Blogging is one of my favorite things to do because of all of the opportunities it presents for engaging in a variety of social media marketing strategies. You should do more with your blog articles than simply publish them online and wait for readers to find you, which is what I mean by saying that.
The following are six blogging and social media tips that work well together and can be followed by you.
Add this page to your bookmarks. Only Wire, which allows you to bookmark your content in a variety of social directories with a single click, can help you get it bookmarked on social bookmarking sites.

When you bookmark an article on Only Wire, you not only show it to thousands of new readers, but you also make it easier for search engines to find their way back to your blog by creating valuable backlinks.

Use an application such as Animator to produce a slide series video you can put on even more social sites. You may even upload them directly to Google’s favorite video hosting website, which is You Tube.
3.Tweet it. You should make a brief comment and link on your Twitter account, and you should connect that comment back to either the URL of the new video or the blog article. Since Twitter has more than 200 million active users, this is a great way to quickly set up a backlink and maybe get more people to visit your site.
