Get More Readers in 5 Easy Steps

We have all been there, writing and posting well-researched and well-written content, but no one reads it. 


It can feel as though you’re talking to yourself. 


The worst feeling is knowing that your content is how you build trust, but your blog is ignored. 


Making your efforts feel wasted. 


Why You’re Struggling


The reasons you’re not seeing the traffic and growth you’re aiming for could be as simple as these incredibly obvious reasons. 


You’re not posting consistent, compelling blog posts. It is not enough to post content on your blog or website.


The first thing to do is discover what your audience wants or needs to read. 


For example, if your website is about wellness and women’s health, you want to write about those topics.

However, if you post something about foot fungus among men in locker rooms, you’re not reaching your target audience, and thus, you’re missing the mark. 

Not using promise-driven headlines. Often when we post, we create a headline that is clickbait worthy, but it misses the mark when it comes to letting the audience know what they are getting and how they can benefit from reading the article. 


Creating a blog post headline isn’t as simple as writing “How to create…” you have to put some effort into your headline literally. 


Your headline should be clear and easy to figure out. The best tip for headlines is to make your intentions crystal clear.

Again these discovery engines get you in front of the right audience and help you increase exposure.


5. Create a Youtube Channel

Exposure is key, as are diverse ways to present content. Some people love to see short videos that value or benefit their lives.

Others love to read.

Understand how your audiences love receiving their content and provide them with the type of content presentations they seek.

Their brilliant “Fits Everybody” Jeans make you feel as though your $100 plus dollars were worth it because regardless of what is going on in your life, your jeans will always fit.

3. Put the “AMAZING” feature front and center. The feature that they all NEED to know. Call attention to it, highlight it.

Like Good American, again, they are letting you know stress, water weight, or whatever will not affect how your jeans fit.

    Final Thoughts


    Creating a good marketing campaign for your content, product, service, or something else can be easy if you have a plan. 

    Focus on the important benefits that you offer. They cannot be overemphasized, especially in today’s complex market. You’ll gain advantages over the competition as you build relationships and authority. 

    Know the benefits and features of what you’re offering inside and out; trust me, it is critical for anyone with an online business. 

    Remember that benefits are the emotions and experiences each customer enjoys from using a product or service. 

    Each purchase is emotionally driven, which is exactly why benefits have to be stated first. The benefits draw customers in by speaking to their needs. 

    As you write your copy, always ask yourself, “What will the customer get out of this?”
