Welcome to Get Started Blogging day 6!

Get Started Blogging Day 6: How to gain more traffic and a loyal fan base. 

You don’t need a ton of views to make money blogging. A good example of this is with affiliate marketing. However, you’ll want more visitors if you want to increase your income. You’ll need more traffic and a fan base. There are several ways to make this happen:

  1. Publish great blog posts – They should be a minimum of 500 words but some people state that longer is better for Google, say 1,500 or 2,000 words.

  2. Be active on Pinterest – Use Tailwind and make sure you stick with scheduling your own and other content, and join Tribes.

  3. Stay active on other social media– This includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, and others.

  4. Post on a regular basis– Most people say at least once a week. This Summer, I’m posting every day and seeing growth.

  5. Network– When you share another bloggers content, tag them.

  6. Guest post – If you are a blogger you are also a writer, you should pitch everywhere you can!

  7. Make sure it’s easy to share your content – Have share buttons.

  8. Create catchy headlines – Don’t go all out clickbait but make them interesting.

  9. Learn SEO – SEO (search engine optimization) is important and you should learn more about it as you continue your blogging journey. Keywords are important.

  10. Make it easy for readers to browse – Interlink between posts on your blog so readers can keep reading

If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, I created a tutorial that will help you, How to Start a Blog. If you are asking yourself “Can you seriously make money blogging?” My main tip is to be self-hosted. This is essential if you want to monetize your blog. It also makes you look more professional to companies you will partner with. Blogging income won’t happen unless you are self-hosted. You can pick from any of these links: Bluehost, HostGator, or SiteGround.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s email for miscellaneous blogging tips to help you on your journey.
