How to get more visitors to your blog

 21st April 2009 by gihan

One of my colleagues recently asked me:

“I am getting into my blog. I need assistance in ways I can really “make this fly” as I am realising that it is a great way for me to put my IP into practical use for people. So, I’d like you to visit the blog and then help me find ways to drive people to it.”

I replied with a series of suggestions, which I’ll share here with some minor editing to preserve confidentiality:

  • Every time you write a blog post, tweet it.
  • Subscribe to other blogs about [your topic area] and comment on them whenever they mention your topic.
  • Find and participate in on-line communities on these topic areas.
  • Add the blog address (INSTEAD of your Web site address) to the bottom of your one-page “tip sheets”.
  • Give these tip sheets away to selected colleagues for them to distribute.
  • Link to it from your Web site.
  • Make it appear automatically in your Facebook profile.
  • Make it appear automatically in your Thought Leaders Central profile.
  • Make it appear automatically on your First Step Community profile.
  • Add a link to it in your LinkedIn profile.
  • Start a group in Thought Leaders Central.
  • Incorporate it into some interesting group activity for [a regular networking group he facilitates] (e.g. Print 10 blog posts and use them as starting points for … ???)
  • Go back to recent clients and offer them something similar (probably online).
  • Find/start a group about [your topic area] at

The point is, it’s not just one thing. It’s about being passionate about your area of expertise, and then you’ll naturally find ways to promote your blog.

    >I have made some decent money using my three main blogs with Google AdSense. But here is a great method I have been using to make money online.

    I purchased a digital product from the ClickBank marketplace and reviewed the product. Once I did this, I followed what I read to see if I would get the same results the writer did.

    I did a short video teaching others what I learned and then made a recommendation to purchase the product at the end of the video. Of course, I only created a video for the products that actually worked for me.

    Since these products did work for me, by watching and following the video, you will also benefit by seeing a dramatic increase in conversions.

    Then I recommended this product through my own affiliate link. This way I could earn commissions on what others sold. The best way I found to do this was to purchase a meaningful and memorable domain name and redirect the domain to my affiliate link.

    Then overlay that link in the video.

    I usually post my videos on my blogs and send it to my mailing lists to make money. But if you don't have a list, then upload it to YouTube and everal other video sharing sites to make you commissions.

    It's a great technique that's worked for me.
