What is the #1 thing that you want people to do when they arrive on your blog? This question was asked over at Pro Blogger.
There’s clearly no wrong or right answer to the question – every blog will have a different approach – but it’s a great question to ask yourself from time to time.
The answer you give could reveal the following:
How you design your blog – your call to the conversion you’re after should be prominent, above the fold and eye catching
What you blog about – your blog posts should, at the very least, relate to your conversion goals and, at best, should lead people to wanting to take the action you’re after.
Your promotional activities – knowing what you want people to do when they arrive on your blog can inform your decisions on where and how to promote your blog.
So what is the number 1 thing that you want people to DO when they arrive on your blog?
My answer…I want you to connect with different communities, ideas, perspectives. I don’t necessarily want everyone to leave a comment.
