  6. Love the tips Shamelle. I’ve tried around ten of these methods over the past few months. Blog comments and social networking seems to work the best for me. I still need to add my blog to the directories though.

  7. I really liked your tips. But how is Social Monkee. Though it is a low budget service, I think using it post penguin may be questionable. Could you please elaborate on this?

    • I use Social Monkee for my blogs. But what’s important is to vary the links. Different anchor text, keyword tags etc.
      Also, I don’t do this regularly on the same blog. Meaning I don’t publish every post to Social Monkee. So far this strategy has worked for me.

  8. Hey Shamelle, really insightful and thoughtful post – thank you. I appreciate people feel blog promotion can be time consuming but I’ve also read that you should spend 20% of your time writing the post and 80% promoting it!

    I find triberr.com to be particularly helpful with promoting my posts via twitter. Also ensuring you have share features on your blog so readers can instantly share the love.
    I’m not sure how I feel about auto sharing; there can be problems in Facebook, for instance, with automated updates not getting through to reader’s newsfeeds…

    I think the key to all these things is to create a schedule and strategy then stick to it – you’ll soon find you can work your way quickly through your blog promotion and gain new readers…

    • Hi Rae,
      A few months ago, I sent a request to join a tribe on a related blogging niche. I got a reply saying that I need at least 500 followers to join! (I blogged about that in a previous post too).
      Hopefully when I have a huge following will approach one of the tribes again and see.

      Thanks for the comment. Hope you drop by regularly :-)

  9. Definitely some awesome points Shamelle. Social bookmarking and backlink services like Social Monkee and SocialADR are free or very inexpensive services that can do wonders for your blog/website.

  18. Good tips. I would have to stress what you said about Social Monkee. You need to be sure you diversify your link profile and after the recent Google updates, a lot of link building farms were highly penalized. So my recommendation would be to utilize such a service sparingly, as you mentioned and focus on more “white hat” methods like Blog commenting, guest posting and creating great content.

  19. This tips are really here to improve traffic, and I have to say I love them all, they are short and useful.

    But I have to say, Social Monkee isn’t that good for backlinks, I tried it and I only got nofollow links from it. I mostly comment on blogs that are in my niche with high PR and dofollow links.

  20. In today’s fast paced era, time is money and this post awares us of the best techniques to save time while promoting the product online

  29. Hi Shamelle – It certainly depends on how large your conference or event is. We’ve seen clients do this quite successfully at internal meetings and sales kick-offs where the mobile device was also a present from the company.

  30. Some good tips and I already do quite a few of them.

    #3 – I always try my best to reply to comments personally on my blog whenever I can.

    #6 – I’m on a few forums that relate to what I am and what I do. Forums such as V7N are great for webmasters and web developers, as well as bloggers.

    #10 – Thanks to Blogspot integration with Google+ I get auto-post publication directly to my public feed which is totally awesome. I also post to various G+ communities as well.

    #11 – I try and say thanks to people that retweet and favorite my tweets, but can be hard sometimes as Twitter doesn’t like to cooperate with me sometimes.

    #13 – While I don’t e-mail other bloggers, I have met a lot on Google+. I do talk to a lot of them too in their posts or in private posts, as well as on hangouts.
