Just because you have started your blog doesn’t mean that people are going to start reading it. There is a plethora of information and wonderful blogs, you have to have something different to make yours stand out from the crowd. What is your story, why are you blogging, who is your target market, why should they listen to you?
All of those questions need to be answered. You have to give value and your site better look nice too. Because once you get them to your site you want to keep them there for a reason.
A good way to get traffic is by commenting on blogs in your industry with comments that are not just random useless crap. Give to the conversation and while others are reading that blog, they may click on your name and go to your blog.
Do this by using tools like Comment Sniper to get the first spot on a post for comments. People usually read the first couple comments and then move on. So if you can get in there first it will be good for the visitors and the blog owner because they will see that you actually care about what they are saying. Then once you build a relationship of trust they may ask you to guest post on their blog. Once you do that you are going to get a couple eyeballs looking at you and coming to see what you have to say.
Granted once you get them to your site, try to get them on a list of some sort. Yeah I know this blog doesn’t really try to do that very well. Well I do this for my pleasure and not for a business reason. But all aside building a list of followers through an email list is the surest way to get people talking about what you have said.
Hope that helps a bit, if you have further questions please leave it in the comments.
