How To Go About Promoting Your New Blog

After you set up a blog and start adding some posts, you will want to get the word out. To do that, you can use social bookmarking, which is just a way of tagging that blog post into areas that collect information from all over the web. It works about the same as when you bookmark a site in your web browser for yourself, except for social bookmarking you are doing it to a social storage area where many people can see what you’ve bookmarked. People who subscribe to these services and are searching for specific content have an easier time finding it then.

You have to really first understand your market before you can try to sell to them with your content and website. What I mean by this is to present yourself on your website as someone that your market can trust. If you are in a rock band and are selling your CD on your website, you probably don’t want to have a video on there with you dressed up in a suit sitting at some ritzy desk. And on the other hand, if you are selling a business solution you won’t want to be dressed up as a rocker.

I graduated college with a biology degree. Any real job Ive had has involved working with animals or bra-fitting at J.C. Penney. I currently know less than HTML codes and Ive never taken a class or read a book on web design Photoshop or anything to do with any WordPress blogs internet techie stuff.

When it comes to listening to music, I get bored with listening to the same old tracks. The beauty of Last FM is that it “learns” what you like, and creates your own personal playlist based on your tastes So listening to music stays fresh.

This is firmly in the Productivity section. I have a number of WordPress bloggen blogs, and this superb application allows me to update my blog directly, and add posts and pages, check comments and all see your visitor statistics, all while sitting on the train. It allows for multiple blogs, and is easy to switch between them.

No one is going to really trust what you have written unless you have proven yourself trustworthy before. Therefore it is best to mention that somewhere in your sales copy right away. Let them know that you are best known for producing this or that they might remember you from giving away this other product. Even though they might not know what product you are referring to, the fact that you did something before already puts you as somewhat more credible in their mind. Now they might trust you enough to buy from you.

The drawback is such platform usually don’t allow you to host all the blog posts on your own domain. This gives away branding opportunity, not to mention that you have no way to leverage the inbound links on your own domain.
