In your blog, whatever you are offering them, is the only what you are showing to your readers. Be ready to answer any question that might arise by your readers. Do not shut them off because you feel you can’t answer them.
Traffic equals conversion, so treat your readers as your customers and as you all know customers are always right. Build a strong relationship with your readers and customers.
As you go on answering or just checking out comments from the readers, you are likely to meet one reader who is out there to make you feel worthless, or he/she doesn’t agree with what you are saying in your posts.
I always approve nice comments and watch the reaction of other readers. You can choose to ignore or you can be reasonable an d make them aware of why you are (dis)agreeing with them. Now that you have gained a reputation and you have ideas to write about on your good looking blog, a question will arise about who would visit your site and where will they come from.
In this article, many ways of getting traffic to your blog has been discussed, which would definitely lead to you getting funds.

Whenever you publish anything you can post it into your timeline and many of your friends will visit the blog.The best time to post on Facebook is on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9pm-10pm. This is the time many people are relaxed, either they are recovering from Monday blues or looking forward to the weekend, so they will have time to check their timeline.
Do not post more than 2 posts. One needs to get enough exposure.
Use photos, this is vital, you know pictures and images work wonders. Boost your posts by choosing an audience and budget. You need to promote your blog by upgrading your Facebook pages which is not expensive.
