Internet Marketing for Milspouse Bloggers post brought to you by SargesList.com – Trusted Military Classifieds.
We love Shareaholic (and not just because of the snazzy name). It is easy to install, and has a great counter feature that tells you how many times your post has been shared.
You want to make sharing your stuff as SIMPLE as possible for your readers. Too many options and they get overwhelmed. If they have to search for a Facebook like button or a Pin It link, you risk losing the share – and the potential traffic. The best strategy is to use only the social sharing sites you know are a good fit for your blog and your readers. Here is a look at just SOME of the many that Shareaholic supports.
Rule of thumb: keep your share bar down to one line and avoid overwhelming your readers with sharing options.
A view at two social share bars
SpouseSprite.com – Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, Printer Friendly, Evernote. and Pinterest.
EVERYONE is on Facebook and Twitter so you have to have those. I like stumble upon because it is great for SEO, Pinterest is super fun, and I always like to have the “print friendly” print option. Also, because I blog a lot and use Evernote to keep track of things, I added the green Evernote E to my blog.
The Hungry Housewife – Facebook, Twitter, Stumbleupon, Pinterst, Printer Friendly, Delicious, Reddit, Email, and Gmail!
What I love about this share bar is that The Hungry Housewife includes Pinterest to share her lovely recipes, the print friendly option, and two options to email posts and recipes to friends! Every food blog should have an easy print and email option.
There are a lot of options out there to share your content, but many are complex and a pain to set up. Shareaholic’s platform is easy to install in WordPress, Blogger, Drupal, Tumblr, and standard websites with a little bit of coding. All of the install instructions can be found on Shareaholic’s page publisher’s page with step by step details and screenshots!
