Revealed The Simple Tactic to Get More People Addicted to Your Blog

The Surprisingly Simple Secret to Getting People Addicted to Your Blog


Do you know how to hook readers to your blog?



First of all, you need to make sure that your readers know that you UNDERSTAND them.


But how?


One of the key ways you can do this is by making sure that you prove that you’re getting what your readers are going through,  and get them coming back for more by:


  1. Actually understand what they’re going through
  2. Can help them


So, How Do You Prove That You Understand Them?


You use what is known as The Toyota Production System 5 Whys Method.


What exactly is the 5 Whys Method?

  • Its’s a super simple technique that’ll help you get to the heart of why someone would even read your blog post in the first place.
  • All you need to do is start with a problem your readers are struggling with, and ask why five times.
  • Asking why this many times will help you uncover the deep-rooted reason someone wants to solve that problem.



The Key in All This is Really Knowing Who Your Readers Are

  • So, do the research first. Or else you’ll just end up driving yourself crazy trying to figure out what’s going on in the mind of your readers.
  • Once you’ve uncovered why someone cares about what you’re talking about, and you know the problems and pains they’re struggling with, you’re ready to take the next step.
  • You’re going to use that information in the opening of your blog post to help your readers appreciate that you totally get them.

This will draw them in to the post and make it more likely that they’ll keep reading. And the more they read, the greater opportunity you have to get them to like and trust you enough to sign up for your email list – and maybe even buy something from you down the road.


All you are doing is painting a picture for the readers of what life is like right now with a hidden promise that, within the blog post, you are going to help them overcome their problem.


It’s Really a Simple Two-Step Process

Step 1: Uncover why someone would care about reading your post.

Step 2: Talk about that in the introduction so you can draw people in.



It’s all about knowing what’s going on in the minds of your readers and helping them see that you get them, and can help them.



Once you master that, it’ll be a lot harder for people to peel their eyes off of your blog.



Right now, go try out the 5 Whys Method and write the intro to your next blog post using what you uncover.

  1. Hi Joan! What an interesting idea. I had never thought about that approach before but it does make a lot of sense. I realize that recognizing who are my potential readers and doing my best to write for them is essential. But backing that up each and every time in the opening paragraph is just good advice. Thanks. ~Kathy

  2. Good introduction to any blog article is very important – because it help readers have an idea of what they are about to read and research help the writer keep up to date with the current information. thanks for sharing.

  3. It seems a lot of things come down to asking why, doesn’t it? It reminds me of when my daughters were about 3 years old and I would love to see how many times they’d ask “Why?” But seriously, getting into the mind of your client is definitely key to writing blog posts that will keep them coming back.

    • It sure does Lisa 🙂 It is all about getting into the minds of your clients and getting them coming back again and again! Appreciate your feedback, thank you!

    Thanks Joan. That’s a great idea of incorporating a why response into the introductory paragraph. I will be adding that into my blog structure.

  6. This sounds like a great way to approach writing, Joan. Yes, we are constantly being reminded to find the ‘why’, not only ours, but our readers and clients too. I appreciate the reminder to begin with the why in mind too. It can shape the way we write what we write. I believe all of life is about the ‘whys’ too.

    • Absolutely, all of life is about those “whys” as well! Totally agree with you Beverley! Thanks so much for your comment, always appreciated 🙂

  7. Hi Joan and thank you. I love it! I’d not heard of this 5 question method before but it makes perfect sense and I’ll most definitely be using it while planning each post now. We are taught to cater to needs and this explains exactly how to work it out.

  8. Hi Joan,

    These are excellent points and a solid strategy to follow.

    Get your readers addicted to your blog by demonstrating that (1) you know what their problems are, and (2) you have solutions to those problems that will improve their lives.


  9. Asking “why” 5 times is a great approach. I don’t put a number to it during my coaching calls, but I do keep asking “why” until I get to the underlying feeling. That’s what motivates us — or stops us.

  10. Hi Joan,

    Great tips by the way, well these are some superlative points with the help of these strategies one can get more people addicted to our blog.

    Many thanks for your lovely share 🙂
