Promoting Your Blog

Kiruba Shankar has some suggestions:

1) Get your own domain.
Kick out the secondary blog addresses like Buy your own domain. Show you are a professional. Show you are serious enough.

2) Get your custom email.
This has been my blog’s best marketing tool. My email is ‘Kiruba @’ and I don’t use any other free emails. Every time I send our an email, I promote my site in a subtle manner. My point is, why promote Yahoo or Hotmail, when you can promote yourself.

3)Publish your URL in stationaries.
Use it in your E-mail signatures. Use it in your business card. In your letter pad. Heck, I even have it on my helmet.

4) Add a blogroll
It’s the equivalent of ‘You scratch my back, I scratch your back’. Sign up with Add up your frequently read blogs.

6) Register your blog at
Blogstreet is and will continue to be the most important blog directory. Why wouldn’t you want to be here?

7) Provide RSS Feeds
Many people use Newsreaders to subscribe to their frequently read blogs. Don’t miss out on this crowd. Make sure your site has RSS feeds. If you don’t know what this is, ask a tech friend.

9) Write daily.
When people visit your site, they invest in their time and Interent time. And more importantly they think about you. Respect that. Don’t make them turnback empty handed.
