HOW TO GET FREE TRAFFIC TO YOUR BLOG!


1.CREATE & UNDERSTAND YOUR USER'S PERSONA

Whenever I start my blogs, I always create and then understand the personas of my potential readers. It's important to understand your blog's users to create a strategy to fulfill their needs. Only then can you bring in the traffic.

While it sounds difficult to create your user's persona, it isn't. All you need is to answer the following questions:
  1. Who is your target audience?
  2. What's the target age group?
  3. What are the problems of your audience?
  4. How will your potential users find the solution and where?
  5. How much do they already know about a particular topic or problem?

2.START GRABBING EMAIL SUBSCRIBERS

If you are new to blogging. You are likely to spend your time only driving new users to your website. And that is a big mistake why? Because 80% of users leaving your blog will never return.

My recommendation is to build your email list even if your blog is new. Once you start collecting your user's email addresses start sending Emails to bring traffic to your blog.
If you want a good CTR(Click Through Rate) then it's about maintaining your list active and fresh. Every month I delete all inactive users, and I ensure only interested people are on my list.


3.RELISH THE POWER OF PUSH NOTIFICATION

Whenever you visit a website you usually view a push notification asking you to get notified of new content. It's a wonderful way to generate traffic to your blog smoothly. I like it because I can engage with my visitors after they have left my blog.


4.CREATE USEFUL CONTENT USING IMAGES, CHARTS, VIDEOS & MORE.

Create a valuable piece of content for your blog's users, the most important way to increase blog traffic. And it's my favorite, write on the topic that your users cannot resist reading it. Create as many pillar articles and blog posts as possible.

Add images, charts, videos, infographics, tables, and every other thing which adds value to your users. PROVE YOUR IMPORTANCE IN YOUR NICHE AND IT WILL BRING IN A LOT OF TRAFFIC TO YOUR BLOG


5.MAKE YOUR CONTENT EXTREMELY SKIMMABLE FOR YOUR READERS.

Search engines love long pieces of content. But your blog's users may or may not love them, make your blog posts and articles extremely readable for your users. Most of the time, your readers don't want to get impressed by your high skilled vocabulary they want a solution to their problem. All you need is to help them understand the subject so that their problem gets solved and that's just it.


6.WRITE KILLER HEADLINES TO DRIVE TRAFFIC TO YOUR BLOG.

When users of a search engine find your blog post in search results, they will see its headline. They will click on the post only the headlines attractive your titles should not be clickbait but click-worthy.

A killer headline causes some emotional response and offers reward or value. You should be attractive and creative enough to encourage a click to your article or post and still add your target keywords.



7.GET TRAFFIC TO YOUR BLOG USING Q&A SITES LIKE QUORA

Question and answer sites like Quora help bring in a lot of traffic to your website or blog.

Firstly, these websites have impressive domain authority.

Secondly, there's a large audience for you to target so keep adding value with 
  • Your answers,

  • Write an answer on that space or 
  • Create your own space and people will get back to your blog.


8.REPURPOSE YOUR CONTENT.

Repurposing content refers to changing the existing content for other platforms and formats.
Like
  • I published a youtube video
  • then I created a blog post based on that video
  • then I created an Instagram post 
  • then I made a Facebook post 
  • And all this is interlinked to your blog so that you would get more traffic
