Build a Better Brand Platform:30 Day Challenge (Day 7)

7 Sep

First, thank you for following along with me for a full week as we do my spin 0n Robert Brewer’s Platform Challenge.  It is Day 7  so time for a new challenge. Today’s challenge is…

Add Share Buttons to Your Blog / Website.

Most of the blog services provide share buttons with each post. Do not hide these! Keep as many ways to share a post as possible. Enable every sharing Widget / Plug-In or option and keep them enabled. If you are taking the time to create quality content then make it easy for your reader’s to share this information with their networks. Write things that people will want to share and then make it super-easy for them to do so!

In addition to whatever your blog service offers, you should also go to http://www.addthis.com/and click on the Get AddThis button. They make it easy for you. Select the button options that you think look best with your layout. The AddThis site does all of the HTML code that it takes to place it on your site and will also layout the easiest steps to use that code. It does some other handy things in keeping track of how these buttons are being used.

Test Drive a Few of My Share Options.

Please share this story with as many services as you feel comfortable with.  Include your URL and I will test drive your share buttons as well and share on at least one of the available services (maybe a lot more).

Share Each Other’s Content

When you see good content, share it. Let other’s know in as many ways as possible. It is good for the content creator, good for you as it shows that you know good content when you see it, and of course good for your network as you direct them to quality content. Win-Win-Win!

Comment with your URL and anything else you have to share with the community reading this blog.

    as a complete ignoramus, first of all, what is a URL?
    I thought that little notice Word Press sends inviting you to look at the Likers blogs did the job of sharing – is there another way???
    Sorry to be so clueless…

      URL is the “address” of your page. It is what I have to put into the bar on my browser to get to your page. This is an example of a URL http://www.thisisyourpage.wordpress.com

      Sharing is when you use the buttons beneath a post to share the information on your social media profiles such as Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
