14 Sites You Can Promote Your Blog for Free

Driving traffic to your blog can be hard! You can spend a lot of money on ads to promote your blog, but who's to say that's going to work? Save your time and money by promoting your blog for free on these 14 sites.

1

Medium

Medium

Medium is an online publishing platform with nearly 100 million visitors per month. A lot of freelance writers post their blogs on Medium so it’s a great place to promote your blog. Both writers and bloggers can share their content and also get paid.

You can think of Medium as sort of the YouTube of writing. It’s free to write on, but if you’re just there for the articles, you’re only allowed to read 3 per month for free.

Instagram

Instagram

Instagram is a great social media site to use for blog promotion. Especially since there are over one billion monthly users on the platform. You can share photos and put your blog link right in the bio section. Also, you can use tags so others can easily find your content.

Once you have 10,000 followers on Instagram, you’re allowed to place links in your stories.

Flipboard

Flipboard

Flipboard started out as a magazine-style feed reader. It is now one of the main choices for feed reading.

Basically, you’re flipping your content into a magazine, which you can also promote on social media sites. It takes a little while to get used to using Flipboard, so you may want to take some time to learn how to use it first.

Facebook Groups

Facebook Groups

Facebook groups are one of the top ways to reach users, especially since over a million people use them. You can create your own group, which works really well for craft and food bloggers. Creating your own group allows you to share content from others as well as promote your own blog content.

Or you can join other Facebook Groups in your niche that allows you to share your content.

YouTube

YouTube

When you post an article to your blog, consider turning it into a video and sharing it on YouTube. It seems that nowadays people are turning more to video than reading. Get this – at least 5 billion videos are being watched on YouTube every single day! I’d say YouTube is a great way to promote your blog posts and get noticed.

6

LinkedIn

LinkedIn

Another great place to promote your blog posts for free is LinkedIn as a link in a share. Or, you can create an article right on LinkedIn.

One of the best things about this site is that most of the users are professionals. Therefore, your content can be seen by hundreds of influential professionals within your niche. What a great way to get freelance work!

I know Twitter has gone a little crazy lately, however, it’s still a great place to share your blog content. You can add photos and links right to your posts. Also, you can join in with other bloggers and create a community. Sharing each other’s content is really helpful in bringing traffic to your site.
