When it comes to Growing a Blog, he’s the best in the game.
His tips have helped a lot of people start and manage their own Blogs

I'd would be showing you few tactics that's helped me achieve this easily and Fast!

Starting a blog is one step, another is getting people to the same blog and as well getting those you've been able to pull coming back more often.
These attracts
  • More Traffic
  • Comments etc

But How can you actually keep your readers coming back to your blog?

When I started my blog newly and I believed most newbies faced the same too, the main problem was getting readers to leave comments and share my articles.
Even when you managed to get few readers; get some shares and comments, they never return.


You may start wondering
  • Are my Contents not quality enough?
  • Am I getting something wrong?
  • Did I offend anyone?
  • Etc.
The Answer to above questions is No, you are probably not aware of the tips needed to keep them coming back.
Right here on the Post, I would share my tips; one that would help you get repeat readers.

Build Email List

One of the best ways to not lose a first time reader is to actually connect with him or her via email. Which is also known as getting him into your email list.

Once he visits, leaves a comment and he subscribes to your email list, then there are chances he'd become your regular reader from that day he optins to your newsletter.

But hey;

You can’t just get him to signup to your email list, you need to give him a reason to do so.

How do you get them to Signup to your Email List?

To make a reader signup to your email list, you need to give him or her a good reason. Its very simple; offer him unique contents and make use of content upgrades to attract him to your email list.
Content Upgrades are files e.g. Ebooks, Courses, etc.. you send to your readers automatically, when he signups for your email list.

If you've been taking email list building non-serious then you've been losing a lot of potential readers.   Start Building your Email List and keep your Readers Coming Back Often.

One thing is Sure here

Once they are in your list, they can always get notified when you have new contents and lots more.

Pass the Love: Comment on their Blog Posts, Tweet and Share it

So dude, they've taken their precious time to visit your blog, share your contents and many more. It's not as if there are not other fantastic blogs out there, but they've found your blog to be precious and so they are engaging with it.

Its time you also do the same, as they need someone who can comment on their posts, share it and bring in traffic just as they do on yours. Do not sleep and wake on your blog. Visit theirs too, let them know you are in for the relationship by commenting on their posts, sharing it and bringing in more traffic.

This way you are thanking them for visiting your blog. Remember, it would encourage them to leave even more comments, share your posts with their friends and bring you more targeted traffic.
I've made it a habit to make sure I comment any reader's blog who's also taken the time to leave comments on my posts one after the other.

Leave Guest Posts

These is one of the best ways to extend your relationship with a reader and get them coming back to your blog.

Here is how it works:
  • He's visited your blog and left his comment
  • You do same
  • Next: You strike up a guest post
This is how you can build relationship with that reader especially if he or she's in the same niche.
Throw up guest posts, get to know their own readers too and engage with them. This would go a long way in getting them to come back. As you are building the relationship already.

Guest Posting would help you build long lasting relationship with your readers easily and fast.

Reply to Comments

There's nothing as easy as this: you keep the readers welcomed to your blog when you make out time to reply to their comments. Sure, you may not be busy to reply to every comment, but it helps alot.
I reply to every comments on my blog and it's helped me in winning new blog readers as they get to know I'd always be there to reply to their questions not just in my post but also in the comment section.

Make out time to reply to every comment on your blog and you should see the improvement as time goes on.

Enable Comment Reply Notification

When you visit a blog newly and leave a comment; the next thing would be to leave the blog and if you happen not to subscribe to the email list of that blog, you forget the blog for Real.
The same happens when  a new reader visits your blog.  They read the lovely post, share and leave their comments and phew; they are gone.

They may get to forget your blog after that time and when they do, you lost a reader for good.

But No Problems

With the help of a Wordpress plugin, your readers can easily get a mail whenever their comment has a new reply on your blog. It will give them another chance to subscribe to your email list.

I make use of the Comment Reply Email Notification Plugin, its free and easy to setup. 

See why its good to reply to comments?

Now you know. So enable this plugin, then make it a habit to always reply to comments on your blog posts.

    2. What's up Mathew? In addition to your contribution, I on the blogspot also prefer to accept every comments then manually delete spam comments than to moderate my comments.

      Because I also don't feel good if my comments don't appear immediately if I make them on some other blogs, and could make me not to make comments anymore on such blogs.
