How to grow your blog successfully in 2020 –
This morning I woke up to a message from a friend who said: ‘who reads your blog? Like seriously, do people follow you there?’ It sounds like a complete judgment and it made me feel like I had to protect my work. Standing up for myself. I have been waiting nervously for the traffic and income to increase for more than two years. Creating a blog was one big step, getting readers was a whole other challenge. This message came in hard, but it also inspired me to share my tips and tricks to grow a blog-following in 2020.
‘Blogging is overrated’
‘The work is not worth it’
‘It is to late to start’
‘Nobody is going to notice’
Twitter is your best friend if you want to grow your blog! A lot of people forget about this amazing app that allows you to build up relationships with your following. Lately, I found out that there are groups of bloggers supporting each other there. Share your own links and see what happens! There are also support groups that you can join on twitter, to get fully into the blogging community.
Start a support group
You can start your own support group! Find a subject that suits your interests to build a community. There are a few websites where you can find groups if you do not feel like starting your own. For example, there are Yahoo Support Groups. It is a great way to start interacting more with people online. You need to forget about Instagram, you can build a community literally anywhere! Combine your channels together, Instagram, Facebook, etc to grow your blog in 2020. There is always room for more.
Talk to your audience
You may have a small group of subscribers, they receive an email from you whenever you post a new blog post. Next to your blog, your email list is going to be the most important asset you have in your marketing arsenal to grow your blog—in terms of traffic and revenue. By building a mailing list with engaging readers and subscribers you can grow your blog audience. In this way, you can build a group of followers together and you do not have to worry about any algorithm. Grap an empty paper and start writing down your email ideas!
Email is not only the best way to consistently bring visitors and readers back to your blog—it’ll also be your primary method for reaching out and communicating with your audience on a personal level. You can also think about a newsletter, for example. Good luck!
The last important thing when it comes to blogging is: invest. That means that you have to invest your money and time into this. It takes a lot of effort to make your own blog your business these days. As there are so many out there, but it is still possible to grow your blog in 2020! I always highly believe in the fact that your dreams can come trough, you just have to want it enough to start receiving it!
To conclude, there are many ways to grow your blog and audience. You just have to find the right ones. I have to say, not all the methods work for everyone, see what you like and just try it out. These where all my tips and tricks on how to grow your blog in 2020 I hope this helps! Talk to you soon x!
