I got the e-mail this morning.
What is Flipboard? Well, it's a nifty little app that lets you keep all your social media accounts in one place and helps you find stuff you may be interested in. If you listened to my interview on Sandi Tuttle's radio show, you heard me talk about this awesome tool. If not, then you missed out. Sorry. Like I said, I was waiting to do a post on it until they updated to add this awesome feature I'm about to discuss. Let's get going!
Grab your mobile device, download the FREE Flipboard app, get all signed up with an account, and take a tour with me while I show you how to promote yourself!
Follow along carefully:
- Go subscribe to your own blog via RSS/Atom
- Add it to your Google Reader
- Open Flipboard and add your Google Reader as one of your tabs. Then follow the directions below:
Click on the title at the top of the page and select feeds and folders.
Now we get to how this can help you. Flipboard just added the coolest feature ever: Magazines of your curated content. See those little + signs in the top right of each post? Click on one and create your first magazine with your blog posts. You should add a description and categorize it. Then, go add all your posts to it and make it public!
Others can now find your magazine and browse it with ease. Be sure your image is your logo or branding headshot. Boom! You just reached millions of potential new followers! Best of all, you can also add Facebook content, Twitter content, and many other things to your magazine that concern you and your brand! You may thank me now. Hehe!
Go curate for others, too. Remember, sharing is caring!
Did you use Flipboard before now? Did you know it existed?
Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
