1-5: Use Your Contacts

Not to be overlooked! This is probably one of the most effective aspects to promote your blog on which you worked hard!

  • Newsletter: Add your latest articles in your monthly newsletter.
  • Groups and Forums: Share through groups and forums on which you are active. Ask People Opinion also.
  • Signature: Add a link to your last article in your email signature.
  • RSS: Your RSS Feed automatically publishes and send an email to persons who are registered.

5-10: The Social Network

  • Facebook: Share your article on your personal profile, on your business page, in groups (if set) and using advertisements.
  • Twitter: Plan a tweet 2-3 times a day at different times of the day (with different titles of course) and that for the next 30 days.
  • Pinterest: Creating a “board” that will contain all your items with attractive images will definitely help in promotion.
  • Linkedin: Share your article on your Linkedin profile, in the groups you participate actively (always trying to start a discussion.) You can even create an ad to promote within the platform.
  • Google Plus: Share articles with your circles and the general public with an appropriate title for your SEO.
