The Ultimate Guide to Copywriting for Bloggers


Ultimate-Guide-to-Copywriting-for-Bloggers

From past few weeks, I’m focusing on learning new marketing strategies and blogging techniques. I have analyzed my blog reports and noticed that I’m investing more time in creating content instead of focusing on its proper promotion.

That’s the topic for today’s post. In this ultimate blogging guide, I’ll be telling you one such blogging strategy which can help you getting more loyal readers to your blog.

If you will see any of the successful blogger or online marketer, you’ll notice one common thing in all of them. They’re all experts in copywriting. These people actually know how to add correct keywords in a post which will easily turn their readers into their loyal customers. They create their content so strategically that their readers start believing them blindly.

Let me make this thing bit more clear to you with the help of an example :-

Once, there was a blind beggar, begging on the roadside with a sign board in his hand. The sign board has a message - “Please ! Help me, I’m Blind”. Give me some money.

But, the beggar hardly manages to get only $5 a day. Now he starts thinking on how to earn his living.
He got an idea ! He rewrote the sign board that - “Today is a pleasant day, unfortunately, I can’t see it”. After writing the sign board again, the beggar manages to get about $15-$20 a day.

Did you get, How he has done so ?

Instead of simply using sign board that “Please ! Help me, I’m Blind”, Beggar added some more letters to it, which played with people’s thinking. After the beggar rewrote his sign board, it was producing more sympathy in people for him. Because of that particular sign board, people can now understand his situation more easily.

I hope, you are now clear with the importance of words.

Now, getting back to our main topic. Below are some tips which will be helping you in creating your content more effectively. Let’s get started.

“I have mostly male blog readers and who are aged between 18-30 years. Probably, all are having their own blog or planning to get started with their own blog soon. Except blogging, My readers love to read brief guides on Online Money Making and Product Reviews”.

Now, you might be thinking that how to track your blog audience.
