1: CREATE A FACEBOOK CHATBOT

Use a Facebook Chatbot like Chatfuel or ManyChat to build a Facebook Messenger list, then start sending your top content to your chatbot subscribers.

2: PROVE YOU’RE THE EXPERT USING QUORA

Create a Quora profile with a link back to your page or to relevant articles, then start posting answers to questions that people have.

As appropriate, you can include links to your articles in the answers, which will drive even more traffic back to you.

Just be careful not to seem too spammy or self-promotional. Your answers should provide value, with the link to your site being an added bonus.

Next Steps:

  1. Create a Quora account
  2. Follow topics relevant to what you work on or write about
  3. Start engaging!

3: SHARE YOUR ARTICLES TO TWITTER, FACEBOOK, LINKEDIN

Okay, this one’s obvious, but I wanted to remind you of it in case you’re the type that hates self-promotion.

Show your readers value instead of just promoting your brand and this tactic will soon become your favorite one.

4: CREATE A BRANDED FACEBOOK PAGE

Aside from your personal Facebook page, create a “brand” Facebook page that links to your site and shares your latest articles.

This keeps readers up to date on the content you’re creating, it also shows them what your brand is up to, and is a necessary step if you eventually want to tackle Facebook ads.

A branded Facebook page also helps your search engine rankings since it’s another trustworthy source to add to your digital presence.

When people are looking for you on Google, they’ll see this in addition to your website.

5: DON’T FORGET TO USE THIS IMPORTANT SPACE ON YOUR TWITTER PROFILE

On your Twitter profile there’s a space to include a URL– don’t let this precious area go to waste and use it!

Include a link to your site, newsletter, or best-performing article so that when people see you on Twitter they know where they can get more of your content or learn more about your business.

6: YOUR INSTAGRAM PROFILE SHOULD HAVE THIS TOO

Just like Twitter, Instagram gives you just enough space to add a link to your website. This is actually the only place on Instagram you can use a URL, so take advantage of it!

When people find your pictures in their feed, they’ll know where to go to see more of what you have to offer. But they can’t do this if you don’t give them a link to use so be sure to add yours today.

7: DM YOUR NEW FOLLOWERS ON INSTAGRAM, TWITTER AND FACEBOOK

Anytime you gain a new follower on your social media platforms, reach out to them using a direct message, or DM.

Here, you can thank them for the follow and share your website link + a short sentence on why you think it could be relevant to them.

Bonus points if you can make your messages personal instead of sending a generic one each time.

8: ARE YOU USING YOUR SKYPE STATUS WISELY?

Always include a link to your site in your Skype status. It’s a nice, friendly reminder to anyone you’re connected with to check out your site and see what’s new.

9: YOUR PINTEREST PROFILE CAN GIVE YOU A NICE LITTLE BOOST TOO

Having a link to your site from your social media profiles not only helps people discover you, it also helps you get a bit more SEO juice to your site by pointing more profiles at it.

10: USE GOOGLE+ COMMUNITIES TO SPREAD YOUR REACH

Beyond just sharing your content on your own Google+ page, there are tons of communities within G+ that you can join and share your content to.This is a great option if you don’t have many followers on G+, since members of a community are usually going to be more active than the hundreds of followers you might have who never log on.
