One way to increase your website traffic is to write engaging posts. It does not only entice your readers, but it also keeps them glued to your blog. Additionally, engaging posts are also informational, inspiring and original. But how do you that? Well, continue reading below to find out how to do it.
With the current world of social media, online influencers play a significant role in controlling what people buy, read, and use. Many people for example freelancers and writers will be drawn to your content if it involves one or more of the internet stars. People respect and trust influencers more than anyone else. Include them in your posts by tagging them, or writing something in their area of interest. And don’t forget to add a social share button to make sharing easy. Ever wonder how famous bloggers got to where they are? It is because they wrote and still write engaging posts and mention the influencers in their niche.
Include videos and pictures
We all love watching videos because they to some extent appear to be realistic. By using videos and images in your posts, you certainly make your audience to love your writing even more. We tried this a few days ago, and we found that posts with images caught the interest of our audience as compared to those posts that did not have one. There are some tools that you can easily use to create videos and images in your content.
Write engaging posts by using keywords wisely
While keywords are important for SEO, it is imperative that you do not stuff your posts with them. The keywords help your reader to stay on track as he continues to go through your article. They make the article flow nicely and easy to follow making your audience to engage with you in the end.
Use interesting titles
This is where most writers fail. You write an excellent post, but the article is not catchy. Even before one gets to read it and engage with you, he is scared away by the title because it looks dull. Write a catchy and exciting title for example What happens if you spam your posts with keywords? Someone who has been making this mistake will be interested to know more.
Engaging content doesn’t mean focusing on writing posts with images, but it also means sharing stories of a successful individual in that niche. For example, it can be, How James earned $100 million from one engaging post. Even from the title, someone will be interested to know more about this blogger or writer. You can also share your own experience. It is common to find many who write engaging content, but more they don’t remember this one element.
People love to read about facts. When you blog about something, make sure you give evidence. If you said about the evolution of technology, ensure you provide links that will confirm the information from the relevant website. This will make your site more credible.
Write what appeals to your audience
Don’t bore your audience by writing something that is in the past and does not appeal to them. Write something that is current, and that may be of use to them. This will keep them coming to know what is happening currently and what is the way ahead. For example, if you write about the increase in people using social media, this will interest your audience to know why the upsurge. If they are not using social media, your posts might inspire them to move to platforms of their choice.
Writing is all about interesting content. Sharing is also part of drawing people to visit your website and check out what you have for them. You can boost traffic to your site if you write engaging posts.
