Many of you probably know How To Go Social follows Social Media Examiner on a regular basis. Recently, they posted “6 Daily Habits for Facebook Marketing Success“. In keeping with their message I wanted to share with you their 6th daily habit. I hope you take it to heart and start “spreading the love” too!
The old saying, “Give and you shall receive” is one of social media’s golden rules. By sharing other people’s valuable blog posts, useful articles, entertaining videos and other content, your audience will repay you tenfold.
Make sure to share the content from the influencer’s in your industry. This will help you build relationships and possibly create partnerships with them in the future.
But remember to also acknowledge your fans who consistently produce great blog posts. They may not be well-known experts (yet!), but it’s important to share their great content as well. You can create a fan for life if you take the time to share their great work with others.
Mike Stelzner says it best in his recent book, Launch. He writes, “Every time you share a great link to some relevant content, you’re giving two gifts: one to your base and the other to the person or company that created the content.”
Social Media Examiner is well-known for spreading the love on their Facebook page. Here they promote a great blog post from the popular site, Social Media Explorer.
Take Action: On a weekly basis, take the time to identify great third-party content and share it with your Facebook community. This goodwill gesture will go a long way with your fans and peers.
