So, you have been posting good quality articles in your blog and there seems nothing in the world that you could trouble you. But have ever thought of getting closer to your visitors? Do you think that you are trusted by your visitors or your blog is being treated as just another blog with half baked information? If you are unsure about it, it is high time; you should take some time out of your bust schedule and try some of these below mentioned tips that will help you greatly win the love and trust of your visitors.
You may or may not agree with the comments of people, but it is your responsibility to make them know whether you agree with their views or not. Moreover, it will encourage other visitors to pass on their valuable comments onto the posts that will add more value to your website besides helping you grow personal relationship with them.
Your blog need to have a proper about Us page that should be graced by your proper bio. And for god’s sake do not place it at the footer section. People are less likely to scroll down to the end of the page. Rather place it at the header section and believe me, it will help you make a strong impression into visitors that will be translated into a long term relationship.
Have a Social Media Presence:
Since people are connected to Facebook 24X7, it is perfectly logical that you should add facebook page and twitter id there in the blog. If people find your blog really helpful, they will follow you and in some cases, they may help you spread your message by sharing the posts or retweeting it.
This is probably the most powerful option to win the trust of your visitors. Try to offer some freebie in the forms of WordPress theme, PSD file or whatever you like and see how your popularity start spreading like wildfire. This is definitely a great way you can increase number of subscribers to your blog.
Do Q&A sessions:
It is a great idea to participate with the readers in a question answer session. It will help you come in close contact with the readers and if possible, try to offer free consultancy time to time. To hook the attention of the visitors and to make them put your trust on you and your blog, you need to share some secrets and share your personal experience and believe me this will go a long way building up a strong relationship with the readers.
This is great way increasing awareness about your blog. However, I am not asking to be the keynote speaker of a big event or attending some overseas events. Just try to attend some local events related to the niche you are writing and this will help you spread the message with clarity. Once your online presence starts growing bigger and better, you can go for the big events and try to rub shoulders with some bigwigs of the industry.
Try to add a bit variety in your blog by publishing interviews of some known figures rather than publishing the same old tips and tricks in your blog. People are interested about getting real life example and there is no better way to give personal account than publishing interview. Yes, I know it will take some doing but believe me it worth the effort as it will help you immensely increase your reputation.
