The web was not made for static, text-only content! Readers appreciate links, as do other bloggers, site owners and even search engines. When you reference your own material in-context and in a way that's not manipulative (watch out for over-optimizing by linking to a category, post or page every time a phrase is used - this is almost certainly discounted by search engines and looks terrible to those who want to read your posts), you potentially draw visitors to your other content AND give search engines a nice signal about those previous posts.
On my way to post this comment, I encountered way down a very long, long line of commenters, people who have expressed reactions about this blog. I said to myself these people have same or similar concern with me. But 2 issues almost prevented me from taking advantage of this article, first; the comments were most dated 4 or 3 years ago and the least was 2 years ago, second; I was made to register and verify my email. I pause for a golden second and finally decided to avail the substance of this blog, hoping I can derive some pinches of benefits to invite people to visit my blogs. Good day to everyone and to those who came and posted ahead of me.
I've been reading a few articles on how to drive traffic to my blog and this is extremely helpful. I especially like the final tip about not giving up- there does seem to be a high attrition rate for new bloggers and I'm feeling like I might be among them. Your post has given me new energy and resolve and I'll be implementing quite a few of these strategies. Thanks!!

Advertisers on Madison Avenue have spent billions researching and determining where consumers with various characteristics gather and what they spend their time doing so they can better target their messages. They do it because reaching a group of 65+ year old women with commercials for extreme sports equipment is known to be a waste of money, while reaching an 18-30 year old male demographic that attends rock-climbing gyms is likely to have a much higher ROI.

A key objective is engaging digital marketing customers and allowing them to interact with the brand through servicing and delivery of digital media. Information is easy to access at a fast rate through the use of digital communications. Users with access to the Internet can use many digital mediums, such as Facebook, YouTube, Forums, and Email etc. Through Digital communications it creates a multi-communication channel where information can be quickly shared around the world by anyone without any regard to who they are.[30] Social segregation plays no part through social mediums due to lack of face to face communication and information being wide spread instead to a selective audience. This interactive nature allows consumers create conversation in which the targeted audience is able to ask questions about the brand and get familiar with it which traditional forms of Marketing may not offer.[31]


It may seem a bit overwhelming to think about teaching an online course if you’ve never done it before, but you can boil this down to one simple question: what does your audience already want to know? Tackle it from the same angle as any of your articles, comments, or blog content by providing useful and in-depth content that your audience wants in the form of videos, written lectures and interviews with thought leaders in the space.
Next, you can start driving traffic to your website by promoting your eBook to your followers on social media, tapping into existing partners you’ve connected with, writing about it in a guest post—and giving your eBook away as an incentive to people who sign up on your email list. The right eBook on a killer topic within your niche can become a massive tool to drive traffic to your blog by word-of-mouth from readers that get a lot of value from your free book. While promoting a free eBook is a proven way to drive traffic, if you choose to employ one of the best CRMs for small business and get serious about selling additional books (or courses), then you even start monetizing your blog if your free readers are ready to upgrade to paid products.
7. Techniques of contrast, perspective and colors for the design appropriate to the meaning of the subjects. You do not have to be an artist in order to be able to use their effects in general. Contrasts create a realistic impression and any perspective promises a future. Hot colours from red to yellow are attractive and giving a welcome to the visitors, but also give an impression of restlessness. Green is “the perfect” color – it expresses positive emotions like stillness, hope… Opposite colors like yellow and purple, green and red or blue and orange give meaning of difference. When colors are similar (like yellow, orange, pink, red) they give meaning of diversity. These three general techniques of contrast, perspective and colours can combine in many different ways in order to correspond to the texts. The combination between these techniques and the meaning creates a strong harmony.
As mentioned earlier, technology and the internet allows for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service for customers as well as enabling them to shop online at any hour of that day or night, not just when the shops are over and across the whole world. This is a huge advantage for retailers to use it and direct customers from the store to its online store. It has also opened up an opportunity for companies to only be online based rather than having an outlet or store due to the popularity and capabilities of digital marketing.
An omni-channel approach not only benefits consumers but also benefits business bottom line: Research suggests that customers spend more than double when purchasing through an omni-channel retailer as opposed to a single-channel retailer, and are often more loyal. This could be due to the ease of purchase and the wider availability of products.[26]
I have noticed that we get some incredible traffic for series of blog posts and the posts which answer really specific questions. I know this wasn't about content planning but honesty believe that making a schedule and focusing in on a topic of the month is a great way to break budding bloggers into the habit of posting regularly with focussed material.
All great tips, especially integrating SEO and keyword research into each post.  In order for a post to be valuable and generate traffic long term it needs to be optimized.  This includes the title, body content, and a customized URL that includes keywords.  This will continue to drive traffic to the blog into the future, and beyond a few days when it is heavily promoted. 

A generation ago, consumers were at the mercy of advertisers who spoon-fed them marketing messages across a few media channels: print, billboards, television, radio. These advertisers created markets, defining and reinforcing consumer stereotypes. In the 1950s, advertising was primarily a one-way conversation with a captive audience. TV advertising grew and matured into a viable marketing medium. Experts were the style makers.
The major social networking sites aren't alone in their power to send traffic to a blog. Social community sites like Reddit (which now receives more than 2 billion! with a "B"! views each month), StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Tumblr, Care2 (for nonprofits and causes), GoodReads (books), Ravelry (knitting), Newsvine (news/politics) and many, many more (Wikipedia maintains a decent, though not comprehensive list here).

The fact that I am having heart palpitations as I am reading this shows that I have a lot to learn. I have the content and the passion, but I feel like I am trying to teach myself a whole new field of study here! Thanks so much for this helpful guide. I am bookmarking this & will go through step by step as I build my blog (probably over the next 2 years!). Hopefully by then this won't feel like a foreign language to me.


I had just launched my mobile app product online last May 27 and had a few downloads. I created social media accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Youtube (for the video demos), and blogspot (I haven't created Wordpress and don't have my own domain for the product yet but I am planning to have them in the future). After a while the downloads ceased. I post content on my blogspot and researched a bit on using tools like hootsuite, twitterfeed so that I can somehow automate spreading my posts on my blog to my social media contents. I have received a few followers in Twitter. I am moving on to making Screencast now instead of recording my smartphone itself while doing video demos. My blogspot stats show some views probably I had 20 views for a few days on the recent content I made. My app's free version received a few more downloads for a few days.After my little journey on marketing my app (I really don't have any marketing skills since I am a software developer but I have always been fascinated and interested in doing marketing) I realized after reading this post that my efforst and the little journey I had is very little and just the beginning. The detailed approach of this blog really made me realize and opened my eyes to the things I still need to do to succeed in my marketing efforts. This blog made me inspired again to continue my marketing efforts. It was put up in such a detailed yet catchy and interesting way that gave me new zest in doing my marketing after an initial so-so results of my efforts. I realized there is so much more effort I have to give to marketing my product but this blog post gave me a very clear path and direction to take on my marketing journey. Thank you very much for this wonderful post. I salute you and you will always be an inspiration to me in my marketing journey. 

Influencer marketing: Important nodes are identified within related communities, known as influencers. This is becoming an important concept in digital targeting. It is possible to reach influencers via paid advertising, such as Facebook Advertising or Google Adwords campaigns, or through sophisticated sCRM (social customer relationship management) software, such as SAP C4C, Microsoft Dynamics, Sage CRM and Salesforce CRM. Many universities now focus, at Masters level, on engagement strategies for influencers.


The "sharing economy" refers to an economic pattern that aims to obtain a resource that is not fully utilized.[73] Nowadays, the sharing economy has had an unimagined effect on many traditional elements including labor, industry, and distribution system.[73] This effect is not negligible that some industries are obviously under threat.[73][74] The sharing economy is influencing the traditional marketing channels by changing the nature of some specific concept including ownership, assets, and recruitment.[74]
It is increasingly advantageous for companies to use social media platforms to connect with their customers and create these dialogues and discussions. The potential reach of social media is indicated by the fact that in 2015, each month the Facebook app had more than 126 million average unique users and YouTube had over 97 million average unique users.[29]

Video Marketing: YouTube has become the second most popular search engine and a lot of users are turning to YouTube before they make a buying decision, to learn something or just to relax. There are several video marketing platforms, including Facebook Videos, Instagram, Vimeo to use to run a video marketing campaign. Companies find the most success with video by integrating it with SEO, content marketing, and social media marketing campaigns.
Balancing search and display for digital display ads are important; marketers tend to look at the last search and attribute all of the effectiveness to this. This then disregards other marketing efforts, which establish brand value within the consumers mind. ComScore determined through drawing on data online, produced by over one hundred multichannel retailers that digital display marketing poses strengths when compared with or positioned alongside, paid search (Whiteside, 2016).[43] This is why it is advised that when someone clicks on a display ad the company opens a landing page, not its home page. A landing page typically has something to draw the customer in to search beyond this page. Things such as free offers that the consumer can obtain through giving the company contact information so that they can use retargeting communication strategies (Square2Marketing, 2012).[44] Commonly marketers see increased sales among people exposed to a search ad. But the fact of how many people you can reach with a display campaign compared to a search campaign should be considered. Multichannel retailers have an increased reach if the display is considered in synergy with search campaigns. Overall both search and display aspects are valued as display campaigns build awareness for the brand so that more people are likely to click on these digital ads when running a search campaign (Whiteside, 2016).[43]
Digital marketing planning is a term used in marketing management. It describes the first stage of forming a digital marketing strategy for the wider digital marketing system. The difference between digital and traditional marketing planning is that it uses digitally based communication tools and technology such as Social, Web, Mobile, Scannable Surface.[58][59] Nevertheless, both are aligned with the vision, the mission of the company and the overarching business strategy.[60]
