So you can see how a blog with high quality content can affect your web traffic positively. Don’t forget – it’s not just that high number of articles that did the job for them. Only quantity is never enough. It happened because of large number of blog articles, high quality content, proper blog promotion, and right monitoring & tracking.

Promote Your Blog

Writing quality blog article is not sufficient. ‘If you build, they will come’ doesn’t work in real life. To get your blog articles highlighted, you must reach out to the influencers in your industry. Try to create different visual snippets of your blog for spreading on digital mediums. Each snippet will have its own title, sub-title, image, social proof, customer testimonial etc. Share your blog articles on social media channels. Use email marketing to share your blog with your clients and prospects. Get in touch with people who have shared similar type of content. You can fins such people on Buzzsumo. Try to create a video using your blog article and share it on video marketing platforms. Create a presentation from your blog and share it on Slide Share. Once your deck is uploaded on Slide Share, ensure that it’s optimized for SEO. Focus on its title and description. Slide Share’s transcribe is very helpful in ensuring that your deck content can be crawled by popular search engines. Slide Share presentations, like YouTube videos, often rank very high in search results so you’re giving your content an even better chance of being found.

Engage Influential People in Your Niche

Influencer marketing is getting bigger every day. Influencer marketing and outreach is a powerful way to extend your reach with a target audience without relying on paid media. And people who are missing it, they are losing lots of online traffic on the table. If your content can’t reach your target audience, then it’s useless. There are some marketers who can reach out to target audience after spending lots of paid advertisement. Still, it doesn’t generate desired level of website traffic.

Did you ever think about it?

The one simple reason is – your target audience may read your content but they will not share it. Agree or not – it’s a bitter fact. This especially applies to serious, complex business content. Even if some of them share it, it won’t get you a widespread reach.

Any type of content that is not shared widely, doesn’t fulfill its true purpose. That’s where influencers come into the picture. Because, they are influencers not for nothing. They have got a big number of followers who keep an eye on what is being shared by the influencers. And that’s how your content reach out to the world. But there is a catch.

The influencer in your industry may not like your content though it might be okay for your target audience. There is a difference. Your content should be appealing for the influencers.

How to determine what they like or not?

It’s simple – find out what kind of topics they are writing and sharing online. ‘Buzzsumo’ is my favorite tool to find out the influencers as well current trending topics.
