Why Sharing Content?
Have you jumped on the sharing content bandwagon yet?
If not, why not?
One fear many people have is that they feel by sharing other peoples content they are going to loose traffic and hence end up loosing money.
Nothing could be further from the truth. If there is one strategy that really makes a world of difference in your blogging it is sharing.
What Is Sharing Content? The basic idea behind sharing content is you are sharing videos, blog post or anything you feel is news worthy with your social networks (the people that follow you).
There are many different ways and places you can start sharing content.
- sharing to social networks
- Sharing to your list
You want to share content for a few different reasons. One reason is to engage your followers/subscribers etc…People remember you when you share something with them that effects them.
Another reason why you want to share content is because other webmasters like myself may have high traffic blogs and your gesture of goodwill goes along way in shaking their hands and establishing a relationship with them.
Also remember the golden rule: Do Unto Others As You Would Have Done To YOU!
