Social Warfare + Flipboard = A Whole New Traffic Opportunity!

Flipboard is being called a "sleeping giant" that has now awoken in this article on Mashable (http://wfa.re/2B1D3ok) ... and here at Social Warfare, we are ready for it!

Earlier this fall, Flipboard made it easier for any publisher to join the platform.

It's a way for any publisher to reach Flipboard's audience of 100 million monthly active users.

That's right, Flipboard has 100 million monthly active users, making it a competitive traffic source. Publishers are encouraged to promote their Flipboard accounts through social plugins — and that is where Social Warfare comes in!

If your audience is already on Flipboard, you may want to select the Flipboard button so that they can easily flip your articles and blog posts.

We have had this option available for a while; however, with this recent announcement by Flipboard, we thought it was a good time to let you know that it is available.

Recent Improvements to Social Warfare: A Better Way to Include a Pinterest Image for Sharing (http://wfa.re/2nYMZvR)

Since we began our journey to create the best social sharing plugin for WordPress we had a heavy emphasis on Pinterest functionality. Being that Pinterest is a traffic-driving powerhouse, we wanted to give our users the best possible Pinterest arsenal.

The tl;dr version is that the best images for sharing on Pinterest are the tall images ... and yet they don't always necessarily look the best on your website. While our plugin had the ability to hide the tall image and share it when the Pinterest share button was clicked, the Pinterest browser extension and other third-party extensions required that the image be visible on the page.

We knew there had to be a way to make everyone happy ... so we went back to the drawing board ... and wallah!

Social Warfare – Pro now comes with the ability to add a Pin Image for Browser Extensions that will insert the image you’ve uploaded in the Custom Pinterest Image field for a given post/page into the page.

What this means is that your custom Pinterest image will be picked up by browser extensions such as:

▷ The Official Pin Button
+Buffer's Browser Extension
+Sprout Social's Browser Extension
▷ Tailwind’s Browser Extension (Pinterest Pros will love this!)
▷ Many others!

Your blog posts and pages will now be Pinterest optimized with greater sharing accessibility than ever before!

11 Mind Hacks to Humanize Your Social Media Presence (http://wfa.re/2AOMTK0)

We wanted to give this article a reshare today and specifically talk more about "giving your fans what they need" ... in other words, identifying who they are and what their pain points are so we can provide useful and meaningful content to help solve their problems.

For example, we know that our customers and potential customers are always looking for more ways to increase traffic to their blog via our social sharing plugin and social media. This knowledge influences the blog posts we write and the content we curate on our social channels.

By anticipating our audience's needs and providing the information they are seeking, we become viewed as a trusted resource that they can count on to provide them with quality content.

When was the last time you did an SEO audit? Here's a complete guide to the basics via Search Engine Watch: (http://wfa.re/2B71iDF)

A properly done SEO audit should give you a better insight into your website, individual pages and overall traffic. It is a great way to improve performance allowing you to rank better in the SERPs.

It is recommended that you perform an SEO audit on a regular basis (such as quarterly) and before each new project. (Of course, unless you plan to take action on the items you uncover, it is probably a waste of your time.)

Here are the basics that an SEO auditor needs to perform:

1) Technical analysis
2) On-Page analysis
3) Off-Page analysis
4) Competitive analysis and keyword research

Building a Brand That Will Stand Out and Resonate With Your Audience (http://wfa.re/2BNTk0f)

Are you ready to build a brand that will stand out in 2018 (and beyond)? We recently participated in a #ContentWritingChat on Twitter, hosted by Express Writers, feature guest entrepreneur and a personal brand strategist, Rochelle Moulton. The chat was in a Q&A style format, and both Rochelle and the other participants provided some terrific tips and ideas to help small businesses build their brand.

Rochelle said that having a personal brand is consistently presenting yourself and your ideas, so your “sweet spot” audience knows you. Your brand also needs to be authentic. If it’s not, people are going to see right through you.

One of the other participants, Brittany, said something that resonated with us. She said, "Your brand is your personality, your vision, and your mission. It’s all about what you do, why you do it, and how you do it. "

When it came down to the question, "How can you tell if your brand is resonating with the right audience?", we said, "Are people sharing your posts? How much time are they spending on your site? Are they leaving comments, and if so, what are they saying? These are just a few things you’ll want to ask yourself."

Are you a social marketer that wants to better do your job? (http://wfa.re/2AznRks)

"It's the little things that affect your number of shares." - Ian Cleary

Today, we are honored to be featured on +Social Media Examiner's Social Media Marketing podcast (and they use us on their website!) and recommended by both Michael Stelzner and Ian Cleary of RazorSocial as one of five tools that social media marketers need to better do their job.

As Michael and Ian point out, many websites don’t make it easy to share their content, especially on both desktop AND mobile. That's why they both like our WordPress social sharing plugin, Social Warfare.

Here's what Michael had to say about Social Warfare in the podcast:

"The plugin creates social-sharing options that are visually appealing but don’t slow down your site. You can put Social Warfare’s nice social sharing icons across the top of your blog and even where people can see them as they scroll down the post, as Ian does."

"We use Social Warfare on Social Media Examiner (we’re paying customers), and I like the way it aggregates all of the share counts."

One of the things that Ian likes about Social Warfare is how it allows you to add images and custom content to your posts. Ian uses Social Warfare to add portrait-style images for Pinterest so that when someone shares his article on Pinterest, it has a Pinterest-style image and description.

Similarly for Twitter, Social Warfare allows Ian to set up a Twitter image and tweet text that appear when someone shares his content on Twitter. Quite often, articles take the post title as part of a tweet, but the title may not be the best thing to share on Twitter. Plus, you’ll want to share something different on Facebook.

Now, here's the rub. This functionality is important to Ian because he thinks good social sharing can easily double the number of shares on your site. To be good, social sharing needs to work well on mobile, and include the right images and text.
