Blogging is not about think, write and publish -it’s all about the marketing strategy. Have you ever imagined why lots of other new blogs are getting higher traffic volumes than you do? Why new sites are getting better page ranks and why such a low quality articles are getting bookmarked? The reason is they did other things instead of writing articles. On this article I’m going to write about blog out posts and how to successfully use them for your site.
Blog, out posts are just like outlets of shops and different companies. The main goal is not about the sales everytime, it’s about getting noticed. Have you thought that before why celebrities appear on TV shows? Why business people appear on conferences? or why companies open an outlet on business expos? The reason for them is to show up their selves in front of people. This is why we need to put our blog’s brand in different places of the internet. Let see couple of examples,
As a blogger you must have a BlogCatalog account. This is the ideal place to meet bloggers, a community dedicated to bloggers. Submit your blog and get listed. Their search engine won’t send you much traffic, but new bloggers will find your blog from BC. You can also join the discussion, make friends and can create a group about your brand.
MyBlogLog is the famous community to have you blog listed. It’s the oldest blog community engine and it has lots of benefits. Sign up for MyBlogLog with your Yahoo ID and submit your blog. Get new community members, message them, create a widget and get statistics. Join BlogKori on myBlogLog.
Facebook is a must have out post. A lot of people use facebook and off course the non tech savvy people are the majority. A facebook addict will search on facebook after they hear about your brand. Now you can create two things for your blog in facebook, a page or a group. Setting a group is easy and invite your FB friends to make it crowdy. You can create a fan page for your blog and it’ll be much more appreciated. Be a fan of BlogKori on Facebook.
Ahh, this is the latest trend of web 2.0. Tech savvy people will search for your official twitter home, twitter.com/your-name. This is a must have out post for your blog. Try to have your name on twitter like, twitter.com/blogkori. If you’re not using the account, then do what I did with my account,
5. Social profiles
You must use other social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious and many more. Don’t forget to add your blog link and write a short bio about it. These will work as your other out posts.
6. Article directories
Write some articles on article directories such as Ezine Articles and E-articles.info. Add your blog link on those articles. There are other popular services like Squidoo and Hubpages where you can put your brand. The best way to use these two sites as your out post is to create a self made wiki about your blog.
7. Guest posts
Guest posts can be used as an out post too. Look around your blog niche and connect with your fellow authors. Write some interesting articles for them and this will give you a chance to appear infront of a new audience.
Using landing pages
You might want to keep the visitors coming from your out posts. The best way to send them to a customized page is to use a landing page. Read this article: Lets create an effecting landing page to welcome new visitors!
