Unconventional Ways to Promote Your Blog

Y'all, it feels so good to be back!  I went out of town to visit family, and I had no idea that not only would I have no internet access, but that I wouldn't even have cell service most of the trip.  #bloggernightmare  Thanks for your patience!  

I'm so thankful for blogging.  The community is amazing, and I feel like there are so many great blogs out there!  But sometimes it can feel a little difficult to stand out or get noticed, especially around the holidays.  So I've brainstormed three "unconventional" ways to promote your blog, and I'm excited to share my secrets with you!

Unconventional Ways to Promote Your Blog


Blogger Cards ||  I know, you're probably saying this is super conventional.  But think about the way that you use your blogger business cards.  Most bloggers use them for conferences or when soliciting partnerships with small businesses, but what if you used them at networking events in your community?  Check out what your community offers, specifically events with professional women's groups, young professionals, and even events at your local Chamber of Commerce!  Talk about your blog like it's your business, and besides getting some new readers out of the deal, you may even get some partnerships out of it!

Stickers  ||  Stickers are awesome because you can put them just about anywhere and you can find them for just about any price point.  Buy a ton in bulk to share with your readers, buy just a few high quality stickers to slap on your laptop and share with close friends, or even print a few on glossy sticker paper to put on your notebooks.  I'm guilty of seeing a cute sticker somewhere and immediately looking up the brand because I want to know more. I can't be the only one!

Unconventional Ways to Promote Your Blog

Personalized Phone Case  ||  Confession - I still don't talk about my blog in public.  If someone asks me about it, I so will, but I rarely bring it up.  This is a habit that I'm majorly trying to break, which is why I decided to put my logo on the back of a phone case.  You'd be surprised at how many people see my phone case and ask me what Seersucker Sass is!  It's a really great opportunity to bring it into a conversation organically.  Skinit, the brand that so graciously gifted me this personalized phone case, offers personalized cases for pretty much any kind of phone or tablet, and also offers skins for laptops, tablets, and even gaming systems!  I've been so pleased with the quality of my phone case that I plan on picking up a matching laptop skin soon!


Unconventional Ways to Promote Your Blog


I know I'm not the only person with off the wall blog promotional ideas, so I want to know what some of the unconventional ways that you promote your blog are!  Any tips or suggestions for me?

Happy Tuesday, y'all!



A big thank you to Skinit (via Pollen-8) for providing me with a product in exchange for a review.  All opinions are my own.  Thanks for supporting brands that support Seersucker Sass!

  4. I have never thought business cards and stickers. Everyone mainly talks about social media as their marketing of choice. These are great ideas for getting partnerships with local business. I will definitely be getting some business cards in the near future.

  10. Welcome back girl! I adore the idea of having a phone case to promote your blog - you carry it around with you everywhere, anyway! And it's so visible! I actually changed my lock screen on my phone so that it's branded.

  14. I love the idea of a phone case! I still don't talk about my blog in public, and as you said, I think this would be a good way for me to break that habit and ease into the conversation! You never know who you could be talking to and the connections they may have!

  17. I love these ideas! I'm happy to say that I've passed out a few business cards to people in my community, as well as co-workers who support me! Also, if I send out cards to anyone that I know through my blog, I always make sure I send along a business card. I love the idea of stickers and a personalized phone case!
