Update: How Can You Improve Your Blog or Website?

Not long ago I shared the URL for BlogGrader with you; a great free tool to help you focus on how to improve your site so that you could increase traffic.

Well, BlogGrader has now changed it’s scope and name [still a FREE tool though] so that while it checks out your site it also checks out how influential your Tweets and FaceBook posts are.

This tool wouldn’t be a lot of use to anyone without letting you know how you might improve things and that is exactly what Marketing Grader from Hub Spot does.

Check out Marketing Grader today and see how it can help you increase your influence, branding and traffic!

‘Free’ Is A Strong Promotional Tool

While promotion isn’t necessarily sales or marketing it is definitely vital to branding and publicity and this is where giveaways and contests come in.

Rafflecopter  helps you run these opt-in marvels from your blog. You handle the publicity and promotion of the giveaway or contest and Rafflecopter supplies the widget that provides the start and end dates, ways to enter, rules, etc. based on the information you decided on.

A great tool for authors and book bloggers!
