Do you use social media to find them?
Social media conversations can lead to topics that feed your blog.
In this article I’ll share five ways you can use social media to find new blog topics your audience will love.
#1: Expand on Social Discussions
Combining your social and blog efforts doesn’t have to be a one-way street. You can use them to play off of each other.
After you publish blog content, promote it on each of your social media channels. Tweet out a link to new (and old!) blog posts and ask for your audience’s opinion on the topic. Or post it to a LinkedIn group and ask the members for their thoughts.
Their staff then checks in and engages with the commenters, asking for additional opinions or coming up with new questions to keep the conversation going.
Do you want to improve the results of your social media marketing?
Measuring your social media performance is key to getting great results.
You need the right tools to measure those results.
In this article, we’ll go through 3 analytic tools to help improve your results on social media.
#1: Mention – Monitor Your Brand Anywhere on the Web
Mention is an excellent social media and web monitoring tool. You set up alerts based on keywords, and content related to those keywords is displayed through the Mention application or sent to you via email or social media.
When you monitor and track keywords, you can find potential business, build relationships with new people and respond quickly to situations that could damage your brand.
There are many monitoring tools available, but many either are very expensive or have limitations.
For example, you may use Google Alerts to track keywords mentioned on the web. However, I’ve found these alerts are not nearly as comprehensive as Mention. Google Alerts also does not provide the functionality that’s essential to manage and proactively respond to these alerts. Mention provides this functionality.
