1. YouTube

We often pass over YouTube when thinking about marketing our blogs. It’s one of the biggest social media platforms out there, with ads playing before every few videos. Why can’t one of those ads be yours?

“Most businesses start with at least $10 per day for local campaigns.”

You only pay when a viewer watches your ad for at least 30 seconds or engages with it. It’s a marketing tool that’s worth the price. Check out how Missouri Star Quilt Co. used YouTube ads to build their business.

2. Twitter

“Twitter is the #1 platform for discovery.”

That’s the first thing you see when you visit Twitter’s business page. Through hashtags, retweets, and buzzing topics, you can efficiently market your blog with the latest trends in mind. Unlike many other social media platforms, Twitter happens in real-time.

Once you tweet about your blog, people will see it immediately. It isn’t the social media platform where you have to wait weeks to see a growth in page views. It’s immediate. If you’re considering buying ad space for your blog, visit Twitter’s business page.

3. TikTok

TikTok might not seem like the social media tool for marketing your blog, but it is. This social media platform has exploded. Viewers spend hours a day on this site. The company Guess launched a marketing campaign on TikTok and saw their company grow before their eyes. Your blog could be next.

In-feed ads keep viewers engaged without realizing they’re watching an ad. It’s the perfect way to market your blog. You get 60 seconds to market your blog. Make it count. If you’re interested in purchasing ad space with TikTok, visit TikTok‘s business page.
