Upgrade Your Blog With These Innovative Ideas

Most blogs tend to be quite similar to one another. This makes it hard for you to really stand out from the crowd and offer things that other blogs can’t. As a result, you might not get the readership figures you’re hoping for, and it can be challenging to bring in a new audience. 

The question is; how can you make your blog stand out?

Well, I have a few ideas that you can try out as I firmly believe they’ll upgrade your blog and give you something extra compared to your competition. 

Add A Shopping Cart

A shopping cart is basically a way of bringing an e-commerce element to your blog. From here, you can sell different things that relate to your blog - and that your audience is willing to buy. It adds a new dimension to your site, and it also means you can make more money. If you choose to do this, make sure you set up a secure online store on your blogging website. You could use things like Netverify AI-powered KYC compliance to keep the identity of your customers nice and secure, ensuring their transactions are only approved when you’re sure it’s them using their card. Look for other security measures to put in place as well - remember, people will be inputting lots of personal data such as their address, card details, etc. So, you need to keep all of this well protected, or you run the risk of people having a bad experience, which damages your blog’s reputation.

Implement Custom Web Design

If you’re a blogger, then there’s a high chance you use things like WordPress to help build your site. This is an excellent tool as it makes your life much easier and you can have a website up in seconds. The downside is that WordPress only has a certain number of themes that you can choose from. The same goes for other tools like this, and it means a lot of blogs look very similar aesthetically. So, to stand out from the crowd, it pays to invest in a bit of custom web design. Hire a designer to create a more unique website - it doesn’t have to be from scratch, they can maybe alter elements of your existing site to make it a bit different from the generic theme. 


Run Regular Competitions

This idea is all about upgrading the user experience on your blog. Give back to your audience by running regular competitions where they can win different things. When combined with your online shopping cart, it means you can give away some of the products you’re selling to the winners. By doing this, you help increase engagement on your blog by getting people to be more involved. Set entry requirements like the need to share your latest post on social media, follow your Twitter page, and so on. It’s a smart marketing technique as well as a way to really bring something extra to your blog.

If you want to take your blog to new heights, then try any of these innovative ideas. They’ll help set you apart from your rivals, meaning you pick up a larger share of the blogging audience.
