Having your blog set up doesn’t instantly mean that people will be running all over themselves to read it. To help them along, you’ll want to employ some blog marketing skills.
Yeah, marketing is also a part of having a blog. That is why this is a post on how to market your blog.
Marketing isn’t just about driving as many people to your blog as possible; it also means engaging them and keeping them as loyal readers. It means having a loyal and sustainable following.
That is why blogging is a really good way to grow your online business, it might be slow at the beginning but in the long run you’ll be glad you started your blog.
So, how do you drive hordes of readers to your blog on a regular basis? I think this where a lot of bloggers drop the ball.
But I will share with you a few ways on how to market your blog. Keep on reading to find out.
A Few Ways On How To Market Your Blog
1.Build up your readers trust in you.
Look, people come to your blog in the hopes they can find something useful. They don’t want to see tons of ads designed to make you a quick buck.
Thats also a way to keep people distracted and not focusing on what you want them to focus on.
Focus on being helpful and giving information that helps them. Give your readers what they’re looking for, no matter what your niche is. Make a good first impression and it will keep them coming back to your blog.
2.Make it easy for your readers to spread the word.
Make sure your posts have a Share option for the social media sites that are relevant to your audience, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. With these available, it’s easy for your readers to spread your posts to their network.
3. Collaborate with bloggers from your niche.
There is definitely strength in numbers. I believe bloggers don’t have to be in competition with each other for readership, they can actually help each other by sharing information and linking with each others pages.
You can gain an instant following if a blog leader of a particular niche does you the great favor of linking to your site. So make an effort to look for bloggers with the same interest as yours and start interacting with them.
Comment on their pages, link to their sites, show the proper respect and appreciation, and you’ll find you’ll get the same right back.
4.Use other social media tools.
When I think of other social media tools I instantly go to YouTube. You might not think it but YT is social media site, it’s not just about uploading videos but also interacting with the people that follow you.
Slideshare is also another great tool to drive traffic to your site. Check out this blog post I wrote about Slideshare Marketing.
So, make a few videos, put them up on Facebook and YouTube to maximize your traffic. Theres a lot you can do, so keep your eyes and mind wide open.
5.Optimize your blog with long tail keywords.
Googles Keyword Planner will help you a lot here. Keywords put you on the map of Google and Yahoo searches, but long-tail keywords will move you up to the front pages of searches by focusing on a particular group of people.
Its true that this group will be smaller, but they will be the ones who’ll want to read your content. These are the people that will be your best readers and customers.
So, going with the keyword movie reviews is not equal to 2011 sci-fi movie reviews.
These are few of the things you can do on how to market your blog more effectively, just apply it and be consistent on what you do.
The Best Way On How To Market Your Blog
Of course, there is one surefire way on how to market your blog, and that’s to regularly write good quality content.
Write about what people in your niche are looking for and that other people will find as the solution to their pain. Creating honest, easy to understand, and memorable content is the best marketing tool there is, and if you can do this on a consistent basis you’ll have the readership you want.
