In this final post of the series, I offer some of my favorite strategies to produce Curiously Creative Compelling Content that Compels and Coerces. One could never say, “Rebecca suffers from the copycat syndrome.” How do you and your blog avoid the copycat syndrome?
These ideas are some of the most effective fan, follower and traffic builders I employ. Give one or all of them a try and experience the amazing results.
- Infographics. A very popular way to present information, data or knowledge in a graphic visual way. It is an excellent tool for the blogger, who wants to show their expertise in a creative way. An Infographic works because it gives the reader quick access to facts and stats in lieu of reading prolonged text. It is also a highly Pinnable image that can bring massive social amplification and engagement.
- Get Inquisitive. Get creative…it never hurts to ask! Ask for feedback on a decision. Ask for suggestions about a change you wish to make. Ask for tips and tricks for a project you are doing. Ask for help. Ask a thought provoking question that makes your readers stop and think. Questions promote engagement and can increase your loyal fan base.
- Videos. You, on screen, being yourself and sharing your expertise, can have surprising effects. If you haven’t already, start building your video presence today. It is easier than ever with smart phone cameras. It is the next step for bloggers who are ready to take it up a notch. Videos will be where blogs are today in a few years. And you can be ahead of the game. Additionally, your audience loves to see and hear you. It creates a deeper bond and more engagement.
