Although it is easy to make a tweet along with a link of your blog post attached to it but getting a sustainable traffic out of is really a challenge. And the challenge has its own rewards. You will get credibility via your social media presence and this will surely makes you stand out as an expert.
So what are the key points here that a blogger should keep in his mind in order to get a sustainable amount of traffic. And that’s what this blog is all about so let’s have a quick go through on the details!
Post your blog content frequently:
Have you ever heard of the 80/20 rule of Social Media? No I am not talking about 80% results come out of 20% of work. With this 80/20 rule I would like to highlight the rule of business world where 80% of your social media posts contains the other interesting content that people would love to share and 20% of all your posting should focus on business related content that also include some persuasive calls to actions. Not only this but also spend 80% of your all over time that you spend online in sharing other people’s content and keep 20% share of that time to spread your own blog post. Believe this is effective.
Outsource some of your work:
Now you must be thinking if you hand over the work that you already are doing to someone then how will you be able to get the traffic. But with this you can save a lot of time that can be re-purposed towards more profitable activities that can get you more blog traffic. You can utilize this valuable time in mastering Ad Words, Facebook advertising and other traffic gaining activities.
Turn cross- promotion into our friend:
Well this can be proven as the secret ingredient that is buried deep within your cookbook for a successful marketing strategy. This behaves as the king of Ace in promoting your brand’s online presence. So what’s this secret has to offer??
Cross promotion is simply making use one of your social media platform to promote rest other social media platforms. This seems very innocent at first but the main thing lies back here. For example when you upload a video on YouTube, you also promote this video on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on some other social media networks. This YouTube Video also at some point either in the description or at the end of the video promotes your Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and other social media accounts that you have.
This automatically creates an infinite loop where an user consumes a content from the same person across multiple social media platforms. And if your content is worthy enough then chances are you may get a great fan following on every social media network.
Make it easy for people to share your content:
The easier it is for people to share it, the more they would like to put an effort. You generally see a bunch of social media share buttons at the bottom of many blog posts. You click on the button and a social media post shows up. So if you really want to increase your chances of people sharing your content then you need to simplify this process. Including social share buttons at the top or at the bottom of blog post when you actually have an extra large content seems not to be a wise choice at all instead you can opt drop-down approach or you can add these plugins in your sidebar to make it easily visible to the people.
