Once you write your posts I would shoot a relevant video and grab an image and put the relevant alt tag. Then upload your video in the appropriate channels ie. Youtube, dailymotion etc, embed your video in your post and publish on your website. Once published share across your various social media platforms; I.e.Pinterest Google plus and Facebook, just to mention a few. This will increase your visibility online and broaden your marketing net. If you create interesting content people will like and share. Also people will comment on your articles and it is imperative that you engage with these people to start developing relationships. Also people will start referencing you in their own blogs and commenting on your articles where they will back to your content giving you valuable links and building your credibility within the search engines and your community.
