It surprised me that so many people are still dragging their feet when it comes to posting to Social Media Networks. Social Media networking is to traffic what Google rankings were in the early days of Internet Marketing.
I’m sure you’d agree if you were around to see the early days of Getting Ranked 1st On Google! 🙂
I think there’s a good reason for the dragging feet issue facing most marketers – time or lack of it. Posting to Social media networks take way too long to do on a consistent basis and consistency is what makes great social media marketers.
The other reason lack of accountability. What and who is really coming to you from a Facebook post or a tweet? Do you really know, is it easy to measure the effectiveness of a single post?
In the past I suffered from these same issues but I think I’ve come up with a simple system that makes posting super quick and easy to track.
Here what’ I’m doing:
1. I Only post to My WordPress Blogs
2 I use our FullContact Press Software to automatically post to 50 Social networks.
It’s all automated, brings traffic back to my WordPress site and it’s easy to track. If you’d like to see it in action you’ll find this post on my FullContactSites Facebook Page ( and a bunch of other social media sites like LinkedIn, Twitter, Plurk, Slashdot, Google+) and all I had to do was make a post.
Stay tuned and I’ll share a simple way to track all these posts.
