Create your email list. Whenever a blog goes live on your website, make sure that you share it with your clients/readers/customers personally. This can be done by sending them a personalized email and informing them about your new blog. A good email with a catchy subject line and email format is likely to get a more open rate.

Tip: Make sure to provide the option of direct social share through emails. So, if anyone from the email list likes the content, then they will be able to share it on their social media platforms. 

3) Guest Posts

If you are just starting off your blogging journey, then a guest post is the best way for blog promotion. Guest post, might not show the instant result, but it is very helpful in the long run. 

Just adding a link to your website in the guest post won’t give great results.

Instead, provide your audience what they want and they will visit your website for sure.

For e.g., a link inside the blog performs better than an author bio link.

You can also provide links in an infographic that will redirect to the blog on the website.
