Most of us have writing blog posts figured out. Even someone just starting knows they need to write a blog post. Without posts our blogs are literally empty and no one will ever visit us at an empty blog. After all we have all heard it said that “Content is King”.
The real question is what do we need to do after the post is written and published on our blogs. What needs to be done to really make the content king?
So, after you have published your post to your blog you want to promote that post. There are several different ways you can do this.
1. Send Email To Your List
Go to the auto responder of your choice and write an email that will be sent to your entire list announcing that you have just published a new post.
This is a great way to stay in touch with your list and also let them know that you have added another post to your blog so they can go and read your new post.
I use Aweber** for my auto responder and really like it. It is very easy to use.
2. Share Your Post On Social Networking Sites
Sharing your post on all of the social networks will get more exposure for your post and help to drive traffic to your blog.
Personally I just manually share my post to all of the social sites I want it on. I do this by using my social share buttons at the end of my post.
3. Submit Your Post To A Blog Carnival
Blog Carnival is a blog carnival that I have used in the past.
A blog carnival is when a person collects multiple good posts on one topic and then combines all of the posts into one blog post called a carnival.
Submitting your post to a blog carnival is a great way to get more exposure to you your blog and your post.
4. Submit Your Post To Bookmarking Sites
Submitting you post to bookmarking sites is a great way to gain exposure as well as building backlinks. I know that backlinks are not as important as they were at one time but they are still beneficial.
A great way to submit a post to many bookmarking sites is to use the tool Social Monkey**. Social Monkey will submit your URL to multiple bookmarking sites over several days. They use an article spinner to make the submissions all different. There is a free and paid version of this tool.
5. Use Triberr
Triberr is a great place to get your post in front of a lot of people. If you don’t know how to use Triber check out this post Can You Navigate Triberr?. I wrote this some time ago and it goes into just how to use Triberr.
6. Comment On Other People’s Blog Posts
Get out there and comment on other people’s blog posts. This is probably the best way to grow your blog. It creates natural backlinks and gets more comments on your blog.
These are just 6 things that you can do after you have published your post to your blog. I am sure there are many more things that can be done.
Do You Have Ideas?
Do you have more ideas on things that can be done after publishing posts in order to get more exposure to a blog?
I love comments and would love to hear what you do to share your post?
Even is you don’t have any more ideas I would love to hear from you. Just comment with your thoughts.
