How To Get Blog Readers? 8 Proven Ways!

Sharing is caring!

With as many blog writers worldwide as there are (more than 20 million sites), I absolutely get why there are competitors. You want to stick out. You want to be unforgettable. You want to get blog readers and the engagement.

There’s a much better way to grow your audience that gets rid of contending with each other: creating a community.

Your blog site community is comprised of individuals who are absolutely crazy about your material.

They follow you on all your social networks, routinely engage with you, and appear in your inbox responding to your newest newsletter.

These people simply GET you.

If these factors aren’t enough to show you why creating relationships with your fans is essential, keep reading.

How To Get Blog Readers?

When I started my blog,  site nobody read it. I remember checking out my posts one day and seeing that somebody had actually commented.
Who was this person and how did they even find me?!

I do not believe that person ever left me a comment once again, suggesting they most likely never ever read my blog again. However, this one little comment meant a lot to me at the time. It implied that somebody, in fact, clicked my blog site, read my post, and put in the time from their day to write me a little message. Nowadays, that can be a lot to ask for.

The point of this little story is this: I felt an immediate connection with somebody, although they most likely lived miles and miles away from me. This is something of a rarity in the blogging world today.

No one makes an effort to connect on a much deeper level with their readers.

I’ve been really working on developing my blog site and social media accounts and the greatest improvement I’m seeing is the rise in developing relationships with my blog readers.

Actually, now my page views are expanding, I’m getting more thoughtful and authentic remarks, my Facebook engagement has actually been on the battle bus for months on end, I’m seeing a spike in comments and direct messages and I’m delighted to compose and share my material!

Why had not I done this before is something I do not need to ask myself because I know the answer: I remained inside my blogging bubble.

I didn’t go out of my way to get in touch with people since I believed it was a wild-goose chase and I was more concentrated on numbers and “developing my empire.”

After recognizing there was something wrong with this technique, I did something about it to change it. With that said, here are reasons why bloggers must take time to get blog readers:

Increase Your Pageviews

Having a team of blog writers suggests that you’ll share each other’s post, implying more chances to drive traffic to your blog site and get brand-new readers. There is also a possibility of working together, visitor publishing, and getting a shout out on Facebook or Pinterest.

Support Group

Having a little blog site community is the very best way to get responses to any concerns you may have, get feedback on a concept you’ve created, or simply find somebody to vent to on Twitter who understands where you’re coming from.

I share my low and high on my Facebook and like it when it gets my fans engaged so they share bits and bobs of their lives with me too.

Friendly Competition

Being pals with blog writers in a similar niche will provide you an additional kick the butt to create larger and much better material.

I know I stated we have to remove competition; however, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with little friendly competition once in a while. Often we require that additional bit of inspiration in seeing another person killing it in order to get our asses in gear and work.

Responsibility Partners

If there’s something that helps me keep an eye on my performance level when it comes to blogging, it’s having somebody to hold me accountable for my objectives.

Easier to Create + Sell Things

When you understand exactly what your audience likes to read and needs help with, it will make the creative process so much simpler.

You’ll have the ability to conceptualize a zillion concepts for the article; you’ll know exactly what to publish on your social media accounts, what sort of opt-ins people would register for your e-mail list for, and what kinds of products or services people would have an interest in purchasing from you.

Gives You Clarity

When you write an article and publish it, you will not have any doubts if your post is “sufficient” or if anybody will read it.

When you have your team you can rely on them to put in the time to read your material, leave a comment, and share it on social networks.

Boost Your Blog`s Value

When people start to regularly return to your blog site, that suggests they see you as somebody who is experienced in your particular field.

If they have concerns or need suggestions, they know who to go to. They see you as a specialist and find your material handy and helpful, suggesting they find worth on your blog.

This will offer you a sense of purpose, and generally make you more positive as a blog writer. That is a gorgeous thing!

    This is a great post! It really resonated with me! I ended up neglecting my blog for the last few months of last year for a few reasons but now I’m back, I’ve realised that if you don’t promote and engage with other bloggers, you won’t get views and comments on your posts! People ain’t gonna know you’re there if you don’t talk to people yourself!

    Hi, Jelena
    I also created a blog site last month, and currently, my blog site has almost zero visitors and no readers. The 8 methods that you introduced to get effective blog readers are very practical. I am using the 8 methods of Increase Your Pageviews and Boost Your Blog`s Value, and I think that the biggest blog Value is to provide people with valuable content. In other words, content is king, there is no good content, and even if there is a lot of traffic, it will not build a long-term relationship with the readers of the blog. This is my opinion.

    • Jelena

      You are absolutely right. It is one thing to attract the reader to the site and the other is to retain them and offer them valuable information. The visitor will stay on the site only if we offer him good content for which he will return regularly.

  • Edgar Ahimbe

    Catching the eye of readers as you rapidly grow your mailing list is every blogger’s dream. I am a new blogger and wish to quickly grow the number of followers and my dream is to be a successful blogger.

    I have read and found helpful tips from your article and I believe if I apply them, I will get to where I want online. 
    However, I seem I will have a challenge with joining established site communities that will shape me as a newbie in the trade. I do not know if there are any communities you would recommend I join.

    Thank you for the very helpful blog, Jelena.

    • Jelena

      Hello Edgar! 
      You are right. One significant success factor is being surrounded by successful people who can and can help you at all times. I wrote a post about my online community.
      I have been a member of for over three years and without which I would not have achieved significant success (in fact, I probably wouldn’t know anything about blogging, monetizing websites, affiliate marketing, email marketing, etc. without them). I’ll be glad to join us.
      You can read more about the online community here.

    Hello Jalena. Many bloggers quit along the line not because they don’t have value to offer but simply because it seems like all the efforts they put together in making a valuable blog post is in vain because nobody read their posts and if they’re even lucky enough, they have just a few reader. If only they were patient enough and incorporated these tips you have shared. So, as a newbie I find this post very useful and helpful.

    A community is the solution + going in search of people that are interested in our niche will do us a lot of good. That’s exactly what I did when I started my YouTube channel years ago in graphics design and now I want to venture into Affiliate Marketing and Blogging. Nice.

    Regards!

    • Jelena

      Thank you so much for reading my post, MrBlitzy. 
      I wish you all the best with your Youtube channel as well as many successes in blogging and affiliate marketing. If you need help, feel free to contact me.

  • Layna

    Thanks for this, Jelena! It came in a timely manner as I just started out not too long ago. I know I must be patient but sometimes, we just get a little impatient right? Anyways, I’m still waiting for my first comment to appear. ? And hoping for it to be an authentic one at that!

  • Michelle

    Really this is one of the most headache topic when it comes to blogging. Having a blog without any visitor is very dull and demotivates you. Nice info here.

  • Cristina Leau

    This is a great article. I too have some issues when it comes to retaining the audience. I like all your tips and have to think how to apply them for myself.

  • Andrea

    this is such a great post not only helpful for every blogger whether they are starting or have been blogging for a while it is great to always learn more other bloggers what works and what doesn’t.

  • Jay Colby

    These are some great tips for any blogger looking to get more people to read their blog. Having a support group is key to every business especially blogging.

  • Karen Morse

    My traffic wasn’t an easy journey and I’m still learning about it today. I think it’s important to take advantage of the different social media platforms to get more people to go to your blog and actually read the content.

  • Jessica Taylor

    Getting readers was the hardest thing about blogging. You have to really catch someones eye enough for them to keep coming back.

    • Jelena

      Joanna, congratulations on perseverance! Many bloggers give up because they do not see fast blog growth or quick payday. Every blog needs time. With every blogger I spoke with, they told me that in the first year they wanted many times to give up. However, for many of them, this is now the basic job and the primary way of earning.

  • Amber Myers

    This is such a helpful read. I always try to get readers by being honest and replying to comments when I can. I for sure do it if I’m asked a question. Support groups have helped me too.
