Ways to Attract Advertisers to Your Blog


If you want to attract advertisers to your blog, then there are some ways to make your blog an attractive advertising platform. Advertisers on niche blogs are usually companies that are related to the niche. For instance, if you have a niche blog on golf, then you may have companies that sell golf clubs, golf accessories, and other golf related products who want to advertise with you. Advertisers on your blog are ideal because you can set a monthly advertising rate for a certain period of time, giving you the peace of mind in knowing that you will be earning a set figure monthly.

Here are some ways to attract advertisers to your blog:

Post regularly, if not daily.
The more frequently you post, the more active your blog will be. Readers usually stick around when they find a quality blog that posts regularly about subjects they are interested in. Try keeping a notebook handy to write down any and all ideas about blog posts that you may have throughout the day. Keeping your blog post ideas fresh and in abundance will help to motivate you to write regularly. Maintaining a regular blog will also attract advertisers because they can be certain that an active blog will attract new visitors and keep old ones coming back for more.

Write quality content.
Maintaining an active and attractive blog means more than just spewing out a few sentences every week or so. That doesn't mean that your posts must be long enough to fill an ebook, but they should have enough meat and potatoes to satisfy your reader and your advertisers. A good rule to thumb would be to aim for 400 -700 words per post. You may have some posts that need to short by design, which is fine, but aim for the majority of your posts being at least 400 words. Not only will your readers and advertisers appreciate this, but the search engines usually disregard blog posts and website pages that are less than 125 words anyhow.

Get active in your niche.
Start commenting on related blogs and being active in forums dedicated to your niche. Reply to as many comments that are left on your niche blog as possible - your readers will appreciate it. Getting heavily involved in your niche will get your blog noticed by potential advertisers. Not only that, keeping active will attract new visitors and give you a boost in backlinks.

Increase your backlinks.
Increasing your backlinks is the best way to gain credibility in the eyes of the search engines like Google and Yahoo. The more backlinks you have, then the more search engines will give you traffic. Backlinks will also help in your Alexa.com ranking - which is ranking that compares your website to all the other websites on the internet, the lower your ranking the better.

Make your contact information available.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised at how often one may have to jump through hoops simply to find contact information on a website. If you want to attract advertisers, then make sure that they have a way to contact you. If you are serious about attracting more and more advertisers, you may consider setting up a page specificially for advertisers.
