However, before I start talking about some powerful blog promotion methods from the top marketing experts of today. Get a blog that rocks and you'll get much much more impact from these powerful blog promotion methods!
1. Before Everything Else Your Blog Has To Rock!!
By the way, to make this more ingestible, I'm going to give it to you in bite sized chunks. This is the first part on getting your blog right before you start on the rest!
Blogs are meant to be informative by nature. They were created so you could journalize content for readers in a neat way. So you should use that concept in your blogs posts by making your content helpful to the community and its intended niche target of people. Not just typing anything just to put it up there that contains your keywords you want to rank for it in. But actually asking yourself "Is this helpful/useful to me?" and if the answer is no making it so that it is.
What will make your blog stand out from the rest of the blogs in that same niche? Why should people read or even take notice of your blog if it looks and sounds the same as the rest? By being unique and figuring out what your value proposition is and by helping people to know why they should even pay attention to what you're blogging about and then buy your products. To be unique, research and look at other blogs, identify things they're missing in their content, go the mile further and provide what they never.
A blog is for all sorts of things, a blog isn't just for blogging about products but also for telling stories. And since stories usually always involve people and have a "moral" to every story, since they give people a way to relate with and identify with you on human levels, telling stories on your blog (that are somewhat possibly connected to your niche) is one way of gaining peoples attention and giving them that Eureka moment.
Those experts before you aren't just experts by their own merit. Some of them used to piggy back on the backs of other experts before them! You can't see those experts as your rivals/competitors, but rather as the enemies you need to keep closer to you than your own friends. But by quoting experts in your blog posts you'll show that you've researched your content first to back up some of your arguments and cases.
Be Trend Responsive
By being one of the first blogs to blog about a new trend, it's likely Google will rank your blog highest for it as it ranks by discovery date. But by being responsive and one of the first to blog about new angles or concepts and questions, problems/solutions on some of the latest emerging trends that are popping off right now will help your blog in many ways other than just being ranked high by Google for it.
Okay that completes part 1 of the guide. In the next part of this guide you'll learn how not to make all your efforts go to waste and learn to make sure your content is discoverable!
As a blogger, are you being helpful and unique and taking advantage of stories, experts and being responsive to the latest trends in your niche?
