10 Amazing Blog Site Advertising Tips
You now have 800 subscribers and want to drive growth? Here are my top 10 tips to help grow an amazing community.
1. Good Content is Worth Your While
Every blogger wants to make sure their blog posts reach and connect with their audience right. I heard in a recent Les Brown, for those who may not know him a motivational coach that he never makes an assumption about his audience. He always check with they need and then gives it to them.
2. Invest in Paid Search
Don’t get me wrong, organic is good. I liken it to raising a baby and when done right, its well worth the effort. However, even though paid advertising is a numbers game, by playing the game you will win. Invest in your business like you invest in you.
3. Social Bookmarking
Social bookmarking helps communities grow by promoting your blog and content through social media. Honestly once the content is prepared it really is a winner (I like that word)
4. Guest Blogs
Now this one is all about networking online, there are some great bloggers out her, and sticking together only means growing an eco-system that eventually will help anyone to be a brilliant entrepreneur. Seriously, building an authority website (Google calls it Domain Authority) will have your pages in front of the people you care about.
5. Discussion Boards
Out of these 10, not all approaches may work for you. However, with inforpreneurs, helpful needs to be your second name. Make use of discussion boards and forums, this always attracts visitors to your blog. It creates value and once again both parties gain authority.
6. Interlinking Your Blog
Interlink your blog with other blogs written on your pages. This is a great way of informing your readers that you are well versed in the topic.
As well as online networking, make time to network with colleagues in your niche. I like Meet Up, its brilliant and a great way to meet like minded. It pays off to help one another both offline and online. This is especially true for micro businesses.
We all love stories they connect the disruptions that happen when ‘fear kicks in’ and brings a positive reality. If you are like me, I believe in what I do 100%, mainly because I have grafted for what is true for me. I was not born with a silver spoon so connecting with stories has helped me grow my beliefs with what is attainable.
9. In-depth Reviews
This is an interesting one and works well. Using a product, service and giving an in-depth review. Amazon.com are well known for their reviews thus promoting the online buying ethics. People buy from people.
10. Irresistible Titles
Create irresistible titles, be it catchy, emotional, strong and short. People are curious. According to research from Hubspot, titles with 8-12 words get the most shares. Run your titles past others. What do they think?
