One of the reasons you picked the niche you are in is because of your interest and knowledge in it.
The content you present to your readers is expected to be from an authoritative source deserving of respect. This leads to more traffic because of your established expertise.
However, to reach this level of respect you have to start at the beginning..
Potential bloggers often wonder how often they should blog.
To become known in your chosen niche as a blogger, you should post articles regularly, several times throughout the month.
Be focused on specific topics beginning at a beginners level and work your way up to a more advanced level. Also, take the steps to become a guest blogger on websites that share the same audience.
One of the best methods of getting traffic to your website is to blog and blog often.
Write articles on topics within your niche that your audience would be interested in and distribute them to selected directories.
Seek out offline and online magazines where you can be a contributing author excelling in your niche.
Make it a compelling article, giving it a good chance of being accepted and helping to establish you as an expert to the magazine audience.
Spread the word around that you would be pleased to be a resource in regard to any questions related to your niche.
This can be accomplished in many ways, such as sending emails to reporters who have written about your niche, making blog comments and using a service like HARO (Help A Reporter Out) (www.helpareporter.com). This would provide another avenue for you to offer your expertise as a resource in your niche.
Make sure your profiles are consistent.
Whether it is Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or any other social network or your blog be absolutely sure your profiles are consistent.
Take the time and be sure your profile is the same no matter where it is listed. It’s all right to write it in different ways to satisfy the nature of the social outlet, but be sure you don’t deviate from the facts.
Be consistent, businesslike, and professional in all your submissions…
Press releases are beneficial.
When you accomplish something outstanding in your niche such as writing a book, host a webinar, or taking part in an interview, let it be known.
Send out a press release. Press releases are an excellent tool to get online backlinks to your site while also a good way to get in print.
There are many online companies that would be glad to help. Just Google “press release”.
Join up with others in your niche.
Joint ventures with other experts in your niche can be exceptionally beneficial to both parties.
You may conduct a joint seminar, Webinar or author articles, books, podcast or other commercial outlets.
Becoming an expert in your niche takes time, patience, discipline and a lot of research.
This isn’t going to happen overnight so be prepared for a continuing learning process and someday you’ll realize you’re getting close to the “expert” label.
