Blog traffic – I can never stop writing about this topic. Why? Every blog needs traffic targeted traffic to grow and make money.
In my previous post, I shared why you should stay away from traffic sources like traffic exchange sites if you want targeted visitors who will convert.
Here’s the thing, there are soooo many blogs today – especially in the network marketing industry. New and seasoned marketers alike realise the importance of having a blog for personal branding, relationship building and marketing. Some bloggers even run multiple blogs for different niches.
So, how do you rise above the noise, get noticed and drive massive amount of traffic to your blog? How do you get people to follow your blog out of the thousands out there?
Well, there are many effective ways that you can implement to make this happen, however it all starts with amazing and unique content.
If you thought the design and cool graphics only will make your blog popular, then think again!
Why is Amazing and Unique Content Important?
It’s so true – when your content is like none other, people will be drawn to you like bees to honey. They will leave you nice comments, share your content everywhere, recommend you to their friends and followers and keep coming back to your blog for more.
So, you need to do your research, come up with helpful findings and solutions and set yourself apart. If you choose to write about things that other people have written about before, put your own stamp, over-deliver and stand out from the crowd. People will always remember you for your high standard posts.
One of the great ways to promote your blog is through social media, but…
How Can You Cut Through the Noise on Social Media?
Almost all top brands are now using social media networks to get more traffic, leads, and conversions. Social media offers great “word of mouth” advertising. You can use this to create a buzz on your blog and get even more traffic and fans.
When people like your content, they will share it on the social media sites and help you to put your name and blog out there.
And when people see that your content is being shared massively, they are likely to click on the buttons and share it too.
If you produce average or below average posts, then it would be fair to expect corresponding shares and retweets.
Also, it’s important to make it easier for your readers to share your content by placing the buttons strategically and testing if they actually work.
Doubtlessly, my blog is getting a lot of exposure on Facebook without me spending hours on end there trying to promote it. And that explains why Facebook is my second largest source of traffic. I’m getting free and targeted traffic, what more could a girl ask for?
Wait, it gets even better! Read on…
I am now branding and promoting my blog by using a signature link when I post comments on Facebook. That’s right – just like using a signature link when posting on forums.
You guessed right, the link goes to my blog. And you know what? People like clicking around and this feature is drawing a lot of attention as it’s still new and absolutely cool.
I have been getting a lot of questions about how I add my branded signature and all that…
So, I have decided to spill the beans here…
See, I use an amazing social media tool to manage my Facebook and Twitter accounts and it’s called MarketMeSuite. Among many cool features, here’s what you can do:
