It has been a while since I have given tips and advice to my readers. This post is from a few months ago, but since I get new readers every day I would like to share it one more time.
Every one of us is blogging for a reason and we want others to read our blogs. Without readers, the motivation to blog might fade but it can be hard to be seen in a world where there are so many good blogs and not everyone knows how to promote their blog. Propaganda and marketing today is very costly and for a private blogger, it is almost impossible to be able to use these sources of promoting a blog. I am always looking for ways to make my blog more visible and I have learned a lot in the time that I have been blogging here at WordPress which I want to share with my readers.
1.) Daily prompt
According to my research, there are around 74 million users on WordPress. Can you believe it??? So my advice for new bloggers is to write a daily prompt so that your blog will be visible for all WordPress users around the world.
2.) Social media
We have so many different social medias that can really help you to promote your blog for free. On WordPress, there is a button that will share your blog automatically when your accounts are connected to WordPress and in that way your friends and family will know that you have a blog and maybe they will share your blog.
On WordPress, there is also a weekly photo challenge where you can just upload a photo and tag your photo on this challenge. However, it should be according to the weekly topic. In that way, you will be visible and there are 100 of bloggers that you can visit and get new connections.
4.) Visit new bloggers
The best promotion is to visit other bloggers first. Leave a nice comment but always be sincere. If you don’t have anything to say you can always like their post and they will see that you have visited them. However, a comment is always more efficiently since other readers will see your comment as well.
5.) Community pool
I believe that every WordPress users know about the WordPress community pool. It was the first place that I came across when I started my blog. The comment section opens every Monday so that people can share their new posts and get some feedback from other bloggers and get connected as well.
These are some of my best advice for getting more readers and traffic on your blog. There are probably some more but I will share them another day. If find this post informative and useful for your readers please feel free to share this post.
Do you agree or do you disagree with my advice?
Have a wonderful day!
