    Question Where can I promote my blog?

    Hi, I have created recently a blog related to web development and I'm trying to promote it with social media and sites like promoteproject.com and bizsugar.com. Also I'm posting in other forums and blogs with a signature, and I'm answering questions in Quora but I would like to make it grow faster. Do you have more (free or low cost) ideas?

    Nope. It takes time and sometimes money. There is no free or easy way to promote a business online. I will say this, you won't get anywhere merely dropping links around the web. Every day hundreds or thousands of people are starting a new blog and it's been that way for almost a decade.

    You need an online marketing strategy backed up by very good original content, and you need to try different things to see what works best for you and your audience.

    It takes time to grow an audience, especially one that will stick around and contribute. All you can do is create good content and let people know that it's out there. What happens after that is up to them. If your content clicks with the people who check out your blog, you'll build an audience.

    If you are writing consistently and the quality is strong, you could see about inclusion into All-Top. If you're content has a small biz application, Biz Sugar may be an outlet also. Have you curated a following on LinkedIn? That's a great place to showcase your content as well.

    If you are willing to spend, using Facebook targeting to find your most likely prospects and build an audience that way is always a good bet.

    Wow. I had no idea Alltop was still a thing. Do you visit Alltop frequently?

    Content is king!! People will know the deference between good and bad content... and so will google. Start a podcast and use videos for explanations.

    Try writing about subjects that have very little to no competition. After your articles rank in the 1-3 positions on google you have 100% free marketing/traffic. Web development is very hard rank for though! I have had very little luck using Facebook to market my sites.

    Originality and uniqueness - that is something that will draw your audience's attention! You can either choose a original topics to write about, or your approach to the more popular topic needs to be unique and unusual. You need to intrigue people out there and make them want to visit your side. And with a quality content they will come back
