99 Ways to Promote Your Blog for Free

This post was originally published 6 years ago. During the past 6 years the blogging world has changed drastically, and as a result, the content of this post was horribly outdated and no longer relevant. We’ve totally scrapped the original post and re-wrote it to provide insight that can be applied by today’s bloggers.

With millions of blogs out there, getting noticed can be quite a challenge for the new blogger. Simply posting content won’t lead to visitors. When you’re trying to establish your blog you’ll need to work on some promotion to help kick start your blog’s growth. In this article we’ll focus on free options and we’ll look at 99 ways to promote your blog for free. Since most of our readers are designers, some of the points are specifically applicable to design blogs, but the majority of the content is relevant to blogs in any industry or niche.

99 Ways to Promote Your Blog for Free

Guest Blogging

One of the most popular and common ways to get free exposure for your blog is by writing posts to be published at other blogs.

1. Write for other blogs in your niche/industry

A great way to get exposure to your target audience is to submit guest posts to other blogs in your industry or niche. Typically your guest posts will include a brief author bio at the end that will include a link to your own blog. This is one of the best ways to build name recognition and prove your expertise.


2. Exchange guest posts with other blogs in your industry/niche

While writing posts for other blogs is a great option for promotion, you’ll also need some content for your own blog. You can arrange with another blogger in your niche to exchange guests posts. Each of you will write a post that will be published at the other’s blog. You’ll both get quality blog content and you’ll both get some added exposure. Do this with a few different bloggers and you will be able to build several new links and reach a large number of readers.

3. Create a series with other bloggers

If you want to get creative you could coordinate with a few other bloggers in your niche to create a series. You can all write posts on related topics and interlink the posts to each other. Your posts can be published at your own blogs, or you can exchange them and publish the post at each other’s blogs.

4. Find guest posting opportunities with PostJoint

PostJoint is a site where you can find blogs who are looking for content. You create an account and submit your article and bloggers will have the opportunity to invite you to publish at their blog. PostJoint includes both free and sponsored content.

5. Find guest posting opportunities with MyBlogGuest

MyBlogGuest is another site that exists to help you find a home for your guest posts. Bloggers who are looking for free content can sign up, making it easier for you to find a place to publish your guest posts.

6. Find guest posting opportunities with GuestBlogIt

GuestBlogIt is a similar site where writers and publishers can sign up and collaborate. You can sign up for a free account and there is also an option to pay for a premium account with some added features.

7. Link to a free resource from your author bio

When your guest posts are published at other blogs the author bio will be key to how much you get out of your efforts. One of the best ways to get the most impact is to offer a free resource and link to it from your author bio. Rather than just placing a link and asking readers to visit your site, offer something of value (like an e-book) for free and you’ll likely get a much better response.

8. Use a call to action in your author bio

In your author bio you want to lead visitors in a certain direction by including a call to action. Use the call to action to get them to visit your site for the free resource.

9. Use your best articles as guest posts

When you’re just getting started with promoting your blog you should consider using your best posts at other blogs. Although your blog will of course need great content, by using your best posts at other blogs you’ll make more of an impression on those readers and you should pick up more new followers this way. As your blog grows your emphasis will shift and you’ll want to use your best posts on your own blog.

10. Write an article for your local newspaper

Writing for other blogs and websites isn’t the only option. You can also market your blog and yourself by writing an article for your local newspaper. Some articles may include a brief author bio, in which you could list your blog’s URL.

11. Write an article for an industry magazine

Likewise, you could also write an article for a magazine that would reach your target audience.

Blog Content

The content of your blog is also critical to your promotional efforts. A blog with great content is easy to promote, while a blog with poor content is difficult to promote no matter what approach you take.

12. Answer common questions from readers

When you’re deciding what topics to cover with upcoming blog posts, think about your readers and what problems they are facing and what questions they have. This is a great way to ensure that you publish content that is genuinely helpful to your readers.

13. Interview bloggers and others in the industry

Another type of post that can be very helpful to readers is an interview of another blogger or someone noteworthy within your industry or niche. One of the reasons that this can be helpful for promoting your blog is that in many cases the person being interviewed will share a link to the interview from their social media profiles, or maybe even link to it from their own blog.

14. Take a controversial stand

One approach for gaining exposure and getting noticed is to use controversy. Just covering certain topics can create controversy, or maybe you’ll take a particular stand on a debated issue. Of course, you’ll want to be able to back up your view. Controversial posts are often linked to and shared via social media.

15. Publish posts in a series

You can publish a series of a few different posts on the same topic to encourage repeat visitors. This will also allow you to cover the particular topic in great depth and detail, which can be helpful for building authority and establishing your expertise. You can also publish posts in a recurring series, such as posts on a specific topic to be publish on a certain day of the week.

16. Write helpful tutorials

Step-by-step tutorials can be extremely helpful for people who are looking to learn something specific. This is a great option for bloggers in the design/development industry, and there are countless things that you can teach through tutorials. These types of posts tend to attract links, and it is another effective way to demonstrate your expertise.

17. Create list posts

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, list posts can be effective for getting exposure. Readers can scan list posts very quickly, they tend to be shared a lot via social media, and a good quality list post can be very helpful and informative. The challenge is to create a list post that is original, since there are so many of them out there already.

18. Improve your blog post titles

One of the best ways to encourage readers to share your posts is to use engaging and interesting titles and headlines. With so many articles being published each day, most people will read headlines and skip over those that don’t grab their attention. If you’re effective at writing titles you can get more eyeballs on your post content and people will be more likely to share it via social media. See How to Write Magnetic Headlines from Copyblogger.

19. Write in short paragraphs

Make your blog posts easy to read and scan by using short paragraphs. Most readers will prefer to scan or skim your content, and short paragraphs make this much easier.

20. Use sub-headers

Sub-headers also help to make your posts easy to read.

21. Offer email subscription in addition to RSS

If you’re a FeedBurner user you can offer your visitors to option to subscribe to your blog via email instead of RSS. Many people prefer email, so make sure you offer it. If you’re concerned about FeedBurner possibly shutting down, another option is FeedBlitz. FeedBlitz isn’t free, but it is reasonably priced.

22. Post consistently

Don’t go months between blog posts. There is no specific frequency with which you should post, but in most cases you’ll want to publish at least once per week to build an audience and maintain momentum.

23. Update old content when appropriate

In addition to adding new content to your blog, consider updating important posts that have become outdated.

Networking

I’ve never known a successful blogger who wasn’t well connected. Your network will have a big influence on your success as a blogger, so building your network should be a priority.

24. Respond to comments on your blog posts

When you’re trying to build your blog’s exposure comments are often hard to come by. You can show readers that you appreciate their comments and encourage more interaction by responding to all comments that you receive.

25. Reach out to other bloggers in your industry/niche

Make a proactive effort to get to know some other bloggers in your niche. Don’t be afraid to fill out a contact form or send an email just to introduce yourself. In the early days of this blog I made an effort to reach out to others with new design blogs, and some of those people are still in my network 5 or 6 years later.

26. Focus on quality of contacts rather than quantity

You don’t need to be connecedt to every blogger in your niche or have hundreds of people in your network. Focus on building solid connections with severl key people rather than trying to have one-time contact with a lot of different people.

27. Connect with other bloggers who are at the same stage

One common mistake by bloggers when it comes to networking is to only attempt to network with the most popular and established bloggers in the industry. The problem with that is these people are probably extremely busy. If you’re in the early stages of building your blog make an effort to get to know some others who are just starting out. People at a similar stage of blogging will generally be more responsive to you, and you’ll be able to help each other as you both grow your blogs.

28. Look for ways to help others

When it comes to networking the last things you want to do is forget that it is a two way street. If you only look for ways to benefit yourself, your networking efforts will not be very successful. Look for ways to help others and you’ll find that your network efforts pay off much more. You’ll develop better relationships, more of them, and people will be more interested in helping you when the opportunity arises.

29. Participate in interviews for other blogs

Being interviewed by other bloggers is a great way to get to know them, so when you are approached to do an interview accept the request if at all possible.

30. Promote other bloggers’ posts with your social media profiles

Make an effort to share links to other people’s posts via social media. Everyone loves traffic, so other bloggers will really appreciate this. Also, some of them will reciprocate by sharing links to your content.

Email Marketing

Email marketing is one of the best promotional opportunities available. With an establish list you’ll be able to stay in close contact with your subscribers and you’ll be able to get much more repeat traffic than you could get otherwise.

31. Start an email newsletter with MailChimp

In addition to offering your blog updates by email, I’d encourage you to also offer readers to option to sign up for a newsletter or mailing list. You can use this list without having to post to your blog, so it gives you added flexibility. Since we’re focusing on free options in this post, MailChimp offers a free plan for lists under 2,000 subscribers. If you’re willing to spend a small amount of money, I personally recommend Aweber, although I have used MailChimp as well.

32. Place a sign up form in a prominent location

Place your opt-in form somewhere where visitors are sure to see it. Common locations include the end of blog posts, the top of the sidebar, in a notification bar, or even in a popup.

33. Use a free resource as a bonus for subscribers

You can encourage visitors to subscribe by offering something of value as a free bonus if they sign up. Things like e-books, special reports, and other downloads are commonly used for this purpose. With a quality freebie you’re likely to get exponentially more subscribers than you could get without it.

34. Email your list regularly

Once people sign up to your list they should hear from you on a regular basis. Your newsletter will be most effective if you develop the trust of your subscribers, and you’ll need to stay in contact in order to accomplish this.

35. Share links to your best posts

You can use your newsletter list to share links to your best posts and increase the reach of these posts.

36. Don’t overwhelm subscribers with too many emails

Most subscribers won’t want to be bombarded with emails. The ideal frequency will vary from list to list, but most subscribers won’t want to receive an email every day.

Social Media

Social media for blog promotion has changed over the years, but there are still plenty of opportunities to reach a new audience and quickly grow your blog with the help of social media.’

37. Start a sharing network with some blogging friends

If you know some other bloggers in your niche that are also trying to grow their blogs, consider an arrangement where you can help each other by sharing links to each other’s posts via your social media profiles.

38. Use social media for more than just sharing your own links

Because social media can be so effective for building traffic many bloggers use it just for this purpose. In order to have a real impact with social media you’ll need to get involved with the community of users. Most users don’t appreciate other users who only participate in order to promote their own content.

39. Submit links to Design Newz

For design blogs, Design Newz is a great place to submit your links and get a little bit of exposure.

40. Submit links to Design Float

Design Float was the first social voting site to specifically target the web/graphic design niche, and it is still a useful site for design bloggers.

41. Submit links to The Web Blend

The Web Blend is another social voting site that targets the design niche. It seems to currently be the most active social voting site in the design niche.

42. Submit links to Design Bump

Design Bump is also a social voting site where you can post links to your articles.

43. Submit links to DZone

DZone is a large and very active site for content related to web and software development.

44. Share links at Twitter

After you publish each post take a moment and share the link via your Twitter profile. You can also share links to older posts from your archives when you want to get a little bit of attention for posts that have been buried in the archives.

45. Communicate with other bloggers via Twitter

Use Twitter as a networking tool to get in touch with other bloggers in your niche.

46. Share links at Facebook

Just like you should be sharing links to your posts on Twitter, also share them on Facebook. I would recommend setting up a Facebook page for your blog rather than just relying on your personal profile.

47. Comment at the Facebook page of other blogs

You can also network by getting involved on the Facebook pages of other blogs in your niche.

48. Share links at Google+

Google+ is also a useful place to share your links. Establishing a presence here and getting more +1’s on your posts can also have an impact on your search engine rankings.

49. Run a Google+ hangout

Communicate with readers and/or other bloggers by taking advantage of the Google+ hangouts feature.

By creating an account and uploading an image to use as a Gravatar you will have your custom avatar shown at many blogs and social sites when you leave a comment.

Blog Engage is a smaller social media site where you can share links to your posts.

57. Share links at Blokube

Blokube is a small social media site that focuses on topics like marketing and design.

58. Ask readers to share your posts

You may want to consider adding some social sharing icons at the end of your posts so readers can easily share a link to the post. Many bloggers include text that asks readers to share the post, which obviously encourages more shares.

59. Follow the social media profiles of other bloggers

Use social media to follow other bloggers in addition to using it for your own promotional purposes.

Freebies

Creating and distributing free resources is a proven approach for attracting links and gaining exposure. Everybody loves to get something for free and when you offer something of real value you’re likely to get noticed. For those in the design industry there are all kinds of options.

60. Post free resources at your own blog

Use your design skills to create some free resources are release them from your own blog. If you’re not sure what to create, several possibilities are listed below.

61. Textures

Textures are highly useful for all types of graphic design, and with the help of a camera or scanner you can create your own textures to give away.

62. Icons

Web designers are always in need of quality icons. If you design and offer a nice set of icons for free it will be appreciated by visitors and other designers.

63. Photoshop brushes

Photoshop brushes, like textures, are very versatile and designers always love to have more brushes in their arsenal.

64. Vectors

Vector graphics are another option that will be useful to others.

69. Fonts

70. Business card templates

71. Flyer templates

It could be a flyer for an event, a party, a corporate flyer, or any other type of flyer.

72. Brochure templates

73. Resume templates

74. Offer free resources to be published at other blogs

75. Share free resources at your Facebook page

One approach to increase your Facebook fans is to offer free resources that can be downloaded by people who like your page.

76. Turn old blog posts into a free e-book

77. Create an infographic

Infographics are really popular right now and good ones tend to be shared by many blogs and at social media sites.

78. Create a SlideShare presentation

Create a presentation that attracts attention at SlideShare and you could get thousands of views.

79. Create a “best of” post

One way to get others to share your content is to compliment them. You can create a post that showcase a number of the best of something and the people featured are likely to share the link. For example, if your blog is in the design industry you could create a post titled “20 Up and Coming Design Blogs to Watch”. Then create a badge or graphic and send it to those bloggers that were featured. If they post it on their site and link back to your post it could result in extra exposure for you.

80. YouTube or Vimeo video

Videos are also a great option for creating viral content, and they can be easily embedded and shared by other blogs.

81. Write an e-book

Popular free e-books are also often shared and linked to by many blogs and websites.

82. Offer a free course

Instead of an e-book, you could compile an online course either in text or video format and offer it for free. I quality course would be likely to be shared quite a bit.

Getting links is an important part of building your blog. Here is a look at some things you can do to encourage links to your blog.

Take a few minutes each day and leave some well thought out comments on other blogs in your industry or niche.

When you are writing a new post, take opportunities to link to your older posts within the content. Internal links from your own blog can help to increase page views and can also have an impact on search engine rankings.

86. Link out to other blogs

Also be willing to link out to other blogs in your posts. This is especially important when you’re just getting started with your blog because the pingbacks can help others to notice your blog. Also, some bloggers will look to reciprocate and link back to you.

  • Echizen, September 19, 2007

  • Lincoln, September 20, 2007

    1. Exchange links with other bloggers

    I stopped reading after that. :-P

  • Tay, September 20, 2007

    Great pillar post, Steven! I’ve bookmarked this for quick access and it’ll also be included in my next roundup. I love all of your ideas and they’re all going to be extremely helpful for blog promotion (except for maybe the BlogRush one). ;) Keep up the fantastic work!

  • Robert, September 20, 2007

    Nice List. and one very important one is to comments that packs a punch. Unlike this one I’m making now ;-)

  • david, September 20, 2007

    I think you should have made it 99+1 as your title; that would have been cooler in my view! Great list.. busy clicking through all those links to get some exposure!

  • Vandelay Design, September 20, 2007

    Chris,
    I agree with you. StumbleUpon is an incredible source of traffic.

    Tay,
    Thanks for bookmarking. You may have noticed that I don’t use BlogRush here, and I don’t plan on it. But it is a legitimate option so I included it.

    Robert,
    Funny comments pack a punch too (yours qualifies). Thanks for the feedback.

    David,
    Thanks for the suggestion. Hope you find some good promotion methods here.

  • rob, September 21, 2007

  • Ponn Sabra, September 23, 2007

    Great resource list!

    As for free online press release distribution centers, we compiled and maintain the most comprehensive list (for a fee and free) here. There are over 40+ websites listed now (also refer to the comments below) and I quickly counted at least a dozen “free” sites.

  • Hoto, September 24, 2007

  • LGR, September 25, 2007

    I have to wonder about BlogRush. While it certainly has gotten a lot of attention in the last week, I am not convinced that it will help people actually promote their blogs unless they already get 1000’s of pages views a day. Not to mention it seems to have it problems already with spam blogs and people cheating the system. People might be better off doing the other items you mention in link building than using BlogRush, but I guess time will tell.

  • Vandelay Design, September 26, 2007

    LGR,
    I agree with you on Blog Rush. I don’t think it is the best option, that’s why I don’t use it here. I do, however, think that it is a legitimate option that some people will have some success with.

  • Rose DesRochers, September 27, 2007

    Steven – Feel free to add bloggingfusion.com to your list of directories to submit to.

  • vincent, September 27, 2007

    I have just started a new blog. I would follow this promoting campaign and will see what happen.

  • Vandelay Design, September 27, 2007

    Thanks for the additional resource Rose.

    Vincent,
    Good luck with your new blog. Good luck with promoting it!

  • Cole Haan, October 2, 2007

    wow, I was only looking for about 10 ways to promote my site before I reached your blog.
    I will submit a few articles, but can I submit the same article to many websites ? like I submit an article to ezine and then I want to submit the same article to ArticleDashboard. Is it possible ?

  • Vandelay Design, October 2, 2007

    Yes, you can submit the same articles to multiple sites (unless they state otherwise), but due to duplicate content you’ll get more out of it if you submit different articles. Of course that takes more time.

  • Platinax, October 10, 2007

    What’s especially great about this list is how most of it doesn’t require money, just time and effort put in. I think if anyone is really serious about their website, that’s what’ll they should be prepared to do. 2c.

    Hey, I saw a duplicate of this post on Google, this guy have exactly copied all of your post without giving you any credit. blog.kutakutik.or.id/internet/99-ways-to-promote-your-blog-for-free/

  • Bejo, October 16, 2007

    Dear Vandelay,

    Sorry for forget to trackback, my deep apologise for that.
    fixed that.

    4. Blogdemic retrieves your RSS feed several times an hour and creates your banner advertisements automatically.
    5. You can determine how often other blogs banner display on your blog vs your own advertising tag i.e. like Google Adsense. So you can make money and drive traffic to your blog at the same time!

  • webo, October 22, 2007

    i think writing ebook is great way to fin traffic

  • WordHugger, October 28, 2007

    Excellent list. I have bookmarked it to check on it later.

  • Weider Home Gym Junkie, October 31, 2007

    This is an extremely useful list. Wish I had this when I started out. If you follow this ‘recipe’, you simply have to succeed in the blogging game. It does take time and effort, but the pay-off is worth it. Thanks for your input.

  • chen, November 6, 2007

    try also http://www.doktus.de if you want to reach a German audience (it’s quite similar to scribd though)

  • Intergalactic Hussy, November 7, 2007

    Thanks for the links….Everything you say is great advice, some of which I’ve done already and others that I will do later. The only thing I’ve experienced to not always work well is emailing fellow bloggers or readers who comment. I have done this before and many times, which usually gets me no response whatsoever. But at least I try. :)

  • perlita, November 10, 2007

    Great! Thanks for sharing!

  • brown, November 11, 2007

    A good list, thanks!

  • Anpy, November 13, 2007

    Excellent resource list..

  • Demexii, November 13, 2007

    #6 seems a bit low if you ask me. I mean using a second blog to link back to yourself seems unethical and cheating in a way. Just how I see it. However, I agree that social networks do help drive a good amount of traffic for free. I actually found stumbleupon and youtube to give back a lot of traffic.

  • Collin LaHay, November 16, 2007

    You may want to add http://www.rsshugger.com to the list, as it has launched recently and can help bloggers as well as readers. Check it out!

  • Deepak Kumar, November 17, 2007

    I am glad to read the tips to promote websites. I will use these tips to promote my website. I request you to kindly publish more tips.

    Thanks

  • Vandelay Design, November 17, 2007

    Demexii,
    I guess I don’t see it the same way as you (and that’s fine). There are a lot of blog networks out there that all link to each other, and many bloggers have more than one project. I think if the links are relevant than it’s ok. If I’m a regular reader of a particular blogger I would like to know if he or she has other blogs, so why not provide a link?

  • chris, April 21, 2008

    Nice list, thanks for sharing.

    “Good content” + “connections” is the key in my experience.

    You need the content to keep people coming back but you definately need connections for the first launch.

    It’s not easy anymore to get to the first page on Digg. And as it gets popular “lighter” stories start to dominate.
    So digg like sites with niches become the next destination
    N4G.com is great for game news
    BizHeat.com for Business news
    Y Combinator for Tech news
    etc.

  • Viktor, May 2, 2010

    Well the writer did a really good job making this lists and ways to promote your own blog. But like always there are many things that are missed out… I would suggest to bloggers to stop worrying about the traffic and starting making high quality and unique content which will attract visitor by visitor.

    When you have more than 25-30 great and unique articles than you can start advertising your blog, so the newcomers will actually visit it again.

    If the visitor come to your blog and see that there’s nothing interesting on it, he’ll never remember it and return.

  • John, May 18, 2010

    And old article by now, but still very useful. Maybe you can post an update on how to promote your site or blog in the current scenario.

  • Brook Adyn, July 25, 2010

    The best way I found to promote your blog is 1) add yourself to the above social networks and then, 2) Create digests, power articles and information which HELP others accomplish something. Then OTHERS will share and promote your page/site for free! 1 in a thousand will

    Example: A Blog about interior design. Article subject: “30 of the best interior design galleries”.

    Example: A Blog about tech/software etc: Article subject: “The worst copycats of apple mac computers”. (List and images of all copycats.)

    Good, original content which takes the viewers use into mind is 1000x a bland article or post.

  • Faheem, August 2, 2010

    Great tips! Working on them…Quality content that help others surely give your blog a boost. Don’t push yourself too hard for just promoting, give your blog reasonable time and enrich it with content that can be liked by audience.

  • TipsBox, August 9, 2010

    Here’s a tip: visit my blog, leave a comment with a link to your blog & I’ll visit it. Also, I’ve noticed that other visitors click on those links people leave in my comments section, so you may get a few new readers.

  • Zach Inglis, September 8, 2010

    I just realized that we have never tried doing item #19

    “Email your readers to say “thank you””

    Every e-mail campaign we had is for some promo or announcement of sorts. But never entirely for thanking our company blog readers.

    We will try this one and hopefully can generate goodwill from our readers to our company.

    Thanks for this. ;)

  • Jason, October 5, 2010

    This is a Great resource! Something I will come back to again and again… What happened to the other 67 traffic methods? :-) You mention ‘ YouTube’ (videos) in your list and although this method of Traffic generation takes a little more time, I highly recommended submitting videos to all video sharing channels as one of the best ways to create fast and sustainable Traffic. About 80% of my Traffic continues to come from Videos!

  • Web Design Arbroath, October 5, 2010

    Shame the other 67 have vanished! Does anyone still use Blog Carnival?

  • essex website designers, October 12, 2010

    Yeah it’s a shame about the links, still it was a very long time ago this blog was done:)

  • qontent, October 19, 2010

    A great tip to promote blogs and sites, is “Add Links To” (http://www.addlinksto.com). Worth it, great!

  • Max, December 14, 2010

    I love this list, I periodically visit it when I need new ideas or some inspiration to promote my blog. Thanks again.

  • Aaron, December 22, 2010

    This a pretty good list. It’s hard when you get started, but if you can manage to burst the first waves, it might get easier.
    Me personally, I’m still trying to go through the first waves, if I keep it up and don’t give up, it will be easier.

  • Robert Welch, December 26, 2010

    My personal favorite is article submission it can get you many back links if you take the time to create quality original content.

  • john, March 13, 2011

    Submit your blogs to couple of blogs directory like ….www.411topblogs.com which help you to get free traffic, reviews, statistic report and also you can post your post on their site by RSS/FEED urls.

  • Damion Lee, March 20, 2011

    Some good suggestions in there, and I’ve already put some of them to good use. I’m not sure that I’ll bother with doing the themes with a link in them, however, it certainly seems like a valid idea. What I am going to do is write a number of small articles to submit to article sites with the idea of drawing people back to the site.

  • PixelFIX, May 12, 2011

    Very good sugettions. Did Facebook get a mention in there? I didn’t see it. http://www.facebook.com/photorestoration has all my blog posts automagically fed into.
