If you want to be a successful blogger, Youtube influencer, really it doesn’t matter if you are trying to grow your blog online in 2020, you have got your work cut out for you and I know it’s so easy to look at those successful influencers right now and think that they’re an overnight success that it came easy to them and if you just put in a couple months worth of work you’re going to be that successful but the truth is it often takes people a lot of years and a lot a hard work to grow their brand online to get that large following.
So let’s talk about how you can cut through the noise, how your content can be found because there are so many content creators here online trying to be found just like you so how can you be found and how can you grow your blog online? I really want to talk about what made the biggest difference for me when it came to growing my blog so if you are ready to get started let’s just go ahead and get into it.
Some tools that are necessarily important for you are
- Pinterest: my best and my biggest platform is Pinterest. Pinterest is very unique in that the Pins can drive traffic back to your website/ blog/youtube channel as the case may be which can help to grow your blog online and I have to say on all of those platforms I had to start from zero, I started from the bottom and I worked my way up. I really wish that I had these tips to make a big difference and propel my blog in the right direction a lot sooner that I did.
- Facebook: Facebook is the biggest social media platform today that can help you grow your blog faster, you already know that. With facebook, you can make post and include links back to your website/blog. You can also post on your blog and share directly to facebook. If you use popular content management systems such as WordPress, they easily help you with plugins to do this.
- Canva: Canva has been a very helpful tool to create stunning designs that you can post on facebook, instagram or Pinterest to help drive your traffic. With thousands of templates to work with, the job is really easy.
WHAT’S YOUR CONTENT NICHE?
Let’s start by talking about content because that’s really how you’re going to grow your blog online and be found, that’s really how you’re going to grow your audience and the first type I’ll give you guys is to create more content. When I first got started with my blog I was only launching one blog post a week and I was sharing a few Instagram photos a week and that was it, but today that has changed and the numbers are definitely showing for it. I honestly believe that quantity is better than quality, if you want to be a successful blogger you can’t worry about creating the best content from the very beginning because your first 100 posts or videos are going to be crap you’re not
It is also important to understand what your audience is searching for and the right keyword phrase to include within your content to make sure that you are found, but beyond keyword research I really had to step into my audiences shoes and think about what they are searching for what are some beginner. if you’re a blogger launching those blog posts every single week, those are the tasks that you need to do just to keep your brand alive, those are not the tasks that are actually going to grow your brand so when you over serve the time to work on those, start thinking of the bigger picture, things that are actually going to push your blog and brand forward just like those collaborations. That’s not a typical thing that you need to maintain your blog but it’s something that you need to grow your blog so when you reserve time for those projects as growth you are actually going to see
Lastly, you need to join facebook groups, you need to interact with more people on Instagram but for me honestly what I learned is how to bed manage my time and feed my days to be as productive as possible. I was able to get the stuff done that I needed to do just to grow my blog online, I was also able to get it done so much faster and reserve time for those future projects and for that marketing and for that automation. You need to then start creating PAID PRODUCTS which will ultimately make you more money. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER.
