Creating great impact on other bloggers is not an easy task.
You NEED to do something different that no one else is doing. You should also write engaging contents on your blog to gain your readers trust.
Here are 4 surefire ways to create impact and good impression on the blogosphere.
1. You need to be “You”
If there’s one thing that will make your blog a success, it would be definitely “standing out” from the crowd. No one will recognize you if you are writing about what already others are writing on their blogs. I have seen that many new bloggers rehashing the same contents on their blogs which are already covered in the top blogs on their niches.
How can expect your blog going viral when you rehash what others are saying? How can create some impact on blogosphere without being unique and/or offering great value to your readers?
Make sure you are being unique and creating value to your audience by being YOU. “Don’t be afraid to try new things, if you are sharing something that adds value to your readers, go ahead”. That’s the ONLY way to create great impact on your blog readers.
2. Create problem-solving posts
Giving importance to your readers is the first step to your blogging success. Find out who are your target audience and observe their frustrations and problems, then create articles on them.
Jot down the blog post ideas on a file or a notepad, try to solve your own blogging problems and write them down on your blog as blog posts. If you focus on problem solving posts rather than repeating the same things what others are saying, you will definitely have a great edge.
Take quality time, don’t rush to create blog posts. There’s no way you can make your blog going viral without having great contents that solves your readers problems.
Listen to your readers, ask them what problems they are facing, use social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and E-mail marketing to take the feedback from them. Regularly interact with them to build strong connection with them which will help you create great impact on your blogs in the long run.
3. Give importance to readers and search engines
Readers and search engines both are important. You simply can’t ignore both of them, readers will give your blog immense support to buy your products and search engines can bring you more readers in the long run for the potential keywords.
Know your targeted keywords before writing a blog post, write for the readers first, then optimize the contents for the search engines. I don’t suggest anyone to use “keyword stuffing”, instead use long tail keywords to generate quality traffic from the search engines.
You will definitely have more impact on search engines when you use long tail keywords like “blog tips for new bloggers”, instead of using just “blog tips”.
Then build quality back links to your sites either by guest blogging or by writing link baiting posts which will naturally attract other bloggers to link to your posts. This way you can bring great traffic from the search engines in the long run, remember that, search traffic takes time to reach your blog. You simply can’t expect organic traffic flowing to your blog posts the same day you publish.
4. Use social media sites
Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Google+ are top ways to build relationships with other bloggers. No matter how busy you are, spend some time regularly to interact with your readers and the influencers in your niche using these sites.
After all, online businesses need “more visibility” to succeed.
