Recycle Your Old Blogs By Tweeting Them!

I Tweet My Blogs, Do You?

 

 

Now that Twitter and Bing are married, your micro blogging can actually score you some major SEO brownie points.

 

I tweet my blogs to increase my web presence.  I simply go over to my outside AR blog roll on a regular basis, pull up an old post, shorten its browser address by using the bit.ly service, then Tweet it with an enticing by-line.  I go back afterwards and analyze my statistics (Bit.ly will show you exactly how many people have clicked on that particular link). It works!  Here is an example:  Price it Well. Stage it well. Watch it Sell! http://bit.ly/E2xqT #RealEstate #p2

Bing & Twitter married?

 

Now that your Twitter presence gives you Bing exposure, it’s a shame not to use it to drive traffic to your ActiveRain blog and to your website.  BTW, if your blog roll is still called “Annie’s Blog” (or Suzy, or Stan), it’s time you change it to let people know what you do and where.  Mine is Myrtle Beach Real Estate by Mirela Monte.  Yours should certainly denote your area of expertise and your location.

 

How do I know this works?  For starters, you can “Bing” Myrtle Beach Connection and find me on the first Bing instead of Google?page.  I got there by using this method.  Easy recipe: Blog on AR.  Tweet your blogs.  Watch your business explode.  Just today I got two new leads from my Internet exposure.  You want to know the best part about it?  It is the most cost effective marketing I have in my arsenal! 

 

For those of you still on the fence about paying the AR monthly dues to become a Rainmaker, think again!  For every hour you’re wasting, there goes another potential client!  No more excuses!   Become a Rainmaker NOW!  If you have no clue what Twitter is, here is a link to a blog where you can learn all about it.  Please come back here and let us know just how well this works!

I tweet my blog (love the blue birdie).

This works like a charm.  I hope you start using it, if you are not doing it already. 

Some of you will say:  "I have it on automatic.  AR feeds directly to my Twitter."  That's good, but you can "recycle" your old posts by Tweeting them, long after you write them.  You can also track each blog's statistics by using a shortening service like bit.ly.

I like the automatic AR tweets, as it's one less social networking site I have to think about :)

Melinda:  That's right.  But do you recycle your old blogs by Tweeting them?

Posted by Mirela Monte, Myrtle Beach Real Estate (Buyers' Choice Realty) almost 11 years ago

Melinda, that is an excellent idea to recycle on twitter.  You can't geddt anymore green than that.

Great idea for the stuff worth reposting.  Now, just to find the extra time for everyone we work with.  Thanks.  :)

That's a great idea, Mirela.  I know AR now posts them on Twitter for you (which I do).  But, I never thought to tweet older posts.  Awesome!

Mirela, I like the recycling idea... I've got auto updates from AR set up but when they post to Twitter they are all preceded by "Just posted on ActiveRain:" which I think makes them less enticing.... I think I'll enter them manually from now on.

Posted by Thomas McCormack (Resources Real Estate) almost 11 years ago

Brilliant idea...  I should grab some of the better posts (especially ones that seemed "missed" the first time around and kick them out of the nest again...

Posted by Lane Bailey, Realtor & Car Guy (Century 21 Results Realty) almost 11 years ago

Good point Mirela...I tweet bullets from current blogs followed by my blog address to drive traffic so they'll see the topic when they land.

Posted by John Thomas, EcoBroker, MSEE, MBA (E3 Green HOMES) almost 11 years ago

Mirela, what would we do without you?  This is a fab idea - and so simple.  I have tons of old blogs that were pre-Twitter that I could tweet.  Thank you!

Hi Mirela-  What a great idea for a slow news (otherwise busy selling), day!  We're on day 2 of Twitter, and posting some new blogs, but Ill definitely be trying this out! --Sara
