5 Types of Content That Will Boost Your Blog’s Traffic

5 Types of Content that will Boost Your Blog's Traffic

It’s natural for bloggers to want to boost their blog’s traffic.

But many bloggers don’t know how to do that.

One way is to produce quality content. But which kind of content works best?

Today, my guest, Theodore Nwangene, will help you understand 5 different types of content that will help you boost your blog’s traffic.

Introduction: When frustration sets in

You stayed awake all through the night writing what you called “the perfect” blog post that would transform your blog traffic forever.

You religiously applied all the excellent blog post best practices as suggested by the experts – you used eye-catching, shareable images; you added paragraph breaks; you used H tags; and you made your content easily digestible. (Read How to Develop a Great Writing and Blogging Process to find out how to format your blog post using H tags.)

You also added the popular “click to tweet” buttons and even promoted the hell out of the post after it was published.

But after all these efforts, nothing happened. It all went dead like your regular blog posts, “not even the sound of a cricket.” Nobody apart from your family members bothered to visit your site, let alone share it.

Yeah, it’s that bad and right now you’re on the verge of giving up because, after all, it seems this whole blogging thing was never meant for you.

Well, hold on, my friend, before you finally call it quits…

…Give me a few minutes of your time.

First, I want you to clear your mind off the belief that blogging or internet marketing isn’t meant for you because it’s literally meant for everyone… yourself included.

Fluctuations in traffic and exposure happen to all of us. If you want to improve, there is no reason for poor content strategy on your blog.

However, the primary reason why your blog is not growing is that you’re not publishing the type of blog post that will produce your desired result. Your audience doesn’t also like what you’re publishing.

Did that ring a bell?

Finding a Solution to Boosting Your Blog’s Traffic

The solution is equally simple – just figure out what type of blog posts you should be publishing, that are proven to generate the result you crave, and then focus more on dishing out such content. And I bet your readers will also love it, and help you broadcast it.

Furthermore, when it comes to effective content marketing, you need a strategy that will not only save you time, but also guarantees tremendous results.

It is, therefore, time for you to identify the types of content that will drive results.

I’m talking about the kind of content your competitors have been using to beat you hands down – even when you work harder than they do – the type of content they’ve been using to make all the money from their little efforts.

Now, without further ado, let’s quickly devour these winning types of content that the big marketing influencers are utilizing right now in every niche. Read More
