Well, we’re finally nearing the end of the road for GrowTraffic’s Blogging Series, The Blogging Blogs, and we’re now at Part 6; no, I can’t believe it either, but don’t worry – after this one we’ll be having a blogging break and looking at some different subjects for a while. Thank god!
In the meantime, we’ve decide to go out on a bang and so, in this final instalment (for now!) of The Blogging Blogs, we’ve worked our little socks off in order to bring you the ultimate guide to making sure that your blog is read. Before you get too over-excited though, you haven’t heard the best bit yet – it’s FREE!
Now we can’t say fairer than that so, without further ado, let’s get on with the show…
FREE Guide – What To Write And Where To Publish
As with Part 5 of The Blogging Blogs, we’ve moved on from the theory behind blogging and are now into more practical territory. Hence, in The Ultimate Guide To Getting Your Blog Read, I’ve compiled the advice of many SEO experts and distilled it all to put together a useful, step-by-step manual that will help you write and then promote a blog that everyone will want to read.
As I’ve said many times before, there is absolutely no point in writing a blog if nobody is going to read it and so promoting your blog once it is written is just as important as the writing itself. Finding the right places to advertise and publicise your blog is vital if you want your blog to be worth the effort that you’ve taken to produce it, not to mention creating revenue.
To make everything just a little bit easier for you (because life is already hard enough) I’ve put everything into another handy SlideDeck, not only because I have fallen a little bit in love with SlideDeck, but also because I genuinely believe that presenting everything in easy stages, which you can walk through one step at a time, will give you a much better chance of making sure that your blog is an unprecedented success.
The Importance of Growing Your Blog
If you have followed all of the stages that I have described so far with this blogging series then you should by now have a clearly defined set of aims and goals that you want your blog to help you achieve.
Whatever you want your blog to do for you, whether it be to increase the size of your customer base, to increase your revenue or to increase awareness of your brand, the only way that you will achieve it is to continually grow your blog’s readership.
Unfortunately, given factors such as a natural dropping away of readers along the way, working to build awareness of your blog is something that you will more or less constantly need to plug away at. Even if you reach a readership that quite frankly amazes you, you should nevertheless keep going, because you can always make it better and you can always reach more people.
So What Can You Do?
Well, there are actually quite a few ways of getting more people to read your blog and, in the following SlideDeck, I’ll walk you through them one stage at a time. With a little bit of application and quite a lot of hard work, by the time you’ve put the following steps into practice, you should have a blog that is well on its way to rivalling the big boys.
