One of the most effective ways to build a community is to invite your reader to leave a comment.
Example: Do you use any of these calls to action in your blog post? If so please tell us about it in the comments box below.
When you have blog subscribers, then you are able to deliver your content straight into their inbox every time you publish a new article. This will increase your chances of gaining views, social shares, comments and leads.
Example: Found the article useful? Subscribe to our blog by adding your email address to the form on the right. You’ll be the first to hear about our updates!
Then perhaps add a “Subscribe Today” button below the form.
3.Submit an Inquiry
Most readers are not ready to buy after they have read your blog post. So invite them to ask for more information about what you have written.
Your readers may not be ready to contact you at this time. So provide links to relevant content to further educate your readers and keep them on your website. Example: Are you wondering why less traffic to your website could actually be good for you? Check out “Part 2 of series on Art of Blogging for Business - Long Tail Keywords”
Maybe your readers are ready to make a purchase after reading your blog post. Then give them an extra push towards purchasing.
