Blog Tips: How to Create a Mobile Version of Your Blog and Increase Traffic and Sales

Blog Tips:  How to Create a Mobile Version of Your Blog and Increase Traffic and Sales

Smartphone, mobile deviceWhen it comes to your blog or website, the word is mobile for this holiday season. According to the following Response Magazine article, “Mobiles Emerges as Game Changer for Black Friday, Cyber Monday,” by Doug McPherson on December 3rd, mobile commerce is the big winner this holiday season:

IBM reports mobile emerged as a true season game changer: mobile sales increased a whopping 29.3 percent and accounted for one in five transactions. Total sales were up 8.7 percent over 2013, according to IBM.
Analysts say Cyber Monday’s results were so strong they could offset lackluster sales from Black Friday. Total Thanksgiving weekend spending declined 11 percent to $50.9 billion this year, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF). Stores saw about 6 million fewer shoppers than expected.
IBM says the Cyber Monday results indicate shoppers are becoming more digitally savvy with online coupons and rebates to find the best bargains.

Well, what does this mean? It means that you need to have a mobile version of your blog so that customers can easily buy products and services from you.
Here are three steps you can take to make your WordPress blog more mobile friendly:

  1. Use Mobile Conversion Plugins – The power of WordPress is that you can use pre-made applications called plugins that allow you to perform certain tasks on your blog. One of the best plugins to make your blog mobile-friendly is Mobile Website Builder for WordPress by DudaMobile.Responsive Devices, responsive themes, responsive websites, responsive blogs

  3. Use Coupons – Discount coupons give the viewer a sense of instant savings. Your website viewer will develop a sense of urgency when you place a time-sensitive coupon on your mobile site.

Blog Secrets: Five Questions to Ask Before Writing Powerful Blog Posts

Blog Secrets:  Five Questions to Ask Before Writing Powerful Blog Posts

blog, blogs, blogging, blog posts, blog content, Ed Sykes, blog traffic guruIf you are not use to writing, creating a blog post can be a daunting task.  Because great, compelling content is the key to the success of your blog, it is important that you develop methods to creating content.  You can use a content writing service like iwriter.com or you can write the posts yourself.

The question is, “How Do You Write Blog Posts That Connect with Readers?”  The following are five questions that will help clarify your thoughts concerning how to write powerful posts:

  1. Are your Target Audience’s Needs Being Addressed? – Does your blog post topic appeal to your target audience? Create a post that excites your readers and creates a buzz among your readers. It will help your blog become successful.
  2. Does Your Post Provide Useful Information to Your Target Audience? – People are always looking for information that can answer their questions.  People look for information that will elevate “pain”  (problems that your readers may be having) or gain pleasure; they are looking for information that will solve problems, and they are looking for information that will create opportunities for their information.  If you can do this, you will develop a growing group of followers waiting for information that is important to them.
  3. Is Your Post Unique? –  While there may be several blogs and social media sites sharing the same information, is your blog post unique in the way you share the information.  Do you share the information through your own personal story or case study?  Are you writing the post through your own unique voice?  Is your viewpoint or perspective unique?  These are all factors that make your post unique and bring readers back and increase blog traffic.
  4. Is Your Blog Using Credible Sources for Your Content? – Take the time to validate your information.  If you are using statistics, charts, etc., make sure you mention the source of your information and make sure they are a reliable resource.  If you can, mention statistics for thought leaders in your industry.  If you are sharing inaccurate information, you can hurt your image and lose credibility with your target audience.blog, blog post, blog content, blogging, blogger, proofreading, Ed Sykes, blog traffic guru
  5. Did You Proofread Your Post? – Invest the time to proofread your post before pressing the “publish” button.  Grammatical errors take away from the message of your post and speak volumes about you as an expert.  If you don’t like proofreading, hire someone to do it for you.  I have found inexpensive, quality proofreaders on www.craigslist.org or www.fiverr.com.  These proofreaders take their jobs seriously and it is an investment in you and your blog.  Work to capture your reader’s attention within the first 100 words of the post.

If you can answer “yes” to the five questions above, you are on the way to producing engaging, interesting, and persuasive content that readers will enjoy reading, acting on, and sharing with others.  Let these five questions be the guide to helping you create a successful blog.
