You only have a few seconds to capture the attention of your target audience. Think about the books you’ve began and the articles you’ve read in the past. Through the first few sentences, people will decide whether they want to spend more time to read your content. With so much articles posted on the web, you can’t expect people to invest so much of their time trying to overcome a tepid introduction.
Despite the intense competition, some people were able to generate thousands of laser-targeted visitors to their sites. If you’ve ever wondered how they did that, then you’re in for a real treat.
Here are some tips to help you generate fresh content and increase the popularity of your site.
Find other blogs to read
Set aside 10 minutes of your time browsing through other blogs in the same niche. This will help ensure that you have fresh content ideas when you’re ready to sit down and create new contents for your site. Take what you find and make it even better.
Don’t be afraid to dedicate more time everyday to read other’s blog posts. Mind you, the best writers spend majority of their time reading and learning how to inject different voices into their work.
If you’ll be hanging out on the same platforms as your competitors, there’s a good chance that you’ll be writing the same old stuff.
Pinterest actually drives more traffic as compared to Youtube, LinkedIn and Google+. So, focus there and use it for content mining.
Pinterest pins are ranked according to likes, comments and repins. So, keep an eye out for topics with the most number of repins.
Check the comments section
If you have an active community on your blog, then make it a point to read the comments.
Your site should focus on your visitor’s interest and address the question of what’s in it for them. By listening to what others have to say, you’ll be able to pick up some ideas to write for your next blog post.
However, if no one is commenting on your posts, we suggest reading the comments on other blogs within the industry.
