I have written a number of posts on this site about social media and how to use it both for SEO and also to disseminate and promote your own work. I have used this page to bring all those links together in one place.

Importance of Using Images in Blogs

One of the biggest changes that has affected how we use social media is the development of image based platforms. These are sites such as Pinterest and Instagram that only use images as a way of sharing content, it’s also a trend that is seen on Facebook and Twitter where images and video links will get more shares and likes than written content alone.

So what are the implications for when we write content? Well this article Using images in your blog explores some of the reasons why images need to become incorporated into all the content we write, especially if you intend to share it on social media (or expect others to share it)

There are so many different types of social media it can be hard to keep up with them all, so here are a few articles on some of the more common business social media sites.

  1. How does Pinterest work?
  2. Tsu social media networking site (that pays you for content)
  3. Twitter
  4. Social Media Platforms for managing multiple accounts (Hootsuite)

Managing the different social media sites can be another headache and this is where a social media content strategy can be extremely useful and time saving. A strategy lets you monitor which articles you have posted and where you have posted them.
