10 Things You Need to Do After You Publish Your Blog Post

10 Things You Need to Do After You Publish Your Blog Post

Can I ask you a question?

What do you do after you hit the “Publish” button?

If your blog isn’t getting any traction, you probably aren’t doing the right things.

Let’s be real. You can’t just post to social media a few times and move on to the next post. That’s not going to cut it.

You can’t spend all your time writing new posts and then neglect those posts once they’re published.

In fact, you should spend only 20% of your time writing, and 80% getting people to read what you wrote.

But how, you ask?

This post will tell you 10 things you need to do after publishing your post.

It contains an after-publish task list you can use to take your blog from barren wasteland to popular tourist attraction. Follow these recommendations, and you’ll stand to 10X your results from every blog post you publish!

Ready?

Great, then let’s start.

How to Get Insane Amounts of Traffic and Subscribers from SlideShare

How to Get Insane Amounts of Traffic and Subscribers from SlideShare

Every week, you spend hours creating powerful and original content.

After all, great content is the secret to blogging success, right?

But you’re starting to wonder if the results really justify your time and effort.

You get worryingly little traffic, few social shares and only a trickle of email subscribers.

And it’s frustrating as hell.

As a blogger, one of your biggest priorities is driving traffic and subscribers to your blog, but so far, you’ve failed to find a strategy that really delivers.

You’ve tried buying Facebook Ads, “dominating” Twitter, creating visual content and pitching guest post ideas to high-traffic blogs.

Unfortunately, in this saturated online space, it has become tough to stand out amongst the sea of blogs and drive traffic to your own.

So what’s the answer?

How to Get More Traffic from Every Post by Republishing on Medium

How to Get More Traffic from Every Post by Republishing on Medium

Let’s face it.

Getting traffic to your blog is a lot of work.

In fact, more work than you ever imagined.

But when it’s time to write a new post, you can’t just type until you hit your word count and then click “publish.”

Your words have to be brilliant. Well-researched. Engaging.

And getting people to actually read those words is another battle.

Sure, you can send your post out to your followers and subscribers. They’ll love it and share it, bringing in a little more traffic.

The problem is, they represent just a tiny fraction of your potential audience. All those other people who’d also love your post, if only they knew about it.

As bloggers, we assume getting more traffic means creating more content, doing more promotion, and spending more time working.

Those things work, but there’s another way, too.

And you don’t need to write a word of extra content to make it work.

How to Turn Quora into a Traffic-Driving Machine for Your Blog

Frustrating, isn’t it?

You work tirelessly on your content – but no one reads it.

It’s like giving a presentation to an empty room. No matter how much insight you have to share, nobody’s there to even notice.

You feel certain that if you could only get some more traffic to your blog, the content love would flow.

But even when you promote the heck out of your latest post, the following week you have to start the process all over again.

It’s exhausting.

But what if there was a strategy that could drive traffic not just to your latest post, but future ones too?

And what if that same strategy was as effective as guest blogging for getting new visitors, but was quicker, easier and didn’t require you to pitch your ideas to anyone?

What if by using that strategy you’d be rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names on the web?

Wouldn’t you want to know what that strategy is?

How to Interview Influencers (Even If You’d Rather Curl up and Die)

How to Interview Influencers (Even If You’d Rather Curl up and Die)

What is it with interviews?

All the top bloggers seem to do them.

They get to know each other.

They share their knowledge and stories.

And they engage, educate and entertain their fans.

Interviews are the mark of a professional blogger, and you’re dying to join that club.

But something’s holding you back.

You know that publishing an interview with a big name could do wonders for your credibility, but you don’t feel ready – too much could go wrong.

You could be ignored or even rejected.

You could embarrass yourself, trip over your tongue, or ask stupid, boring questions.

You could even land an interview with your favorite influencer only for the technology to fail and screw up your opportunity of a lifetime.

But in reality, most of your anxiety around interviews is simply a fear of the unknown.

Once you know the right way to approach interviews, they can be easy and even enjoyable.
