How To Promote Your Blog!

How To Promote Your Blog!

If you want to succeed with your blog, then that is the reason you have taken the time to create one, till this date.

Writing posts and publishing the post right after, won’t cut it.

It just won’t

No body will read them and they will most likely be the lonely pillars of an ancient temple somewhere in the desert.

That is the sole purpose of your blog. To be read by the millions, and grasp your ideas through your posts.

The way to present and help your blog get read by as many as possible, is to get that promotion strategy down and followed through with it.

Promoting your blog should be one of the top priorities of your work you are putting into it.

Having a strategy with your promotion is the key to getting the success you are looking for.

 

How to promote your blog?

No problem..

If you are asking this question in your mind right now, fear not!

This article I have written will be just for you.

Promotion will be brought to another level for your blog.

Before you know it, many will be finding out about your blog and that will make your blog have more authority.

 

Guest Posting

If I were to tell you what is the best work to incorporate into your promotion strategy, it would be the phrase from above.

Guest posting.

Guest posting is the process of writing your article and having it be hosted on another blog, other than yours but with the same theme as you. I am sure you already knew that.

But all I know is that you haven’t started to guest post yet, which is a mighty shame.

That way, you will be able to get the targeted traffic that your blog can only survive with. Targeted traffic coming from a guest article is one of the best forms of traffic.

All that traffic will then see and visit your blog and like what they see based on the sick design you have dressed your blog with. Since the traffic is very targeted, the chances of subscribing in any form to your blog is very likely.

One more thing, try to have your article published on a trusted and larger blog in your respected niche. The more authority it has, the better.

 

Strategic Commenting

It has to be targeted commenting.

Let me take that back.

Even if you can’t comment strategically, the best benefits are received by commenting strategically.

I will explain the strategy I have and why I have great success with commenting.

Here it is:

Have five or more blogs that you can handle, and try to be the first commenter on every post.

Have at least half of your written comments be on large blogs that are going to get the most attention for them.

 

Write Strategic Posts

Your posts are the backbone of your blog.

The backbone of a body is very important to the body is one of the reasons you are alive.

Writing posts everyday without any purpose is not blogging.

Sorry, it isn’t.

If your posts are not getting any attention from other bloggers, then it is about time to create some that will.

One of my favorite ways of doing this is by using a list for.

Here is an example that explains this the best:

List about 5 or more articles to your post. After, email each blogger asking them nicely to share and help you promote your article.

Make sure to add a catchy title to your post. That really helps!

 

Make Connections

Success is all about the way you work and the connections you make.

Connections you might have thought only existed in a few industries, but that can not be any further than the truth.

Right before you read this part of this article, you have read about strategic posting.

Well, that is a perfect example on how to create a new connection.

I tell you this because it has worked for me and have started some great connections with some other bloggers.

 

Create YouTube Videos

YouTube has been around for a while now and surprised myself how many bloggers are not utilizing the power of this medium.

I find videos to be one of my favorite ways to learn something new and will almost always watch the video than reading the text.

If you want to get ahead of many blogger, please create more videos and see the crazy results!

 

The Conclusion:

The conclusion is you really need to ramp up your promotion strategy if you are looking to get anywhere in the journey, even if you want a reader or two.

I have provided today with you, ways that are some new and some that need to be used more.

You can’t go wrong with your time on these, since I use these exact same ones for my strategy all of the time.

So, what else do you do for promotion?

    Great post, It’s a full time job driving traffic to a new blog or even a blog that might have been around for a little while, the trick is to make it sticky, create content that people are going to want to come back and read over and over again and their going to want to share it, tutorials are great for that, you can also use case studies and epic step by step guides to make sure readers come back over and over agin to read your material!

    • Samuel Pustea

      Incredible stuff you just said there Alex.

      Couldn’t agree more, and that info works just great into this article I have written.

      Sticky content is key into gaining more subscribers to your blog.

      Thanks for your comment!

    Samuel you have some great ideas on blog promotion I need to work on keeping my commenting to a limited number of blogs, but I try to comment on many blogs.

    I like your ideas. I can use some of them. thanks

    • Samuel Pustea

      Thanks Michael.

      Comment as much as you can, on as many blogs as you can. Just make sure the blogs you comment on bring in some results to your blog.

      Please use some ideas from here and let me know how it goes!

    maybe “Make Connections” is hard to do for me because it is not work as i want

    • Samuel Pustea

      Really Juan, making connections is not that hard to do. Trust me.

      Plus the benefits of making connections is really worth it my friend!

  4. Kris Olin

    Great post, Samuel!

    I really need to have a critical look at writing some guest posts on a few good influential blogs. Most of my time goes on editing posts from my own guest bloggers, and I seldom get to write anything myself anymore.

    Also your tip on YouTube seems interesting. How would you exactly do that if you wanted to promote your posts?

    Cheers,
    Kris

    • Samuel Pustea

      Writing Guest Posts on bigger blogs is key to getting those new visitors to your site.

      I would write a summary of your post and create a short video about that post. Then, link back to it in order to read more.

      Thanks for your comment Kris!

    Hey Samuel, great blog promotion post mate. Admittedly when it comes to guest posting I’m not doing as much as I should be, but I do make more effort connecting with people on social sites and other blogs. Great tips here thanks again.

    • Samuel Pustea

      Guest posting is great, but also your connections you are creating through social media sites is great too :)

      Thanks for your fantastic comment and keep working at your blog too! Excellent blog ;)

  8. Sarah Butland

    Although I’m not usually the first commenter on posts I know the importance of a back link and praising the writing of another author.

    I appreciate learning what others are doing so I can improve my own blogging and meet others who love to write just as much as I do.

    Thanks for reading and writing,

    Sarah Butland
