Build a blog audience, grow your website followers, increase your site’s readers… Whatever you call it, this resource should help you. I refer to it all the time when helping clients and friends with their website and social media growth.
At Recharge Creative, I assist all my clients with basic SEO and web marketing principles. Showing them how to make smart choices with their content and delivery. Keeping up to date with their social media platforms of choice. Utilizing their previous posts to enhance new content.
That’s just scratching the surface, but it’s a lot to take in for new blog owners.
Get Serious: Build a Blog Audience
I frequently get asked “how do I know who’s reading my blog?” and “how do I build a blog audience?” For the former, I teach them about Google Analytics and show them how to watch trends and measure campaigns. For the latter, I go over chapters 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 10 of this awesome how-to guide from Quick Sprout.
I haven’t found a simpler walkthrough yet. It covers pretty much every reasonable angle for increasing growth in your audience but doesn’t overwhelm you – something my clients really appreciate.
Since I end up discussing this and sharing the link with most of my clients, I figured you’d probably appreciate it too. So here you go. Get started increasing your website audience.
And no, this doesn’t just apply to blogs. You can apply most of this resource to non-blog websites too.
