The Top 5 Free Blog Promotion Tips
I think the question most bloggers want answered is: "How do I get more people to read my blog?". So here they are for your reading pleasure:
The Top 5 free tips how you can promote your blog.
Tip 1: Write Interesting Content
It may seem as if this had nothing to do with promotion. But the content of your blog is the central part of your blog marketing. You need to write the most compelling posts you can think of in order to get people interested in what you have to say. You can really stand out if you have something unique to offer on your blog.
Tip 2: Use the Right Tags
Many people who read blogs find postings that they're interested in via tags. So make sure you include five to ten tags relevant to your post every time.
Tip 3: Swap Links with Other Bloggers
Do you already know other writers from the blogosphere? Great – why not ask them for a link exchange? But be sure to never send spam when doing this – bloggers hate spam as much or even more as non-bloggers.
Tip 4: Write Articles
Do you have a topic you are passionate about? Why not write an article about it and submit it to various article sites? As you may know you can add your link into the "About the Author" box at the end of your article which brings you extra visibility and traffic. You can even repost your article on your blog for extra content – and traffic. Or vice versa: Take one or more blog posts you wrote and make them into an article.
Tip 5: Try Video Marketing
This might not be for everyone but if you've already made a video on YouTube in the past you might try this approach: Make a video in which you sit in front of a camera and talk about a post you made on your blog. Add your link to the info box that shows to the right of your video and mention your blog's URL at the end of the video to reach more viewers – and hopefully prospective readers.
