Finding New Channels To Spread Your Work Online
This is my very first post on this platform. It is exciting- and very slightly intimating to be a newbie and it made me think about the importance of finding new places to share your work online.
I try to find new ways to share content online and then let my audience know about opportunities that I think they should explore.
For example, I'm a veteran of writing articles on LinkedIn- in fact I reached my 100th article recently. The article I wrote about my experiences went viral.
As I was sharing that article I started to notice people talking on social media about this platform and so I thought I should check it out too. I'm looking forward to learning more about how it works and how it is different.
I also share my work via:
- writing guest posts
In my view, while it is important to be represented across a range of the main social media channels it is also important to find the ones which resonate most with you and to focus on them. I'm always curious to learn why it is that some people love sharing content on a particular platform but really don't like using another.
Plus of course, you need to go where the people that you are trying to influence are based.
If you read this article, please let me know about your experiences of using this platform and why you like it. I am looking forward to telling my networks that there is another channel worth checking out.
