Hello lovely WA community,

What do you think of these blog promotion sites?
1. Flipboard
2. Medium
3. Getpocket

Are they as good as those in FB groups, Instagram, Pinterest etc?
I like to further explore to have more readers discover my blog.

Thank you for answering,
Joe

Hi Joe,

There are always many platforms which look promising for promoting your work or attracting new clients but if you want to sell from your website find out where your clients are coming from then build your followers on those platforms.

The easiest way to attract visitors to your blogs is to become known at the expert in the field. It takes time, there are no shortcuts just be patient and build your brand and traffic will come automatically and it will be the right type of traffic for you and your business.

Wonderful, I do agree with you, Karen.
At the moment, I'm slowly seeing progress in terms of traffic from Pinterest and Twitter.
These are the two platforms that I'm more concentrating on, with daily postings.

HI Joe,
I haven't looked into adding any blog content to those websites. However I am a user of Medium and Getpocket.
From what Philmedia says below it sounds as though for Medium that you don't get to link to your website.
Do you get backlinks or direct link to your website from using GetPocket?

I would only consider any that you can get links to your website, that is what brings you traffic. If your content stays on Medium or Getpocket then all you are doing it putting your time and effort into another 3rd party website.

I hear very good things about Quora and Reddit to bring traffic to your website. So I suggest having a look at spending time in there to bring traffic to your website.

It will be a case of spending your time in the most effective ways to bring the most traffic to your website.
I do like your other suggestions:
1. FB groups, Instagram, Pinterest
2. Then perhaps trial Quora and Reddit
3. Then your 3 ideas but only if you can get links to your website.

You will be able to monitor traffic sources using Google analytics.

I hope this helps, John

Hi John

I agree with Quora and Reddit as more beneficial for our blogs.

Totally, I agree with you i.e. finding target audience hangout and focus on those channels.

Thank you for your notes.

Thank you, John.
I'd been using Quora for a few months, and it seems good for me, also I'm trying to be active by answering some reader's questions which is related to my niche. Interesting platform.
I have yet signed up for Reddit, I think I should too.

Sounds great Joe, I hear a lot of good things and people getting good traffic from Quora and Reddit.
Personally I also use these, but would like to post on both more.
Cheers John

Medium is great, but you still have to produce lots of content to be paid. So it depends where you want to spend your time. You could make a full time living out of medium in theory, but you don't own the site.

Plus, you only earn from members reading.

Could we make more of the WA blog here as it ranks well, but people use it as an internal communications notice board?

And I get that. But!

Interesting discussion.

I’ve seen medium pop up a few times now, but probably have enough to do on my normal sites.
Thanks
