If you want to earn money by blogging you may be interested in hearing the answer to the question, “How to Write for Blogs?”
Today I am going to give you 5 practical tips how you can write for your blogs to increase your traffic, engagement, search engine rankings and revenue.
This will help your reader to read your texts. Give them the feeling that there are just two persons, You and the reader.
One successful online entrepreneur Jermaine Griggs gives piano courses on the Internet. He teaches tens of thousands of people from all around the world. Still he can give the personal feeling in his blog posts and video training.
He says for example, “Lay back. Relax. Just you and me.” and then comes the piano training.
Is not a coincidence that this guy is a millionaire.
He is teaching a huge amount of people but still he gives the feeling that there is only he and the student.
Don’t think that you are writing to 1,000 people but think that you are writing to only one person.
It will make your blog more personal.
If you want to earn money with your blog you must be helping people and providing them something valuable. Some beginners in affiliate marketing make the mistake of always trying to sell something without providing any important value.
One useful trick to help your mind to create more useful ideas is to think how would you help your friend. How would you write to your best friend?
Would you sell him/her all the time and try to push all your products in front of him? If you would do that I may ask, how long are you waiting for your friendship to last?
Everyone loves friendly people. People love it when someone helps and does something for them.
We love it when someone gives valuable answers for our questions.
For example, I am thinking sometimes questions like, “How to increase the results in the gym faster?” “How to win in chess?” “How to be a better disciple of Jesus?”
If someone comes and tells me the answers for that kind of questions I’m more than willing to hear.
I am not willing to hear invaluable answers. And neither are other people. So be sure that when you are providing answers that they really answer the questions and give something that isn’t so obvious.
Of course, sometimes “the obvious answers” are good to say out loud because we humans tend to forget the important things. Most of the motivational speeches are just repeating “the obvious things” that people tend to forget in the middle of their busy lives.
This may sound obvious but still some people tend to forget this one. If your blog is about dog training, don’t talk about your journey in Mexico. Okay, you can tell a story about your journey if you can relate it somehow to your actual topic which is dog training.
If you can tell captivating stories, they are always nice! But don’t talk about the subjects that are not related to your website.
For example, my blog is about earning money online and everything related to that topic. I will not write here the articles about language learning or the gym even though they are my other interests. My audience would be bored.
Instead, I concentrate on the topics that are relevant to “make money online” -subject.
Have you ever went to the blog post where the introduction seems to last too long and you just get bored and click for the next post.
I’ve experienced it many times.
Probably the writers are trying to build the momentum but many times the person on the Internet is just finding for the quick answers and you have 10 seconds to convince that you have what he/she is looking for.
