Dawud Miracle shares his successful blog plan in “How Do You Use Social Media To Grow Your Business?”, his story and lessons learned in using the new social networking, bookmarking, and site submission services to promote his blog.
I’ve learned a ton about using social media in the past year since watching blogs – and even more in the past six months since I’ve been blogging. And so now it’s time to push the envelope even wider.
Now I want to bring together the parts of social media – social bookmarking (e.g. del.icio.us, ma.ganolia), social networking (e.g. Linkedin, MyBlogLog, Facebook), social recommendation (e.g. Digg, StumbleUpon, Netscape) and social content (YouTube, Flickr) – together into a program that will help service-based business owners grow their businesses sustainably and with authenticity.
I’m using social networks more and more – learning everything I can about how they work and how they can aid business growth. I’ve read 15 books on blogging.
Dawud admits that most of those blogging books were useless in helping him improve and advance his blog marketing techniques, though he does give credit to my book, Blogging Tips, which he discussed in a recent post.
He lists his resources from other business books and bloggers that have helped him understand this new world of online social media, a lesson we can all learn as we cope with the changing marketplace of the online industry.
Have you used social media to build your blog, yet?
