Ever considered started a design blog or personal blog to share your thoughts and ideas? Well, if you did, then this is the post for you! Today I am going to share the 3 basic tips for marketing your design blog. Consider them essentials or basic guidelines that don't have to be followed, but will surely help.
Having an email newsletter is one of the most beneficial tools you can use to market your blog, share your new products, and get closer to your readers. This is simple to set up and is well worth the money! If you plan to sell a book or product down the road, or want to advertise your services, an email newsletter is very important!
Social media is also very important for your traffic and promotional efforts. If you upload many inspiration posts, tutorials, and other news, social media is perfect for spreading it to the masses. If your posts are more personal and opinionated, consider sharing on sites like DesignerNews or HackerNews for a more discussion based audience.
The final driving power of your design blog is the content. This is what feeds into your social media promotions and email newsletter. With amazing, thought-provoking, and inspiring content, you can get a loyal audience who will grow to love and trust your blog. Building a trustworthy blog takes a long time, but it is worth putting your effort into content if you wish to place it in one single task.
