Content That Resonates With Your Audience
This British blogger credits their high quality content that continually resonates with their audience as the key to having such impressive engagement on their newsletters.
Google Discover requires a different style of content to typical long-form SEO style content.
So the important part is covering topics that your audience is interested in – regardless of what your keyword research tools say.
This can take some getting used, and takes time learning how to target and write them properly but the shorter form content can be a nice change.

Your audience might even start to look forward to receiving your newsletters. The more your content resonates with your audience, the more engagement you’re going to receive on your newsletter, and the more people you’ll have reading your blogs.
Their top tip for engaging with your audience is to start the newsletter off with a joke or quiz. This more personable approach makes your audience feel like they’re having a conversation with you.

The reward for regularly publishing posts and building your audience is absolutely worth the effort.
