Follow these traffic tips, and you will be well on your way to a successful blog with a large audience.
Take a Course
There is a ton of information out there for blog newbies. Take a look at all of your options, and decide which type of blog course speaks most to you. Choose a step-by-step guide based on your goals, targets, and content.
Some of these courses are free and others cost a fee. Read reviews by bloggers that are familiar with the course and have taken them, and make a decision on which one your choose based on that.
Start a Facebook Group
A Facebook group is a great way to get your audience melded together as a community. You can reach your audience directly, and create a personal relationship. You can interact in the comments with your fans, and link to any new blog posts.
You can adjust your privacy settings so that your group is public, or if you prefer a more “members only” exclusivity feel, opt for more privacy.
Make sure that you stay consistent with your Facebook group and recruit new members regularly. Consider doing a giveaway, and anyone who joins your group is automatically entered in the contest. Giveaways are a great way to pull in new people and getting them to bring in new people with them,
Comment on Other Blogs
Think of commenting on other blogs as a free billboard to link to yourself. This doesn’t mean you should write something obnoxiously blatantly advertising your blog out of context. Sometimes it can simply be a response to the blogger’s post, a compliment, and an invitation to check your content out too.
The link to your blog has high visibility if it’s a popular blog, and has the potential to bring in a considerable amount of new readers.
Pay For Advertising
Paying for an advertising campaign on Facebook is a great tactic which can yield fantastic results. The campaigns can be as short as a day, and as low as $5. Give it a try and see what kind of results you are getting in your stats. You may find that it’s worth a long term investment.
