  • Schedule your Facebook updates and take advantage of the Save function.  Remember, it’s OK to include “Evergreen content” when scheduling.  The general rule is that you can re-post every 3 months.
  • Look at trending hashtags on Google+ to find what’s working and to identify opportunities.
  • Reddit is an early indicator of what’s up and coming. Sites like and can help you find which subreddits to join.  (Make sure you read the rules to find those that are conducive to your goals.)
  • Copy the Reddit moderators. This will increase your chance of being approved.
  • When using Pinterest, the real power for brands is in collaborative boards. is a good tool.
  • Identify who’s been viewing your LinkedIn profile and follow up with them.
  • Publishing on LinkedIn is a great way to gain followers outside of your connections. You can publish re-purposed articles, new articles, presentations, your opinion on a given topic, etc.
