    Hi Elvis,

    Great ideas! And thanks for the shout out too 😉 It’s funny; when my web developer Phill Dews designed my shiny new theme he noted the comments link with the text “leave a thought.” So for a post or 2 recently, I posted the first comment: “I left a thought.” To be silly. But to also popular the comments field with 1 comment before I email my list. It works. And asking a question with a comment is even more engaging. Thanks for sharing!

      Indeed! I consider your move very unique. The idea is simple in nature, and that’s exactly why it works.
      You’re breaking the ice and eliminating the silence, so everyone is a bit more likely to follow…

      Thanks man!

    Hey Elvis,

    The promotion is more important than just writing a blog post. There are many social media platforms to share your post.

    You can publish it to any blogging forum. There are many blogging communities around you. Email marketing can be done but not for every blog post.

    Great post indeed.

      Right on. This is why the popular 80/20 rule is so important (20% time writing, 80% time promoting).
      I dont always go by those exact numbers, but as long as you do more promotion than writing, that’s what matters in the end.

    Hey Elvis,

    This is the big question.

    What do you do when you hit the publish button?

    I’ve seen a lot of people, including myself at one time, do nothing but stay idled. I came to realize that this wasn’t “Field Of Dreams” and they won’t come if I build it lol

    You definitely want to come up with a promotion routine. I actually just publish a post last week on how to promote your newly published blog post.

    I think the best start would be to go comment on other blogs and engage which is similar to point #6. Especially if they have Commentluv installed. You can definitely kill 2 or 3 birds with one stone by doing this.

    Thanks for the share Elvis! Have a good one!

      Im loving your post! as there was a thing or two i hadn’t considered previously. In fact, I just edited this very article and included your post for “suggested reading.”

      I had CommentLuv up until last week, but disabled it (maybe temporarily) due to it being a bit heavy on resources — on a blog that’s already relying on countless other plugins.

      Thanks for the awesome share!

    Hi Elvis, wow, there are so many things to do once you hit publish. I try to email my subscribers first, check out my triberr feed and use an image there. I then go on to Buffer, Kingged, BizSugar, Virtual Content Buzz and Flipboard. Flipboard has been becoming my #2 source of traffic after Twitter and above Facebook. I still need to spend more time 80% with promotion. I’ve always been a little shy about that one! Thanks for your tips Elvis.

      Awesome!
      Have you been re-posting your content in its entirety on Kingged? I ask because (even to this day) many people are wary about misleading “duplicate content penalties.”

      That said, I will also check out Flipboard. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Hi Elvis,

    Great ideas!
    Most of the experts have focused on one point. i.e The content should be qualitative. And another thing is that the blog niche should be of your choice.

      Yes — the niche is a crucial step here, as it could man the difference between small-ish earnings and potentially huge ones. Thanks!

    Nice work! I better start learning that “report to social media” thing. It’s one of the best ways to get noticed (and not have the good posts gather dust).
