Blogging 101: Plug Into a Social Network | The Daily Post
Posted by tj6james6
I know I’ve mentioned several times before that I cross post EVERYWHERE! Well, that’s not quite true since I don’t belong to Path and I use Linked In for job stuff only so I don’t figure my blogging interests will go over so well there.
You really can find me just about everywhere, even Instagram now.
Why is Social Networking so important?
Think back to your parents day, long before the digital age. If they were professionals like professors, bankers, business owners and a plethora of other careers they networked.
What’s that you say? Networked?
Yup, they networked. They went to parties and luncheons. They talked to people face to face, one on one and in groups! They had an image to project. They wanted to increase their client base and they did it through networking.
That’s EXACTLY what we’re doing when we cross post to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social networking sites. We’re increasing our exposure so those who are in the market for what we’re selling can find us more easily. They can research what we have and decide if they want to go that step further and contact us for more personal information.
For me cross posting isn’t a do or die situation because my blogs are simply for fun. I can share my knowledge, pictures and thoughts with others who have the same interests. There are those of you out there though who are business people and use digital Social Networking. It could be do or die for you if you don’t use the very simple widgets WordPress has provided for us.
It can’t get much simpler than creating a link between your WordPress account and your social site of choice, really, it is very easy to do.
