It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and it isn’t that I have been off doing other things but instead I’ve been nursing a vicious cold for the past 2 weeks with a fever, cough, and a few allergy reactions to the prescription cough medicine. But that is now almost over with so I’m back to working at my laptop doing some… YouTube Exploring Today I finally started working on my internet marketing and on posting a new blog. I was “researching” LinkedIn marketing on YouTube tonight and after going down multiple rabbit holes thought that I would veer off for a look-see at what had recently been posted on blogging tips. Pay Dirt I found a very interesting, valuable, and short video put out by Complex News (who I’ve never heard of before but here’s their youtube channel). The tips are clear, to the point, and he gets through all 10 tips in 4 minutes and 11 seconds. The background music that goes in and out doesn’t do much for me except create a distraction but I do like his presence. The Tips What I found of particular value for me was the info about how to publicize your blog on the different social media sites – Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Reddit, Twitter, etc. – and how to use a different strategy for each. Wow, what good advice, really, I would never have known to do that, obviously showing my newbie-ness at blogging. Here are his 10 tips but you’ll need to watch the video below to get the details.
  1. Write about what comes naturally and you’re passionate about.
  2. Use each form of social media differently to promote your blog.
  3. Write good headlines, peak interest without disclosing too much.
  4. Makes lists using numbers and/or bullet points.
  5. Write 300-600 words in your post.
  6. Add photos, gif’s, videos, and thumbnails to add interest.
  7. Having a variety of distribution channels is important.
  8. Use influencers and amplified marketing to get increased readership.
  9. Be relentless in your search for new publication sources.
  10. Have fun and remember why you started blogging in the first place!

      I’m always looking for tips on blogging. The 300-600 words was new. I’m still new, so any tips are welcome! Great post!

        Thanks for checking it out and leaving a comment. You might look at some of my earlier posts about blogging as well. I’m also fairly new and I don’t get my posts up as often as I would like but it is getting easier as I go along – I’m sure you’ll find it that way as well!


    • Scott LaPierre

      Wow, that was quick Susan :). I figured there’d be a little explanation for each, but it wasn’t necessary. Thank you!

      • Susan Rosin
