“Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation

There is a simple way to build a following.

Answer the questions that your readers have.

People are always searching for knowledge. How do you think Google became an actual verb in almost every language around the world. (If you wonder how I know this, I overheard a conversation the other day in a foreign language in which the only word I recognized was Google and then they both proceeded to pull out their phones.)

What does your audience want?

Where do they want to go?

Why do they do/want/need whatever they do/want/need?

How can you make their lives better?

If you are writing a book or blog, write down the questions and challenges that your readers share. Then, put them in order of highest importance or relevance to the lowest. With that simple exercise, you have a table of contents or an editorial calendar for blog posts or, at the very least, a group of topics to keep you focused and your readers interested.

Can it be that simple?

Yes.

Budding writers want to know what to write about, where they should post, why they need to have a target audience (the most contested question in my practice), and how to consistently write when life gets in the way. I can add subtopics such as using WordPress, having your Facebook posts substitute for a blog, and using LinedIn Pulse. Or, how to identify your target audience, how a narrow niche creates better traction and the power of small. If I add three subtopics to each of these four questions, I have almost three months worth of blog topics.

Can it be that simple?

Yes.

Harness the power of answered questions to build your audience and establish yourself as an expert in your field. You will never be at a loss for content and your will never disappoint your followers.
