Got Blog Promotion Strategies?

Blog Promotion StrategiesUsing blog promotion strategies helps with the biggest challenges you face as a blogger.

I’m sure you’re quite aware of those challenges as part of your blog promotion strategies:

  1. Just getting visitors to come to your blog. 
  2. Making it easy for them want to stay and read your information.
  3. Keeping their interest enough for them enough to make a comment.
  4. Then, enticing them to come back.

Whewee!

Every post that you hit the publish button for is your opportunity to use your blog promotion strategies.

Because you know that the best content in the world will never be enough to get you noticed.

Yet, obviously, it’s not that easy – otherwise every blog out there out would be #1 in their niche.

That’s why you’ll always need to be active using your blog promotion strategies, routinely.

So, what about those blog promotion strategies…

#1 Just getting visitors to come to your blog. Blog Traffic.

I teach Social Media Marketing around your blog hub…so ~

==> I believe that you need to set up your Social Media efforts with one or two platforms where your audience hangs out.

  • Once you have your routine set on your favorite two sites, then add your presence on each of the major Social Media platforms.

You’ll be engaging and sharing – building interest and credibility.

#2 Making it easy for them want to stay and read your information.

Most of your blog visitors will scan your posts. If your post is difficult to scan, they probably won’t read your post word for word.

What will you do?

  • Have short paragraphs.
  • Use sub-headers
  • Bold and/or colored text to stand out – not overdone.
  • Bullet points and/or numbered lists within your post.

Try this and take a look at:

#3 Keeping their interest enough for them enough to make a comment.

Create your content topic with the intention that your writing isn’t relevant ONLY to you.

  • Ask for their thoughts.
  • Offer a comment contest. If you like offering contests.
  • Join Blogging Groups. 

#4 Then, enticing them to come back.

Get personal with email.

==> Just in case you don’t know this – nothing is more valuable to you as a blogger than your email list.

Your subscribers are your visitors that want more of you and took your offer to sign up for your email list to get more of what you have to offer them.

This is your built in list of visitors that you want to grow continuously. Ask more about how to build your list at donnalward.com/buildyourlist

Your blog promotion strategies can be time consuming and not always easy…

But, it’s certainly not rocket science!

So, if you’re not getting the responses you want from your blogging, then you need to have your own blog promotion strategies that work best for you. And, use them routinely.

    I never worried that much about my email list. I always figured that if they were getting my stuff in their inboxes, they wouldn’t have much of a reason to visit my site.

    Wonderful information, Donna! I think the bullet points are things I don’t often use. And I always feel my call to action is weak, and maybe that’s why I don’t get the traffic I would like. I am also now putting keywords in my title. I have always thought that killed my creativity but I’m experimenting to see if it brings more of my targeted reader to my blog.
    Thanks so much!

        hmmm…The viral part intrigues me – I’ll have to write about that – and even if someone has had a blog a long while, well…it still takes effort and knowledge to get it right. Thank you for your note Chrystal 🙂

    I’m going to sound absolutely clueless given that I have been blogging since 2010, but…. how do you get emails from people to build your list? I would love to know.

    Contests are a great way to grab extra commenters. I use blog groups a lot too.

    I need to put more effort into my newsletter and getting one out. Cost is more of a factor than anything when it comes to sending out a newsletter.

    I never even thought about my email list. I have just started an email subscription on my blog. I hadn’t had one until now. I can’t believe I would forget something so important but I did!

    It’s not always easy to get traffic increasing in blogs. This is especially true when you don’t frequently publish new posts to catch everyone’s excitement and attention. It’s really important to keep them interested and engaged.

    I have an email list for my food site, but I have no idea what to really write about and send to them. I have been meaning to get this figured out, but keep dragging my feet.

    Great advice! I’ve been focusing on social media and never really paid much attention to my subscriber list. I need to work on that one.

    This is all great information. I’m new to blogging, so I’m still struggling with all these challenges. I’m finding that my BSBA in marketing (that I got many years ago) does me little to no good in this environment.

      Thank you Cherri – I know, right? My BM Degree gave me a lot, and my Bachelor of Science in Information Systems helped me dig in for more – but blogging helps pull some of what we learned into it – the real Internet world is the same yet so different than traditional marketing. So glad you commented 🙂

      Rachee – so glad you brought up what so many bloggers think – that they don’t have anything to sell – ‘just yet’ – but for now you can be building those email relationships for when you are ready. Thank you for your note!
