Why Every Blogger Must Keep Up with Social Media Accounts Daily

Why Bloggers Must Man Their  Social Media Accounts DailyYou have the social media accounts setup, right?

Are you using them for personal, business or work?

But if you ain’t using for any thing? Why not please…??

Let me tell you something…

Social media world is a big fish or a sea or better say an ocean. Authoritative and non-authoritative, influential and non-influential, celebrities and common persons, CEOs and housewives, doctors and nurses, youngsters and new-born babies, even almost everyone online has social life setup and running on social media sites. And of course booming time by time and day by day.

With this online social revolution, we gigantically have limited our outdoor lives (so sad), our sporting activities and have gotten ourselves struck into PCs, laptops, smart phones, tablets, gaming consoles, etc. and these technological peripherals are destroying what — our real social life.

Okay, I am sorry I am not going to actually debate/write/converse about the technology’s bad effects on our social life. It is not me actually because I love the technological boom in this time as I live in a very small village but I am connected with the great folks like you living anywhere and everywhere in the globe. So, why should I defame the technology while it is giving me never-ending benefits?

I seriously won’t.. won’t defame it at all.

I am actually here to debate on the centric key point of social media’s boom on lives of bloggers. I meant how they can retain their online presence through social media accounts and how social media can give an enormous boost to their relationships with their audiences to further develop and strengthen up.

Role of Social Media in Blogosphere

Like everyone else, we as bloggers do have our accounts set up to capture the like-minded people walking up on the social media sites to find the information. The information of any kind and as bloggers, many may cover the same niche/industry/field. So, it is vital and evident that traffic from social media sites can take a route to run on our blog’s pathways.

But what if we are not really on social media sites?

Okay. Expect to not get your chunk from social media sites. Mind it..

With this scenario in mind, people consume the information, leave the comments as an appreciation and share on their social media accounts. And hopefully that target person may become a referral trigger to send in more like-minded people hungry for the information whom can repeat the same process as the first target person and the cycle might continue, right?

In this situation, we as bloggers need to reciprocate the same act through our social media accounts we embedded into our blogs to stand firm in social media world. And that is very recommended.

Why?

I will tell you a bit later.. just a second.

Why Bloggers Should Man Their Social Media Accounts Daily

Because they must have to. They should be.

By manning your social media accounts for your blogging journey is an evidence that you’re serious. Adding a personal touch in every single reply to your audience on social media accounts makes them to believe you’re respondent, caring, friendly and more on that you’re building up a positive impression in hearts and minds of your audience. Like you’re sticking deep in their thoughts.

This affirms the returning and crafting your audience into loyal ones in the long run.

How Bloggers Should Man Their Social Media Accounts Daily

Yeah, that’s the question with endless answers. The few notables points I observed for myself are the following to do better at social media accounts on daily basis:

  1. Reply to tweets, updates, shares by fellow bloggers from your niche/industry/field.
  2. When possible, reply one-to-one upon receiving mentions/replies as it leaves good impression that you replied individually.
  3. Always try to leave a call to action in replies. It helps to spark the conversation.
  4. Greet your new followers, new friends, new connections and must add a CTA (call to action) but possibly avoid to automate this greeting process. The personal touch is a win-win situation to initiate the friendly bond right from the beginning.
  5. Re-share and re-tweet their updates with always mentioning the sharer and the original source.
  6. Do not worry if you don’t get replies all the time upon sharing someone’s gem. The results can’t stick at 100% all the time. It is all about making relationship, right? And it takes time as well, correct? Keep doing what you do!
  7. Send conversation-provoking updates on social media sites where you know you get connected with most of your audience.
  8. Think social media as a part of your blogging journey hence your audience is and can be present on the social media sites and not just on your blog all the time.
  9. Liking and having favorite are parts of the conversation as well. Most bloggers do very good at mentioning the people liked and having favorite their updates with no reply in words. This comes with the double impact for those people and will spark sooner or later to dive into the conversation.

As I told you earlier, the answers could vary person to person but these are just some very basic ideas I do, will to do and observed over the time.

You know that we put our social media accounts there on our blogs for some reason, isn’t it? If we keep this one simple fact buried deep in the mind that social media is part of our blogging journey, we can eventually do very good and start to make an impact on many living beings.

[Tweet “Mind that using social media is not about making an influence. It is about making an impact.”]

An ever-lasting impact where you are present to talk, to solve, to listen, to respond and to act for your audience to rectify their issues, concerns, doubts and problems which they could be facing now or later.

So after reading all these, still do not plan to consume the power of social?

If so then sorry mate but get ready to write the content for yourself, siblings, parents, relatives and the few non-offline friends.

Over to YOU!

I have few questions for you:

– Are you really consuming your social media accounts to serve you something — get noticed in the blogosphere?

– What types of social actions you’re using if I didn’t cover in my list?

– Are you satisfied with your social power and its result?

Do let me know!

Hello Adeel,
After stepping into the world of social media marketing I realized the power of social medias. Mostly I like Twitter as it’s the best tool for any kind of online business from my point of view. Besides social signal is the biggest evidence of Brand. Am I right Adeel?

Yah, it’s true that high use of social medias have bad effect in our lives as you mentioned in your post. It’s better to keep in our mind that use depends on us. So, we should be careful.

Thanks for your amazing explanation on use of social media as a blogger.

    Hello Sakib,

    Thank you for your contribution!

    Definitely, social media is the biggest sign that brands are there to stay. Brands care of their customers and followers. Actually, it works so well during the hard times such as a hosting company which data center went out of order and they continued to provide support and updates throughout the downtime, they win back the trust from most of their customers and ready-up some more new customers because of great handling the existing customer base.

    Think the otherwise now, such hosting company is down for any reason and they don’t at all notify their customers about the issue in the first place, they will get red-headed faces from their customers.

    Social media is helpful to make yourself connected with everyone up on social world. We all should acknowledge its power.

    Excessive usage can really make us feel so down but if we keep something in mind that we have to use it everyday without any excuses, so we should have to set some set schedule to use it twice or thrice for some set minutes to support our readers, their updates, their shares, etc.

    Thank you once again for the thoughtful comment, Sakib!

    I see you often!

    With that said, we must keep our accounts check minimum thrice time in a day to keep up with what’s happening in social media world.

    Hello Tonmoy bro.,

    True that social media is more than awesome.

    A year ago, I couldn’t get a hold of how one can drive traffic using social media. Now that it is clearer to me once you use social media to network (not market) with like-minded people, you can do so great.

    And I am super excited to see you rocking your name as your domain name. I know that you will! 🙂

    Keep rockin’!

Hi Adeel sir,

I was excited to see the word social media in the title and that caught my attention. I am a social media enthusiast. I love talking about social media and I can go on for hours and hours on this topic. You are so correct, everyone is on social media. And that is what makes it so powerful.

There are countless cons of using technology but there are enormous pros too. I wrote a guest post on Aha-now[dot]com about this topic. I would like to drop a link, I hope you don’t mind. The reason being that I would repeat all the point again; so it is better to directly link to the article which highlights negative effects of technology and ways to avoid it.

I always prefer sharing whatever I read without any intention of reciprocation or expectation for reciprocation. But it is always advised to carefully reciprocate to people who show their support and acknowledge their efforts.

My blog does not perform well on search engines so the ultimate tool for me to get traffic is social media. My all the posts receive more than 1000 page views within 4 days from the day they get published just because of social media. I wonder what would have happened if I didn’t had my social media accounts. Its a great place to drive traffic from. I even get my subscribers from there. I think a lot about ways to make people subscribe to my blog. And since we are connected on FB, twitter and everywhere, you know what I really do.

I enjoy your updates too. The quotes and posts you share are really so insightful which makes me wait from more to come.

The disadvantage can be – It can takeaway all our productive time. So one must be very careful about time management.

I have got to connect with amazing bloggers and marketers like you with the help of social media like FB and Twitter. And for sure, social media is the backbone for bloggers and blogging.

Thanks for sharing this well crafted piece Adeel sir. I completely ENJOYED reading. Have a great weekend.

    Hello Rohan,

    Wow, I am very late in replying to you here… But I assure you that I have read your comment multiple times and it comes to me with new thoughts every time I read it. 🙂

    And that post is too relevant to the idea behind this post. True that every useful thing can become a pain if not used properly or used excessively so does apply on social media.

    Wow! Your stats are mind-blowing! It shows the real power of social media, isn’t it? 🙂 I am lucky enough to find the friendliest club of the awesome peeps like you to do much better in life and blogging. 🙂

    I cannot agree more that social media can turn into time-hogging aspect if not managed properly. The more we get indulged into social feeds, the more we steer away our primary focus to get things done. So, social media should have to be dealt with the basics of time management.

    Thanks again, Rohan bro., for the great input. I so appreciate you liking everything. Real honored! 🙂

    See you often!

    Hello Ikechi,

    Thank you so much for your valuable input!

    As I very agree with you, the thing that our presence over social media has to be manned everyday but giving in too much of the time can be dangerous enough for our own self.

    Once we have set up the assigned time to support our social media updates, I don’t think anything will be cooking in the back-burner in terms of our daily schedule and tasks.

    No doubt social media is the relationship building source! And yet free. 🙂

    Thank you once again for your great contribution!

Hi Adeel,

Informative post indeed 🙂

Yes, everyone nowadays is active on the social media, though it is essential for bloggers and anyone who has their business and is associated with people online. It makes sense because social media means being active socially for which you do need to be out there and make those connections with people.

You are right, there are many ways one can remain active on the social media and networking sites, as you mentioned. Simply by liking and sharing, tweeting and responding to the notifications and tags is a great way to connect with those who are making an effort to connect with you.

Speaking of myself, my blog is one place that’s always got a lot of traffic from the social media, right from the time I started it , and as I am no SEO or traffic expert, this has always helped me. However, it is a time consuming job to maintain your profiles, but if there is a will, you WILL find a way, isn’t it?

Not to mention, that being from the writing field and stepping into blogging – I had to make the connections from scratch. But it’s been all worthwhile thanks to my comments and social visits, shares etc – and now I have so many friend’s in the blogosphere. So I know it does work, provided you spend time and make the efforts also.

Nothing works better than dividing your time in hand into different slots to be present on the main social networks – that’s just the way I’ve managed so far, and it’s going on well. Of course, what works for one, may or may not work for another, for which you need to decide what works best for you, and take it up from there.

Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    Hello Harleena,

    I am sorry for my late response and I so agree with everything! 🙂

    You’re queen of social media! You know I often think of becoming just like you when it comes to managing my blog, commenting, handling social media and everything. 🙂

    Social media is not only the powerful thing but it is the best thing to connect with the like-minded folks whom we have never met yet it sounds like we know them so well.

    Time is everything. When we don’t schedule to fit it with our daily doings, we can end up not completing many and any important factors to lead things to get done. And yeah! not everyone can do the same thing that one is doing as strategies differ person to person and situation to situation , so it is better to think of our things that wok for us. and stick to them.

    Thank you once again, Harleena! You’re more than awesome! 🙂

Hey Adeel,

Good post here.

Social media is important. However, I’m not on it every day at all. I don;t tweet or get on Twitter every day … mainly because I automate it and don’t have time. I rather spend most of my time on promotional efforts than on social media.

That’s just me though.

    Yeah, things may differ person to person and things do work for one but may not work for some despite of being in the same field.

    I also do automate the social updates and that may account for 75% of my daily updates on various social accounts I have.

    You know what? I was about the same some few months ago. Writing and writing without using the social media and apply its power.

    As I came nearer to the serious blogging, I am finding more and focused time to consume on social media to help and get helped by my online friends. After it, things are turning to be good in terms of interactions on my blog.

    So yeah, social media is a powerful and free tool to help yourself advancing into your blogging journey.

Hi Adeel!

I used to be on everyday but due to my schedule, I had to learn and be effective with what I do. So I batched things up, including social media.

I do social media once a week on Saturdays now. Sometimes, I will on some weekdays if I am promoting something but the rest of the time, those are all scheduled out. 🙂

I have to admit, it’s powerful but the time we put on it as bloggers will eventually be minimized as we get busier.

    I do agree with you. Social media is real important for the bloggers who are stepping into it and must have to have them introduced in the blogosphere, yet social media is the best tool at hands to introduce them to the much larger community over on social sites.

    I am the fan of automation as well. I do schedule out the updates in advance for some days so if anything happens that I am not active, things are going out from my social accounts as to prove that I am around. 🙂

    I know that most known bloggers don’t usually man their social accounts on daily basis but they must had done it before and that’s why they are known in this present time. So are you, mate! 🙂

    I know the bloggers who don’t or rarely reply back to their posted updates but they are like big guns in blogging. They are the trend-setter but we are new on this way but I do hope once we reach to that point, we won’t be managing our social media accounts the way they do now because we have a good following now, our fans support us to reach this far and we won’t leave them as we advance further in our blogging journey. 🙂

Hey Adeel,

Great post and I learnt that you come from a small village.

I enjoy social media, but I have my peaks where I wish I could have the same mind set all the time, because I achieve heaps and my output is appreciated, then there are other times I struggle, but it works itself out.

I am still learning all the fundamentals but I am slowly seeing movement. Actually what I should say is I am happy with my progress and the movement has surprised me. I am delighted. Every time I learn something new and put it into action it seems to bring on more people and further enjoyment.

I am at the point where I am learning to market myself a bit more now, but I have no strategy just yet. I am reading so much and this in turn shapes my actions the following days and weeks. When I first started Twitter, I did not understand the point of sharing, but I fully comprehend its value now. And leaving comments, but authentic comments is time consuming (so I have found), yet rewarding in so many different ways.

I have made connects with some great people and I benefit from that and so to does my blog.

You are so right about working on in the social media arena everyday, when I take a couple of days off, I feel a little overwhelmed at the workload of responses.

Thanks for an informative post. Talk soon.

Rachel.

    Hello Rachel,

    Thanks for the compliments, it really is a tiny village where basic IT necessities are a challenge but I am happy to be living here due to peace! 🙂

    Right, social media comes with results after a bit of time and constant giving. The real life example is when you happen to meet with a new person, you can’t make them interest in you right away. It will require time, constant meetup, appreciating them, etc. to get yourself noticed and then the little results start to surface.

    So, that’s the social media. In the beginning, do everything for others and the point will strike that they will be doing for you as well. So, it is a never-ending game.

    Give > Get > Give more > Repeat.

    And you know what? I don’t have a strategy either. I guess that I don’t require it yet but probably will have to get one in future. 🙂 What I want is to set my timing on social media as I am little off from it given the crisis I went through in past month

    And to stand out in the crowd, you have to do what crowd is not doing. Long and qualitative comments are ones from the list. Yeah, it is well time consuming but results are inevitable.

    Thank you so much, Rachel, for this great contribution! You’re really doing so great! 🙂
