How do you market your online writing?

Many people want to be writers and a great number really write and publish great articles. The problem is getting readers. It was the same when I was trying to sell a listed house. If you don't have people looking at it, the house won't sell. I have a Google AdSense account through Hubpages, but my earnings aren't great. Facebook and Twitter haven't really helped me that much in getting viewers. Should I be sharing my articles on other social media like Reddit, Tumbler, and Pinterest?

share your writing anywhere you can - also try to get to read your writings at writing groups and approach mainstream publishers too - good luck - the selling is harder than the writing for most writers

I think you need to hire a person who can do SEO for your blogs. I've been writing as well for quite sometime but justbmarketing it on your own will not really make you that much.

I get some views from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, and every once in a while a hub will just take off on one or more of those platforms. But it's usually not because of anything I did, except to discretely post links to the article. It comes when others share my work on social media, and I've not found any formula for making that happen.

@pauliek g+, facebook Although, I have been writing online for about ten years. I am just really learning about sharing stuff and things like that. I never had a facebook account until a week ago.

I would suggest to try and get a mailing list. Add a little subscribe button on your page and get loyal followers who truly like your content. I know this is hard but over years as you keep improving the quality of your website, you would get more followers.
