The dream of every blogger is to have access to thousands of readers and subscribers. The following tips will help you achieve this dream.

If you want to get real traffic to your blog and market it the right way, then you will have to take a step out of your comfort zone and start guest blogging. Now, don’t confuse guest blogging with any random blog marketing technique; it’s actually one of the most powerful promotional tools that you’ll ever come across in the blogging world. Guest blogging is all about writing for other blogs in your niche as a, you’ve guessed it right – guest blogger. Try to write at least one guest post a week, which will help you create a strong impression on the readers of that blog. People will trust you more when they read your posts on a blog that they already trust. This also helps you strengthen your relationships with the other bloggers in your niche, which will be helpful to you in the long run. Guest blogging not only helps you get targeted traffic, but also gives you high quality back-links that you can count on.

Interaction with your readers is a must – there’s no other way around it. You should make time to reply to your readers comments. This certainly doesn’t mean that you should reply to each and every comment, but if somebody asks you a question in the comments section then make sure you give them an answer. By showing your readers you care in this way, it helps to build a good relationship with them. Readers love to interact with their favorite bloggers, so doing so will keep them coming back to your blog. By establishing a strong relationship with your readers, they become loyal and may start inviting others to your blog. So, make sure to interact with your readers when you can.

Coming up with a strong social media approach is highly recommended. Nowadays, you can’t just depend on search engine traffic to get readers to your blog – you have to embrace the social web in the best possible way, and see to it that you’re not ignoring anything major in this area. Twitter and Facebook social networks often go together so be sure to have both buttons presents. Social media is a proven way to get the visitors that your blog primarily targets. Writing a great blog is based on your approach and how well you can build your presence. Even wholly new bloggers need to be able to take big leaps and check out new territory–this helps you feel prepared for competition later on.
