Blogging is a powerful way to develop your online business. A good blog will attract more customers and keep relationships with your current customers.
For your blog to be successful you need to continually work to increase your blog readership and keep your audience interested so they keep coming back for more. Here are 7 ways to increase your blog readership.
1. Post On A Regular Basis
Your blog readership will grow and stay interested when you post relevant, high-quality content on a regular basis. Use a range of styles like images, video and text to keep your blog interested in what you have to say. This will keep coming back, sharing and engaging with you.
2. Be Controversial
People love a bit of controversy. It can be risky so be careful of the potential consequences. Comment on situations that makes you angry, sad, and upset. But, try to end it on an optimistic note if possible.
3. Put A Subscribe Button On The Page
A great way to increase your blog readership is to put an email opt-in box on your page. When people sign up, you can simply email them when you have posted new content. Give them some extra benefits of signing up and more people will subscribe.

4. Use Images
People get bored without interesting things to look at. Infographics, graphics and charts are a great way to engage with your audience. People like to share good images with other people. The more shares you get, the more people see your blog and the more you will increase your blog readership. Piktochart.com is a great resource for building infographics and canva.com makes it easy to create images for your blog, website or social media audience.
5. Offer A Content Upgrade
A content upgrade is where you provide bonus content in exchange for someone subscribing to your email list. The content upgrade needs to be relevant to the material your blog visitor is reading. If they like the blog post, they'll want more info from you.
6. Use More Video
Video is one of the best ways to build an audience as it helps you to connect with your readers. They see your face and feel as if they know you. You can create video very easily by just using your phone and some decent lighting.
7. Ask For A Comment
A great way to get your audience to act and come back for more is to generate more comments to your posts. You can get people to comment more if you ask them to.
