Remember the sayings that content is king? Well you should know now that quality content can make a blog popular or dig it someplace in the large blogosphere. Killer content can help you build a brand, goodwill, money and most of all popularity. I have scavenged the web for a few techniques, which if you could follow could make your blog reach popularity.
Writing a Tutorial
Learning is the key to success and the web is filled with loads of information, sorted and unsorted. Writing a blog post in form of a tutorial could help you gain loads of readers.
You can get inspirations from popular tutorial blogs and how they deliver content. Be sure to use good and easy words and images, as images are very effective.
Infographics are Key
These days’ infographics are getting very popular. Every other site these days are using infographics to attract users and thus it proves my point in the above Key Point that images are now getting very important and really beneficial for users and SEO as well.
It is really great that infographics capture a lot of data in just one image and thus really a key factor to attract reader. Users don’t lose their attention and the message gets through conveniently.
Videos were thought to be very important when used for marketing of products or services but these days videos can help you gain a lot of attention and it a key tool for user engagement.
Falling prices of technology can help you create a video for almost no cost at all. Just head over buy a small HD video camera and make a video.
Also note that videos can help you create mediums for promotions that are video placement on Youtube, Videmo and more.
Launch a Podcast
Since radio has gone out of fashion and people are getting really busy. They now do not have time to read posts but with podcasts users can listen to your blog posts while working on other things as well.
Podcasts don’t have to be limited to your post or content. There can be other things as well such as:
- Interviews of key people like designers or bloggers;
- Discussions on current events;
- Singing songs and more…
Podcasts can be promoted on iTunes, your website and even video sites like Youtube, Vimeo and more.
Create an Ebook
Ebooks are usually though to be old school and not a source of traffic any more. But this is a common mistake and a myth. E Marketing people still make thousands of dollars a month just writing ebooks and promoting them for free.
An ebook can cover any subject and the best part is that it can be very easy to make:
- Compilation of the best content of your website;
- Creating a series of tutorials;
- A popular case study;
Promotions of eBooks can now be done on authority sites like Scribd and even on social icons.
Your content is your product and can be a time-consuming process but rest assured like all hard work done, all investments in form of time or money will give high returns.
Good Luck and God Speed.
