Have you noticed how "drive traffic to your blog" has evolved into "promote your blog"?
It makes sense. Promotion actually precedes traffic…without it, you have little or no traffic, right? Or to put it another way, if no one sees your blog posts, it's like you're invisible and your blog doesn't exist at all.
Promotion = Visibility = Traffic
When students and clients wonder why they're not getting many comments or subscribers or business from their blog, a little digging usually reveals there has been little promotion of each blog post. The demand for your ideal reader's attention is so great now, you have to step up your game and consistently promote your blog. With a systematic approach you will see more traffic, readers and subscribers.
