Simple Ways to Bring Traffic to Your Business Blog—That Will Take 5 Minutes or Less
You just looked at the analytics and realized that no one seems to read your blog except you. You want people to notice your business blog, especially if you are starting a business and need new clients fast.
So bring traffic to your blog with these simple tips :-
Social media is a great tool to get your blog noticed quickly. Link your blog to your Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts so your friends and followers will know when you post a new article. Most blog programs have an option to link social media automatically to your blog, or you can cut and paste the link yourself.
Make it Useful
Sorry, but no one wants to read about your mission statement. Leave the boring information for your website. People go to blogs to read something interesting and engaging. If you have a business developing computer apps, then perhaps your blog could be about the hottest trends in computer apps or top free computer apps. Make it something that your clients would actually want to read—and that they can use.
Make it Original
Word of mouth is still a great way to promote your business. Make your blog something that people will want to talk about and share with their friends. If it’s the same old boring stuff that is already floating around on cyberspace, then no one will want to read it. Add a funny picture or video or link to an unusual news story related to your industry. If it is engaging and original, everyone will talk about it.
Make it Profitable to Clients
You see businesses promote special offers on social media to increase traffic. Use the same idea for your blog. Promote special offers exclusively on your blog. Advertise the offers through social media or other marketing tools and tell everyone to read your blog for exclusive offers or insider secrets.
Connect to Other Bloggers
Take a look at what other bloggers in your industry are up to and let them know you read their blog. Send them a link to your blog and invite them to read it. Chances are, they will add you to their list of favorite blogs and bring their readers to your site.
Hyperlinks give your blog more visibility online. Find the key words in your blog like proper names, locations, or business terms and hyperlink them. This will help others in your industry or potential clients stumble upon your blog faster.
A simple Google ad can bring traffic quickly. Most bloggers report an immediate increase in readers after purchasing a Google ad for their blog.
Invite Guest Bloggers
Find someone in your industry that has a popular blog with a steady flow of loyal readers. Invite him or her to write a guest article or ask if you can publish one of his or her blog posts on your site. Hyperlink the blog and the loyal readers will have to go to your blog to check out their favorite blogger. Chances are they will bookmark your blog or pass it on to friends.
