Today’s Assignment: pick one social network you’ll use to help grow your blog and connect it to your site. Then, outline a 30-day plan for how you’ll use it.
Googling “drive your business with social media” generates more links than imaginable. What if I don’t have a business? What if I just have “social” connections through my website/blog or FaceBook or Twitter or Google+ or LinkedIn or Instagram or RVillage or other social media accounts?
Back to the assignment. To gain an understanding of today’s assignment, I highly recommend reading the details provide by WordPress Happiness Engineers (click here) for that.
I am already using the share feature on my posts so readers can easily share my posts on their media sites. I publicize my post on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. And I have incorporated a couple of side bar widgets that link to some of my other social media sites.
My 30-Day Plan
At this point, I am undecided if I want to use Facebook or Google+ as my focus for the next 30 days. I have a pretty decent group of followers on both. I get more interaction on Facebook but I prefer to use Google+. I also have some configuration to complete on Google+. Here is my 30 day plan –
- Complete the configure on my Google+ “Tales From The WagginMaster”
- Share other blogger’s post on Google+ at least 3 times per week
- Conduct 2 polls to determine the follower social media preference and content preference
One thing I noticed from reviewing my WordPress Stats – I get lots of page views and few likes and comments. It would be interesting to compare this stat with other bloggers. I realize the spike in January is due to my participation in Blogging101: From Zero to Hero.
As I stated in Analytics. Did You Get Your 2014 In Review?, I am not a numbers person. I do not write for the sole purpose of increasing readership. I write for enjoyment, to communicate with family and friends and to be an inspiration to others who may be interested in full-time RVing.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
