Blogging is a great way to share your knowledge about certain things plus it gives you the opportunity to earn from doing the things that you like. Unfortunately, a lot of aspiring bloggers have wasted their precious time by thinking that they could quickly earn by simply publishing their posts. If you want to effectively promote your blog, here are the top five ways to do so.
Tweet your blog posts
Twitter is a very popular social networking site. As a matter of fact, it is mostly used by bloggers and internet marketers. With Twitter, you can promote your latest posts as well as your old posts. Just don’t expect that you’ll be getting a lot of clicks or hits by simply posting a lot of tweets. Make your tweets ‘catchy’ and RT worthy. You also need to increase the number of your followers.
Bookmark your posts to StumbleUpon, Reddit, Digg, etc.
Social bookmarking sites are very useful especially when it comes to promoting your blog as well as promoting your latest blog posts. Sites like StumbleUpon, Reddit and Digg have this large community of users. If your post is interesting enough to be reposted and shared, it would be easier for you to attract a lot of avid readers.
Share your posts to Facebook and Google+
This method is effective especially if you have a lot of people in your network. When you post, try to do it in a way that it won’t be considered as spammy or irrelevant. Do not just put the link of your blog. Instead, write a couple of short sentences that could briefly describe the content of your post or blog.
Promote your blog via YouTube
It is already proven that YouTube has the ability to make a lot of people popular. Given this fact, you can also make use of YouTube to post a couple of interesting videos for people to watch. Whether you upload a 1-minute blog advertisement or a tutorial video that links to one of your contents, it will all be worth it because aside from the views, your videos will also appear on Google Search.
Promote your blog to other blogs
Aside from the above mentioned methods, you could also ask your fellow bloggers to include your blog to their blog roll. If you can make a good deal, you can even convince them to put a simple banner that will link back to your blog. You could also write a couple of guest posts then you include your blog in your author bio. Be creative and think out of the box. If you can manage to do these things, people will eventually go to your blog. Just keep on writing a lot of interesting and useful posts and do not simply write for the sake of increasing your income.
