You need to think carefully about what type of reader you will like to have reading your posts.

Now that you have figured out what type of reader you will like to attract to your blog, now you must find out where those kind of readers are online.

Now start a list of where they could be, I recommend listing top 3 of these platforms:

  • Whats blogs they’re reading.
  • Forums
  • Podcasts
  • Social Networks
  • What accounts are they following on social network.

Once you have figured out, where you readers are gathering then it is advised to interact with your readers and give them helpful content on other platform, you will then build a trust, and with that trust you can channel your readers to your blog.

Remember it is vital to build a presence, to create new relationships, to add more value to your blog.

 

  • Engage with readers

 

A continuum of focus upon creating great content and finding your readers, you will start to see more and more people visiting your blog and interacting with your content.

Now at this level you will need to focus on interacting with the readers and build your own community.

This means responding to comments, email readers personally by all means necessary to keep them coming back for more.  

And always have your first day readers back, because they will spread the word of your blog, and that means more readers and more traffic.

Also having a engaged reader is easy to make money from, because they feel like they know you, and trust you, because of your helpful content.
