Blogs Are Social Media Friendly
Having a blog should be part of a wider social media strategy. If you already have a blog and haven’t given much thought as to how it fits in with all the other social media jigsaw pieces get your FREE Social Media Manifesto Here
And if you don’t… well you will also find the manifesto useful as it explains exactly why you need one, how to do it right and how to personally brand yourself and create traffic through social media marketing.
The great thing about blogs, especially word press blogs. Is that they are totally social media friendly. Never has it been so easy to integrate your blog with social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Youtube and to assist in the process of content syndication, helping to promote your brand and business on numerous other social platforms and social bookmarking sites.
The very nature of a blog is socialable. They provide an environment where you can comment and socialise with your readers on a truly personal level, never experienced before. You can interact and bring to life stories through video, audio and photography.
You are also able to connect with people you have met on social networks, forums, or through articles you have written. There is an array of quality plug-ins that you can utilise to enhance your readerships experience further such as the digg digg plug-in which provides the social buttons like facebook share, tweet meme, Google buzz and stumbleupon etc.
The Widget Section of your blog allows you to include gadgets such as Google Connect, Networked Blogs and Twitter Counter to name but a few. These widgets show evidence of your active followers, adding weight to your authenticity and trust worthiness.
Blogs, Plug-ins and Widgets are easy to maintain. You need very little in the way of computer skills and very little HTML knowledge. Blogs are also extremely low cost to run. In fact the revenue you will make in time from your services, products and affiliate links, will undoubtedly over shadow the low set-up, blog design and monthly hosting costs.
Finally if you are serious about having a successful social media marketing strategy for your business, you will undoubtedly need to be utilising one of the most cutting edge methods in generating tons of free and targeted traffic. That is the method of tribe syndication.
