4 Ways To Retain The WordPress Reader


Hi everyone,

Losing the focus of the reader.

Any reader wants to have priceless information to help the blog, business succeed.

You can write fresh content every day but still miss the goal, focus, and interest of the reader. 


What happens when you lose your focus?

When I went through school and work, I had a part-time job at FedEx. Around December there was always a lot of orders.

At that time, I learned how crucial it is to be on time also how consumers keep returning for their orders.

FedEx is known for a reliable, fast, and express delivery for its buyers.

Therefore the worker/driver must be friendly for its buyers. Due to the massive work overload, my age, I lost my focus and the job.


There are 4 simple ways to grab the attention of the reader and retain them to your blog.

  1. Slogan.
  2. Simple colors.
  3. Write clear to the reader.
  4. Organizing and scheduling for success.

1. Slogan.

Do you know what a slogan is? It’s a short summary of your business service. When you write a slogan for the reader, you must explain what you do in short. 

In that way, readers can quickly have an overview of what you do so you can spark the curiosity and enthusiasm of the reader. 

In my blog homepage, you see my sales offer, and on the about me page, you can get to know me. In the contact page, I guide and motivate the reader to contact and collaborate with me.

That can beef up your interactions with readers.


2. Simple colors.

Using too many colors can make your eyes feel heavy. Using complex colors can distract the reader or drop their subscription.

The bounce rate is the number of users that exit and leaving your blog forever. 

The bounce rate is high when you make things too difficult for the reader. No reader spend much time to figure out your (coded) message.

When you upload pictures to your blog, be thoughtful of the reader on the other end.

Landmarks of primary communication.

  • Eyes need rest.
  • Eyes are linked to the brain, so the brain needs time to process data.
  • The brain is connected to the mind, which can motivate, stimulate the reader to act.

In my infographic about communication and information, you see the primary landmarks of the mind.

3. Write clear to the reader.

Any visitor first scans your layout, and content, because they want to know instantly what your message is about.

Clarity means to explain it to the point without distractions and don’t twist your words or writings around.

So to write clear, you must practice.

  1. Know what you say.
  2. Mean what you write.
  3. Check and proofread before you publish.

4. Organize and schedule for success.

When you blog fulltime, then you must know how to time your blog post for success. I use the scheduling tool a lot for my blog publishing.

You can see my hours at the bottom of the blog.

It is wise to take into account to know various timezones knowing the time can change your viewpoint of blogging.

Conclusion.

Retaining the reader to your blog is a content strategy where you must take into account the landmarks of communication and information of the reader.

When you overdo the primary content creating ways, then the bounce rate is becoming too high.

When your bounce rate is too high, you lose to retain the reader.

To retain the reader to your blog, use my 4 ways.

Those are:

  1. Slogan.
  2. Simple colors.
  3. Write clear to the reader.
  4. Organizing and scheduling for success.

Just like FedEx.

  1. I love this, thank you for sharing
    I agree the simplicity is the way to go. nothing has me clicking out of a blog than a blog that has too much stuff going on or too many ads and popups.
