Hello again ASA friends, so a couple of you have been requesting that I do another blogging tips post, that focuses specifically on how to grow your blog readership. I figured instead of giving you the usual blah blah that you are used to finding on Google Search, I would rather share “5 Reasons Why No One Visits Your Blog” instead and the things you should start doing to change that. These are common things that we are all guilty of doing that can easily be changed by a simple change in mindset. I hope this is helpful and worth the read, here goes:
1. Your content is not shareable: Every time you write something new for your blog ask yourself this simple question, ” Would I share this across my social media?” If your answer is no then what makes you think anyone else would? One of the key ways to get more people visiting your blog is by making sure the content on it is easily discover-able across all networks and this will only happen when more people share your content and thus helping you reach new audiences. Always make sure your content is designed to share. A simple thing that has helped me grow my blog audience is making sure every now and again I ask my readers to give me suggestions or their opinions on certain topics turning the posts into a two way conversation that makes people comfortable enough to want to get involved in.

This builds a loyal follower base that ends up spreading a positive word about your blog on these online streets and ends up bringing you more traffic. Every time I respond to people who engage with me on a regular I find that they end up sharing my content more. Always show the people who support you appreciation they are the ones that will bring in the major traffic you want to your blog. Also don’t send automated responses I personally unfollow people who send out automated responses, if you are not going to do it right then don’t bother at all. Continue reading
