Want to Increase Your Blog Reach By Just Pressing Publish?

Increase Your Blog ReachOne of the most frequent problems bloggers have is TIME!  It is not enough just to write the blog post, you then have to get it out into cyberspace and promote it through social media and other avenues like link ups and blog parties.  This all takes time especially if you have to comment on other posts in linkups etc.

So how would you feel if you could reach many more readers by just pressing the Publish button and nothing more.  Sounds good doesn’t it! 

I am in a Facebook group of like minded bloggers and my friend, Mary Gilbert, from My Life In Progress suggested we try a new strategy to increase exposure of our blogs on twitter.  It is called twitterfeed.com and it allows you to feed your posts automatically to not only your social media but to your ‘twitter circle’ as soon as they are published.  The best thing is that it is free!

A ‘twitter circle’ is where you add the rss feed of other bloggers and when they publish, you automatically tweet for them and they automatically tweet when you publish.

Here is a youtube video from Michelle Schaeffer, Girl Blogger Next Door which shows you a step-by-step guide to setting up Twitter Feed.  Michelle makes it so easy to follow the instructions and it takes no time to set up.

So get your ‘virtual’ blogging friends together, make a ‘twitter circle’ and watch your blog reach more readers without any extra effort.

      Leslie, there is so much to learn – I’m learning something new each week but thought this was a great idea. May I link up your twitter account?

      Thanks Kathleen, I thought I would write it up and share on a couple of facebook groups I’m in. Most people think it is a great idea.

      Great! Well really the twitter circle is the group of people that you will add to your twitterfeed account. You slowly build the circle with those that want to be involved.

    I love this. With this blog, a one year old, a two year old and a new baby on the way, anything that saves me a few minutes is a win in my book. Thanks for sharing!

      It is a great tool Leanne however there are so many ways to promote we can get bogged down. I’m limiting myself to FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram

      Hi Becki it isn’t that difficult. I’ll send something via email to you which may help. They are some notes I did quickly for someone else so not pretty but should help you. Have a great day.

      Yes it was something I picked up in a Facebook group Nikki. I thought I would write about it and it really is quite useful and successful. Everytime I publish a post it is tweeted through all the people who are on my list – amazing! I’m sure there are lots more things like this out there we just need to find them LOL:)

      It is easy Anna and I know I find it difficult to get the work out there so this helps widen your reach. Glad you enjoyed the post.

    There is so much to learn when it comes to blogging, and social media and getting noticed. I signed up with twitter feed and have things set up and some of my other favorite bloggers as well is set up in my feed, but I didn’t know anything about a twitter circles. I will have to look into that I could use all the help I can get. Thanks!

      I know what you mean Linda. I started the blog in February as a ‘hobby’ and there is so much to learn and do it can become overwhelming. I’m trying to find some balance so any help and tips on working smarter not harder in blogging is certainly appreciated.
