Steps for Blog Promotion
These steps for blog promotion are in no particular order so do it in whatever way works for you.
1. Social Media
Social media. That’s where all the people be – yo!
If you want the people to come to you, go to the people. Whether you’re interacting with them on their own profiles, boosting posts on your fan page or in groups, don’t neglect people. Get in the trenches and find out what people want to know about.
Social media is a great place for research, but it’s also a great place to find people that are looking for the answers your blog post provides. Promote your blog post on your profile, fan page and in groups that allow it. You need to get eyes on your content, or there is no use creating it.
People love video because it is fun and easy. Reading means you have to take time away from what you’re doing – but video, on the other hand, does all the work for you. Make videos you don’t necessarily have to watch to get value from because people will be able to play it without looking and still understand the message.
Many forums allow you to have a signature at the bottom of your posts. You can put your blog link there, so it shows at the bottom of posts that you make.
4. Blog Commenting
Comment on blogs that are similar to your blog and have an audience that would be interested in your content. Your comments should be helpful and add value to the blog, so they aren’t spammy. Most blogs have a section you can type your website in whenever you comment so put your blog post URL there.
These are super simple ways to promote your blog and will have you off to the races for blog promo.
