Make sure your main focus is value. I don’t think I can put enough emphasis on this but seriously, every single time you sit down to write, think value, value and more value. Writing valuable posts simply means solving a problem for your audience with as much information as you can on that topic. Really, the point here is to give your audience something to read that they can learn from.
Assuming you are blogging for more than a hobby, your audience is the most important part of your journey.You are writing for them. So if you want more blog traffic, you have to write about what the people want. This means following trends within your niche. Searching Facebook groups and forums in your niche to understand the struggles people are having or simply their interests.
Get out of your comfort zone and visit other blogs and start networking, commenting and building relationships. The more people see you consistently commenting on their blogs, the more likely they are to come to your blog and check it out and comment. Driving more traffic back to your blog and getting your name out there. This is fantastic for new bloggers. Not only that, getting more comments on your own blog posts in return can help with SEO because Google will begin to notice your blog is more valuable and trustworthy.
Once you get the hang of Pinterest it will continually send you traffic even if you’re away from it for a while because the life of your blog post on Pinterest is tripled that of the life of your posts on social media like Facebook or Instagram. Write a super in-depth/valuable post, create a few template graphics for that post in Canva and post to relevant boards on Pinterest over a few days or weeks (depending on how many boards you have). That’s a really simple way of looking at Pinterest but that’s what it takes.
For new blogs to really grow it’s going to take some time, a little bit of trial and error and a right traffic tool (based on my personal experience I would say Babylon Traffic is the perfect solution). Pick a strategy and stick with it for a few months before changing it.
