Make Your Blog Better
Fun fact: There are 4.4 million blog posts published online EVERY SINGLE DAY. If you're thinking, "How in the world could I ever compete with that?" We feel you. Of course, it's not impossible by any means. What you need to know is that millions of those blogs are poorly researched, poorly written, and not very informative. Plus, there are even more blogs that aren't kept up to date. The best way for you to rise above the noise is by providing longer and stronger blogs with informative yet easy-to-digest information. Your goal should be to make blogs that have at least 500 words or more without any fluff.
Optimize Your SEO
Once you have the best content you possibly can, it's time to start optimizing it to make sure it ranks. If you're writing on WordPress, then you have a head start. WordPress uses tools like Yoast SEO to help optimize blogs for best SEO practices. Yoast SEO will help you optimize your posts for the keywords you'd like to rank for. If you're unsure of the keywords you want to rank for, you can use tools like Google's Keyword Planner to find relevant and highly-searched terms.
Get Backlinks from Related Blogs
You should definitely be doing a bit of outreach if you want to drive tons of traffic to your blog and improve SEO. Essentially, once you have written an optimized blog post, you can search for related blogs to insert a backlink to your post. Of course, these related blogs will need value from you, so you need to make sure that you can offer them something in return. If you don't have time to do this, consider automated email outreach or hire a virtual assistant.
To increase the number of visitors to your site, we recommend collecting email addresses. You'll never be able to get people to come back to your site if you aren't collecting emails. There are plenty of incredible tools out there to help you build your email subscriber list, including Hellobar and Mailchimp. You may also choose to use submission forms embedded into your website's interface to collect emails, or pop-ups when someone visits your website.
Enable Push Notifications
Push notifications, whether for mobile or desktop, can keep people returning to your website again and again. Push notifications make it much easier for people to subscribe, as they never have to provide any personal information to do it. While there are many tools out there to create push notifications, we highly recommend checking out Aimtell.
