As a business owner, you know that blogging is arguably the best platform to actually engage with your audience. It’s how they put a face to a business, how you can foster relationships, and a great source for dishing up quality content that can help bolster your search engine optimization (SEO) rankings. You have blogging down, or at least you know how important it is, but suddenly the world is buzzing with “micro blogging” and you might feel like everything you knew about blogs has gone down the tubes.

Micro blogging refers to the fast, frequent sharing of bite sized information via a certain platform. Most often, it’s used to send or receive updates from posts that are based in text (in other words, memes and short Vine-esque videos don’t qualify as micro blogging quite yet as they’re image-based and not text-based). However, that’s changed in recent months and now some experts consider just about anything fodder for micro blogs whether it’s audio, text, video or images. Once the content is uploaded to a site like Twitter, it’s sent to members so the “group” is automatically notified of the microblog. Read More

How to Reshare Old Content Without Annoying Your Followers

Most bloggers don’t realize that resharing old content is just as important as sharing new content. Just because you’ve shared a topic or post before doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do so again. This is especially true of sites that host tutorials, guides and how-tos. Some content will always be relevant and timely.

frames-reframing
The problem with adopting a regular share schedule for old content is that you may aggravate and annoy your followers if you don’t handle it properly. For example, employing an automated share system that creates a shoddy social post with a drab call-to-action, and then continuously spamming that over and over is not going to work. It is ineffective and it will reduce your audience, if you even managed to build one using tactics like that.

There are strategies you can use to reshare content without being a nuisance. This list of tips that will help you do that, in addition to boosting engagement for your content – new and old. Read More
