Keep Your Blog Visitors Coming Back

Every blogger wants the same thing:  to keep your blog visitors coming back.  When you have repeat readers, you have a chance to build community and credibility.  Making sales to regular readers is easier than to first-time blog visitors.  You can introduce your goods and services to your audience and create buzz about new launches.
