ways to promote your blog post after publishing
1. Share on Social Media
Sharing your blogs on social media is the first step to take before going further in any advance promotion, it’s something very simple. You can share your blog post immediately after publishing by using the Jetpack plugin, this automatically shares your post on facebook, twitter and linkedin, I’m sure you know about this.
2. Submit to social bookmarks
Submit your blog to social bookmarking sites like stumbleupon, reddit and digg. Though the bounce rate maybe high but you’ll get some amount of readers from social bookmarking sites. You can submit your blog to multiple social bookmarking sites in a short period of time using socialmarker, it rocks.
3. Join the Retweet Club
I’ll recommend Justretweet and easyretweet for this. Here your blog post is going to be retweeted by twitter users making it visible to their followers, this promotes your blog post and makes it go viral in no time. I’m an active member of justretweet and it has really helped my blog by bring some decent amount of readers to my blog.
4. Topic Versus Topic
The competitions on the internet are high nowadays, make a Google search of your topic and you’ll see hundreds of topics related to your that of yours. Now all you have to do is visit those blogs and post an outstanding comment on the blog and no spamming please! This works perfectly on commentluv enabled blog but also works fairly on other blogs too. In your comment, write what you think about the blog post, answer question if possible, then grab the attention of readers by telling them about your latest post and how helpful it’ll be if both ideas are shared together. To make this more easier, you can use Topsy to search for recent blog posts related to yours.
5. Create a thread in a forum
This is another strategy i actually use and enjoy. Join forums in your niche (i prefer warriorforum), create a thread similar to your topic and publish it on forums, remember to include your blog and the title of your blog in your profile’s signature and don’t forget to reply to questions, this will keep the conversation going and at the same time bring visitors to your blog.
