If you build your audience with tweeting, you’ll be able to curate content and make friends. Let’s talk about it.
*This is a post just for a demonstration at WordCamp Los Angeles’ Beginner Day.
It’s not about you.
If you have a business, you should have a Facebook Page and a Public Twitter Account. Optionally, you can share posts on Pinterest and Google Plus as well as your LinkedIn Company Page or personal profile.
Sharing your content is good but you should also share content from your audience. We call this content curation.
No one likes a person who only shares their own stuff. It’s like a person at a party who only talks about themselves.
So, You’re Blogging — Now What?
It’s very important to not just blog but to share you blog post on your social networking sites. People aren’t magically going to know that you wrote a new post. Unless, of course, you have people already subscribing to your RSS feed or email marketing program.
What should I blog about?
You should blog about your business, your passion, and the things that make you — well, you. No one wants a hard sell. If you’re a realtor, you may also play golf. If you’re a website developer, you may also attend Trivia Nights at your pub. Regardless, talk about your business and your hobbies.
