Are you Blogging?

Here’s a HOT TIP for pushing your Blogs via LinkedIn. blog1

It’s a huge traffic possibility—key word searching drives it. What does that mean? Simply this: make sure you use one or two of your key words in the title … then repeat them, of course, in the body of the blog.

That’s Social Media 101.


All you do is write your lead HEADLINE, click on the paperclip image and add the full link to your post.

Here’s why it’s hot, hot, hot:

  1. If you have linked with more than 500 people, they will be notified that you have created a new post (Sure beats the nutsyness of Facebook deciding how many people are going to see what you post—with LinkedIn—your 500+ all get notified that you have a new article that has been posted—so much better!). Make that title snappy, sassy, salty and key word rich.
  2. Another idea is to get readers to your Blog on your website (assuming that you have multiple posts that give it some “legs”) and hopefully, subscribe to it. Do this by posting your snappy, sassy, salty head line; include a couple of tease paragraphs. Add a Call-to-Action to scope out the rest of the article, including a “read more” phrase with the link to your website where your Blog resides.

And it’s a TaDah and a great way to kick off 2015 via LinkedIn.

As a reminder … if you aren’t on the Author U group on LinkedIn –join it. There are over 7,600 voices with participants from a variety of countries who share info; a question-board is at your fingertips that gets immediate responses from other members; and I love the global voice that it brings.
