Today is the next post in my blogging series. Learn how to promote your blog and get traffic to your website.
I am back for the next post in my blogging series. If you missed the the first one about how to start a blog you can read it here. Today I am going to be sharing how you can promote your blog.
The key to a profitable blog is to have actual people visit your website. You don’t want just your mom reading your blog :). There are three main ways that I bring traffic to my blog and that is Pinterest, organic search and social.

Carly also has a paid mastermind group on Facebook where she shares all her latest discoveries on Pinterest (and what she’s experiment with). If you want to keep up to date with all the latest Pinterest strategies I highly recommend subscribing to this group. It is a low monthly cost and she takes the guess work out of the constant Pinterest algorithm changes. It also include 10 custom Canva pin template to your mailbox every month. I think the mastermind group alone is worth it but the extra pins are a great bonus. You can join here.
How to Grow on Instagram
Be consistent and show up- This means don’t just post when you feel like it make a schedule and have a plan.
Be social- This means commenting on other people post. And responding to the people that have taken the time to comment on your post.
Post quality content- This is a visual platform, your photos have to be bright and crisp. Your feed should look curated and have the same overall vibe. I love using presets for this.
Show up on stories- Your audience wants to see you. ( I am still working on this)
Make friends- the fastest way to grow is to get support from others doing what you are doing. This means sharing other accounts and teaming up with them to get in front of their audience.
In the next post, I will share what a typical day looks like as a part time blogger.
