Once you are done with the first phase of creating your blog, you need to focus on promotion, marketing and search engine optimization of your blog.

Best Blogging tools for Email marketing

Email marketing is the most important aspect of blog promotion. Google keeps on updating their algorithm and things may take some time to show results. Sometime, you might be ranking well for a keyword but then with the change in Google’s algo, you may find your blog losing it all with its ranking on same search engine for same keyword.

So you need to focus on creating a loyal fan base which is not affected by these factors. In fact, it is known fact that email marketing is the best method to promote your blog and make money out of it.

Key to success in email marketing is setting up good follow up campaigns and using a email autoresponder which delivers where it is required.

You need to create landing pages, surveys, attractive newsletters and deliver emails at a time which is convenient to your users. You can’t deliver emails at one time to all your subscribers sitting in different countries where it may be convenient for your subscribers in one place and inconvenient for subscribers in some other country.

For example, there is huge difference in time zones in India and USA therefore you need to deliver emails at a different time to your subscribers in these countries. Most of the email autoresponder do not provide ability to automate this process but GetResponse does it.

You also need to have a systematic approach towards your subscribers in order to satisfy them and make money from your list.

For example, if your subscribers are not paying attention to your emails and they are opening it, you need to handle them differently than those who are opening and reading your emails. There is no email autoresponder which provide ability to automate your email marketing campaign based upon the earlier response of your subscriber.

GetResponse provide this feature which is called as email autoresponder. They also provide ability to create landing pages and survey along with attractive ready to use newsletters templates with exceptionally delivery rates.

You can read GetResponse Review for details.

GetResponse is the best email autoresponder for bloggers.

SEO Tools

SEO tools are imperative as you can never drop search engine optimization from your task list, even if it is complicated and at times, results are inconsistent.

In order to get consistent results for SEO campaigns, you need to use good SEO Tools.
