These are the exact steps which I follow to promote my content.
These are the same strategies I use to get more comments.
These steps can help you to get more exposure for your blog too!
All you have to do is implement these 4 simple steps(including a bonus tip for WordPress users).
Promote on social media sites
Immediately after publishing your content, promote it on facebook, twitter, Google+ etc.
The key point here to consider is: Concentrate more on the best traffic source(for me facebook is the biggest traffic source as of now).
You may get more twitter traffic to your blog.
Determine that where you are getting more traffic and give that traffic source the highest priority(spend more time, promote on similar groups etc).
Time it takes: 2 mins.
Submit URL’s on forums
Signup for the free forums like bizsugar, myseocommunity etc. And share your latest blog posts to get more exposure.
Few uses of using forum marketing:
- You can help others
- More exposure to your blog
- You can better understand your niche
- You can get blog post ideas
- They are free(above sites)
Time it takes: 1 min
Email targeted bloggers
I used the word ‘targeted’.
You don’ t need to email all the bloggers or readers.
Focus only on few bloggers whom do you think are the best fit to your blog. Tell them that you have written an article on so and so topic and you will be glad to see their comments on it.
Time: Max. 5 mins.
Comment on other blogs in your niche:
The best tip on blog commenting is this…
Blogosphere is running on the concept of win/win approach, don’t ask others to do a favor unless you do something for them!
Leave insightful comments on other people blogs first, then ask them the favor in a humble way. They may visit your blog to leave few comments.
Don’t forget to comment on CommentLuv enabled blogs.
Here my friend Zeeshan created a great source on CommentLuv enabled blogs. Hope it may help you.
Time it takes to comment: It depends on your typing & reading speed ;)
Don’t miss out this tip.
Do You know about ping services?
Ping services automatically notifies to search engines and other blog directories when you update your blog(more ping services = more traffic).
If you’re not using ping services yet, use them now. Here I made it simple for you(takes just 2 to 3 seconds!).
Go to WordPress Dashboard >> Settings >> Writing
Scroll down and copy the following “ping list” in Update services.
