Greenhouse – Social Butterfly
If you’re not promoting your blog on social networks, you’re not maximizing traffic. Social promotion is essential for bringing online communities to your site. And when done right, the potential for growth is huge.
One of the most popular blogs we came across this month was home to Greenhouse Software. They know which networks work for sharing and how to talk with online communities.
Pro Tip: Promoting blogs across social networks is great for bringing online communities to your site. Here’s another reason why social promotion is a good idea: It builds your brand as an industry thought leader. Social communities associate brand authority with engagement. Make sure you’re tapping into these opportunities.
Helpshift – Post Frequency
Keep your audiences happy with fresh content. Because your audience wants to stay sharp, it gives you an opportunity to meet their needs with new content.
One team we saw honing in on this strategy were the Helpshift bloggers. With over three blogs published each week, their readers know to return for more top-notch content.
Pro Tip: Publishing new content opens up the door to tackle new topics before your industry. Think of your blog as a fishing net, the more content you have, the better chance you have for making a catch.
Artificial Solutions – Blog UX
Blog UX means using great design, making navigation easy, making share buttons accessible, etc. And providing this kind of user experience keeps readers around and returning for more.
When we came across the Artificial Intelligence blog, we knew we saw a UX home-run. They use a simple design that makes any reader want to stick around.
Pro Tip: We all have blogs that we frequent because we just love being there. This is blog UX at work. When your blog hits home on solid UX, you satisfy your readers and create loyalty.
SlickPie – Well-Rounded Writing
Depending on your vertical, you may have a wide-ranging audience. And because your audience is diverse, you have to craft content for unique readers. This makes a versatile content team important.
After looking at the SlickPie blog, the first thing we noticed was their well-rounded writing. Which makes complete sense when you look at their industry. Their awesome authors know exactly how to communicate with diverse audiences.
