Last week I wrote a post about Syndication in regards to feeds and article marketing. Since that is really only the tip of the iceburg, I thought I’d fire off another post with a bit more information.
If you want to syndicate yourself and your information across numerous platforms with ease, another great way is to use your social networks. There are many plugins for WordPress these days that publish your blog to your Twitter account, also your Facebook profile (or business page). In my case, I use Wp to Twitter to auto-publish to my twitter feed. To feed your blog to Facebook is a bit different as you’ll need to do it through your actual page, but the instructions are pretty straight forward. Some people don’t like to do this as they like to personalize it a bit more, or segment their information (ie: with the new Facebook page ability to send messages to a segment of your fans), so you might want to think about the big picture before automating.
Think of it this way, maybe you have a few hundred subscribers to your blog. Or a few thousand. Or maybe none. You’re publishing posts and hoping that people are reading them. Then you autopublish to Twitter, where you have a few hundred followers. Or a few thousand. You’re automatically reaching that many people by feeding to your twitter stream. Same goes for Facebook. Same for Linked In. You just went from none to perhaps thousands. By not doing anything except clicking Publish.
Not bad, hey?
It’s all about working smarter, not harder!
