In the first week of May, you heard from several bloggers with unique perspectives on how they grew their readership into a force to be reckoned with. It was the fourth Theme Week we’ve held here on ProBlogger this year, and it was an interesting one. We had discussions about introducing forums, how to get people to read your personal blog, how to drive traffic to a startup blog, and how to create a beautiful blog that people can’t help but share with their friends. And while everyone had different advice, they all agreed on these three tips:
Top Three Takeaways from Finding Readers Week

1. Relationships

The universal sentiment was honour your reader. Give them great content and be approachable. DJ from SteamFeed says to “nurture them”. Talk to real people in real ways.

Mrs Woog agrees, saying she writes like she speaks, and that resonates with her readers. She likes to interact with her readers both on the blog and on her Facebook page. She says that she’ll start the conversations, and watch them develop – even seeing readers chat with each other. She advises being available to respond to your readers, and carve out time especially to do so.

    To really apply the ‘Be where your readers are’ I believe that GOOGLE ALERTS are are perfect tool. This is perfect way to listen and respond to your customers in a more direct manner.
    I was reading a report of how a currently award winning blogger made his reputation. He wrote some great blogs and then gathered traffic and then used Google Alerts to alert him when his name was mentioned in any forums. This way he made contact directly which strengthened his position in front of his audience.

    Building relationship should be the key as even when you are consistent and you are where it is happening and great realtionship is not built it really does not do much…

    Develop a voice, a bond, show care and concern, have a listening ear, let them feel like a family, talking to them like one will create that sorta relationship…

    As I would always say make your blog a home and have readers call it home…

    Bang on Darren, relationship is the key which defines the success in blogging business. The content, the interaction and the value of the blog resonates with the good relationship.

    Consistency helps in making readers expect the content at the right time, this way they can even make themselves free to read the post.

    There seems no logic to posting all the feeds in facebook if one has million followers in twitter. One needs to analyze their audience social media websites and be more active in that social website only.

    Sure, something did resonate with me, and that is “value”. From the takeaways of relationship, consistency, and being where the readers are, I easily see value been transferred from a blog the readers!

    To explain this better, finding readers involves creating dependable contents that readers would interact with and have their problems solved.

    It is important to build your community, for your content will not go viral if you don’t have them. There are many suggestions and tips with regard to this topic, and you can actually find it anywhere on the web. I must agree that these three tips given above are the most common.

    Building reader’s relationship, being consistent and interacting with your readers – these three are all valuable in creating your own community. I suggest you to be active in various social media platforms. This is the place where you can leverage the most and perhaps a place where you can start at.
