I awoke this morning to find that I had an unusually high volume of Twitter follows, my blog readership hit a new high mostly from incoming Twitter traffic, and I have a new email subscriber (hello new email subscriber) and I didn’t know why. Then I opened up my Google blog reader and read the ever informative Jacob Morgan‘s new article on Why You Need a Social Media Marketing Department and he thanked me for my late night Twitter contributions.
If you haven’t read it yet go read it now.
Ok, the lesson here is one that has been stated time and time again from the likes of Chris Brogan, Seth Godin, the guys over at CopyBlogger and well just about anyone else who has used the above title in a blog. Get involved in the conversation.
You want more readers to your blog? Go read other blogs and comment on them. It’s free publicity.
Want more followers on Twitter? Engage to the ones you have and your followers will grow when other tweeple see your name showing up on their friends @ messages.
Thank you Jacob Morgan for the nod, and thank you (new and old readers alike) for reading,
Josh “Shua” Peters
p.s. I stole the whole thanking people for reading thing from Jacob Morgan. I liked it and decided to do it myself.
