Without an audience, there is no way to make money from blogging. And the bigger your audience, the more money you stand to make. That is why it is so important to get your blog out there and on the minds of the public. While there are people you can pay to help drive your blog’s exposure, there are plenty of places you can share your posts for free.
This is so simple; all you need to do it make a Facebook page for your blog and link to it on your actual blog page; your regular readers will then follow you on Facebook and share your posts as you promote them on the platform, allowing you to reach more people.
Build your circles and share your posts. This platform is great for reaching a general audience, but it is also a wonderful networking tool, allowing you to follow other bloggers and for those bloggers to follow you.
To make Pinterest work, all you really need is a nice photo or graphic to go with your post. You can then pin your post and wait for others to re-pin. When a pin really takes off on this platform, it spreads like wildfire; you could easily gain hundreds or even thousands of new followers with a single, successful post.
SlideShare is great for instructional posts or lists and allows you to go heavier on the visuals than the words, which is very much the direction online content is heading in. To help drive traffic back to your blog, use SlideShare as a way of summarizing posts, noting in the slideshow that your audience can learn more by heading on over to your blog.
Reddit isn’t for everyone, but if you know your niche, you can easily reach many others who are interested in your topic. Lurk first to get to know the vibe of the site.
