Using a blog to spread the word about chiropractic and your chiropractic services is one of the smartest things you can do today online as a practicing chiropractor. By harnessing the power of a blog, you can gradually establish yourself as the expert within the chiropractic field for your local community.
In my previous post, I presented a screencast that demonstrated how a blog should become the central hub for all of your online activities. I also covered the importance of leveraging the power of social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. If you haven’t taken the time to view this informative screencast, I highly encourage you to do so.
The power of social media can’t be overstated. Millions upon millions of people are connecting globally through these various networks to not only keep up with their friends and family but also to receive honest input about various products and services. People trust their inner circle more than they do Google when making purchasing decisions.
With this being the case, one of the obstacles chiropractors face is getting their message in front of new prospects who have never visited their blog. A chiropractor’s blog posts may be extremely valuable but if she doesn’t know how to strategically distribute it, prospects may not find it if they only stay within their social media networks.
If you’ve been keeping up with the rapid explosion of Twitter, you should appreciate its potential to make your chiropractic message go viral. Through a simple process known as a “ReTweet”, your chiropractic message can be distributed to an insane amount of people within a very short amount of time.
So, the question remains, how does one automatically distribute a blog post to Twitter?
1. Create Your Account
2. Add Your Feeds
3. Track Your Feeds
Twitterfeed states it like this:
On the Create New Feed page:
1. Connect your Twitter account to Twitterfeed
2. Copy-Paste your RSS feed URL into Twitterfeed
3. Use the advanced settings to customize how the feed is tweeted. (Optional)
Then just click Create Feed and you’re done!
Please note that when you add feeds, it takes Twitterfeed about an hour to initially process them. However once that’s done your feeds should be published within minutes from then on.
Once your feeds are up and running, your dashboard will show you stats on how many people have clicked on each post. You’ll be able to compare posts and see just how Twitterfeed is helping to build your traffic.
So, there you have it. An effortless and automatic way to distribute your valuable content into Twitter’s timeline each and every time you publish a new post.
