Content may be king, but connection is essential to build a community of regular readers. We’re looking forward to learning the “3-step Formula for Connecting with Your Reader and Converting Her to a Loyal Fan“ with Kelly Holmes at our Dallas conference in September. We asked Kelly a few questions to help attendees build a connection with her beforehand.
What interested you in teaching at SoFabU On The Road?
We’ve all been to conferences where you get a ton of great ideas you’re excited to implement. But then you get back to the daily grind and don’t implement anything. What I love about SoFabU On The Road is that you get a great idea and implement it on the spot. I want to be part of that.
What is the number one takeaway you want students to learn from your session?
You can publish amazing recipes or DIY tutorials or kid craft ideas, but if you fail to connect with the reader? She won’t stick around. She won’t come back for more. Our readers crave connection. When you focus on building that connection as your top priority, you’ll convert visitors into true fans who keep coming back.
What animal best represents you and why?
I’d be a honey badger because he doesn’t let the haters and trolls get him down.
What is one thing you wish you could go back and tell yourself when you were a new blogger?
If you tell a good story, people will listen.
And the most important question of all: cake or pie?
Both. Plus ice cream on top.
Thank you for sharing with us, Kelly! Don’t miss our Dallas event. We recommend registering today – seats are limited.
