Find your competitors

First and foremost step that will surely work is finding competitors. I hope most of you have good knowledge about how to find competitors. But if you are beginner, you need to find your competitors.  Finding competitors is easy job. What you are writing, find the website ahead you in the same field. You will notice some of them. You can assume them as your competitors.

Suppose you are working in technology field. Your website has some keywords. Search on Google who are working better than you.  Choose a few (5) out of them. Follow them; you will get new ideas for posts. You can review what they have written in past; what they have posted nowadays. You can get better ideas to present your data.  You will surely inspire from those websites.

Update your old stuff

You don’t only to look others blog only, you should check your own content too. If you think that your old post needs update with new, just update them with new information. This will be beneficial for you. Reviving content with changing time is compulsory.

For example: You add a new post in previous year, ‘ Top 10  photo editing Android Apps for year 2018’; Now you are in 2019, you need to update them with new ideas in same post and change year 2018 to 2019. Mostly visitor find latest information about products. If you don’t effort, your popular posts can lose their popularity.

Subscribe your competitors’ blogs

Many blogs give subscribe option. They send latest information about their content through emails. Subscribe those blogs and get completely new ideas to work in your blog. You can also compete with your competitors with help of such novel ideas.

Make Most of Social Media

Social media is a robust platform to promote your blog. You can find your competitors there. You can learn how they post their information about their blogs. You can get brainstorming ideas from their postings. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and other popular social networking sites.

Write Seasonal articles

Seasonal articles are in fashion. You can also write seasonal articles. You can write about new items each months like seasonal events, new themes of the month, new plugins of the month, new video editing software of December (write any month), Cool gadgets for Christmas, New WordPress themes for birthday, New Android games of month (you can write name of month), New iphone games of December 2019 (you can write what current month and year). People are internet savvy; they want to be updated with new innovations and techniques. Your articles may help them to do so.

Make and Interact with your online communities

Make your online communities on social networking sites.  You can create your Facebook page, Facebook group, Youtube channel, Twitter list, Instagram page, Whatsapp group. Online communities will help you to promote your blog as a brand.  Try to be regular in all online communities.  You can also join Question and Answer community.  You can answer relevant questions of your blog topic. Thus you can attract more visitors to your website. Join your competitors’ online communities too.

Be Creative

Never blindly follow your competitors, do better than them. Unique ideas always pay uniquely. Don’t copy their post title, create your own. You should take exclusive ideas from their titles. But be unique and matchless, your post title should more impressive than them.

For example, if your competitor has given a title ‘Top 7 cooler brands in India’; you can write your post title ‘Top 10 best cooler brands in India.’

Google Keyword Planner

Google Keyword Planner should be integral part of your routine. You can search keywords and their competition in market, relevant searches of keywords in a month. You will also receive related keywords there. The number of searches for those keywords can help you to know popularity of your related content.  Triople recommends you to use Google Keyword Planner before writing a post for blog.

Be Trendy with Google Trends

Where the word ‘trend’ comes, modern styles come in your mind. Trends are subject to change in the world. So you need to be trendy. Follow trends of the online world. Visit Google Trends and check trends regularly. You can easily know what people are talking about on internet. If some of those trends match your area, try to follow them. You can check trends by adding your keywords. The prime benefit is for you to think about future posts as per trending keywords. Google Trends allows you to write as per popular trends.

Read and Reply comments

Regularly read comments of users, reply them if required. It will increase interaction between you and users. Users will revisit to know other information. It will increase trust of your blog. You need to use such activities for social pages of blog and Youtube videos.  If you answer and suggest your readers properly, it will increase credibility of your blog. More people will take interest in your blog. You blog will get popularity.  As I have a Youtube channel, I usually reply the comments of people there.  It is giving advantage to me.

Read Books and Inspire from others’ Ideas

We agree with the quote “A room without books is like a body without soul.” Make books your friends. We agree that you can find all stuff online but books have their own value.  Sometimes what you get from experience of writers, you can’t search on internet. Books are valuable source of information. Good books will guide you and direct you in perfect direction. You can buy useful books relevant to your area. There are many online book selling platforms, some of them are following:

Use Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a very beneficial tool to know demographic status of your blog. You can simply know the location of most readers. It helps you to write post relevant to your target readers.

Have An Eagle Eye on new plugins and services

 

Be updated with latest technology. Try useful plugins and other software. You can write your reviews about new launched plugins and software after use. You can search information about them too. People catch rapidly the latest products. Be attentive and a critical reviewer for readers. If visitors find valuable information, they will take interest in your blog.

You can write comparing posts too.  Most of people are confused to buy the better products. Your comparison can be valuable for those. Comparison helps them to choose the best. Comparison articles are appreciated broadly. If the compared products/services meet readers’ expectations, the post will prove trust builder in readers.

Communicate with your audiences

Your readers and audiences may be experienced and sharp-mind people or they have needs to know specific information. You can ask them to share new ideas in comment sections or via email. This will useful to make your blog more interactive. This technique is useful to engage audience with blog. You often watch Youtube video,  Youtubers often ask audience to post their comment upon video.

Avoid negative approach

Most of the readers avoid negative approach of the post. Positive depicted posts are appreciated. Now we can consider it with a small example. You create title for a post ‘Why should you not buy XYZ software.’ This is a negative approach. You can change it with creative way and in positive manner like ‘Why you need to avoid purchase of XYZ software?’
