I’ve been doing more work on developing a social media system, so this post is a follow-up that should provide a little more detail.
With so many social media tools, the key to my strategy is leveraging my time. I’m willing to invest the time to “get” social media and develop 1-on-1 relationships, but I don’t want to limit myself to just one platform. So here is how I roll:
- Sign up for StumbleUpon and Del.icio.us and install the toolbars in your browser
- Sign up for Digg
- Sign up for FriendFeed and connect your StumbleUpon, Digg and Del.icio.us accounts to your main feed. Then update your settings to publish your feed to your Twitter.
- I’m assuming you spend time reading/listening in your industry. When you find a good resource, go ahead and stumble it, bookmark it on Del.icio.us or Digg it. These are automatically posted to your Twitter feed, thus providing high quality content to your followers.
