7 Things That You Must Do After You Have Written A Blog Post
It feels like some people found some value in our last post, How To Write The Perfect Blog Content. Well, quite a lot has changed on the web since March 2011, so guess it’s time for an update.
In my previous post, I have talked about social media and RSS connections so that your blog automatically gets posted on your profile. Auto-posting is a great idea and one of the greatest recommendations is to your LinkedIn profile. Here are few more things that you must try once you are done with your blog:
1.) RSS to email:- This is one of the important syndication that you must try. Depending upon your management program and email marketing, you have the ability to set up the RSS-to-Email campaign for your blogs; setting up “Mailchimp” is an easy thing. Create your subscription list to make sure that you are not spamming, configure mobile-friendly template, and create a campaign to automatically launch your new blog. Do not forget to add a subscription form to continue adding subscribers to our list.
2.) Google currents:- This is the latest answer to current iPad app, Flipboard. It deals with media consumption on your mobile device and Google currents make it easy for you to create a digital magazine and syndicating it with you content feeds. Go to the Currents page, name the editing, plug the RSS feed, YouTube channel Google+ updates, YouTube Channel, Flickr stream along with the host of other accounts. Customize it well with color schemes and brand elements. This looks great on a tablet and that is the next generation, so prepare yourselfwell for it.
Social media that you should consider
3.) Twitter:- We assume you are already on Twitter and would want to take thus further but still would like to remind you of specific hashtags related to your topic of blog post. Creating a hashtag is a great way to reach out to your followers. A great deal of Twitterati follows and monitoring of hashtags that they wish to consider, your blogs containing it has more chances of being retweeted. Adding #cmi to a tweet is going to bring 100 more eyes that it would have been otherwise, because of the fact that mainly people are looking for Content Marketing Institute Twitter stream.
You are already aware for the most used hashtags of your industry, subject matter, products and services, but if you do not, look forward to http://www.hashtags.org/ and find the hashtags that you can make use of.
4.) Google+:- It is tough to deny how this social network from Google is doing wonders to the content shared on this platform. Amazing thing about this media is that there are no character limitations so you can add as much content for your status update which is not possible on Twitter. Create engaging, thoughtful, keyword optimized content teasers with backlinks to your website or blog.
5.) Pinterest: There is no need for me to add another article on “how to use Pinterest”. If you have original photo or graphic of your blog, do not forget to pin it for some extra attention.
Making the most out of social bookmarking
6.) Reddit and bookmarking:- As per the latest updates, social bookmarking seems to be declining but nothing seems to be fishy with Reddit. The latest story of Caine’s Arcade that raged the world was basically because of the reach and power of this reddit community.
However, you cannot expect any love all of a sudden just by showing up on Reddit. Find some established users for your network and ask them to promote/bookmark your blog. Kindly do not overstay your presence there, make sure your content better be good.
7.) Twitter tips:- Everyone is anxiously anticipating the release of this new service called Need Tagger, that checks your content and finds people on Twitter who are looking for content that that you can offer. Make use of the engagement panel to understand the incoming comments/tweets and meet the requirement if the users. In return, the users will click on the shared links inviting more quality traffic to your blog content. Need Tagger notices the shares and clicks that are generated on your link, that allows you to measure how well your messaging and content is doing on the social media.
