3 Ways to Achieve Explosive Blog Growth

SocialMedia Examiner mascot

Blog growth is not easy. The last three months I’ve blogged dayli and blogged a lot. I’ve used twitter to publish the post, and got good help from @revaliente and others. Still, iakttakelser.com isn’t exploding. I now see 7 thousand clicks a month. That’s 35 times before these three months. Ok, ok, it’s almost explosive. But I want to make it even better. And Steizner seems to know whole lot in this matter. Read the whole blog post of Michael Stelzner from SocialMedia Examiner. Here are cuts from some paragraphs:

#1: It’s All About Community

In the beginning, we had the mistaken notion that all that mattered was great content.  Don’t get me wrong, content is essential and always will be (see Tip #2).
Things really took off the moment we integrated our Facebook page into our blog.  Almost overnight, what I call “lurkers” (those people who read but don’t interact), came forward en masse…

#2: Great Content Is Essential

I believe outstanding content is essential to ongoing growth.  But great content tied to a great community is the key to explosive results.  In the beginning, you might need to get your great content on someone else’s platform to ultimately grow your own…

#3: Go Beyond Just Text and Pictures

Great content doesn’t need to be limited to the written word.  We discovered that there are plenty of people who prefer to learn by watching or listening.  Try mixing up your media.
From the beginning we invested in video.  We took a camera crew with us to major trade shows and interviewed experts from big brands like Starbucks

One thought on “3 Ways to Achieve Explosive Blog Growth

  1. 35 times up seems explosive indeed. Obviously there must have been some correct moves. Content, yes, but what is it really? Pictures and videos, great, cause it is the most convenient way of receiving the info. But still, the info (or "content") will be the crucial thing also in the future….I think. I wish you good luck.
