I’ve decided to link to an article from Content Marketing Institute about converting blog readers into customers — even though I have my doubts about some of the suggestions!
I write my blog to express ideas, offer information to others which I’ve found interesting or thought-provoking, and report on what’s going on in my writer/illustrator journey with the hope that a few of my readers might purchase a book of mine or stop by and visit with me at an author’s event. But I’m not a “hard seller,” and am therefore skittish of some of the suggestions made in this article.
Maybe some of my readers who have a product to sell (book or otherwise) will find 11 Ways to convert Blog Readers Into Customers helpful. Do any of you have input on the subject?
