8 CHEAP Ways To Promote Your Blog

Hello blogoolians, I am collating a huge list of blog promotion resources to help you promote your blogs across the World Wide Web! The list is in no particular order and will continue to grow when I discover new methods. There are two lists, one for free blog promotion methods and one for paid blog promotion methods.

Please note that this list is for PAID options only.

promote-blog-odesk

Website: http://odesk.com

Cost: Varies (see below)

What you get: Contractors working for you to help promote your blog.

Sams verdict: oDesk tops the list, it has really been a great find for me. You can hire contractors to work for you based on your specific job requirements. For blog promotion you can hire someone and give them instructions to promote your website via Facebook, Twitter, Forums, Other Blogs etc. oDesk has a really stable and well built framework where work diaries even contain screenshots of the persons computer during their working hours so you can keep track of work tasks.

promote-blog-googleadwords

Website: https://adwords.google.com

Cost: Varies (see below)

What you get: Your advert on the right hand side of Google search results, when people click on your ad you pay whatever you specified as the amount per click.

Sams verdict: During the first few weeks using Google Adwords I got 617 page views which costed AUD $59.55 so far. So you’re averaging 60 cents a page hit so it’s pretty expensive. Obviously every blog/website is different so these figures will vary depending on your keyword competition and bid rates.

promote-blog-facebook

Website: http://www.facebook.com/ads/create/

Cost: Varies (see below)

What you get: Your advert on the right hand side of Facebook website, when people click on your ad you pay whatever you specified as the amount per click exactly like Google Adwords.

Sams verdict: During the first few weeks using Facebook Ads I got 200 clicks (not sure how many page views but probably close to 600) which costed about AUD $60 all up. So you’re averaging 60 cents a hit so it’s pretty expensive. Pretty much the same outcome as Google Adwords.

promote-blog-blogoola

Website: http://blogoola.com

Cost: $2.95 a week

What you get: Up to 25 people a day visit your blog from different countries around the world. Also your blog listed as a representative of your country and your blogs feature on your country, region and city pages to attract local visitors and heaps more features are included.

Sams verdict: BLOGOOLA is probably the cheapest way to promote your blog online and increase your blog traffic. Their reduce bounce rate options for visitors can help make your blog popular with Google.

promote-blog-stumbleupon

Website: https://www.stumbleupon.com/ads/

Cost: Varies (see below)

What you get: Page hits for your blog

Sams verdict: I put USD $25 with a Stumbleupon to my blog and I got 300 page views BUT this was 95% bouce rate which means people were just closing it within a few seconds or so… I recommend to use only if you have a blog post that is extra-ordinary and will keep people from closing the page.

promote-blog-bc

Website: http://blogcatalog.com

Cost: $9.95 a month (blog must be at least 3 months old)

What you get: Your blog listed in their directory, some stats and add a picture.

Sams verdict: Blog Catalog is basically a huge blog directory. My blog is listed but the membership doesn’t really get you anything except your blog in their directory which doesn’t seem to be promoting my blog at all… maybe I’m missing something? See their features.

promote-blog-twiends

Website: http://twiends.com

Cost: USD $6.95 weekly

What you get: More followers for your Twitter account.

Sams verdict: Twiends can increase your twitter followers but be careful as you dont want your accounts banned if they are classed as a spam accounts. Please Follow the Rules and Best Practices provided by Twitter.

promote-blog-problogger

Website: http://problogger.com/forum/

Cost: USD $5 a month to use the forum.

What you get: To chat with other bloggers, a few questions aswered and a few visitors to your blog.

Sams verdict: Worth signing up to Problogger only for 1 month, posting as much static content with links to your blog articles as you can and then unsubscribe. It just doesn’t have enough active members to warrant the cost and it’s popularity is on a downfall.

people-per-housr

Website: http://peopleperhour.com

Cost: Varies (see below)

What you get: Contractors working for you to help promote your blog.

Sams verdict: PeoplePerHour is a website where you can hire freelancers to do jobs for you. If you wanted some promotional work done on your blogs you can hire people to help promote them for you. All you do is post a job and then contractors will bid against each other with offers on how much they can do the job for – at the end of the bidding you pick the lucky winner.

If you know a cheap way to promote blogs let me know and you may appear in this list contact us.
