You write a post, add all the keywords and publish it, how will you feel if no one reads it? If I’m not wrong, you will feel very bad! That’s because it has not reached the people. Some strategies need to be followed so that your post gets a lot of gits. By hits I mean you get readers.
Promoting your blog post is very important and here are 10 Tips on how to promote a blog post.
1) Social Networking
If you get this tip right, almost 60% of your traffic will come from Social Networking. First and foremost don’t forget to post it to your Facebook fan page, then in your Facebook profile and then in your Twitter account. Post it in these sites in such a way that people are attracted and always visit your site for the article.
2) Social Bookmarking
Digg, StumbleUpon, Mixx, Reddit are some of the common Social Bookmarking sites today. These types of sites help you to get a good traffic. Once its in bookmarking sites, you have a good chance of having comments and visits.
3) Commenting With Post link
This is a cool and latest effective method of promoting your blog. If you are taking active part in Forums and comments on other blogs, this works out. Post your Comments and Replies in the websites with your Post link. There are even some spammers. So always post the links with genuine and good comments.
Don’t even forget to mail the link of your post to the Subscribers and Viewers. This can give out massive traffic on the amount of fans you have.
If you have a big email list, then you can send updates of your Blog Posts and Articles through Emails and Newsletters.
6) Email Signatures
Most of us have our blog link URL in the Email Signatures but alternatively, some People add Latest Post links to the Email Signatures. But, this way looks good because people directly get the link of the article than the whole site.
7) Traffic Exchange
Try traffic exchange sites like MGID which give you more than 150% traffic increase for free! Try them out for sure!
This is a costly process and won’t work wonders for each and every post. Paying money, you should only advertise your best post in the site rather than the rest of others. This will get your blog post a good amount of traffic but may prove too costly.
9) Social Messaging
How can we forget this one? This is one of the best and efficient way to get awesome traffic. Update your Chat and IM status with your latest post and people are going to see it. Even, you could message people about your latest posts.
10) Followup Posts
In this way, you could mention about your posts in the next post you write. This is not much effective but can get at least some traffic.
