Are you a new blogger, or an existing blogger who is interested in driving traffic to your content? If that’s the case then this blog is for you!
As a long-time blogger, I know how sad and depressing it can be when you’re trying to promote the awesome content that you work so hard on.
That’s why I want to brainstorm with you about my favorite and most powerful blog promotion methods.
Blog Promotional Method # 1 – Email Newsletter Publishing
Probably the single best method to promote your blog, is via your email newsletter.
The beautiful thing about building your email list on your blog, is that your blog readers make the perfect email subscribers!
If someone reads your blog content, and if they think that it’s cool, then of course they might love your email newsletter content too, right?
The even better part, is that your email newsletter content could simply be the same exact content as your blog content, or, you could simply email your newsletter subscribers to let them know that you’ve published a new blog post.
After studying the art and science of blogging and email marketing, I honestly believe that email marketing is the single best method to promote a blog.
Blog Promotional Method # 2 – Start Your Own Blog Tribe
Starting your own blog tribe is another tremendously powerful method to promote your blog.
I personally use a service called Triberr.com, and I’m a huge fan of that service because it helps me to get more eyeballs on my content.
When you create a tribe, you can invite other bloggers to your tribe, and then when you connect your RSS feed to your tribe, the tribe gets updated content from you and all of your tribe-mates.
It then becomes super easy to share your tribe-mate’s content, and they can share yours as well, making blog tribes totally awesome, and one of my favorite blog promotional methods.
Blog Promotional Method # 3 – Turn Your Blog Content Into A Podcast
I honestly believe that all bloggers should also have a Podcast!
If you’re spending time creating awesome content, then it would be a shame not to repurpose that content into audio content as well.
Starting a Podcast is very easy, and super cheap. You can use a host like Libsyn to get Podcast hosting for only $5 per month.
With that Podcast host, you can then promote your Podcast on all of the major directories, such as iTunes and Stitcher.
The hardest part, in my opinion, is creating the blog content in the first place, after which, you can simply record yourself reciting your blog content using Audacity, and then upload that content to your Podcast host.
Blog Promotional Method # 4 – Promote Your Blog Posts On Social Media
Every single time you publish a new blog post, you should then try your best to promote that content!
Try to promote your content on Twitter, on Pinterest, on Facebook, on LinkedIn, on Instagram, and absolutely any other social media account that you have.
That way, you’re always trying your best to spread the word about your content. In my opinion, one of the saddest things in the world is when you create amazing and beautiful content, but then you never spend time promoting it!
You’ve already spent the time creating content, so please spend time promoting it to all of your colleagues, readers, and potential fans.
