    Hello I recently have started a blog. In the first two weeks I had over 2k views but it has been exponentially decreasing ever since. I need to find a new way to advertise. I was thinking about doing blog cross promotion but I can't find a good place to find related blogs that want to do the same thing. Can anybody help. Any advice is well appreciated

    I have tried social media. So far my biggest traffic sources are stumble upon (50% of visitors), tumblr, and Google news. I am trying to find a place where I can buy ppc ads on blogs that are related to mine. Or find other small blogs that would be interested in sending each other traffic. Also how would I can I utilize youtube for my blog? All my content is in the form of text. I have no idea how to make a video relevant to literature.

    Try guest blogging, it is a tactic to get targeting organic traffic. Keep on sharing great contents that incites your visitors to share and like your content in social networking sites, so that your content will get maximum share and authority. Create web 2.0 links to your site. These are few cost effective methods to drive traffic to your site.

    You should try offer a freebie that can only be unlocked if they share your content.
    The effectiveness though depend how you structure your offer and what niche you are in.

    Depending what niche you're in, you can incorporate social media in. If you're in the women's niche, go into pinterest. If you're in the teens niche go into twitter/tumblr.

    Facebook ad is low cost in driving traffic if you choose CPM (cost per thousand impression) method instead of the CPC (cost per click).

    How did you get those initial views? Maybe you could build on the strategy again.

    What is the topic of your blog? Depending on that you could start pinterest boards and a
    tumblr blog. I was able to drive 600 visitors daily with this method.

    I would suggest you to try guest blogging with fresh and unique content. Make sure, the content should be relevant to your niche. Btw, if you want to get organic traffic then you should spend some reasonable $$$ for the result you desired.

    Try advertising on social media like facebook, twitter etc. Use your blog's link as a signature on different forums and groups. You can also spend some money on advertising or you can buy traffic from sites like SEOClerks, listingdock etc.

    This is how I drive traffic
    Social media- build a twitter and pinterest account
    Blog Commenting - I was suprised that I actually got a some views from them even though I was just making backlinks
    Slide share - Made a few presentations with my link at the end of it
    Youtube - Made a few slide show videos with my link in the description
    Ezine articles - get more views on them than click to my site but they are still views
    Guest posts - works very well
