You don’t have any money? Don’t worry out of the 13 ways only one of them requires you to invest money.
They can all be used in combination with each other and is something I highly advise you to do.
Now let’s take a look at…
13 Simple Ways To Attract People To Your Blog
1. Optimizing Headlines
People often underestimate how important a well-crafted headline can be and just randomly type something. This is the biggest mistake you can ever make in your quest to get more blog visitors. Your headline is the most important part of your content that decides if it gets read.
After learning about copywriting I’ve learned a few ground rules regarding creating an effective headline. Here are some of these ground rules.
- The headline should include the main benefit
- Uneven numbers
- Invoke curiosity
- Show the content is relevant
- Spice it up
This doesn’t only apply to the blog post you’re going to create. You can change all the headlines of your old posts so you can get more visitors through those posts too.
2. Try Out Giveaways To Motivate Readers To Spread The Word
A great way to get more blog visitors is to get the people who already are on your blog to help you. You can stimulate them to do this by doing giveaways.
You see these things happen on social media platforms all the time so I see no reason you can’t do the same with your blog.
Something along the of “get 3 people that are interested in this content to sign up to my email list and you’ll get a custom made…” you can fill in the dots yourself.
3. Add Social Share Buttons So People Can Share Your Content
Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of less well-known blogs and I’ve found more than a few gems of which I’m certain they’ll become popular in the next few years, but there’s one mistake I saw some of them made that can slow down their progress.
They don’t have any social buttons on their blogs.
Social proof is a real thing. The moment somebody you don’t know shares your content other people they know might click on it purely because it was shared which means it contains value.
Also if you can see how much it has been shared and it’s a high amount it gives you a lot of credibility.
4. Comment on other blogs
Commenting on other peoples blog can have a huge effect on getting other people to your blog. The moment you do this on a consistent basis you can create relationships with other bloggers which opens up doors for you.
- You can collaborate with them
- Build backlinks which helps your SEO
- People will read your comments and if they see your website link portrayed in the comments they might click on it and look at your content.
5. Use PPC marketing (pay-per-click)
Over 40.000 searches are performed on Google every second that a lot of potential customers that are searching for content just like what you are creating.
The problem is most of them only look at the websites on the first page of Google and it takes a lot of time to rank high enough to get on the first page.
Pay-Per-Click makes it possible to get your website on the first page instantly by paying money for it. With PPC marketing you’ll get charged every time someone clicks on your website.
PPC marketing has helped a lot of companies get off the ground. It’s a really great investment if you know what you’re doing.
6. Influencer marketing Is Very Effective
This is probably the most effective way to get people to read your blog. Influencers have a huge audience sometimes consisting of millions of people.
If you’re in the same niche as the influencer or you can provide value to their audience they can share your content.
There is a big chance their audience will at least look at your content purely because it was presented to them by the influencer they were following.
7. Repurposing Content Can Do Wonders
A great way to get more visitors to your website without spending too much energy on research for new content it to repurpose your old content.
You might have a blog post that you can turn into a YouTube video, an infographic or an audio clip.
for example let’s say you have a blog post called “10 Tips To Help You With Writing More Quality Posts In Less Time.” and you take that content and turn it into a video where you only give tips and tell them they can get the other 5 tips on your website you can attract a lot of people to your blog.
The more content you have on your blog the more you can do this.
8. Try Becoming A Member Of Facebook Groups
Facebook groups can be an excellent way to attract people to your blog. You just have to find facebook groups that are in your niche. They’ll more likely see the value in your posts and visit them.
Before you do that I have one thing to say. Don’t spam the facebook groups with your blog posts because that’s a great way to get kicked out of the facebook group.
Your goal should be to become a part of the community and gain its trust. If you’re an actual part of the community your posts won’t be seen as spam but as valuable content.
9. YouTube Has A Lot Of Traffic You Can Drive To Your Blog
YouTube is a great way to attract people to your blog. I have to admit YouTube isn’t what it once was.
You can’t just put random videos on it anymore and expect people to watch it but you can get a lot of value out of it if you know what you’re doing.
You’ll have to learn about YouTube SEO and get a YouTube tool such as Tubebuddy or VidIQ.
10. Medium The Writing Platform That Can Get You Noticed
Medium is a platform for writers on which they can post their content on. I discovered this website when I was watching YouTube video on the Gary Vaynerchuk channel.
This guy has one of the biggest digital marketing agencies in the world and he is still using medium.
The moment I found out about that I knew it had value. Medium is an excellent tool to use to build your brand and direct traffic to your website.
Try it for yourself.
11. Guest Posting Will Get Eyes On Your Content
Guest posting is a great marketing strategy to use to get people to your blog. There are a lot of blogs out there in your niche with people that have never seen your content.
Guest posting gives you the chance to show them your content.
They might see your content on a blog they’re already subscribed to and see the link to your website underneath.
This is most of the time a win-win situation for you and the owner of the blog you’re posting on.
They don’t have to spend as much time on creating content and you get to market your website.
So these are my tips for attracting people to your blog.
