5 Places to Share Content for New Referral Traffic
While Facebook and Twitter are the dominant platforms for sharing your brand’s best content, don’t overlook or disregard additional social networks and online communities where your relevant content will be appreciated.
Regardless of your industry, you can find a Linkedin group with conversations directly related to your field of expertise. In these groups, you can direct fellow LinkedIn members to your blog posts about topics that they are currently discussing or a topic that you bring up for the group to consider. https://www.linkedin.com/grp/?trk=nav_responsive_sub_nav_groups
A great network to share your content that is notably visually compelling, including infographics is Pinterest. Either create a board about your topic or find existing boards about your topic, and link your image to the related page on your site. Your brand will receive a two-fold benefit. Each time you pin a new image, you expand your brand’s presence on a social media site. You also create an additional backlink, which adds credibility to your site as information source for your target audience. https://www.pinterest.com/
StumbleUpon is one of the oldest bookmarking sites on the web, but don’t let its old age discourage you from utilizing this valuable content-sharing network.
