Hey there dear community!
I'm a new blogger (I have an investment platform), and my audience is quite low in amount. I have around 50 people at the moment, most of whom are my friends.
How do you advertise the blog properly to increase followers?
First and foremost thing, make sure you have a lot of content and that should be relevant. Most of the blogs out there in the internet have no content, or irrelevant content. Make sure to use a mix of text, images and videos where ever necessary as it looks attractive and try to promote your blog on Facebook, Whatsapp and twitter. Google plus is also a good platform to promote your blog. Try to use keywords which most people would search for on google. Respond to user's comments and keep your blog upto date. Make sure to add content whenever possible. Happy blogging!

I agree with you, the content and constant promotion is number one factor to increase audience.
Answering to comments is what keeps the increase in numbers of my blog's audience. Running instructional DIY blogs could really be tiring as there are a lot of questions for every post. But answering each one of them is helping in spreading the word about the blog and they keep coming back.
Interacting with your guest or visitor is a good factor to consider to add a number of audience in a blog. People like to learn and share their ideas. It gives meaning and life to a certain blog. Even, if it's tiring but the result is remarkable. You are good with what you are doing. Keep it up.
Thanks, that meant something. It is very true, aside form very a few, I have learned that there is this pool of creativity within each of us, and there is always a longing to create. Sharing ideas sparks a lot of inspiration and it really is very satisfactory when my audience shares their version of the craft. It just makes me proud.
Yes, relevant content is very important but when I click on a blog I want it to be INTERESTING. Don't write about something boring, also make a good headline that doesn't reveals the content but rather intrigues you to click on the add and read the blog.
Valuable Information, will also keep that in mind because I'm planning too on being a blogger, I agree on everything you said and if I can add something then that's being unique, I feel like being unique draws peoples attention to it and that's what I'm aiming for when I start my journey as a blogger.
You can increase your audience in your site by trying to share your link on your social media sites. Through that, you can direct the traffic in your site. Social media sites are great platforms for advertising. You can also search on internet on different ways to use social media in advertisement.
The first and the most important step in blogging is right at the start. It's choosing your niche. This is because what you blog about will definitely determine how people run to your blog. My advice to you is to write engaging content. Study social media activities. What are those posts that get the most views doing that you are not? Learn from them. You should also share your stuff on as many social media platforms as possible. The key above all else is to write stuff people will want to read.
My best bet for marketing a blog is the social media particularly Facebook. You probably have an account in Facebook, right? Find a Facebook Group that is related to your niche. Join that group and express your passion by posting regularly. After a week of doing that the other members of the Facebook Group will see you as an established member. That is the time to post your marketing spiel about your blog.
This one is a great suggestion. Facebook at the moment is the most potent platform regarding social media marketing so best to take advantage of it.
Increasing audience is a problem that all bloggers have. I suggest you use your social media accounts to promote your blog. Another use of social media is to follow groups and pages that you think will benefit from reading your blog, in turn you can make full discussions with the members while also promoting your site. Another way is looking for similar blogs like yours and exchanging comments with the blog owner. Why not try doing an exchange of promotions with other blogs? You promote them and they promote you too. I'm sure a lot will be willing to help you out.
Joining social media groups is a great idea to increase your audience. Make sure when you enter one, create engagement first. Place comments that are helpful on the niche, then promote your blog to give the impression that you are a person that can be trusted.
You're right! We need to create engagement first. Talk casually with the members, create friendships and regular conversations. Because a good connection with people is the life line of a successful blog.
Indeed. As a blogger, you don't necessarily have to visit these forums and groups by yourself. I know some who hires a freelancer to do all these things for him so that he can focus on other aspects of the blog like content, etc.
That's a good way to go about it as it would leave the blog owner more time to focus on the blog. And yeah, I think that hiring someone to post and interact for you is ideal. I honestly haven't really thought of that! Thank you for mentioning it!
You're welcome. Once you make money out of the blog, you need to realize that you can't do everything unless you're planning to be a one-person team. Hiring more people is the way to go.
Before anything. I think you should check the content of your site. A catchy introduction would be a good start for the readers. And I agree in using your social media account for more viewers. Just give them the link of your site tell them to try to read it. Happy blogging.
I agree with you, catchy intro is everything. Because if your intro is a bit dry the visitor/s might close the tab even before reading other contents.
I agree with you. I guess, it would be better to focus on your site first before going to different sites to promote your content.
For me, if you have great content, your website is very pleasing to the eyes and your products (if you sell or whatever) has a high quality, then your audience will increase by itself. Of course, constant promotion in social media is also a big help.
Nowadays you can easily promote your blog via social media but you must prioritize your content first. Even though there are many available readers for your blog, if it's not the content they are interested with, more likely they'll just peep into your blog then leave. You have to choose whether you'll write something which you have the most knowledge about or write what other people wants to read. It would be easier though if you'll stick with what your readers want to see but it all depends on you.
Well, for me, the most effective way to increase your audience is to share your contents on social media accounts. Be everywhere as much as possible. Let your friends and followers know what you are up to on your blog. Also, even though you have the ability to draw a lot of people, it would be useless if you don't have the quality and the quantity.
Two things - marketing and providing quality content, it goes hand in hand. You do marketing to increase the people that visit your blog, but if they don't find your content interesting, they'll probably not visit it anymore. I know it depends if they are interested in the niche or not so consider targeted ads when doing you're digital marketing campaigns.
Only through good marketing and through good content. Good content is a must, once you get that done, you need to have a good marketing strategy.
Building an audience takes time for everyone who is new to blogging.
Those who've some experience blogging can grow their audience in a relatively shorter time because they already are familiar with the terrain. They could use SEO, established social media channels and the like to market their new blog and in a short while, there'd be numerous people visiting that blog.
What we can learn from them is: SEO, social media marketing and guest blogging are some of the sure-fire ways to build your blog's audience. Learn SEO, create excellent, valuable content and do a lot of guest blogging. This will get you what you seek.
All the best!
Getting to create content that adds value to the clients that you will have should always be the major objective. Other than that may make you provide less valuable content looking to make more money only to lose the audience.
Dont think to make a profit in vlogging first, just keep uploading and enjoy of your doing. This is the sentence always say of a vlogger.
The lucky ones get to have relevant traffic after 60 days. Some take six months to a year. It all depends on a good marketing strategy and quality content. Being in the right place at the right time might play a factor too.
You have to have a lot of content and attraction for your audience. They need something to see, want to know something and absolutely want to be amused. There are plenty of people who would love to see and hear something that would interest them whether it is something they like, catches their eye or even something that they are intrigued with. One thing you can do for sure to increase your audience is spread it to your friends. Once you give them a link or a poster of your works you will be dropping loads of people even if they do not know you.
Have a network of friends, create blogs and vlogs, make noise on social media. A network of friends of course increases your acquiantances and people who knows you. Creating blogs and vlogs can be tricky and hard but it would pay off. Lastly, making noise on social media, with the help of your friends, is sure to increase your audience because you could get in what's trending.
First, make sure to put out content relevant to the target audience of your blog. Market it thru social media, join groups and/or forums and be active on them and once you have built a connection and rapport with the members then that's the time you advertise your blog. You can also reach out to other bloggers and arrange a deal with them to provide content for each other, that way you can grow your audience together.
How do you increase your audience? I am not a blogger and I don't have any experience in blogging so, I can only give an opinion base on the side of a reader. I usually enjoy blogs that have a lot o valuable information a lot of good content and visual representation. Reading blogs that creatively made are always fun to read, and when your blogs are fun to read more people will surely follow your blogs.
