Four simple ways to increase your blog's traffic without paying a dime.

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well. For me, I am well and feeling blessed as usually

For the past few weeks we’ve been covering some serious things in the areas of Social sector reporting, best ways to present your social problem and solution. I still have more exciting stuff lined up for you, so don’t plan to miss anything from the series.

 For this week’s post I had planned to continue on our series covering ‘Theory of Change’ However, since there is a need to help some friends out there, in this week’s post I will share with you some of the easiest things you can do to increase the readership of your blog posts and get more readers to your blog. Here are four things you can do, anyone can practice them.

While it’s obviously important to spend time writing content for your blog, it’s also important to promote the blog and get your name out there in the blogging community. Successful blogging takes more than just writing great content. Even if you have a top-quality blog, you can’t expect everyone to come unless you promote your content and build a following.

Many of us are publishing content as a way to build audiences and increase traffic to blogs. However, we fail to get everything we could from each piece of content we create. If we are serious about the content we write, then we also need to be serious about driving as much traffic to it. So, how can we get more people to know us and read our posts without spending a dime! Here are easy tips.

Write for others: Guest blogging is one of the best online marketing strategies you can invest in. It is one of the powerful ways of building strong, high-quality relationships that may help you in multiple ways, including developing business opportunities and professional connections, setting brand value and, of course, acquisition of link juice. If you want to reach more people become a guest writer on someone else’s blog, especially blogs that resonate with yours. When you write for other blogs or sites that resonate with yours, it leads those sites linking to your blog.

Leave comments on other blogs: Blog commenting is still an effective strategy no matter what you may have heard. Commenting helps build your brand, increase’s your credibility, helps with social media, and can even enhance your SEO campaign. You need to comment on other people’s blogs, however, ensure that their blog content resonates with yours. Blogs allow you to include a website link with your blog comment. Making blog comments can help build links over time. If the comment you left on their site resonates with the content they have written, people will be willing to follow up with your blog.

Share on Social Medias: Share your content on social media platforms. From my experience, the social media sites that send the most traffic to blogs in general are, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ Pinterest, and LinkedIn. Properly sharing your blog posts via your social media channels will help deliver a steady stream of visitors to your blog.

Let and help others share your content: If the topic is interesting it will be shared, even without buttons, no matter of what kind of niche. When you understand what motivates people to share, you’ll be more successful. People are often motivated to share posts that say good things about them or highlight a positive trait. Your audience is more likely to comment on and share content that sounds like a real person wrote it. Give people the ability to read and share your content.

There you have it, four simple ways to increase your blog's traffic without paying a dime. I hope the tips shared here will help you increase traffic on your blog.

I wish you all the best and I hope that you put them to practice for success.

Until next time
Chaow Chaow!
