Here are five amazing ways to increase blog trafficking, engage your readers, and enjoy blogging even more!
Join every social media available! Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Bloglovin, Facebook, Pinterest, everything! Connect with readers and fellow bloggers online! Even just adding your blog link to your social media profiles will get you more clicks!
Engage with other blogs! Comment on posts you love and add your URL to the end of your comment! Just be sure to avoid the comments just promoting your blog! It is very annoying and quite honestly will not make it through the spam filter, or will just be deleted
Host a Giveaway!
Giveaways are great ways to promote your blog and keep your readers active! Simply buy something your readers will be interested in, write a post about it, tell them to share your post(providing you more exposure) and then randomly choose a winner! My suggestion would be to do the contest through Instagram or Twitter because it is much easier to keep track of who shared your post, plus you will reach a wider audience!
Don’t be Shy!
If you know a brand that you think would you would work well with, contact them! Don’t be shy! This is how I have made the majority of my business connections. Chances are, if you don’t contact the brand, they won’t contact you! Work out a deal with them. If you believe they have quality merchandise that you and your readers would appreciate, offer to write a post on the products if they will send them to you. It doesn’t hurt to ask!
Use the Right Tags!
Whether you are promoting your blog on WordPress or Instagram, or any other side for the matter, use appropriate tags! If you are writing about a new makeup product, tag it with things like #makeup, #beauty, etc… Things that will draw in the audience you are looking for! Be sure to avoid tags that aren’t relevant because it will just annoy potential readers.
