  • Sign up to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook.
  • Make friends by adding people who you think will be interested in your blog. Have a look at their interests to give you an idea.
  • Add social media button to your site and make your new blog posts send updates automatically to the social media sites.

Niche is the common topic you will post into your blog. If you make blogs for pet grooming, then pet grooming is your common niche. Stick to this niche and make posts related to it.

Newsletter helps you get in touch with your readers. It enables you to develop long-term relationships thus gain permanent readers.

10. Video Marketing

Video enables you to engage audience more compared to text as people prefers to watch videos than read long texts.

    Content is King!
