The #BlogosphereChat returned on Sunday at 8pm with the topic ‘marketing yourself online’. Here’s a summary of the chat, including some of the responses from our community.
Q1. Do you have a social media strategy or plan for promoting your content/blog posts?
Many contributors aspire to have a strategy for their content and blog posts, but mostly post as and when they can. Pinterest was mentioned a few times as a platform for promoting content.
Q2. Do you use any apps to schedule or help plan and organise your content?
There was a mixed response to this question with some preferring to post in the moment and others using scheduling apps like Buffer and Hootsuite. Planoly was also mentioned by a few creators to help organise their content.
Q3. Have you considered setting up a newsletter? Are there any you would recommend?
Many could see the value of having a newsletter but have yet to take the plunge. For those who do, Mailchimp and MailerLite were mentioned as useful tools for creating newsletters.
Q4. Do you prefer scheduling content or posting in the moment?
This question also had a varied response as some enjoyed the ease of posting in the moment and the freedom of not being to a time. For others, scheduling content helps free up time for creating and helps manage workload.
Q5. What social media platform do you think your content performs best on? Why do you think that is?
Twitter was a popular answer to this question, mostly down to the amount time users invested into the platform.
