101 Ways To Promote Your Blog & Get More Visitors (Right Now!)
I am searching for someone who can write high-quality articles for my dogs blog. However, I have looked and looked but see no reference to Headlines and that if they are relevant Google and others love them as all they are really looking for is latest news…If we think of the search engines as news aggregators we won’t go far wrong, look at what first appears when you put a general search query into an SE – if it is topical – which all posts should be, it is generally the newspages that come up first – so, my point has been made….I hope….
At the end of the day, though, blog posts remain articles and still require hard work and planning to put together – and one should not be duped into thinking that blog posts necessarily deserve to be compensated less than a so-called traditional article.
Targeted blogging about your products and services, coupled with your geography, use cases, specials and coupons help make certain you have the right organized content online to ensure you show up for the searches that you just spent a fortune creating demand for through traditional advertising.
Blogger reviews are essential for the publisher—not only because you recommend books to your audience, but also because early enthusiasm for a new book builds support for that title with retailers, helps the author understand how to better connect with their fans, and helps the publisher gain internal support for marketing that title.
And since your blog is your business, make sure you don’t neglect business tasks, such as accounting, marketing, following up on invoices, providing customer service, and so on. Write down all the regular tasks you need to complete and assign them to different days of the week.
My business is in the Holistic Health and Fitness area and my niche is focused on my ideal client, Health-Conscious Active Women either athletes or recreational sport lovers who are seeking the best of health, fitness and well-being so they can be consistently well and free of illness and be out there doing their sport they love without injuries and sickness.
Leverage Hashtags When Promoting Your Articles on Social Media: You can also boost your readership by using #hashtags when promoting your articles on social media; by using relevant hashtags, you’ll make your content discoverable when people search for content in your niche, and you’ll also benefit should an hashtag you use become trending around the time you used it.
As I mentioned at the very beginning of this post, there are many more great books for bloggers that I’ve not mentioned here, but if you’d like to add one to the list, please feel free to email me the title and author name, and maybe share with me; ‘In what way the book has helped you with your blog’.
In this way, business blogging acts in the role of a sales person – having conversations with prospects about their interests that relate to your business services, their concerns and barriers to purchase, and demonstrating your expertise and approach to what you do. Blogging makes social media marketing and email marketing far more easy, leading the key message or theme of the week or month.
I’d caution you to be careful with any statistics tracking, whether web, social, or otherwise because as long as you have a happy audience and consistent growth, you’re doing well and probably don’t need to get stuck comparing your blog to others or feeling down if your Twitter followers haven’t gone up in a while.
Syndicate Your Content to Top Blogs: Many top blogs and networks will allow you to republish your content on their site with credit back to you; most big blogs, including mega publications like Business Insider and Huffington Post, do it if they feel that your content is good enough.
