Are you promoting your blog?

   

It never fails to amaze me!  Time and time again I see new blogs get started, some with GREAT ideas and some with not so great ideas.  Either way, the first question I always get asked is “How do I promote my Blog and get more followers?”.  The short answer is…you work hard at it and you follow some basic principals.  If you do, you will find your blog will be successful and you and/or your business will start to see and feel the results.  So here it is…  

  

Follow these simple steps to begint he process of promoting your blog.  This is not an all inclusive list by any means.  There are other methods, but if you start here, your chances of success will be substantially increased.  

 12.5 Ways to Promote Your Blog:

  • Promote it on your website. It’s your site and you don’t have a link to your blog on it? How about your friends and family do they have web sites? Do they link to your blog? They should be as well as you should be. If you don’t like your blog enough to link to it…why should anyone else?Include the blog URL in your email signature.
  • Personal emails, business emails, birthday well wishes and retirement announcements…if you send electronic mail, you should ALWAYS include a URL link to your blog in the signature portion.
  •  Include your URL on print. Put your blog address on your business cards, invoices, direct mail campaigns, yellow page advertisements flyer’s and promotional materials.
  •  Leverage Social Media. Always use use relevant “hashtags” (#promotions) when using Twitter. Always post links to your articles on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Submit to directories. This should be a large part of your Link-Building strategy anyway for your main site. Click here if you need help!
  • Post regularly. There is constant debate online as how often to post on your blog. Feel free to join in with your opinion. We recommend no less than once a week. More if you have time. The more content you post…the better!
  •  Submit your Blog URL to Google. Just in case….
  •  Publish an eNewsletter. Easy to do from your weekly posts. Just make each weekly post a separate news article and distribute. This keeps people who forgot to check you blog in the know.
  • Talk about your blog whenever and to whomever you can, but especially when you speak at events as an industry or topic expert.
  • Focus on information your customers can use. If you provide consistent, relevant and compelling content on your blog, your chances of success are really good.
  • Post your blog on social bookmarking sites like Digg, Reddit and Sphinn.
  • Find relevant forums to add your “relevant input and postings to. Please make sure you are posting “on topic”. Otherwise, you will get a reputation for “spamming”. Be sure to add your blog URL to your signature.
