A few tips for promoting articles in Yandex Zen
In order for your publication to be seen by as many people as possible, you should not rely solely on Yandex.Zen itself. Of course, the automatic system will show the article to those who have interests similar to the topic. But self-promotion has never harmed anyone.
- Your pages first in social networks will be a great place to post a link to your blog. To find it, go to your channel settings. Below the channel description, there will be an address where people will get to your main page.
- On thematic forums and discussions, there are users who will be interested in reading your publications. Share your channel link to reach your target audience.
- You can also order advertising your channel on various sites if you are prepared for this kind of expense. The more people follow the link, the more chances you have to collect enough audience to start monetizing your channel.
Remember that Yandex.Zen allows authors who have fairly interesting publications to make money on their articles. But for this, the channel must have a certain number of subscribers. The more interesting your feed is, the more people will read it and the more chances you have to replenish your budget.
Do not despair if your channel did not rise to the top of the TOP list in the very first days. The more interesting articles you publish, the higher the chances of raising the popularity of the channel. The main rule of promotion is to post really interesting material. Bad articles can reduce the interest and popularity of your blog by turning away followers.
