Interesting and boring are subjective. If you've got the right audience (people who might actually be interested in your product) there are ways to give them content that's interesting and relevant to your brand.

Now with that being said, if you sell light bulbs and you're acting like you sell sports cars, then yes you're doing it wrong. But there are plenty of great examples of brands that are in so called "boring" industries that are doing both interesting and relevant work on social media.

This article praise "Simplicity is better" tactic. Yes! This is absolutely true; especially to human users. Simple posts are more authoritative in voice than long-winded ones.

Yes, and I am a fan of straight forward language. Keep to stupid and simple.

Agreed. Same goes for CTAs in social. If you want your users to take a specific action, don't beat around the bush. Tell them exactly what they should be doing and why they should be doing it.

The article looks great.The images used look nice,one way to make a blog more appealing,the content seems okay.Content should not be designed with seo in mind.Rather,just come up with amazing,original content and the rest will follow.Many fail to get this part right and come up with material too boring and incomprehensible for the readers.A few simple keywords will do the trick.
Other ways you can boost the traffic include:
-Run campaigns-creative posts around what the blog is all about
-Use apps which will help you attract lots of new audience and a good place to start is AppBistro.com
-Link to twitter and other social media platforms
-Facebook ads with creative images that will improve the CTR

Interesting article..
I think communication is the key success.. If you communicate well with your audience, you will get your desired response and you will capture the targeted audience quickly and easily..
