If you’re at a blogging conference in particular, it’s highly acceptable to let people know that you founded yourdomain.com, a blog that helps people learn more about your subject matter. Even if you have a day job that you need to promote, your elevator pitch is that you are a [your job title], and you also run yourdomain.com, a blog that helps people learn more about your subject matter.

      ·         Create a Feedburner  account
Feedburner is a service owned by Google that allows you to track the number of subscribers to your RSS feed. Use it to offer your blog visitors a way to subscribe to your blog in their favorite RSS reader such as feedly.

      ·         Optimize your blog for search

To stay on Google’s good side, avoid overstuffing your blog with keywords. Choose one keyword phrase to optimize on each page and post. Include it in your SEO title, Meta description and inside the Alt text (alternative text) of the image on the page.

      ·         Try blog promotion networks
Several networks exist solely for the purpose of gathering people who love to help each other promote their blog posts. These networks include Triberr, Social Buzz Club and Viral Content Buzz. You can also build your own blog post promotional network as you network with others in your niche. Just have everyone connect in a Facebook group or in an email list where they can share their latest posts.

      ·         Establish yourself on social media

Never forget, though, that social media (aside from paid advertising) is a place to connect with others, be helpful to them and display your expertise. Don’t hop in with a megaphone and act like a barker at a circus. Rather, treat social media like a huge cocktail party—a place where you can meet others, trade ideas and network to form alliances. Treat everyone you meet with respect. Your aim is to be of value and engage with your current or future blog readers.
