Top Five Places To Share Your Awesome Website Content:
(not including Facebook or Twitter)
You’ve written an awesome blog post or have some exciting news to share. You’ve posted it on your Facebook page, shared it on your personal profile for your friends to see, and even added the title and a link to your article on your Twitter feed.
Great. Now what?
How do you get more people to see Your Awesome Blog Content?
For most people, Facebook and Twitter is as far as they get. When they review their analytics (you do have a way to measure traffic going to your website right?) they find that 50 or 60 people have viewed the content. Most people don’t even get that much.
Below are the Top Five Places To Share Your Awesome Website Content.
Digg – Digg is fairly simple to use. Register, post a link with a good title and description and off you go. Next.
But like most of these sites, the more active you are, the more credibility you have. So stick around and interact with some of the content other people are posting as well.
Reddit – I like Reddit, but it’s sometimes cliquey. So proceed cautiously here. Read the rules of each of the subreddits (groups) and do your best to build up credibility and points by interacting with other people’s posts.
Instagram – These days, you have to have a photo that accompanies your blog post. It’s a fact that links to articles that have photos are much more likely to be clicked on, than those that are just text.
Since you already have that photo, share it through Instagram, and then add a link to your amazing blog article in the photo description.
LinkedIn – ideal for B2B bloggers, LinkedIn has consistently gained users, and with Microsoft’s purchase in 2016, expect it to grow even bigger.
If you’re writing for business owners or other professionals, then definitely give LinkedIn a try.
Your Email List – Email marketing is far from dead. Of course, traditional media who hate everything digital, and social media sites who want your advertising dollars are very quick to declare it’s death.
However, more and more businesses are making money simply sending emails to both existing and past customers. They are busy building lists by offering access to downloads and discounts and finding other legitimate ways to increase their email contact list.
According to Industry Reports, throughout 2018, over $970 million dollars US was made through email marketing, showing that the practice is far from dead.
Make sure you send your existing email lists your new awesome content. Built in email applications like Acymailing for Joomla allow you to connect your articles directly to an email and send it off to your targeted lists quite easily.
When your subscribers receive content and not a sales pitch they appreciate the fact that you’re not always trying to sell them something, and will pay more attention to that special sale when the time comes.
This is the tip of the proverbial iceberg in the number of ways there are for you to get your articles viewed by new potential customers. Remember, the overall objective is to increase website visitors to the products and services you are trying to sell. A fresh blog post on a regular basis is a great way to day that.
The important thing is to go and do it.
