The basics of your traffic are support and friendship.
The traffic to your blog depends on the relationships you’ve built.
When the competition becomes intense, the people who have more connections win. Building a large network is your top priority as a blogger.
You may find yourself wondering: Where do I get new friends? How do I make them help me?
I was thinking a lot about this, as I wanted to find a quick solution to this problem.
I was contemplating all the promotional techniques I knew, but they all require time and money, and it’s almost impossible to do it all by yourself.)
Since I’m in the same situation as you (now I’m a blogger too), I understand very clearly that certain pieces of marketing experts’ advice aren’t suitable for me.
Not everything works for bloggers who have families and other jobs.
We don’t have as much free time.
I read many such articles while I was looking for the best way out of this situation. For 6 months, I was doing nothing but reading and posting on my Twitter account (in addition to the rest of my work, so don’t go thinking that I was a couch potato).
Quite often, I could find something new for me not in the post itself, but in the comments.
In the comments, debates flare up everywhere you look. The comments are where people bring forward their opinions like they’ve got something to prove.
In reading those comments, we not only get the author’s opinion on a given subject but also the opinions of dozens and sometimes hundreds of other people.
All those who argue passionately about your topic are your target audience. This works well for both bloggers and big companies.
Now, you have to approach them and ask them to share your content.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Find your future friends among the commenters (using blogger outreach).
- Become Facebook friends with the most active members of the thematic groups.
- Divide the list of your friends into two groups: the authorities and the regular bloggers.
- Take a different approach with each group.
- Make a list of respectful communities that have significant traffic.
- Make friends. Do something useful for them and then… ask them to share your content!
If you don’t ask, they won’t help you.
Your growth will always depend on your ability to ask. Look beyond your embarrassment and fear of hearing the word NO!
Since childhood, I’ve been afraid of this word unlike anything else.
In reality, people are very kind, and they’re always willing to help.
When the person you ask for help is interested in your topic, the magic of promotion happens.
Your future friends are waiting for you because their engagement is at its peak. After all, they’ve already commented on this topic, haven’t they?
