6 Super Effective Underrated Blog Promotion Tools
I stumble over many interesting new digital tools and platforms daily. Some of them are new and have not gotten their momentum in the social media yet. The others have been around for a while but do not have nearly as much buzz among bloggers as they should have. Here are my favorite 6 effective unknown blog promotion tools. I say ‘unknown’ as relatively speaking. I think these platforms/tools are a bit underrated among bloggers and entrepreneurs given how easy it is to use them and how much referral traffic they can bring to your site.
Nouncy is a free promotional tool.It is the ultimate free marketing tool to amplify your announcements in the social media and create buzz. If you have an event coming or launching a product, let your social media followers know a couple of weeks in advance about it. Give them a bit time to gain momentum. Then sit back and watch the social media magic happening – creating a buzz about your brand! You can read more about how to use Nouncy here. Their manual is very explanatory and helpful.
Notey is the largest blog search engine. It is one of the unknown blog promotion tools among many bloggers. Not sure why because it is great. It is such an easy way to find top bloggers in your niche and expand your network! Notey monitors and sorts blogs out based on topics. There are 500,000 topics. You can search for literary any topic you can think of. I randomly searched for ‘interior design’ and over 11k most recent updates popped up. I can read about it for days.
You can find top blogs in your niche using Notey. This is the perfect way to build your professional network and keep an eye on your competition. The best part is that you can submit your content too! Notey admins are always looking for interesting stories and ideas. Give it a shot. Why not?

Medium is one of my favorite platforms I use for my clients. It is a platform where people share their stories. I am sure you have a story to share! What kind of stories? Anything from world affairs to personal stories can be on Medium. Medium sorts them out, picks the best of them and delivers them directly to your home page.
It is SO easy to use! You can create tags and search for top stories. And it is even easier to post. The interface is similar to FB: you write and post. The key thing here is to optimize your content for keywords. With consistent presence and high-quality helpful content, you can get traffic from Medium to grow your blog!
MyBlogU is a truly amazing and truly underrated among other unknown blog promotion tools. It is a platform for collaboration with other bloggers. Lots of bloggers think of other bloggers as ravels.

You can find other bloggers to brainstorm your ideas with, ask for resources and even interview some of them. One of my favorite features of MyBlogU is finding media representatives. Yes, right.

This is an awesome free tool to get a snapshot of your Facebook performance and a gist how to improve. FB Insights is the best tool for your Facebook analytics but with LikeAlyzer you can see it very concisely. You will see what you have work on to increase your Facebook business page performance.
Like with any promotion strategy, consistency is a must. If you decide to give one of these tools or all a try, I suggest you be consistent. Watch your Google Analytics statistics to see which one of them will bring you the most of your referral traffic. Good luck with your blog!
