Blog Post Promotion Checklist
So you have just finished writing your new blog posts and you are quite satisfied with it, because you have written a “master piece” and can’t wait for people to read it and leave their feedback. After all, you wrote an article for “like minded individuals” to appreciate, and for that you are excited about it. Granted, that’s the main objective of every blog post, to write for “humans” first and ultimately optimize for search engines.
Sadly, it appears that some people still don’t understand that writing quality content alone, is not enough, and in order for people to appreciate what you have to offer, they obviously must know that it exists, or simply put, your content should be found. This is particularly true, if you don’t have an established audience yet. For those that do have a readers base already, it is still advisable to “promote” your new blog posts as much as possible, always in accordance with the best and ethical practices. And BTW, your blog post is a blog post, regardless where it is published. I am telling you this because, these tips also applies for your guest posts. Don’t ever forget that. It is only good for all parties involved and also makes you look good in the eyes of the blog owner.
