    How would one work on the being naturally humorous if they are quite the opposite? Asking for a friend (just kidding). Great article!! I will be sure to try these out when I have a chance. Post engagement is imperative to running a successful blog/page/site.

    Hi Michael,
    Very true!
    Every aspect of a market offering, including the nature of the product itself, is driven by the needs and wants of potential consumers.

      Yes, and it all begins with user retention through engaging practices 😉

    I have been known on rare occasion to experiment with #4 Elvis. But only here and there. Just dabbling a bit 🙂 Really, adding humor to my blog and travel stories has helped boost engagement like you wouldn’t believe. Sometimes I even distract folks with my humor, which is not intended but I get a kick out of it. A member of a travel blog tribe sharing group forgot to tweet one of my posts the other day. I could care less but the admin reminded her. She apologized, but said headline grabbed her attention and she had to read the post, and got so caught up in it that she forget to RT it. Title:

    Rocking post dude.

      Lol yes, trust me Ryan, I have gotten distracted by your humor once in a while. And that’s a great thing. Even if it’s not downright humorous, the occasional tongue-in-cheek stuff just makes everything stand out …depending on the occasion.

      There was a post on Clickfire.com recently that read, “How to write a blog post your worst enemy will share.” Chances are I wouldn’t have clicked/shared it if the headline was more traditional. So that was another fine example of effective humorous marketing.

    Thanks for these tips. Yes, I’ve been seeing more humor and surveys and a ton of gifs. I guess we all need to “up our game” to stay relevant. Great examples here, too.

      As long as I don’t have to use emojis too often. Even the word itself annoys me.

      Lol, thanks Lucia
