It’s terribly annoying isn’t it?
How that you try to make a lasting impression.
You want to be a smart wordsmith crafting soul saving articles.
You’re actually doing that, but no one cares. You have no comments, shares or subscribers.
A troubling thought indeed.
You joined the blogging wagon not for the fame or income potential, but because you really want to help others achieve their dreams.
But its looks are though you are wailing and screaming freedom to prisoners who don’t give a damn.
It hurts, it pains and that has to change right now.
Because, what’s the point?
What’s the rationale behind blogging in silence?
The worst part…
You don’t know what you are doing wrong.
Probably a lot.
In this post you’ll learn how to stick in the minds of your readers. Ready?
How To Be Unforgettable
The truth about blogging and writing is this: You need to choose either to be like every other person or choose the path to influence.
Both are called bloggers, both write articles and love to share ideas to the world. Both get traffic.
But at the end, one fails and the others succeed.
And guess who wins?
You guessed right.
Success in blogging is not about how many articles you write and publish. It’s not even about the number of subscribers, backlinks or traffic acquired, but about the people you transformed the change through your words.
Experts stick, they have a way of gaining prominence and standing out.
If you want to be one of them, then you should learn to stick. You can learn it right now. In few easy steps you’ll discover how to be unforgettable, gain massive comments and shares.
So here’s how to stick on the minds of your readers:
1. Change Their Reality
When readers visit your blog, they indirectly give you an opportunity to speak with them.
Because the truth is, many lies are being sold in the blogosphere…
When I joined the blogosphere, I was told content is king and that the more traffic I get the more money I’ll make but those are all lies.
Honestly, that’s not what matters at least for newbie bloggers.
So what does matter?
Build solid and long lasting relationship with people that matter, focus on building your list using pillar and writing articles through guest posting.
Sit, relax and watch your fame soar.
2. Adjust their attitude
Our job as writers is to write to cause positive change to impact and transform the lives of our readers. And it begins by them having a change towards what they do, a change in attitude. Instead of writing for 30 minutes they begin to write a valuable and insightful post.
Isn’t that what you were put here to do?
Let your readers see things as they are and change positively.
If you do that, they’ll respect you, if you do that; they’ll listen to whatever you say from now hence forth
3. Direct Mental Movies
The human brain craves the images and processes it 700 times faster than text.
Yes, that’s the fact, if you want to stick in the minds of your readers, then you must create and direct mental movies in your post.
Transform a bland sentence into an enticing movie, for example; instead of saying “I love to cook rice” you say “I love to cook delicious mouth-watering, salad garnished Rice with chicken…”
When you use this, they’ll remember you forever.
4. Use the Power of SIMPLE
Truly speaking, there’s no point writing a post no one understands.
If you really desire fame, if you want to be remembered, be down to earth simple.
Whatever can be simplified shouldn’t be left hanging.
Break it into simple terms.
Write as to a friend, ask questions, break the news and share the joy. Your readers would care and share everything you post.
Simplicity and clarity.
And that’s the point.
5. Induce Fear and Courage
Generally speaking, every man has seven primary needs:
- The need for survival and enjoyment of food
- Freedom from fear, pain and danger
- The need for sexual companionship
- A comfortable living condition
- The feeling of superiority
- Care, protection and
- Social approval.
Who could ague these things? You and I also desire them, don’t we?
But guess what?
The strongest and most important of them all is freedom from fear, pain and danger.
If you want to quickly stick and be remembered, use the fear factor. Appeal to your readers fear and then point out solutions.
This is one secret used by ads agencies to win more clients and gain influence. And I could bet only a few bloggers are using this right now.
The point? Induce fear but finish with strong courage and hope.
The catch, though?
Don’t use this if you aren’t going to put smiles back on their faces.
5. Show Credibility and Proof
This is important because people want to listen to people who have real proof of what they are talking about.
Don’t go waging what others say or believe.
Let your readers see you’re the right person for the problems they need help with.
Show them how you’ve helped yourself and others and how you can them too.
The bottom line:
If you want to stick in the mind of your readers, then prove it and let them handle the rest.
6. Create your own style
Am hesitant to say this, but the truth is there no point following the crowd.
Hundreds of bloggers are making this critical mistake and its pulling them in the valley of silence.
To succeed and overcome the noise, you should look straight and shun every jargon thrown at you.
Create your own special path; build your own brand, your unique style.
Pat Flynn is an expert in branding and he makes passive income, Jeff Bullas created a tiny bodied image of him. Henneke uses pencils and crayons to draw and make stylish featured images for enchanting marketing.
Here at Successful Blogging?
You guessed right.

So, to create a style, look at other blogs, pull in your creative genius and set sail.
Think of short and interesting stories you could add to your blog post. A mouth-watering illustrations or an awesome logo. Do go with the flow and whatever drives you.
The bottom line?
Create an irresistible style for your business and your readers will come back for more.
What Matters at the End of Our Lives?
Every one of us has a primal need to be remembered. We all want to stick around and motivate the world.
I remember some days ago, a guest post was published on smart blogger by John Yeoman, one of the smartest members of Serious Bloggers Only community.
A friendly fellow and a spirited writer…
As I write this, John has passed on a few weeks back.
I begin to wonder how I would finish my race. What would people say about you?
How many lives would I help? How many people would I save? Who would remember my works when am gone and for how long? This is the only thing that matters at the end of our lives.
It’s your turn.
Give yourself to learning and writing that pays so you’ll be remembered.
You can do it.
So go ahead and stick.
