Technology : Grow your website with Social Media Marketing

Grow blog with social media marketing

To most success does not come easy. To reach the top means to always struggle. Nowadays to reach the top faster you have to take others along with you. Trust me when I say that by helping others you help yourself. All the beginners in Blogging world struggle to get the audience for their hard worked website. But in the end if one does not help others there is no way that others will reach to your website. Many bloggers still are looking to earn from the ads displayed on their blogs. Now if your blog page itself does not reach to people its highly unlikely that people are going to find it among the hoards of millions of websites on the internet. True to this sense even if your content is highly reach in itself many times it is still a challenge to get the desired number of audience on your website. So ironically to help yourself earn money by helping others you have to first help yourself to reach others. Makes sense??

Why Social Media is needed to gain audience?
Surprisingly, nowadays technology sits in the palms of millions of us today. Read my article on how it has triggered to have enhanced algorithms in software applications. However the majority of the applications that millions and millions of people irrespective of education, cast, creed use are social media. In my view a Blogger is truly successful if he captures the essense of this sentence, "Readers are never asleep!! When half the world is dreaming other half is still typing on keyboards". Now what this means in sum is that today's world is seamlessly allowing people to reach each other through social media thus providing a blogger to reach millions if the content is helpful and intriguing.

Leveraging the power of social media or other such platforms to reach people is basically the marketing of your blog/website. Whenever you use social media to reach wider audience you can say that your blogs mini resume is on display. There are many ways to get the online users to come to visit your website. Obviously some are free while some are paid. But don't be nervous to know the paid ones because the free ways to reach audience are also very effective. In short the way you will show ads on your website you will show your websites ads in form of post links, ads, media (image/videos) etc on these social media platform because they give you power to reach many people and turn users into readers/visitors.

Just as you spend time building that quality content on your page and eagerly push the publish button don't go to resting period. For beginners in the blogging world it same as taking a rest when the whistle in a race blows. Once you publish the article note that your efforts should be doubled to make it more reachable otherwise its just a ship in a sea floating adrift.

My view is YES, it is meant for everything including the cap of your pen to the piece of code written somewhere on earth. They all undergo a change maybe for betterment or for worse. One such evolution is over its way and is progressing rapidly I might add, the evolution of AI. When we say evolution we generally think its the development for something better. But it is not a necessity that it is for better of human beings only.  I would put evolution in 3 phases future, present and past. The future becomes present, the present becomes past and the past becomes the trigger.


For the sake of making it easy for me to tell the evolution of AI from my viewpoint, I will tell you folks inline with these 3 phases. Don't worry I am not going to increase your boredom by giving you the information on AI enhancements till no…
