[Starting a Successful Blog] Lesson 19
ARE YOU READY?
I don't know about you but I am really excited for you because we are at our last lesson - the BIG LAUNCH for your blog!
You've come a really long way. It's been 20 posts! Can you believe it?
This post is all about launching your blog. You just gotta continue sharing, sharing & sharing!
Let's get down to it!
Facebook Groups, Forums & Friends
Well it really depends on how much of a social media junkie, forum junkie or back to the good-old-friends-network person.
- Facebook groups has its perks but also restrictions, especially if you haven't joined or participated actively in any Facebook group previously. There are many Facebook groups out there, some are meant for advertising and publicity, but most have rules and regulations that you should abide by. As for Facebook groups, go for it only if you're up to it.
- Forums are like the ancient social networks, but if you are familiar or a regular on a forum, you can use it as an avenue to get the word out about your new blog.
- Last but least, don't belittle the power of old school word-of-mouth advertising. Get in touch with your friends and ask them politely to help you get the word out!
Friends you haven't seen for a long time? Facebook friends? Use Facebook messenger to politely inform them about your blog launch, similar to the email above, but now you're asking for a favor from your friends to share this blog to anyone they know might be interested in this topic.
You can pick and mix from the 3, and just continue getting the word out there!
Go and have fun with your successfully launched blog!
