The next thing you need to do after optimizing your content is to promote it by positioning it where your target audience will come in contact with it. This is one of the most important stages in your content marketing strategy. Creating content is not enough, you need to know how to effectively promote it. There are more than 2 million posts being published daily on the internet and yours will be part of it. No matter how good your content is, it will be useless if no one sees it.

The first method we will look at is using social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. Social Media Twitter Twitter is one of the easiest platform to promote your content.

You need to do this because your audience comprises of people all over the world and it is likely that everyone will not be online when your content is tweeted. However, you need to change the title of your post each time your tweet it to make it unique and fresh. Google+ Google plus is another great place to post your contents. As you post the link, introduce your post by a comment to set the ball rolling. Add hashtags to it to make it easy for people to see. Posting on Google gives you an upper hand when it comes to search engine rankings. This is because Google+ is a feature of Google and it is designed to be more easily found by the Google search engines. Therefore, when you post your content link on Google and your target audience interacts with it, it has a great potential to show up in search engines. Linkedin If you have a linkedin account, post your content on your page and also share it with related linkedin groups. Other social medica channels to use are Facebook, Pinterest, stumbleupon, Digg, Youtube, etc. Guest blogging In part six, we discussed Guest blogging to a great detail, using it as an external linking strategy for your blog/website. Guest posting can also be used to promote your content on relevant authority websites. It will not only give you links, it will also help drive targeted traffic to your website.
