I was playing around on Facebook telling myself that I was actually working when I received an inbox message. Inboxes are always better than working!
"Hey Soror, how do you share your blog posts?"
I always love when I get questions that I can answer and that I am actually qualified to answer. Because let's face it....as much as I love answering relationship questions. I have Carroll Atkins and Jason Francis for that!
So How Do I Share My Posts?
First of all every one of my posts is different. Some of them are more tea spilling or gossip posts, even my city Oakland, other posts are more focused on Health and Beauty and other posts are really centered around social media and blogging. So I go about sharing them all in different ways and my goal when sharing is always just a few hits. Remember, few is relative to how much traffic you get. Most of my traffic comes from Google and SEO, but I do get some traffic from Social Media.
Here are the TOP 5 things that I do every time I write a post-no matter what the topic or time of day!
1. Write an epic post.
Its really important that I write something of quality that people will read and take something from. Be it a little chuckle at a celebs expense or learning more about how Coconut Oil is a really healthy product, I want my posts to be helpful. That also increases the chances that it will be shared by anybody who reads it!
2. Share it on Pinterest. (Follow Me There!)
Pinterest can keep a good photo going for months on months on months! I always know when Scandal is starting or Kerry Washington has done something else amazing because her Pins that I have attached to posts about her start circulating again! So when you write have good photos that can tell a story all on their own and make sure they are shared on Pinterest.
3. Stumble Them Your Posts!
I use Stumble Upon to get people to check out your posts who are not in your usual demographic. You never know when you pick up a new subscriber that way. So check out StumbleUpon.com. Its under rated!
4. Facebook It!
Now I have never done well selling things on Facebook, although LOTS of people have, I dont have the Facebook "Buy Me" gift. However, I do get nice hits from Facebook. I mean my main/personal Facebook page. I post a lot on Facebook, I love to share there and my online friends are there! Plus it keeps people in the know about what I am doing! So Facebook your links!
Special Note: I also add a photograph to my links so that its not simply the generated link, this allows me to use a BIG BRILLIANT photograph and then a secret that I love to use is that I love to TAG myself in the photo...all of your Facebook Friends love to see good photos...thats what Facebook is all about!
5. I use Social Oomph!
Social Oomph is a tool that allows me to schedule my tweets out over days, months and years! It helps with that consistent traffic and helps me to stay on the minds of my followers on Twitter!! This is how you build your business, your brand and whatever product that you are selling online!
Of course I do a LOT more than this to share my blog posts, but these are some of the most important ways that I share my posts!....Stay tuned, SUBSCRIBE and I will share it all with you!
