What are your plans for blogging successfully? Have you thought of implementing new ideas to get your business at the level you’ve dreamed of? If you’re planning on creating a successful blog, below please find 5 business promotional tips for a new blog to get you started:
1. Spread the news about your business with a blog
When you own a business it is extremely important to get your name and business brand out there to the public. By starting a new blog and a newsletter, you are able to offer quality information that can help your business grow.
First, you want to provide quality based articles and information that your readers are able to benefit from and your subscribers want more of by opting-in. Give them a reason to join your newsletter list by providing them with something for FREE in return for their email address. What are free things to offer? You may want to offer a free eBook, tutorial, podcast and/or a coaching session.
2. Article marketing
What does a blog need to contain to keep readers interested? Quality based articles, videos, tutorials, infographics, pod-casts are all elements that will entice people to visit your blog. Write and submit your written work to article directories and/or guest post for other blogs in your chosen niche. Make sure to add a resource box at the end of each article submission with your business name and URL for promotional purposes. Check out http://ezinearticles.com/.
Traffic is essential to anyone who owns a blog. It is obvious that without traffic we have no customers or sales. To gain traffic, we have to work at it consistently and persistently. There are many ways to get traffic back to your blog/site; for example, give something out for free, make your site interactive, adding videos, infographics and pod-casts. Create an XML sitemap for your blog to submit to Google, visit message boards, forums and social media sites and get involved.
4. Advertise offline
Don’t forget about offline advertising. Expand your business by promoting offline as well. You can start with creating flyers/brochures, business cards, brainstorm by sponsoring events and appearing on radio stations.
5. Link building
Linking your blog is a great way to get additional visits to your business and help with search engine ranking. There are many websites that can help with this task. For example, check out http://www.interlinkexchange.com/.
