Tips For Promoting Your Blog!

You spend the time creating blog posts and no one comes to visit. 

Here are our top five tips for promoting your blog.

  1. Connect your blog to post directly onto your Facebook Fan Page by using RSS Graffiti. Be careful not to overload your readers.
  2. Be sure to add share widgets to your blog so it's very easy for a reader to share your post on all the popular social media websites.
  3. Purchase business cards. We sponsor live chats, book reviews and author interviews. Anytime a lucky reader wins a prize we add a business card to their package as a reminder on how to stay connected to us.
  4. Add a newsletter sign up form to your blog. Sign up with Aweber, Mailchimp or Constant Contact and keep your audience connected.
  5. Tweet! send your new blog posts out as tweets, interact on Twitter, engage your audience, retweet their tweets and learn how to use hashtags. Make the most of social media.

Thanks for the tips on promoting your blog. Where does a person find a list of hashtags and their meanings? Maybe you could do a post on that for us newbies.

Great ideas!

My readership has increased when I connected my blog to Facebook and Twitter (at least for posts).

I have to look into RSS Graffiti, though. Interesting.

Rss makes it really simple to have your blog posts added to Facebook. Let us know what you think.
