One of the first tips I received at Wizzley was to utilize Twitterfeed to attract more readers. Humagaia talked me through the process, and I've been using it ever since.
Once a fortnight, I set up a series of RSS feeds, two or three of them at intervals of half an hour. They pull articles from each of my categories, complete with hashtags for easy discovery on Twitter.
If I haven't written enough articles in any one sub-category to make it worth it, then I pull from the general pool. I use it to promote other Wizzley authors' articles too.
Have you ever noticed a sudden spike in readers, in a category where your work nestles alongside one or two of my own? Then that was the day that my Twitterfeed picked up your link and let the world know about it.
Twitterfeed doesn't just send links to Twitter. You have the option to post to Facebook, LinkedIn or App.Net too. There's no either/or. You can send to all social networks on the list at the same time.
The great thing about this is that you don't have to be there when it happens. I've set up my Twitterfeed before I disappear on a break. I could be sunning myself on a beach or trekking up a mountain, but the denizens of Twitter are receiving word of my articles, as if I was there clicking the button myself.
I've recorded this YouTube tutorial to show you how.
