Improve Your Blog By Writing Great Sales Pitch
Sales pitch is very important for bloggers. It helps you to make your blog successful. You might be wondering why it is important for all bloggers to have a sales pitch.
What is a sales pitch?
A sales pitch refers to describing your product or service in a very short span of time. It is something that gives information to your potential customer (or readers in this case) in less than 60 seconds.
The first minute is very important if you want to convert a new reader into a potential subscriber of your blog. Hence providing maximum information about you as a blogger and the topics covered on your blog is of utmost importance in order to get the new readers interested. This will help them stick to your blog and go through some of your posts as opposed to moving on to another blog during the first 60 seconds.
The goal of a blogger must be to grab the attention of a new reader and encourage him to know more about you as a blogger (and your blog).

As a blogger, you must be clear in your mind about the topic that you want to cover on your blog. It is always better to have a narrow niche as compared to covering all the topics under the sun.

Narrowing down your niche and having a sales pitch will help you develop all the aspects of your blog including

If a reader is not happy by your blog title and description, he may leave your blog and may never return. Getting them hooked to your blog is the first step in building a relationship with your readers.
2. About me page
This is an ideal page for a blogger to communicate extensively with his new readers. An about me page must include a blogger’s bio and his achievements in this field. In addition, he may include in brief the reasons for starting his blog and goals that he wants to achieve with this blog. If used effectively, it helps to get new readers to subscribe to your blog.
3. Social media profiles
Social media is one of the major sources of traffic to many blogs. Unlike search engines where one needs to wait for the blog post indexing before receiving any traffic, social media can bring traffic to blog almost instantaneously. Profile on social media websites must be such that it compels others to know more about you by visiting your blog.
