After my recent process post focusing on my Google Analytics, I noticed how lost my visits are. They were decent, but not as a high as I know it could be.
I decided to just take the shot and promote my blog to my Instagram followers. And it made all the difference.
I had gained 37 new users over the span of a week.
Using social media platforms can really impact how much of a following one has and how many views we are able to reach
Something I think I need to take note of is: consistency.
The reasons why people gain a steady following and consistent views is because of how often we post and how much content we produce and promote.
I want to start posting more frequently. Whether that be posting more articles or posting more on social media, I feel that this will help me gain more readers.
I want to start incorporating Instagram in terms of promoting my articles on my story so then people can easily access them through the link in my bio. I am more interactive on Instagram with my followers so perhaps posting photos related to my posts can help as well.
Utilizing hashtags on Twitter can help me relate and reach more audiences. I want to start posting my articles on Twitter that have to do with music so then people who have fan accounts for certain artists will read them and hopefully provide feedback and support.
Twitter is very versatile and I believe this platform has the most room for growth and I plan to focus on these trends and post more. Perhaps tagging who the articles may feature can help as well.
The one transmedia channel I need to integrate is Facebook. I have way too many family members on there and do not want them reading all of my articles. I feel like there will come a time where I will start promoting them on there. I think I will share this blog when the course ends to show off all my work I have done through this semester.
I also had an idea to promote my blog on groups I am part of on Facebook.
Overall, my main issue is my insecurity. I feel like people may judge my work and not truly support me. But honestly, that is just part of life.
I want to be a content creator so I need to get over this fear to get anywhere.
I plan to work towards integrating more social media platforms to promote my work and even collaborate with some others.
If all goes to plan, look out for me on your social media platforms sometime soon!
