Just because you write about adult topics on your blog, it doesn’t exclude you from the world of top-notch blogging. And just because you’re an adult blogger, doesn’t mean that you don’t need to work as hard as another type of niche blogger would. On the contrary! If you want your blog to “make it”, then you’re going to need to work hard, regardless of your niche.
Marketing and promoting your blog is pertinent in gaining a following, building a community and making meaningful connections. There is no better way to do this nowadays, then to use social networking as part of your blogging strategy. Sometimes, the social networks adult bloggers should use are the exact same as every other type of blogger, but other times, adult bloggers can use social networks meant just for them!
In today’s post, we’re going to be showing you four social networks and the way that you can use them to promote your blog. We’d love to know what kind of social networking you’re using on your blog to promote it, so please leave your comments below.
I’m sure most of you knew this was going to be the top of the list. Although, you may be surprised at how many different ways you can promote your blog. First and foremost, add it to your websites in your profile and then you could also write it directly into your profile.
There is also the option to add blog updates to your writings and as status updates in the feed. But, did you know that there are also a huge variety of groups on FetLife just for adult bloggers like yourself? Simply do a search for the words “blog“, “blogging” or “blogger” and you’ll be greeted with a great big list of all the groups for us bloggers of a mature nature.
You can always use Facebook to promote your blog. From streaming your blog to your own personal wall/timeline or even go ahead and create a page just for your blog. As with the content on your blog, you’re going to want to keep your Facebook as updated as possible, or people will quickly lose interest in what you have to say.
Facebook also has some pretty interesting Terms of Service when it comes to adult content, but as long as you stick to PG-13 type information, you shouldn’t hurt too bad. There has been a string of adult bloggers who get their content flagged and their page will shut down for 24 hours or longer. It’s just a matter of being smarter than the average bear when promoting adult content on Facebook.
It’s incredibly easy to promote your blog on Twitter these days with most blogging platforms and it’s sure to bring in more new readers than any other network. Be sure to use Twitter wisely and remember: it’s all about making connections. Don’t forget to follow those who follow you back, retweet really great things that you read off your feed and maybe create a list or two of all the people you think your followers need to check out.
