11 Incredibly Easy Ways to Improve Social Media Results

Are you caught in a constant struggle to keep your social media current, engaging and relevant?

Does it feel like keeping up with the ever-evolving world of social media is impossible?

The good news is that it doesn’t have to difficult. In fact, there are simple ways to quickly and easily improve your social media results.

A few weeks ago, I put together a post that has become one of the top trafficked articles on my blog. “11 Quick Tips to Boost Social Media Results” has received close to 4000 shares across Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and StumbleUpon.

To show you how easy it can be to boost your social media results, I decided to create a visual of my eleven tips.

TIP to Improve Your Social Media Results

Build Relationships

Take your conversations one step further and begin to build relationships. It is poor social etiquette both offline and online to simply blast out a message.

Don’t put up a brick wall of content between you and your followers. Ensure that you are accessible and quick to respond.

Share and  read the infographic and article here: http://rebekahradice.com/improve-social-media-results

Five thoughts on Google Reader's death sentence.

Google announced that it would kill Google Reader starting July 1 as part of its "spring cleaning."

Although I broadly applaud the Larryfication of Google, including the consolidation and focus that requires sometimes unpopular shutdowns, this one surprises me, and I have five points to make about it:

1. I would guess that although RSS in general and Reader in particular have fallen out of favor with the general public (in favor of Twitter, etc.), is Google aware than nearly all tech journalists and bloggers who cover Google rely heavily on RSS and most of them on Reader? Google is taking away the main tool the tech press uses to keep up with news, and its unclear what impact this will have on Google's relationship with the press.

2. Presumably Google would prefer that Reader users use Google+ and the features in Google News that enable you to tailor the news you see for content discovery, but it may have the opposite effect, making them believe that Google can't be relied upon to keep services going.

3. And this is a bit of an announcement, but I am preparing to do an experiment whereby I use only Google products for one month, hardware and software and service. My experiment will take place before the Reader shutdown, but I am planning to rely on Google Reader heavily during that month. I'm not sure the experiment would be possible afterwards.

4. It seems to me that Google never tried to monetize Reader. With advertising, it seems like it could have been self-sustaining, because....

5. Reader seems like an ideal harvester of "signals" for advertising and other efforts by Google. It tells Google exactly what users are interested in.

Anyway, I'm surprised by Google's decision to kill Google Reader; it seems to me that the benefit of keeping journalists, power users, developers and other Reader users happy would outweigh the costs of keeping Reader alive.

What do you think?
