- Once your blog goes live with a new post, be sure to send it out to your mailing list. People took the time to join your mailing list in the first place, so make sure to send them your best content as it goes live.
- Leverage social networks in your favor. There are over 2 billion users spread across all of the major social networks. Find which social network relates best with your content and niche, then build a marketing campaign around it.
- In addition to social networks, popular social bookmarking sites are still driving millions of visitors to sites daily. Top bookmarking sites include Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious and Reddit.
- Search out relevant online communities and groups that might be interested in your latest content. Not only will you bring in new readers, you will also increase your chances to find people who might also link and share your content as well.
- One of the most effective ways to get more attention to your blog content, is to guest blog post on other sites. When attempting to guest post, be sure to focus on value and creating a relationship with the owner of the site. No one likes a fly-by-night guest blogger that just submits one article and never returns.
