Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Twitter, all these social sites. You can drive a lot of traffic, But most of you have made them pay for this traffic. You can get traffic organically without having to pay for it. Even if you don’t have a lot of followers. Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel And today I’ll break down five unused social media hacks that will get more traffic to your blog post ( calming music ).
The first tip I have is you should use Instagram to promote your blog post.
Yes, a lot of people use Instagram Products like promote teeth, whitening because thing I think my teeth look white in this video, but nobody uses Instagram to promote blog posts. We tested that a lot. What we found is when you post pictures and tell people, go to your bio and click if it is related to educational information that will help you Humans very likely will, When you tell people to go to your bio, to buy a product, I probably won’t, But If it’s educational, blog post-related information.
We got a lot of engagement on Instagram
It’S unorthodox, but it works And the more followers you have, The more traffic you get from this strategy over time, And that leads me to my second tip. My second tip is to use Snapchat and Instagram stories to generate more traffic to your blog.
Here is what I mean:
Say you have over 10,000 followers on Instagram? You can make stories, tell people to wipe up right if you ever follow Gary V. You always see that you know icons or GIFs or pictures of him like going up, swiping up swiping up And people swipe up and they go and listen to his podcast or His blog post or whatever he has
It’S a very effective strategy. Tim Sykes does something similar.
So with your Instagram stories or on Snapchat, Tell people to swipe up go over to your blog. If you want more free amazing information, High engagement, it’s unorthodox, but believe me, it works just give it a try.
The third tip I have for you is to use live video. So there’s Facebook Live, there’s YouTube Live, There’s Instagram Live. When you are in these videos. You will get a lot more engagement.
If you do not believe me, just go to your facebook and post a link on any website, It could be your website, it could be a blog post, You won’t find it.
People will click on it.
You’Ll get very little likes very little stocks very little engagement, But if you did a live video on Facebook or YouTube or Instagram, You get a lot more engagement.
So when you do a live, video and people watch You’ve watched hundreds or thousands of people, then you tell them to go to your website to click. Look at your blog, learn from it and even describe what they will learn. You are much more likely to do it.
You are super dedicated. When you go to your blog post, They are more likely to comment, share the post and come back to your side in the future. That also brings me to my next tip what to use videos for promote your blog post
I’M not just talking about live video, But you can also upload videos to Facebook or YouTube
Videos get a lot more engagement on Facebook and Instagram than say an image based post or a text based post. So when you make a video and you tell people hey the way, i want to teach you x, y and z today, as I teach on social media and when I get in touch say: hey everyone Check out this blog post or this url. Here you end up learning, x, y and z and make sure you are using a shortened link Because you don’t want to have a long connection.
How are you going to neilpatel.com/blog/SEO-socialmedia-more-traffic-today
How that is too long, but you can make a shortened link like tools like Bitly and what you will find is people watching your videos will start going to your side and it’s a lot easier, because it’s your videos will get a lot more engagement than any Text you share.
And last but not least, Quora Quora is one of the most popular websites on the internet, mainly in English. There are questions on every single topic for every single industry, whether B2B B2C Go. There respond to people. If you respond to people with a paragraph or two super in depth – and you link it to your blog post that goes deeper into this topic, They can generate a lot of traffic.
We did this all day on Quora and it has made us hundreds and thousands of views per month during our summit. You know I’ve run out of time, so I can’t to do it these days, but I should come back to it. One of the best content marketing strategies I’ve ever used –
