Hey! To help you get your questions answered quickly, I created this new mini-post series all about Squarespace and Biz tips. Blogs in the mini-series will be shorter and sometimes related to a Freebie to help you get some answers to your questions.
My crazy idea of blogging five times a week starting in January.
The results are fantastic, but I will go back to blogging twice a week in April. The experience was terrific, but it was a lot of work.
However, I received questions about how I get traffic on my Blog. Here are some strategies:
Add social sharing buttons
Include social sharing buttons at the top and bottom of your blog posts, and your readers will spread the word.
Keywords are at the heart of SEO! One of the easiest ways to generate more website traffic is to ensure every page has a keyword strategy. Keyword helps Google understand what that page is about, which leads to more traffic from the search engines.
When you mention another company’s product or service in a blog post, include a link to that company’s page. Not only does Google like to see outbound links on your site, readers appreciate it when you provide other resources.
Pick a niche
Decide who your target audience is (your ICA – Ideal Customer Avatar), what they want to read or learn, and what specific messages you want to convey. If you try to reach everyone, you will reach no one!
Use social media and promote
Each time you write a post, share it across your social media networks. If you engage with your audience and share great content, your social media sites can become some of your top traffic sources.
If you have money to invest, you can invest in promotion. My audience spends time on Instagram, and I invest in sponsored posts. For as little as $5 per day, you can boost a post and increase its reach significantly.
