I'm sure many of you, like myself, started blogging with high hopes of developing a large following of loyal readers. We started out enthusiastically, uploading our best photos and writing clever, insightful copy. We posted often and always had one or more new ideas percolating in the back of our minds.
After awhile and dozens of blog posts, reality sets in, our following consists of only family members and a few close friends. Disillusioned we stop blogging and turn our attention to Facebook, or the 140 characters or less, Twitter. Yes, Facebook and Twitter have their place but they are no substitute for an interesting, well maintained blog.
Rosh Sillars presented "Secrets to Driving Traffic to Your Blog," at Strictly Business 3 in L.A. and in Philadelphia and will be presenting in Chicago as well.
Rosh gave insight on finding your own voice and developing your own style as well as tips, tricks, and tools to build the following your blog deserves.
For me the biggest take away was "Givers Gain." Help promote others and they will do the same in return. So I'll try to give a little back to Rosh and say, go hear him at SB3 in Chicago, or visit one of his links below.
Rosh co-authored The Linked Photographers' Guide to Online Marketing and Social Media along with Lindsay Renee Adler. You can order it from Amazon by clicking HERE.
