What a sense of accomplishment. You've written a pet blog, hit publish and now… you … wait. What?
Where are the readers? You've tweeted about it, put it on your Facebook page and even put a picture on your Pinterest page. Why aren't the readers flocking to the post to make a comment?
Do you sometimes feel your social media and pet blogging efforts are like shouting into a crowded room? It sometimes feels like your voice just gets lost in the midst of all of the other social media "noise."
Here are 15 tips you can use to shake things up a bit and get you, your pet blog and your efforts noticed:
- Know where your readers gather and make that the hub of your social media efforts. Maybe your followers are more active on LinkedIn than they are on Facebook; if that's the case focus on LinkedIn.
- Create a press release announcing something you're involved in to help local pets
- Create a press release that coincides with a particular holiday. For example: "Ways to keep your pet safe when the trick-or-treaters come knocking," or "Why Thanksgiving table scraps are not healthy for Fido or Fluffy."
What steps can you implement to shake up your social media and marketing efforts and make your blog the darling of the pet world?
