      Hi A.D.,
      Its cool knowing that you are utilizing most of the mentioned tips. Hopefully, you social media campaign will resonate with productive boost as you consistently provide value to the audience! Always remember to trigger the emotions of the audience with text and visual contents!

  • Profile photo of Sherman Smith Profile

    Hey Sunday,

    These are some clever tips. I particularly like #7 and #8. I never thought about turning my posts into images. I’ve wanted to turn my list post into an Infographic but this something I can add to my plan.

    With the majority of my posts, I make sure I add the social triggers. I figure you can kill two birds with one stone in this sense. Not only your audience can share the current post, but also the internal links inside of that post.

    Thanks for sharing Sunday! Have a great week!

    • Profile photo of Sunday William Profile

      Hey Sherman,
      Yes, turning your posts into images can a long way to fuel your social media with contents.

      I have seen quite a lot of successful blogs share quotes and attractive parts of their posts with such contents.

      You can checkout “Recite” or “Behappy” to test this out. Thanks for your awesome feedback!

    Hey Sunday,

    Thanks for sharing this valuable post. It made me feel as i was on right track. I very much like your idea of re-posting old valuable post with fresh titles for added benefit.

    Thanks mate.

    • Profile photo of Sunday William Profile

      Yes Rocky,
      Re-posting old valuable post with fresh titles brings about added benefits especially as it gives the search engine and the human fresh perspectives. Sharing old posts again should be done creatively, though!

    Sunday:

    I think it would be impossible to overstate the promotional value of social media both in terms of distribution of content and building of authority status.

    I just want to suggest three automation resources that should be in everyone’s social media marketing arsenal:

    -1- Hootsuite https://hootsuite.com

    -2- Buffer https://Buffer.com

    -3- IFTTT http://ifttt.com

    This last tool offers anyone an unlimited ability to craft an individualized and customized social media marketing
    strategy.

    Internet marketing guru, Anthony Hayes offers valuable free IFTTT software in case your interested.

    The key is discipline through an every day promotional routine.

    Thanks for your insights.

    I agree with re-sharing the most popular content or subjects from the Internet. BuzzSumo will indeed help with this. I didn’t quite get what you meant with the 5th point. The “Publish a flurry of posts each a new article is published”. It looks like you missed a word or two there?

  • Profile photo of Judith Chang Profile

    Hi Sunday,

    Thanks for starting this and providing your 8 tips.

    But what do you think most people prefer on social media, original content that you put sweat and blood into, or existing awesome content already done by others, which you found and shared?

    And based on the correct answer, should we bother creating original epic content ourselves or instead, spend the time to find existing awesome content to share?

  • Profile photo of Sarah John Profile

    Feeding or Fueling social media with content should be a consistent thing for the blogger.

    However, it must be done right by ensuring that only quality contents are shared or re-shared at the right time on the necessary platforms.

    In order words, there should be consistency in sharing contents and links on the platforms!

  • Profile photo of Pranay Khatri Profile

    Hey Sunday,
    I must say you shared very useful tips here, I also believe that Re-sharing our old contents can increase social media engagement. I am already using BuzzSumo and Hootsuite for managing my social media tasks.
    Thanks for the great post.

  • Profile photo of Maketta Profile

    Hello Sunday,

    I do believe being consistent in social media and also res-sharing blog posts with different titles can help you get more and better results. Because things move so quickly on social media there is a big chance that the first time you shared your blog posts it didn’t get seen by as many people. Also, finding the right times to share on social media can be important too.

    Thanks for sharing this with us!

    Hello Sunday!
    You did an outstanding job with this post my friend! As you hve shared there certainly are a lot of ways we can fuel our social media content but the important thing now it to know what to do once others start liking and commenting on your content.

    What is the main purpose behind your sharing? Do you have a call to action on these posts? What are you looking for people to do?

    Click to read something else? Buy something? Or perhaps adding to the conversation.

    Then we have the follow up! Always be sure to reach out to everyone who does leave a comment! So many fail at this one. I test it a lot LOL

    This is an extremely important topic, if you are looking to use Social Media to grow your business.

    Great Share
    Chery :))

    Nice tips, Sunday! You pretty much covered most of the things marketers should be doing to get traction on their social media accounts using content.

    Just to add, I suggest that people should consider using Triberr. It is an influencer marketing platform that allows you to automatically share the feel of your blog on your different Twitter accounts and also share content of other influencers within your niche. The paid version allows you to set up the feeds and share relevant content from influencers to your audience.

    While this may be a paid tool, at least it makes sharing awesome content automatic. You don’t have to schedule posts on your Buffer/Hootsuite!

    Hope this helps.

    I find that curating content keeps my social profiles up to date and keeps my audience engaged with me. It also comes in handy when I promote my own content, because I’ve essentially geared my audience to click on content links from my social accounts. :)

    Thank you Sunday. I have already started to fuel my social media platforms with interesting content and in interesting ways, but I am always open to new ideas and suggestions. I love what you have to say about re-sharing and re-posting popular content – now that is a great idea!

    In the meantime, I am reading quite a bit on other blogs so that I can learn about other writers. It is wise for me to understand or at least listen to their voice so that I can share their content, and hopefully they will share mine.

    Thank you for sharing; I value your insight. Great article!

    • Profile photo of Sunday William Profile

      Hey Sherryl,

      That would be a wise thing to know – I mean reading other people’s blogs to learn about them and their voice.

      Doing this will help build a relationship that can translate to the sharing and re-sharing of your piece.

      In the blogosphere, no one is an island, and this more truer with social media marketing.

      So, create GREAT contents and promote them to the right audience. This is the very first step to feeding and fueling your social media content, 😉

    Hi Sunday,

    This is a good topic for discussion. My answer to your question resonates with the second tip you have shared : Re-share the most popular subjects or contents from the Internet.

    I often employ this method and I think it has been yielding the kind of result I want. Yes, BuzzSumo is the right tool for identifying the perfect content to share!

  • Profile photo of James Ling Profile

    Hi Sunday, this is very powerful post.

    Even though I have never thought of improving my social media content, this post has provided with fresh ideas on how to generate and provide consistent content.

    I prefer posting content to social networks after sharing on by blogs but I guess this is not even the best of ideas right?

  • Profile photo of Winford Moore Profile

    Without a good content strategy the social media campaign would not be effective.

    Therefore, it becomes important to ensure that whatever content that is meant for social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter , Instagram, YouTube, Google +, or LinkedIn etc, – appeals to the target audience.

    If for any reason, there is no good results whenever a piece of content is shared, then it becomes important to revisit such content and recreate it to fit in to the impact of the moment.

    Thanks for sharing this piece with us!

  • Profile photo of Paul Profile

    Hi Sunday,

    There are types of content that gives spark to the social media marketing. Whenever such content are displayed the campaign would easily go viral.

    Fueling or feeding social media with content is not that difficult. All I do is to choose my words carefully and ensure that the right terminology is employed for social communication.

    Nevertheless, the place of proper editing and proofreading must not be ignored.

  • Profile photo of steven Profile

    Hi Sunday,

    It is cool knowing of the different ideas of sharing on social media.

    I have been one of the above explained strategies – re-purposing old content into different formats.

    Feeding and fueling social media with re-purposing is very popular with many bloggers!

  • Profile photo of Black Profile

    Hi Sunday,

    I always ensure that my content is fueled by consistently updating the previously shared information with new contents.

    Whatever is trending on social media must be updated for good.

    However, from the tips you have shared, it becomes clear that whatever post or content that resonates well with the marketer must be re-shared or updated for the audience.

  • Profile photo of Carl Profile

    Hey Sunday,

    Your post is so refreshing. I have learned new things about improving my social media content. There is no doubt that tools like BuzzSumo can be used effectively to create and share the most interesting content out there.

    More so, converting posts into videos and graphics or images to bring more engagement is another of effectively fueling social media engagement!

    Thanks for this revealing post!
