7 Ways to Build Natural Content Promotion Into Your Blog Copy

  1. Great tips Mike!

    If you do any kind of review content on a regular basis you could create a badge (e.g. “Editor’s Pick!” or “5 out of 5 Stars”) and fire off a friendly email to the recipient of the good review.

    If you publish educational content you could have a certification course, which would provide graduates with trust badges (e.g. ACME Building Course [ABC] Certified).

    Tying several pieces of content together in supportive ways can also be thought of as banking-in the promotion. For example, an infographic supporting an in-depth article, or a press release and a blog post both supporting a newsworthy whitepaper. A Linked-In blog post can support a PDF Guide download, which is embedded behind a gated content form in an on-site blog post. The combinations are endless and the cool thing is you can set different goals and have different audiences for each one – the part that gets “baked in” is the promotion of the main content piece.

  2. Thanks Mike!

    Just ran across a cool way to bake more promotion into your content – ‘highlight and share’. When you highlight words on a post you get a popup to share what’s highlighted via Twitter and/or Facebook.

    A quick search resulted in a couple WP plugins to enable this functionality. One looks like it’s just for Twitter, the other for Twitter and Facebook.
