6 Ways to Expand Your Social Media Reach

6 Ways to Expand Your Social Media Reach | Curation Revolution |
Social media marketing is simple in one sense. Create content that adds value and then try and get it out to as many people as possible.That's reach. If you do it well then the crowd shares and it travels around the world at the speed of a click.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great Jeff Bullas (@jeffbullas) post (as usual) and Thomas Faltin ( @Odin666CF_DE)scoop (also as usual).

I love all 6 of Jeff's recommendations (especially contest, games and gamificaiton #2) and agree with "matching the hatch" of content to social net (tip #4).

@Scoopit does great Twitter chats (think Twitter on SPEED live). Lots of good tips to learn usual.

I like the idea of curating and sharing content that travels the world at the speed of a click!

Some call it Social Reach I call it Social Link Wheel that becomes your Social Sphere of Influence and that's where the fun begins.

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami

Quick Web Writing Lesson - Curagami | Curation Revolution |

Web Copy
Writing web copy that wins hearts and minds is easier and harder than you think. Easier because tiny changes make huge differences in customer engagement and your website's ability to convert. Harder because learning to slow down and think about things like empathy, using OPW (Other People's Words) and the right way to use acronyms takes practice, discipline and courage. 

Here are the tips we share on Curagami:

  • Use OPW (Other People’s Words) – Trusted sources or industry gurus make excellent sources
  • Use Customer Words – Customers know you listen when they see features of User Generated Content (UGC)
  • Touch the Universal – R&D is hard, takes time and money is a “universal truth.”
  • Cliches – Cliches are another “truth” you can turn in your favor
  • Empathy Words – Use words that create a sense of empathy between YOU and whoever is reading your copy words such as “collaborate,” “teamed with” and “love.”
  • Acronyms – Acronyms can convey industry knowledge, but be sure to explain fully the first time you use an acronym
