Increase Your Digital Clout Day 5/30

Check the announcements

The activity to day is to make sure that all your social networks have announcement of all the others.  For example, on my blog I would announce what my twitter account is, what my google + is, what my Facebook account is, my blog and my LinkedIn is….
There are creative way to display these on creatively on the different social network, I have an webpage which is a nice to gather all my stuff in a single site… mine is called Http://darrencannell.com

 "Are you looking to use social media to promote your blog?

Sharing your blog posts on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and even Tumblr can help your content gain significant exposure.

But each social media platform is distinct with different benefits and abilities. You need a simple process to tailor your social sharing to generate as much engagement as you can on each of these platforms.

Here’s a process you can use to ensure your posts get maximum mileage. Consider these steps and adapt them to the social platforms where you find your customers."

On that site I use the following image to display some of my social network sites by using icons and linking them to each of my accounts.  On twitter you will probably need to do four different tweets but in the end it is necessary to let everyone that follows you will be able to find your webpage and the other social networking sites.

A Personal Sidebar
When I made the decision long ago to become active in the Social Networking world, I started to register myself on more and more of the current sites.  You will find that they change frequently some rise to the top some are hot and some will drop right off the radar.   I lost count a long time ago how many I am actually register on, but each has their own market and its own way of posting.  If you had to deal with each of the social network individually, then there is not enough time in the day to cover and enter posts daily in each.  To achieve my goals of reaching as many people as possible I developed a system which will allow one to in very little time send a message across the world.  When I stand on top of the mountain and yell I want the whole world to hear.  It is possible, you just have to dream and work through the process.  Share, share and share some more…
Now that sidebar was a great speech but now let us get back on track.  Today’s task is to make each of your social networking site know about each other.  Each site has to have a post or entry about all the others, this will allow the sharing and the following of one or all of them by interested people around the world.  My personal learning community has some people who I follow on 3-7 different social networking and find that they say different things on different networks.  Each social network has a different approach and different audience, it will take some time to know what you should post to what social network but we will get better at that as we move forward.

Below is an image of how I let people know some of my main social network sites on my personal Darren Cannell site…just an example of how you can do today’s task.  Be creative, be different, remember we need are trying to be noticed.
