Start with these three tactics. Before you do, make sure you identify who your ideal reader is and what you want them to do. Buy something? Subscribe to something? Just read it and smile approvingly?
Then, do these three things:
1) Go to Twellow.com and do a search for the people who fit your ideal reader description. Twellow searches people’s Twitter bios, so that’s how you’re going to identify them. Follow them, and many of them will follow you back. Whenever you write a new blog post, make sure you tweet it.
2) Find someone you’re already following on Twitter and who you trust, someone who properly vets the people they follow, and then follow all of them. Make sure those people are also your ideal readers.
3) Visit other people’s blogs that are related to your topic, especially if they have written a post about something you have also written about. Leave an intelligent, thoughtful comment that discusses an issue in that post. Argue with them (politely), add to their knowledge, or leave a “yes, and” post (yes, and did you consider this?) Link back to your own post. You won’t get any SEO juice out of this, but you will possibly catch their own attention. (Do this for about 1 hour a day; 30 minutes if that’s all you have time for. This will pay for itself HUGE.)
