Partnering, the Key to Social Web Success
Partnering with other blogggers in your niche is the single most effective tactics you can use to grow your online influence and business. If you have made it a part of your business marketing strategy to build relationships with remarkable bloggers, Feedly is a great tool to stay on top of their updates. For today’s lesson I prepared the following screencast video to get you started.
Feedly’s free service bolts onto the Firefox browser through a plugin and arranges all of your blog rss feeds into an easy to read, magazine-like interface. You can create groups to organize your feeds and it is in these groups where the power of Feedly as an online networking tool shines.
Organize a group of 3 to 5 bloggers who commit to supporting one another through guest posts, blog comments, idea exchanges and promotion through social media. The best team members are those who sell a complimentary product or service to the same target customer. Complimentary business owners will find it easy to contribute to the collective, as their expertise will be naturally relevant.
Once you have a few good social media folk in your personal network add their blog feeds to a Feedly group to monitor new posts and jump into discussions that draw your interest by adding comments; promoting great posts on Twitter and pointing your Facebook friends in your partner’s direction.
