How I Got My First 1000 Followers
When I Started Blogging, I Did the Research
My First 1000 Followers are Still on My Email List
When we first start blogging, I feel it’s important to have a couple different niches. That way, more people come to the blog. It’s important to write about things that people need to know about or need help with. My goal has always been to help people and pets.
Social Media is the place to start. Make sure your posts get “out there” on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Stumble Upon, LinkedIn, Google+ and Instagram, plus any others you are connected to. Promote the post 3 times a day, where you can. On Pinterest, make sure you have some group boards you belong to. That way your post can be promoted on more than one board and more people will see it.
Join groups on Facebook and Google Plus, where you can learn about blogging, or promote each others blogs. On Twitter, make sure to use the correct hashtags for what you are writing about. You can join groups on LinkedIn too. Instagram uses hashtags too, so be sure to use them so people will find you. On StumbleUpon, make sure to share others. They seem to want that a lot.
Guest Posting is important to get more traffic. Request to post for the bigger bloggers. Make sure you can write about what their readers go there for. That way, they read your post and want to go to your blog for more.
Pinterest Party Link Ups can bring a lot of traffic. I keep a List of those and try to make it there right when they start. That way, I’m at the top and get seen more. Although some are set to “random spots” so you can get to the top, even if you’re the last one. Make sure to click on some posts and leave comments and share.
Commenting on other blogs is also important. That way, they will probably, although not always, come to your blog and comment, also. All bloggers should be helping each other and sharing our posts.
Giveaways is another way to get new visitors. And if they like what you write about, they’ll see that and then keep coming back. If you don’t have your own, you can always help promote others. That way you both get more traffic. You can also have a Giveaway Linky.
Your Social Media Links should be at the top of your pages or in the sidebar, so everyone can follow you where they want to. So many times, I’ll be reading a post and I can’t find a way to follow them. And make sure they can sign up for your emails, very easily!
I hope these tips help you get more traffic! Thank you very much for stopping by! Do you have any tips for me? Leave them in the comments, please.
