After you publish your post, don’t forget to be social! Share your work. Post on Facebook, Pinterest, and more. This is one of the fastest ways to have your blog post spread across the web like wildfire. You can set up a posting schedule with an editorial calendar, like the one Coschedule offers.
Join share groups! There are a ton available on social media, especially Facebook and Pinterest. Spend 10 minutes of your day in share groups and be rewarded with MASSIVE TRAFFIC! Some of my favorite Facebook share groups are:
- Pinning Ain’t Easy
- Show Your Blog Love
- Blog + Biz BFFS
- My Pro Blog + Biz
- Instaloops + Blog Giveaways
- Blogging Boost

You can work with companies like Adroll or run ads yourself, with Google Adwords, Pinterest ads, and more. Get really super targeted audiences with Facebook ads to blow your traffic out of the water!
CREATE A GIVEAWAY OR CONTEST
Nothing stirs up engagement like a good contest. Post the contest on your blog, promote it, spread the word, collect entries, and watch your traffic numbers grow! For a bigger boost in traffic, collaborate with other bloggers. The larger the group, the more traffic.
BE SEEN WHERE YOUR AUDIENCE HANGS OUT
Join a forum related to your niche and be active. Create a signature with your blog url and you’re all set.
OPTIMIZE YOUR POSTS
Make sure your blog posts are well crafted, error-free, epic writings. Do keyword planning, insert tons of relevant graphics, and make sure it’s SEO friendly, I recommend the Yoast WordPress plugin to help streamline most of these tasks.
