The following are the guidelines to take your blog to the next level.

11 Full Proof ways to Promote Blog to take it to Next Level

1. The more content you produce, the better would be the results


By saying this, I am not asking you to keep on dumping content on your blog. I urge you to write compelling content that stir up discussion, conversation and engagement.

Writing blog posts just to make your blog look fully filled would not do any good to you.

Periodically, produce content and keep up the consistency.

2. Be controversial. Be Biased. Be Out-Spoken


Cooking up controversy can do wonders. In fact, it can actually take your blog to the next level by bringing in more traffic and quality readers.

Be biased towards the stories which benefit you. Be out-spoken and have your own voice.

Do not always follow what others are saying. Form your own opinions and ideas.

3. Go beyond static images and create Infographics, Presentation and Videos


Images are great!

Thrill your audience by providing them information through various visual aids like Inforgraphics, Presentation and Videos.

And some vloggers suggest that video blogging can be a huge deal to get more followers.

4. Host Competitions, Giveaways and Blog carnivals


Competitions and Giveaways bring a lot of new readers to your blog.

Hosting blog carnivals weekly or monthly can prove to be great if done correctly.

Ask readers to submit their posts and select a theme for your carnival. Or after selecting the theme invite others to link up their own posts.

5. Frequently collaborate and work with other bloggers to create content which was never discovered before


Ask other bloggers to join you to write articles which were never written before.

This keeps your content fresh and avoids the redundancy.

Currently, if we see, there are a few bloggers creating great content and others are just producing the same in their own way.

So to bring freshness in your posts ask others to join in.

6. Create and design templates, but let users use it for free


Instead of charging for your templates include attribution in the footer which links to your main blog.

Periodically release new designs and try to link back to your blog creatively.

7. Start making your exclusive collection of graphics


If you are good at designing graphics either make graphics and let people use it for free.
Now you would think what’s your profit in this?

The catch is, You can ask users to provide a credit link back to your blog.

8. Launch an App


Create a dedicated App for your blog and launch it in the market. Make sure your App provides value to your readers. Otherwise, no one will waste their storage space.

You can include features like live chat and social media feeds in the App.

9. Make a nation on the Internet!


Create your own small kingdom on the internet.

This can be done by building a community and starting a forum on your blog.

Provide special advantages for the members of your community and encourage members to stay active.

10. Find out the ‘wow’ factor in your niche


Participate in forums and communities to find out what people are talking about.

Explore what people love in your niche. Target your content around that ‘wow’ factor and this will surely increase engagement.

11. Always convey a single ‘core message’ to your readers


Let me explain this by giving you an example.

I write a blog where I share my knowledge on topics falling under categories such as tech or personal development.

So my main theme is … I am a learner, always trying to learn new and interesting things around me. Come join me on my journey …

Let us look at another example.

Talking about Tricksroad.com, this blog creates content that always revolves around ways to make your blog successful.

So my message to you is that follow your main theme and decide your content strategy according to it.

Over to you!


These were some best tips using which you can definitely take your blog to the new height. I am sure you must be using some awesome techniques to achieve the success, what strategies do you use to attract more readers?

  1. Hi Rohan and Ashutosh

    First of all a big bravo to you on creating and publishing a wonderful infographics post that shows your high level of professionalism.

    The thing that impressed me more is the selection of your topic. It is easy to create an infographic on how-to types of common posts. But this one is the conceptual topic that does not demand two plus two types of suggestions and one needs to mention the qualitative points as you mentioned.

    Your infographics is very simple and simplest to understand which means you fully succeeded to convey your message to your readers and this is the ultimate aim of every internet marketer.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this very useful post.

    1. Hi Naveen,

      We are glad that you liked the post. Yes, we need to highlight the main theme of our blogs everywhere possible. That not only gives our readers a clear idea about our blog but also encourages their future participation if the niche is followed by them.

      Thank you Naveen for taking time to read and leave a supporting comment. ~ Rohan.

  3. Hi Rohan, and good to see you at Ashutosh's blog - one Ahaian on anothers :)

    Wonderful post indeed - who doesn't want to rise to higher levels, and this is a great resource to do that. I'd say improvements and changes are a must, and this exercise will only do good and benefit you in the times to come.

    You got it all right - it's all about YOU and giving value. More content is good, but only as far as they are qualitative. Well, controversies attract people, but you need to be careful and not always use this road of popularity.

    I agree that infographics and videos are great to view, but not every blogger can create them. But visuals are so helpful to the readers. Giveaways are great, but I guess it may not be easy for bloggers in different niches to find sponsors.

    Collaboration is definitely a positive step. Crowdsourcing can create great content. But sadly #6 is only for the programmers and developers. Again, regarding #7, I wish I had the time to create exclusive and original images for bloggers to use. But I do want an App for Aha!NOW.:)

    I think building a blog community is the way to go in 2015. Though maintaining forums is not an easy task that I learned the hard way, but the efforts are certainly fruitful. You both are a part of the ABC, so you'd know what all it takes to maintain one! I guess you create a nation and citizens without boundaries, like we've Ahaians over at the ABC!

    Yes, the blog content has to be 'wow' as well as helpful, meaningful, and useful. Having a content strategy is essential and I'd say do everything on your blog that helps the readers in whatever ways.

    Thanks for this great post and infographic. Have a nice weekend, both of you :)

    1. Thank you Harleena mamfor your wonderful comment as always and very much liked one Ahaian on another :)

      I agree with you, it's not easy to manage forum and taking it to a new height everyday but one thing i can say is, you're doing it amazingly. Aha!Now is one of most successful forum in the blogosphere.

      Thanks for your time and going to share on ABC. Rohan it's your turn bro :)

    2. Hi Harleena ma'am,

      Yes, improvising is a continuous process.

      There are great online tools to create videos and Infographics. With some learning and practice we can create stunning visuals in minutes. :)

      Ma'am, there are great tools to create site templates and design in minutes. If someone has ample of time, then they can surely invest in this venture. Now, we no longer need programmers to design sites for us. A normal Web designer can do that job well.

      Aw that was such a wonderful comment Ma'am: "I guess you create a nation and citizens without boundaries." Yes I agree, tho in real world we have boundaries for nations but this is not true in the case of online communities. ABC is one of its kind. :)

      Thanks a lot for taking time to read and to post such a lovely reply. Have a relaxing Sunday.

      ~ Rohan.

  7. Hi Rohan and Ashutosh,

    I surely think it is important to take our blog to the next level. That definitely does not have to be about money all of the time, it could easily mean building a better and more thriving community of loyal readers. Quality and engaging content is king in my opinion. Adding value so that the reader can take something away from what they read is vital.

    I am not good at creating infogrphics and videos yet, but I am working in 2015 to make that a part of my marketing arsenal for sure. I do see the importance though, because I know that people are visual and that causes more engagement as well.

    Collaborating and supporting other bloggers will build some awesome relationships,which is necessary for success online. I learned quite early the importance of building relationships and am so thankful for the wonderful relationships I continue to build each and every day. We must remember that we cannot do it alone.

    I like your wow factor comment. That is very important to capture the attention of your reader with such value and engagement that they are looking forward to your next post. We must always think about providing value, value, value! Make it about them and not ourselves.

    Wonderful post guys!

    1. Hi Nate sir (@Frugal1),

      I suggest you to try “easel[dot]ly” for creating Infographics. It does not really require any special skills and it is easy to use. :)

      Yes, working and collaborating with influencers will always do something good for us as well as others. :)

      Thank you so much. We are glad that you liked the post. Have a relaxing Sunday. :)

  8. Hi Ashu and Rohan,

    I'm really thankful for what you shared on this post. It's definitely aimed too see bloggers achieve in taking their blog to the next level. That's something I would like to accomplish.

    Your info-graphics have always been impressive and to the point. I do have a question. How do I go about creating one and also where can I go to find images that I can add my own text and quotes to?

    I find that extraordinary people have the power to change and empower a whole community. Thanks for being extraordinary.

    Nice tips on growing your blog. They simple and doable. Also number of them have you thinking out of the box, which is always good when you're trying to grow.
