The art of blogging is something that just about everyone can appreciate. Even those that would prefer videos to articles will likely still enjoy reading a blog now and again, which is precisely why blogs will never go out of style. The great thing about blogs is the topics are wildly varied, with food blogs being one of the most popular.
That said, it’s not always easy to figure out how you can spread the word when it comes to food blogs. While it’s great for those who already have an audience, getting people to tune in and support your blog can be an issue if you don’t know where to start. If you’re looking for ways to promote an excellent blog for foodies, here are some of the best platforms.
Starting with perhaps one of the very best places to promote a blog, vlog, or anything else, YouTube is undoubtedly the king of video streaming. Most people looking for videos as part of their daily routine will regularly search YouTube for the next big thing — which means if you want to promote your food blog, it’s a good idea to start recording some videos.
Fortunately, food blogs are rather easy to turn into a video, as all you have to do is turn your blog into a script. So even if you aren’t used to making videos, it’s well worth the time and effort to learn. To get a feel for video content and how to create some superb content, lookout for uploaded video content about companies as diverse as Hello Fresh, NetBet, Prime and Next fashion. See the diversity and potential, then give creating your own video content a shot.
Working through the same vein as YouTube, TikTok also specializes in the use of videos. The interesting bit is that, unlike YouTube, TikTok mostly handles short videos, with some lasting only a few seconds. What’s great about this is that many of the most popular TikTok videos have to do with food. There are some short videos out there that feature food in some shape or form, whether as a joke or as a recipe.
If you’re wondering how that could possibly turn into a great promotion for your food blog, consider the audience in TikTok. It’s typically the younger demographic and provided you post relatable videos, it’s bound to get their attention. You know what they say: restriction breeds creativity!
You already knew this would be a part of the list, as Facebook has a timeless quality when it comes to social media platforms. It has a habit of pulling in people from all walks of life, making it surprisingly easy to get a popularity boost for your blog. In addition, Facebook is surprisingly easy to use as a social media marketing campaign for your blog, allowing you to turn your hobby into a full-blown career.
The great thing about the platforms above is that you can partner up with various social media influencers to spread your blog’s message further. You can also improve the experience by adding vlogs to your list of content. So no matter which platform you choose, you’ll undoubtedly experience a boost of popularity — provided you’re willing to put in the effort to get the job done.
