With increased engagement, not only does it helps to attract more readers, it also help to make your website interactive and generate unique content.
Visitors want to participate and see what everyone else is discussing about. By engaging your visitors, you will also be able to understand their needs better.
Here are 4 simple tasks that you can do to increase your engagement in your articles, blog and Facebook.
Yes, ask for it. Asking for it is a specific call to action for the readers to act on. Instead of asking them to click the links, you can actually ask for their feedback, thoughts and opinions.
It does not matter if you are writing a content for article, blog post or Facebook post. You can use the following questions and include then at the end of your content to engage them:
* How do you feel about this?
* If you are the one doing it, how will you deal with it?
* Which is your favourite …?
* When was the last time you also encounter …?
These are just some of the questions which you can ask the visitors so that you are able to get their responses.
Engage their intelligence and also emotions. Stirring their emotions will increase the chances of the visitors leaving a comment and express their views on the content that you posted.
Interaction is a 2 way traffic. You’ll also need to respond to the comments left by your visitors.
If you do not respond to the comments, then the conversation may stop there. Your involvement should not just stop at the end of the content.
In fact, replying to the comments helps to engage the visitors even more!
3. CONTROVERSIAL TOPICS
Controversy tends to motivate people to share their opinion. But be careful and also be sensitive. Do not be controversial for the sake of it. You need to be logical and rational when you are expressing your views on these topics.
Beware of any negative backlash and do not take it too personally. Everyone is entitled to their own views.
4. PERSONAL STORY
Share a personal story and let your visitors know a bit more about yourself that relates to the content of your article or post. When you are sharing your own story, those who felt the same will be able to “nod” in their head silently in their mind and agree with you and motivates them to share their own story too.
Doing this let you understand your visitors more as well.
If you have a blog, reader activity and comments add credibility to your blog. Additionally, they tend to motivate more reader interaction, links and increased traffic. If you have a theme-based website, then reader-generated content can really help you boost your search engine ranking.
In addition, I like to wish all the Christian and everyone a Happy Good Friday. Enjoy your Easter holiday.
