In this week’s Friday Finds, we’re going to take a look at some of the ways that you can beef up your social media strategy. With so many social media tools and tips available online, it can be overwhelming to find the best solutions for you. This week, I’m sharing resources where you can find: 100+ tips on social sharing, 30+ of the best social media monitoring tools for businesses, tips on improving your LinkedIn and Triberr strategies and recommendations for creating a powerful social media bio. You may have read some of these great articles already but (if you haven’t), you’ll want to.
Today’s article in the weekly series #FridayFinds brings you multi-media Twitter cards, some social networking sites that you may be unaware of, an informative infographic on SEO and an introduction to reblogging on Triberr. It will be interesting to hear how many of you are on these sites, use Twitter cards and reblog on Triberr.
Whether you’re a new blogger trying to drive that first initial traffic to your website or a seasoned blogger trying to grow your current readership and/or launch a new site, Triberr may be one of the social networking sites that you should consider joining.
Hopefully, if you’re reading this post, you have some sort of strategy for participating on social media sites. You need a plan so that you don’t end up like Chris Brogan who found himself following 131,000 people on Twitter. (In 2011, Chris unfollowed everyone and started anew.) My premise has always been to approach social media as an extension of networking face-to-face. It’s still real life, only online. I keep an eye on who I’m following and who I’m re-tweeting for. I also try to thank everyone for sharing my posts and retweeting my tweets. Recently though, I’ve been reading blog posts from bloggers who think thanking everyone may not be the best use of our time.
