Get Your Content Noticed and Get More Traffic
In order to get noticed more and get more visitors to your website/ blog, you need to be active and get your content out there. There are many aspects to blogging and getting traffic, but in this post, I’m not talking about the technical parts such as SEO, backlinks etc.., only the easy basic aspects.
In being active, you need to be consistent. Whether you publish a post every day, or once a week, the key is to be consistent. Continually post and share valuable content that will help people and inform them.
Share, share, share –
So, you have your post written and published to your blog. Now what?! You now need to share your post and get it in front of other people’s eyes.
If you already have a list of readers/ customers, then you can send them the post in your email marketing and autoresponder. In addition, you can share your posts on any and all social media sites that you frequent and connect with people on. There are many social media platforms out there, the big 5 being: Facebook, Google +, Twitter, Linkedin and Pinterest.
The great things about social media are that they are:
- Free to use
- Easy to use – only takes minutes to complete
- Can be fun
- There are millions of people using social media
You simply post (share) your link on your pages of the social media platforms. Just be sure to not spam other people by posting your link on their pages. Make sure to communicate and interact with others.
Another great way to increase traffic to your blog is through a blog challenge or blogging group. I think it’s a great idea to participate in a blog challenge. At least, I have found success through these challenges. There are many of them out there, both free, and paid. Here are a couple that I have am currently doing:
Some of the benefits of a blog challenge are:
- Learning – bloggers are from different industries & niches
- Gain experience –
- Get more traffic/ higher ranking (which could lead to more optins/ sign ups/ sales
- Community of people sharing your content, leaving you comments, giving feedback, etc.
- Place to get/ share ideas
My blog has grown dramatically and my blogging ability has improved just by using social media and participating in blog challenges.
These ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. I could have gone more into detail, but social media and blogging can be very complex creatures. I just wanted to give you some of the basics. More information to come in future posts!
