Today is my birthday! Being my birthday, I thought I share some personal insights, thoughts, opinions on how to grow and retain your readers.
Earlier I mentioned Being honest and Open with your readers, having good content and knowing your audience to utilizing social media platforms. What are the real tricks or trade secrets? There are no secrets just common sense and decency.
This morning I ran across an article that was shared to me through my Google Plus, once I got done reading that article I reshared it so that others that are connected to me can read it as well. There is a sentence within that article that is one of the keys to unlock growth, “Remember that you won’t get ahead by being selfish. Share other people’s post and let them know. They will be more likely to share yours“.
This is very true and is what I do on a daily basis, I tweet, Google and Facebook share many of your posts so that others can read those awesome posts. Those that use Twitter know this for a fact. I have shared Wallace’s work via Facebook. What else can we do? One thing that comes to mind is using Facebook like most of us do to promote our blog but also to send out birthday wishes if you happen to be connected. This reminds of certain companies that used to send out birthday wishes to their clients. It builds that relationship. In business; we learn that it easier to gain new people but much harder to retain those that want to leave. I have seen it first hand, it is like biting the hand that fed you mentality. Granted some companies is not worth your time for some of the practices and or deceptions they use, but we are not them.
We could use Facebook Groups to plug our Blogs so that it can be seen by many. I did the legwork in researching this, so it will be up to you to use these tools.
