Do people read at all nowodays?

9 replies
Of course they do, why would everyone here talk about copywriting or reviews.

What kind of bothers me they don´t read word-by-word, but just "fixing" or looking for something.

To be more specific, I have been starting Dog blog - means tons of competitors in quality/ creative photos of dogs. Therefore I write Stories in kind of funny way - its something you can not skip.

Qeustion is, on what audience whould you recommend me to focus? How target ppl who wants to read whole post?

    Uh - oh, I don't know. maybe, 'dog people.'

    That said, I have kept dogs for the past 20 years and have never read a dog blog.

    I think you need to provide more info. What is the purpose of the blog? To drive traffic to another sales page? My first thought is to write compelling headlines and try to generate shares on social media platforms that link to blog. Facebook, Twitter, Instragram, places where people might be looking to be entertained by dog photos and stories.

    I think you have to be more niche specific for example 'dog training blog' or 'dog obediance training blog' not 'dog blog'.

    Personally I love dogs but won't read a random long post about dogs, it's a waste of time for me.

    For the dog niche the best way to gain traction and a following is to create an IG account and post premium quality cute/funny pictures with dogs. If you stay consistent with this you can send your followers to either a funnel or your blog with a pixel on it and retarget them with offers or grab their email address and follow-up with them if you want to create a business around this.

    People reading only what they are interested in.
    I am sure they read some useful information more often than just interesting or entertaining content.

      That sounds like a good plan, as opposed to them reading things they are not interested in.

    Thank you all for your ideas,

    I try to focus on first viewers first, later I would like to use affiliate links on this blog.

    "I am sure they read some useful information more often than just interesting or entertaining content. "

    This is good point. Why would you read some stories from unknown "dog". It brings me to an idea to do more linkbuilding/ commenting to be more visible and more known?

    I don´t want to go on classic way - posting images and hope in gaining thousends of followers in few years.

    It basically depend on the topics, or query. most of people only see the heading, summary.

    Try to focus on old people, they like animals a lot. Of course cats are more likable, but dog will do it to.
