HOW TO GET MORE PEOPLE READING YOUR BLOG
One of the most common questions I get asked is how can I get more readers to my blog. Especially when your blog is new, it can feel like nobody is reading. One thing I always say is to be patient as it does take time. However, there are always things you can do to get people to read your blog.
My first question is always, are you telling people about your blog or hitting publish and then waiting for the readers to find you?
In today’s video, I am sharing 3 easy ways you can get more people reading your blog. Watch the video below:
Here are 3 simple ways you can tell people about your blog and latest blog posts to get more readers to your blog and keep them coming back for more!
Share on social media
Social media is the easiest way to tell people you don’t know about your latest post. You can share your blog and new (and old) posts across all the different platforms, plus you can share them more than once. One thing you don’t want to be is spammy but instead be creative about how you can use social media to your advantage.
Create a newsletter list
If you don’t have one already, I’d highly recommend you set up a newsletter mailing list and have places people can sign up in various places on your blog. This way you can keep in contact with people who really want to hear from you. It’s important to make sure you email them consistently and you can include links to your latest blog posts too!
