30 ways to promote your blog posts


As a blogger, you might think that the success of their blog depends on HOW OFTEN you post or add content to your blog. When I first launched this blog I was posting a new blog post almost every day! I thought that the more content I had, the more readers I would attract to my blog.

But over the last few months, I've been experimenting with something new – publish one new blog post per week, but spend a lot more time promoting it! And guess what? It worked! My blog readership went from just a few thousand readers per month to over 20,000, all because I invested some time to promote my blog posts.

The most obvious ways to promote your blog posts is to share them via social media, but there are more ways to get the word.

Here are 30 ways to promote your blog posts

  1. Thank you, for another great blog post. I didn’t know about bookmarking sites so I put my latest blog post there. and I pinned it to my Pinterest board “Help in Business”

  2. I’m always looking for more ways to get my blog out there and inspire more people. Thanks for all the new ideas I got!

  3. Awesome article. As a review blogger I have a list shared by other bloggers to promote on, as well as twitter and facebook, but this opens up a new world to consider.
    I will definately be looking to see who is a right fit.
    Thank you so very much!

  4. Oh thank you so much for making this packed full of amazing information graphic. We all start from somewhere and its helpful to see other ways to tackle your goals. Thanks!

  5. This is great! I use FB and Twitter but now starting to use Pinterest after interacting with your work Andreea!! Great ideas and the graphic is easy to understand πŸ™‚

  6. As a social media mentor and partner, this is great. Exactly what I tell my clients! Nice infographic. Thanks for sharing. Tried to put on my blog, but I got the dreaded 404 error!

  7. I second Outbrain- their content referral is eerily spot on and I have it on good authority that the handsomest engineer of all time works there.

  8. Awesome list. You’ve got to make your blog writing part of the conversations that people are already having if you want them to succeed.

  9. Millions thanks for such details but easy read post! It helps me a lot for my current beginner level for blogging and online store business promotion works.! πŸ™‚

  10. Brilliant tips! I definitely need to focus more attention on writing more and sharing more, and I hadn’t heard of a number of the syndication sites, so I will be doing a bit of surfing tonight. Cheers, Andreea! πŸ™‚

  11. Great infographic. Saw it through SocialBuzzClub and had to share it on my blog today.

  12. This is a very helpful post. I wanted to print it but I cannot seem to do so without the like, tweet column bar and in a nice format.
    Any suggestions?

  13. Thank you very much for this information. I promote on the social media sites but you have given me several more avenues to check out.

  14. Great advice and provided me with some ideas I didn’t know about. Next step is to follow this chart and measure the results. Thank you!

  15. Which site is more appropriate demographically for a business-related blog, Pinterest or G+?

    1. Marla, I would say Pinterest because people spend an average of over 400 minutes on Pinterest per month and only 3 minutes per month on Google+!

  16. Quote: “Marla, I would say Pinterest because people spend an average of over 400 minutes on Pinterest per month and only 3 minutes per month on Google+!”

    Would you say Google+ is not that big a deal? I find it so difficult to get followers (circle friends) and end up posting to myself πŸ™‚

  17. Marla – wonderful ideas. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and insights!
    Stay blessed,
    Bob

  18. Wow, what a great lesson in how to promote your website. I don’t do any of this, then I wonder why no one visits my great posts… Thank you so much! I’d better get cracking…

  19. I have read many blogs about same topic but this is very perfect .
    give me some tips to promote my free classifieds ads .

  20. Clever, simple, understandable : everything I needed to keep working on promoting my blog ! Thank you.
    Will need to apply your advices to the French market now πŸ™‚

  21. This is really helpful and a lovely graphic that appeals to me. I’d love to print it for my wall, but it comes out too small!

    thank you

  22. Thanks for this great, easy-to-follow post! Simple yet elegant. While reading this, I’ve already posted about my blog on Pinterest, Facebook, and Digg. Hopefully doing all of this will give my blog the push that I’ve been waiting for. Oh yeah, and check out my super awesome food and travel blog

  23. Thanks for this great post and good advices. This is really helpful and very easy and fun to read too. Definitely a golden source for new bloggers. With your permission, I will post this on my own blog too. Cheers.

  24. Great post! There are some things I will definitely put into practice for my beauty blog. More importantly I look forward to sharing this with the business coaching workshop that I teach. I share some of this information but your graphics and text are so clear, they will really “get it”. I will share the link when I post it!

  25. Thanks for the great tips in a lovely format!

    Has anyone tried the “posting the same post on twitter 2-3” times a day? that sort of scares me–like it will annoy people, but this is not the first time I’ve seen this advice, so I’m not debating it–but would love to hear if anyone’s made this change and saw what happened.

    thanks!

    1. I’ve done it and if you spread it out so that it’s one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening it’s ok. And I often change the tweet so that it’s not the same tweet three times per day, but it’s going to the same link.

  26. Thank you for this fantastic, thought-provoking post – and the infographic itself is great πŸ™‚

  27. Thanks for this great info….have bookmarked your page. I’ve been blogging for a few years….but decided to make an online journal beginning today…Christmas Eve. I have tweeted it on twitter and shared it to my facebook page and had 60 views already….so I’m looking for new ways to promote….which is how I found your page. Off to Pinterest now….thanks for the idea πŸ™‚

  28. I’ve been searching for ways to drive more traffic to my blog. Thank you for your 30 ways. Have to do a lot more with your list.

  29. You’ve certainly given us some homework to do.

    It really makes me realize how passive my blogging has been. Inspired to get more actively involved in the marketing aspect πŸ™‚

    Thanks.

  30. This post is just what I needed right now. Been goal setting and one of them is to promote my blogs more.
    You have an awesome list here will need to bookmake your page so I can refer back when needed.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Cheers
    Bryan

  31. Great info! I usually submit my articles to directories, I rewrite my articles myself or use an article spinner. This helps create additional backlinks to my site that can be a source of traffic. If you do this make sure you don’t post the same article word for word, it could be considered duplicate content and Google will discount it. So you want to make sure to use a spinner. Thanks for the post.

  32. I’m pinning this! Thank you so much for a great post- this year I have decided to blog at a frequency of once per week, but I had no idea how to drive more visitors and comments to my blog. You’ve given me some work to do. πŸ™‚

  33. Wow..so much info to take in..Im not familiar with Reddit or Digg. I tried to look at them but found it overwhelming. I am going to have to really find time to see what these sites are about. Pinterest makes things so easy..I got confused while looking at both reddit and digg???

  34. This is the kind of checklist I’ve been looking for! Thank you so much for being so concise. I shared it on FB with my entrepeneur group and will also implement on my blog. (Also, thank you for the opportunity to mention my own blog πŸ™‚

  35. I’m really impressed with that info-graphics, it really explains it all. Thanks for this useful post.

  36. Thanks for a great post. Wasn’t familiar with the syndicated websites that you mentioned. Will certainly give ’em a try! Promotion is definitely the hardest part of blogging πŸ˜‰

  37. What a fantastic post – thank you! I will be adding this to my infograpics board on Pinterest – invaluable and I will be sharing this fantastically good practice!

  38. This is one of the best posts I’ve read on growing a blog – thanks so much for posting this –
    Now following you!
    Hugs,
    Suzan

  39. Thank You very much for such great information. I’ve just launched my blog and you have collated all the research I needed to do into one infographic. I’ve started implementing your suggestions already.

    Olivia

  40. Smart, smart, smart!!! From the tips themselves, to organizing information in appealing digestible bites, to offering the HTML code for the infographic and encouraging your readers to spread the word! Really awesome! Lesson in and of itself πŸ™‚

  41. Some very good advice here, but three things jumped out at me…StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit ALL frown upon submitting your own content. They also have systems in place to detect when people are “gaming” their site. You don’t want to be banned (as a user) or have your site blacklisted from any of these sites, because it will cost you significant traffic and exposure.

  42. Thank you immensely for this summary! I am fairly new to the world of blogging, and this piece has summed things up clearly.

  43. This is probably THE most helpful article I have read on promoting blogs. Thank you so very much- I can implement several of these tips today!

  44. This is a super helpful post, thank you! I’ve been able to figure out a couple of the recommendations and have set aside more time to figure out the rest, I’m determined!

  45. Hi Gals,
    What a great post! Since I’m new to blogging (I’m an actor/writer/producer) and I blog about creating your own web series, this post came just in time…will definitely retweet to my 146k followers to at @datingwebseries.
    Thank you!

  46. Thanks for this information! I really appreciate you charing how your blog became successful. I will try to implement your techniques to get more traffic on my blog!

  47. Thank you so much for this great post! We are new (VERY new) to this community and love reading posts like this from experienced bloggers.

    Now that I have found you I will be checking in often!

    Thanks again πŸ™‚

  48. Good ideas, thanks! I hope some will help me get more traffic to my funny baby videos site.

  49. Great post..I always believe that social networking sites are excellent for promoting blogs and bringing in more traffic. Content matters and so do promotion for any blog to find its way to success. Thanks for the tips !!

  50. Hello! I’m young and new to the world of blogging and I’ve just discovered these tips. I’m starting by visiting IFTTT. These are useful and excellent! Thank you so much and more power to you. πŸ™‚

  51. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It was a refreshing and inspiring change to find some advice that was clear, concise, relevant and will actually make a difference.

    So I shared πŸ™‚

  52. Thank you so much for this article. This was quite helpful for a person like myself who is new to blogging. Great job!

  53. Kudos to you! This is a great infographic, packed with solid content. I’ll be posting this to my marketing blog for businesses. Thanks! Keep up the great work.

  54. Those are some great tips. Social media has become an important marketing tool with regards to blogs and websites in general. The fundamentals of social media need to be understood in order to succeed!!

  55. What A Post! πŸ™‚
    And That Even In The Form Of A Graphical Picture.
    Awesome Work πŸ˜‰
    Thank You For The Strategies!

  56. Thank You! These are fantastic – I’ll be using these strategies on my mommy blog πŸ™‚

  57. This is what I needed. I am still a bit insecure when it comes to the promotion of my blog-baby, never know when it is too much to add a link to my website or not.. Thank’s, great site! Juli

  58. I actually have done some of these on my own, I was surprised. Thank you for the information.
    I posted 30 ways to promote your Blog posts on my blog

  59. Great tips! I will definitely put them to use! Check out my blog abeautypiece.blogspot.com and let me know what you think.

  60. Great to hear, Evin! Thanks so much for making the time to read it.

  61. Just wanted to say THANK YOU! I am a brand new blogger (all of 4 posts!) and this has already helped me tremendously.

    One of the regular posts I’m planning on doing is called “Chronicles of a New Blogger” – where I’m documenting all the activities I’m doing to try to be successful. I’m definitely going to link to this article in my next (second!) post.

    Thank you again for such helpful, specific information. πŸ™‚

  62. Awesome infographic dear and more great is you have allowed everyone to share on their blogs. I have also scheduled it on my blog and will inform you after live. Please help me in promoting.
    Regards

  63. Great Information, Love the infographic! I know what I’ll be doing this weekend!

  64. Great tips there!!! I must say the biggest problem is finding time to actually join all these different sites – I already have a notebook with 100 passwords for different websites I’ve joined to promote my blog. Sadly there is only so much we can do with the time we have!! So I find it’s best to just pick 5 or 6 of these and work hard at them. Jonny

  65. Thanks just started my blog on my homeless situation and I am looking to get some followers for encouragement these techniques will really come in handy.

    Thanks LaunchGrowJoy!

  66. This post has given me the confidence to put my blog out there a lot more. Thanks so much for all the useful advice!

  67. I simply loved the idea of pinning my blog posts! I have a really active pinterest account and it has never dawned on me using it for promoting my blog! Thank you <3

  68. Hi Andreea,

    Thank you so much for the cheat sheet! That really is an awesome infographic! I too have borrowed it for my website. I’m sure my readers will appreciate it! Both of them! I intend to use it as well. Just what the doctor ordered! Thanks again.

    Well it’s off to pinterest!

    Donald

  69. Awesome tips. I checked this out a week ago and incorporated a few already. My readership is starting to climb. Fantastic advice.

  70. Thanks for the great list! I would also like to add Blog Carnival to it. You might not get a lot of traffic from there, but you will get some great links and exposure among bloggers in your niche πŸ™‚

  71. Thank you SO MUCH Andreea!
    I wasn’t really taking advantage of the bookmarking sites and have already seen a huge jump in traffic from reddit alone! I would absolutely LOVE a social media mention from you. Really appreciate your immediately helpful advice!

  72. Andrea – this is a fabulous post – incredibly useful and laid out in such an easy-to-read, user-friendly way.

    I was just about to email you to THANK YOU for the banner I currently have on your site…suddenly I noticed a surge in website traffic. When I did some investigating, I saw it was coming from you!

    Thanks again!

  73. Hi Andreea
    Great post putting it all together in one spot that I can refer to again and again. So happy I stumbled on your blog. It’s loaded with great information. I shared the infographic with my readers today.

  74. Hi Andrea-
    Thank you for this post. I’m an emerging artist and just started a blog to document my journey and promote my artwork. At this moment, I only have one post so far, but I’m looking forward to using these tips as I go along!

  75. Hey Andrea!
    Great tips, thanks so much for sharing… Just a piece of feedback: it’s a bit hard to read with such small type! Any way to get the infographic larger so it is easier to read?? I’ll be sharing for sure!

    Thanks!
    Jen

  76. Very impressive and informative infographic Andreea πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

  77. Thanks for the tips! I’m getting back into blogging after having a baby & I’m hoping this will help!

  78. Thanks for the great tips! I already pin my posts on Pinterest but I put them on the appropriate board (food, crafts, etc) but I’m curious what the advantage of having your own blog post board as you say and putting every thing on there instead of the category boards? Thanks! Jill@ MamaGing.com

  79. I plan to use this infographic. Definitely will help put a plan and structure into marketing my blogs.

  80. Excellent! This is the simplest, most user-friendly explanation of blog post promotion tools that I’ve ever found. Bravo!

  81. Hello Andreea

    A good article, and thanks for sharing the infographics. I have used it in this post (and with a link back to here):

  82. Fantastic infographic! Thanks for allowing us to share it and your domain name at the bottom is what returned me to your site!

  83. I was wondering if it was completely safe to submit the blog to Amazon publishing. Can you please throw some light?

    -Hiral

  84. If there are any Mommy/Mummy bloggers who do crafts with their kids, they could do an article for MyKidCraft . You can leave a link to your blog to help encourage traffic through to your site. We have around 26,000 readers a month and over 3,000 subscribers.

  85. This infographic was really helpful! I posted it to my blog and social media sites. Thanks for sharing!

  86. Great infographic and really useful tips. I’ve just set up a board on Pinterest for all my posts – why didn’t I think of this before! As you suggested I’ve also published it on my website

    thanks

  87. Great tips, thank you. I have a quilting interest board, but as a quilting blogger never thought of having a quilting blog posts board. Great suggestion. Plus, since I follow other quilters’ blogsI can pin those and it won’t be only my content. Cross-promotion and networking is a wonderful thing!

    1. Marsha, sorry about that! Have you tried clicking on it? That will make it larger for you to see!

  88. Hi, thankyou for sharing this! I am currently trying to advertise and promote my blog with no avail.

  89. Great post and infographic, Andreea! I have the same problem an earlier commenter has. I’d like to make a desktop background out of this but the print is too small. Is there any chance you have the original PSD file and that it is much bigger? I’d really LOVE to have this!

    Thank you,

    Jeff

  90. Thank you for all these tips! I didn’t realize marketing my site would make such a difference, but I understand the concept now! The infographic is great too. I’m more of a visual learner.

  91. Great tips and info. Thanks so much I will be using some of these to promote my entertainment site.

  92. Great advice! It looks like you have to pay for some of the bookmarking sites. I will start with the free ones first. Thanks!

  93. thanks so much for this advice! some of the best that i’ve read. going to give the tips a go for my new blog yay! xx
