From funny kid photos to parenting tips to quick and easy dinner recipes, mom blogs are hotter than ever. The mom blog industry is a big one. More and more moms are reading them, and more and more moms are writing them. How do you make yours stand out?
Follow these 5 simple tips to increase your blog’s success.
Join a Mom Blog Forum
This is an excellent way to get out there and not only meet other mom bloggers but get your stuff read. Joining a mom blog forum is kind of like joining a mom gang. Everyone supports each other because everyone wants to be supported. Joining these mom blog forums encourages other forum members to bring traffic to others’ sites and leave comments, which increases your blog’s popularity. Everyone wins!
List Your Blog Link in All Your Social Media Bio’s
Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Twitter, all of them. Don’t be afraid to market yourself! If you want to be successful, you have to be willing to shamelessly advertise once in awhile. Many of these social media platforms even have a website section built into your bio, so all it takes is one click for your visitor to land on your blog.
Ever notice when you create a blog, you see the section on your writing dashboard called “tags”, and you usually just ignore it? Well, don’t! Tags are your friend! This is how Google leads people to you. Remember, tag away! #tagging #is #your #friend
Comment on other Mom Blogs
Visibility is key. The more you are visible to others, the more people are likely to follow you to your blog. Think of it this way: each time you leave a comment on a page or blog, you’re leaving a billboard that is a stamp of your personality. The more conversations you can get into, the better relationships you build, and the more likely people will be to visit your site to get to know you better. So, next time you reach to just “like” something, how about leaving a comment instead? Support breeds support.
Follow Follow Follow
Often when you follow a blog, they often feel inclined to follow you back. This isn’t 100 percent consistent but you will find yourself with a considerable larger amount of followers by following than you will not following at all. One great trick is to go to a large account that has the same niche as you. Follow their followers. If you do a little bit of this every day, then you will see a huge increase in your readership.
Use Instagram To Your Advantage
Instagram is the new blog. Every popular mom blogger has an Instagram these days. Their blog brings people to their Instagram and their Instagram brings people to their blog. A beautiful rhythm back and forth between two very strong platforms. Make sure you apply the same rules with tagging and commenting. Stay in the conversation and be an active user!
