20 Places to share your blog posts after publishing

Virtually every blogger dream is to wake up to thousands of views, but sorry to tell you hunay – those views wouldn’t automatically increase: people will not magically land on your blog without you seriously promoting your blog posts. Your work has only begun once you hit the “Publish” button – now, it’s time to share your blog posts to the thousands of potential views that will come from promoting on different platforms.

 

20 places to share your blog posts after publishing

 

A general rule is that you should spend twice as much time promoting your post, as you do creating it.

 

Promoting yourself is the only way to get “out there”. If you don’t do it, nobody else will. Millions of people are vying for attention online and you have to be just as aggressive as they are! Choke your friends, family, social media – Ok, I’m joking! Just try not to be annoying.

 

I remember a few of my family and friends complained about getting my new post broadcast on what’s app and BBM and as if that’s not enough I still tag them on Facebook. Lol I had to respect their wishes and remove them from either my BBM or what’s app broadcast list. I thought that approach was aggressive but with the results I was getting it wasn’t aggressive enough.

 

Truth is, No matter how great your content is, it needs to be found by people who are interested in what you have to say. SO, if you want to drive massive traffic or increase your blog’s visibility like whoa, then you need to plan, focus, and commit to that goal.

 

OK… with that being said, here are 20 places to share your posts and promote it to live up to its fullest potential!

    Promoting a post is actually a struggle. To me, creating content is simpler. I agree with Kachee, why can’t they just find my blog miraculously. Most times, I’m saddled with thoughts like, “hope I’m not being a disturbance?” which is so frustrating. But there are things one must do to succeed. Thanks for the list. Quora blogs- never thought of that, considering the fact that I read from there regularly.

    First of all, on a completly unrelated topic- we were both born in the North! Just found that out via one of your fab comments! I dont speak Hausa though, my sisters can as they schooled there. I think its a biiiiiutiful language, my fav of all Naija languages. When a man speaks it, if he looks right, he can get it. Ok back to topic at hand. I am soooo going to save this post to come back to it coz I am having MAJOR problems in this area. As they say blogging is 20% writing and 80% marketing, and that 80% is tricky. I use some of these platforms but wonder how effective they are really. Google Analytics tells me that Instagram aint that great for leads but I stay on it coz its great for contact, building r/ships, showing my stylist work…I signed on to Reddit, published one post and was like- I cant be bothered with this. Too many strands and sections. I’d love to know who it works for. I’m trying to crack Google+….I am yet to find a good Facebook book. I am on the same one you are the Fashion, Lifestyle etc and sooooo many people when they publish posts, dont get up to one Like, so I’m like does anyone actually click those links.
    I’d love to meet you to have a chat about this as you have relaunched your blog and can see you are charging forward so would be interesting to know what’s working for you. ( :

    I just had to comment.
    Great post. And very helpful. I think I would just tick them till I find one that works for me. The hard part is actually promoting it. As per social media I am as inactive as can be on Facebook even on my personal page. Twitter is just there even though I have an account. Besides very few people know that I have a blog. So that’s another issue.
    Thanks for this.

    Lol at annoying your friends. Most of my traffic come from my fb page. Unfortunately fb wants payment to boost posts to fans. I think that really sucks but I do boost for the minimal $ allowed and that drives traffic to my blog. Great tips!

    “Content is king but promotion is queen and she wears the pants.” Read something like that on Kacheetee.com and it is true!
    I just wanted to be a writer but I quickly discovered that for my blog to succeed, I needed some social marketing skills. So I had to learn how to share. I mostly share on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Still trying to understand Stumble Upon.
    I find that trying to master all the sharing platforms could be overwhelming so it helps to master one at a time then add others with time.
    Lol at you sharing on What’s App, BBM and still tagging your friends and family! We need to be aggressive sometimes. Thank you for sharing!
