PowerPoint Presentation:

Focus 90% of your effort on content and 10% on everything else.

PowerPoint Presentation:

As marketing guru Seth Godin once told: " Comment less, contribute more, retweet none. We need you to be generous, not Dan Rather."

PowerPoint Presentation:

If people hear about your blog and want to read more, you want them to be able to find it.  So What is Your Hero Story?

PowerPoint Presentation:

For example, whenever I talk or write about my blog , I always call it Your Daily Appetizer Your Appetizer for Business, Social Media, Technology and more ( Ofcourse few Stunning Presentations too)

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rather than making your bio a resume use it to market your blog.

PowerPoint Presentation:

That way, when individual articles get reproduced or written about, your bio draws interested readers to the blog.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Emphasize elements of your prior experience that buttress your blogging cred.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The reason why most corporate blog never get popular is that they're forever hyping the products that the corporation has to sell.

PowerPoint Presentation:

However, readers can smell self-serving hype a mile away and will only read your blog if it shows some independence.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your readers almost always know more about your subject topic than you, so it's crazy not to ask for their input. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

The best comments are the ones that really force YOU to think, and maybe back down on your own opinion.

PowerPoint Presentation:

You can't respond to every comment (nor should you) but when a reader spends the time to add a comment that's worth reading, you should call attention to it and, if appropriate add your own perspective.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your readers want you to be authentic and genuine even if that sometimes means being controversial. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nobody wants to read puff pieces from a corporate weasel who's terrified to offend somebody.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If somebody takes the time and effort to actually send you an email, the LEAST you can do is get back to them quickly, even if it's just to say how much you appreciate that they bothered to write.

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you do, you've probably captured a reader for life!

PowerPoint Presentation:

On Appitive.com, we provide links at the bottom of the post, but you should also provide links inside the text. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

The more posts you get a new reader to open, the more likely you are to create a loyal reader.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The signal that you need to "change your schtick " isn't when your posts are falling flat; it's when a bunch of them that are similar have all done well.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Predictable is boring. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

While you don't want to post stuff that's completely off topic, you want readers to wonder: "what's he going to say next?"

PowerPoint Presentation:

Obviously, generating traffic is essential to a healthy blog, but it's an expensive effort with temporary results--unless you're converting that traffic into loyal readership. 

PowerPoint Presentation:

Consider: 10,000 loyal readers generate 2.6 million page views each year-- the equivalent of a viral video on YouTube.
