When it comes to having a blog, sometimes you can feel that you are sharing your views, your content and news but there could be other ways that you could tell your tale. Blogging has fast become a popular hobby and many people will call it their jobs these days, so how can you be a little unique? How can you share your content? Here are some of the other things that you could do that could work alongside your blog that could help spread the word.
Podcasts or radio style shows
An area that many bloggers are considering doing is starting a podcast. This can be somewhere where you just talk about things, or maybe it is a chance for you to interview other people and get other insights in a more relaxed setting when it comes to listening. Podcasts are becoming more popular, so this could be the ideal thing to start with. You can use platforms like SoundCloud to upload them and even try a SoundCloud promotion service to help build your audience and extend your reach. Podcast are a great addition to your blog, and this can be a fantastic way to share a different concept from your blog, or just build upon something that you already talk about.
Use other tools within social media
Social media has really advanced in recent years, so you may want to think about the other tools that you can use within social media to help create different content and build your audience. Instagram has some excellent features now like stories or live video options where you can talk or share what you are up to there and then without thinking about the best times to upload an image or how many hashtags to use. Facebook has similar tools as well, and it can be a fantastic way to add another level of content to your blog and social media platforms.
Be creative with your content
There is no denying that these days people have an option to choose who they follow and the type of content that they want to see so you do need to ensure that what you are sharing is both consistent with your blog and brand, but also has a decent level of quality to it. Many people go off what they see visually online before even reading what the caption says, so you need to ensure that you do what you can to be creative with the content that you share and try and be a little different within your niche so that you can stand out from the crowd.
Create YouTube videos and vlogs
Finally, why not take your blog to a different level and start a YouTube channel that can run alongside it? This means you could sit down and discuss things in more detail, in a more informal setting, or share snippets of your life through vlogs. There are so many things you could do, and it could be a great way to add a new level of content to your blog.
Let’s hope this has you inspired to try a few different things with your blog.
