Microblogging Promises Massive Results To Smart Bloggers

Microblogging Promises Massive Results

Microblogging is a proven method for blowing the roof off your blogging business.

And in fact, microblogging promises massive results to all those smart bloggers who weave this strategy into their business blueprint.

Now, you may not be familiar with the term microblogging, but it has actually become one of the most popular forms of blogging today.

In fact, assuming that you are a blogger looking to maximize your impact in Web 2.0, you’ve probably been engaging in microblogging without even realizing it.

Microblogging is especially popular since people spend so much time communicating on mobile phones.

It’s the perfect mobile phone blogging companion.

What Is Microblogging?

As the name implies, micro-blogging is a tiny, condensed version of blogging.

The big difference, though, is that you don’t conduct microblogging from your own website.

You do it from social media sites.

Microblogging is a powerful method that smart bloggers are using to get their ideas and thoughts across in an increasingly overcrowded world of ideas.

When you do microblogging right, you go way beyond tapping into your followers and friends.

You actually get to stand out and shine in front of a whole new world of readers within your target audience.

Microblogging vs Blogging

Microblogging is the art of grabbing the attention of your target audience by dropping short, quick messages.

It’s a lot easier, faster and spontaneous than stopping your world to research and craft an incredible, lengthy blog post.

We bloggers have heard for some time now that long-form blogging is preferable to shorter blog posting.

Well, that kind of gets to the heart of the difference between microblogging and traditional blogging.

Blogging

So, let’s put this into perspective.

Long-form blogging is a great way to get ranked on the search engines.

Search engines are looking for detailed material that satisfies their consumers.

People act as search engine consumers when they post queries… what we all call “Googling” to get information.

Google and all search engines, build their entire business around delivering the best information possible when a search request is registered.

You want your blog post to be that “best information possible” piece, right?

That’s because you want people finding you high up on the search engine results for your specific topic.

And that is certainly important because, hey, it’s all free traffic to your blog.

So here’s how that works.

If you write a blog post about email marketing, the idea is to write everything in the world that you can think of about email marketing.

Leave no stones unturned.

Link out to other authority sources on the topic.

Add some key images, infographics or videos.

Hopefully, when somebody goes to Google and puts in a search for the term email marketing… the Google bots refer them to your article within the top handful of search results.

And why not?

After all, Google wants them to learn everything they possibly can about email marketing.

If your blog post does a great job at supplying this information, it might qualify as the best information possible.

That’s the rationale behind writing long-form blog posts of 2000 words and more.

Microblogging

On the other hand, you can get some of the most important ideas about email marketing across by microblogging with just a few words.

Or with an image or infographic.

Maybe just a 2-minute video.

That’s microblogging.

Microblogging does not replace blogging.

It complements it.

But whereas even the best blog post you ever wrote will probably never go viral, any random microblog post could easily do so.

And even if your microblog post doesn’t go viral, it can easily muster up far more attention than your incredible long-form blog post.

That’s because microblogging is done on social media, not on your private blog site.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

Social media sites are where your target audience is!

I know, I know.

You’d like them to all be going to your blog every day.

But that’s not going to happen.

Not in the way it does on the huge social media sites that are undeniably integrated into their every breath.

So, the idea behind microblogging is to grab the attention of people in your niche crowd with great social media posts.

When that happens, a lot of those folks will click the link to your blog to see more on the topic, or even because they want to learn more about you and your blog.

So microblogging is a powerful, proven way to mine for traffic and drive it back to your blog.

How To Microblog

Bring attention to what you do.

Make it interesting, humorous, profound, astute… whatever.

Do it with social media posts.

But we’re not talking about simple little “read more about this on my blog” posts.

We’re talking about engaging, even instructional posts that get people’s attention.

Start playing with social media posts that actually deliver results… clicks to your blog.

Then do more of them and do it often.

That’s microblogging.

Microblogging Promises Massive Results

Find the above Micro Blog Guide To Success and Microblogging Tips (posted on Eyeflow)

And remember this, too.

You don’t even have to get people to click to your blog.

Even if they become your social media friends and followers, you have made that all-important connection with people who are tuned in to what you are doing.

Your microblogging activities can lead them to your products and services even if they never visit your blog!

An Example of Microblogging

Twitter is one of the best places for microblogging.

Especially now that it features of 280 characters instead of only 140.

So, for instance, let’s say you want to write a blog post telling people how important email marketing is for bloggers.

You’d probably want to create a great deal of detailed information about that.

So, that’s your blog post.

And to deliver big results to that blog post, you can do some microblogging on Twitter.

Simply tweet something compelling like “every blogger needs to build an email list… that’s where they can best convert visitors into customers, clients and buyers.”

Now that’s a lot shorter than a two or three thousand word blog post.

And it’s obviously not as detailed.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

But it quickly conveys an understanding of just what email marketing is all about for bloggers.

You can then link that microblog to your wonderful, long-form blog post… the far more detailed article that you’ve written on the subject.

Your microblog doesn’t just have to be a clever post, though.

It can be a video, an infographic, a mindmap or a slideshare.

So, without ever going to Google and doing a lot of SEO work to try to convince them that you have valuable content on the topic of email marketing… you simply go to a social site like Twitter and post your microblog post.

In that way, you can attract a ton of people to your business.

You see, one of the main reasons people blog to begin with, is to showcase their authority on a topic or within a specific niche.

In that way, they’re able to attract a targeted niche audience to their products and services.

With microblogging, you can get that whole ball rolling with just a few words and a captivating image.

Sure, you may send them over to the more detailed article on your blog.

Or you may send them to one of your webinars or videos.

But the point is that you’re able to get their attention and show your authority in very short order, instead of constantly writing tons of blog posts.

Where To Do Microblogging

So, where do people microblog?

Let’s quickly go over some of the more common places to do this kind of microblogging.

Twitter

I’ve already given an example of what makes Twitter such a perfect platform for microblogging.

You can use images, videos and text to get strong messages across and send them to your target audience.

Microblogging Promises Massive Results

Read Ways Bloggers Can Use Twitter (by Susan Gunelius, posted on Lifewire)

Instagram

Instagram is great because you don’t need to write much text at all.

With just a picture you can show people what your interest is and what your expertise is in.

The key for microblogging is to make those images compelling enough to draw people into your business, or onto your blog.

Pinterest

As with Instagram, Pinterest gives you the opportunity to showcase your expertise visually.

And one of the nice things about Pinterest is that it is actually a search engine unto itself.

There are many people who look for information using Pinterest as its primary search engine.

That makes it easier for you to connect with your target audience.

YouTube

Most people don’t think of YouTube as a prime microblogging site.

I include it here though because I think it’s actually one of the best.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

It’s so easy to make one and two minute videos that express your knowledge with a certain topic in your niche.

Because it’s video, it gives you an opportunity to connect with your audience in a more personal way.

This really helps you develop your blogging or personal brand in your own unique voice.

And because YouTube is the second biggest search engine next to Google, you get lots of direct traffic from it.

YouTube videos also rank very high on Google itself.

So take some time microblogging inside of YouTube’s video world.

Just a 1 to 3 minute video can teach people a lot, and save you from always having to write long blog posts on every little topic.

Plus, you can get a whole lot more juice from it.

People are much more likely to share a 2-minute video than a 3,000 word blog post.

They know their friends would like to learn things in a short amount of time and not have to spend a half an hour reading some dry article.

Facebook

Of course, Facebook is great too.

But people aren’t primarily looking for information on Facebook.

They’re looking to socialize and get all the latest “news,” ie., gossip, haha.

So it’s not really the best place for microblogging, in my opinion.

However I do include it on this list because if you’re making Facebook Live videos, then you can use them in much the same way that you do with a YouTube video.

In fact, the very same video that you produce for Facebook Live can then be repurposed as a YouTube video.

Quora

Forums have been widely overlooked in recent years.

However, they are powerful platforms for meeting people who are looking for exactly the sorts of things that you offer.

Find forums that people in your niche frequent.

Start posting some microblog content inside of those forums.

Quora is one of the best forums.

But there are many.

And remember, when you’re responding to a question in a forum you are offering solutions that your crowd is looking for.

Special: FREE Guide… 4 Things I Did To Build My Blog Using Only Free Traffic

Those solutions are a form microblogging.

Use them to your advantage and build a huge following in your niche.

Tumblr

Tumblr is an exciting place for microblogging.

Even though you can write full blog posts on this platform, you can also write very brief articles of 200 words or so.

Tumblr has a very active community, and if you connect with your niche, your microblogging can be quite effective.

Microblogging Promises Massive Results To Smart Bloggers

So, think of ways that you can use microblogging in your business.

I don’t propose this strategy as an alternative to blogging, but rather a complementary outreach strategy.

But I think many people get carried away with just trying to blog more and more and more to build a bigger audience.

Then they add guest posting to their bag of tricks and it just gets them all tied up in knots.

Guest posting is very demanding and drains a lot of your time.

I find that most guest bloggers just tend to write more and more and more guest posts to get bigger results.

But it doesn’t always work that way.

And you often don’t even get a real grip on the effectiveness it has in terms of driving more business your way.

So, I suggest you just stop in your craze to turn out content everywhere all the time.

Take a deep breath.

Back off and do some microblogging.

Do it consistently for a few months and see for yourself how it makes your business grow.

It’s really about doing less writing, and consuming less time, while getting more of the results you struggle to achieve.

    Hi Donna,

    Your tips on microblogging are especially of interest to me as a part-time blogger because I’m just finding that my existing blog is really consuming a huge proportion of my online business time, without commensurate blogging results for the time it takes (and being completely honest here I’m talking financial results!)

    I’m really pleased that your article has encouraged me to think that I’m looking in the right direction

    The time I spend on Facebook gives me better results, but that tends to be with my existing contacts, rather than building new contacts, largely due to that same lack of time again. Post engagement is so low these days and I don’t do much direct messaging, because I find it so intrusive when it’s inflicted on me. “Hello dear….” – BLOCK lol!

    Much as I enjoy blogging I’m feeling more and more that as a part-time entrepreneur I need to work smarter rather than harder. This last week, with offline clients and family issues, I have just found myself slipping into overwhelm mode – so I’m very receptive to the thought of micro-blogging.

    I have recently started doing a little micro-blogging.

    1) A Twitter tool that keeps my blog posts alive
    2) Just this last week there was some free training in our business that finally gave me the “Beginners guide to Instagram” that has got me started! I know many people find all this social media stuff second nature, but it just doesn’t come naturally to me.

    Instagram especially has been quite a surprise to me as I personally can’t see the point of it other than a marketing exercise. The thought of flipping through my phone liking photos is sort of “Get a Life” to me. But amazingly, the strategy we are learning has got me more likes and followers in a week than I’ve had in 6 months of Facebook and my regular blog – so microblogging on Instagram is definitely something I’m going to devote more time to now.

    Once I’ve mastered Instagram I’ll look into your other ideas, thanks. For now I’m trying to focus on one new strategy at a time 🙂

      Hi Joy,

      I am so pleased that this article helped. Yes, you have to work smart, not hard. At this point of your blogging journey you can gage very well where people are for you. Social media is awesome and one can get many followers and clients from using it wisely. Instagram is great to pick up new clients when done correctly. Good to know you are mastering it. I use it only for a niche site I have and do get a lot of traffic and conversion from it. I feel like its on auto pilot sometimes lol.

      The time you spend on Facebook with existing clients is gold. Who needs more when you are successful with what you have? I rather have good clients anytime than hoards of people that don’t interact, and moreover, don’t purchase anything. When it comes to numbers it is always best to have quality instead of quantity.

      It is so wise to focus on one strategy at a time, otherwise you will really be stuck in overwhelm. I’m sure you will get that under control soon.

    I really learned a lot from this post Donna. I agree with you on Facebook, if I could point to any level of microblogging I’ve done it would probably be Pinterest. I was glad to see Twitter on the top of your list because my plan is to become much more active there after the first of the year. In fact, I just invested in a premium plug-in that will help me be more creative in that regard. Thanks for all the great tips, I’ve bookmarked this post to come back and revisit when I finish the last of my year-end projects.

    Personally, I will concentrate on twitter as my main choice to
    microblog.

    But as you expertly pointed out, social media in general, with
    regards to consistently implementing your excellent advice.

    Especially now that twitter has come to it’s senses, and allows 280
    characters, I can really go to town with including more relevant hashtags
    with each future post!LOL!

    Count me in! And you’re so right, it’s so much quicker and easier
    to be an effective microblogger!LOL!

      I love micro blogging in order to reinforce my blog. I’ll do a Facebook Live about a piece of my blog post pointing people back to the blog. Twitter is awesome to do this too because they have upped their game and gave us 280 characters so we can get the message out there too. A great way to lead people to where we want them to go.

      Of course keep your traditional blog going!

    Donna,
    Your blogs are always so well organized and informative. I love the way you are teaching a whole new concept, micro-blogging, and then offering your free reports and courses right in the middle of writing about the topic. Instead of the reader having to search all over your page or find the widget, it is right there – easy to click on, exactly what the reader may need after reading up to that section of your post.
    I will really add more micro-blogging – haven’t heard that term used before, but I find that inspiring – and you and your blogging expertise too.
    Warmly,

      Micro-blogging is great to reinforce a blog, an article, even a sales event taking place. We can put the information on one platform and via micro-blogging we can lead everyone in that direction.

    Until now, I had not heard the term mircroblogging but I really like it. I think that I have been doing it though–especially on my Facebook page and Instagram.

    From your description though, even my blog posts are really mircroblogs because it is rare that I write a long post. I have to admit that I became very excited as I was reading because I was expecting you to say that we can microblog in lieu of writing a traditional blog posts. Until I read further…

    At least I will be more intentional when I mircroblog on Instagram and on my Facebook page now 😉

I especially like it if I choose to sell a product and/or service. I can do a review on my blog and do micro blogging everywhere else without being a pushy sales marketer.

    Hi Donna,

    I like it.

    I have been on the micro-blogging platform for a minute on Twitter but even more so after that receive character increase to the high 200’s. Good deal. Because now I go more in depth with the whole Twitter thingee which is genuine, true micro blogging. I may leave a deep thought with one Tweet then follow up with 2-3 or more deep thought Tweets, and I almost have a mini blog post over there. Either 1-to-1 interactions, or for your whole following, using Twitter and those other platforms to micro-blog helps your audience now and hey, it’s the way of the future too.

    As noted, blogging is fabulous for building authority and ranking on search engines and helping folks in a meatier, more in-depth, way. But the way Twitter and the internet is evolving I see this platform growing into a more accepted, popular channel of communication for folks who want their content, like, yesterday.

    Fab points here.

      Yes, microblogging is great way to build authority and ranking.

      Lots of changes coming on the internet these days.

      And yes I agree too, the with the changes Twitter is making (and others), microblogging is only going to get bigger and more important.

      I also think that since the big established bloggers have kind of taken over Google top spots in the biggest niches, more and more newer bloggers are going to turn to microblogging as a way to get their own voice heard, instead of praying to Google to send hordes of people to their blog sites.

    I love microblogging, Donna! 🙂

    I have been doing it without knowing it is called “micro-blogging”.

    This is a form of content marketing to me. Because this is where you go around websites with a community and share valuable content to a specific audience.

    I like to micro-blog on sites like Quora, Medium, Tumblr, and LinkedIn. There are many other sites where you can do this at as well. I do like microblogging on social media as well.

    At the end of the day, successful blogging is about blogging all over the internet helping people in your niche and turning them into a loyal subscriber to your main blog!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers! 😀

    Hey Donna,

    Twitter has always been the best place for microblogging. And people are more into Quora and other social media platforms. I always prefer a short video instead of the 2000 words article.

    Driving the traffic becomes easy on a microblogging platform. It has its own reputation and you just need to spread the words about your content.

      Oh, so right.

      Just getting out there and doing little things all over the place spreads the wods so much faster than trying to do one big thing (like a 2000 word article) and then trying to market that.

      Doing 10 quick microblogs on things like Quora, Twitter etc. earns you far more eyeballs and one big article on your own blog.

      And instead of spending all your time trying to get people to head over to your blog, you spend your time instead sharing valuable information directly with them right where they are.

    Hello Donna,

    Good shout over here 🙂

    Indeed micro blogging could be one of the smartest and quickest ways to establish our authority in the blogging world.

    Its is less time consuming and also it helps to reach out to our target audiences in a lot faster and quicker ways.

      Hi Shantanu,

      The key is finding your target audience.

      Microblogging on various platforms gives you a chance to test them all out and see which ones are getting the biggest, best audience.

      And not only which platforms are getting you the best audience, but also which of your topics are.

      Then run with it 🙂

    Hi Donna,

    I haven’t heard of microblogging, but it does sound like it could be a nice break when you don’t really want to write huge articles. I like how you said that it can be used in conjunction with regular blogging.

    I agree, submitting guest posts can be time-consuming, even though I really enjoy doing it. I may have to give microblogging a shot and see how it works.

    Thanks for the tips on how to make use of it on YouTube. I am actually getting ready to batch record my videos for January, maybe I will try some microblogging videos instead of doing full-blown tutorial videos.

    Thanks for taking the time to share these tips have a great day 🙂

      Hi Susan,

      YouTube is such a fabulous platform.

      I’m always surprised how few bloggers use it.

      It takes very little time to leverage.

      Yet it has its own unique qualities that none of the other social platforms do.

      End the repurposing possibilities for videos are limitless.

    Hello Donna,

    Micro Blogging is one of the best way to drive huge traffic to your main blog. Sites like Tumblr, Quora, Twitter are some of the best micro blogging sites which have large audience base. I am also using Medium as it is one of the fastest growing Micro blogging sites. I have also see your video on Facebook where you are talking about Micro blogging and its benefits. I really like that. Thanks for bringing up these great insights here.

    Have a great day 🙂

      Hi Vishwajeet,

      Yeah, there are so many great microblogging sites now- I didn’t even mention Medium and barely touched on Tumblr.

      And there are others that are good, too.

      So thanks for helping to refine the list some 🙂

      For sure, microblogging is the “new school” future.

    Hi Donna,

    You have picked up and discussed the trendy blogging topic, nice.
    I agree with your viewpoints and yes, it is the smartest choice to establish out footsteps on the blogosphere.
    Of course, Twitter has been used as the Microblogging platform, but I prefer Quora and Medium the most.

      Hi Nirmala,

      Whether you use Quora, Twitter or Medium or anything else you do need to pay attention to what’s working for you.

      It’s hard for me -or anyone- to say which platform is best because no one, single platform is the best for everyone.

      If you’re doing great with Medium and Quora… then by all means move forward with that.

      The real key here is to monitor what’s happening, and not just keep doing something without having any idea whether or not it’s paying off for you.

      No monitoring = waste of effort.

      Who’s got time for that?

      Thanks for your input, here.

      It’s much appreciated.

    Hi Donna,
    I really wasn’t too sure about this term “microblogging” so I was curious. I think you described it well with this.

    .”.With microblogging, you can get that whole ball rolling with just a few words and a captivating image.Sure, you may send them over to the more detailed article on your blog. Or you may send them to one of your webinars or videos.”

    I am already doing it and ai didn’t know the term for it. When I post to my Facebook pages and my Facebook group, Pinterest and my accounts Twitter and Instagram. I link back to my blog articles.

    I see from your article that there are many other places to microblog. Tumblr & Quora and appeal to me.

    Great information on this subject.Thanks so much!

      Without a doubt many people are micro-blogging without realizing what it is. You paragraph do just not familiar with the term.

      Just be careful that you don’t confuse marketing and promoting blog posts with microblogging.

      Microblogging goes a step further.

      It seeks to get add value in and of itself even if there is no link back to your blog. Paragraph

      It’s a way of building up your reputation and Authority.

      It’s not really about marketing your blog directly.

    Hi Donna,

    Microblogging is something that people do not understand accurately. Microblogging has helped me in many ways. Sharing tweets is the most productive way that has helped me not just gain many loyal followers but also helped me boost conversion rate.

    Some people think that microblogging is just about few words, but is more than that. One can share videos, infographics, and slideshows.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Guarav,

    This can be a little bit confusing for people to understand.

    I’m glad you clarified…

    Microblogging is not just sharing stuff.

    It’s really about creating quality information with just a few words or an image or a short video.

    You’re really aiming to promote your personal brand more than your blog… but that ultimately points back to your blog.

    Hi Donna,

    I think microblogging is a hot cake when it comes to getting attention to what we do as bloggers. The truth is, the microblogging I do on Facebook gives me better results than actually posting on my own blog.

    Your post is an eye-opener to me. I will definitely come up with a good strategy for microblogging and leverage on few of the platforms you mentioned in this post.

    I love your articles. They are always detailed, informative and helpful.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Taiwo,

      I have done only a few micro blogging on Facebook and it created more opt-ins to a product I was reviewing and that I use myself.

      I am so happy to know you love my articles.

      Thanks so much,

    Hi Donna, just reading your post about microblogging. I’ve kind of been doing this on my Instagram profile and the engagement and likes that I’ve been getting have been amazing, I think in the new year I’ll definitely think about doing the same on my Twitter profile.

    I remember watching a Gary Vee video a while back and he was explaining how doing microblogging on Facebook has been a huge part of his success.

    Thanks for the post, Donna, hope you have a great Christmas 🙂

      Hi Fabrizio,

      Microblogging on Facebook has been so kind to me personally. There was one article I put up that was received so well and it was about a theme. I received more opt-ins than ever. It surprised me.

    Ryan Biddulph comes to mind when I hear the term “microblogging.” He often posts short videos or short paragraphs on Facebook.

    I try to do the same (although I don’t do many videos).

    It’s funny how a short post can really grab someone’s attention… even more so than a long article!
