  1. Another great article , Melanie. I completely agree with you. From my own experience, Social media is the (only) most important way to promote a website now. I understand website content is the key, however, without effective way to promote the website. The outcome might be way far from your expectation.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful article.

  2. Hey Melanie,
    First of all i want to say thanks. You have done a great job. I am new blogger searching for new different ideas. That Article will help me to improve all that things.

  3. Hi Melanie,

    Its difficult to make our blog posts get noticed at the beginning. Thanks for sharing this infographic. It was really useful.

  4. I never would have thought to add my latest post in my signature. Great idea.

    I’m a bit skeptical about the URL shorteners. I always thought it was good to post the long link for better keyword searches and SEO. Even on Twitter I’ll post at least one full-length post title.

    1. Ryan, thanks for stopping by and commenting! And thank you, too, for RT’g the article. You make an excellent point about knowing your target audience. If you try to be all things to all people, you’ll be disappointed and it won’t work in the long run.
