Blog Networking Tips
Networking, networking, networking! I can’t stress how important networking among other bloggers is for anyone starting a blog. Reach out to veteran bloggers. Let them know you are just starting out and are looking to increase your following. Many won’t respond, but if you keep trying one will offer their advice. It really is amazing how supportive other bloggers can be offering blog networking tips.
I was lucky enough to contact the right blogger that invited me to a private facebook group. It was a large group of bloggers that held a giveaway every week. The group administrators acquired the giveaway sponsor so it did not cost me a dime out of my own pocket. Along with the other members, I was responsible for promoting the weekly giveaways. The first week I joined I increased my Facebook fan page by over 2,000 fans. Amazing, right?
I continued to stay with the group for several months, but I was not gaining any new followers from the group. As my traffic and fan base grew, I felt like it was time to expand my networking group. I decided to join other groups with different bloggers in each group. You need to network among various groups to keep gaining new fans and new visitors to your website.
