Treat Your Readers Like Customers
1. Survey your customers
makes it easy to create a survey.
2. Make your key customers feel special. Send an email message to a client about a great resource you found.
3. Encourage loyalty.
Make it easy for readers to contact you with easy to find (and use) contact forms. Let readers sign up to get updates by email. Add options for subscribers to get updates to comments with Subscribe to Comments
5. Engage your fellow bloggers. Read other blogs, comment on their posts, create a community of bloggers you chat/interact with regularly.
6. Educate your customers. Your mission is more altruistic than self-promotion.
7. Create trust. Build trust with your readers by treating them like your customers.
