So you’ve just finished a masterful blog post. Congratulations! What do you plan to do before you release it to public scrutiny? Instead of taking a well-deserved nap (not a bad idea, but not as good as the next one), maybe you can put your network to work about your post early.
Here are some ways you can “prime the social pump” early and effectively:
1. Be real. Some people blog about politics, others write about their breakfast. You can blog about anything just as long as you believe in what you’re doing. You can even be a little over the top, it’s very important that people see how genuine you are. That will not only help you retain your readership; it might even expand it.
2. Be active. Using social media to promote your blog will only work if you’re actually active in these media. Talk to people. Make it a habit to read other’s post. Throw comments. After, try to promote your blog. Unless you’re famous (and if you were, you wouldn’t need to read this), you need to be more active in the social media services that you use.
3. Pre-announce your post. Instead of just publishing your post after you’re done, why not try building up excitement about it? Say something about your next post first, or tweet about it. Always be genuine with what you say. Otherwise, you risk sounding like you’re only there to promote your blog post.
4. Tease your fans and readers. This is basically a more extreme version of number 3. Movie trailers are often called teaser trailers for a reason—they leave you wanting more. You can try doing the same thing with your blog post. Try tweeting some of the juicier parts of your next post, or post it on Facebook. Leave your audience longing for more from you.
5. Get others to invest their ideas on your post. When people lend your ideas, they almost certainly want to know what you’re going to do with it. You can solicit ideas from people by taking surveys or polls and then telling people that it’s for your next post. Sometimes, you can simply ask people what they want you to write about. Be careful not to seem like you’re bored though.
6. Help people before asking for their help. On the days leading up to your magnificent post, be a bit more active than usual. Talk to people, like their posts, re-tweet—basically, make yourself more visible and favorable. This way, people become more open to suggestion, which is good if your suggestion involves them being active with your upcoming post.
If all else fails, remember tip number 1: be real. Never underestimate sincerity.
