Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is going to be all about growing your blog, but before we get started I want to share something cool with you all.
I have recently started a fiverr! Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services. I have posted some blog design and book cover design gigs that I would love for you to purchase. And for a limited time, anyone who signs up to buy on Fiverr, clicking this affiliate link will get 20% off their first purchase! (this will give a small commission to me which I would really appreciate!) I would also love if you buy one of my gigs!
But enough of that for now!
Tip Number 1: Communicate
Communication is the ultimate key to growing your blog audience. Following bloggers, leaving comments and liking posts allows others to actually notice your blog. Don’t know what to comment? Here are some conversation starters that I recommend using.
Great Post! I love [whatever the post was about (only say this if you truly like what the blogger was talking about)] too! I am a [(new) (fellow [niche])] blogger and I would love if you could check out my blog!
Hi I liked your post! Your blog is really [positive compliment] I was wondering if you could check out my website
Loved your post! I also am a [book blogger or whatever niche you are] I was wondering if you could check out my blog!
Sometimes you don’t even have to ask them to check out your blog! Whenever a nice blogger I haven’t seen before comments on my posts, I like to visit their blogs.
Also, make sure you frequently communicate with the followers you already have!
The cool thing about collaborating with other bloggers is that you get a chance to reach more people by being linked to their website. Their followers can check out your blog, meaning that you may have a chance of getting more followers. Especially if you collaborate with a bigger blog.
3: Use Social Media
If you are allowed to use social media, it can be a great way to expand your blog. Right now I use Instagram and post book photos and blog spoilers on there. It can be effective if you keep focus, but you can get easily distracted.
I have never tried this, but I know many people who have gotten a bigger audience by doing giveaways. Everyone loves freebies! and no one minds reposting and telling their followers to join the giveaway Which leads to more followers!
5: Do you!
Be yourself and make your blog true to you!
I hope this post helped you! What’s your favorite way to grow your blog audience?
