments on their posts, or close comments, can someone explain?

  3. Throwing away some freebies is definitely a good suggestion. But, how can one get sponsors for such freebies, if your site is not big one?

  4. Freebies is one of the way to go. I usually get software vendors contacted and ask for freebies for my readers. I even write my own eBook and give it away to get more readers to my blog.

  5. Really awesome post and the point are really useful.I totally agree with the commenting point as I am also a new blogger and I see that the comments are really useful to increase the traffic

  6. yes suzzane.your every point is nice.5 points are very cool.i will always respond to my comments.

  7. It's nice to let our followers or readers feel how much we appreciate them. This shouldn't be a one way street and we should go that extra mile if we are to keep that traffic going our way.
