Building an online home business today should include having your own blog. My own blog is set up using WordPress with a static home page.
This means I can continue to blog and add content very easily without my homepage changing. Plus today there are many excellent WordPress themes you can use that do not even look like a blog.
So, whether you are actually blogging, or using a blog as your website, you’re going to need to get traffic to it. Today I am going to talk about five marketing strategies that are working to make money online today.
1. Email marketing.
This is a great way to drive traffic when you have a list. You should always be working on adding new subscribers in numerous ways.
As well as giving good value to the people who subscribe to you, you can also send them offers to your list and make sales. You can also post updates on your blog and refer your list back to those as an easy way to get more traffic.
Search engine optimization is something you want to do with every blog post you make.
Target keyword phrases in the title of the blog post, and in the introduction and closing paragraph. Bold those keywords to give them additional emphasis. Bookmark your blog post using Only Wire and list the title and keywords for the search engines to see.
3. Blog marketing.
You actually need less content when you spend more time marketing the posts you make.
Marketing your blog means getting out on the world wide web where people can find it. Kim Roach made a good post on her blog about marketing your posts with her opinion of the Top 100 Content Marketing Tools:
4. Forum marketing.
This continues to be an excellent traffic generation method.
Making quality posts in discussion forums is a good way to get quality traffic. A good discussion forums such as the Warrior Forum will archive the post and those can be ranked by search engines too.
This is a good way to get traffic as well as meet people online. Many joint ventures have been developed through discussion forums. I also use something called Viral Content Buzz to share my blog posts around.
5. Paid traffic.
Google Adwords is still the king of pay per click advertising. Ezine advertising and MyWizard Ads is a good way to reach a targeted audience without spending alot of money.
We haven’t even talked about social media such as Facebook and You Tube. However, the five ways I have listed are excellent blog marketing strategies to put in your traffic generation mix!
