‘Publishing a volume of verse is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.’
Don Marquis (1878 - 1937)
- To live the life of a blog publisher is two-fold : to be active as both writer and promoter.
- Some creatives are natural promoters - others less so.
- Yet the written word is of more value when read.
- It pays to devote some daily time to getting your words out there and finding the readers.
For publishers, working to develop your reader base makes sense. RSS saves the reader’s own time while providing the publisher with more opportunities to distribute content. Increasing your traffic and expanding your readership base is a good thing.
So - What are our 5 best tips for creative bloggers? Read on to find out.
1. Use Feedburner
Feedburner is a feed tracking service. It is free and full of the readership stats that you need to track your blog’s progress.
2. Utilize RSS email newsletters
Many people prefer email to RSS readers. Why? Email is still good. Your articles are delivered to straight to the reader’s inbox. Most everyone checks their email several times a day - so you stand a good chance of being read.
3. Be Good
Quality content Regularly updated. A solid RSS readership base needs fresh content - preferably daily.
4. Publish Category Feeds
If you write across a variety of topics, why not consider publishing sub feeds of your content. Although this may mean a smaller readership per feed, it will assist in retaining readers who have specific interests.
5. M is for Market
Consistently review your marketing and promotion efforts. There are lots of ways to get your RSS feed out there. Try submitting your blog to every RSS directory you can.
It turns out that every link is a good one.
