It’s been a while since I posted. LOL! Client work and personal projects have put this blog on the back burner, but I promise I will show you all what I’ve been working on in an upcoming post. For now, let’s break up the beauty related posts, and get into something that might actually help you.
Being a new blogger is HORD. Not hard, but HORD. Having problems marketing your blog? Need some creative ways to market your blog? There is nothing worse than spending 2 hours on a blog post, and publish it for the world to see, only to see tumbleweeds and crickets in the comments or in your blog stats; we’ve all been there. Thankfully, I’ve been blogging for a while and I’ve found some unconventional ways to market my blog to the masses. There are the traditional ways like sharing your blog on social media or going to blogging conferences and networking, but here are 3 creative ways, you can use to promote your blog.
I’ve always wanted a nameplate necklace. I wanted it to say, “Kimmie” but I thought, why not have it in the name of my blog, “GlossyCoffee” instead so it opens up the conversation for me to discuss my blog; it’s a great way to market your blog offline. I ordered a necklace from Very Last Detail, a company that makes custom nameplate necklaces, and I absolutely LOVE my custom necklace from www.verylastdetail.com. They have them in ALL types of fonts, so you can select one that fits your personal style. I love the quality of this necklace, so this will be sure to last for years to come! Yes, I will also grab another one, that says “Kimmie”

This may not be entirely unconventional, but don’t sleep on the power of a t-shirt. I don’t know how many people have stopped me and asked me what my T-shirt says. I started a T-Shirt line, strictly catered to bloggers, and I proudly rock the T-Shirts from my line, “That Blog Life” whenever I can.
You can start your own t-shirt line, completely FREE using www.spreadshirt.com. If someone purchases your shirt and rocks it, that’s FREE marketing for you. T-Shirts are an all around win win situation. I even created a course, showing you how to turn your Spreadshirt Store into a brand! You can purchase it here. Use CODE: BLOGGER to snag it for only $10! [Reg. $27]
Mugs, Tote Bags, Cellphone Cases
Just like T-Shirts are a great way to promote your blog, having a bunch of accessories, like totes, coffee mugs and cellphone cases are an amazing way to promote your blog or business. You can also just have a store full of accessories using Spreadshirt as well, which you can start completely free. In addition to this being a great marketing tool, this is also an amazing way to generate some passive income for your blog.
These are just 3 ways to promote or market your blog. Of course there are a TON more, but this is a great starting point if you’ve been struggling with getting people to visit your blog.

Great post, Kim! I received a nameplate necklace from Very Last Detail and I didn’t think to have it with my blog name on it. Awesome way to market your blog! But my next nameplate necklace will have my blog name on it for sure.
thanks Bobbie! You ended up getting your name on yours? My next one will be my name lol
Great info for bloggers and anyone starting a new business!
