In my search to create a fun and engaging Facebook Fan Page, increase my reach on Twitter and exposure to my Blog, I have found some great applications, tools and communities to help me get there. Here are my Top 7 Tools that have helped me with all of my goals, in no particular order.
Triberr has to be included in my Top 7! Not only has it contributed to my increased Twitter reach, followers, and Klout score, but I have met some incredible bloggers along the way. Dino Dogan and Dan Cristo are the brains behind Triberr. They have hit the nail on the head so to speak when it comes to creating a community and tool that is based on sharing. Most bloggers love to share content of other bloggers.
Once you belong to a tribe on Triberr, it just takes a few clicks and the blog posts are shared to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, StumbleUpon and LinkedIn and coming soon Pinterest too! According to Dino, “So far, Triberr has imported close to one million blog posts, and has handled the sharing of 10 million tweets. And the “10 million” figure doesn’t even include posts that are shared via other social channels like Facebook, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon and G+.”
I had been stuck for months around 2000 followers on Twitter. As soon as I joined Triberr my followers started to increase rapidly to over 3000 and my reach is now over 2.9 million because of the great tribes that I belong to. This is without using any automated tools.
When you join Triberr don’t hesitate to visit their great Tutorials on All Triberr, this will save you so much time!
I like Buffer for many reasons, but mostly because it gives me additional leeway to edit my re-tweets directly on Twitter. If you are using either Chrome, Safari or Firefox you will be able to install the Buffer buttons so that you can share any page quickly and easily! You will have to check out my post regarding Buffer when you get a chance. Don’t forget to visit their Blog, which is another extension to this great tool!
Most of us have heard of Blog Hops and there are a few tools that you can use to create a Blog Hop but I continue to be loyal to Linky Tools. Since I love Blog Hopping I thought there must be a way to do Facebook Fan Page “Like” Hopping. So once I figured it out I wrote a blog post tutorial on creating your very own Facebook Like Hop right on Facebook!
You are welcome to join the Facebook Hop we have going on at Women Entrepreneurs too! What better way to Hop around all the Facebook Fan Pages and Blogs while you are on Facebook!
Mr. Brent Riggs has also created the Linky Followers Tool, which as rumors have it, Google Friend Connect may be going away, so this will be a great substitute.
I have really enjoyed using RSS Graffiti on my Facebook Fan Page. All of our members love that their blog posts are being pulled and showcased on our Page! I was looking high and low for an application that could do this automatically. I wanted to be able to post unlimited RSS feeds and then I found RSS Graffiti! I was ecstatic!
If I could remember who invited me to Empire Avenue. I would like to give them a big thank you! At first sight I thought, oh no is this a game?! How naive I was! “Social Media Rocket Fuel” is right!! You can build and join Communities, start Missions, Network with other members, Increase your Klout, Twitter followers, Blog Endorsements and Facebook Likes all in one place!
First things first, like with all Social Networking sites add your picture and Bio. Then connect your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Flickr, Foursquare, WordPress, Google and Blog accounts.
Then you can start “buying stock” (with virtual money called Eaves) and networking with other members and watch your share price go up and your following increase!
As a Mom Blogger I love to support other women in the blogging community. I was given the opportunity to review an eBook and I truly recommend it to all women bloggers out there. Get Famous is full of blogging tips for the new and seasoned blogger.
Pinterest is the fastest growing site out there today. I personally love photography, pets and travel. However, if you have a business I truly recommend that you join. You are able to pin directly from your website or blog and create Boards in categories. If you were to have an Etsy shop for example and you add prices to your pin, your price will automatically be included on a banner across your pin. There are many benefits when using Pinterest, too numerous to outline here in this small post.
These are my favorites for now. As you know new ones will be added what seems like daily! With every Social Networking site, you need to be social and of course network! It really is that simple. Enjoy!
