Five Creative Ways to Get Eyeballs to Your Content

Creative Ways to Get Eyeballs to Your Content
Content is king – while there is no denying that fact, it’s equally important to ensure that quality content gets the attention it deserves. Whether it’s blogs, social media profiles or websites, getting eyeballs to your content could be a challenging task. Hence, you must device creative ways to get eyeballs to your content.

I’ve often come across several websites which offer amazing content but do a poor job of marketing themselves. Similarly, the Internet has thousands of blogs with insightful and interesting information but they don’t do enough to get those important eyeballs to their content.

In this post, I walk you through 5 tips that can help get more eyeballs to your content.


A picture is worth a thousand words – this good old mantra still holds true. In fact, I personally experience this every day. I visit hundreds of new websites every week and the ones with interesting pictures immediately strike a chord in my mind. In fact, most people remember quality content using an image as a reference and anchor. If you’ve produced great content, support it with a picture that leaves an everlasting impression on the readers.


The Title Says It All – most people use content’s title as the criteria to decide whether to read the whole piece or not. If you use a mundane, uninteresting title, your content is likely to go unnoticed. On the other hand, if you use a catchy, informative, appealing title, it serves as an encouragement for readers to go ahead and read your piece. It builds expectations for a reader that they’re about to read a content with quality embedded in it.


Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or even Pinterest, social media has been a blessing for content producers and consumers alike. Social media serves as a great ambassador for spreading the reach of your content on a global level. Once you’ve produced quality content, you’d want to leverage your social media presence to spread the word and get more eyeballs to your website or blog.

Social Media

Social media is already the leading mainstream application on the Internet. Facebook has overtaken Google as the world’s most popular website and I reckon that social media will continue to grow at an explosive pace during the next three years. While it would be hard in the near future to build another social network of the stature of Facebook, I expect several new and interesting social networks such as Quora and Pinterest to emerge as noticeable attributor of content in the next few years.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Make your content SEO friendly. If your piece shows up higher in search results, there’s a greater likelihood of it being read by a wider audience. A solid SEO strategy can help build sustainable traffic for your content and is a golden testimony to that belief.

    There’s a typo, The 5th item reads ‘Sear engine optimisation’ i’m guessing it should be ‘Search’, otherwise, great article!

    Nice post.

    It is true that a great headline will grab peoples attention.

    Kevin Lau tweeted your post and the headline grabbed my attention. Every successful marketer (online and offline) know the value of an attention grabbing headline. Since I just learned that this is one of the success keys (especially after just attending the No Excuses Summit 3) I decided to click on the link just to see what you had posted.

    I think one of the best things about your post is that it highlights 5 FREE methods of “getting eyeballs”. There are other effective ways of getting eyeballs, but they also require a bit of money to get them. Free is good!

    Just getting started with blogging and online business (www dot truthful-solutions dot com) and I found your post helpful to me, as it helps to remind me of 5 important keys to keep in mind as I write my content.

    Thanks a bunch!

     Douglas, what can I say? The light above my head is glowing intensely! Ideas are coming! We recently launched an online retail business & it is ” AAAAArgh!” – so frustrating! We don’t sell ourselves well at all! Watching your video … wow… where can I start? Your content is fantastic!
    Regarding this post, one thing stands out for me is the photographic content! You are spot on. The posts I’ve seen with the most comments are the ones pictorially strong!

    I agree Douglas! Also, if I may add. I like to see paragraphs broken up. Not all bunched together. Subtitles help a lot. If they’re not used, making some of the words stand out helps the wording to be easy on the eyes. If I see content that goes on and on with no break, I don’t even begin to read it! It just seems too long for me.

    A motivating talk that is related to casino and betting agencies is definitely worth a comment. There’s no doubt that that you should publish more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t discuss such topics.Casino internet betting is actually the most effective and risk-free way to place your bets at the moment. The deposit bonuses and special offers are usually an attractive feature for online poker. Most people will likely never get these options in any traditional casino.

    I believe that avoiding refined foods will be the first step to help lose weight. They will taste very good, but processed foods have very little nutritional value, making you try to eat more to have enough energy to get with the day. For anyone who is constantly feeding on these foods, changing to grain and other complex carbohydrates will help you to have more energy while eating less. Great blog post.
