How to Convert Blog Readers Into Customers

You have all this blog traffic, but none of these readers are really turning into customers. So what should you do? Should you invest less money in blogging? Should you spend less time on blogging? Of course not. Today, I’m going to teach you how to convert your blog readers into customers.

This is my homepage. I’ll go to the blog so you can end up seeing it. And over the years, I had the same issue that you’ve had. I get roughly nine million visitors a month, but majority of them weren’t converting, until I learned how to convert those readers into customers.So I’m going to break down how I convert blog readers into customers and how you can do the same.

The first thing I want you to do is make your first blog post a call-to-action for whatever product or service you’re selling. But because if you’re I’m services, I sent it to a lead form.

The second thing I want you to do is have a call-to-action at the very top of your blog that asks people, hey, do you just want the, let’s say you have a blog on fashion. You could have a question here that says I want to learn about, and then they can have any other fashion categories, or, and I’m just refreshing the page so it shows up back to how it originally was, or what you can just do is have a message here saying, do you want to check out my favorite fashion device? And you can have a message here that says, yes, I want to see it. No, thanks, I just want to read more fashion advice or I want to learn more about fashion. And then if they click the note thanks, they can go to the categories that I showed and then they can drop down to anything they want, or if they didn’t click no, thanks, and they click yes, again, send them to the product page.

The third thing I want you to do is add a top bar like I have on the Neilpatel.com website. As I scroll, that bar scrolls with me. And this right here, if they click yes, takes them to the consulting page. Yours will be about your product, your service. And then if they click no, you can either close it or you can take them to another page.

Then the next thing that you’ll notice that I have is if you go into a blog post page.Some are to have a top bar, I also have a bottom bar. This is the next thing that I want you to do. And they just click the call-to-action. Boom, take them to the product page or service page. And what we found here is if you have a service offering, we got an extra 30% increase in conversions by having the lead form right then and there, versus sending them to the consulting page when we tested it out at the bottom.

The next thing I want you to do, and you’ll also notice it on this post, within your blog posts, have call-to-actions for your product or service. You click it, boom, lead form.

The next thing I want you to do is within your sidebar, some people with their blog posts, they just want the full content, I recommend that you have a sidebar. Your sidebar should have multiple call-to-actions that sell your product or service.

And you’re probably wondering at this point, Neil, I don’t have money to hire a custom developer to do all this. How can I do all this without spending an arm and a leg? Well, you can get really affordable developers from Upwork for a few hundred dollars.

Believe it or not, they can do most of this stuff for you. Or if you want to use a tool, you could end up using hello bar.com. And hello bar is a tool that lets you do a lot of this stuff for free, like the top bars and stuff like that. And you can find it @hellobar.com.

Another aspect that I want to teach you, and this is the bonus that I have for you today is, if you actually go, I’m going to Google the term SEO company because people who type in SEO company are my ideal clients.

You’ll notice that I rank, and I have a blog post on the five best SEO companies for whatever date, the year I’m in. And as someone scrolls and reads this, right? And they’re like, all right, number one, number one, my company. And then boom, that sends someone to an ad agency or my ad agency.

The point I’m trying to make here is, you can also create content that drives people to your lead pages as well. So make sure you add call-to-actions for your service offerings as well. And I have here, I’m testing this. It’s actually not working too well. I hope you enjoy reading this blog post.

I hope all this helps you out.

Going viral is tough. Everyone wants to go viral because they want millions and millions of video views. But what if I told you that you can get millions of video views without going viral. Today I'm going to break down how I got 37 million video views without going viral.RESOURCES & LINKS: ____________________________________________Social Blade: https://socialblade.com/Ubersuggest: https://neilpatel.com/ubersuggest/____________________________________________It's probably safe to say I have over 50 million views. That's a lot of views. So how do you do that without going viral? And today I'm going to show you how to do that. The first thing I want you to do is go to Google and google Ubersuggest Chrome extension. And when you type that in, it's the first result, it's chrome.google.com. The URL's really long. So I just want you to Google. Ubersuggest Chrome extension And there's over 200,000 people that use it, install it. And as you can see here, I've already have it installed. And you see that there's this little orange U icon. That's Ubersuggest. And if you don't see it there click the little puzzle piece. And then I want you to pin, click the pin for Ubersuggest, and then you'll see it. Now, when you go back to YouTube and you search for anything. And let's say I type in the word, digital marketing and I'm going to type it in. And the Ubersuggest extension will show you how many people search for digital marketing every single month. And it adds up. And I'll go and create topics on digital marketing and, and based on a look at some of the other videos and what people are doing.And I'll use that to figure out, all right maybe I should create a video on this. And it'll tell me not just what the search volume is for that keyword but it'll also give me other recommendations in the right sidebar. So that way I have more ideas of the keywords that I could be doing. The next thing I want you to do is go to neilpatel.com/ubersuggest, so that way you can get a bigger list ideas. And I want you to type in some of the competitors in your space. So let's say your competitor is Neil Patel, being me. And when you type in a domain name like Neil Patel you'll get a traffic overview where you see the popularity of a website over time and how much traffic they're going. But I want you to click in the left navigation keywords by traffic. And when you click on keywords by traffic just make sure you put in their domain name. And you'll see all the keywords that I'm ranking for. Not necessarily getting this many visits, which is volume. Estimated visits is on the right side. But you can see by volume what keywords are searched a lot being Reddit, news, Google ad words, you know, Google my business, Discord bots Quora, blogging, vlogging search engine optimization, SEO, advanced search on Twitter, Twitter advanced search, copywriting, search engines, influencers. And when you do this for your competition and you keep scrolling, a lot of the keywords won't be relevant for you. Some of them will be, any of the ones that are it'll give you ideas for keywords that you could be targeting. I'm using Ubersuggest to find all the other domains that have a lot, that are in my category. Like if this one is on, I think we saw podcasts advertising or podcasts topics. Or let's go, What? I don't know, content marketing, click on it. And then I can see all the other sites that rank for content marketing. One of the ones that ranks at the top is content marketing institute. Then I can go, Ima copy their domain here, go to keywords by traffic. And I can end up going through content marketing institute and then seeing, all right what are all the keywords that they're using as well? And this will give me good ideas on more keywords that I can create videos on. And when you create hundreds and hundreds of videos like I did, I know it takes time. You'll get the millions of views. Don't rely on going viral. You can't predict that, but you can predict that if you create tons of videos that are useful and helpful, each video may get five 10,000 views a month or even 2000 views a month. But when you have so many, it'll add up and over the years you'll get millions and millions of views and generate tons of revenue from it. Play the numbers game, create quality content in quantity when it comes to videos, put it on all the social sites out there you'll get the traffic, you'll get the views. You'll get the revenue from it, you'll get the brand awareness. And it's the long game. It works. Stop trying to waste your time going viral.
