The one thing I’ve learned about blogging over the years is that more traffic doesn’t necessarily equate more revenue. Unless you have a loyal blog audience, it’s rare that you will be able to generate a lot of income because it is hard to convert cold traffic into customers.
So, how do you create a loyal blog audience? Well, it comes down to a few variables. For example, responding to comments will help you build a connection with your readers, who will be more likely to come back more often.
Other elements, such as story telling and having opinions, help as well. Eighty-two percent of people prefer following bloggers that have opinions.
To teach you how to create a loyal blog audience, I decided to create an infographic that will show you the steps you need to take.

Out of the three blogs I currently have, Quick Sprout has the most loyal blog audience. The main reason for the loyalty is because I selflessly help everyone, and I even try to respond to every comment.
I know it is time consuming, but it is worth it. If you have time to do only one thing, I recommend that you respond to every single comment you get on your blog. In my opinion, there is no better way to build a connection with your readers than to create a conversation through comments.
So, how else can you create a loyal blog audience?
