Starting a blog is a dream come true for many people. But if you think that starting a blog means that you will magically start earning thousands of dollars in a day, you are wrong. For that to happen you need readers and huge traffic and traffic and readers don’t come overnight or by swinging a magic wand. You need to work hard continuously to make sure you get good and quality readers who become your loyal customers.
Here are some tips that can help you gain more visitors and supercharge the ones you have to create loyal customers out there.
1. Be consistent with your blog
If you want more traffic, you need to write more blogs. Don’t think that writing once a month for your blog will work for you. It won’t, there are millions of blogs on the internet and most of them publish two articles a day.
Google rank a blog higher when they provide fresh content regularly. But you also want to publish quality content, so maybe you can publish one article a day or two articles a week because writing a travel blog is a bit difficult.
If you want authenticity, you have to travel, so two or three articles per month should be your target. If you can do more, that is great.
2. Write enchanting titles
Titles play a crucial role, they help the reader decide whether they should open and read a particular article or not. Thus, if you want more people to open your article’s link, you need to write better titles.
Your travel blog article titles should be about solving or fixing some problems that a reader has. These kinds of titles have a higher opening rate. Also, add one or two keywords to your title too.
3. Don’t forget to promote your blog on social media
You also need to promote your travel blog to let people know that there is a certain blog out there, and they cannot afford to miss it. The best way to promote your blog is through social media. Everyone is on social media, so use Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.
4. Include visuals in your blog
Having visuals in your blog increase its credibility and makes it more appealing for the readers. That is why make sure that you include quite a lot of images in your travel blog. Now, since you are writing a travel blog, you must have original images from your vacations or so. If you don’t have that, make sure you don’t pull images from Google due to copyright issues. Instead, use Canva or other sites that have free stock images.
Another point to remember while including images or graphics in your blog is to write Alt Tag. Through this tag, you can incorporate keywords into your image’s description, which helps with getting more traffic.
5. Retweet content
When you post your article’s link on Twitter, not everyone might see it that time. That is why you must retweet it a couple of times so that everyone can see that you have written a new blog post.
6. Find your niche
Travel is a big field, and you cannot write about everything as traveling too has layers. So, figure out whether you want to write about top destinations to visit in a city/country, or you want to write about tips and so on.
7. Don’t discard guest posts
Guest posts are important as they help you build a relationship with other bloggers and get more traffic and high-quality backlinks. So, find high-quality sites where you can write guest posts to promote your blog.
