How to Promote a Blog with Social Media?

That’s a big question you want to get the answer.

You will no doubt be aware that you are able to promote a blog with social media but are you aware of the superb results that you are able to get. As with many aspects of internet marketing, I always like to investigate different ways to take advantage of social media and have become quite an expert in this field, even though I say so myself.

Rather than overwhelming you with different aspects of social media I thought it would be a good idea to use Twitter as an example of how to promote a blog with social media. In the case of Twitter with regard to how to promote a blog with social media, it is simply a case of using one of the plug ins that are available which will make reference to any blog post that you make to your Twitter followers. There are several different plug ins that can do this job for you with more becoming available all of the time.

The effect this has on your followers can be quite amazing. Depending on the number of followers that you have, every time that you make a blog post you will see an influx of traffic to your blog from Twitter. Now if the basic rules are adhered to and you are offering top quality in your blog posts, the result will be that you will gain many regular followers to your blog as well as your Twitter account.

If the blog is monetized well you will see that each blog post that is relayed to your Twitter followers will make you money but a far better alternative would be to capture your visitors email address. A short report for instance should be offered in return for a name and email address but the results from this will be far more beneficial than someone just clicking on an Adsense add or by purchasing something through your affiliate link.

Setting up your blog to collect email addresses of people that are interested in the niche of your blog, would be an extremely wise business decision which could go on to benefit you many times over, not just by making money from them but also by building a relationship which could be beneficial to both parties over the course of time.

Make sure that the blog that you have attached to your Twitter account is in the same niche as you would otherwise be completely wasting your time. You should definitely take into account that you are allowed to have more than one Twitter account so you could quite easily use this method with several different blogs which could be spread over several different niches.

As always, keep everything that you do in a way that offers your blog visitors and your Twitter followers top quality advice and information, and if you do you will find that this method of promoting your blog with social media really will prove to be a worth while exercise.

    Great tips, though, but bloggers using social media should also learn social media etiquette so that he or she should not be considered as spam.

    Nice post.

    Social media is now so important in the overall ranking process, I’ve seen pages ranked on page 1 of google purely because of the likes , tweets and plus 1’s it’s received.

    Google know people spam links everywhere so it’s looking for another way to rank posts, social interaction is going to be more important over the coming years.

    • Trung Nguyen says:

      Yep, Mark Thompson, using social media to build link for the blog is great way to get high ranking on search engines such as Google.
