Hey everyone! Today I am going to be giving you some tips on how to help your blog grow, but a special summer edition! Don’t forget to answer the question at the end for a shoutout on twitter (leave your twitter). Lets get into the tips!
The first thing is to have a schedule. Don’t just post randomly whenever you want, post on certain days of the week or a certain frequency. Make sure you post regular also, your readers will get to know your routine.
Tags and Categories
On WordPress there are categories and tags. Use these to draw more attention to your blog. For example if people search makeup routine and you have that as one of your tags or categories then your post will pop up. It makes it a lot easier for people to stumble upon your post.
Twitter is the BEST social media for bloggers. You gain loyal followers on twitter and can also advertise when you post a new post. I really like connecting with all of the bloggers on twitter. Follow me @BlogBriana.
I have definitely noticed a difference of views when I use photography vs not having pictures. People love to have things to look at when reading a post, so I try to include simple pictures.
A little trick I learned is to use images from Pinterest. If I am doing a summer post about things to do I can just look up a picture of a beach and then save it. The images are normally a lot cuter than ones on google.
During the summer we tend to do a lot more adventuring around. So try to share your adventures and take pictures. I know that I love to see peoples adventures when they share them on their blog.
I always love participating in follow trains on twitter. Just follow the rules and check out other bloggers blogs and accounts. It is an easy way to gain attention and really nice followers while also helping others out.
I ALWAYS use hashtags when on Instagram ( https://www.instagram.com/bbeautyandlifestyle/ ) or Twitter. This makes it so your post pops up for some one who searches for a specific topic. I get way more likes and interaction when I use hashtags.
I try to post about what brands I use on my Instagram. I tag the brand in an Instagram story and sometimes brands will repost peoples Instagram stories on their account. This is great exposure to an audience that may be interested in your blog.
Relevant Topics and Names
Make sure you are posting about things that people would like to see at the time. Like I would post a summer hacks post in the summer vs posting a life hacks post whenever. This will help draw in more readers.
That is all of the tips right now! Please like and comment if you enjoyed!
