The more the caring attitude you’ll have towards your readers, the more they will trust you and higher will be your credibility amongst them. We’ve brought a list 5 things bloggers can do to show how much they care about your readers.
1. By Providing Useful Content
Well, this is not a rocket science tip. All bloggers know the importance of unique and useful content for their blogs. The more useful information you share with your readers the more they are going to like you.
2. By disclosing your ads
The other thing you should do as a blogger for your readers is to full disclose the advertisings on your blog. You readers must and should know that the product review they are reading is based on your honest opinion or a paid post.
You should disclose clearly whether you are going to earn anything from the products they buy on your recommendations or not. Don’t hide anything from your readers. In fact, the more you will disclose, the more they will trust you.
3. Show them you are not perfect
It is a fact that bloggers (at least most of them) are human beings and human beings are not perfect. So, don’t behave like that you know everything about your niche amongst your readers. People (readers) don’t like it.
Show your humanly face to your readers. If you’ve done a mistake accept it. If you don’t know something, ask it from your readers. And, thank them for their suggestions.
4. Listen, Respond and adapt their suggestions
As a blogger, listen to the suggestions your readers give to you. Respond to their queries as quick as possible whenever they try to contact you. Adapt yourself and your blog according to the feedback you get from them like blog more about the topics they enjoy reading.
5. Reward them
Encourage your loyal readers by rewarding them. A reward could be anything – access to your confidential tips, free e-book, free tool or a WordPress theme, a cash prize or just a do-follow link. Reward them to make them feel how special they are for you and your blog.
Remember blogging is all about relationships and networking with your readers. If you’ll care about your readers obviously they will care about you too. Do you have any more tips we can add to our list? Share them with us in the comments section below.
