Promote your blog posts on social media:


This can definitely NOT be ignored! There are millions of social media users on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + etc that may want to read your posts. You can promote your blog posts to these sites, just like other bloggers, and your posts will be seen instantly by hundreds of thousands or even tens if not thousands of people.

It's important to promote your blog posts to targeted people that will be interested. There is no point promoting blog posts about dogs to animal haters is there? Put your blog post on relevant Facebook groups, add and follow people that are into your niche i.e. enter keywords into Twitter search and find people that talk about the niche.

It's recommended that you post your blog post several times. People are now following so many people that they might miss your blog post.

Mailing lists

In my opinion a mailing list is the best way to promote your blog posts and reach out to your followers. While social media can be great, it is not the best way to reach your followers.

So create a mailing list and all your subscribers will each get an individual email alerting them of your new post. Keep your posts engaging so your subscribers want to read them.


Visit blogs about your niche and raise some topics. You can also reply to other forum member queries relating to your post by giving a short answer, then directing them to your post for more information.

Spamming is a major problem in many forums. You will need to sign up and leave a certain number of replies before you can post. It may take some effort but it can drive large amounts of traffic to these forums, which can be large communities.

Promote your blog posts through articles:

Article writing is viewed as outdated and unpopular by many people. It can drive huge traffic to your posts. Millions of people go online for information every day, especially articles that are seen to provide reliable and content rich information.

Google loves articles because they are trusted sources of information. This gives you an advantage in search engine ranking.

Many article sites don't allow for promotion. It's all about content. You can add links to your site however the chances are you will not be able to promote services and products.

Question and answer websites:

Yahoo Answers is a site that allows users to ask questions and receive answers. Same as with the forums, find questions that relate to your blog post and provide a link stating that it will answer their question. These questions can be found by searching Google.
