Affordable Ways to Grow Your Blog

But do you have to? No; there are plenty of free or affordable ways to grow your blog. Below are just a few that you can put to work for you.

Interact with Readers

This is free and it is vital to growing your blog. Respond to comments, be active on social media, and even comment on other blogs and on forums. The more you are out there and interacting, the more likely you are to get noticed and bring traffic back to your blog.

Use CoSchedule Headline Analyzer

To grab your audience, you need a good headline. But what makes a good headline? CoSchedule will tell you. It will analyze headlines for word balance, headline type, how it previews in searches and email subject lines, sentiment, keywords, and more. And, best of all, it is 100% free.

Try Ninja Outreach to Find Influencers

In terms of growing your blog, outreach is key. But who should you reach out to? And how? Ninja Outreach helps you keep everything organized and uses engagement metrics to help you decide who you should be reaching out to. Plans start at just $19 a month. While it may not be free, it is worth the cost.

Create Visuals with Canva

Canva is a free website and app that allows you to create all sorts of visuals, from Facebook banners to posters and more. It offers enough control that the visuals do not look basic, but keeps things simple enough that you don’t need design training to use it. Some pictures and graphics cost, but they are only $1 each, which means Canva is very affordable.
