September 1, 2018 by Dimo You’ve been told blogging is one of the best ways to keep your customers – current and prospective alike – engaged and familiar with your services. Also, you were told it’s a good way to boost sales and raise income, sure. You heeded their advice. You don’t just blog, you post quality content on a regular basis, you’re even getting replies in your comment section. The traffic keeps pouring in from your social media pages. The views and shares are on a daily increase. But something doesn’t add up, everything looks great, but it seems fewer and fewer people are taking action. Your email list doesn’t grow, and you seem not be making sales. What do you do when you’re in this situation? You can’t go back that’s for sure. Don’t even contemplating giving up. Do you know how many out there want what you have in terms of traffic and social media shares? You’ve come too far to throw it all away. Instead, you can try the following to boost your blog conversion rates. 1. Create a CTA Bar You’ve seen one around in while roaming the internet searching for answers to your content and internet marketing problems. Chances are your site is lacking one of this. A call-to-action bar is an excellent tool to promote your new and exciting offers to your visitors. The good thing is it’s not intrusive since it resides at the top of your page. 2. Use a Light box Pop up You have seen one of these that’s for sure. They can be quite annoying when you’re in a hurry. However, regardless of their intrusiveness at times, there’s no denying their effectiveness in getting you more subscribers daily. 3. Create a Very Persuasive CTA Copy A persuasive call-to-action copy in your conclusion may be all that your site needs to boost blog conversion rate. Devote time to learning how to craft such a CTA. A poor copy may never yield results. 4. Use Slide in CTA These are like the light box popups, but only better. They don’t disrupt your readers’ experience and much like the name only slides into view when your visitors reach a certain point on your page. 5. Make Adjustments Based on Heat Maps There is most likely a part of your site where visitors spend most of their time in. Heat maps are great tools you can use to discover which of your site this is. You can use the results if your findings to make the necessary adjustments that to increase conversion. 6. Links to Next and Previous Post Sometimes a very effective way to increase conversions is to improve engagement and increase the number of time users spend on your site.

This way, users won’t just be glued to your site for hours, but it’ll make conversions easier. 7. Use Tweetables and Social Media Share Plug-ins An excellent example is the Click To Tweet Tool.
