How to Market Your Adventure Blog
Are you an adventure blogger? Do you travel and explore offbeat places and love to share your stories with your audiences?
Then keep scrolling!
As in this article, we will venture out into the exciting ways through which you can market your adventure blogs to your audiences worldwide.
I love reading adventure blogs because I can experience the journey through the words that have been crafted. Not just that. These blogs give you an intense desire to go beyond the mundane obvious aspects of life.
But, just having a wordy website will not be enough to narrate a wonderful story. You have to deck your blogging website and the story with amazing visuals.
So, today we will be venturing out into the best tactical ways through which you can dress-up your website and drive-in traffic. Also, we will be exploring DocHipo’s repository, as it will be your lifeline when marketing your adventure blogs across various social channels.
Elements to Add to Your Website to Make it Marketable
Well, that means you have a great chance to be a sensational adventure blogger, provided you hit the right cords.
Well, let me elaborate upon 5 points briefly that will help you to create a marketable website.
1. Choosing a Globally Recognized Language
If you target audiences from around the world, then use a language that is commonly understood and read.
The universality of this language makes it popularly known as the Lingua Franca. So, it is always best to use English when attracting a broad audience base. Maybe that’s why 71% of the WordPress sites are written in English.
But if you do have a website in any other language then you also have the option to inculcate a system that will translate any language into the preferred one. This system helps as well.
2. Make the Content Search-Engine Friendly
The contents must be Search-Engine Optimized. This will show your website on the search engines and boost traffic.
SEO is a tricky yet interesting way to make your website discoverable. Search engines use a mechanism that crawls through different websites, gathering information and indexing them simultaneously. This index then goes through a process of algorithm analysis, which helps to rank the sites based on various factors.
The first factor usually starts with keyword/keywords that can be short-tailed and/or long-tailed. You also have to make sure that you maintain a balance and not end up over-doing it.
The images that you put along with your blog articles must also be calibrated with keywords in their AltText. Most of the sentences need to be with-in 20 words. Also, you must avoid passive voice in your overall writing.
Try to add internal and external links because this will establish authority.
3. Add Stunning Banners
As mentioned earlier, a website that does not have any images or other attractive visuals always looks boring.
It is of utmost importance that you add beautiful graphics that can inspire your viewers and guide their imagination while reading your blogs.
I know getting an instant visual for a website can be tough. But, with DocHipo, you can get tons of exciting and fun templates.
You can download as many as you want and use them in any way you like. Also, you can customize them as per your choice. So, let me share a banner visual that can give you ideas of how you can make your website look fantastic.
To make things more exciting, let me share a quick story.
I remember meeting a man, who shared with me an exciting experience about a bike challenge which he undertook. I was indeed amazed to know that he rode his bike from Bristol to London which is approximately 269 KM. Seeing me awestruck and mesmerized by his episode, he suddenly revealed to me the reason behind this experience.
One frenzied night, when he was gazing at the star-filled sky and thinking about human-will, he suddenly wanted to challenge himself and test his capabilities. So, he decided to travel as far as he could on his bike.
Now, if I want to add this story to my blog, I would be needing an amazing blog banner. So I choose this banner from DocHipo:
I just made some changes and customized it according to my write-up so that it can visually represent want I imagined:
You can also change the picture, add other graphic elements and make it look exactly the way you want.
4. Adding Other Graphics Element
When you add graphic elements like Text Frames on your blog, it will make the website more interactive. You can add them in various spaces on the website, like using them to adorn the titles. You can also use them to embellish the overlook and feel of the website.
So, let’s check some text frames from DocHipo:
If you’re maintaining a daily online journal, you can always use text frames like this to embellish your contents:
The more colorful your website will look, the more engaging it will become.
5. Add Interesting Videos
If possible try recording your adventures in a video camera, edit and upload it on Youtube. In this way you can add the videos on your blogs, making it look even more interesting.
A blog consisting of texts, accompanied by images, graphic elements and interesting videos, will attract traffic and retain their attention.
Every enthusiastic reader loves to engage in blogs which have a nice story to tell, buttressed by interactive elements.
A good video that lacks a stunning thumbnail, will not be able to attract the attention of the viewers. Hence it is always best to create an attractive thumbnail instead of settling for the recommended once from the video itself.
For YouTube Thumbnails that specifically deals with adventure, travel, and life, DocHipo is the best go-to place. Let’s check some of the Thumbnail templates that you can customize and use it for your videos:
Although this is not a necessary step, adding videos will always increase the appeal of the website.
Best Ways to Market Your Adventure Blogs
This is the most exciting part of being an adventure blogger. After all, now you will be spreading your adventures and experiences everywhere to every single person, craving to know the secrets that nature hides.
So once you feel confident about your website, you have to start strategizing the ways through which you will market it.
The best way to do this is to look for the right channels. Although there are many social media platforms that can be extremely useful for your strategies, it is always recommended that you start with few spaces. In my opinion, start with Instagram, because this platform is quite personal.
When we talk about Instagram, people use it to share their thoughts, and experiences pictorially. Moreover, images can be the best way to attract people to your write-ups.
So, to ace the marketing game on this social media platform, you have to reach their hearts. Your stories need to emotionally touch their lives, making them aspire to want more.
This is possible when you share your blog link along with a nice visual post. Also, promos and inspiring visuals that inform the viewers about a new blog post is an excellent way to promote your website.
At DocHipo, you will get visuals that can stun the eyes of the onlooker, who is searching for some excitement.
Blogging is a very personal thing, so it is always best to promote it via your personal account. This just makes it more authentic and also relatable. You can create a business page as well so that you can invite members.
