Struggling To Add Content To Your Social Media Accounts? Try Google Reader

You will find that virtually all Websites or Blogs will contain an RSS tab, all you need to do is click on the tab and save the RSS feed into your aggregator or Google reader. This now means that if any updates are added to the blog you will see these updates as well as any previous posts for that blog within your Google reader.

This means that you are able to consolidate any of your favorite Websites into one place, enabling you to be a lot more efficient with your surfing. This is due to the RSS aggregator (Google reader). You are able to do this to as many blogs or websites as you choose as long as they have the RSS feed tab.

How will this affect my Twitter and Facebook Account?

Social media for marketing can generate great results, but one of the main stumbling blocks that people come up against is especially in the early days is generating content for these accounts. Solution?

To combat this problem you need to search the internet for blogs that are of interest to you and your niche market. Just search in Google as you would normally and then press the blog tab down the left hand side of the screen. By doing this you will now get a list of blogs only.

You should aim to load about 70 to 80 blogs into your Google reader, although not in one session, try and build it up over a period of time.
