  18. Put the link on your Facebook fan page information tab and draw attention to new blog posts by commenting on your fan page wall and including the link, even if you have the blog feed into your fan page, you can “repost” the link itself if you add some commentary on it, this gives visibility to the link and more chance that someone will see it in their Facebook internal stream if they missed it earlier.
  19. Put the link on your branded Youtube channel
  20. Put the link on your thank you cards
  21. Put the link on your bookmarks
  22. Put the link on your apparel &  promotional products. Instead of your website link on a T-shirt for example, have a link to your blog & give them a reason to visit it. Check out the Jane Doe Inn’s Blog @ janedoeinn.blogspot.com for the most mouth watering waffle recipe on the East Coast. Put it on pens.
  23. Put it on magnets
  24. Put it on your mailing envelopes
  25. Put it on your Christmas cards
  26. Guest Blog and have a byline with one of the links being a link to your blog
  27. Submit your informational blog posts to http://ezinearticles.com/
  28. Put the link on your personal AND your business linked in profiles
  29. Submit your informational blog posts to http://www.associatedcontent.com/
  30. Word of mouth

A bit out of the box advertising.

  1. Put it on bumperstickers and regular stickers
  2. Put it on Mouse pads as gifts for those “special” guests. With a nice photos of one of your breakfasts and a blog link they will be looking at frequently.
  3. Print up mini-flyers and post them on bulletin boards in community centers and supermarkets, make sure they have detachable tags so people can take them home. You may think, well a local supermarket may not have guests that will stay with me….but their parents, children, friends or relatives might when they come visit.
  4. Put the link on your amenities.
  5. Get a vehicle banner made for your automobile. I recommend the vinyl clings so that you can easily remove them when it comes time to wash your vehicle.

  1. Appreciating the hard work you put into your blog and detailed information you offer.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information.
    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.
