By forming a personal influence on your blog or website, you have to put yourself out there to some degree. You have to make the content you create come from the heart, that’s what readers want and it’s immediately obvious when an article is fabricated or just for views.

Just by offering a friendly tone to your blogs can get you an extremely long way when it comes to how you come off to your readers.

Creating this kind of call to action will be what reminds people to interact. This kind of important need from blogger to reader will motivate the reader to express their thoughts as well. Start by adding a call to action to your blogs, ask for opinions and thoughts, this will lead to shares and more and more people telling friends about the particular blog they read. Another great way to influence a conversation from you blog is to engage with your readers and supporters on social media!

When you show your readers how to create something, not only will they trust you more as a writer, but it will also make a bigger memorable impact.

Make sure your site and each of your blogs are involved with SEO, take a moment to jot down and research some of the hottest keywords that have to do with your subject matter you write about frequently online. If you include these keywords naturally in your blogs, you’ll show up more and more online. A recent CopyPress article says: [Marketer] Neil Patel did A/B testing on his site and found that his homepage with 1,292 words led to more leads – better leads – than a second web page with only 488 words. Why? The content on this page answered questions that were commonly asked from customers. He was already solving their problems before they even bought his product! The word count wasn’t the deciding factor as much as what was actually being said. If you remember how to utilize SEO, you’ll notice a spike in how many people find your work, which will lead to growth in your audience and just how far our reach spreads every month of posting regularly.
No matter what route you choose to take, there are so many options out there when it comes to how you want to share your opinion and how you want others to find those thoughts online. It is very important to make your blog attractive. The most important thing to remember is that certain things take time. Fame doesn’t happen overnight, but the more you pursue this kind of career path, the more you’ll realize just how important every step has been until that end goal you’ll eventually reach.
