Today we have the lovely Melisa Marzett providing us with some very useful advice!
The first thing you should do in order to get your blog promoted is to make it recognizable, which is why it is important to introduce yourself to every visitor. In the case of a personal blog, put your photo, name and a brief description of what you do on your home page. Remind readers as often as you can that you are the author.
Taking it seriously is the key to the successful development of your blog. You should have a content plan with a list of topics and plans for publications, at least, a month ahead. You should follow the plan without question. Diverse articles are to be written like reviews, tips, news, interviews with famous people, infographics. In this case, only the promotion of a blog by articles is effective. Also, choose a style of writing that is your own, a distinguishing style of writing to present you only. Do not be afraid to experiment and know your target audience.
Search engine optimization is required. Not of your blog only but also of the whole website. Keep in mind the following important things:
- To organize a site indexing and to make faster if necessary.
- Duplication of content and duplicates of the site’s pages.
- Validation of the site.
- “Breadcrumbs” and so on.
Just like the case of all other websites, increasing of link masses are needed for a blog promotion on the net.
Talking to a reader.
Promoting a blog with articles shows better results in case an author is able to talk to his readers. Apart from that, to fit in the content in the fullest sense of the word with all the harmony, what you write should call for action, ask questions, comment and not to forget to give answers.
In addition, you should publish on a regular basis, promote through social networks, distribute, make acquaintances with popular bloggers, give and take video lessons, make visiting cards with your blog’s address, conduct training, which will all help in making your blog successful.
Apart from the websites where search advertising and SEO are used, a blog may become popular through conducting training on something you are good at or on what your blog is dedicated to. You may have your visiting cards in a drawer and start visiting community mobilization events (seminars, conferences) and give them away there. Using different types of video lessons, you may organize promotion on a YouTube channel dedicated to your blog.
New acquaintances are always a good thing. Blog promotion is not an exception. You leave comments on their publications asking them to do the same when it comes to comments on your articles. Suggest your readers in a non-intrusive way to subscribe in order not to miss new posts. Doing so, you will make sure you are not forgotten, make the amount of visits higher, which will make the promotion of your blog more effective. It is needless to describe the process of your blog promotion via social media but for those who do not know all the peculiarities, create sites dedicated to your blog and be active. It goes without saying that posting new stuff regularly is going to make it to where your readers will always be interested in what is going on the pages of your blog.
