One of the best promotion techniques I know involves getting others to spread the word for me. Tweet this
This means doing two things:
1) Post original content that people are inclined to share.
2) Make it easy for people to spread the word a la the “Tweet this” button above.
So, when I blog about speaking and presentation skills at MichaelAngeloCaruso.com, I almost always include a “Tweet This” button that allows reader to share that particular article with their Twitter following.
This is accomplished by simply pasting a simple snippet of html code.
[Note: You're welcome to republish this article on your website, blog or in your newsletter. Simply send Michael a message, stating your intentions.]
Paste a nifty “Tweet this” button into your blog post
Save this snippet in a place you can easily find it. Here’s the code for the “Tweet this” button:
This is not “technical;” anyone can do it!
Be sure to paste the code into the “html” view of your WordPress site and not the “visual” view.
If you save the snippet to a Word document, remember to paste it into Notepad prior to inserting it into WordPress. This will strip out all the invisible Microsoft code that can wreak havoc with your WordPress formatting.
