Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business

Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business

Promoting your blog, business and website in this social media world, today is crucial to succeed.
Then, I want to help YOU to conquer your goals!

Promoting Your Blog & Promote Your Business

 

I’m offering and opening my “closed” spam-fortress, well..with its own spam holes – only for this post!

In this case I’ll drop a bit, my own rules about human spam. As a social media – networking geek, I feel that I need to give and give even more to the blogging community.

On this post you can promote your blog or business, right here, right now.

I know that several new people will come here, you’re welcome! I expect some of you could be new readers, and eventually new online friends. Therefore, I want to do a tiny introduction about this blog and my person.

# What would you expect from this social blog? In a nutshell, this blog is about social media content, blogging tips and a bit of food-health connections.

The “logical” SEO rules dictate that the more technical-blogging-social themes should be separated of the more foodie-related, but I don’t want to have two blogs for the lack of time. But anyway, I permanent insist, again, that if you’re blogger (no matter the niche) you need to know more about social media and blogging.

If you’re a businessman, you necessitate even more being into the social media realm, in a clever way to have a return of your investment of resources in time, personal and money!

As you see social media and social networking is trendy, real and you can touch it at every second, everywhere.

# Now aboutΒ  me, personally, aside from those points I like, mentioned before, my way of thinking is quite non- conventional. Why?

When I was in my engineering-study state, I hit my mind against a concept-wall, once, twice and several times about connections, all and everything is connected in a way or other. Today this idea is part of me.

There are fusion cuisines and also there are fusions of ideas plus concepts to achieve certain goals.
Need examples that things can be connected in non – conventional ways? Here there are tangible bizarre-combos that were engineering-projects long time ago and today are completely live and real:

  • Mathematic model of a cow applied on computers = nowadays related to computerized farms, to boost the dairy production on rural environments
  • Radar technology directly associated to the kitchen = at present the glorious microwave oven
  • Mathematic models of human organs = today applicable on computers to bio-engineering and actual devices like PETs, MRIs, and so forth.

 

Now, I suppose that your mindset can be opened to see that ALL can be interlinked. And therefore, you can also notice why in my mind tech, food, and other things can be connected πŸ™‚

Enough related to me, it’s your turn! Now let’s cut to the chase, it’s time you write – Yes YOU!

 

Promoting Your Blog

Tell us from your heart deeply about you, shamelessly promote your blog or promote your business.

  1. Introduce yourself and give us a landscape of what you do
  2. Make an introduction of your blog / business / website
  3. Share your success, failures, doubts or frustrations on this social media world
  4. Tell us what you feel about blogging or social media and which are your social media strategies
  5. Have a social media marketing plan? Or you spend your social time aimlessly?

 

Next Steps

You know me and I know you a little more, then don’t be shy and stay a while on this blog.

———————

I really APPRECIATE if you can:

  • Leave comments on other posts you’ve found interesting, speak your mind.
  • Bookmark this post in your preferred social bookmaking sites
  • If you liked this backlinking love I give you, I love also that you spread the world on this post!

I’ll share this post on all my social sites, follow me also on my social channels and both we will gain more exposure πŸ™‚

 

Few Rules

I stress again my blog commenting & social networking policy and Yes, I need to put few rules, here there are:

  • Most of the comments without names (only keywords) in the name field, will be deleted.
  • Please, no links to adult sites, gambling, pharmacy (you have the idea) autoblogs or anonymous blogs.
  • The comment can be of any length (more descriptive and detailed it’ll be beneficial for all the readers) But it must be Unique and not Duplicated from other site.
  • You can put a link to your principal site(s) and social sites. Don’t spam me with tons of links inside, because you know the result πŸ˜‰

 

I’ve been playing with this idea for long time and I jumped into it, after read a similar concept by Ana, who I thanks.
Indeed, I’ll extend this especial-post model concept that I had on my mind, to other social sites.

 

My Duties

Keep notice that several new comments will be sent to moderation or eventually to the spam folder (I’ll try to rescue them as soon as possible) Also take notice that I’m not 24 hours online, so be patient!

 

Ready? Stretched and warmed your fingers? (Hey, I’m a runner need to warm muscles often πŸ˜‰

All right! 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 Β Β Β  Go! Go to comments!

    Joanne

    What a great way to introduce good blogs to others.
    I’ll get started (leaping at the opportunity was never a problem for me πŸ™‚ )
    1. Joanne Willcox and I bake, cook, and run. I’m a health nut and Blog at http://www.applecrumbles.com *I just won at the California Raisin Bread Contest in Kansas for my runner friendly, “26.2 Mini Loaf” (at the contest it was called Marathon Mini Loaf.
    2. Guess I introduced my blog above http://www.applecrumbles.com for foodies and fitness. My running specific tips is a blog at http://runforendurance.blogspot.com Check it out!
    3. Success, failures, doubts in social media. I’m not sure I’ve achieved as much success as most. I work full time in manufacturing and wish I could visit more blogs because I believe the more you give the more you get. I’m speaking of comments. I’m still not sure how to fully grasp all the potential of Facebook, Twitter and have barely touched on all those others. It takes time which I don’t have right now.
    4. Strategies: Link to Facebook, Twitter and other S.M via sites that offer the link so I don’t have to re-post on several sites. Links are automoatic to my daily post.
    5. Right now, I feel my time is spent “aimlessly”. Guidance is requested. πŸ™‚
    Thanks Gera!

      Gerardo

      Joanne what a great introduction πŸ™‚ I didn’t know you’ve one specific for runners, interesting.

      3, 4. 5: Good points not all social must be done manually πŸ˜‰
      Social media can suck all your time. I try to use it in burst of 10-15 mins and off again. If not you can be hang out all the time.
      I focus on social sites that you can have better relationships or traffic (check stats) or other goals you can have. According to that concept is the site I visit.

      Hope this is very small guidance can help a little πŸ™‚

    Hi Gera, seems the blog circles have tightened up lately. I’ve noticed a lot less participation, support, and collaboration from those that visit regularly. I’m thinking everyone is getting busier with the end of the year and holidays coming up rapidly.

    I didn’t read Ana’s post however this intro seems to be a good idea for broadening the base. Good luck with it.

    BTW- I still haven’t made those empanadas!

    Have a great week πŸ™‚

      Gerardo

      Kathy I’ve noticed the same, I assume is the end of the year and holidays coming that all are busy.

      Check out Ana’s blog is great blogger related to traffic tips.

      Ohh empanadas, when you’ve time you’d try some and store in the freezer, for quick heat on microwave πŸ˜‰

      Have a great week also πŸ™‚

    Gerardo

    Yes John social can take 24 hours and isn’t enough, perhaps the reason why can go down on these days.

    Thanks for coming by!

    Hi Gera, As Kathy above mentioned that comments have been lacking recently I noticed that too. But I have to say that I’ve been reading and enjoying those blogs I visit but because of my timing issues I respond to only 2 or 3 rather than all. I’m wondering if time is more limited that kids are back-to-school and we have more ‘stuff’ to do before the after school activities begin.

    I so enjoy reading your posts, and apologize I have not been visiting lately.

    Thanks so much for all you do, I really appreciate the information you share.

    Joanne

    Gerardo

    No problem, time issues are global and I don’t have also much time to visit all the blogs and sites I want.

    Thanks Joanne!

    Gerardo

    Having some clear points on this social media realm is important but they must be adjusted constantly, because social things are changing very fast πŸ™‚
    Thanks for coming by John!

    Gerardo

    Hi geoio, I think most of people have different interests and this can be reflected on the blogs, why not? (unless they are completely opposites)
    I’ll visit your blog, possibly in English πŸ™‚

    Many thanks for your sharing luv and coming by!

      Gerardo

      Thanks Ryan! Great to see you on this blog πŸ™‚

    Gerardo

    The post is pretty new and as it was predictable, I’m seeing new people coming to expose their sites and thoughts.
    Happy to meet you Smith Maly!

    This reply is now alone because the commenter spammed with several more later πŸ™

    Shelby

    Hey Gera, like several others here have said, another great post!

    I think with so many new blogs out there it is hard to keep up with everything, hence fewer comments, but as I’ve said before, that doesn’t really bother me much because I see my traffic πŸ™‚

    I’ve been blogging for quite some time now and there are bloggers that I have seen out there for just as long and watched their sites grow and become better over times (as I do feel mine has!). I also feel this “connection of friendshipe” with those I don’t really “know” especially with those same bloggers I’ve followed. We are a family worldwide and its great to support each other in the best ways possible. Thank you for being such a great support to us bloggers!

    Karen

    Hey there Gera, some brilliant information for new and seasoned bloggers πŸ˜‰

    Anthony

    I know how trendy and popular social media is now. And I often feel envious hearing people saying they are receiving a lot of benefits using the strategy. It is discouraging that I still have little idea about how it can help me. I want to learn promoting a product on social network sites as well.

      Gerardo

      Anthony stick with a social site your feel comfortable like Twitter or Facebook, engage a lot and you’ll receive the social traffic back!

      Thanks for coming by!

    Gerardo

    You’re welcome Anny!

    Natasha

    Always helpful!

    Amit

    Hey Gera, you did a great thing and an excellent informative post, a lot of great techniques of promoting your blog. In my opinion, the most important way of promoting your blog nowadays is through social networks.

      Gerardo

      Thanks Amit! With social networks you can expose your site in a great manner.

    Gerardo

    Dan thanks for sharing your site with us!
    Pleasure to meet you πŸ™‚

    chachart

    Now I have done reading about effective blogging,now here I am about promoting it. Sir Great post, please do keep on blogging, and writing post about blogs, you are such a great help.

    Gerardo

    I know that are different words, but not, in my mind πŸ™‚ Some tech material mixed with some foodie-stuff, is a good recipe.

    Many thanks for sharing your site and for the visit Ali!

    Gerardo

    Satrap, glad if you come from the excellent Gail’s blog! No problem – this post is right for that point – promote yourself and your site πŸ™‚

    Hope you can achieve all your goals! and social media is becoming more and more important, no matter the niche.
