Repurpose Content

You must repurpose your top posts into different types of content. This is only possible if you have a comprehensive understanding of your previous publications and what they offer your audience.

For instance, a blog article can be reused by creating an infographic, a video for YouTube, a podcast, or even a presentation on Powerpoint presentation.

Also, you can use CTAs in your blog article to nudge readers toward becoming leads. You could, for instance, provide a free e-book or an online course where readers can join up.

Repurposing your content will increase interaction and triple blog traffic.

Share on Social Media

You’ve probably heard about marketing on social media before. One of the most effective ways to promote your content will always be to share your blog article on social media.

Of course, you should give your social media accounts some attention and ensure you aren’t always publishing swipe-up links to your content.

Establish a varied social media content calendar instead, and use 3–4 of the posts each month to direct people to a fresh or pertinent blog piece.

Aiming to gain more followers on your social media accounts may eventually lead to those followers becoming naturally intrigued and visiting your blog for themselves, even if a social media post does not specifically reference a blog article.

Try utilizing a social media automation service as well, which will enable you to distribute content and manage all of your social media accounts from a single dashboard.

Guest Post

Guest posting is still one of the most effective marketing strategies available today.

Guest posting requires contacting websites in your niche that are similar to theirs and then pitching them with blog content. This benefits both sides because it provides the blog host with high-quality, unique content and gives you a hyperlink to your own website.

But nonetheless, guest blogging is challenging and time-consuming. In addition to sending outreach emails to the writers in your field, you should take the time to develop exceptional guest blog pieces.

You’ll need to hire freelance writers to help you create the blog post while you perform the outreach if you want to do this on a larger scale.

Reach Out to Influencers

Those with a sizable online following are considered influencers. Influencers can help you advertise your blog to their audiences similarly to traditional celebrity endorsements.

They might link to your blog from the description of their most recent YouTube video or post your articles on social media.

Choosing the right partner is essential for influencer marketing success. Choose an influencer whose followers are relevant to your intended market for the greatest outcomes.

Even though getting caught up in subscriber numbers is simple, you could also want to think about collaborating with a micro-influencer who works in your industry.

This approach will not only enable you to reach a receptive audience, but data reveals that micro-influencers have greater engagement rates.

You can find the ideal influencer partner using relevant hashtags on social media. Alternatively, you might use a network like Fiverr to locate influencers actively searching for collaborators.

Try Paid Marketing

If you have money set up for marketing costs, we strongly advise using some of it for online paid advertising. Paid advertising has a proven track record of success, and with little work on your part, it will bring you a huge amount of visitors.

So let’s examine the many systems you can use for paid marketing campaigns:
