WordPress is the most popular Content Management System which makes the process of updating and managing the website’s content easier. It certainly beats the technique of building a static site using a website builder. It’s basically designed to keep your site updated all the time. There are lots of plugins and systems that make the process of creating, publishing and sharing much easier.
Here are some tips to make your WordPress blog successful:
1. Publish regularly: Publishing regularly doesn’t mean that you need to set a date for each post and write something on that day. You need to have a structured plan for that and you also need to stick to your plan.
Plan structure will vary for different sites, but it probably includes:
- Planning the schedule to publish your content
- Identifying the ideas on what to post
- Drafting new posts
- Preparing content stuffs like images and videos if required
- Editing posts
- Publishing posts
- Sharing posts and promoting them to attract the readers
2. Share content: Sometimes, even if your blog is full of well-written, engaging and professional content, people would not be seeing it until you tell them about that. Your strategy for increasing your site traffic will include SEO; but you also need to include broadcasting where you tell people about how good your site is.
Here are some ways through which you can share your content:
- Social media: You can share your content on social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Reddit and many more.
- Email: Those who have subscribed to your site will automatically receive a notification via email whenever you publish any new content on the site.
- RSS feeds: One good feature of WordPress CMS is that, it automatically generates an RSS feed for all your posts and comments. Giving a link to this in a prominent place on the site makes it easier for the users to subscribe.
- Newsletter: Make use of mailing services to brief out your content to the subscribers. It definitely gives you more control than the auto generated mails.
3. Manage subscribers and comments: If you wish to build audience through the website or if you are posting something that would bring you an income, you definitely have to be engaged with your readers to make sure that, they visit your site again and also recommend your site to their friends and colleagues. You can make use of social media to do this effectively. The best way is to build a community of readers and make them feel that your website is loyal.
Building a blog or a website and sustaining it is really difficult as you have to keep generating the ideas for new contents, publishing engaging posts, etc. It’s not just about creating the content; you also need to share your content so that the people will get to know about it.
