Media Accounts

Media Accounts

Many people start a blog and think that it is easy to draw a lot of attention to it. The truth is, nothing is easy when you’re competing with thousands of other people who have the same goal as you, to have lots of people read their blog. If your goal is to write a blog that attracts a big audience, then continue reading for some great tips to help you out.

Blog

In this day and age, advertising is all about social media. This applies to blogs, too. In order to increase viewership of your blog, you should link it to your social media accounts, such as Facebook and Twitter. Many people search those sites looking for information and if you have a link to your blog, you will get visitors through these social media sites.

Controversy

A great way to get a following is to link up with other blogs that are similar to yours. For example, say your blog is about parenting, you should contact other blog owners who have similar sites and ask them if they would let you put a link on their site which goes back to your blog. Then, you do likewise where you put a link to their site on your blog. This is called exchanging links and it is a valuable tool to attract people who already have an interest in what you’re writing about.

Good Sense Of Humor

Try to keep your blog relevant and up-to-date. People want to be informed and are always searching for something new. So, give them something new! If your blog is like every other blog on the Internet, chances are you won’t be able to build a following. Make your blog stand out with original content that has interesting topics which will draw in an audience that likes what they see and wants to return.

Niche

Rather than have a lot of writing on your blog, make it stand out with eye-catching photos. Many people do not like to read walls of text but will stay on a site if there are plenty of pictures that they haven’t seen before. Sometimes, pictures can even tell a story. You can write your blog posts around interesting pictures that draw people in and want to read the text. A great way to attract people is to post pictures that you have taken. That is fresh and original content that people want to see!

Passion

Friends and family can help you out a lot when you first start a blog. They won’t judge you as harshly as an unknown web visitor and they will tell others about your blog. Don’t be afraid to inform your friends and family, but most importantly, tell them to spread the word about your blog! P>

An excellent way to get visitors to your blog is by leaving comments on message boards and other blogs that are relevant to your blog. Make sure you include a link back to your blog to draw in these new visitors. But, you never want to spam anyone’s blog or forum with your link. It must be relevant to the topic at hand.

Random Things

Attracting visitors to a blog can be tricky and difficult, but it doesn’t have to be that way if you stick to the tips that you just read. Start following the advice and soon you will see a big jump in the amount of new visitors to your blog.

    Do You Look For New Social Media Sites When The Others Get Boring? When you have been on mySpace and Facebook for months or even years, do you get tired of them and look for something new? If not to replace the other sites, but to explore new ones?

    What would you like to see in a social media site that facebook, myspace and twitter does not offer?

    What Do You Make Of The Shane Duffy Tweet Supporting The IRA? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-21830064?ns_source=PublicRSS20-sa

    He denys posting it but let’s be honest it is easy to deny something after the event, and you would think a professional footballer would be very careful with his social media accounts to avoid such things happening.
    @ cian who is moaning I simply asked what peoples opinions on it were. I have not said my opinion on it at all apart from to say it is easy to deny after the event, I have no idea if he did say it or not

    • What an idiot. If you have views like that then keep them to your dam self.

      especially if you’re a footballer.

      Why oh why do they play in England for English clubs if they feel so strongly about it?!

      EDIT: of course he’s going to deny it!.

    What Types Of Information Systems Are Involved With Social Media? I am writing a report on social media and come up with answers to the questions
    “What types of information systems are involved?”
    What would be some examples of information systems involved with social media?
    Thank you so much.

    • A definition might be useful (from Britannica Online):
      Information system, an integrated set of components for collecting, storing, and processing data and for delivering information, knowledge, and digital products. (…) Digital goods, such as electronic books and software, and online services, such as auctions and social networking, are delivered with information systems. Individuals rely on information systems, generally Internet-based, for conducting much of their personal lives: for socializing, study, shopping, banking, and entertainment.

      So… Essentially, anything that gives you the option to log on with your Facebook account, Reddit account, Twitter account or so on, will be “involved with” social media. This will obviously include any portable device that supplies a ccess to one or more of the same services, for instance any tablet, smartphone, and so on.

    What Is The Social Media Tool Linked In? How do you use the social media tool?

    • It’s like Facebook for business people. You create an account and add your information, and other people can find you on it. The difference between linkedin and sites like Facebook is that instead of seeing what your favorite bands are, they can see your resum?.

    Can A Background Checker Find Your Social Media Accounts? I applied for this job and i was just wondering if the employer would be able to find my facebook, twitter, etc. I use a seperate email address for my social media accounts than i do for my business ventures. I also have all of my social networking accounts (and the email address i use for them) under a nickname instrad of my real name. Will empolyers still be able to find me?

    • Unless your entire family does the same, yes. They will be able to find you through relations’ accounts.
      If it’s a really important and sensitive job they might even befriend you on Facebook and check you out before hiring you _Employers are weird that way._ Which is why you should always moderate what you post on your accounts.

    What Is Social Medias Role In Delivering The News? Now-a-days every news station has a Twitter and a Facebook. Online newspapers also have Twitter accounts. I’m doing a research paper on the role social media has in delivering news. It’s turning out to be hard to find information on this topic. I guess it’s still a fairly new concept. Does anyone have any helpful information(scholarly articles, books, internet articles) on this subject?

    What Are The Advantages Of Social Media Optimization? I have heard about social media optimization (SMO) but I guess I just don’t fully understand the concept. What are the advantages of it for someone like me who makes niche affiliate marketing websites?

    • Although it sounds confusing, social media optimization is basically generating traffic to your sites through social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and submission sites like Digg. This could mean that you sign up for a Twitter account and you add a Twitter feed on your blog or auto-post your new blog posts on your Twitter page.

      It could also mean adding a Digg button on your website to allow your readers to submit the article to the social media community. The way that this works is that if it gets enough digs on the site, it will be featured on the home page or category page and more people will be aware of the article and will come visit your site.

      Other social media optimization features could be YouTube, Ning.com, any forums, and blogging communities. The advantages of using these are that you draw more traffic to your website. More traffic to your website may lead to more affiliate sales for you.

      Since you are setting up multiple niche websites, you most likely are not using your real name on the sites or not letting people know that you own all these affiliate websites (this is how most people do it). So some of these social media sites may not work for you if you want to maintain your anonymous site.

    What Makes One Social Media Site Better Then Its Competitor? Are there any real, objective standards in evaluating social media sites?

    • I think every site has it’s different qualities, but if you want to get down to it, it’s probably many factors.

      1) Traffic – the main thing keeping these sites alive is advertising & the one thing an advertiser wants to see is who has the most traffic.

      2) Registered Users – Also referring to advertising, the amount of registered users a site has says how many people it can influence to buy.

      3) Evolving content – Social Media sites die if their users are not active. If there are no new posts, there are no new reasons to visit it.

      4) Who’s on the site – I think the best thing Twitter has done was got the verified celebrities involved. They made themselves the #1 place to look if you really want to know what your favorite celebs are up to.
