    Jeff do you put ALL articles on ALL social media platforms? Or do you vary content from your blog on each one? I’m new to blogging and yet to determine a best practice on this.

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Thanks Gavin for the question. Firstly I do put the same content on all the platforms I shareon because different users use different platforms. Secondly I don’t put it on all social media (there are way to many for that) but I do put it on the major social networks where I will get the most traction, audience.and attention. My share buttons I have on my blog are a good high level indicator to see which social networks are sharing more.
      Very importantly you should also be building your tribes on the social networks (eg Twitter followers, Facebook fans etc)
      I hope that helps.

    Hi Jeff,
    Great points in this posting. I am very new to Social Media/Blogging from a professional standpoint, and really appreciate your blog contents.
    I was wondering, would being a “Teacher” and a “Chef” in your blogs ever just reveal your strategies and secrets to your competitors? On one hand, many readers would flock to your blog if the content is great, but is there ever a point that you are revealing too much? If everyone knew the “how to’s” then you wouldn’t have an edge over your competitors, right? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
    Thanks!
    Peggy

      You reveal the tips to how you do it but their is only one you. You cannot be copied and that is what people are buying. Let your knowledge be free but have an ebook or other premium content to sell as well.

    Good morning Jeff!

    I’m interested in what you say about email subscription. I squabbled long and hard with my blog designer to get a sign up box on my site – I won! But is there a way of knowing whether anyone uses it, other than if someone makes a comment or otherwise stands forward and makes themselves known?

    I understand that google analytics show how many people have visited the site, but how does one know the number of email – and I suppose RSS subscribers – one has?

    Many thanks,
    Linda

      Linda your email platform (eg Mailchimp or Aweber) and your RSS system (eg Feedburner )that you use will provide those numbers as core to their functionality.

    I use blogger for my blog but I struggle with the content. I am not a writer, more a doer. I share a lot of images across my social media networks. Also i’ve made a transition from more B2C to B2B. What is an easy way to share content on my blog? This is my blog http://wd-interieurstyling.blogspot.nl/

    • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

      Twitter is a great and easy way to share your content.

      • Whitehousedcrts

        Should i delete my blog? is that what you are saying….
        I already use twitter extensively….but i hear all these experts say that i sould have a blog…that’s why i started it. But I don’t know how it can add to all the social media platforms I already use.

        • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

          The blog should be the hub of your content. Social media are your outposts which place your content where your social media followers are. Maybe read this article to help.

            Great post Jeff!!

            Do you agree, that its better to post your content across major platforms and not look forward to share at every place?

          • http://jeffbullas.com Jeff Bullas

    Hi Jeff, Thanks for another great article. As a fairly new blogger, I’ve learned first hand how beneficial it can be to promote your blog posts on social media networks. In fact one of my recently promoted posts resulted in a 550% increase in traffic on my website! Aside from social media, I also try to share my posts on targeted article marketing websites and specific networking sites.

    Hi Jeff, which plugin do you suggest for subscription to a wordpress blog?

  • Darin L. Hammond

    Man, how do you do it all, Jeff? I have trouble getting things organized to do all the sharing.

  • http://www.agilitysocialcues.com/ Lisa Shaughnessy

    I’m pretty new to blogging (4 months) and have slowly learned to do all of the things you suggest. Great to hear I’m on the right track. I just recently set up the WordPress app in LinkedIn to have my RSS feed automatically post in my LinkedIn profile. I’ll also put links to my weekly Q&A interviews in my LinkedIn status updates.

    Like you, I post my blog post links to all of the major social networking sites, but I use different preface wording before posting to each network.

    I also use Triberr which is a great platform for sharing others’ posts and having them share yours. A few people in my “Tribe” have 15,000 + subscribers so my blog posts get tweeted out to many more people than I could reach just on my own.

    What are the best sites for blogging?

    Social media is potentially the best source of new traffic to a blog. Posting links to your latest blog posts and remembering to make a unique comment on the new content will entice your Facebook friends or Twitter followers to follow the link. This is the surest way to develop a reliable, long term following for a blog. Google+ is becoming more important now too as the content on users’ pages contributes significantly to page rank in the SERPs. Social media is too important for a serious blogger to ignore.
