A lot of personal blogs and websites find themselves struggling to get people visiting their blogs, they try all sorts of online methods to advertise their blog, but without a huge budget it’s often difficult to see results this way. One method which bloggers often overlook is print marketing. Print marketing works just as well for personal blogs as it does for online and offline businesses, and in some cases, even better.
If you run a personal blog, then the chances are that it’s based on a subject which you are very passionate about, if that’s the case then you probably talk about this subject a lot during your day-to-day life, and possibly even attend events or clubs based upon your blogs subject matter. This would be a great place to hand out your own personal business cards which include a link to your blog, plus any of your social accounts. This is a great way to gain highly relevant exposure for your blog.
I’ve gathered a number of awesome examples of creative print designs advertising personal blogs, most of them are business cards – these are probably the best way of advertising a personal blog – but there are a few flyers in there too!
Hopefully the examples below will give you a few ideas to use for your own personal blog business card design:
That should have got you inspired and thinking of some of the ways you could incorporate your personal blog into a business card. Print marketing can work wonders for personal blogs, bringing in relevant, return visitors to your blog, and often people that you’ve actually engaged with in person will feel more comfortable interacting on your personal blog because they feel they already know you somewhat.
If you have 100 cards printed for your personal blog, and you hand them out to 100 people who you interact with about the subject of your blog, then you will more than likely get at least 40 of those people visit your blog over time. If you have a particularly impressive design on your business card, or you’re offering something unique and special on your card, then you could even see closer to the full 100 people visiting your blog. So it’s well worth doing looking into this method of promotion for your personal blog.
Once you’ve finished your design and you’re looking for a company to print your cards for you, I recommend using Next Day Flyers, I always use them to print my business cars and other marketing materials and have always been extremely happy with the results. They provide a quality check on each order to make sure that your printed design appears just as it looks in the digital version on your computer screen.
