Give a review of what they will get to read on your blog, subscribe them with settings and give them offers on best blog articles. Thus, optimising the blog with email on every step is important.

# Include contacts for clicks, visits or form submissions:

 Use a Smart list to automatically update your contacts. Use a high threshold for clicks on emails, visits on your websites, for social media post, or for form submissions. Since these contacts are engaged with you they will be able to share your content with others on social media or Twitter.

# Provide topic workflows with content offer, downloads or page views:

If you are creating content on industry related topics then provide content marketing offers related to it like eBooks, kits and webinars and post blogs and emails workflows on these topics. You can also add pop-up forms, lead flows or add-ons to attract customers for your content workflow.
