Repurpose and Reuse Your Blog Posts, Even Stale Ones!

content marketing with missinglettrI constantly find that I’m not dedicating enough time to my content marketing – promoting my blog posts across my social media channels. Too often I just forget entirely! As someone who blogs regularly, I’ve been looking for a tool that could help me with that.

Recently I’ve discovered a very elegant content marketing tool. I now use this awesome widget that pretty much takes care of all of that for me. Now, as soon as I publish a blog post, I receive an email to review a full 12 month social marketing campaign for that blog post. All I do is review the suggestions and make edits if I need to. Takes me about 5 minutes to review this automatically generated 9-touch campaign. My blog post is then marketed across all my different social channels for the next year – driving traffic back to my site.

Learn how to save time with smart automation

Missinglettr turns each of your blog posts into a year’s worth of social updates. It saves me a ton of manual labour and time, plus, since it’s automated, I can set it and forget it!

The friendly folks at Missinglettr are now hosting weekly webinars and I wanted to help you get in on the action.

These webinars will showcase how this tool can help your content marketing. They cover everything from why a drip marketing campaign is so important, right through to showing you step-by-step how to use the service to drive traffic back to your site. You can even ask any questions you might have.

Spaces tend to go quickly, so claim your spot here: Missinlettr.

Why You Really Need to Know All Your Friends on Facebook

I’m writing this post from a veranda with a great view of the north-west Adriatic coast of Croatia, where I’m currently on vacation. This trip is different from our previous vacations in that we’re staying a full 5 weeks, so I needed to bring my laptop to stay in touch with my clients (after I finish this post I need to send an email newsletter for a UK-based client).

Although I did a pretty good job of making sure I have all my passwords with me, I was given a shock by Facebook when I tried logging in for the first time after we landed here. Although I entered my user ID and password Facebook recognised I was trying to log in from a different geographical location and, as a security measure, forced me to confirm my account. At first I thought, great, I like this, but then the trouble started: Facebook used a very unusual method of confirming my account – it asked me to give the names of seven of my Facebook friends! Although I only have a few hundred FB friends, I certainly can’t remember all of their names!

Facebook showed me pictures of no fewer than seven of my friends – but not their default profile photos, but random images from their photo albums, where my friends were sometimes pictured from the side, with other people, or in poor image conditions.

Somehow I managed to confirm my account after two tries, so now I am OK. The moral of this story for you: know thy Facebook friends if you’re planning on traveling abroad.
