Why Your Blog Doesn’t Stand a Chance in Hell of Succeeding (and What To Do About It)

Why Your Blog Doesn’t Stand a Chance in Hell of Succeeding (and What To Do About It)

You dream of building an online empire.

A popular blog with hordes of loyal readers who hang on your every word.

You want to be as successful as your idols, changing the world and even getting paid to do so.

But you know you haven’t got a chance in hell of seeing that kind of success unless you can truly engage your readers and keep them interested over the long haul.

Of course, the big question is how? Engagement is an elusive creature.

Sure, you get the occasional nice comment, but it’s not like people are raving about your blog, or tripping over themselves to share your content.

You worry that you’re not connecting, that your words don’t resonate deeply with your readers, but you’ll be damned if you can figure out the magic formula.

And the truth is, unless you can find a way to connect powerfully with your readers, your blog is doomed to failure.

But there is a way to captivate and keep your audience’s attention, even if you’re a beginner, and even if you’ve tried before with limited success.

It’s a game changer, one that can take your blog from teetering on the brink of failure to achieving the success you dream of.

How to Captivate Your Audience with Humor (Even If You Don’t Think You’re Funny)

How to Captivate Your Audience with Humor (Even If You Don’t Think You’re Funny)

Let me guess…

You’re not funny. At least, that’s what you tell yourself.

And who cares anyway? Readers don’t come to your blog for laughs, right?

They come for the information.

Because blogging’s about being useful. It’s about understanding your audience and helping them achieve their goals and dreams. It’s about giving them the information they need to get where they want to go.

So that whole “being funny” thing is for the birds. Right?

Actually, if you think like this, you’re missing a big piece of the puzzle.

Being a successful blogger is not just about being a teacher…

It’s about being a performer.

Your content must do more than just educate. It must entertain.

And while using humor is not the only way to make things more fun, it’s certainly one of the most effective.

If you don’t learn to entertain while you inform, your readers will find a blogger who can.

So, are you ready to rescue your content from the classroom?

The Obvious Way to Bond with Your Readers That Almost Everyone Ignores

The Obvious Way to Bond with Your Readers That Almost Everyone Ignores

You want to build an audience for your blog.

And not just a casual, passive audience – a mob of fanatical fans.

Fans who click the link to your latest post the second it lands in their inboxes.

Fans who always leave comments and can’t wait to share your work with their followers.

Fans who’ll even drop you an email from time to time to tell you exactly what’s on their minds.

In other words, you want your readers to feel strongly connected to you – the way people feel in real life.

But getting that connection online is tough. No matter how well you write, a blog creates a certain distance between you and your readers.

However hard you try, reading a blog post is not the same as having a conversation with someone face-to-face.

So how do you create this connection you crave?

Fortunately there is a simple answer.

16 Ways to Caffeinate Your Content and Give Your Audience a Buzz

16 Ways to Caffeinate Your Content and Give Your Audience a Buzz

You dream of connecting with a powerfully engaged audience.

Readers who are excited by what you write – and show it.

But so far, the reaction to your content has been underwhelming.

And you start to wonder:

Is your writing having an impact at all?

You’re not alone. Most bloggers struggle to get a reaction from their audiences.

Because the disturbing truth is that most blog readers are barely conscious.

After all, when did you last hear someone say:

“Man, I’m so pumped right now I could sit down and read a blog post.”

Never, right?

Readers are seeking someone to snap them out of their stupor.

And if your blog can’t do that, they’ll simply sleepwalk to the next.

How to Get Interviewed by Popular Blogs (Even If You’re Not a Big Shot)

How to Get Interviewed by Popular Blogs (Even If You’re Not a Big Shot)

Stings, doesn’t it?

Whenever a popular blog quotes an expert in your niche, you feel a little pang of envy.

And you can’t help thinking…

Why not me?

And it’s a good question.

Why did that person get asked for their opinion and not you?

After all, they’re no smarter than you. No more experienced than you. No more interesting than you.

But for some reason they received that call (or email or tweet) instead of you.

Which means they earned yet another mention on a popular blog, while you’re left feeling like a nobody.

And you start to wonder…

Why do the same small set of individuals crop up time and time again online?

Do they all belong to some secret experts club that gives them access to all the best opportunities?

And if so, how do you get to be a member?
