You’re blogging. Good for you. It’s a real achievement to build a blog, and over time, you’ll realize that your blog has made all the difference in your writing. I started blogging without knowing what the heck I was doing 16 years ago. I can’t imagine my life without it. I’m grateful every day for my blogs.
Enough about me. You’ve got a blog, so you need blog traffic. Consider this. Blog traffic is easy, but it’s far from the most important thing. Whatever amount of traffic you have, you need to be sure that that traffic — even if it’s only ten readers a day — is helping you to achieve your goals.
Here’s how to get traffic which does what you want it to do… realize that no blog is an island.
Promote your content, and reach out to others
To get traffic, you need to promote your content. The easiest way to do that is via social media.
These four social media networks work for promotion
Next, you need to reach out to others.
Easy ways to reach out
- Comment on blogs
- Syndicate your content
- Mention others in your blog posts
- Guest blog
Blog traffic in ten minutes a day
There’s only one secret to blog promotion: consistency.
When you start promoting, you’re starting from zero. It’s hard to get traction. Here’s a common pitfall: bloggers have great expectations too early. You will get traffic, but it happens over time.
It’s not your fault. We’re all in the same boat. We all want instant results. I see this with my copywriting clients all the time. They start a Facebook page, and instantly want to see results in their bottom line. It could happen, but chances are that it won’t. Consistency wins.
Can you spare ten minutes a day, or every couple of days? That’s all it takes.
