You work hard to add content to your blog so why not allow all that great content to be shared to the masses.  Two of the biggest social media platforms right now are Facebook and Twitter.  Millions have chosen to get connected whether socially or for business networking purposes.  Sharing your blog with Facebook and Twitter users is easy with just some simple html.

First you will want to create jpg buttons containing the following text: Share on Facebook, retweet, and tweet this.  You will want to save these buttons on a site like Flickr or Photobucket so that the image will have an http reference.  Once you have the buttons created you can copy and paste them into your blog.  For this exercise you can reference my blog at www.activerain.com/blogs/williams4yourhome.

Now you will need to make the buttons in your blog a link to carry out the specific actions.  Here is the html for each action that allows content to be shared with Facebook and Twitter users.

Share on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/share.php?u=”link of blog post to be shared”
Retweet – http://twitter.com/home?status=RT%”link of blog post to Retweet”
tweet this – http://twitter.com/home?status=”link of blog post to tweet”

Allowing your blog content to be easily shared among Facebook and Twitter users is a powerful way to reach the masses.  The more informative or interesting the blog post, the more likely people that read will share it among their Facebook friends and Twitter groups.  Gain exposure through this viral means of social media marketing.  More exposure allows for opportunities to develop relationships, which can lead to developing potential home buying and home selling clients.  Start sharing…
