Buzz around the blog is very important for every blogger. Because it drives more traffic and creates awareness. But getting traffic on your blog is not easy. You have to put lots of effort to drive traffic on your blog. Here I am going to explain some of the effective ways that will help you out to do that.
Focus on Outreach Policy
Outreach is an important factor that helps you to create buzz around your blog. One of the best ways to do outreach is to search and reach out to people or organizations in your niche who are not your direct competitors and request them to feature your blog in any possible form. You can also use software like Buzzstream, Ninja Outreach to automate the same process.
Use Power of Social Media
Social media is the most powerful weapon to promote your content. It is must for you to have online presence on almost every social network where your readers hang out. Make an attractive website with good content, unique images, videos and lots more but don’t make it self promotional site. Make it shareable by others too. Give your readers a chance to share your content.
By integrating social share buttons to your blog allows your readers to do so. These social sharing buttons will let your readers share your content with others and improving your social reach and creating buzz.
Be Active in Blogging Communities
Blog commenting is also an effective way of connecting with people of your niche. Be an active member of your niche related blogging and forum communities. Share your blog with such communities, whenever you write an interesting blog. This will help you to expose your blog among a huge audience. Another way is to do blog commenting and keep track records of your comments and post.
