5 Ways Pro Bloggers Leverage Mobile Devices

Wondering how the top bloggers fill their sites with rich, exciting information? Care to know how professional bloggers drive herds of traffic to their site constantly? For many, the answer is going mobile. Let’s face it, there is only so much new and exciting going on outside our office windows. We’ve got to get out and experience life to craft enriching, intriguing blog posts. Going mobile is just the ticket.

1. Pro Bloggers Quickly Respond to Reader Comments

If there’s a downside to having an adoring public, it’s that they demand constant attention. Pro bloggers know this is actually a good thing. Nothing frustrates readers more than a blogger who ignores their insightful commentary. When someone cares enough about what you’ve written to post a comment, it’s your duty to answer. Free yourself from the keyboard and get the app for your blogging platform (WordPress, Blogger, etc.). Then you can always answer comments and questions quickly, wherever you go.

2. Pro Bloggers Take Readers on Adventures

As enthralling as life in your office might be, the pros take readers places they would never get to go otherwise. These bloggers attend conventions related to the topic of the blog and report on happenings and events in the first person. Apps like CoverItLive let the blogger stream video of the event and add commentary. Readers get to experience far away conventions, gatherings of like-minded people and much more this way, and it builds a deep bond between the readers and the blog.

3. Pro Bloggers Stay Active on Social Media

Social media is the best advertising tool blogs could ask for. These sites keep blogs moving and shaking. Pro bloggers take time to read, share, like and post what’s going on. This does several things. It keeps the blogger on people’s minds, establishes relationships among bloggers and readers and continually keeps the blogger relevant in the industry. Mobile social apps like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr and others assure the blogger is always on top of things.

4. Pro Bloggers Make Notes for Future Posts

Nothing sparks a blogger’s imagination like getting out into the real world. All of a sudden, you’ll have thoughts, ideas and insights you’d never come up with back home. Apps like Evernote and Google Docs make it easy to jot down those thoughts for later blog posts. The Springpad app adds the ability to quickly save websites you stumble across for easy retrieval later. Pro bloggers are prepared with these apps and never let a brilliant idea for a post slip away.

5. Pro Bloggers Enrich Their Posts with Images, Audio and Video

Are you constantly in search of the perfect way to capture a mood or feeling with audio, images or video? Jealous of those bloggers who always have the ideal way to express these things? Their only secret is capturing their own instead of depending on stock images and YouTube videos. Use your T-Mobile Android phones to catch great shots, record real life sounds and video for later use. These images are uniquely your own, adding a new dimension to your blog posts.

Pro bloggers are like any other professional. They’re the best at what they do because they’re always working at it. Instead of letting your away time rob your blog of its essence, use your mobile device to fill your blog with one-of-a-kind posts, images and sounds. You, your blog and your readers will be richer for it.

    Not to hijack this thread, but I want to know if I can have a higher priced rental and I can’t figure out how to find a good, local property management firm… do you know anything about this company? They’re located in Sacramento, CA not too far from my office and I can’t find reviews on them – Sacramento Property Management Consultants, 600 H St Sacramento, CA 95814 (916) 282-3103.

    For sure – To me, my mobile is a great companion that helps me with a lot of my blogging activities on the go. I even capture blog post ideas, shoot short videos on the go – without my mobile all these won’t be possible!
