Little Secrets Of Growing Your Blog’s Audience

When you start writing a blog, it’s easy to dream of turning your writing hobby into a full-time income. Unfortunately, turning your personal blog into a business blog takes a lot of time. While it isn’t impossible, it’s fair to say that you can’t go far if you don’t have the volumes of visitors. You need your blog to be read, shared, and appreciated by thousands of people to be able to monetise it effectively. In other words, you can’t become a professional blogger until you grow your blog’s audience. Sounds tricky? Don’t worry, all it takes to reach your goals is a little know-how.

Attract more readers

Finding a style that works

As a blogger, appealing to your reader is your top priority. These readers, however, are diverse. In fact, most successful blogs have an international customer base, meaning that as a writer you need to master the art of conveying a message even if you’re talking to someone whose first language isn’t English. Bear in mind that most people improve their language skills through media, from listening to music to watching their favourite shows. So, it’s important that you keep your writing accessible and targeted. You’ll be able to attract more readers if your articles are clear and easy to read.

Giving your blog a professional presence

Your blog may not be in a position to generate much revenue at the moment, but it doesn’t mean you can’t treat it like a real business. Blogs that maintain a professional presence – using virtual addresses instead of personal home addresses and sticking to a content guideline – tend to appear trustworthy to their readers. You should also ensure that you have business cards made with your blog URL and logo, especially if you decide to join networking events. Finally, transparency is a major factor of growth; readers prefer to know a little about their blogger. You don’t need to reveal all your personal secrets, but an about me page can make a great deal of difference.

Does your blog have a business card?

SEO like a pro

Online content needs to appear on search engines. You probably have already heard of the magical term, SEO – Search Engine Optimization. If you’re not an enthusiastic digital marketer, you may not find in-depth guidelines useful. You need to get the basics right first! Ultimately, search engines rank your content higher when you address current issues with original and helpful content. As you create exciting content, you’re also more likely to receive natural backlinks, ergo to boost your SEO rankings.

Shout about it

Last, but not least, professional bloggers rely heavily on their social media presence to reach out their audience. Not all social media platforms are the same in this instance. Visual creatives prefer to share their photos and videos on Instagram, while news and business topics can thrive on Twitter and LinkedIn. There is no miracle formula for bloggers. It’s only the effective combination of social media platforms that can get you noticed. However, remember that social media users can interact with your posts. Users can talk back; don’t ignore them.

As bloggers would say, to #GrowYourAudience, you need to manage your interactions with readers on a variety of levels: From the style, you choose to write to how you use social media. Interactions are at the core of your growth.

Stop Buying Checks from Your Bank- 4 Reasons Why

Image: https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/08/23/10/24/cheques-2672195_960_720.jpg

You might be under the impression that banks are the only places from where you can get new checkbooks. Whether you are a business person who frequently uses checks or a personal user, suddenly running out check paper can be unnerving. Your first instinct would be to call up the bank and order a new checkbook. However, there are two major drawbacks of ordering checks from banks. Firstly, you would end up paying way more than you should. A slim checkbook for personal and business usage often costs upwards of $30 when ordering directly from banks. Barring the unreasonably hiked rates, banks also take way more time to fulfil the order than independent check printers. A new checkbook can take days and often weeks to arrive at your doorstep, which is enough to stall business operations. Instead of contacting the bank you can get overnight checks online and get the new checkbook delivered within 24 hours. No matter who you are, following are 4 reasons why you need to stop ordering checks from your bank.

Overnight Delivery: Only a select few banks offer a rush delivery option. Even with rush delivery, shipments of new checkbook can take days to arrive. Fortunately, there are a few check printing firms online that offer free guaranteed overnight check delivery. This is an option that’s almost never offered by the banks. Mainly because banks source the checks from vendors and thus cannot directly oversee the check printing and delivery process.

Cheaper Rate: When you buy checks from banks you invariably pay a hiked rate. As mentioned previously, banks buy checks from check printing vendors and then they sell it to customers for a profit. However, when your order business and personal checks online you directly order them from check printing firms. By cutting out the middleman, you are able to save a significant amount. Now if you are a personal user who seldom uses checks then this might be willing to pay the few extra bucks. However, business check users often end up saving hundreds of dollars each year simply by switching from their banks to online check printing sites.

More Security Features: While banks are often slow to adopt new security measures, independent check printing firms are not. Customers, therefore, enjoy a certain degree of freedom when choosing the security measures, they are willing to pay for. A standard check comes with all the usual security features indicated by the trusty padlock logo. More expensive security checks come with advanced security features including fluorescent fiber weaving and heat reactive paper. If you are in the business of writing a lot of paper checks to random vendors and individuals, paying extra for a few additional security features makes much sense.

More Customizability: Another advantage of skipping the bank when ordering checks is customizability. Apart from adding business details, there is little you get to choose when ordering the checks from banks. Offering an extensive range of customizable options, independent sellers allow you to select the check paper color, add in extra memo lines, upload a custom background, and a whole lot more.

When it comes to men’s fashion. I know most of you are pretty pleased to these Italian brands than to others.

What is the greatest video game cover ever created?

Me and my sister grew playing video games and the way we choose the video disc was where in the cover. Yes! actually, back in the 90’s Nintendo, Japanese gaming company, produces a lot of games to choose from with for your family computer and my sister and I are too thrilled to try them all but we cant as we just have limited budget to spend at times hence we both decided to just pick the game which has the best game cover as we are sure that the cover itself plays a big marketing strategy to sell the item or game they trying to offer.

So the question is..

How many times have you been interested in playing a game thanks to the cover art catching your eye?

With hundreds, if not thousands, of titles to choose from depending on which console you own, many publishers and developers will take their time creating a cover for their video game so that it grabs the attention and hopefully leads to a gamer choosing that title over the many others on a store shelf.

To find out which is the greatest video game cover ever created, managed print specialist United Carlton has set out this shortlist of five standout examples. Check out their picks then head onto their Twitter page to let them know which one you believe to be the best, or if you have any favourites that we haven’t covered.

Heavy Rain

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Heavy-Rain-PS3/dp/B002BWONF8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714153&sr=8-2&keywords=heavy+rain)

The cover of Heavy Rain does an excellent job of making the art of origami look incredibly dramatic. What’s particularly great about this is that you will actually have to play the game to grasp the meaning behind the cover’s image.

With the origami figure slowly being destroyed by the pouring rain, the cover also fits perfectly with the game’s dark, moody and unusual tone and visual style.

Limbo

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/limbo-171641)

Twisted, terrifying, dark, minimalist and unsettling are all words that can be used to describe the 2010 Indie fan favourite game Limbo.

The game’s cover art is reflective of all of these words too, with the black-and-white image of a faceless child wandering into the light having a creepy tone to it but also one which makes you want to explore just what this puzzle game is about.

Borderlands

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/2K-Games-Borderlands-Xbox-360/dp/B0026IBHHY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714175&sr=8-2&keywords=borderlands)

How do you make your IP stand out when it’s going up against sure-fire hits like Halo 3: ODST and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2? When it comes to Gearbox Software and the original Borderlands game, the answer was simple: create a cover that catches the eye and is rather controversial.

Instead of featuring the game’s protagonist, the cover featured a bandit from the RPG shooter pretending to shoot himself in the head along with a glimpse into the game being the splatter. All dressed up in a cartoon style complete with heavy cell shading to reflect the game’s unique art direction.

Ico

(Cover art can be seen here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-ICO/dp/B00005UJSY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476714211&sr=8-2&keywords=ico)

Boy meets girl is one of the most traditional stories that you can think of, though Ico did a fine job of wrapping this theme up in a soft-spoken and artistic game.

The cover of Ico works perfectly in that it demonstrates that this puzzle game is doing something that is different from the norm, while also being as minimalistic as the open space that games get to explore once the disc loads.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

(Cover art can be seen here: http://www.game.co.uk/en/uncharted-2-among-thieves-38971)

Sometimes a game cover creates itself from the action that you discover by actually playing the game. This is certainly the case for the cover of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Anyone who has played this pulsating action game is sure to remember the heart-pounding mission of trying to escape a derailed train, so the cover is effective in providing a glimpse about the thrilling ride you have waiting for you.

Not checking their body

It’s so important that men check their body regularly so they spot changes sooner rather than later. It only takes a few minutes in the shower to have a feel of your body to ensure no lumps have appeared. You can also check in the mirror to see if there are any changes to your body. It’s so important to check everywhere including your testicles. After all, there are over 2000 reported cases of testicular cancer every year. But with people going earlier to the doctors, there is a much higher percentage surviving the disease. Therefore, always check your body and go to the doctor if you are worried. That way, you are more likely to catch it earlier, and you can have a long and happy future.

Not getting tested regularly

It’s so important for guys to get tested regularly for STI’s to ensure they keep their sexual health in check. A lot of STI’s such as chlamydia don’t have any signs, so you might have it without realising. If it doesn’t get treated, you may have issues with infertility in the future. And as you can read about on NHS’s site, it can even spread to the testicles causing them to become swollen. Therefore, you should ensure you get checked out regularly before having any more sexual intercourse. If you do have it, you will need chlamydia treatment which comes in the form of Azithromycin tablets. As well as you needing the treatment, you will need to inform the girls who you have slept with since contracting the disease.

Not talking about depression

You will be surprised to know that depression affects one in four men in the UK. But mainly down to the social stigma, they aren’t willing to seek help for the disorder. But it’s so important to find some help so that you can live a happy life again. If you don’t do anything about it, the condition is likely to worsen and affect your relationships and work life. As we discussed previously, with the right treatment for depression, your life will be returned to you in new ways.

Not drinking moderately

We all love a good couple of pints on a night out. It’s an ideal way to chill out after a stressful week at work. But you need to ensure you are drinking moderately; it’s recommended that you should not drink any more than 14 units a week to stay healthy. But a lot of people are binge drinking on a regular basis. Over time, binge drinking can damage your liver and weaken your heart. Therefore, you need to cut down your alcohol intake so that you can keep healthy on the long-term.
