Everyone is focused on getting more traffic to their blogs. However, few people focus on keeping the momentum going. This results in a big spike, and then traffic continues as if the big spike had never happened. In order to keep the traffic that you gain, you need to keep the momentum going on your blog.
There is no better way to keep the momentum going than by getting more subscribers. By getting people to subscribe to your blog, they will be constantly notified every time you come out with a new blog post. As these people read several blog posts on your blog, some of them will decide to buy your products. In addition, they will visit your blog frequently. Having a subscription box that is easy to see is one of the many ways to get more subscribers on your blog.
Getting people to subscribe to your blog is not enough. Once a subscriber visits your blog for a second time, or when you get a first time visitor, you want those people to stay on your blog for as long as possible. In order to get more people to stay on your blog, you need to reduce your blog’s bounce rate. Reducing your blog’s bounce rate will increase the amount of time a visitors stays on your blog.
In addition, you need to make it easy for people to share your blog posts on their social networks. I have social sharing buttons at the end of all of my blog posts. This allows people to easily share my content across multiple platforms. Do not forget to add pictures to your blog posts so people can share your blog posts on Pinterest.
By keeping the momentum on your blog, you will be able to keep most of the traffic that you gain when you see a spike in traffic. It is possible to have 50 daily visitors and suddenly encounter a spike where you get 200 visitors for the day. By implementing these tactics and having your blog battle-ready, you will be able to keep most of the people from the spike in traffic. Instead of falling back to 50 daily visitors, you may be able to get 75-100 daily visitors after the spike is over.
