Social media marketing for your blog involves a lot more than just posting to Facebook groups. And let me tell you. I didn’t even know that bloggers were getting into groups on Facebook and sharing each others’s work until last year.

While this strategy does work, most people will tell you that your traffic will go down once the promotion is over and once your content gets pushed further down the line.

If you are in the business of letting others know more about what you do and who you are then you are in the business of marketing. I want to share with you how you can start a robust social media strategy for your blog so you can truly connect with your audience.

I’ve compiled a list of articles that has helped me truly focus on my social media marketing strategy. Let’s dig in!
