Ask readers to share
Sharing on social media is way that can gain you more traffic to your site and posts. Ask your lovely readers to help you out by sharing the post to their social media sites. Make sure you give them easy access to share with those sharing buttons either on the side or right below the post.
Want readers to interact more? Then ask them questions. It is much easier to leave a comment when they ask you something at the end of the post. Of course it can be about anything you want, but it is best to be something that relates to the article. That way there is more potential for comments on your post which is always wanted.
Link to the best resources
Sometimes you may not have all of the information and you want to let people know of some really great articles. Well link them to those wonderful resources that you even find helpful. This is not always the best if the resources are not reliable and because it takes them off of your site, but that is your call. Sometimes it is needed.
Link to your related posts
Many have related posts already under the post, but sometimes it doesn’t go to ones that actually will help them out. Add more related posts at the end and let them know that they can keep reading such great information you have for them. Or let them check out posts that are a part of the series in order so that they know where to go next.
Share a preview of future posts
Let your readers know what is come up in the future. Maybe you already have some posts scheduled for the next week that is related and want them to come back for it. Let them know how much value it could be for them and share a little snippet of what they can expect.
Got anything to sell or an email opt-in for your readers? Then promote it! Let them know what you have to offer them. Maybe it will get them to sign up for your newsletters so that they won’t miss out on anything. Or maybe it will redirect them to a course or product you have available that will benefit them and build your clientele.
