7 Ways to Find Readers and Subscribers When No One Knows You Yet

Ahh the early days. A point where you count for five of the eight views on a recently published blog and co-workers are the other three.

There’s absolutely no shame in those days. It’s the beginning. It’s exciting! Any form of content can receive eight views one day then 8,000 the next. The real question is what are you willing to do to get those views?

CopyBlogger has the scoop to help more folks find your stuff when you have where’s waldo status.

  1. Be ready for the traffic you get. I LOVE that this is tip number one. Not being prepared is as disappointing as ordering a brownie blizzard and only getting a few brownie chunks. Manage expectations like a pro like checking that website speed and offering a seamless way to capture emails.
  2. Answer the right questions. Grab the simple sauce. Find out what questions your target audience is asking and answer them. This method gives you a stream of fresh content. And it puts you in a great position to serve your audience with quality content.
  3. Create something epic. Want to be the center of the conversation, then dedicate yourself to epic content. This piece is thorough, valuable, and wildly creative.
  4. Be a social butterfly. We’re not saying you have to become the next Kardashian on Instagram. CopyBlogger recommends two 10-minute social sessions where you can post on your own profile, comment in a social group, or cultivate relationships with other web publishers.

Facebook Question of the Day

Trina asked, “Any tips on improving Instagram photo quality for my team with no marketing & photography background?

I manage ~10 marketing ambassadors with no marketing, photography, etc. background. They each update posts for our restaurants’ Instagram and Facebook pages. We’re trying to step up our Instagram game across the company, but overall photo and post quality is very hit-or-miss among the team.

With high turnover in this industry, we are trying to avoid any lengthy training sessions or pricy programs (also because no one will read/watch/participate in anything that takes too long).

Social media team managers – how are you upping the standards for your content creators?”
