Have you ever wondered how to make sure that you provide the opportunity for people to share the great articles on your blog to their social networking sites?
You might recall I wrote about one tool recently that you can add to the side bar of your business blog that allows people to save PDF’s of your articles and even email them to others.
A plugin that you might want to consider for your business blog that is becoming increasingly popular is ShareThis. ShareThis is available to use across a host of blog platforms including WordPress.org and TypePad.com
You’ll usually see the ShareThis logo at the bottom of an article or blog post.
When you click on it you will see you have several options:
- You can post the article and share it to your favourite social networking sites such as Digg and Ma.gnolia
- You can make sure that your friends at your social networks such as Facebook and Twitter know about the post or article you have read
- And you can even email yourself or others a copy.
Of course it’s not just making sure the readers of your business blog understand what the ShareThis logo means – it does rely on us as content creators writing content that people want to pass on to their friends or keep as reference material.
So why not consider adding ShareThis to your business blog? And if you have added the ShareThis plugin to your business blog, perhaps you can share with us your experience of it as a tool to encourage people sharing your great content?
