Hey Guys! So recently I was asked by this blogger for three pieces of advice on gaining a loyal following. I didn’t know how to answer this question in a short, sweet and simple way. So I decided to write an entire post on this. I hope you find these tips helpful!…
1. Follow Tags
As you can see in the image below in the red box you can add tags and follow them. Normally I only follow the beauty tag which means when someone publishes a post and tags it in the beauty category I can see it in order of most recently to least recently published post. This is an awesome way for you to find bloggers in your ‘niche’ who you can engage with.
2. Be consistent
If you’re blogging only once a month it is unlikely that you will gain a steady and consistent following. There definitely are some bloggers who are not consistent and still gain a loyal following. Normally this only happens when they have already grown to be a pretty well known blogger.
3. Promote Yourself
You can promote your blog on many different social media platforms. Personally I like to use Pinterest and Instagram. On both these sites I put the link to my blog in my bio which helps my blog gain more traffic and therefore more followers.
All of these tips will bring more people to your blog. The more people you have viewing your posts, the more likes, comments, followers, etc. Ultimately each blogger will grow at a different rate though and it will take time so just be patient.
What’s your favourite social media platform, that you use to promote your blog?
