Sites to Use to Promote Your Blog Posts!

So I just started to blog right before Christmas. I had 0 help from anyone! I literally just got on Pinterest.com & started to read other people’s articles on how to get started and what the best sites are out there. I’m still pretty new to this, but the sites I did choose to use have really helped me with my blog! So I’ve decided to put a list together of what I use & I thought it would be beneficial to all of my friends!

**Note this is stuff that has worked for ME, I can not promise that it will work for you. But I do suggest giving it a try!

Facebook!

  •  I honestly do not use my personal facebook for much because I promote music events on my personal Facebook page and that doesn’t go with my “niche” for my blog. But I did make a Facebook page for my blog, I don’t use it a lot, nor do I have a lot of followers, but I am growing my page so please support me and give me a like, leave a comment and I’ll be happy to like your page as well!  #supportoneanother #growtogether
  • I am part of a few groups that have really helped grow my blog, and it helped me find my “niche”.  Two of the groups are closed groups and you have to do an application to get into it. One of my favorites is “Millennial Mommy Bloggers”, this is a smaller group and we do thread every single day. the group of ladies in this group is seriously so supportive! I wish we all could meet up together because they are like my business partners. They are all so kind, supportive, independent, and encouraging. I have so much love for this group! Another group I am part of is called ” Promote your Blog Posts“, I enjoy this group because there are no rules! Everyone can post the new blog that they wrote, and a lot of people on here will read your blog and support it if they are interested. These are the main groups that I really enjoy and I’m super active in them. I’m always looking to join new groups, so if you have any you can share with me I would appreciate it a lot! Groups are great to get into when blogging because you have your group of people all in one spot, and they share your page with all of their friends constantly, it’s really a great idea! I suggest everyone find at least two groups you can join and be active in!
  • The next thing I like on Facebook is “swap n shop” pages. I am part of many swap n shop pages, I’m not going to list these because its best for you to join the pages where you are local. I say these pages because if you are selling items from your page its good to write a blog or a review about the product you are selling, and then you can post it on these pages to make even more sales! It is great! Or if you are doing a giveaway you can post your page on these sites as well!
  • There are ads on Facebook you can also buy on Facebook and that helps you promote your work and get more followers. (I have not actually used this yet, I don’t want to spend money on it yet, but I have heard that it works for people)FB facebook bossprincess101 blogpromoting promotingblog promotingblogs promotingvlogs promotingvlog vlogpromoting

Pinterest!

BossPrincess101

  • I love Pinterest because it has all your ideas in one place! You can create as many boards as you’d like and have each board be a topic! I joined Pinterest in High School so I already had my page made and I had a good amount of followers. I was super lucky with this! With Pinterest, I personally made a couple boards such as “100 of My Blogger Friends” and “Personal Blog” so that its really easy for me to promote my personal blog and my friend’s blogs that I’m part of on Facebook.
  • This site also has an option where you can pay for adds to but I have not used it yet, so I do not know how accurate it is!
  • Tailwind is a good app/site to help you with your pins on Pinterest. Tailwind will tell you the best times to schedule your pins so you can get more traffic to your pins. You can schedule a whole week of pinning so you do not have to actually go on Pinterest and pin your own pins every day, but I will still suggest you should still pin your new blogs every time you make a new one! Also spend 20 minutes every day or every other day to pin stuff that has NOTHING TO DO with blogs, just stuff that you personally like.
  • I have read about how Pinterest has groups you can join, or like board groups, you can join but I personally know nothing about it, nor do I know how to join them. If you would like to know more information about this you can go to my board that says ” Blogging” and read any of the Pinterest articles on there. Also if you have board group and are willing to have me join and teach me I would really appreciate that!

Instagram!

@princessv94

  • So Instagram (IG) is good to post pictures and then have a description below your picture to get traffic. I do not like how we can post links to our pictures but it is what it is. People are attracted to photos, so post good photos and you can get your traffic!
  • Hashtags are EVERYTHING! Make sure you use hashtags on all of your photos and have your account public because you will get so much traffic that way! I have gotten a lot of readers due to these hashtags!
  • There is a new thing on IG where you can have group chats, again I don’t know much about this but I will be learning soon and I will update this blog once I am more educated about this. I know it has something to do with the app called “Telegram” so make sure you download that!

Twitter!

@loveprincessvmb

  • Twitter has not always been the best for me with my blogs. But you again hashtags are EVERYTHING. Make sure you use as many hashtags in your tweets as possible!
  • I personally only follow a few people I like on twitter and I re-tweet positive things. I tweet my articles, quotes, song lyrics, sometimes I post photos. This is probably the least app I use for promoting my blogs & my friend’s blogs.
  • There is a group thing on twitter, but I don’t know anything about it as well. I suggest googling it and finding out more information about it if you’re serious about getting traffic from Twitter. I personally, just do not use my Twitter a lot, so I don’t care. If you are part of any groups are willing to teach me and have me join I would be willing to learn!

Snapchat!

  • I use this app to promote my readings to my story and to certain people that I think would enjoy it! I get very little traffic from here, unfortunately.
  • You can make group snap-chats so you can add certain people and not have to annoy everyone in your snap-chat with your readings!

StumbleUpon!

@veronicabolton94

  • I know once you download this app you will think you won’t get a lot of traffic from it, but this app I actually get the MOST traffic from! All you do is post your article and it will show up on peoples timeline as long as that is a similar interest they picked when they first downloaded the app.
  • The downside to this app is that the app has a thumbs up & a thumbs down. Of course, no one wants a thumb down, but it does happen.
  • People can subscribe to your account so they can always see your readings first as well!
  • stumbleupon bossprincess101 blogpromoting promotingblog promotingblogs promotingvlogs promotingvlog vlogpromoting

Reddit!

@princessvmb

  • This app again is where I get a lot of my traffic! When you download this app it asks you for point of interests, and your readings will pop up on their timeline. You pick community’s that you link and a bunch of readings will pop up.
  • A great thing about this app is that there is SO MANY COMMUNITY’S so you can upload your blog into millions and millions of community’s, so of course the more community’s your blog is in the more traffic you get!
  • The downfall of this app is some communities have some serious rules, so if your like me you do not read those rules because you are posting to a bunch so you are doing it in a rush, they will tell you about 3 times that you messed up than your account goes into lock for however many days. So then you have to wait until you are allowed back on to be able to post more readings!
  • These app people will comment on your posts and interact with you. There is also an area where people can thumbs up or thumbs down your readings. So beware!

Tumblr!

@princessv94

  • This app I personally do not use as much even though I probably should. You post pictures and add a link to your blog underneath the picture. As long as you have an interesting picture than people will click your post and you will get your traffic!
  • People are able to follow your page which is a plus.

Google+!

  • I do not use this site much but it does help some! How? I post new content here every time I have new content.
  • I advertise other people’s content here when they had also shared my mine!
  • You can look through other peoples posts and comment and let them know about your posts! I have heard this work really well for some people.

  1. Thanks for this! It’s freat to have all of these in one place to go over and make decisions. I will look for you on Pinterest . Instagram and telegram?

  2. Great article! I get most traffic from Pinterest, I’ve never tried reddit, but I’m going to look into it now, thanks!

  3. I have to admit Reddit is something I’ve tried to stay away from as I had my account locked many years ago after posting once haha! I just can’t seem to get the hang of it at all.

  4. I’m always so leery about Reddit. I’ve heard people get a lot of traffic through Reddit, but I don’t think my target audience uses that site much.

  5. I liked your Facebook page. 🙂 I have one that I use to promote most posts. It used to bring more traffic than it does. Changes with Facebook have made big differences in engagement and even how many people see what’s on there for me now.

  6. I have thought of using Reddit. I should totally try to see if it will help with my traffic.

  7. Most of my traffic comes from Pinterest. It’s my fave social site as well so I love that it drives the most traffic for me! I mean, who doesn’t like spending all day looking at beautiful imagery on there? 🙂

  9. Hi, I do think this is an excellent site. I stumbledupon it 😉
    I am going to come back yet again since i have saved as a favorite
    it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be
    rich and continue to help other people.
