So, dahlings, here are a few of my tried and tested methods for getting the most out of my blog posts.
Some are free, some are paid, some are a mixture of both.
As always, I encourage you to use the free stuff as much as possible,
and only increase your overheads when you absolutely have to.
The first is IMAutomator …
a sweet little tool that sends out to all sorts of out-of-the-way places on ze interwebs. You do have to post your link yourself each time, but it’s free and easy to use.
Secondly, don’t forget there are plenty of blogging tribes on Facebook ~
Do a search and I bet you’ll be amazed at what you find!
My favorite is one started by the gorgeous Dani McGrath, called The Blogging Mastermind Commenting Tribe, which works on a simple “Post One, Share Two” rule and has evolved into the most eclecticly uplifting group evah!
**Note – It is a closed group, so if you’d like an invitation to join, shoot me a DM on Facebook.
We are friends on FB, right????
And on we go …
And the More Formal Blogging Tribes …
In the video, I mentioned TSA – Tribe Syndication Association – which has just undergone a revamp and I’m looking forward to getting to know my way round it. It works on a spreadsheet system, which is a tad more complicated than the first two I’ve mentioned and has a one time $20 application fee.
Next is Tribe Pro.
As a free member you can manually add your posts and have them syndicated, once you’ve syndicated/shared a few others. This link is directly to our Home and Small Business tribe, but you’re more than welcome to join as many tribes as you please.
I did manual syndication for absolutely ages, but have since found that for the small fee each month, the bliss of autosyndication (ie having it all set up so that your newest creation gets sent to everyone automatically) is definitely worth it!
They now do autosyndication through Onlywire, and they have a special deal for TribePro members AND they got rid of the horrible overage rate. Love that!!
**Special note – No need to get utterly overwhelmed, sweeties. If you use my link to purchase autosyndication, I’m happy to spend a half hour walking you through the system.
Other Platforms ….
If you have a network marketing company, you definitely want to be part of the Better Networker community.
On YouTube, make sure that you fill out the description of your video as comprehensively as possible, and use keywords to make sure it’s easily found by the masses.
Your blog post can also be gussied up and posted on any or all of the dozens of Article Submission Sites on the web.
Remember, Google is your friend. Just do a search!
One Final Note!!
Google doesn’t like duplicated content, so when you’re re-using a piece, please remember that you MUST change it up a bit.
Change the headline, move the content around, edit it a bit, use another image – doesn’t have to be a radical overhaul … just enough to make it appear different to the search engines.
Now dahlings, this is by no means a comprehensive list … it’s just an intro the basics that have worked for me.
If you have more to add, please share your wisdom in the comments below.
What’s worked for you?
What do you wish you’d known when you started out?
We’re all dying to hear!!!
Bliss-ings and hugs,
