I have not been too long in the blogging industry, but I guess am not wrong when I say, engagement is very important to everybody because it is the only factor that makes people enjoy what they are reading or watching.


Let’s say, you are passing by and you see an article, movie or may be an advert, you would be prompted to watch or read base on how engaging it is, right?

Ok!   Now that we have the outline, let’s try to expand it one after the other for better understanding.  Of the whole topic….

Tip #1  YOUR HEADLINE SHOULD BE ENGAGING AND ATTRACTING...



When we talk about engaging your readers or audience, the first step to consider is your headline or possibly your content information title.

That is the only thing that attracts someone to want to open your content is the first place. That alone guarantee you an entry to your content.

But that is definitely not a guarantee that the person would read to the very last bit of the information. That brings us to the next point...



Special Tip: Engagement brings a lot of traffic to your blog or website 



Tip #2  MAKE SURE YOUR CONTENT INFORMATION HAS A STRONG OPENING...



After your title has been able to attract people to open up the information, it is then up to you to give a very nice and intelligent opening to your information.

Always remember that the title of an information is as important as the opening and it guarantees a read up of your content.

Always make it interesting and create a suspense in the heart of your readers, always make them want to read more… let’s consider the next point which says:



Tip #3  ENSURE THAT THE IDEA BEHIND YOUR CONTENT IS WELL EXPLAINED FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING.


This point is very important and should be considered just like the rest of the points mentioned above. I guess you might have read post from other famous bloggers saying “content is king” this simply means that your content has the power to make or break your blog popularity and credibly.

I wrote a post about “how to increase your blog credibility”, you might want to read it.

If you are able to explain the idea behind your title or information, then you are on the destination of audience engagement and there would be happy that your post is not as junk like the rest of the information they might have come across on the web. but the success of this can be attributed to how well you can explain yourself in writing. 

Make your content carry profound explanation of the topic you are writing !!


Tip #4 USE SUB-HEADING TO TELL THEIR OWN STORY..

Content becomes interesting to read if you are able to break it in different headings called the sub-headings. It is the only way not to make your post boring…

Introduce sub-headings and let them explain themselves and direct it towards the achievement of reaching the goal of the main content or information. This post is an example.


Tip #5  USE EYE CATCHING INTERESTING MEDIA OR VISUALS... (IMAGES OR VIDEOS)


If your content is text based, then you consider putting relevant images to you context, note the key word here is relevant image. Research has shown the content with relevant images gets the highest involvement with and engagement, it shows diversification in your artefact. It breaks the boringness of a content and adds an ingredient of interest…



Tip #6  DON'T ASSUME ANYTHING, TEACH FACT INSTEAD OF ASSUMPTIONS.


Everybody wants to be around a professional, so he or she would learn a lot. We wouldn't want to use our business as a sample or may be a trial version because we are simply serious about it.

So we want to get facts not an assumption that it might work. I guess everybody wants to hear it would work instead of the otherwise. SO I always recommend you teach facts to your audience. It makes your content or information more interesting.



Tip #7  BREAK UP YOUR CONTENT WITH QUOTES, BULLETIN OR EVEN IMAGES.


Quotes makes your text based information look beautiful from afar and even near. It also used to breaks the boringness in the heart of your readers just like images does. It is also used for special advice or even a special tips or note.

As a pro blogger it is always recommended to use quotes. We are aiming to become a pro blogger someday.

Same as a Bulletin points in your context. It helps a lot just like using quotes and images.



Tip #8  WRITE SHORTER AND SIMPLE SENTENCES.


Longer explanation of a points or headlines sounds boring only if you are not able to structure it nicely and interesting. You should try to explain yourself as short as possible.

Am not saying that longer explanation of a point is bad, am only trying to say that in as much as some points might require longer explanations, it is recommended to make it as short as possible.

Use correct and simple sentence that is better understood by everyone, don’t use jargons because not everybody understands your country’s jargon.

Tip #9  ALWAYS ENCOURAGE YOUR AUDIENCE TO LEAVE A COMMENT BY ASKING A QUESTION AT THE END OF THE POST…


Finally, always encourage your readers or audience to join the conversion by leaving a comment using your comment system box.

You can simply ask them of what they think about the information you haves successfully written and published. Just like as am about to ask you of what you think about the information you have read here…
