If you have a health blog where you sell any kind of healthcare products such as vegan skincare or even edibles online that you’re looking to monetize – which unless it’s a hobby, you should be looking to monetize it, but often where people go wrong with their blogs is by thinking that all they have to do is keep creating content on their blog and then people will naturally find them. Whilst you definitely should be creating regular content for your blog – otherwise there’s little point in having one, it’s also going to take a really long time for people to notice you if that’s all you’re doing.
The content you create needs to be getting marketed and prmoted as well so that you can drive people back to your blog in order to lead them into your sales funnel and monetize the blog. So, in this post we’re going to share with you some of the best ways to market your blog to get it out there so that you can monetize it properly.
Guest posting is where you’ll leverage other people’s blog audience to gain more traffic back to your own. Guest blogging is a great way to increase your reader base by sharing valuable content on other people’s blogs and it’s something that will have a good impact on both you and their SEO and Google ranking.
If you prefer giving interviews and speaking instead of writing, then appearing on other people’s podcasts where you can share value on the topic of your knowledge is a really great way to get your blog out there and grow your audience. The best way to go about finding podcasts you want to appear on is by looking on places like iTunes and reaching out to people to let them know what you can bring to their audience in terms of value.
If you already have an email list, then you can start reaching out and letting your subscribers know about your blog and even send snippets of your posts in your emails that you can link to the full posts. If you don’t yet have a list, then now is a good time to start building one and letting people know about what you do and how you can help them.
In this day and age we’re very lucky to be able to have so many resources simply at the touch of a button, and one of those resources is social media that allows us to connect with and market to people from all over the world, so if you’re looking to get word out about your health blog, then using social media is absolutely one of the very best ways to do this. You can share your full blog posts on your social media channels or you can simply share snippets that link back to the post.
We hope that this post was helpful in getting you to see the different kinds of marketing strategies that are available to you when it comes to marketing your blog and monetizing it.
