You got them to read your blog — huzzah! That’s half the battle.
Now, what’s next? Getting readers to engage.
Engagement leads website visitors (aka blog readers) through the buyer’s journey, your ultimate goal.
How Do Readers ‘Engage’ With A Blog?
Engagement can be something as simple as a reader leaving a comment on your blog, or sharing your blog on social media.
But the best form of engagement is Call-to-Action clicks. I say “best” because CTA clicks most swiftly drive website visitors through the buyer’s journey.
So how do you get readers to click a CTA? Though wording, design and placement play a large role in CTA clickability, content remains king. If you aren’t backing up your CTAs with desirable content, no one will care — or click.
