Readers are what makes or breaks a great website. You need them to promote, participate, and share your articles. How do you keep them coming back for more (And bringing their friends with them)? Follow these tips to increase your website’s content engagement rates:
- Start some controversy – Sounds insane I know but strumming up a debate is an excellent way to get people commenting and sharing their own opinions.
- Reward your readers for engaging – Shouting out readers on your social media as a reward for participating is an excellent way to encourage engagement.
- Request readers thoughts – Asking your readers for their thoughts and opinions encourages them to share the article on their platforms along with their opinions, thus increasing exposure.
- Use Interactive Content – Creating puzzles, tools, surveys, or questionnaires is a great way to draw readers in and increase engagement.
