When looking to increase readers, blog promotion is the way to go.
When writing a blog, you can’t expect your readers to simply find you. Instead, you have to put your marketing cap on and seek potential readers yourself. For some, this may be hard to do. But since you are taking the time to write a blog, a little extra effort in blog promotion is required to get more readers to your website.
When it comes to blog promotion, you are essentially selling yourself. One way to do that is to not only write articles for your own blog, but to also write articles to be posted across the Internet. This is a great way to ensure exposure, especially when your articles include back links. These back links help search engines index your articles correctly and will increase your page rank. You should include back links in your author bio and at the end of your article by saying something like “Other articles by this author include…” But it is also a good idea to link directly back to your blog within the article text. You will just need to make it look like it is seamless with the flow of the article.
When writing for others, you will want to target topics that aren’t as personal as what you cover on your blog. These should be related to whatever website your article will be posted on, whether it’s a guest blog post or a submission to something more formal. You still want to write in your same style (it is still you after all), but you may want to try to appeal to a wider audience in order to get people to visit your website.
When it comes to marketing your blog, it is a good idea to write a short paragraph as a promotional tool you can submit to a blog directory. You want to provide your potential readers with some insight as to what to expect. You should include a summary of your blog and the sort of topics you cover. Keep it short, about 2 to 5 sentences should be enough, to get the point of the content across.
Marketing your blog via the web takes a lot of creativity, just like your blog itself. Every post on your blog could also be seen as marketing. If you write some bad blog posts, you might lose some readers. Remember that the idea isn’t only to write quality content in each of your posts, you also want to write very compelling content, to keep readers coming back. If you cannot hold the interest of your readership, then you may end seeing a decrease in your website’s visitors and views.
Not only should you have a way for readers to subscribe to your blog, but you may also offer people an incentive, such as access to some additional content or perhaps some sort of giveaway. People like freebies, and a little effort at a small cost to provide something for them could go a long way to increasing the number of loyal readers of your blog.
