If you have those 2 things, it’s much easier to build credibility and trust with your readers by delivering them a ton of value inside of your articles. Ultimately, your readers will determine whether you’re an expert author or not.

Here’s a checklist of things that will likely determine whether or not the reader views you as an expert author:

  • Share the experiences you’ve had in your niche with your readers to build rapport.
  • Help your readers solve common problems in your niche to help position yourself as an expert.
  • Make sure your articles are easy to read and grammatically sound to build credibility.
  • Deliver on the promises you make in your title to build trust with your readers.
  • Make certain the information you deliver in your articles is accurate to position yourself as an author of high integrity with your readers.
  • Write your articles in an entertaining way to captivate your readers and keep them coming back for more.

When analyzing your article analytics, you’ll be able to determine which articles were successful in your reader’s eyes, and which ones weren’t. Think of your article analytics as being the voice of your readers and let the analytics serve as a guide to help you bring out the expert author from within.
