How to Optimize Your Blog for Content Distribution

How to Optimize Your Blog for Content Distribution | Social Media | Scoop.it

Good content is great to have, but it doesn’t mean much if no one sees it. You’re putting in all the work; you want all the shares, media pickup, and unique visitors you can get.

If you’re running a blog, are you sure it’s optimized for distribution? Even in this modern Web-publishing era, too many blogs are woefully behind the times: broken social counters, no CTAS, the list goes on. To make sure you’re publishing the right way, check out these tips to optimize your blog for content distribution...

Barry Feldman's article is perfect for anyone, from beginner to advanced user, interested in making the most of SlideShare. For instance, he doesn't just explain how to optimize your presentations, but he also shows you how to get featured. There are also good examples. 


And did you know you could include forms in your presentations? I thought they were only available for paid users. According to Barry, it's now free! 


The infographic at the end is also very interesting.


All in all, an excellent guide to read and bookmark!

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, July 7, 12:49 AM

Some excellent advice from http://www.infusionsoft.com.  Social media can boost your brand if you do the following:

 

Start with the right platform.  Use a social media platform that fits your business and your client base.  Not everyone reads facebook.

 

Use consistent visuals across all of your social media and websites.

 

Use consistent voice and compatible content.

 

Be consistent in person.  Don't fake it.  Be yourself.

 

What isn't working isn't helping. Avoid trendy fads. Serve your community and your customers.

 

Good luck!

 

Aloha, Russ.

But one platform that is often overlooked, yet packs a powerful punch, is Instagram.

On the surface, it makes sense to brush it off. After all it’s:

Mobile only
Based around images
Confusing
Which doesn’t exactly sound like something you’d learn to take advantage of in Business-101. But here’s the thing…

Your customers are always on their phones (the average person checks their cell phone 110 times a day)
They’re crying out for images
It’s not as confusing as you’d think
And to top it all off, it’s one of the most subscribed social media platforms in the world, with 75 million daily users.

branded content

branded content | Social Media | Scoop.it

One of the takeaways from Advertising Week in New York last week is the rise of “branded content”. Brands are embracing the potential of branded content to blur the lines between advertising and entertainment. It seems like every week, I hear the expression, “Content is King”.

It’s true that content marketing holds great promise, as marketers start to create communication that is genuinely worth sharing. Yet, in creating content, we should remember that consumers don’t necessarily want “content”. They want stories. “Branded content” and “content marketing” is insider terminology used by marketers. It’s up to marketers to make the content into something more meaningful.

In the branded content bandwagon, there is too often an emphasis on quantity over quality. Content is treated like a commodity. Consumers can see many forms of “branded content” a mile a way, and it’s only a matter of time before they learn to tune it out as readily as other forms of advertising.

That is, unless we create content that is truly meaningful to the audiences we are trying to reach....

Inbound marketing will continue to account for a large share of online companies' branding efforts and content marketing will remain at the heart of that. To realize a better return on investment brands will have to not only produce high quality content but will also have to lower cost per acquisition. Content marketing automation will become critical in content productivity management and business marketing resource management.
