Blog marketing- Keep it simple!

How often do you market your blog?

Blog owners know first hand that in order to make any money from their blogs, they need traffic, and lots of it. This also applies to articles, and websites. But, how do you market your blogs? Are there tricks?

Blog marketing is very easy to do. It is all about showing your audience, or attracting an audience and keeping them interested in your work.

Having a blog and being able to market it means having a source of EXPOSURE for your work. I use my blog Beyond Words to create traffic to my work here on Hubpages, and on other websites.

Maintaining a blog, and marketing is all about having a proper strategy to your work. First you have be able to maintain it, keep your content up to date, and keep updating your blog. You also have to work on getting your work exposure, as your blog keeps growing, and this is where too many bloggers get stuck.

So, here are some tips to maximize exposure, and create a great source of income!

Your words are worth MONEY!

So, keep your work FRESH!

I try to post new blog posts as often as three to four times a week on my Beyond words blog. This can be a difficult task, as many of my followers have noticed that I have been gone for the past couple of weeks. As hard as it has been to stay away from Hubpages, I have also managed to create another source of income from my blog. This is simply because many of my followers have joined me on my blog, that is updated almost every single day.

Updating your blog as often as possible is not only a SMART way of creating traffic, but it can also be the EASIEST way of doing so.

It is hard to continuously update your blog. I know I have a hard time doing so often, however, my income has Increased, and so has my traffic. Constantly updated blogs are TWICE as likely to get indexed by Google, and come up more often on search engines. My blog has been getting more traffic, due to the fact that I fill my blog posts with Keywords, and update it almost everyday!


I want to Know what you have to say.

And so do millions of other people, so SHARE YOUR BLOGS.

The best part about having a blog, is that there are fewer restrictions to where you can submit your work to. Search engines, article directories, and social bookmarking sites are more welcoming when you own your own blog(s). So, do not be afraid to share your work on search engines, and article directories when your work is fresh, and your own. You actually have more luck getting the attention of more readers in the process.

Marketing blogs is easier in a sense. Blogs are much more PERSONAL to other writers, unlike writing websites, because readers see you work only. This is the reason why blogs most of the time get much more traffic than writing websites do!

Take time to design your Blog.

This is one of the most important pieces of information that you could EVER receive! I mean it! Take the time to create a blog WORTH COMING BACK TO! This is very important. It's almost as important as keeping your Blog content up-to date. Since people are coming back to read your work, you might as well make the blog look PROFESSIONAL!

I've spent hours designing my Blogs. I wish I was joking, but I'm not. When a blog looks professional, it makes ALL OF THE DIFFERENCE! Bloggers that take the time to design, and create professional looking Blogs, attract MORE visitors, and create more LOYAL readers.

A crappy looking blog will have a much higher difference in traffic than a professional looking blog. I should know!
