Engelta loves to share financial tips and tricks to help anyone grow their own business.

Once you create your kind of blog you will want to spread the word, maybe not for the people who know you in the real life, but for others, for the whole world. You want them to listen to you, write to you, and share their experiences and ideas. But how do you do that? With the right blog marketing!

To reach at the point where you do not do any mistakes, and the followers keep coming is quite impossible. You can't make it overnight as well. You have to work on your blog, and on sharing it with the world. You have to literally use every single mean that you have to push your blog out there. You won't need a degree on marketing, or else. All you need is ideas, and good social media connection, and even these do not happen overnight; and of course, keep doing mistakes, because you can't learn any other way.

You can always start by following people on instagram, twitter, facebook, google plus, and wherever you have an account on which you are active and do post all the time, or at least log in once a day. When you follow people be careful to not spam, and also keep in mind that you do not need to follow as many accounts as you physically and possibly can. You need to follow those accounts that post for the same things you do, you have to be in the same niche. So you can gain their followers, you can make their readers, and those bloggers read you too. If you follow bloggers just for the sake of it, you won't get much, and you will need much time.

Second thing you can get advantage of: hashtags. Check on your google analytics, your instagram, and twitter account, to find out about the hashtags people are using, the events they are going, or the social things they discuss about. Be a part of that, become a part of that community.

Third thing to get you noticed in no matter of time: comment on other bloggers blogs. It does not matter if you leave nice or bad comments, it matters more that you put arguments on those comments and not hate words, while you keep showing that you read their post carefully and you really feel like leaving that comment. Readers will come to your blog.

Social Media Platforms, is not only TikTok out there!

At some point through your blogging the real question arises: How can I drive real traffic to my website? The answer is: take advantage of the websites that offer you that kind of advertising you need.

I guess you are familiar with promoting on Facebook, or Instagram, but there are some others sites too, which may not sound well known to you, but they certainly do their job.

There are these sites like Blogger, or Google plus which are very useful because the moment you share your article or photo or whatever, the sites share it with every possible person [your follower or not] who is procrastinating on their site. You do not only get readers, you may get new followers.

Then, it is Pinterest a site of only photo sharing. But these photos may attract people, may promote your website, may contain infographics and even be attached to a certain link that leads to your website. That means only more readers and views for you.

Twitter Hashtags are another way to share with the world what you know and what you want to see. You can have a look at Twitter trends hashtags for a better idea on which topic is the most discussed on Twitter.

Snapchat which seems much like Instagram, it is also about photo sharing. The thing here is that Snapchat is more used for business purposes, so it is great to promote your business. Then you have Tumblr, a photo sharing site, when you create your own blog to save the photo there, you get followers, and you can even put adverts on your tumblr blog.

These are the sites, completely free, that can help promoting and drive traffic to your website in the mean time.

You can earn online by using sites that offer you affiliate links so you can incorporate them in your blog. This is called: affiliate marketing. For the moment I am only using Skimlinks. I have tried creating the Viglink affiliate marketing, but I was not quite satisfied with it, so I changed up to Skimlinks. Although it is not easy to build a good income by using affiliate links, it is do-able. The thing is: you will have to spend a lot of time on building a valuable traffic on your blog before using affiliate links. More readers mean more links clicking, and that means more income for you. My advice would be to build your blog, start posting, build an audience, then try your hand in affiliate marketing.

Other ways to get website traffic in 5 easy steps.

You write articles nearly everyday and accompany them with great photos, but you are not getting traffic. You want to find out what you are doing wrong, because, who would not love to read your articles? Maybe you are not reaching them, or maybe your readers are not loyal. Make a change, and get more traffic to your blog and posts. Find out what are you missing in these 5 steps.

1. Create articles that are easy to read - do not use too much metaphors of phrasal expressions. Be simple.

2. Create a feeling of getting smarter, stronger, better - everybody loves to learn something new that will help him/her to grow in his/her most beautiful self.

3. Create long quality posts - if you can. If you can't write long articles because you don't have that much to share, or you don't have much information, write it short. Quality comes first.

4. Be consistent! - write whenever you can, whenever you are inspired, whenever you feel like writing. If you don't have something to say, do not push yourself into writing something because you will lose in quality. If you have written an article that day, but you have another great idea, you can always write the article and put an automatic self-publishing date.

5. Learn about SEO - the new marketing technique that will get your word out there.

These are my tips and tricks, and online communities I interact with, to help get my word out there by growing my blog.

Track your traffic.

In this case Google Analytics comes on hands. It can help you check out the graphic of page views on one day, last week, last month, and the total number of views. It provides you with an accurate list of where your traffic comes from, and how much money did you make in a certain day, if you, of course, have put Google Adverts, or other adverts, on your website.

The last thing you need to certainly do, is to check out when do your site get the most traffic, and when do others sites you promote your website have the biggest traffic.

For example, Twitter has its pick hour from 3pm to 5pm, Facebook drives more traffic from 10pm to 12pm, while Pinterest is all about the lunch hour 12pm to 3pm. In order to get an accurate calculation of when these sites, others, and your website, get the most traffic, you need to check out your country clock. Most of the graphics are based on US time, or sometimes even UK, but you have to be sure. The most traffic hour is the secret weapon when it comes to driving traffic to your website easily and without working too hard on reaching the page views you are longing for.
