Well, newsletters worked for me on another site. Problem is, they took forever to put together. But they did bring people back. I was thinking if it were, in theory, a good idea to give visitors that option here, but then if they sign up and we, the writers, don't deliver, it's not that great. But maybe we could opt in (if it's implemented, that is)? Decide whether to offer this to visitors, and how often. I don't know. I'm not very convinced myself.

IMO, be sure to put a pinnable image in your article. Repeat the thumbnail as an image or within a text module, so those of us who use Pinterest can pin it on one of our boards.

Too many times, I find something I'd like to pin, but the only image is an Amazon product, or something that doesn't quite tell a visual, Pinterest audience what the article is about.

In my case images are bringing me some nice additional traffic. Not only from Pinterest, search engines like them too. Proper name of file and alt tag are a must.

About newsletters... Don't know how much work would be to implement this option, but I believe a lot of users don't know what is RSS feed, so option of newsletter could give us a fan or two too.

Rebelmouse now allows you to create a newsletter (they say easily, I've not tried yet) from your social media offerings. 

BTW Rebelmouse is a good source of traffic for me - but to get the benefits you need to post to your social media regularly.

Participate (not link dropping...be an actual human with good stuff to say) and comment on blogs in your niche.I plan to do this more...and it is pleasurable...when I get back to Montana in a few weeks.

Whether it hurts my business or not, I will never go the social media route. As it is I'm looking to scale back to 1/2 days at the computer because sitting in front of it all day is not for me. I don't do facebook, Twitter, Google+...none of it...I just don't like it...

However, I've received good, targeted traffic just by being friendly on other rv blogs....and met some great people, so it is a win-win! I've never link dropped...but people are naturally curious in my niche when you leave comments talking about your own experiences, ideas, etc.

So that's my tip...participate in a fun, healthy way on blogs in your niche.
