Promote your blog with these 11 tools

Some you’ve heard of, and some you haven’t. Either way, they’re excellent traffic drivers.

Effectively promoting content is often the most challenging part of content marketing. Some estimates suggest people upload as many as 2 million blog posts every 24 hours.

The good news—and underlying opportunity—is there are several websites that can help you promote your articles and cut through the increasing noise.

1. Examiner

Examiner only allows people who create high quality content to publish on the site. The topics are endless, ranging from social media and paintball to auto repair to tax advice. It reads like an online magazine, and community members update it constantly.

If you are good enough to make it through the application process, you get your own dashboard and an assigned topic for your city. You are allowed to create as many articles as you desire. The creators who have the most luck generally create eight or more entries per month; however, you could get by with only three or four. After you complete an article, your post is formatted and published with a link to your profile, Examiner title, and social media sharing icons.
