Build a Better Blog: Promote a Blog Post

I can’t believe it’s FRIDAY ALREADY!  This is why I could never keep up with the 31 days format!!!  At any rate, here is this week’s task: Promote a Blog Post

Here’s what Darren has to say:

“Most bloggers have tried blog promotion in various ways. One mistake I see a lot of bloggers making in their attempts to find new readers is how they only ever promote their blog as a whole. Their promotion is all about driving traffic to their blog’s home page URL. While there’s nothing wrong with this, I’ve had A LOT more success in promoting individual posts than my blog’s front page. That’s what we are going to do today.”

Check out the workbook on 11 ways to promote.  I challenge you to try at least 3 ways and let me know how it went in the comments!

I think I’ll try Social Messaging (Facebook/Twitter), Social Bookmarking, and Email Signature.  I’ll keep you posted!
