379. How to market your blog?

One might have great language skills, great writing skills, great content, great thought process to run a blog page. But if the blog is not marketed properly, the world will not know about all these skills.Shakespeare did not become popular because of his English. England made him popular. Hence it is every blogger's birthright to market his/her blog. You might be a popular figure in your friends circle. But are you a popular figure in your college/workplace/town/state/country? You can become an international personality in no time, only if you know how to market your blog. You might say," Chriz! You are not an International personality. So Who gave you the right to write on this topic?". If you think that i am not yet an International personality, please check the following three pictures.. Click the pictures for enlarged (better) view.

1)Obama talks from his heart

He might be the President of America. But he remembers his inspiration in this picture

2) What does people around the world say about Chronicwriter?
Black or white, Yellow or Tanned, Brown or Pink. What ever be the race of the person, they all salute Chronicwriter here.

3) Secret behind Sehwag's dismissal

When Sehwag was dimissed in the 290s, his fans were disappointed; but he knew why he got out.

As I have proved my worth regarding my International fame and success, i am gonna carry on giving some tips for marketing your blog. There are two factors that are necessary to market your blog. 1) Primary Factors 2) Non-primary factors (otherwise called as secondary factors)
Primary factors to market your blog

1) You should have a blog. Click this [link] to read my article on blogging for beginners.
2) You should write something on your blog.
3) Visit other blogs and leave comments
4) Have a template that suits your stream of writing. If you write about world politics, a curved template like the one in this page will not suit you. If you are a joker, wear a joker costume; if you are a professional, wear a tie and a suit; if you are an informal guy, just be casual.
5) Perform steps 2 and 3 again
Non primary (Secondary) factors to market your blog
Now you are all dressed up to go to the party. Everyone will be in their best attire for the party. So you need to catch everyone's attention if you want everyone to notice you. So here are some tips to make your blog popular in the blogsville. The secondary factors is all about how well you Display your blog.
Public Display
  • Print your blog url in your t-shirt and walk around in crowded places. Walking around near IT parks yield better results. (8 % increase in blog readership)

Private Display

  • Stick your blog url in public toilets, dressing room mirrors in shops (28% increase in blog readership)

Mobile Display

  • Send your blog url as sms to random numbers if you have free sms service. ( % increase varies)

e-mail Display

  • Add your blog url to your signature and send a bulk mail to everyone on your e-mail list. ( 17 % increase in blog readership)

Twitter Display

  • Join twitter and keep on tweeting your blog url. (% increase depends on number of followers)

Cricket Display

  • Write your blog url on a placard and go to cricket matches. (2 % increase )

Chronicwriter Display

  • Interview chronicwriter and add the interview in your blog (Ain't i cruel?) ( 56 % increase)

Educational Display

  • Pay a visit to primary schools and visit every classroom. When the teacher is not looking at you, write your blog url on the black board. (13 % increase)

Library Display

  • Go to a library and open as many popular books as you can and write your blog url on the pages. (6 % increase in traffic)

Media Display

  • Call for a press meet and tell that Sachin Tendulkar is not a Marathi. ( Does not matter, even if people start hating you. Your blog traffic will increase multi folds)

Most of these tips might sound silly and wierd. But when you think crazy and act crazy, the world will notice you. Getting noticed is all that is needed to make your blog popular.
