In another usual chit-chat session, I have found myself stumped when my fellow blogger blurted out that though his blog has over 5,000 fans on the Facebook fan page, in reality, none of them know him personally. This is a pathetic reduction of a blogger to a non-entity. What is the purpose of being a blogger when the people around you do not even know you or have little idea of your day job? If you are in this vicious circle, you are sure to miss opportunities galore that may befall you when you least accept. So, if you wish to earn reorganization and have the limelight right on you, you need to follow the following tips:
Tips To Make Your Blog Readers Trust You
You simply cannot expect that there will be some kind of divine intervention and your readers will be automatically informed about who you are and what you do. Well, God is still not that benevolent and I fear, you might have to take the responsibility and make people aware of, who you are and what you do. And you would not have to do anything crazy for that. Just a simple About Us page will do that. All you need to do is to make it look like a good photo of yours and give detailed information about your professional and personal life and there you.
Answer Back to Emails and Comments
Do not be rude and do not be evil either. You need to take some time out of your busy schedule and try to reply to comments people have left on your website. Take it this way, if visitors can take the pain of going through the entire post and then comment something nice or otherwise, it is your responsibility to reply to them. By doing so, you will be able to encourage them and they may try to gather more information about who you are and what you do.
Publish Something About You
Do not make your post look like a self-promotion thing. No one is going to read that rather you can post something inspired by your personal experience. This will draw the attention of the visitors and they will come to know who you are without coercing them or pushing them. The storytelling method is a proven effective way of grabbing the attention of the visitors and you give it a while writing in a conversational note.
Social Media Presence
Your social media presence has to be more than just impressive. An ordinary presence can undo the entire effort. Your blog needs to have links to your social media profiles and the other way round and try to gather as many likes and retweets for your posts. This will increase the exposure of your posts to a great extent and you will see more visitors coming to your website from all walks of life.
Attending an event is one of the most popular ways of making your presence felt in the blogosphere. It gives enormous scope to get in touch with bloggers coming from all walks of life and when you will take on the dais, you will have all the eyes hooked on you. Prepare a fiery speech and there you go.
Try these small tips and believe me, you are going to see some dramatic difference.
