5 Steps on How to Promote Your Blog
Step 1 blog promotion
Have a daily action plan. Promotions require constant attention. If you want your promotions to work effectively you have to commit to it and perform daily activities to improve your promotion strategies. To be able to do so, you must have a written a plan, something to guide you with your day to day activities, something to keep you on track of the activities and something to base your future evaluations.
Step 2 blog promotion of Content
Striking Content. If you wish to promote your blog to a wider audience, ready yourself with a pillar of striking content. Squeeze out your brain for the best article topic you could come up with. Overwhelm your blog with killer article and impress your audience. All your promotions will be nothing without a great content. Do not end up disappointing your audience; make every content your best.
Step 3 blog promotion on Forums
Promote on forums and comments. Any blogger knows this. And for those who do not believe in the power of forums and comments, here is a proof why you should start believing now. Forums and comment sections of other blogs are the best place to start letting the web that you exist. Blogs and forums offer you an opportunity to become part of the conversation. But don’t be too desperate and be over-promotional by leaving keywords instead of your actual name or any other spammy activities. Be genuine and ethically work your way towards getting noticed.
Step 4 blog promotion via E-mail
Have an email list. From the very moment you start your blog, be sure to seize every email you can get by encouraging your readers to subscribe. Communicate to your subscribers. Send then letters of gratitude, send them freebies and everything you have to offer, once you build a bond with them, it won’t be long ‘till your subscribers themselves will encourage others to check on your blog. Way to go for a promotion, right?
Step 5 blog promotion : spend time with readers
Respond to readers. Show to them how grateful you are for them reading your blog and taking time to splurge in the comment section. Talk to them; let them know that you are worth all their time. Spend time to talk to them, more than promotion; an actual network in the web is healthy for a blogger.
