It’s always good to take your blog promotion beyond the internet and limited online circle. There could be lot many ways that you can take your blog offline. Recently I have started working on this action item and it has showing some great results.
Attending WordCamps and Conferences
A great method to improve your blog’s exposure is by keeping your ears open and finding out the right events to attend in the blogosphere. If you are a wordpress blogger, yearly almost in all countries, there are programs organized for wordpress bloggers called WordCamps. Such events will certainly allow you to socialize with other bloggers and open up new opportunities.

Word of mouth marketing is still a great way
When you already have the basics in place, like good content and great unique information. You should certainly try to share more about your blog or website to your friends and relatives. Most of the great startups did spread this way.
If there is quality, nothing will stop you from being successful. It’s a smart idea to keep your business cards and flyers ready with you to share with potential blog users who might be interested in your niche.
