Online marketing is incomplete without a blog because the content you create moves the needle for your business, drive conversion, and results in a high ROI. Blogging is a major commitment and you continuously need to update fresh, unique and valuable content. Converting blog readers to potential customers is a difficult task, but not if you follow the bad practices of blogging. Stuffing your blog post with keyword and sharing copied content is a way to turn away the readers. Here are a few ways to convert the prospects to customers.
Choose topics that are valuable
The best blog topics are those which answers the question to a problem and relieves the pain point of your readers. For example, if your target visitors are entrepreneurs, share blog post on making more money online and ways of improving the customer service. When valuable content is shared, a reader waits for your blog post because they know, you will solve their problems. Blog around such topics drive the conversion rate and attracts the potential audience. You can provide a detailed framework to solve the problem, but leave a room to include a firm call-to-action. Never provide all the answers in a single post otherwise the traffic to your website will eventually deplete thereby reducing the effectiveness of your online marketing campaign.
Monetize on the emotions
Most of the purchasing decisions are driven by emotions and dictates the perception about your blog. Therefore, use language evoking positive emotions in the customer. Focus on building a positive relationship with the readers. The more readers are interested in your business, customers are likely to come back to your brand and blog. Monetize on the emotions of your readers to come out with flying colors and reach the target audience.
Your blog post should be more like a road which is singular and straight. Your road should have not connecting roads to other attractions as it will distract the potential readers. Stick to your point and let your story unfold slowly to build the trust of your online customers.
Focus on creating useful content to improve your online marketing efforts.
