Twitter is a microblogging platform that connects target audience to your business. Studying your followers would help you craft the best tweet and drive real-time traffic to your blog.

The difference between two blogs that has quality contents, engagement and reach is the theme. The design matters and don’t be deceived by the myth that people don’t judge a book by its cover. It’s a myth that we’ve lived with for decades – but recent studies have revealed the truths about visual marketing.

5. Engage Your Readers Quietly
I said quietly because it’s a gradual process – building engagement wouldn’t happen overnight. You need craft quality and valuable contents that people can connect with – it must be valuable and relevant to them.
As I said earlier, every topic you intend to write about has been addressed by some experts, somewhere. It’s the angle you write from that makes the difference and keeps people active (engaged).
As people spend more time reading, commenting and asking questions on your posts, it shows you understand your audience and have crafted a piece to solve their problems. This is what Google is after, and you’ll be rewarded with rich, targeted organic traffic consistently.
Study your audience as you would study for Final Year Exams in College. Get to know your readers and what piques their mind.
Remember, the more quality time people (readers, prospects, clients, customers and so forth) spend at your blog, the more they feel like buying from you. Engagement increases conversion rate – positive engagement, actually.
Blog Earning’s Takeaway
