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.

You eagerly devour each new one, hoping to give your writing brain a small but valuable upgrade.

But in practice, new tips appear so regularly that you struggle to keep up.

You don’t know which tips to try and which to ignore, and each new practice is quickly replaced by the next.

One week you’re trying to use more emotion in your writing. The next, fewer adjectives. After that, it’s all about empathy.

You end up switching tactics so often that you can’t tell which tips are working and which are simply wasting your time.

Surely there’s an answer? A solution must exist that lies somewhere between trying everything and ignoring everything.

The Minimalist Guide to Twitter: How to Handle It in 15 Minutes a Day

The Minimalist Guide to Twitter: How to Handle It in 15 Minutes a Day

Has this ever happened to you?

You venture over to Twitter to share your latest blog post.

You type your message, click Tweet and you’re just about to leave when…

Something in your timeline catches your eye.

It’ll only take a few seconds to check it out, right?

Then you see something else. Then something else.

And before you know it, an hour has passed and you’re left wondering where the hell your time went.

It’s a common problem. Twitter’s a powerful tool for bloggers, but it’s also a dangerous distraction.

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?
