Here Are five Social Media Marketing Strategies That Will Help You Spread the Word About Your Blog
Do you invest significant time and effort into creating excellent blog posts? Are you making the most of your content marketing’s potential? Otherwise, you might not be promoting your material properly.

Paid advertisements make little sense to promote a personal blog, in contrast to commercial sites. Okay, but what other choices do you have?

Of course, you need to use search engine optimization and social media marketing.

Since we’ve already covered search engine optimization (SEO) for blogs, in this piece we’ll focus on promoting your blog using social media.

Examine the perceptions of webmasters, marketers, and bloggers with regards to blog promotion via social media by conducting a poll. Most people would understand this to imply publishing your blog on social media profiles and pages like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google+. Doing so, however, is only the beginning of the struggle.

Below are some tips for making your blog entries more shareable and several alternative social media sites to the more common Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

1. Content That Is Interesting, Useful, Or Shocking

This isn’t a social media marketing-specific piece of advice, but it is the foundational first step that lays the groundwork for everything else you’ll read about today.

Your social media followers care most about how they come across to their friends and followers. That is to say, they won’t just publish everything they find online.

Your material, then, needs to be engaging and informative, with information that can’t be obtained anyplace else. Content that can be accessed elsewhere on the web must be presented in a way that interests your social media-savvy audience.
The second tip is to include social networks into your blog. This means providing easy access to your material from the most popular social media platforms. Individuals who visit you blog should be able to easily follow you and share your posts using the social media features you’ve included on your site.

Social media buttons (like and follow) that encourage readers to interact with your blog, share buttons that encourage readers to spread the word about your content, social networking logins that facilitate comments, and so on are all examples of such integrating features.

Some quick advice on including share buttons for various social media platforms follows.

Some blogs overdo it by including a dozen or more social sharing buttons. You need a sizable social media following (beyond the norm of Twitter and Facebook) to justify the inclusion of a share button.

If your social network share buttons look cluttered, your readers may be put off and you may see a drop in social shares as a result. You should also avoid bloating your page with too many social media widgets.
Third, promote your blog on your various social media accounts.
If people aren’t visiting your site, you should seek them out. Utilize as many platforms on social media as you can to spread your blog entries. As this is not exactly a feat of scientific genius, you are likely already doing it.

2.Consistency

Maintain a regular posting schedule. Don’t give them all away in one week and then disappear for another. Scheduling solutions like Hootsuite and SproutSocial can help you post to your social media accounts on a regular basis.

3.When To Put Up Your Content For Maximum Views

If you’re using Twitter to promote a blog article, you may want to use Tweroid to determine when it’s best to make your updates. It’s a fantastic free marketing tool for Twitter and one of the best available. Use Facebook’s own analytics tool, Facebook Insights, to determine the best times to make posts.

In order to make social media posting on Twitter easier and more productive, the tools buffer and followerwonk were linked to create a scheduling tool that also provides ideal user-activity time for Twitter.

Appearance-Based Interest In Latest Posts

Share blog posts on social media by adding your own personal message to the post’s share page on Facebook, LinkedIn, or a Google+ page. Don’t forget to provide an accompanying photo, as many sites (including Google+ and LinkedIn) will showcase a thumbnail of the image in your post.
Promotions in the Forum
If you haven’t been actively participating in the forum and answering members’ questions, you probably won’t be allowed to post a link to your website there. This social media blog marketing plan is only useful if you plan to actively participate in relevant online communities.

Type “industry + forum” into Google and hit enter to find forums related to your niche. As an illustration, consider the hybrid of a cuisine blog and a discussion board. Additionally, there is the forum-specific search engine Boardreader.

4. Participate In Online Groups

Join LinkedIn and Facebook groups discussing topics related to your business. If you want to raise your profile and that of your blog, these are the places to do it. Instead of pushing your blog in people’s faces, you may ease into it by participating in discussions and answering questions, just as you would in a forum. In the future, you may be able to send out links to individual blog entries.

5.Disseminate Snippets Of Your Content

Do you recall hearing about a plugin called “clicktotweet”? In your blog posts, you often include quotable passages with a “click to tweet” button.

You don’t have to rely solely on the clicktotweet plugin; instead, you can update your social media profiles with relevant passages from your post. Including backlinks to your site is optional in such comments. Your loyal audience may appreciate the novel twist on the usual status updates if you did this.

Some short tips for boosting your blog’s visibility on social networking. Promotions on social media may be entertaining, and the outcomes are well worth the effort. Social media signals are an additional way to improve your blog’s SEO.
