Do you find it hard to get people interacting with your blog? Would you love to know what your readers are thinking but you're unsure about how to get them answering those burning questions? Well, I've put together 5 tips I think might help you get people talking on your blog.
5 Ways to Get People to Interact More with Your Blog
Think about how you end a post if you ask your readers a question they are more likely to think up a response to you. After all, if you end with a blunt finishing line it can often seem like there is nothing more to add, while a question can easily help get the conversation flowing.
Set up a Quiz
If you are looking for feedback or just wondering if your blog has got people interested. A quiz could offer you the answer. This user-friendly quiz maker can help you learn more about the people who are frequenting your website, allowing you to tailor content better to their needs and in turn, offering more of a conversation starter.
Utilise Social Media
A high proportion of us frequent social media multiple times a day and if we see something pop up on our timeline we think friends would be interested in we share it. I've often heard blog readers say they drop a comment on the social media share of a post rather than on the post itself, as it's just their way of connecting with people. So when someone tweets you, tweet them back!
Make Your Blog User-Friendly
Remember those quizzes up there, Typeform can also help you find what people do and don't like about your website. So why not make up a form allowing people to leave your anonymous comments about what they think of your blog?
For instance, you may be surprised to learn while people love social media, they aren't so keen on using it to comment on your blog. And most people certainly don't want to have to sign up to yet another service to leave a comment. So make sure you turn on guest comments, if you need to moderate first, you might just you suddenly get an increase in replies.
Write Good Content
This one is probably obvious to most, but it surprises me the number of bloggers who still aren't producing good content. By that I mean people still don't do simple checks on spelling and grammar (and before anyone starts with but I'm not very good, hey neither am I! I'm dyslexic). I ask family and friends to check things for silly (and not so silly) mistakes before I hit publish. As I'm very aware that if the first sentence of any post reads badly, no one is going to read on.
So there you have 5 ways to get people to interact with your blog more. Have I forgotten any tips you think are a must include?
