This piece is from Martin Geysler's collection - Social Media What We Think About it.

 

Excerpt:

 

If you subscribe to a lot of blogs and invest time in sharing useful content with your audience this workflow will help you streamline your process.

 

 

One of the most powerful dynamics of social media is the democratization of information. The more you can read, learn and share, the more value you should be able to extract from various digital channels.

 

Tapping into Web 2.0 to stay educated and informed is a labour intensive proposition.

 

**The tools are free but your time comes at a cost, so the more efficiently you can mange the process the better.

 

**If you subscribe to a lot of blogs (and other RSS feeds) and invest time in sharing useful content with your audience this workflow will help you streamline the process.

I saw an article like this from Christopher Penn over the summer, he uses his iPad and flipboard to do this. I'm using buffer and find one of my best Twitter tools - if I can discipline my self to use it. The Chrome plugin helps a lot. But one of the things I've noticed is that I don't systemmatically read blogs as much as I did a few years back. Now, I look for particular Twitter lists, honed keywords, and specific sources.

How often should I post on my blog?... How long should my posts be?... Can I have other people write articles for me?... How far can I stray from my chosen topic?

 

How do I create incredible content that attracts hundreds of comments and shares? How do I keep people coming back to read everything I publish?

How Timing a Blog Post Can Increase Your Exposure

How Timing a Blog Post Can Increase Your Exposure | Business Wales - Socially Speaking | Scoop.it

Is timing all that important in the world of online marketing where information flows freely twenty four hours a day, seven days a week?

 

Some bloggers and users of social media are satisfied to hammer out a post or send a tweet whenever they can. Others stay up late editing the next day’s blog post and setting it to auto-post at 4 AM. Is there really any advantage?

 

In a word, yes. In two words: definitely maybe.

 

Online marketers and community managers want to know one simple thing: when can they put their information, products, and special offers in front of the greatest number of people at one time...

Everything we know about the newly released WordPress 3.3 | Business Wales - Socially Speaking | Scoop.it

With a new version of WordPress out and about, one might wonder just what’s new under the hood.

Promote Yourself By Using a Different Approach

Promote Yourself By Using a Different Approach | Business Wales - Socially Speaking | Scoop.it

Thank you. You are the reason why I’m writing. Without you, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing this very minute. That’s the truth. I write because you read, and because you care. And, this post is really all about you. Keep reading, and you’ll understand why.

 

Let’s build strong relationships. That’s the thing about marketing. It used to be true, and now it’s the truth again, and I believe that it will be true forever. Relationships is the most important part of any marketing. But it’s also the hardest part.

Anyone who shares their work online knows there’s a risk they’re taking. Photographs are constantly ripped off, articles plagiarized, and even code is often stolen. Despite those risks, there is something to be said for having an instant audience online.

 

Rather than just leave your work out there to be stolen, there are certain precautions you can take to prove ownership, ensure that your work is properly credited, and more. We’ve put together a list of five very different methods, which will enable you to choose the one that is right for you and the nature of your work.

 

If you want to find out if your work has been used without your permission online, there are a few sites that can help you out. TinEye is a great way for photographers to find where their images have been posted, while bloggers can use a site like Copyscape...
